About this creation





...



*PLAS!*



Eruei: Argh... Such an incredible power...



Lianyu: I told you, it's only that I wasn't ready last time.



Eruei: I really underestimate his power... With my actual level I won't be able to win...



Eruei: Don't tell me... I have to use that...



Lianyu: Oh? You still want more?
Eruei: You have put me against the ropes... I'll have to restore to my ultimate surprise!
Lianyu: Really? Then let's see what more do you have on that block you call 'head'!



Eruei: You asked for it.



Eruei: LET'S GO!! RESTRICTION: ZERO! EHARA: FULL POWER!!



Lianyu: Wh.. What is happening!?



Eruei: HA HA HA HA! BEHOLD THE BIGGEST SURPRISE OF YOUR LIVE!
Lianyu: ...



Lianyu: Well... Indeed I'm surprised...



Lianyu: But seriously... L.A., are you going to enter the Round 2 with this...?

Ahpolki Ihu suggested this theme for the MEGABLOCK and it works pretty fine! So thanks a lot! ;3



Anyways, you still have the chance of listen/watch a song about killing a stag beatle and go to the future as a result?! ;3







My entry for second round of the BioCup! Yes, I'm so desperate for working ideas that I used MY ONW KAHONI EHAeeeeeeeer, my LEGO container. The resulting MOC is the biggest and heaviest I have ever made, so the background isn't big enough in some pictures! Sorry about that!



Also, I'm proud to state that I have only used HF parts, round-tube axles, and some Technic structure bars or whatever are called (mainly because those were the only parts I had available. LOL!) Look at those feet! <3



I used tons of torsos on this builds. Maybe even more than in my Maokaoma MOC. Oh, those HF cores were for adding a bit more of blue, think they are like gears or something.



Leg structure. Surprisely, it still has a lot of poseability. Now, stability... is another issue...



Back of the legs. Dear, they look so skinny! The idea behind the Mech was to make it look like a great amount of junk and stuff come out from the Ehara to make the mech limbs. I'm not sure it really gives that feeling, but oh well...



While they're the most strong legs I have ever developed, and they use almost everyone of my HF bones, the box with all the things inside is still heavy for them. So stability is hard to achieve. With the box empty is easier, though.



This picture is to show that the MOC actually stand, without stand on the wall or something.



The MOC structure without the box. The design I used is trapped inside the lower part of the box, so it's keeped hard enough to build around.



Those HF parts here will be used later.



Look! Bow tie! As you can see for the design, it can be rotated, so it works like a powerful fan to blow up the opponents! 8D



Lianyu: Bah! Whatever! All in all, you only have a giant box with legs! What are you going to do with it? Hide in and run?



*crck crkc*

Lianyu: Oh! Hey, hello Mr.Cannon...



Lianyu: Is that all you have? I've fought with worse things!



*Swing!*

Lianyu: YEEEEEEEEPA!!



Lianyu: Glup... It's sharp...



Lianyu: Anyways, all of these won't be useful! You won't pass this round...!



Lianyu: ...BECAUSE YOU'RE USING AN INVALID PART FOR THE BUILD!!



*TCHLAC!*

Lianyu: Ouch!



*POW!*

Lianyu: UARGH!!
L.A.: It's all your fault for not shut your mouth...



Well, since maybe I could have even more problems because of the catalogation of a walker as a mech or a vehicle, I decided to add the MEGABLOCK some arms. Though I don't really like how they look too much...



The worst thing is that I run out of blue HF armor after make the feet and the right arm. So I had to improvise a weapon for the left one. Initially was going to give to it a six Midak revolving blaster, but the thing was too heavy. So here, take my sword and go to adventure!



And yes, the arms still have some poseability! But again, with the things inside the cube, balance is very unestable...



How the arms are connected.



Right arm.



The design uses two torsos and, in my opinion, is pretty well-covered. Also, it still has enough poseability and can be bent.



For the shoulders I decided to add those Stinger 4.0 speakers. Don't know why, but they don't look bad either.



The left arm has the same structure and design of the right arm, except for the hand.



Close-up to the blade-crossbow thing.



Also, both arms can be equiped on Eruei! =D



Speaking of him...



Here you have Eruei piloting the MEGABLOCK! Maybe I could have done better pictures of the mech without him inside, but I find that cheating...




Visor for aiming!



The cabin. Entirely made with Technic and some Exo-Force displays. Again, the design of it allows the panel to be trapped inside the block.



See? It doesn't fall!



A picture of the pilot and the mech.



And those are all the pictures! Bye bye!








Well, well... Time to talk about the story behind this creation.

Round 2 - Suit Up!
Build a cool mech/hardsuit/power armor for your original character to wear/pilot into battle! There are no size restrictions this time.


I KNEW this would happen. I was expecting a MOC-off style round, one vs. one, with different categories, so I still have a chance of enter in another category, like Vehicles (I have a beautiful idea with too little parts! <3), Weapons or even not related to the other round (build a Rahi). But then, again, "straightforward free-for-all".

fuuuu-rage-guy.png

ALL MY USEFUL PARTS WERE USED ON ERUEI. ALL OF THEM. THE ONLY THINGS I HAD WERE HF BONES, HF PLATES, AND SOME USELESS (for me) TECHNIC BRICKS. I tried some designs, but they didn't work. I didn't have enough small-medium parts for a proper suit, but while I have a lot of HF bones and torsos, I didn't have enough for a proper mech either. So I told the judges I probably quit.

But hey, L.A. is so stubborn (you know, a blockhead! 8D) that couldn't give up so easily. Not for me (I joined to have fun, I didn't expect to pass the third round, don't talk about win), but for the guys who didn't make it. They put a lot of effort this year, I was truly amazed. How could I, after pass the first round, retire and not join the second? I feel like I was insulting the other MOCers who really deserved to pass to the 2nd round. I couldn't enter with a lame armor, but quit wasn't a better option. So, I made my best effort here. I have never built a MOC of those proportions, and I'm happy with the result. More than the judges, I hope the other contestants like this and don't feel disappointed about my work!

Oh, but someone (probably all of you) is wondering if this entry is valid. Well:

"1- The Contest - This is a LEGO Technic/Bionicle/Hero Factory contest. LEGO System parts (that's bricks) should be kept to a minimum.
This is a "purist" contest, so only original, unmodded LEGO parts are allowed."


This is the only rule about parts. I used a giant container officialy developed and launched by the LEGO Group, and it works as a normal brick with other containers (like Duplo works with other Duplo blocks). You may say that you can use Duplo with other regular bricks, but hey, as you have seen, this container can be used with other LEGO branches.




Here you have a proof that the container is an official LEGO set!

Also, bricks have been kept to a minimun this time, using exactly 6 of those parts. The size of them isn't specified on the rules. And I didn't use an unmodded part at all in this building. So, judges, you can say this may not be allowed, but technically I didn't break any rule. Ha!


And after the text wall I always write (even if I don't want to say too much I manage to write a lot somehow!), I only want to add: Good luck to the other contestants, and have fun!

Take care,

L.A.

I'm glad to announce that, even with his doubtful design, MEGABLOCK allowed me to join the Round 3 of the BioCup! And (not so glad to announce that) it's now one of my '3 best MOCs' in the MOCpages ranking! Thanks a lot, everyone!! *^*
Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) You have gone completely insane! I love it! :)
That happened long ago, my dear! <3 Thanks a lot!
Quoting Berial . Another great entry! Very creative indeed! Well done! Your score: 8
Creative, yes, great... I think I could have done better if I had the parts, but oh well, I liked the legs anyways xD
Quoting Chris Yee Love this. Mostly the humour aspect, but the MOC is pretty good too. The design challenges in incorporating such an awkward piece served to produce an inventive solution. 8 points.
Bring smiles to everyone and protect them is the motto of every hero! And show new ways of using parts is my motto! So I wanted to keep those ideas on Eruei, and even if the MOC could be better, I'm glad to see that I achieved that.
Quoting Monarth San This has got to be the most original entry of this round. I simply love it. Here, take these 8 points and your medication to give others a chance ;P
But I don't like those pills )= Hidoi, Monarth-san, hidoi. )= Thanks a lot for your compliment! ;3
Quoting Clever Crowe Deserves it's 8 points from me, just for sheer Hilarious-Saturation-Percentage. Love the amount of effort you put forth in storytelling, too, Miranda. Cheers!
So you love the storytelling for a non-canon MOC. How ironic xD Really glad you liked it, dear! :3
Quoting M D Genius, straight up genius, I kinda expected this, but my expectations wither in comparison to this, much much cleaner than I though it could be
And it's funny that isn't as cleaner as I though I could manage to build it. xD Really, thanks a lot for your kind words! ^^

Quoting Yuri Fassio Thank you SO much for putting the AUTOPLAY music in a place where I could promptly turn it off if I needed to. Lucky you I'm not the kind of judge who'd nick your score down for waking up his GF. Here, get your 8 points and good luck. I'm sick and tired of being forced to consider whether a MOC page might be booby trapped.
Oh my dear... I'm very sorry for bothering you and waking up your girlfriend, please forgive me. However, and without eluding my responsabilities, I have to say that all my pages have audioplay, and since it's something that could have been found on any of the other entries, we have to be ready for this kind of things. It's an option on MOCpages I really like, it gives personality to the creations and as you alreayd know I really value that, not only on my own creation but in others too. So I'll still keep it, and I'll keep doing it in the future. I recognize that I shouldn't put the player that down though, people who doesn't want to hear it should be able to stop the music in the very first moment without need to searching the player. I'll change it to the top. Again, sorry. My apologies to your girlfriend. Oh, and thanks for the 8 points.

Whoa...that is one big Lego brick. That is a rather ingenious idea and well executed. I'm glad that you decided to put arms on it, it just looks better that way. And bow tie is a nice touch, all he needs now is a tall top hat :)

Ho ho, MEGABLOCK seems to have more acceptance that I expected! Thanks a lot everyone, not only for your support but for the 'genius' epithets! <3
Quoting Andrew Mayfield I did NOT see that coming. Fantastic way to use the rules to your advantage, and find an excellent loophole! Best of luck in the contest! :D
FIRE IN THE HOLE, DEAR, FIRE IN THE HOLE. That's how you win the battles!
Quoting Gale Winthrope Does it hurt, being that much of a genius? XD
I was taken to the hospital after finish this 8D
Quoting A Sargent How do you continue to come up with genius ideas for this contest?
Sometimes I forget to take my pills 8D Haha, nah, thanks a lot for your comment review! I love that kind of comments <3
Quoting Elnida Metallic What an incredible use of that gigantic cube! xD You need to win this round, no matter what happens! (>o<)/
ELNIDAAAAA!!! *^* THANKS MY DEAR BROTHER!!
Quoting Ignika and Leewan . How can you be such a genius, L.A. ? This MOC is brilliant, and extremely funny. I sincerely hope you'll pass this round and provide more and more awesomely creative MOCs ! :D
Ha ha! I have the same hopes, dear!
Quoting ZachAttacx ? Brilliant! Just Brilliant! My god L.A, this is ingenious!I also think this is the first mech for the pilot to sit in it and control it! Great Moc! Jolly Good Show.
Yes! It was the first mech for the pilot to sit in it and control it! And it seems it will be the only one 83
Quoting Dylan Mievis +10 points for creativity :D Best idea ever, since you struggled with coming up with a design I must say you choose the best alternative. And it matched Blockhead so that is even better. Really good take on the theme :D
Yeah, I also think this was the best choice. Glad to see I'm not the only one.
Quoting [ Chro ] You, sir, are brilliant.
I know 8B
Quoting Will "Cub" R. If this doesn't get you on to the next round, there is no justice in the world.
Pretty sure there isn't justice in the world then xDD Thanks! =3
Quoting Ahpolki Ihu When I saw that MOC, I instantly had "The Tumbling" (Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep OST) playing through my head.
Hey. It actually works. I think I'll give it a chance. Thanks a lot!!
Quoting Stormjay Rider ~Dulp~ What... XD Let's just hope that the judges have a sense of humor. With how well you did last time, that shouldn't be a problem. P.S. You need to add this to the entry thread. I saw Berial put up a reminder today. So, I'm reminding.
Seriously: I read your comment yesterday, and thanks to you I wasn't eliminated from the start xDD Thanks a lot, my dear!
Quoting Shadowgear 6335 This made my day! A good laugh and the most creative idea I've seen yet! Love it~ I don't care if this doesn't let you win, I love it on it's own! Brilliant, Miranda!
Well, you may not care, but I actually do xD Thanks a lot! <3
Quoting Coconut Fanatic I read the title, and I laughed XD REally it's not too shabby, especially considering your apparent part shortage. The use of the giant blue brick is clever and hilarious.
It was a pun, but I didn't realize that it could sound that I used MegaBlock parts on the MOC until I read the comments xD

This, dear sir, had better get you into the next round, or else I'll make the judges in the battle of the judges pay dearly. They will all receive 1 point if you don't advance! Mwhahaha! But, no, seriously, this is genius. Not only in using the box "LEGO set" as a head, but those legs are awesome, too. This is some Top-Notch MEGA-Block/LEGO Box/Bionicle building, L.A. Good luck with the judges! ~Andrew
