Moc Olympics Round 2 - Category : Build A Better Mousetrap.
About this creation

Opponent : The excellent JS Can.

2012 MocOlympics

So, I've been having trouble with this little fella. Cute, ain't he ? Still, I don't want him in the house, urinating everywhere he goes - they do that you know, it's not nice...

He's got to go, but I don't want to kill him. What to do ?



Computer's on the fritz again... maybe there's a mouse problem where they have the MOCpages servers....



Time to deploy the Technic MouseMaster 3000.



Mmmmm cheese.... just pull on it slightly and...



Gotcha!



Trapped! At least he's got some cheese to eat while I take him outside to be released...



Simply by turning the gear and opening the trap door.



Once I've taken him to the countryside where he can, er... frolic ?



There. We're both happy now. Thanks to the Technic MouseMaster 3000.



This was fun to build, here's all the parts of the moc.

Hilarious and fantastic!! Sorry Nick, but in our house, mouse caught = mouse eaten. Not by us, of course... (Yes, we french people are eating frogs and snails ;) but mice are kind of different!!). Anyway, your idea for the trick is a so unique piece!! Go, go, go!!!

Quoting Vibor Cavor To tell you the truth, I am not much of a fan of that mouse. I may be the only one here but I always speak my mind. I hope you don't mind. I think you could do a better one. It's kind of too blocky, the body is too long etc. As for everything else - it's great! That socket, the hole, the everything, really nice work... inspiring as well!
Thanks Vibor - I like and appreciate honest criticism; that mouse is the first animal I've made and I can probably do better. Thanks for stopping by.

This really reminded me of the board game 'Mouse Trap'. But actually its a pretty cool contraption which even saves the lives of those pests we so often don't consider. Great work here! ~Thoy

Wow, Nick, I can't believe what I'm seeing...: Are those really studless Technic beams? ;-)) The mousetrap is really clever and the mouse looks cool too! :-)) Good luck with the judges, you did a great job here! :-))

I would have loved to see a Tom & Jerry like guillotine with loads of bloodspatter, but hey, this works out fine too. Mice deserve to live as well. Good one, man and good luck with your judges!

Love this Nick! It's like a MOCfest! My favourite part is the corner of the room with the hole in the wall and the plug/socket (that is genius) it looks shockingly real. This is going to be hard to beat. The best of luck to you although I think this will take some beating. I'm not going to be able to make it to steam, instead I have to wash the Ferrari 550 that has just arrived ;-) I hope to see you soon, the client is very impressed with the GTO and I hope we will get more work from it ;-) Speak soon my friend!

Haha, a three-pin plug socket, splendidly done (including the screw-heads!) but the technic Mousemaster is genius! I knew you would throw functionality into this challenge Nick and I'm not wrong. Great job, well done and good luck. Come on MOCOlympic team GB!

I knew I was going to like your take on this category, nice work! The technic is as clever as ever, but the room corner you built really adds something - especially the floorboards, they've come out really well.

Great job and good luck! I don't wanna be ''standing-on-one-side-ish'', but if I where judge you should win only because of the brilliant mouse. But I haven't seen JS's entry, I also wish him good luck. :-)
