M.O. Round 2, Connor Simpson vs. Jens Ådne Rydland: Collectible Minifigure Mecha
About this creation
Built for the round two category Collectible Minifigure Mecha in the 2011 MOColympics

My esteemed and worthy opponent, Jens Ådne Rydland

And now, please allow me to present THE PUNK ROCKER MECH!

First off, the usual over all shots:








Leg close up:


Face close up:


The face flaps open to reveal the cockpit, containing another punk:


The mech is controlled by an electric guitar interface, which allows the pilot to operate the mech by playing particular chords and rhythms as chosen by the pilot. Additionally, all sound made by the guitar is amplified and then blasted from a speaker inside the mech's mouth.


No figs:


A couple shots of the skull without the legs:







Notes: So, when I began this competition, I was thinking, oh, I should do okay as long as I don't have to build anything like a mech. And then BOOM! I end up with a mech category. This was my first mech, and I it took me a while to come up with an idea that I liked, but in the end everything worked out, and I actually rather like the final result, although I can only hope that the judges do as well.

Before I finish up here, I'd like to thank my opponent for being here to compete with me and wish him the best of luck in this round. May the best man win. Also, a big thank you to the judges for putting in their time and effort for this competition, I'm very grateful.

DUDE! This is both funny and awesome! I absolutely love the mohawk technique. I think it just needs some ear ring cannons on the sides of the head to make it that much more kicka--!

Thought I commented on this already, oh well. Great work, really creative build! The head is really cool, and I especially like the mouth! I also like the feet, the whole thing looks kind of like a frog!

Great job on the shaping, and I love the idea of a guitar interface. Yep, this contest will throw up a category you don't build/ haven't built/ don't want to build, but you've risen to the challenge well. Unlucky on not advancing.

It's been an honour competing against you in this round, I think our task was both fun and challenging, and I greatly enjoyed it. Really liked your skull design, and the punk hair and musical control of the mecha was pure gold :-D Some better pose-ability and a guitar(!) for the mecha and you'd easily have beaten me. :-)

Quoting Chris Phipson GREAT entry Connor! I think though your opponent's mech's flexibility is what cost you here. Both great entries but my vote went with Jens. Thanks for posting an awesome entry! Ok, hit the showers! ~Chris.
Thanks for the constructive criticism, I'll remember it for next year. It's been great participating and I thank you for putting this on.

A neat build! I love the afro and the skull design but it could have had arms and a guitar,also why is the internal minifig not the punk? Still its great but your opposition's mech was just that little bit better due to exploiting who the minifig was and why it was a mech. Will you please check out my MIT entry? http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/289747

You did a really nice job here, especially for a first-timer. The shaping of the skull is wonderful and I love the green Mohawk you gave it. The MegaBlocks piece in question is the black 2x4 plate you used for the nose area; you can almost read it but the smooth studs that lack the LEGO logo is the giveaway... =P It really doesn't matter, it's just an opportunity for some lighthearted ball-bustin'! Better luck next time, Conner.~H

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Connor, I'm sorry - though you did a very good job, my vote goes to your opponent. Building mechs, when you're not used to it, is is a problem I'm well aware of. In my opinion, your idea was good, but I'm missing a bit more flexibility and poseability.
Okay, thanks for letting me know. Congratulations on the vote, Adne!

I got the mech catagory as well in the MIT. I think you picked a clever choice in a collectible minfig. Not a bad mech for your first one either! I too just built my first one! Good luck!

Wow this is great! It's nice to see somebody else who got the same category (I got it in the MIT)! I really like how you made the mech a skull. It really makes it look very interesting. Very good job! Best of luck in the MOs :)
