Team: Legion Of Virile Energetic Moccers Unified For Frivolous Ingenious Naughtiness.
Catagory: 100 Piece Challenge.
For this challenge, I built a well. My goal on this one was not so much the looks but the functionality. Turning the lever shown to the right of the well left will lower the barrel into the well as seen in this pic. Turning it right will bring the basket back up to colect the water.
I really love this. The functionality of it is what really put it over the top for me. I've been getting more and more into this aspect myself on my builds and have only recently begun to understand just how hard that really is. You pulled it off very nicely. Good show sir. Good show. ~ Chris.

If I were a building master, I'd still ask you for advice! See you later, alligator!
Wow, that's a comment. Thank you for the support. In this case, Keith is completely right. Having someone falling into it might have spiced things up. I guess when your limited to 100 pieces, such creativity can be hard to achieve. Thanks for stopping by. -Dylan
Well, lend me your ears.
First of all, I love the idea. A LEGO well, well (pun intended) is really... swell. The well could've been even better with bricks at the bottom, so that LEGO pilgrims (or some before-america time period minifig) could go get bricks to build civilization (or a swimming pool!).
Second, like the guy below me said, it's boring. Link it to an alien crash in a small Texas city on a ranch, like the episode of UFO Hunters on the History channel, or have it full of guts, such as a foot from Bigfoot (maybe he'll lend you a toe) or something like a bottomless pit, maybe a few poisonous monster, mutant snakes.
Third, I can't say anything really bad, except that it's a little bland. Spice it up with a minifig fetching water, or old Timmy falling down it! Maybe have it overflow. Back on topic, it's a great MOC and I like it a lot. Sooner or later, though, good comments will litter it up so badly that you'll be dancing in the limelight.
Fourth, if you were a new person to MOCpages, and you saw how good this MOC was, you'd push yourself to the limits. That's not a bad thing, however, in my Prof. Olympic (yes, I changed my name five times) days I was researching and I found more people (including me) who try to make the best MOC ever have found out it's mediocre compared to the MOC it was inspired by.
Finally the end, I say that it's just fantastic and keep up the amazingly spectacular work, as long as you make it exciting! If I were a building master, I'd still ask you for advice! See you later, alligator!
Staying within the realm of your strengths - never a bad strategy. This moc really appeals to me for some reason. It seems so peaceful - it is very artistic. I was going to give you four, but the functionality and the 'feeling' I get from this push you up to five (5) points. Lee.
