So, when I got the category I was like, 'Alright, this looks like fun.' then I had to look up who Roald Dahl was and what the quote was from, then I found 'Devoured by a Rhinoceros' is from the book: 'James and the Giant Peach'. I saw the movie about that a while ago so I was thankful I had an idea. :P Dahl also wrote 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and 'The Fantastic Mr. Fox.' Which I was familiar with.
But anyway, I just decided to make the scene that the quote was from, I think it turned out well. :)
So the story goes, James Henry Trotter lived a happy life with his parents in a cottage by the sea in South England. Then one day they were on a shopping trip in London when James' parents were 'Devoured by a Rhinoceros' that escaped from the zoo. He later went to go live with his crazy aunts.
By now I was laughing my head off. For obvious reasons.
I thought how this whole scene would look. XD A screaming kid, some zoo keepers taking the rhino away, maybe a Phippy mopping up the mess, well, maybe not Phippy... :P
Anyway, onto the MOC! Captions below photos.
Here's the whole scene.
Sorry for any blurry pictures.
Here's the zoo keepers trying to lure the beast.
"Okay on three, one...two...three! Heave!"
"Aaahh! Omigosh! It IS a Phippy!"
"Mop, mop, mush, squish, splash, mash, mop, mop..."
The lord and lady that donated the funds for the zoo. :P I made that up.
Da vig without da figs!
The minifigures and...minifigure parts.
Now for the Rhinoceros...uh, no, the other one...
Ah. Here he is. This is my favorite part. :)
It's perfect scale. :)
"Mop, Squish, Mop, Squash! Heeeelp!"
Thanks for lookin', good luck to my opponent.
Please rate and comment!
The rhino is truly well built, but my favorite aspect of this MOC is how it tells the story without the need for words; the blood placement, positioning of characters and facial expressions tell you everything you need to know. Conrats, you have my vote!~H
The Rhino is amazing! I can't help but think of the scene in the movie, Ace Ventura when nature calls, when he is in the robotic Rhino and gets too hot and comes out of the rear end naked. Hahaha! Anyways, great take on the theme and good luck!
