The Extra Pieces

2013 MOCAthalon

Black & White: Create a moc that uses two and only two different Lego colors.


It's better with the music, trust me.
















The globe opens up and reveals the word "Hope" suggesting there is still a chance for everyone to get along. The world is the only place we can call home for now, we might as well work together to make it a better place.

Continents



The squiggled mass of Europe



Asia and sub-continent India



Assuie World and Kiwiland



Africa



South America



North America



Antartica



And who could forget our friend Hawaii?

Commentary:
Three Dog Night's "Black & White" was always the inspiration for this build, and also I love the song so much. (70's music all the way.) I really wanted to take a very literal approach on the category, too. Although it said any two colors, the song helps the build work. I guess it could have been "The world is red, the world is blue ... The child is red, the child is blue..." but that would have just been weird. It was also worth the challenge to sort all of my black and white into respective parts. I mean, how else would I have learned I am low on 1x1 plates?

Thanks to Allan Bedford for writing The Unoffocial Lego Builder's Guide for the basic sphere design and also the 1:1 brick paper.

Thanks for viewing, and don't forget to rate and comment.

AUS is too small, Erope is a jumble, but africa and the Americas are fantastic! also, 'HOPE' was a great addition!

Nice! Great idea, and nicely done. I also think America is the clearest. That spinny-roundly-picture-thingy helps a lot too.

Quoting Legofreak2444 ~ Love that song. Nice work. ;)
Right on! 70's music is where it's at. ;)
Quoting Brick Tales Very cool. The South America and Africa come out the best, IMO, whereas Europe is the least clear, but amazing that you can get the detail of all of the continents at that scale. The opening feature is really cool.
Yeah, the closer we got towards the poles, things get a little warped. I'm a little partial to North America myself, but that may be because I live there.
Quoting El Barto ! The world is made of Oreo Cookie! Cool build!
That sounds amazing! Now to make the Moon out of cheese!

The "Hope" feature really puts this one above the line! I meant that as a complement. Also if we ever do a transformers contest in the contest group again, i'm doing a transforming trophy. -Brick boy
