Hello, Mocpages! My category for Round 2 is "Street Action", and at first I was stumped. Then, like Edison, a lightbulb appeared over my head, and I busted out the Legos.
Before I forget...
Here's the MocOlympics...
And my gracious opponent Matty Pondiscio's entry can be found Here.
So, without further ado, I now present to you...
Trouble At The Pizza Parlor!
Here we see the young cashier being forced to give up his money/valuables to the mysterious robber.
Bother! The dastardly villain has blown a hole in the hole to gain entry!
Here's the inside again. Notice Sue's calm expression. Nothing fazes Sue. By the way, is that sitting technique new? I haven't seen it. If you find something, tell me please. I'm interested to know if I'm the first!
The attic. Skeleton included. To keep with the rest of the creation, I tiled the roof and attic too. That itself took a good hour or so. Ugh. I really need to do some sorting. The hole serves two (2) purposes. One is for light, and the other is to take schweet angle photos (Which were turned into security footage).
Ah! A schweet angle photo! I couldn't resist turning some black and white for security camera footage. You like?
Sue: Why does this happen on MY lunch breaks?
Cashier: I know, right?
Oopsy! Me blew hole in wall! So very apologies!
Here 'tis with no roof on. It's really hard to take inside shots, roof or no.
To the outside! Awaaay!
Here's where my category comes into play. "Street Action". I'm supposed to show cops, firefighters, etc. doing what they do. I chose cops.
The Phipsonator! Battling crime since [insert year here]!
Snot Street. Named because of some SNOT work. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, actually. 'Cause me, I don't do SNOT. Yeah.
Snot Street rests in a niche in the sidewalk. Therefore, the pizza place is elevated one stud. How invigorating!
The front door. The whole building was quite inspired by the City Corner set, with a big change. That is to say, I made it 6 studs deeper.
Here's the back of the building. I used quite a few windows, no? I even took a few pictures through them. Handy!
Here's the whole kit 'n' caboodle. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, actually. It's one of my biggest creations not limited by a baseplate.
Ah! At long last, the villain's face revealed! The head is from a Ferrari set, It fits perfectly, no?
Phew! 9 hours of building, stopping, building again, revisiting, SNOTing, and now I'm finally done! Now, let's let the judges take over!
If you aren't a judge, please leave feedback! Thanks!
I used that sitting technique a couple months ago, but I'm pretty sure it must've been in existence before that, as well. "There is nothing new under the sun" to quote one of my favourite works of fiction. Anyroad, good luck with the judges!
