About this creation

HP Lovecraft did, all the time....

2013 MocOlympics

Category for R2: Build a 'Lovecraftian' moc

Opponent : Brick Savage

Mr Lovecraft is sitting quietly in his study, about to eat his lunch (he always had pasta, for some reason...)



He's there again, isn't he ?



Strange things are living in drawers...



Many arcane volumes to do with the occult, and fantastical monsters to provide inspiration. Or nightmares.



Or maybe these visions are to do with something else ? Note to self: lay off those unidentified and undoubtedly toxic liqueurs.



Or perhaps he's all too real and he's found another way in...



Here's a view of the whole set-up. It's roughly six times minifig scale.



Not a good idea to leave that open, you never know what's out there! Nice curtains (?) They look expensive...



Desk with desk-y stuff.



The room without furniture.



This is the MocOlympics, not a branch of Ikea!



Lovecraft didn't like new technology, but he did have a typewriter and here it is. This is my favourite thing in this build...



And this isn't...

Quoting Alex Rode Nick, you have to post a tutorial for your brickbuilt figures. I just spent a couple hours trying to figure them out and I kept hitting a brick wall!!
First things first, get a large handful of 1x1 bricks with stud on 1 side... thanks Alex, next time I do one I'll show him disassembled :-)

This is the best detailed LEGO-work I ever saw. Every detail is a masterpiece of the worldwide LEGO-story. Now I know why Your 2CV is much more better.

Well I have finally gotten around to commenting on every R2 build, and more by luck than judgement I think I have saved the best to last - certainly one of my favourites anyway. Lots and lots of lovely details - the typewriter and globe, the minifig legs as curtain tie-backs, the flag-pasta. Not forgetting the less-obvious but still very effective touches like the picture and frame, open book, the cornice and the decision to go studless. I recall from last year's competition your bug and matchbox build and thinking you were stepping outside your comfort zone very ably then and it just keeps going - not a wheel in sight! Well done on advancing, great job.

Great work, Nick. So this one is all about parts usage. Some impressive vision using the flags as spaghetti, and the fig legs on the curtains is a stroke of genius. Well done on the typewriter as well. I like the representation of gesticulation with the man, especially when he's turning around to look out the window. Perfect MOC.

You can pontificate about the great building throughout the MOC, but it's the atmosphere you've created that gets you my vote. Beautiful paranoia in brick form.

I wasn't convinced at first, but the more time I spent looking at your entry the more it impressed me. All the details like the globe, typewriter, and desk drawers are done to perfection. (Even if the resident Lovecraft expert says it's not historically accurate...) You earn my vote, good luck in round three!

Although LukeClarenceVan... came up with the category, I'm glad to be a judge in this bracket (for reasons that are obvious to those who know me). Apart from your amazing entry, you impress me with your knowledge about Lovecraft that you incorporated into your MOC (although your typewriter model is quite different from the one he (most probably) owned, hehehe). I enjoyed your building techniques and designs so much, that you get my vote. Excellent work, Nick.

This is superb. So many great details. I keep seeing things everytime I look, like the fork and the glass. The stance of the guy in the "He's there again, isn't he" pic is perfect. So lifelike.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 I don t know 'lovecraft' or what it refers to, but, this scene is breath taking! I never built on that scale, maybe that s why it impresses me so, the colors, props, details, everything seems to shine, I agree that the solutions you applied are very smart, brilliant piece Nick!!!
HP Lovecraft, 1890-1937. Author often described as 'the father of modern horror/fantasy fiction.' Thanks Frank.

TEN HEADS!!!!! I loved the typewriter and the opened book and the bottles in the refrigerator and of course the macaroni and tomato sauce (hey I am ITALIAN)! The furniture was spot on! Bravo for that! I enjoyed this MOC very much! the details were excellently done! Including your "monster" designs! Your window with sliding sash was awesome and the window treatment was special!

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! Fully realized and purposefully executed. Nick, you've outdone yourself here. Everything is so subtle and cleanly built, I kept having to scan over it again to judge the scale. All the details are superior, the open book, the glass of "apple juice", the furniture, and that perfect typewriter. Delightfully creepy Cthulhu. Exceptional accomplishment!
