About this creation
Here is my first (and perhaps last) entry for Flexible Fig Contest 2. Grandpa scores a quality scream and a spilled glass of water from his teenage grandson. Corners always seem to do the trick...

I had fun designing the character stances, namely the different leg techniques (the arms I've seen done plenty of times before, can't take credit for those). Also, my apologies for the soft photos, sadly I'm too lazy to retake them. *facepalm*











BOO!!!

[EDIT 10/26/12] In light of several requests, I've decided to upload a "how it's done" picture (found below) of the leg techniques.




Thanks for stopping by, and Soli Deo Gloria!

Quoting Bill Daniels. Would you like to join my 6x6 contest? I invited you. Please think about it! It would be awesome if you join!
Hi Bill. Unfortunately I don't have much time for additional Lego activities right now (I'm already swamped with a few other projects), but thanks very much for thinking of me! And I wish you the best of luck with running your contest!

Quoting Mark Murphy Well done Ian, Pose: 4.5/5 very good, but it is just a teeny bit overshadowed by the rest of the MOC, (In other words it is not as much emphasis on the pose as I would like) Build: Very simple but it needs to be that way, maybe you could have put something on the wall 2.5/3 Pictures: 2/2 Total: 9/10 Great job!
Thank you for the very decent score Mark, although I would like to point out: there is a picture on the wall! ;)

Very funny MOC. Grandpa's sneaking stance is perfect. I like the blue fire for water.

Quoting Sean & Steph Mayo Excellent vig! Everything from the slightly tilted picture frame to the way you got the grandpa to stand up, is brilliant.
I was wondering if anyone would notice the picture. :) Thanks Mayos!

Fantastic Ian. I love the feel you're able to achieve on your MOCs. The figs in this MOC, especially the scared one, are in such humorous, lifelike poses that the effect really had me doing a double take. A brilliant touch with the blue fire piece acting as thrown water. Perfect result. Well done.

amazing! But, the posability looks a little wierd. Also, I'm desperate for critieques, so can you check out my stuff, and comment on anything you want to. I'll comment on your stuff too, if you like.

I love the water effect. Photos are maybe a bit over-exposed or something. 1.5 out of 2 for photography. The build isn't the most detailed ever, but it is nice and clean. 3 out of 3 for the build. The poses and expressions of the figs work so well with your story I think that they deserve a perfect score. 5/5 for the figs and 9.5 out of 10 points total.

the fear of the young guy is perfect!! I did not think that kind of "attitude" was possible with minifigs... Great job!

Clever, clever, clever, Ian. The dynamic here is perfect and, close to Halloween, so is the theme. Brilliant.

Quoting Ian Spacek Gramps seems to have stepped on a knife...but you're not suppose to see that! ;) I may add a picture of how I did the leg techniques, if that's okay?
Now THAT is an excellent technique! yeah, that's fine to do...

Quoting The Timinater !
Quoting Ian Spacek Hehe, thanks Tim! The Grandpa's leg technique simply uses 4 black mini-fig hands: 1 to connect the two legs, 1 to attach the connected legs to the body, and 2 just to give his legs a more fleshed out appearance.
ok, i can see 3 of the hands... and what's the grey thing in the floor that appears to be holding him up, or helping balance?

Quoting The Timinater ! what an entry! 2/2 for pics, 2.5/3 for build - I like how you used a thick base, so you could have the floor technique, and have a smooth base, yet still have minifigs standing up nicely! 4.5/5 for poses - I still can't work out that complex grandpa's leg technique! XD excellent MOC, a total of 9/10!

You must be one of the most creative persons around, I just can't believe how realistic this scene looks! The posing is pure brilliance, the water effect is simply fantastic and the scene itself is also nicely done so that it doesn't draw too much attention to itself. Truly great work!
