Prandlas Crab . For the 2012 BioCup, Round 2, against Toa Phosphorus, in the category Abyssal Rahi... the Prandlas Crab. .
The 2012 Bio Cup can be found here.
My opponent's entry, the gruesomely magnificent Krothak, is here.
Inspired by both the fiddler crab and the Japanese spider crab.
So it went like this.
I get back from camp.
I find out that my family vacation actualy begins two days before I thought it did.
So I quickly build my PBC entries (Lowig and Balard).
I post them the morning I leave. I take a small amount of parts with me. That's fine.
The next day I find out the categories and such for the BioCup.
That's fine too. So I start building in a Seattle hotel. Then I realize that the parts I need to complete it are at home. Okay.
So yesterday I finish up most of the MOC on the plane from San Fran, with the exception of the aformentioned parts at home that I still needed.
And last night I get home really late and finish the MOC.
Then I take pictures. When I go to upload, oh look, the battery's dead. Damn.
So I charge the camera and upload my entry. At like 12:45. Whew.
On top of that the Krothak was just plain awesome. Nothing I could build under circumstances and with what parts I had could allow me to beat that.
So like I said, Phos built a great entry, and (although under normal circumstances I think I possibly could've beat him,) this time I had no chance against the Krothak. I didn't expect to win, and looking at the comments, I see that I didn't. Good luck in round three, Phos, and everyone else participating. :)
Thanks for leniency on deadline, judges.
