Entry in the 2011 MOCathalon in the Fantastic 5 category.
About this creation
We are the Savage Gerbils! A wondrous team made up of three healthy and two ailing crime-fighters, we go where almost everyman/woman has gone before, preferably ahead of us! We are heroic! Majestic! And we will gnaw on our opponents until we reach victory! MOCathalon
This is in Category 19: Fantastic 5
This is the first build I have ever done in miniland scale, and the first build where I have used cut Lego stickers. Wish me luck!
Here is Alex Mac, also known as "Mac Attack!" He is fast and furious, always rushing into danger, sometimes without reading the rules correctly (coughcoughOLDMASTERSCATEGORYcough)*excuse me*. He wears no pants to reduce drag, and is for that reason shunned by his opponents and team-mates alike. Either way, he is a vital member to the team, as he can build in almost any genre, unless it entails building wearable pants.
Roger Brickjet, also known as "Grandpa" has a debilitating illness known as "ABS." This disease, artificial blood syndrome, makes him very smart, but also very slow and fickle. he is the ringleader of the group. His powers include being extremely slow, in walking and building as shown in his first entry posted in the third week, and paying in exact change. He may sound unimportant, but their mutual dislike of him keeps the group together.
This is one of my favorite profiles. he has a great nose, funny saggy bottom, socks with sandals, an oxygen tank, walker, glasses, and a creepy beard.
Josh Cooper is an enigma. He broke all of his bones in the first mission and was put in a full body cast. he insists on being pushed around by Alex, but is mostly used as bait in getaways. As you will see later, he is automatically dumped to provide a distraction. The team cast him late in the game when they needed one more member.(Actually, that did happen. Also, the pun is intended.) He has no superpowers and is essentially useless.
Josh is equipped with a wheelchair and an IV drip. YOU CONTROL THE ACTION!!!!!!!!!
Ezra B. is the most powerful member of the team. No one knows where he came from, and he rarely speaks. When he does, it is to add a very philosophical insight to the team's discussions. He is probably a robot, and has one arm with fingers (I used Ezra's own 5 T-pin technique) and an arm with a giant blaster. he is bright colors, for those seem to be his favorites.
Cool pose with FLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tyler, or "Slim" is another member of the team with actual powers, like Ezra and Alex. He can stretch. Originally , he was just tall, but the experiment of a mad scientist made him even more freakishly tall than he originally was. Although he has actual powers, Slim barely uses them to fight evil. Instead, he grabs far away objects and pulls himself away to escape more quickly, after pushing Josh over of course. He is second in command to Roger, not because he is powerful but because no one cares.
The side. the scary thing about this is except for the odd twists in the middle, this figure looks remarkably like me. I'm sure that that is also the same with Roger.
Battle! Watch them in action against an invading fleshie army. Shifu gave me the okay to mix miniland and minifigs, in case you wonder.
Josh, left for bait as usual. the fleshies are gangsta' kicking him.
Roger, armed with coupons, is ready to capitalize on some well-priced prunes.
Ezra is actually fighting. He cares for humanity.
Slim is looking for an escape route.
Last, and most definitely least, Alex running. Most likely away.
I want all of my teammates to know that this was all done in good fun. I did not mean any of the offensive things said in here.
You are currently a member of the Metal Legion Recruiting Command. This notice is provided to help members remain in the group, and is not intended to be a form of pestering or harassment. MLRC is going to battle, again, and your participation by group members is crucial. The name of the battle (itís a group) is CONTACT BRAVO ONE. The battle will run from 1 AUG 2011 to 31 AUG 2011. If you have never posted on MLRC, and you have not posted in this battle by 31 AUG, then you will be dropped from MLRC. This would be a shame, because your building talent and creativity are the life blood of the MLRC. How do you post an entry in CONTACT BRAVO ONE?
First, you need to post a Garrison, or a Militia squad on MLRC. Go to this link and follow the instructions:
Then join the group CONTACT BRAVO ONE at this link, and again follow the instructions: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/17909
You must complete both steps, and you must do them in the order listed.
Right now, most of MLRC members are inactive, and this does nothing to help the members who are active. The purpose of the site is to help active group members to become better builders and better communicators. I am glad you joined the MLRC, but joining only got you to the door. Step in or step out. Either way, thank you for your attention in this matter.
Build! Post! Review! Attack!
I couldn't help laughing at them all! Being that you've never met me, you actually got my characteristics right, I love to run, and I usually say "to heck with the rules". Funny stuff, using Ezra's techniques and designs really added to his.
