Post crash post. Originally built for the 2010 MOC Olympics, but the 2011 crash wiped all the pics away.
About this creation
So here it's back again! This was a legendary duel with Mister Dave Kaleta in Round 6 of the 2010 MOC Olympics. Our theme was anatomy. His magnificent dissection of a frog won.
Here's my take on the theme.
The anatomic model of my head has a few features as well. For example, the eye can be removed to reveal a minifig operating the eye. Notice the tools he's using.
The same goes for the ear. Please pay extra attention to the contents of the ear.
Both the eye and earcase feature a hole where messages can be posted to the brain.
The inside of the mouth with teeth, tongue and again a message box to send the senses of taste and flavour to the brain.
The tickle in the throat.
I choose to make the right side of the head because it's my handsome side, and it has my favourite part of the brain ;) (According to my wife I'm only using half of it, and I don't know what the other half is for, so go figure...) Anyway, here's a resume for the unknowing:
left side of the brain: controls the right side of the body, math, speech, logic, facts, deduction, analyses, practical, order, wordes of a song, linear, details.
but oh, the right side of the brain: controls the left side of the body, creativity, art, visualisation, intuition, idea's, imagination, holistic, melody of a song, dimensional, do more things at once.
The wonders of an anatomoc model: a deconstructable skull.
Wow... utterly amazing. I was just checking out this post and lamenting over the crashed photos the other day! Lucky me, now I get to see this in all it's glory, from the fantastic sculpting to the brilliant concept itself. I wasn't on MOCpages for the judging, but man, it must have been close.
This is just brilliant! Very clever creation sir. For the sake of your sanity (and time), I won't list everything I like about this creation. But to name a few things: I'm particularly impressed with the eye and ear drum sections. The use of the grille tiles for hair texture/shading is extremely innovative as well. Look forward to seeing more of this type of thing!
I've been hoping that I'd be able to see photos of this again someday, great that you've reposted. This is a phenomenal creation with dozens of clever details, and the concept is brilliant. Amazing work, I'm guessing that you must have given Dave a run for his money.
As I'm new to MOCpages, I've never seen this before. It's absolutely brilliant! I love the humour and creativity of the MOC, though I worry that the men in your eyes & ears might get lonely. The guy falling down your throat with a sword must have hurt too. The control room in your brain is very well done and I like the trans bricks showing your spinal cord. I wonder if I have a minifig in my right ear: it would explain why I'm a bit deaf on that side.
