MXSC-R2-Micro-Danger Room
The training centre for the X-men. For Mister Xenomurphyís Superhero contest. Category: Microscale.
About this creation
Located at 1407 Graymalkin Lane, Salem Center, Westchester County, New York, Charles Xavierís family home has been known for some time as Xavierís School for gifted youngsters. This institute of higher learning is also the secret headquarters and home for the mutant X-men.



Deep in sub-basement two of the mansion is the legendary danger room. Early, above ground versions of the room employed robots and mechanical technology to test the X-men in combat, tactics, acrobatic and evasion skills. On encountering the Alien Shiíar Race however, the danger room went through a radical re-design and relocation beneath the mansion to take advantage of their advanced technology.



Utilising solid holograms created by lasers and force-field generators built into the walls, the danger room is able to create any environment, obstacle or threat that is programmed in to really test the x-men to the limits of their capabilities.



BAMF! Nightcrawler Ďports in a flash of smoke and the whiff of brimstone.



Meanwhile Angel starts a series of obstacles designed to test his maneuverability.



To push up the threat level, Colossus is holding back a giant hydraulic press. Cyclops assists with his optic blasts.



Here, the Professor has set the room to recreate one of the X-menís deadly enemies, A Sentinel. Wolverine, Storm, Ice Man and Nightcrawler combine to take on the foe.





Meanwhile, Dr Hank McCoy, AKA the Beast, monitors the displays in the war room, ever alert to threats against mutantkind.





The professor in his wheelchair observes from the gallery along with Jean Grey in her Marvel Girl uniform.



Shiíar power tap. 6.8 Megawatt gravity potential model with geothermal back-up.







The world's cheeriest Sentinel



Yes, in the 80's Storm's hair was that big



War room



Snkkt!

Notes/ 4th Wall

Iíve taken my inspiration from my favourite versions of the X-men here, John Byrne and Chris Claremontís take on the team from the 1980ís. Itís pretty much the one I first saw in Secret Wars and also involved in some of my favourite X-storylines (Phoenix saga/ Hellfire Club, Days of Future Past).

So please, no one comment about name changes to the x-mansion, the danger room gaining sentience, whereís Gambit/ Rogue/ Bishop/ Forge/ Jubilee, etc. Itís old school.

Speaking of school, I realise the danger room is NOT the headquarters of the X-men, just part of it, but I wanted to do something in the same version of microscale as Xenoís Spiderman-micro which is the 1st prize for this contest and I donít have the bricks or time to do the whole mansion, hanger, basements, etc. I opted to do a recognisable part as a cut-away, and as Tyler Halliwell knows, itís loosely based around illustrations in the Ultimate book of the X-men.

If only doing part takes this outside the definition of the category, sorry, and Iíll take my DQ like a man. No whining. I enjoyed it anyway. Thanks to Xeno and his judges for giving up their time and in some cases, their bricks, to run this contest. Well done gents.

On a side note, there has been some unpleasant and ungrateful whining about judging in this contest, including one direct comment on one of my MOCs from someone (not a competitor) who suggested that it wasnít fair or balanced. The comment in question was deleted immediately by the poster so they donít come across like a snidy toe-rag, but I donít like the implication of corruption or nepotism. Nor do I like the implied suggestion that Iím not good enough to be in the final.

Letís make it clear. There were five judges and they were free to mark anyway they like. Iím here on merit, as are the rest of the Fantastic Four. You donít like it? Come right out and say it in the open or shut up. Rant over, I donít like responding but Iíve had a rough few weeks and need to vent.

Thanks for looking.

You did a wonderful job in making each hero recognizable even in this scale. Your score: 9 Pts.

I'll begin by saying that I consider we have Four Fantastic Winners in this contest. Every single one has scored a top mark in his/her own particular way. Whether it was ingenuity in using available parts, sensitivity in chromatic choices, cleverness in manipulating ideas or plain (and sometimes subtle) humor, they all managed to really impress through fantastic, skillful MOC's. That being said, please understand that my score will ONLY reflect the sad necessity of having a first and second place in our contest, as I'm determined not to leave Xenomurphy to face this decision all alone. ----- As for your MOC: I cannot even come close to express how clever the use of parts is here. The characters are simply brilliant, you have chosen the perfect bit to express the particular "feature" of each and every one of them and then you took the whole thing even further by adding so much dynamic action and detail in just a few bits! The space is wonderfully ranked on different levels and the use of grey makes the microfigs stand out. Eye candy all over! Congratulations, Fantastic One :)! Your score = 8

After seeing the minifig in the full MOC view, I knew right away it was a sentinel. Micro X-men! Lots of fine details both in the danger room and the war room. All the characters were captured wonderfully. Quite recognizable. 10 points.

I love the micro figures in this, especially Nightcrawler and Mr. X. I see you came up with the same technique as I did awhile back for giving micro figures arms. And you got a double take from me on Wolverine. :)

Oh, I thought that was Tina Turner from Thunderdome! =) Like Kelso pointed out, the way you captured each characters detail with no more then a few 1x1 plates is simply masterful. I really love this and will henceforth refer to it for inspiration if/when I ever brave the micro world. Bravo, my friend!~H

Good idea, making a micro scale sentinel!

Amazing stuff here, Stu! My favorite era, too. Great job on the characters, especially Ice Man. I forgot all about Storm's hair-nicely done! Good luck!

Nicely done, definitely not what I'd expect. The open studs on the walls are excellent touches, and I like the multi-room aspect. It's too bad that people can't respect other people's opinions, just because you don't agree with something doesn't mean it's wrong. Good luck in the competition, and congratulations on reaching round two.

Great work, Stu! Love the way you were able to capture the characters in such a clear way with little more than a single brick's height. Great design, as well. The war room has to be my favorite. Like Bats, I'm diggin' the parts usage there. Nicely done from every standpoint!

Your version of the danger room is exceedingly awesome. I don't know any way that it could possibly be improved. This is going to be one tough round. In reference to the ending comment, I just wish that people could grow up. That is all. Great work!

Wow! You took a big risk making a micro-scale creation...and I think you nailed it. Every detail is captured perfectly, especially the creative mini-figs. Anyone who says you don't belong here is dead-wrong...and I can say that with some authority, as you beat me in the tie-breaker. Just ignore the haters; they're just jealous of your skills :) Excellent job, Mr. Delahay!

Really great job here. I loved the figures. Storm's hair is probably my favorite. And don't let haters get you down, haters are going to hate and all you can do is stay above it. Good luck with the judges.

Oh this is soooo cuuute!!! Those little Xmen characters are adorable I love how much attention has been put into making them recognisable with great parts usages and colours. I especially love the wheelchair. The rooms are so well done they make me want to chuck my minifigs away and only make micro from now on!

FIRST: This creation is stunning and I can't describe my joy while exploring the photos and reading the text. ----- SECOND: No DQ. The rules clearly say: "For example Wayne Manor, the Batcave, Professor Xavierís School for gifted Youngsters etc." Since the Batcave is also a part of the whole Wayne Manor - or the other way round - building the Danger Room is absolutely covered by the rules. ----- THIRD: John Byrne rocks! ----- FOURTH: I'm sorry I haven't read the comment you are referring to. If anybody thinks there's anything wrong with this contest, I'd prefer if he comes directly to me and talks to me about his concerns like a reasonable grown up, instead of sneaking around (Xenomurphy@gmail.com). Maybe you should think about this: Why would I invest money, lots and lots of time and 4 judges and create a contest only to make sure that somebody special is getting the first prize when I could simply send that person the MOC without any further work or efford or contest? ----- And now back to the Danger Room for a second inning. YeeHa!

This is amazing! This is bringing back SO many memories of the x-men! From the micro scale figures (which are EXTREMELY accurate), to the Sentinel figure, to the control room, you have nailed it! I hope the best for you in the contest, and you better not get disqualified for this!

Stu, As a lad I had two trade paperbacks that formed by early comic book knowledge, The Dark Knight Returns and the Claremont penned Dark Phoenix Saga; I still have them both and they have VERY well worn pages. Your cutaway build brings those X-Men comics to life, particularly the way you've captured the essence of each member in such a small form. I love all the part usage, particularly the Ninjago spinner under Hank. From one fan to another, this is bloody brilliant! ~Dave Kaletta

This is so cool! It must have taken some serious thought to make such neat-looking mini-mutants! The building looks fantastic as well! Best of luck in the contest!
