Insanity . Started working on it summer 2012. Finished Dec. 2012. . *PHEW* I'm finally done. After months of planning, building, rebuilding, and sweating, I'm done.... ...now what?... ...Well, I guess I have some explaining to do. You're probably all wondering: "What in the world is this?" It all started on one quiet (and hot) summer day... I was bored, so I decided to build a bunch of random minifigs, since I rarely do that kind of stuff. I came up with some figs that I really liked, and I thought it would be a good idea to build a little vig for each of them. The problem was, there were quite a few minifigs and it would take quite a while to make all of the individual vigs. And who likes a bunch of "figs on a plate" anyway?. But then I came upon the bright idea to combine all of the individual vignettes into one massive, multi-layered, diorama. BEHOLD... ..."INSANITY!" By the way, the teaser I posted a few weeks ago was for this build. Pretty misleading, huh? I should become a politician... These next few shots are overviews. Don't worry, I'll go into more detail for each "vignette." I experimented a little with "cliff cutouts" on the back side. Poor kid. Just the wrong day to wear red pajamas in a nightmare... :P Jock: "Hey nerd, whatcha doin' in my secret pond? Nerd: "It's not YOUR secret pond, it's MY World of Warcraft roleplay pond!! note: When I put the pharaoh torso and the gymnast legs together, I immediately thought of something like this. Yeah, I know, I'm nuts. The Golden Knight - son of an alchemist. I built the diorama starting with this part, building all the "tunnels," then finishing with the top. 50 years in the future, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have run out of Indy sequel ideas... In sequel # 14, Indy goes and finds the Holy Grail... again...and brings Marcus Brody back to life!! Then in sequel # 15, they travel to King Solomon's mines in search of the five stones David used to slay Goliath... ...but the evil rock hoarders are not far behind!! 8O Indy: C'mon, Marcus! Now that we have the map, finding those rocks will be easy! Marcus: Ugh. I have a bad feeling about this. What's that on the left? This is how that teaser fits in. This part was my attempt at forced-perspective tunnels. See the teaser page for a more detailed look. And now for a tribute to my favorite "TV show"... ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There are billions of stars, millions of planets, but there is only one man, Terrance McDoogal. Welcome to LIU Atlas. LIU Atlas Special - Charles' Studio Note: This episode is presented in full screen. The corresponding dialogue is underneath each photo. Doog: Welcome to a very special episode of LIU Atlas! Today I'm visiting with my old buddy from media law school, Charles Hawg! We're here in his state-of-the-art newsroom! Charles: Thanks for coming Doog! Ah, just like old times. Nothing's changed; I'm in a business suit and you're in a prison jumpsuit. What was it this time? Doog: Hey, it's not fair! I had NO idea that I'm not allowed to pirate my own DVDs! But you're right, nothing has changed... ...You're still as short as you were in college! Charles: Oh, that's a LOW swing. But seriously, let's not repeat what happened on Pumilio , okay? Doog: You're right. This is childish, Shrimpy. Let's get down to business. Doog: Let's start with the floors. The only reason I can think why they'd be like this is because you hired a very inexperienced interior designer. But that's not the case, right? Charles: Right. This is a highly powerful hologram floor, which can display super-realistic 4D subjects. Let's say news is a bit slow one day. All we have to do is activate the hologram and project highly realistic (but fake) footage of a planet exploding, and we're back on the highest ratings list! And with the green-screen encompassing the room, we can artificially transport any newscaster to the "scene" at a moments notice! Doog: So when Lindze'e Lo'hann crashed her speeder for the 40th time, that was all fake? Charles: No. But pretty much everything else. Doog: Well you just made my day! Moving on. Doog: What's that spiffy thing your elf is carrying? Charles: That's Mad Mike, and he's not an elf. But this brings up an interesting subject. It's common knowledge that TV makes everyone look taller than they really are. But everyone on TV looks normal, right? That's because the TV industry switched over to an all dwarf cast and crew about 30 years ago. Oh, and that thing he's carrying; it's called a microphone. You probably just didn't recognize what it was because we didn't buy it at a toy store. Doog: Wow. That'a a really LOW blow. Charles: Doog! Doog: Okay, okay. So what's that hatchet for then? Charles: Our critics. Doog: Oh. Um... I love your show? Charles: That's good. We try to keep it foc- Doog: AHHHHHHHHH!! IT'S COMING FOR ME!!! Charles: Doog, that's just the makeup bot. You did realize that newscasters have to wear makeup, right? Doog: Almost had a heart attack caused by a makeup bot... ...I'm finished... Doog: Thanks for watching! And remember, um... ...love Charles' news program, if you don't like it, you might be on the news! Charles: DOOG!! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mario: Hey-a Luigi, I think-a it's about-a time we went-a into the turtle-a bouncing business. Luigi: Wait-a, where's-a Francesco? note: There were 3 Mario brothers... ...once. Not exactly a harp. Of course there has to be something Halo in this! Btw, the camera I used had a hard time focusing on both Spartans, so I tried my best to work around that. :( I stumbled upon this (I think) very accurate Plasma Rifle design when I was working on my Classic Space Pocket Money Contest entry. The color's obviously off, but everything else seems just right! This here's Lucky Hank. Wanna know why he's called that? Well, the same day he lost his family, home, job, sanity, clothes, and some of his limbs, he found a penny on the ground. A FREE PENNY! And that's the story of Lucky Hank. I have a feeling that he might reappear in some upcoming builds... :) Silent, but deadly. If you don't really get it, just let me know. In the near future, due to the growing global population, the UEA begins to genetically tamper with the average chicken to increase its efficiency. Of course, things go wrong, mutant chickens escape from the facilities, and chaos ensues! Welcome to my apocalypse spoof: Avian Apoc ! A lone survivor attempts to get ahold of a papaya to satisfy her hunger. But first she has to get past the mutant chicken! Every apoc model has to have a bullet-ridden chunk of a wall! :P The Red October's captain playing with submarine models. Of course they're heading right for each other! :D The hatch connects the scene beneath the sub to the sub. Overlooking the great city of Gothampshire lies the mysterious lighthouse. *Hans Zimmer music* Bruceth Waynyard. The Batknight. The Batknight never kills anyone, so what looks like a deadly mace in his hand is actually a chimney cleaner, but he can still beat anyone up with it. Uh-oh! The sneaky Jester is on the loose! Thanks for viewing! :)
