This is my entry into the 2011 MOC Athalon.....category is:
30. Themed Tower:
Build a tower at least 4 levels high telling a story or depicting a theme. IE: Star Wars Episodes, Lord of the Rings scenes, Monsters, evolution of technology, etc.
Most people know the Seven Deadly Sins, but very few people avoid them. I built a tower to represent the sins, and hopefully educate you at the same time.
On the first floor of the tower we see the Sin of LUST. Phipson just HAD to come down to the local strip joint to check out the new platinum blonde. She kinda looks familiar, eh?
On the second floor we see Shifu demonstrating the Sin of GLUTTONY. That sucka just can't get enough of his bacon.....or Shitaki mushrooms. (Yes that bit is LEGO, check out the new Haggrad's hut for mushroom goodies!)
Here on the third floor we see the new platinum blonde stripper showing us the Sin of GREED. Oops Leda, looks like your wig fell off while diving for the cash!
Bones is on the fourth floor showing us the Sin of SLOTH. Looks like he's withering away watching reruns of The Jersey Shore. Look, he even has a Harry Potter poster.....no wonder he lives in San Fran!
On the fifth floor, we see Bones and Phipson diving for cover......
Ahhhhh, that's because this is showing us the Sin of WRATH! It seems the judges gave a low score to a clone kiddie, and he's more than just a young padawon.
Phipson has everything a man could want in life. Great family, good friends, nice home. But here we see that even a man with everything can still have the Sin of ENVY.
It's rough for a man to see a tranny get the better of him at a urinal.
It's OK Phip, you still got us!
Here we see a man living with the Sin of PRIDE. Some say it's the deadliest of them all, as it leads to all other sins. This particular man received a bronze trophy. He feels betrayed by the judges.
We can see that he is used to winning everything and getting gold trophies and awards. His pride has made him fitful and full of rage. He is also greedy. His lust for revenge knows no bounds. See.....PRIDE is a gateway sin!
Oh look.....Bones happens to be in the background doing something. What is that boy up to?!
It looks like he's tripping on something....what could it be?!
Ohhhhhhh it's a "5"!!!!
Shot of the tower put together.
I did have to take each section apart for taking pics because I couldn't get the lighting right, but they do all go together as shown in the final photo. It definitely gets wobbly, even though I tried my best to make sure there were some load bearing walls. (Shut it Chris!)
This was rather quite fun to mess with everyone, as you guys are such nasty little sinners! :P
Thanks to Hans for helping out with some great ideas and sparking this tower in the first place.
Quoting karsten Rees
wow is it me or are you a catholic ??? or were you bored senseless and had to make something
Oh man, you totally busted me! Though I don't seem to remember Catholicism being any worse than Christianity. Either way, you're way off. In fact I was so bored senseless that I just HAD to make this for a contest (which you would know if you actually read the description in the first paragraph). Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am an active participant in at least 9 of those 7 deadly sins.
HAHAHA, brilliant! Smack, a cool theme and a tidy little tower. Your score = 0,1,2,3,4.....um.....siht, what comes after 4? Ah well, your score = CINQ! (Pronounced "SANK" if I recall my French) It means 5
Well-organized thematically, well-executed comically, and well-built architecturally. A great build that made me smile, in other words. Also, this MOC serves as a warning . . . to whom, I'm not sure, but a warning nevertheless.
