MO R2 - Yuri Fassio Vs Jason Corlett - "Wide Load"
"Wide Load" - a diorama built for the category "Status Quo".
About this creation
For this category of the 2011 MOColympics, Jason Corlett and I were asked to put a fantastic element into a trivial situation, specifically something boring/bothersome/annoying.

Now, I know very few things more boring and tiresome than helping a friend move. Especially when you're dealing with fragile stuff which you can't understand why he isn't handling himself, but instead he keeps telling YOU to be careful.


Here you can see the humungous Gruntor, the giant Apebot from the renowned cybernetic jungle planet Kallock helping his earthling friend, professor Boltz, to move.


Of course being a 250 meters tall apelike mechanoid, Gruntor finds it quicker just to relocate the whole house.
Just try and guess: what's the good professor yelling to him from the red chopper?


"Hey! Be careful with that!"


Of course you can tell this was inspired by a real life experience, and if some of the Judges ever found themselves in the same predicament, I should be able to win with poor Gruntor's facial expression alone :)


All in all, Gruntor's head took nearly as much building time (building more and more heads again and again trying to get the expression right) as the rest of the entry.


I could do with more green and brown pieces, but all in all I'm completely satisfied by it. Whether I win or lose, I gave my best, and the rest lies in Jason's competent hands.

Here you can see the nanoscale town of Rodan By-The-Bay.
Enjoy the view of the detailed residential area, with the tiny houses and their terraced lawns with little driveways.
You can see the church and the hospital (the one with the hypo on top lol) then the grey condos and a luxury hotel.
Also the docks with all the docks stuff.
It's encased in a simple 1 stud wide black frame to better... well, frame the scene.


Church and hospital, and the Bay Area Hotel, blue like the sea.

This was added after posting, but before adding this to the group. I had simply forgotten to shoot those buildings)

-

The tiny vehicles I was forced to design to give it a hint of life.
Cars and a sports car.


A car with a trailer, a dump truck, and a mixer truck.


Get to tha choppa!


-

Gruntor surely is NOT among the brightest alien living machines...


... but you truly don't want to piss him off.


With a shoulder breadth of over 200 meters, he still gets his fair share of respect.


Note #1: as kindly requested from the judges, I changed the link from Jason's page to Jason's entry once he posted :)

Here it is. May the best MOCer win!
And of course comments are welcome.

Well, I'm out. I'm glad it all came down to the building quality instead of interpretation. The best MOCer won :)

Yuri, your micro is truly unique and beautiful, and your bionicle is (as always) excellent, but I'm afraid I had to give the edge to Corlett in this one. Basically, if I've got a choice to have either a raging Italian or a raging Canadian coming to murder me in my sleep... No hard feelings, man! You did great!

Way to play to your strengths, Yuri. It took me a bit to figure out what was going on with the head there; well done. As others have said, the hand gesture is full of life and very expressive.

I've read your category description several times now and though it was probably not the intention of the judge who came up with it, I don't see a violation. And though I'm not a huge fan of bionicle, I give you my vote, Yuri. Gruntor's expression is spot-on, just like the hand posture.

Nice. And so surprising you used Bionicle elements ;-) That theme gave you free field and you came up with a very nice story junction to your hero. Always like your stuff. Its partially your work that I have some 50 pounds mostly unsorted Bionicle parts meanwhile. Next year, I will head into your MOCS and get some technical advice there. Bionicle feels hard to get into its building rules... Hope you are goin to 03.

Quoting Aidan Bryant That is a pretty cool moc, and a great way to speed up the process of moving, something I have done far too many times to care to ever do it again. After reading the category, I can see something was lost in translation. Oh, and here(North America) an "office drone" is some one who works in the same cubicle every day doing, whatever it is he does, like a robot, but is just some sap with a crummy job.
I can't help being non-north american.

The dainty way in which he picks up the house is priceless! With as many times as I've had to help various family members move (not to mention friends), I would kill for one of these! Good luck with the other judges.~H

Grande Yuri, questa creazione ha un non sň che di magico, tra il gotico e il cartone animato. I miei complimenti, il mostro č venuto molto bene, anche se a me i Bionicle e i loro pezzi non piacciono. Gli elicotteri, amico mio sono a dir poco geniali, come del resto anche l'ambientazione.Complimenti, veramente una bella creazione. In bocca al lupo con i giudici!!!

LOL! This is hilarious! And the little details in the posing, the tongue, and the one foot in the water makes it epic! It's the details that you don't normally see together with bionicle parts. Wonderful! Hope you have better luck with the other judges.

Quoting Chris Phipson Yuri, this is a SWEET build! I thought it was hilarious too! Anyone who's ever moved will completely understand. All that being said, I think Jason hit the category description a bit better. We were looking for "what bores you" and as much as moving would bore a giant mechanical ape, we were looking for "non sci-fi stuff" here. The other judges may see it differently so good luck! ~ Chris.
Wait what? I read the category carefully and I found no hint of "non sci-fi". In fact, it was clearly the opposite.
Quoting Chris Phipson Pick something from the mundane normalcy of life and give us your take on it. Office drones in a cubicle?
I don't know where you come from, but here drones are sci-fi (or at least sci, if emplyed in a common fashion) stuff. You also said to give "our take" on it, requesting a personal point of view to people who you know build things
Quoting Chris Phipson out of this world, fantasy, sci fi, fun stuff and so on.
So where does your "no sci-fi" take come from? It really sounded like you wanted to see some fantastic element thrown into a mundane situation, specifically something boring/bothersome/annoying. So I'm asking if your vote was based on the theme interpretation.
