2012 M.O. R1 - The Chicago Riots
They say that in times of war, economic uncertainty, and political turmoil that people pay more attention to choices made in government. I'm here to say that that is all true...........
About this creation
2012 MocOlympics Group homepage.

Category: Get Up, Stand Up

The line "Get up, stand up, stand up for your right" made me think of this build.

When I hear that, I think of an angry mob. When I think of a mob, I think of wars and citizens disagreeing with something. This is MY interpretation of the category.

TV Broadcast from a Chicago-area new channel.

Last night, a mob of angry protesters stormed a European Union safe house in uptown Chicago.

There was only a small squad of EU soldiers defending the safe house, but the US Military and Chicago Police Department were quick to arrive on the scene and disband the riots. Unfortunately for the European Union squad inside the safe house, angry protesters climbed the fence and attacked them.

14 have been arrested after climbing the fence and breaching the safe house. Authorities are looking into the issue and are trying to determine who was the cause of this riot. They think that the EU's presence in Chicago helped to escalate the high tension that the American citizens have on the European forces.

No leads have been found into who was behind the car bombing. Authorities suspect it may be DARKWATER trying to take advantage of the turmoil.

Eight civilians were injured and one EU soldier was put in the hospital during the attack. Tragically, a US Soldier was caught in the blast. Staff Sergeant Jonathan Roberts was caught in the blast and was killed. He was 31. The EU soldier is in critical condition, but is stable.

Same image as main photo. View on Flickr for highest resolution.



Overview of the entire dio. Keep in mind that these pictures were taken before the scene pictured above was made.



Close-up of the angry group of protesters.



North Building. This is sort-of the focal point of the moc, it's windows were made specifically for being lit up with a small flashlight.



Front of the building.





Roof and side detail.



Roof overview. I'm proud of this. :3



Side of the building.



Inside/interior of the North building. It was an afterthought, but brings the build together.



Front view of the street. This includes the North and West buildings, and the small alley in between them.



I unfortunately neglected to take a full-on view of the West building. Enough of it can be seen in other pictures that I don't think it matters....



Alley/side street close-up.



Manditory back shot of the alley, this spot was supposed to be useful for taking pictures of the build, but didn't work the way I wanted it to.

Now I'll talk less and just give you groups of pics.

Here are some pics of the protesters.







The EU military trying to hold the protesters at bay.







And a final pic of the angry mob.....

Now for some pics of the build, minifigs, etc.



Street overview.



EU Safe house barrier/fence.







Sidewalk detail. I love the parts usage of the Technic engines. :3



The Mini Cooper small car used in the build. This is a mod of the actual Lego set, I just switched out the windshields.



EU troops. From left to right: Shock Trooper, Sector Commander, Shock Trooper, Sniper, Shock Trooper with Riot Gear.



And finally the American forces (the tan guys) and the police officer.



And then there is our lovely mob. :3

The following pictures are alternative takes of the main scene pictured in the title photo.

Fourth Wall: I'd like to thanks a lot of people for helping me with this build. A big thanks goes out to Eric The Red on Flickr. He edited the main photo for me and gave me lots of constructive criticism, along with [B]rick Attack and a number of other people. This is yet another build for The Purge over on Flickr. A big shoutout goes to the admins and members of the group for helping me with this build.

This build is situated on a 32x32 baseplate. This moc utilizes BrickArms, custom accessories made by me using electrical tape, and of course, LEGO.

I hope this build is good enough to get me to R2!

Judges should judge, everyone else, comment, rate, and fave me! :D Constructive criticism and comments are appreciated.

KP OUT!

Quoting Zach Jones; Master of all Things Mars Point number 1: That is a fantastic build. Number 2: where do you get a LEGO .50 cal barret rifle and the rest of those guns? I need some!
As I said in the description, the guns used are BrickArms, a Lego-compatible company that makes realistic weapons. http://www.brickarms.com/
