Post-Apoc Gas Station
So I've been workin' on this for the last two weeks... My friend (the only TFOL I personally know :P) and I were talking about building some zombie/apoc stuff, and then I had one of those I-can't-sleep-because-I-have-too-many-awesome-ideas-floaing-in-the-brain episodes, and then this was the final result! Hope you like it!
About this creation
I wanted to build a gas station that's all the rage with my friends (dirt-cheap fountain drinks!), and I decided to feature a bunch of my non-Lego buddies in it to amuse and inspire them... Guess I still harbor a little hope for them in their miserable dark-ages... :) Anyway, I doubt anybody here would really care about the inside humor in this, but I still thought this would worth posting, since this is one of my-- if not THE-- largest MOC I've ever built.

Here we go...





So this is essentially the premise: Me and my TFOL buddy, Josh (center guy who's rockin' the Napoleon look) have taken charge during the zombie apocalypse and started a new regime to protect all of the survivors; We have set up our base at a run-down gas station, and are currently trying to hold out against the zombie horde until the US Military shows up to rescue us... Here Josh leads a charge against an oncoming undead.















This guy is presumably the first of many who will attempt to sack our fort.










A paparazzi. We all know one of 'em.





So one of my friends drives an old Buick Park Avenue that he's oh-so proud of, and we all like to give him grief about it... So I got the idea to bash his ride a little here: Here we see him trying to fix his Buick, which-- during his free time-- he has converted into a HumVee-esque vehicle which he intends to fight the zombies with. I call it... the "Bui-Vee"!















Computer-loving coffee addict. Another friend we all have.















The Department of Entertainment.





That's Jeremiah. A friend you probably don't have... :P





So while Josh is in charge of the garrison, I am responsible for managing our inventory, party planning, and other things like that. Here I am, performing my... administrative duties.





From left to right: Drink machine, hot dog roaster doo-hickey thing, and the beverage freezer.





A barricade to keep any zombies from using the side door.





From here on out, just a few bonus shots that showcase some of my favorite parts of the build.





The damaged canopy.





Gas pumps, complete with the hose/nozzle things!





I'm really happy with how I did the hoses: I used a rope piece like the one on the left, looped it under the road, and then ran each end through a pump. :D





The sign.





The little computer cranny.





Hot dog roaster!





Drink Machine.





The guitar amps.





And finally... a Bui-Vee encore. This might be my favorite part of the MOC; one of the funnest things I've ever built.










Attack!





Group shot!



Thanks so much for viewing! Be sure to stick around; the premeire of my series, the Shroud Chronicles, should be comin' soon!

Quoting Michael Rutherford The amps and the inventory in the refrigerator were both really clever. It's the abundance of small details like that which often carry this sort of dio from "Good" to "Totally cool". This dio would go over big if you ever took it to a Lego fest! You should expand the setting to include the bank or post office next door. Attack!
Thanks Michael, that really means a lot! Thanks for the great ideas too! :D

Quoting David Roberts A wonderful build, full of interesting details and creative parts usage. It's a real shame that nobody has found time to use the ping-pong table whilst fending off the hoardes of undead...
Thanks for the kind words! Maybe they can get some of the zombies to play with them! :)

Quoting lone wolf Yes, the Quick Trip survives!!! I would be happy to defend it with you in my quad tank. Good humor, cool build, amazing idea.
Yay! A fellow QT-er! Haha, I'm sure we could put that tank to good use. ;) Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Tim C Fantastic. I love the humor angle here. I will say, that the friend I don't have really gave me a chuckle. Thanks for that; with my odd weekend off coming to an end, a good chuckle was welcome. The Buick looks great, and I love the sign. All the gas station essentials are very accurate. I like your attention to detail in throwing a couple cartons of milk in the cooler. Well done, Andre.
Haha, good eye for the milk cartons! And I'll be sure to let Jeremiah know that he's famous... ;) Thank you so much for dropping by!

Quoting Prehistoric Echoes I love it. Gives me another addition to my zombie plan XD. Very creative though, and actually quite intuitive. I like the Buick-vee thing. Reminds me of the modified vehicle in Terminator that looks like a civilian car made up to be a military transport. Anyway, great MOC. A or A+ rating.
Thanks man! Yeah, if there ever is a zombie outbreak, we can all just run off to some gas station and bring our LEGO collections with us... :P Appreciate your kind words!
