More Pictures: Just a bunch of pictures combined to show you more of the MOCs and a MOC that didn't make the final cut. Make sure the look at 'em all.
Apologies: Okay, so it's not that great, but it's my best shot for as many days as I built it in. I have to apologize for writing three sentences during the future scene, but hey, at least I didn't write a long comic strip like Kelso. (It's alright Mark, we still like you.)
Also please don't say anything about the chickens' combs being sideways...I've already killed myself for that. =)
Fourth wall commentary – Phipson is right. It's very scary and very, very hard trying to keep up with all the other master builders. And to make it even more terrifying, I happened to realize that I'm the first creator under the age of eighteen to be tagged. Talk about pressure! I almost made a huge war at the death of Clucky, but then I made these two gangster type dudes, and thought, "Why not make a gang war?" But then the writer in me wanted to cap off the past episode, so I did so while introducing new characters and sealing the doom of Clucky. I thought it was kinda cruel killing the road workers in Shannonoia, but that town is getting to big anyway. Plus, if the Chickenator is against Rory then he's against everything else that's good, right?
The tension is building, the audience is rising, what will happen? The next person in control is our very own camp loving Tennessean: LegoLord 365
So I go AWOL from MOCpages for a week and look what I miss. I like the quick turnaround, keeping the game going, but I do think another day or two to add a bit of polish to some scenes would have served you well. At any rate, way to hold your own playing with the big boys. Some random thoughts: Darn that Kelso and his more-than-four-lines bad example... How come this is the first I'm hearing of hidden tunnels in Shannonia? You'd think I'd know about them, having built the place... Giant evil flaming grill -- surreal... The chickenator joins forces with dead Clucky's henchmen to kill Rory and the king on the other hand wants to save Rory, what's so hard to follow? Come on people, keep up... I'm pretty sure Nadroj is under eighteen... I think you're rubbing those cypress trees in my face on purpose...
Very nice, very nice. I think the Chickenator is going to make an interesting character. Simple landscapes, to be sure, but they work well. I still have no idea what the flame-shooting grill is, but it looks good, so I guess it works?
And I have a question about the whole MOCtag thing. How does one become eligible to be chosen?
The nice thing about being 14 is you'll grow out of it, not that getting older is that great. There's that whole responsibility thing and someone always expects you to get a job and all. It's been bummin' me out for years. I wish I had some LEGO when I was 14 but it wasn't something that we had as kids. I always seem to enjoy your stuff and this was fun. I like the throne room and the title pic. Both nice. garth
Lets see. The Intro Slide is awesome. Really like the shadows and artsy style. The chickenator and story are good as well. The MOC builds themselves could use a bit of touch-up, but they are definitely good enough to make this story work. Well played. Another nice addition to MOC tag.
*Key "Sound of Music Soundtrack"* I am 14, going on 15 [this month]...leavin you [JD], -=LL=-, and Sho Fu-whatever in the dust...:P...definitely not the best MOCtag, but it's still really good. Following Kelso, Young, Goldman, and Ocean isn't easy, I know.
JD, you don't give yourself enough credit!! No doubt it's tough to do follow-ups of any kind. Not only do you have building standards you want to meet or exceed, but you've got a preconceived story that has to have some continuity with the last, AND you have to add your own twists in a way that's interesting, humorous, and open to additions for the next guy - yeah...no, pressure. You did beautifully!! Love the first MOC (simple and elegant), great presentation, the grill-tile from hell's hilarious, and you've set things up nicely for LL. Really well done, man!!!!
Mate WELL DONE! Terrific work with the builds, story and also your camera work and photos. The last shot of the Chickenator meeting the two villians is very dramatic. And the "evil grille"? Priceless! Don't worry about little things like the combs sideways; I didn't notice, I was too wrapped up in the story. Quality work man.
Congratulations! Nice way to keep the high standards of this little project. I'm lovin how the Chickenator, who I originally sent to protect Rory is now out to kill him. And nice work on the names of the henchmen! This is just a great addition all round! Can't wait to see where LL takes it from here. you did us all proud, take a bow. ~ Chris.
DANG JD, This totally rocks...I had no idea what you where up to, so this is a total surprise...JOB WELL DONE. It must have been hard competing with almost every MASTER MOCER out there...BUT IN MY OPINION YOU DID...WELL DONE MATE!
Well well well, not bad for a fourteen year old. Nicely done here, I can't wait to see who Legolord picks... So nice job, Great considering the masters you had to compete with. Nice. Good. Awesome. Sweet. WHEN WILL I SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!
