MOC Olympics Round 1
My entry into the first round of the 2011 MOC Olympics.
About this creation
WARNING-------LINK FOR SAFETY!!!!------> MOC Olympics HOME

After a few brief days of "WTF were the judges thinking", I still had no clue what to create or even a category that interested me. While I thought I would be cute and make a miniland Earth, Wind, and Fire band....Batman said we could only use one category. Bollocks.

My category is "Winter", and is a chainsaw carved ice castle made by the infamous ice castle carvin', chainsaw wielding twins -- Hans, and Hanz. They don't need a last name, because I can't seem to make one up at the moment.







Here we find a spectator ooooooooohing, and ahhhhhhhhhing at their spectacular sculpture. I love those little minifig "OH Faces".



Here we find Hanz and Hans finishing the rear corner of the castle. Nearly 3/4 of the way done, the boys are anxious to get home and down some brew.



A photographer from the local newspaper snaps some photos for the morning paper.



Here we see Hans carving away. Get it....Hans? As in Han Solo.....as in I'm using a Han Solo torso........oh never mind!









Hanz is a bit more shy than his brother, but is still rockin' a Han Solo torso.














Well there ya go, my first entry into the MOC Olympics. I honestly didn't think I was going to make it in time. I had a last minute business trip to Germany the day before we got the categories. Then I saw the categories while I was in Germany, and decided I would rather work than try and figure out what to do. Then I came back just in time for my family to come out for a visit to celebrate my daughters' 5th birthday (good times), followed/paralleled by some damn cold I brought back from Germany. I was thankful I had all night to put something together yesterday when my wife said "Don't forget we have the business dinner to attend tonight." Shit.

All came out well in the end though. After sacrificing 3 Christians, a bottle of Sailor Jerry's rum, a few pints of Smithwick's, and a nice healthy dram of Oban 14 I was good to go. A couple more Christians probably would have netted me better lighting for my pics.....but beggars can't be choosers.

Inspiration was last minute, but I definitely studied Stacy Sterling's ice castles for a general idea. She's much more talented at making them look more detailed than me though. My general idea was to make a sculpture in progress with ice being flun by the chainsaws. I believe I achieved my objective for this round. See you in the next.

Heath, I'm hesitant to comment because I'm worried you'll take anything I say as a pity remark, but honestly, this is probably my favorite idea that I saw in the competition for illustrating winter. So...yeah... *slinks away*

Considering your whole situation, this is a very cool creation. The 64 winners of the first round can be glad that you were ill and had to spend time in Germany.

I like the look of the ice being tossed up quite a lot. It's a pity you didn't make the next round, as you are an excellent builder. Nevertheless, nice work and good luck in the side games!

Very nice, pfff clean language, you can't write/say stuff in public but it's ok to do in videogames or action movies ? rubbish, we should all use the unique word known as the f-word, it's so convenient :P

N-ICE Castle. lol. My entry included YOU. Bt neither of us moved forward. Bummer.

When I saw the thumbnail I thought for sure that Phipson had posted an entry with your name on it *SMACK*. Its a shame you weren't on top of your game here Heath. Round two would have otherwise easily been within your grasp.

You easily catch a cold in the german summer. No wonder you built an ice castle afterwards. Well done under those circimstances.

Haha. Nice. :) I'm a little disappointed you went with just the chainsaw blades though instead of making a whole body for them.

Nice to see you taking on a "fresh" theme for a change. Good "transparent" build and "cool" set up. The figs are the "icing" on the cake...Good luck with your judges!

Bang up job Heath, or are you Hans? I forget, anyway, you pulled a nice one right out of your arse that is sure to get you to R2. Great looking effects and an overal "cool" build.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera Also i must say to try and keep the language clean, i am tempted to swear on here sometimes but there are a lot of kids on here.
Most of the kids play Call of Duty and Halo. Cuss away my friend....cuss away.

Quoting Yuri Fassio The ice spurts are a great touch, but the girl in short sleeves slightly detract from the "winter effect".
Hence the "OH face" and the rosy cheeks.

No wonder you were close on this, you were dangerously low on the usual 'Heath functioning standard' of alcohol - that being enough to disable four donkeys. Nurse, get this man a bottle of schnapps, I hear it's pretty good for colds. Joking aside Bane, glad you got it in (snigger)and I hope you progress. Good luck mate!

When pushed, your imagination goes into overdrive and you do something like this. Creating something in trans Lear must be difficult, but you do a nice job here and making it a work-in-progress is a great touch.

This is great and the idea was worth waiting for, i'd love to have a go at ice sculpting, i have a chainsaw but not enough ice lol. Also i must say to try and keep the language clean, i am tempted to swear on here sometimes but there are a lot of kids on here and i'm not sure you'll win any favours with the judges. Just a friendly hint ;)
