2011 MocOlympics Round One: Spring
Uh oh... The birds are angry...
About this creation
Round Eins of the 2011 MocOlympics, for the category Spring, with the subtitle "Angry Birds". You know the drill at this point.

So I needed something to build, so I brainstormed and played Angry Birds. Then I thought, "It would be awesome to build Angry Birds out of Lego, and lo and behold it fits the category of Spring, given that it's in a Spring-y setting. So I set about building Angry Birds. Now let's see some pictures.




Release the Birds!


Oink!


Oink!


Here's the full diorama. 80x32...


Upperness.


White bird: Somewhat useless, You sling it, then tap the screen to drop an egg bomb.


Back of said bird.


Black bird: The most useful bird. Sling it and tap the screen to make it explode. Mean, but useful.


Banananananana!


Red bird: The leader. Weird, seeing as it's one of the worst. It has no special actions.


Woosh.


The slingshot was the hardest part, but the most pleasing to me. I used two pieces of flex and strung it up with brown cylinder pieces. It took me a long time to figure this out, and it paid off.


The tread is attached by stuffing a minifig hand into the gap between treads, then clipped onto the flex, which is tragically yellow.


Back row: Red bird, white bird, black bird. Front row: Ham 'Em High pig, Big Setup pig. Not pictured: Everything else.


There you have it, my Round One entry. As a side note, this is not copied from Paul Vermeesch's excellent creation . I discovered this after I was halfway done with the diorama. Sorry for being so similar, Paul!

And here is the all-important link . I didn't forget it !

Did you base this off of Paul Vermeesch's as well?

I'm not too much into computer games, but even I know the angy birds. Like Dave already mentioned, that this kind of popularity might have been a disadvantage in this case. But the slingshot fascinated me.

Angry Birds rule!!!! I think it's built well, and really shows the action. Just not feeling the category here. But nice work!

Espen, Angry Birds was a good idea for spring and the slingshot was well designed. I guess there have been quite a few Angry Birds MOCs recently and you may have fallen victim to familiarity. I wonder what you could have done to make this more original and interesting? Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave

I knew I had seen these birds before, but come to think of it, there's not many different ways to build these. You pulled it off great! Good luck with your judges!
