Waterlogged . . Team “Legion Of Verile Energetic Moccers Unified For Frivolous Ingenious Naughtiness” entry for “Will it Float” category of the 2010 MocAthalon! Before you ask… of COURSE it floats! We’ll get to that in a minute. Let’s take a little tour first. Welcome to the Lego thrill ride of the century, Waterlogged! This poor minifig has no clue what’s about to happen to her. Only here, does she truly understand the nature of her predicament. But all too quickly, the ride is over. (awwww) And our brave adventurer is ready to go again! Let’s not disappoint her. Time to hit the water! A key element of the rules of this category… It FLOATS! WAHOO! But let’s see this thing in action shall we? The only power this ride needs is hydro! With a full jug-O-water in hand, we begin to pour… Pressure builds in the holding tank and before you know it… ZOOM! Off she goes on her wet and wild adventure! At the end of her ride is a serine pool of H2O ready to break her fall. SPLASH! And float safely on the cool refreshing waters once again. Fourth Wall Commentary: For those of you that haven’t tried this category yet… it is NOT as easy as it looks! This was my 5th (that’s right FIFTH) attempt to build something that I was A: happy with and B: would actually float. My first 2 were pontoon planes (one microscale and one minifig scale). The pontoons floated just fine, but add the plane to the top and the build had all the buoyancy of your average stone. The third was a microscale submarine... it worked, but... let's not talk about it. For my fourth build, I went and put together a minifig scale pontoon boat that was “inspired by” Kevin Costner’s boat from the movie Waterworld. (shown below) Yes I know the boat in the movie had three pontoons and was much bigger. That’s why I said “inspired by” and not “copied.” Also I only had one Lego net to connect the sections with or it would have been three. It floated and I was (barely) satisfied with it, so I was ready to go with it and leave it at that. Driving home last night, I was trying to think of a name for my boat. The name “Waterlogged” came to mind and I thought “That would be good if the build was an actual log.” DING! And there it was. Woke up this morning and got to work. The result is the first (to my knowledge) fully operational Lego water log flume ride! (if anyone has seen another one, let me know) Till next time true believers! ~Chris.
