This is my May Group Build for the Alternates Group. The objective is to take this one set and build something from only those pieces.
About this creation
Here is the original set, Power Miners: 8188, fire blaster.
And here is my alternate...
He will make you serve up his dinner on twelve plates, When you're a Rock Monster's prisoner.
He will make you clear away his plates when he is done, but you cannot carry only a few at a time, when you're a Rock Monster's prisoner.
Instead he will make you balance all twelve on your head!
And navigate an obsticle course while you do so!
But be quick because he will strap a ticking time bomb to your feet...
when you're a Rock Monster's prisoner.
First are the tyres, but don't stumble or you'll have to start over!
I said don't stumble!!!
And the next torture to face, when you're a Rock Monster's prisoner,
Is the tightrope! With spikes below,
And a hot blue flame to singe the nether regions when you slip.
At last success, and momentary relief... But you're a Rock Monster's prisoner,
And you remember he still needs dessert...
These are the pieces I didn't use.
This is the Rock Monster's chair and table.
Very hard thing to do, building with such a limited selection of pieces! And I swore after attempting it in the MOCathalon I would never try another alternate build again... obviously didn't swear loud enough... so yeah... not one of my better works, but hope it gave you a little giggle.
It's people like you that perpetuate the unfair stereo type that all rock monsters are jerks! I mean really, that's like saying that all cops eat donuts and beat suspects for fun or that all artists just sit around inhaling paint fumes all day or... You know what, now that I've thought about it, you're right. Rock Monsters ARE all jerks! (time to go moderate my own comment here...) Great work Leda! Your originality with such limited parts shows just how creative (drunk) you truly are! Thanks for the giggle! ~ Chris.
