Inside the complex thoughts of the builder Eric 'Hawk' Mickle we stumble upon what he calls "My Entry for the Sig Fig Contest." We tried to film un-interupted, but we were captured by the builder. He agreed to show the public what was in this section.

About this creation
Another thing to mention: part of the deal was to let him give the tour, he said it would be “highly accurate if I gave the tour.” So what you see is his projection of himself.
“Hello, my name is Eric Mickle, sometimes called Hawk. I’ve been asked to give you a tour of this section of my mind. This section is part of a large chunk of my thoughts reserved for LEGO ideas. Now this small section is dedicated to my Sig Fig collection. To answer your question, no, I don’t have just one Sig Fig. Do you have only one outfit? I thought not.”
“My apologies for the new flooring that has not been furnished yet. There was a certain ‘accident’ caused by one of my projections. No I can’t just fix it automatically. That would require me to close down some important thoughts, to get the energy.”
“My first Sig, is Captain Mickle, an ODST or ‘Helljumper’.”
“This is a scene in my written history for this character. It is during the Insurrection (this is Halo by the way), more specifically the take-over of Luxor. In this scene is the fig, a bomb crater with flames and a fellow trooper’s helmet, and some really bad forced perspective.
“I thought I’d give a closer look to show the Trooper’s helmet. Question, is the trooper alive or dead?”
“Now to a scene from my unsuccessful series, Sig-Fig Madness.”
“This is where I was captured and they attempted to torture me. I had warned them not to remove my shades, but the fools that they are, took no heed. These shades were specially made: a few years ago I hired a master craftsman to construct some unique eyewear that would cause anyone but the owner to burst into flames. Upon creation, the craftsman then, haha, burst into flames! That fool expected me to pay for a service.”
“Also in this vig you see my true form, or what I want you to think is my true form. Maybe under that hideous face is a worse one hiding.”
“Here we see a vig that is copy of an apartment building in probably my most popular series, CYOA.”
“The fig has no face, because I only have the supplies for one blue sunglasses head.”
“In this vig I rebuilt the front door of the building with one detail switched, the intercom, it was switched out with the digital clock. On that clock is four numbers seen, or uttered throughout the series, 1201, my address.”
“The fig here has a bandolier to hold equipment in this apocalyptic world, he wears a combat helmet, camo pants, classic zip-up hoody, and carries a revolver to put those zombies in their rightful place.”
“We have arrived at the last exhibit in this section.”
“This is my soldier for the mission based group, Fractured Earth.”
“This is a scene from the first mission I built. My task was to infiltrate a bunker and rescue my squad mate, Grif. The setting is on a road in the deserts of Uzbekistan. Rocks are partially covering the edges of the road, and there is a crude barb wire fence.”
“That concludes our tour. What? Speak up please. Yes I can wear these, they won’t burn me.”
“Last thing to show you all is a cool effect the light had on these trans pieces. The piece is supposed to be a small light, and thanks to the lighting used here, looks as if it is a light.”
“Thanks for looking. Fellow contest members, I will comment on your entries soon.

Great MOC! The little 'hole' in the floor is well-done.
