Fourth wall commentary – Normally this goes at the end but I thought this moc (or Mock) needed a little set up. While getting all giddy with my fellow AFOL brethren about “Brickworld”, we felt bad that one of our flock in particular was unable to attend. Most of us here on the North American Continent might meet up at a convention or something in the future. But a Trans-Atlantic flight is a little much for even the most devoted Moccer. I told Shannon that we’d light a candle for him and raise a “Fosters” in his honor. He half jokingly replied with something to the effect of “Don’t be a pansy with the candle, take a sig-fig of me and put him in compromising and humorous situations. Good idea Shannon, I’ll keep that in mind. Then of course a few weeks later, there was Shannon’s birthday. And while I consider Shano a good friend, there was just no way I was gonna be able to go to Australia to “assist” in the festivities. This did however get me thinking again (always dangerous). What could we do for our friend’s birthday? With all the “activity” on MOC pages recently the wheels started spinning (Squeak squeak squeak). I became inspired and came up with a concept. I can’t reveal all just yet, that would spoil the REAL surprise. Now, bear with us here. The first two parts are the one you’re on now and then next is our trip to Brickworld. Both fairly safe and mostly devoid of good taste. It’s gonna be part three were things start to go all “M. Night” on your @$$ and get interesting. Just wait… You’ll see what I mean. (Please conserve all MAJOR criticism of the concept till part 3 where all will become clear) I did my best to make the fig look as close to Shannon as possible but LEGO hasn’t made a Gollum Minifig yet (I could swear that Ocean and Smeagol were separated at birth). Just remember Shannon, this was your idea… (sort of)
SigOcean Figgy is getting ready to attend his first Lego convention. “Brickworld” in Chicago! Let’s peek in and see how things are coming.
“Hi. I’m SigOcean. I’m really excited to go to the convention and see all the new HALO and Bellville stuff! OOO, I hope they have Funnel Cakes!”
SigOcean was in the bathroom getting ready when we heard singing?!? We have GOT to check this out…
“It’s fun to stay at the Y. M. C. A. It’s fun to stay… what the? Hey! Get out of here! This isn’t Sig-Figs Gone Wild! I better not find this on Pornomocs.com damnit!”
(Bathroom designed by our friends in the LIU. Come on, you had to see that one coming)
After SigOcean calmed down and released our camera man from the choke hold, he decided to get dressed…
“No, this outfit is only for special occasions. Better go a little more “low key” for this event.”
“Always better to go with my old stand-by, jeans and a t-shirt. Chicks dig Batman right?”
“Well, I’m off. This is SO exciting! I can’t wait to meet the real live Master Chief!”
SigOcean Figgy is off to BrickWorld (His legs are really short so it will take about ten days to walk there. Oddly enough, the convention starts in ten days. Coincidence...). Be sure to check back for the further real life adventures of… SIGOCEAN FIGGY!
Just in case you're wondering, this was built and photographed BEFORE I got "tagged". I just wanted to wait till we were closer to the convention to post it. (Good thing too. Like I could spare any time NOT working on the tag.) ~ Chris.
I'm still trying to figure out why people can't read???? As of right now MOCtag#6 is UP! But, THIS WAS BUILT AND PHOTOGRAPHED BEFORE I WAS TAGGED! I was working on the tag from the day that Kelso tagged me! (sorry, I got a little ranty there... anyway, #6 is up. go look) ~ Chris.
Too funny - your link to my page actually elicited a true LOL. Good thing I had already finished my Corona or I would have sprayed my monitor - with the Corona that is ;-) Nice job on the creation - it's pretty slick. Lee.
Blade, I do have to work for a living ya know. Ahh, how nice it would be to have summers off and have someone else pay the bills... Stay young as long as you can kids! I know all you want to do is be 14 then 16 then 18... Trust me, enjoy it while you can! Did I start ranting again? Anyway, 1: I'll be posting #6 on Wednesday or Thursday (work, wife and kid permitting). 2: Yes, Twinkies will be fine 3: The toilet is so big cause Shannon has a real big... umm, friend who comes over like, all the time (yeah, that'll work) 4: I'm not sure what kind of groundhog day loophole your living in, but I just said "stay tuned" a few hours ago and 5: Hey, I have until NEXT Saturday anyway! ~ Chris.
OKEY DOKEY...Where is it...I have been staring at my Moniter for the last 2 days and...But you said stay tuned...Dangit...Hey I was wondering if I can pay you in Twinkies...I can?...Cool Thanks...UM just saying, In Ocean's bathroom, That's one big Toilet...Just sayin'...
Wow, can't wait for part 2! Serously, keep the dress. Saddly, I will not be able to atend Brickworld, but I will be there in spirit. Eat a funnel cake for me, Shanno. Oh, and Chris, we are all waiting for the next MOCtag!
Well, Shan that's quite a six-pack you're sportin' there in your Batman T. It must be all those hard core Lego workouts and midnight funnel cake sessions. Glad to know you're fit, cause my sources tell me that you're in for a serious workout!
I really wish I could go to a brickworld con(vention)(did I really have to say that?) some time,maybe when I am older,tell me is there a website for information on these "brickworld cons?"oh,and that part about the "halo mocs and belvill was really funny,tel us shannon,do you have a secret MOCers life?
To Brickworld or Bust!!!! I'm not going but look forward to all of the photos. Do they have girls dress up in costumes like they do at the video game conventions? Nice bathroom by the way. Shannon must be a neat freak because that was sparkling white.
Funnel Cakes! Phipson,I wish I were about twenty years older,boy do I want some cakes.By the way,I went to BrickWorld when I was four years old,I can barely remember it,but that's were I bought a really cool 25 aniversery bucket.Hope you have a good time with the rest of the Mocbrothers~LL
