About this creation
Original Title (for contest): MIT Round 2. Ian vs Heath

The required links:
MIT Homepage
My worthy opponent Heath Flor

Echo Bracket Category/Quote: "Show me the money!" This is my entry for Round2 of the MIT. I went with the classic wealthy mobster theme (some inspiration from "Angels with filthy souls" i.e. the gangster show from Home Alone). I ran out of good brown bricks half way through the building process, so this creation was quite a scramble for pieces! I hope you enjoy what you see nonetheless!




"Show me the money!"





The boss (and of course my armchair design had to make a reappearance sometime).



Tool of persuasion a.k.a Tommy gun (works every time).



This poor fellow was late in "gathering" the bosses "dough" (that was a mistake).



Hands up!



Because the boss, of course, has a like-minded girlfriend...



...or maybe she's an inside agent for a secret law enforcement agency (like in Hitchcock films), but judging by that gun and expression, I doubt it!



Overhead shot.



The carpet: this was a fun technique to play with.



Do you prefer yours "on the rocks"?



Cigar and drinks.



As much as I'd like to, I can't take full credit for the brilliance of the fireplace. I stole the basic design from Paul Vermeesch...I'm assuming he'll forgive me, yes?



Mantel decor (above) and suit of armor (below).



Thanks for stopping by and Soli Deo Gloria!

Thank you fellows! This was sitting in the 190s for so long that 200 is a very gratifying milestone to finally reach! I'm much obliged to all of you! Thanks for taking of your time to share your thoughts!
Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist ...so I'll just have to content myself with 203.
Hey! As the saying goes, third times a charm! Thanks for the kind words LCV! Considering how many brilliant insults our friendship revolves around (well, mine are brilliant anyway...), this comment is most gratifying. ;)

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I can only think of 21 synonyms for refuse. Fortunately, that has no bearing on this build. ;) Great work Ian, congratulations on a well-deserved 200 likes! Was hoping to snipe the 200th, but was unfortunately occupied last night, so I'll just have to content myself with 203. This is such an elegant vig(big?)nette, you really nailed the composition with the multiple levels and rich colour scheme. Top-notch work my friend, this may be your first 200 but I doubt it'll be your last.

Thanks for the comment Riccardo! There are a couple other friends I need to connect with first, but if they are not interested then I'd be happy to join your team. I'll try and come up with a few ideas for other TFOL. Are the teams required to have both adults and teens in them?

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Hey Ian, sorry you didn't make it into the next round. It was a very honorable battle, and I'm thankful for the challenge you posed. As for posting early messing up your chances, let me just clarify the ONLY thing I rethought about my build after you posted was my tile floor. I don't want you to think I went back and changed my entire build.....that didn't happen at all. Don't feel too bad either way, as my first MOC O I posted about as early as you did and got stomped. My build was nowhere near your caliber either. You have amazing potential, so don't let the experience hinder you. I'm looking forward to seeing more excellent builds from you in the future!
Thanks Heath! I confess I was kind of under THAT impression, so thanks for clarifying. For some reason I thought you'd completely sized up your entry after seeing mine. Your couch design for instance--in my eyes--looked similar to the techniques and coloring that I used for my armchair, probably just coincidence. That was completely me being presumptuous. My bad. Anyway, congratulations on making it to Round3 and good luck in the future competition! You were a great opponent for me, and I learned a lot in the process. MIT helped me turn out some of my stronger builds, so all that to say, thanks again for a good round!

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J The competition just got tougher and everybody appreciates when builders create memorable MOCs. Both your entries are exceptional and neck-and-neck. The popularity of Ian's build confirms the MOC's superior quality. The trouble though of posting early is that the opponent gets a better chance to size up his competition. IMO, that is what just happened here. There is pressure for Heath to top Ian's and I believe he delivered just enough to sway the advantage. The size of the MOC did not matter, but I thought the action ultimately decided the vote. This was a tough call. My vote goes to your opponent.
With a builder as talented as Heath, I knew from the beginning that once he saw mine, he'd turn out a masterpiece (which he did). But thanks anyways. I'm always grateful for a comment!

So incredibly smooth. The faces are perfect as well as the entire vignette. I really like the suit armor but it's sad I don't see the classic violin case.

Ha! Ha! Sorry, Max is just a really good friend of mine, and I consider him a better builder then myself.

Quoting Mister Bones Ian, I am impressed. This looks great, all of the detail and different techniques are sure to aid you in your battle against Heath. I am not one of your judges, but I would not nit pick the chair design, you are bound to use some of the same styles of build you have used in the past. Best of luck!
-sigh of relief- Thanks man!

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Excellent job Ian! I especially like the whisky decanter. Very clever use of the cigar as well. I will try to get mine posted ASAP.
Thanks for the comment Heath! But just the way you phrased that makes me nervous (hehe). I guessed you might say something about the decanter...

Quoting E.K.O . Looks great! One of the best entries so far in the MIT. The re-use of the chair may get you disqualified though, the rules says that no old builds are allowed.
Oh wow I never thought of that. I built this from scratch and just reused my design. I think it will be okay, it's just a small detail. And like I said I didn't have it pre-built, it was in pieces in my sorting bins when I started. Plus I changed a few pieces since Baker Street and Christmas Carol. The only place where I think it might be exactly the same is my buddy Icon (keeps fingers crossed).

Yes, this looks excellent! The overall detailing is great, the armour could probably be more classic though and too bad you don't have much more brown.

I agree with the comment below, you are definitely a master of the classic fire place scene. That slightly raised rug is sweet! And using those earling like pieces to make a pattern for it looks awesome too! Just a couple days ago a was fooling around with those same pieces and I figures out that same technique you used! Also I really like the whole mood of the moc. The small details really make it cool, such as the bottles on the table, the slightly raised rug, and the fireplace. Best of luck the judges!

Quoting Paul Romano "...but my Tommy gun don't!" Blam blam blam blam! Hehehe! Never saw the gangster show, but I have seen Home Alone. Personally, I think between you, Paul Vermeesch, and Christopher Baldacci, you guys could probably out-fireplace, out-classic-apartment, and out-photograph everyone on the Pages. Hope you do well in the contest; Heath is a worthy opponent for you:)
Max Pointner would definitely be included in that group too, but any way thanks a million for the comment! And I think the gangster show was created for the Home Alone movies, so if you've seen Home Alone, you've seen the shows!
