Very impressive, JD, but I have to give this round to Will. I really enjoyed the SNOT base and the amount of detail you put into the mech. The things that let you down here was the lack of articulation in the mech and the minifig action is missing a certain "something." Very well done besides. I'd like to see more mecha from you ;)
It's a clean build, which is ordinarily a compliment, but which will probably lose you this round. It reminds me of my building style in a way: I can't remember what specific MOC he was critiquing that brought it up, but the wise Brian K. once said my dioramas tended to look "sterile," meaning a lack of little details that bring a scene to life... I think that may be the issue here.
This is very well done, JD, but to me it doesn't quite capture the "post-apoc" feel that Will portrayed in his MOC; of course, my opinion does not matter here, just follow your muse! Besides that, I love it! Great street, and you say you can't build a mech? Quit your modesty, boy. This MOC-off could possibly be the most epic competition, besides the MocOlympics, that I have ever seen on MOCpages. This could get ugly near the end...let's see some blood! Yours brickly, Nick
Yeah, it seems a lot of us get our mech inspiration from mechwarrior (If my Snow Leopard wasn't a rip off of a Mad Cat I don't know what would be). This is a great entry JD! The mech is great and the back story is really good. I'm gonna have to give my vote to Will though. While you're creation is VERY cool, His has a more that "post apoc" feel that we're all used to. Not that this couldn't happen in a post apoc setting but... You know what I'm saying. Great job none the less. ~ Chris.
The story is really good (it could be a excellent start for a longer story !) - The Mech is not over-complicated, but it's classical (in a good way) and beautiful ! Overall this is very enjoyable. Good luck !
No thanks JD, and Garth: in Apocalypses, there would be people who survived in bomb-shelters, and also structures without maintinence would corode over time, even if there weren't any survivors to shoot it all to the ground. And JD: even if it was on purpose, it's just a bit bulky. But it's not like I could do better. :P P.S. did ya email the link to our judges?
I like the clean lines. Some stuff will still look nice after the apocolypse. There won't be enough people left alive to ruin all the nice things for years. I know if I was left over at the end I'd be glad to find a super mech that can help me blow things up. For a cool Post-apoc movie people don't seem to have seen, keep an eye out on for The World, The Flesh and the Devil, a 1959 movie with Harry Belafonte. It runs on TMC once in a while. Both you and will have nice pieces and I wouldn't envy judges one bit. Good luck. garth
Ok. It needs more rubble, and the road looks a little too "perfect". The mech is good, but the legs need a bit of work [not very flexy]. I really liked the hardsuit though, and also the story...and the mechs guns aren't bad :p ~Will
