This is my entry into the 2011 MOC Athalon.....category is:
17. A Pirate's Life.
Build the Captain's Cabin of a pirate ship. Minifig scale and interior only, so no need to build the whole bloody ship. Create the Captain too and give him a small back story. You will be judged on your attention to detail and skill at personalizing a set to fit a character
Arrrghhhh avast lads and lasses. Ye didn't think I be finishin' the competition without a tour of me digs did ya? Oh ho-ho! How wrong you were lad. Ye must be thick in the school boy. I be Heath "kik36" Flor, and I also be known as Captain Jameson. Welcome to the special edition MTV "Caribbean cribs"! (does that show even exist anymore?)
First off let me show ye my prized possessions. A pirate ain't worth his salt without a sextant. Cool it Phipson, you be the thickest one in the lot lad. It be used for navigation my boy. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Over here be me other prized possessions. WEAPONS!!! The best way to keep Phipson away is with a sharp jab to the rear lads......perhaps that didn't come out right....sometimes a sharp jab be keeping Phipson in your cot. Be cautious what you're using for jabbing there lads.
Here I be sitting on me chair. Notice I have Giggles the monkey in me cabin. He be a good lad who pours me beer and rum. Alas, the parrot and the monkey don't get along so well. Thee parrot hurls insults, while the monkey hurls.......well.....poo.
Here be an overview shot of me crib.....errrr cabin. Notice me bed is towards the back with me treasure at the foot. This be a great way to avoid scurvy mutineers from sneaking up on ya lad. They usually be tripping on me chair to get to me.......or slipping on Giggles' poop.
This be where all the magic happens. Shiver me timbers, I love to plunder some booty. YARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!
Ohhhh here be some extra shots for ya. Just in case you're so thick in the skull lad, that you can't figure out what we be talkin' about.
I used to have me a rug. But hey, someone pissed on my rug man!! (Obscure Lebowski reference for an extra point. The Dude abides.)
Giggles the poop flinger.
Oh look at me cozy chair.
And a final shot of me bed. I know one of you be wantin' to come rock me boat in me ocean! Wink, wink.......arrrrghhh well not really "wink, wink" lads. With only one eye it's more like wink, blink.
Wait a minute Phipson, I wasn't referring to you ya scurvy dog! Get out of my rack you filthy rat! Go curl up with Giggles and his poop!
Comments: Well it's been a long grueling month. I will be happy when this madness is all over. I really have to thank my team for hanging in there and dealing with the madness. Looking forward to seeing where it all leads us!
all those phipson innuendoes start to get the best of me, as i find it increasingly funny! he s really a legend then, as for your build, well, it had to be close to home for you, i expected the galantly done interior that this is, some specialised maritime props, all expectations are met for me! and more, as the bed is my highlight of this moc, i find that it s very charming! not that i d like to take chris s place in any way! lol! great job heath!
I feel there are a lot of generic accessories here and you could have linked it closer to your personality by being a bit more creative. The build is nice but its just lacking that uniqueness that some of the other builds have had in this category. A very solid 3 points.
