MO Round 4: Stuart Lucas vs. Zoltan K.
From the movie 'The Dark Knight', the Batman/Joker interrogation scene.
About this creation
This is an entry in the MocOlympics 2013. My worthy opponent is Zoltan K. Great to have Hungary represented on MOCpages, and in the contest!


The challenge for this round was to build a scene from one of three movies. I knew that I was going to be very short on building time this round, with relatives staying last weekend and spending this weekend away from my Lego and any internet access. So I decided to go for a fairly sparse scene that focuses on the characters - in this case the unnerving interrogation scene from The Dark Knight. You can watch the original here!


I tried to capture the moment when Batman drags the Joker across the table (about 2 minutes into the scene). This is where we realise how much the Joker is getting under his skin, and wonder whether he's about to lose it completely...



Let me complement the judges on a very well designed round. Restrictive enough to force builders to push their boundaries, but flexible enough to allow a lot of different approaches. I'd like to have built more of the interrogation room, but due to my time constraints had to be fairly minimalist!


The table... I'm quite pleased with the desk lamp design.


The bat!


Pity that cloak isn't black on both sides, but it gives a great silhouette.


The Joker!



Well, I'm happy with how all of the elements of this MOC turned out, but given the quality of my opponent's previous entries, I'm not really expecting to progress... even so it's been a lot of fun and thanks again to the judges for all your work!

I vividly recall this scene. Great brick sculpting of the figs!

Congratulations Stu, well done. Obviously the subject matter is close to my heart and i'm pleased to say my picky standards regarding Joker builds are satisfied here! Loving both figs, there are neat touches and parts use in each to achieve great shapes and the poseability offers a lot in setting the scene. I can sympathise with having a shortened round (though mine was entirely self-induced *hic*)but I think the simpler presentation with the table and lamp is great for this scene and did not detract at all. Once again, there WILL be a Brit called Stu in the semi-final, but which one? Good luck to you sir.

Man it was a close call! While Zoltan really put in a first class moc, I think you got him this round. You got my vote! Welcome to round 5! ~ Chris.

Quoting Ian Spacek Haha, totally unrelated to judging, I had to comment on this! Why? Because I'm actually currently working on a Joker bust for CfC and you came up with the the same collar technique! I've also been playing with red teeth for scars, though I might end up using mini-fig hands. We'll see! As they say, great minds think alike...
I spent some time working out how to attach the lapels at an angle I was happy with! I never thought about minifig hands, that could work really well, especially if you depict him with his mouth open. I look forward to seeing your build!

Quoting Ron L. Mitchell Who let Dave Kaleta in here? Congrats on being blogged!
I don't think I'm in his league, but it was fun to do a batman MOC. Thanks for the vote of confidence!

It was a hard decision, but in the end...my vote goes to your opponent. Fun build all the same! TDK is my all time favorite superhero movie! I requested to have it as one of the options for this Round, so I'm glad someone picked it! Like I said, close call! I could still see the tide potentially turning in your favor. Good luck with your other judges!

Fantastic work Stuart! Love the Bat, his belt is clever and the sculpted body work is impressive. Joker is just perfect. That face! I'm glad you chose this scene from the movie, it truly is pivotal on many levels. Great job and good luck!

Noice! Love the streaked green in Jokers hair. I never did see the movie, but I've seen pictures of the Heath Ledger (That's his name right?) and this matches him very well. Good luck!

I like his bat-belt and the way that you've made the Joker's face. Good luck in the competition.
