About this creation
MO R2 – Chris Roach Vs Barrett K – Enter Sandman

Link to the MOC Olympics click here

Link to my Opponents Page: Barrett K click here

Category: On that note! Pick a desired piece of music, listen to it carefully, and then create a MOC artistically representing it in LEGO. Select something non-lyrical perhaps! What we don't want to see is a typical rock band standing on a stage.

Selected Piece: Enter Sandman – Metallica click here It helps if you listen to the song as you view the MOC! This song is about our fears and nightmares – ironically those things we fear as kids are not as scary as the trials of real life!

So here's my interpretation of the song. Little Johnny stayed up late eating fast food and playing Call of Duty. He left his ipod on Metallica's greatest hits. Now he finally fell asleep, let the Sandman come…



If you are not familiar with this Metallica Classic here are the Lyrics with some MOCistration:

Say your prayers little one
Don't forget my son
To include everyone


I tuck you in
Warm within

Keep you free from sin
'Til the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land


Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of snow white
Dreams of war


Dreams of lies
Dreams of dragons fire



And of things that will bite, yeah


Sleep with one eye open
Grippin' your pillow tight



Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land



(Whisper)
Now I lay me down to sleep (x2)
Pray the lord my soul to keep (x2)
And if I die before I wake (x2)
Pray the lord my soul to take (x2)


Hush little baby don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beast under your bed
In your closet in your head


Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land
We're off to never never-land


Take my hand
We're off to never never-land
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land
We're off to never never-land

Johnny’s room (pre nightmares)…






the cast in this dream (nightmare)...

Little Johnny and Teddy...


The Canadian Armed forces...


The Sandman...


Pinky the Dragon...


Builder’s notes. Enter Sandman was the song that stuck in my head when I saw what the R2 category was so I as they say go with your first instinct. The song and MOC have both religious and fear / nightmare imagery. It was also a chance for me to build something different ie the minifig bedroom (stage) and accessories and to play with photography and bringing in and removing lego elements (players/cast) in an out of the set or the dream. Good luck to all in this round. Sleep with one eye open!

thanks - I'll go check yours out!
Quoting Delatron 3000 Brilliant stuff Chris, first rate. I actually did a tiny version of this song (8x8 vig) for a lyric contest a few years back so good choice! Although admittedly mine was built in an evening and you've somewhat surpassed it on scale, technique, presentation.... lets just say yours is better! Well done.

thanks but I doubt luck will have anything to do with it. It'll all depend who I am matched up against and the category. I've heard the brackets are working a little different this year! We'll soon see! Cheers!
Quoting Barrett K. Congratulations on moving on Chris! Best of luck in round three!

thank you sir!
Quoting David Alexander Smith Got my toe tapping to the beat on first view. Not only is your build great technically, but for me adds to the song and unlocks meaning. This does the job of a great music video or album cover. You get my vote.

thank you - I will endeavour to crank it up a notch for the next round!
Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Chris, like I just 'told' Barrett, this was not easy. I've had a good, long look at your and his creations and the decision I had to make was hard. Though you added some excellent details and designs to your MOC, which I enjoyed, I liked his steel horse a bit better. He would have gotten my vote, but he missed the category, so in the end, you get my vote. Good luck with the other judges.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist I think you pretty much nailed this one. Great composition of the room, the angled walls are a brilliant touch. You have my vote!

3D movies leave me with a headache, I try to avoid them. I usually stick with 2D! Glad u like this though. cheers!
Quoting El Barto ! Excellent work here, Chief! They should have put you in charge of the video! I've been seeing the ads for their new 3D movie, I figure you must have gone already. Good luck with the judges!

I enjoy building contests they give me a chance to stretch out of my usual parameters.
Quoting matt rowntRee I love how I have to go back and read the builder's name over and over! Chris, this is wonderful to see your talents outside mechs and transformers. This is a wonderful interpretation of the vision of the song. Very clever and complete realization. Awesome!

I was thinking it might transform and devour johnny - but for the MO I like to get away from my usual building styles of formers and mechs.
Quoting Mihe Stonee Really well done Chris ! I'm surprised that the bed wasn't a transforming sandman - but really beautiful done all the way !
