The Romans Stole My Homework!
About this creation
Here's my first entry for the 2012 MocAthalon. It's for the team "The Expendables" and built for the category of "The Dog Ate my Homework - Heard that one a million times. But, show us YOUR best reason for not having it to hand in. Did it get caught in the garage door opener? Did you get attacked by a bus full of angry penguins? What's your excuse, mister?"




So, Jeremy, do you have your essay?



I had finished it, but I lost it on the way to school.



What's your excuse this time? I hope the flying monkey tacos didn't take it again...



Don't worry, this time I'm telling the truth. It all started as I was skateboarding to school...



I rolled along the sidewalk, essay in hand.



I wasn't really paying attention to my surroundings; it was just a normal day.



My lack of attentiveness cost me as I flipped over an unnoticed object and crashed to the ground.



I got up and examined what I'd hit, it appeared to be a strange archaic lamp of some sort. As I picked it up it began to smoke.



After a moment a strange blue being popped out of the lamp. I dropped it in surprise and hastily stepped back.
"Who are you?" I stammered



"I am an all powerful Genie. I may grant you one wish," the being said.



In shock, I said the first thing that came to mind, "Take me to ancient Rome Genie!" My essay was on Rome, after all. "Then take me back here," I quickly added.




*POOF*




Then in a nanosecond we appeared in Rome. Unfortunately, it was the middle of a gladiatorial arena.



"Er... kid, we might want to run..."



Romans: "Close the gate! Close the gate!"



Romans: "Open the gate! Open the gate!"



Gladiator: "What's this?"



Sadly, I dropped my homework escaping. "Genie, my homework's still out there!"



Genie: "Sorry kid, I have to take you home now." And then I reappeared in modern times.



"And that's why I'm not handing in 'The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire' today."



"Ha, that was almost believable until the end! Maybe if you'd done your homework you'd have learned that the Roman Empire never fell, they managed to avert disaster thanks to a mysterious paper detailing their shortfalls. I expect your report tomorrow."



"What have I done?!?!"



The classroom. Note the doily made of a flower that is under the glass. Also, I included a heater beside the desk and cheese wallpaper.



The street. It's my personal favourite of the three builds in this MOC, and took the longest to make.



The gutter.



Bricks take up a lot of tiles, apparently...



A restaurant.



Another house, this time with a large garden. You can kind of see an old lady watering the flowers through the window. I represented the watering can with an oiling can, but you can't really tell in the photo.



The sewer can be seen in the sides of the MOC.



The interiors.



Either Mister Bones went spelunking or there's one unlucky guy down there.



A room, if you hadn't guessed.



The desk.



A cabinet with mirror doors.



Someone drying their hair. You have to admit, that technique's worth five points alone, right?



The first level has a couch, table, and cat. (Sorry about how over-exposed the cat is, apparently white objects don't show up too well on brown backgrounds.)



The restaurant.



A couple seem none too pleased about receiving a whole uncleaned fish.



I really hope Mr. Phipson hasn't snuck into another MOC here... At least he brought a cool technique with Asajj Ventress's skirt for a poncho.



One of the flower gardens.



The old lady's house with dinner on the table. (She's not much into healthy food.)



The old lady's attic. Like any self-respecting crazy old lady all her money is composed of gold coins and hoarded in crates.



"If ye're just gonna insult me ye can get out!"



A smart car. Pretty much the same design as LEGO's, just with a different colour scheme and some other minor changes.



A truck. (Based solely on my imagination, as is the next vehicle.)



The teacher's car, although you can't really see him in the photos.



The Roman treasure room with a statue of a famous gladiator in the middle.



A wall.



The other wall.



The arena.



And finally the arena without minifigs.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is really a great build. Although everything is really good, I will just comment on the living spaces and furniture, which really drew my attention. I loved the desk and wallpaper detailing, which was incredibly creative. This set was super fun to look at. Well done and good luck with your contest.

Enjoyed it from the first picture to the last! As I retired teacher I must admit I never heard that as an excuse for the loss of homework! BUT as a student I may have used it! After all when learning about the planets in 2nd grade I did raise my hand and proudly asked: "WHERE WAS KRYPTON?!"

Quoting Killer Quadrapeds The Undeniably Creative What a story! Great Vignettes(They kinda are vigs) And scenery!
Er... None of these builds are vignettes. If a MOC is larger than 16x16 and has more than one minifig or event then it's not a vig. Still, thanks for the comment!

Quoting Ian Spacek Ugh, hate it when that happens. And genies are such suckers for laughs too...hahaha! Clever idea! Have you ever seen the film "Big Fat Liar"? This reminds me of it slightly.
Thanks! I think I have seen the film a while ago, though my recollection's somewhat fuzzy.

Quoting Chris Phipson The build alone was worth the five points (awesome details!) but I just love how you threw a monkey wrench in the whole space/time continuum! (did I spell that right... who cares, it's a great moc!) 5 points! ~ Chris.

Quoting Blake Baer Wow. The builds were solid, but I am blown away by the effort you put into this. The story, individual scenes and builds are all very well done. This will probably be the only case that I will do this, but I am giving you credit for the story. Again, the amount of effort that you put in obviously shows. Score: scraping up a 5

Quoting Quad ????? you could maybe cut down on some of the pictures, like the ones that you already have a good view of during the story. :)
Yeah, it is kind of long. Still, I doubt it will negatively impact the judging, and better safe than sorry. I'll try to cut back on unnecessary pictures in my next entry though!
