About this creation
An entry for Team ANZAC in the 2012 MocAthalon

Catagory: Adventure Time!


So, yes. First things first, i did go a bit overboard on this catagory... somehow when i read "An adventurous person in an exciting scene", my mind heard "A whole town full of adventurous people in a variety of exciting scenes!!1!" Yup. A big sorry to my teamates, i spent waaay too long on this. It has been interesting btw, seeing how quickly ppl manage to crank out amazing entries in this comp; i thought i built at a decent clip but now i know i am a slowpoke compared to many of you!

Anyway, enough of that, there's a build to be looking at...

So, for this build i had in mind a kind of "adventurers retreat", where achaeologists could rub shoulders with jewel thieves and mavericks and spies etc. Never a dull moment in this place. I tried to pack as many adventure movie tropes and references in there as i could think of... see how many you can spot! ;)















The bike chase was fun to set up and pretty much the first adventure scene i thought of - harking back to all those Bond films of my youth! ;)



And of course we need a bold jewel thief to be making a quick rooftop escape somewhere! Notice how she's set a tripwire to confound her pursuers. :) One for the heist films.



I had to get a Mummy/Indiana Jones reference in there somewhere. :) These two intrepid souls have robbed a sarcophigus of a sacred dagger - and now the tomb gaurdians have come after them for some good 'ol fashioned mummy justice!



Here you can see an explorer setting out for the desert with a camel and her trusty bodygaurd/guide. However, a mysterious looking character in the laneway seems very interested in the party... :o



Down at the docks you can see an hardy soul fending off a pack of zombie pirates who are trying to press-gang him...



Workers loading barrels into a warehouse; even in the most exciting place on earth where there is never a dull moment, the work still has to get done!



Dr. Livingstone i presume?



Now who could this celebrity adventurer be i wonder...? ;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That's all folks, sadly it's over and out from me for the 2012 MocA's now. Best of luck to the rest of my team (Go the ANZACS!) and to everyone else in the comp. Thanks too to all the judges for their sterling work. I've had a heap of fun and hopefully i'll be better prepared next year! :)

Due to the sheer volume of entries during MOCA I tend to have missed things, so it's great to go back and find a gem like this! Really ambitious build for a limited duration contest. I love the variety of colours and textures used throughout, without it ever looking too much or too busy. Something new to see each time. Great job and deserving of the flawless score.

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments, sorry i'm so late in responding but i've been crazy-busy these last couple of months. My thanks also go out to the MocAthalon judges for all their hard work during the comp, and for my ANZAC teammates for covering for my paltry 3 entries. Cheers! :)

I'm back, and amazed to see this is your second most popular MOC. If this had been posted anytime out of the Mocathalon it would be a 100+ rated MOC - and our team would be down a tonne of points haha. It would be nice to see this get on 'Across Mocpages'.

The curves, textures, and angles on this MOC are a stunning complement to the multiple story lines you've woven through the streets and rooftops. Well done!

Ah, so did you just do the three? Three amazing entries, that totally deserve to get 10s. I'm going to be lucky to get my 4th one done tomorrow, and only two of them will be substantial, really. It does take a lot of time to do it right, doesn't it? And in a competition like this, there isn't really a lot of time. I see why they call it a mocAthalon -- I'm tired! And kind of sick of the whole thing. Anyway, I really love your developing style -- it's just so visually appealing... the colors, the details, the patterns. I love it all. ;-)

I just showed this build to Mel, she said "no wonder your getting fours, your always getting compared against that!"... :'( Honestly I am trying haha, 12 hours later and this still looks epic.

Well Gabe you did it, made me regret moving in the middle of the month. I really wish I had the time to put a bit more detail into my builds, instead i'm having to rely on lighting effects and good photo angles to make my builds 'POP'. This is gorgeous, the light blue wall is beautifully textured. Any judge would be deemed cookoo if they didn't give this a 5 :) Can you do one more in 24 hours? I'm going to push for 2 more builds between now and finish time. ~Thoy

Great work Gabe! The build itself is fantastic, but all of the action and references make this really stand out. I can't help but start singing everytime I see a build for this category...."It's adventure time, C'mon grab your friends, we"ll go to very distant lands. With Jake the dog and Finn the Hu-man, the fun will never end, it's adventure time!"

Absolutely stunning! The level of detail is incredible. One day, maybe in the next century, I'll have the level of skill to build a diorama like this... Go team ANZAC!
