About this creation
Team: MAD
For the 2013 Mocathalon category 1. Alternate Mode of Transport.
We have all seen trains, bikes, cars, boats and planes! What mode of transport haven't we seen? Does it use cosmic power? Does it relocate you along radio waves? Show us your idea for a mode of transport. It must include a minifig but the build can be set in any time period.




Howdy!



Good Afternoon!



Mr. Barnacle is still not impressed by the seeming comfort and gliding feel of the new fangled Snail Chairs. It may seem ridiculous that a snail is allowed on the road, but these giant versions can reach speeds up to and exceeding 5 miles per hour. This is a major improvement on the Couch Slug prototype.



Dan and Marie just love their Lounge Gastropods and recommend the experience of owning one of these beauties to anyone.



Just keep a close eye on your normal sized pets.




Inspiration for Snail Chairs stemmed from the fact that I came up with a great snail design and had to fit it into a category somewhere. Getting the shell to shape up was very difficult but I am proud to put my name at the end of these lovelies. Go Team MAD!

Dude! The use of elephant legs is phenomenal, and I'm amazed by how much mileage you get from those rounds. (No pun intended.) Awesome work!

The shells are the minor letdown with this build, I feel the use of some other pieces could have given them a more 'shell-like' look. The PU with those elephants is fantastic, still just shy of a five. 4 points. ~Thoy

Between the build and the whole concept behind it AND the NPU... each on their own would have earned four points. Put them all together however and... 5 points! ~ Chris.

I know they're snails. I see the snails. But I just keep seeing elephants on their backs...either way, its gross! You got a good shiver out of me, with a cool technique, so...4 points to you!

Quoting Brick Savage Great shaping on these snails, love the use of the elephant legs. Don't forget to add this to the MOCAthalon.
Oh yeah. That is an important step isn't it? Thanks mate.

I agree with Paul. If it's got round plates of THAT number, it's from you! Great work, one of my favorite entries. :D
