The Prohibition
This is my entry into the MOC athalon for the Theatrics category, team Inglorious ABSt&rds. GOOOOO TEAM!!!

This is my entry into the 2011 MOC Athalon.....category is:
28. Pathos and Theatrics:
Build a scene which will impress the judges with your grasp and understanding of pathos (sorrow, sadness, suffering) or theatrics (exaggerated mannerisms or displays of emotions). A simple example: A kid who throws stones at a tank or a lone soldier facing dozens of oncoming enemies - there are no limits for your creativity, but please, be creative as a clone on a plate surrounded by 100 battle droids will earn you a low score and the judges scorn. There are no size restrictions on this one.



For the first time in MOCpages history, Officer Phipson has decided to enforce a prohibition (banning of alcohol) through out the pages. For this pirate that can only mean one thing.......PANIC!!!!!



I leap for the glass that Phipson has taken from me. What else can I do....alcohol runs through my veins. I need a 1.0 BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) just to survive!



Chris stooped pretty low by calling in the "clone squad".



Somehow he was able to convince Leda to get in on the act. Maybe it was one too many drunken rants.



I was pretty sure I was at an Irish pub, but this chap looks more like a biker......a gay.....hey, wait a minute! Am I in a gay bar?! Why does he get to keep his drink Phip? Ohhhhhhhhh.....I get it...wink, wink!



Even Giggles gets in on the act, as Chris' cronies destroy the liquor behind the bar.





The bartender (what a hot wench!) runs for cover.



Bottles are falling off the shelves and smashing to bits!





One last shot of me in panic mode.

Commentary:
Shifu was supposed to be in place of the clone kiddie. I was hoping to nail all the judges, but didn't want to clutter up the MOC with too many minifigs. Unfortunately I moved recently and have seemed to misplace Master Shifu. I'm really bent about that, and I plan on tearing apart my collection over the weekend to dig him up. It just ain't right to not have the master of bacon on hand!

Anywho, it took some thinking, but I finally figured out how to convey an emotion to the crowd....and nothing makes me panic more than being without BOOZE!!!! LMAO Hope you all enjoy! Gooooooooooo TEAM!!!

This is a great build and really captures action well. Congratulation to you and your team for laying the smack down on all us lowly plebeians in the MocAthalon.

Certainly got me to empathise with our brave hero. Luckily I know what you have stored for your celebrations today so it's all just a scary dream. Enjoy your Jamesons mate, although why you've got Baileys is beyond me - stuff is only good for making ice-cream out of.

Kudos to you for having the courage to face your darkest fears - you're a braver man than I (Lego prohibition being my own concern, but I'm too cowardly to consider the possibility)! Now go have a drink and savor every glorious drop!

Quoting El Barto ! Two actually, no eye patch, no beard.
Nah, that's his second glass eye and the beard was in fact smut from dusty whiskey bottles, now gone thanks to the prohibition. But you'll never find such a hot bartender wench in a gay bar.

Excellent! The foot rails along the bottom of the bar are cool. I am also really taken with all the broken bottles behind the bar, and any time a monkey is involved, the MOC is just that much better. To be completely honest though, what really jumped out at me was this line from your write up: “I was hoping to nail all the judges…” Well…It’s a goal I guess…Audacious and totally unexpected. Definitely a Pathos heavy message. Attack!

Nope!! Never! That can't be me in there! Chris must have drugged me! He must have bribed me with dark tan lego bricks again... 4 points.

Nice one. Great use of camera angles. Now show us the after effects of this little incident -- your foot being surgically removed from Phippy's rear access panel!

My drinking years are over for almost a year now, but I'd have looked exactly like your sigfiggy without booze in the house. Alas, there's one error in this MOC. Can you find it?

We share a common affliction, and we must unite against the great evil known as Phipson. Nice build.

I definitely sense the raw and powerful emotion in this build, and I empathize with the protagonist. What shall he do? Where shall he go? Is life worth living? Well done!

So you are kind of like a shark. Have to keep swimming in it to stay alive. I do like the bar and particularly the wall texturing. Simple idea but strangely effective.

One word: moonshine XD My mind has gone blank, I don't know what they're called, but I love the detail at the bottom of the bar, such a nice touch and strangely adds to the believability of the motivation behind the whole scene.

Quoting Hans DendauwNPD Chris told Giggles it was a bodega and to find the mota. LMAO Thank goodness Chris doesn't have that kind of power, we still have two and a half weeks of building to do and I need you as drunk as possible! LMFAO Are we going with the clean shaven look now or is your head with the missing bacon lover?~H
Is it wrong that I know what mota is? LMAO Don't tell the FAA! Staying sober is like getting a rectal exam.....there's never a good time. I got like 90% of my collection sorted since I moved, but the minifigs always seem to be last...I just couldn't find a shocked face with facial hair...but I assure you I haven't shaved yet, so my chin is always ready to tickle your.....WHOA! Look at the time!
