M.O. Round 2 - BrickMaster Tommy vs James Mckinnon: Bucket List Vignette
Category: Five things I want to do before I die. Everyone secretly has a number of things they want to have ticked off their bucket list before they go. Build five scenes of those as yet unfulfilled options.
About this creation
Here's the MocOlympics link. And Here's my opponent's page.


To be honest, I hadn't really thought about my bucket list before this last week. I had two (maybe three) things that I wanted to do before I "kicked the bucket". So, after a lot of thinking and soul searching, I've come up with the top five things I want to do before the end.

All five activities are placed in a simple 8x8 vignette tower. So, starting from the top, we have...


Bungee jumping! As a guy who is somewhat afraid of heights (and by "somewhat afraid" I mean "deathly afraid"!) I've been interested in such extreme activities as bungee jumping and skydiving. Granted, I've been interested from afar...but I would like to attempt bungee jumping at some point.


My adoring public.


Touring Europe. I am fascinated with the European culture. I've always wanted to tour the big cities sometime. Maybe even pick up a language or two!


This is a very serious door...with a very serious guard...who has a very serious face...seriously.


Write a book! I have a very active imagination. I also have a desire to share some of my story ideas with the world and future generations! Therefore, I shall write a book. Or...type a book...'cause that's how everyone does it these days.


This tree was the bane of my existence. It caused many a sleepless night. At one point, I was so obsessed over getting the tree right that I forgot what this level was supposed to be about. If I make it to the next round...i hope I don't have to build trees.


Fly an airplane! Going back to my fear of heights...I want to actually learn how to fly an airplane someday. I should probably add that I also want to learn how to LAND the airplane.


Never have I done microscale before. I know it looks very simplistic...I wanted to add more, but time constraints would not allow. *sigh*


Go deep sea diving in the Mediterranean! How cool would that be? Off the Isles of Crete there are all sorts of ruins under the sea. I would love to be able to see these ancient ruins for myself.


The look on my figs face is because a shark took the last picture. Apparently, they instagram their food too.

Very impressive squeezing all those activities into one tower. The micro scale level is inspired.

Well done on advancing! Good builds on different subjects and placing a 8x8 tower costraint on yourself has made it tricky, but you've done a good job.

Both you and your opponent had fun bucket lists, builds, and entertaining write-ups! But unfortunately I can only select one of you. Congratulations Tommy, you've got my vote!

Nicely put together tower and presentation! I can't decide if the underwater or the airplance scene is my favorite. :)

I love all the detailing, and the work on the tree was definitely worth it! I also like the bungee jumping tower, and the microscale biplane!

Nice build! I like the way you've arranged all five items in a tower. It's been good to face someone who I'm never heard of before the contest. May the best man win.
