Welcome to my Moc Olympics Round 2 entry against Gabriel Thomson. Our category was 8-bit video games and after some internet searching this is what I came up with.
After some internet searching I decided to make a Mario entry. The MOC features a Mario scene mounted in a TV housing. I made the TV split so it was easier to acsess the scene. I also added an NES system which is what the game was played on. Thanks for viewing this entry and best of luck to my opponent.

A final shot.
Thankyou for viewing this MOC. I dont think I will progress judging the past MOCs of my opponent and I wish him the best of luck in the following rounds!
Hi tk! nicely done, I really like the tv concept! the play of depth, and theater style built had my imagination running a few secs, it reminded me of a creation I ve once seen on the net with an nxt! a theater with a pirate boat, very neat!!!
Like the other judges, my vote went to your opponent. But, it was a good round for both of you. You did a VERY nice job with the category, and your build was solid, with a good presentation. You may not be moving on, but you did yourself proud in this round all the same.
I'm sure it's disappointing that you won't be moving on, but it takes nothing away from the creativity and quality of your build. In the end, perhaps you would have been better suited focusing on the 'game' rather than the addition of the console, but it wasn't a bad idea and I see where you were going with it. It really was a solid build, better luck next time.~H
Honestly, you and your opponent's creations for this category were both incredibly good. As Dave says, your opponent was probably more in the category, but both creations are stunning and exhibit an equal degree of skill, cleverness, and creativity. Great job!
AAARGHHH! Why does everyone always say "I don't think I'll make it to the next round." That could seriously affect your judging, because it leaves a negative feeling. So, even if the MOC is nice, you're left with a sour taste in your mouth after reading that. I thought that this MOC was great!
Mr. TK, I really enjoyed your take on the category. Your presentation was quite well executed and you added so many fun details. In the end, your opponents build had more of an 8-bit feel and he received my vote. You did a great job, and should be proud. ~Dave
Nice work, i like the way you have framed your scene, adding the TV and the gaming platform itself. The green worm thing in the scene has lots of character as well. You certainly don't need to sell yourself short here. Best of luck with the judges! :)
