MocOlympics Round 2 - Roger Brickjet vs Shannon Ocean
For the 2011 MocOlympics, Yellow Bracket, Round 2, in the category: Sherwood Forest - What happens in the forest, stays in the forest... What did Robin and his band of merry men get up to in between adventures?
About this creation
My merry opponent: Shannon Ocean

The 2011 MocOlympics home page.

There must be something exciting going on...what are they looking at?

Robin shouts from above: "Hey, if I get to the top now, I'll break my record again!"

Yes, when he's out stealing from the rich and giving to the poor we all know him as "The Prince of Thieves"...but on the weekends he is also, the undisputed, "KING OF KONG"!!


Yes, it's a one-liner this time, I had a lot more planned but the bottom of the tree trunk took me ages to feel satisfied with.

Just a few closeups (of course I forgot the tree trunk!):









Phew, that was a close call, I was going to finish this yesterday but fell asleep while reading to my son.

Once again I went back to the first idea I got. If anyone doesn't know there's a movie/documentary(-ish) called "King of Kong" where two people play Donkey Kong to see who gets the highest score.

This was my first forest scene, I had to borrow two old forestmen from my son and order the silly, pointy hats from bricklink. I think I will keep the tree and make the top part better. The base is octagonal and fell apart a lot until I found a way to secure it :)

This is also the largest MOC I've made so far and I didn't realize it would be so hard to take clean pictures of it. I had to use part of my sons play table and move a lot of his lego out of the way but it still was very crowded :)


Thanks for looking!

Quoting Flare . Great scene! You should've added a gal at the top, though ;)
Thank you! You're right, I think I thought it was too crowded or something :)

Quoting George G. Great entry buddy! Going by that positions sheet on Flikr, it looks like I'll be up against you in the next round :D good luck and let the better builder win!
Yes, checked that also :) Good luck to you too! And if the better builder always won you'd be up against Shannon Ocean, so I have to hope cheap laughs will get me to round 4 ;)

OMG! I can not believe it! Thank you everyone for your supportive comments! And thank you, judges! Also a special thank you to Mr Ocean, it feels a little like a Robin Hood story :) The judges robbing the better builder and giving the round 3 spot to a player who would have been totally run over in any other category :)

Hahaha, genius! Had a proper laugh when I saw that first full picture. I can sympathise with suddenly photographing larger items AND also 'borrowing' bits of my son's collection, including Duplo! I found a light-tent helped with the photography, as did grabbing my wife's (better) camera. Great job, and good luck as you advance.

That was hilarious! It was REALLY a tough call on this one but we have to choose one right? You got my vote! Welcome to round 3! ~ Chris.

Brilliant idea! Splendid! It looks so much like the game, you just check it instantly without words. And it fits the theme pretty good. It´s worthy to fit the theme, isn´t it?

Haha! I laughed out loud when I read that "King of Kong"! This is an awesome entry mate-if I were a judge you'd get my vote!

As I already wrote in my comment for Shannon Ocean, this wasn't an easy decision. Both of the ideas are hilarious and creative. The efford you'd put into the trunk shows. In addition to that I like the forced perspective with the little trees in the background and the atmosphere in the first pic. Stealing parts from your son pays off, Roger: You got my vote.

Ooh, I've got a funny little anecdote too :) My wife came in as I was finishing the tree and instantly she asked "What's that supposed to be? An Ent?" :)
