Combat shopping!
About this creation

Category: Into the Arena: You’ve fought your way through the MOCOlympics and it has all come down to this one, final battle for ultimate victory! One-on-one, gladiatorial style combat has existed for as long as humans could compete and place bets. From ancient Roman Gladiators all the way to future hard-suit battles and everything else in between, be it boxing, UFC, or WWE. Show us your take on gladiatorial combat!

Compliance to rules Here’s Ian! and good luck to him.

The very near future……



Good evening consumers! It’s Friday, it’s the purchasing network, it’s live, and it’s Combat Shopping!



Welcome back consumers, I’m Jack Sandblast, here for another round of thrilling violence-packed rampant acquisition, brought to you by those good folks at VatCom extruded food polymers! Remember folks’ Polymer 8-Grey is now available in 2 new flavours – painfully salty or sweet with texture chunks!



With me as always on colour commentary, the hall of famer himself, Chuck ‘Check-out’ Motson! Chuck, it’s a pleasure to have you alongside. Chuck, you’re a big fan of Vatcom aren’t you?

That’s right Jack, back when my jaw was shattered against a stainless steel toilet bowl back in ’38, I lived on Colour 2, flavour 15! Like yoghurt used to be, but synthesised from kelp by robots.




It’s a pleasure to be here tonight folks – What a show we have for you! Believe me, if I hadn’t been forcibly retired with massive cranial damage I would want to be competing tonight!

So before we join our first event of the evening, let’s go to our locker-room lovely Penelope Nguyen for the low-down before the showdown. What’s the news Penny?




Thanks Chuck! Please remember consumers, we break at 9 for mandatory all-network coverage of the execution of a convicted criminal, by order of the Overpresident. Too bad for you law-breaker, you’ll miss our main events!



And tonight’s is a doozy of a showdown. It’s ‘Capture the swag’ with competitors from The Berlin Mall Krieger, Moscow New Capitalist pigs and Los Angeles Rodeo Drivers in all-out bloody mall-based warfare! The rumours are true, there’s been heavy spending on powered armour and someone’s going to get hurt!



Thanks Penny. So don’t change that channel folks, grab your synthohol and a pack of kelp chips, pop a couple of Buzz tabs and we’ll be right back after these important messages.



























































































4th Wall/ notes

What a round. I genuinely was up against it here – illness is no fun although painkillers help. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time after a good run this year! Sorry Ian, I know you’ve been suffering yourself so my sympathies and it’s a great category so I look forward to seeing what you’ve built, but the next time someone asks to change a round to better suit them I would argue against it. It’s not been done before, it shouldn’t have been done this time.

Because of that I have had to cut back on the scope of what was planned, which is a real shame for me - A locker room, adverts for Coronary Storm energy drink and the I-sore electronic device and teasers of other events were the first things dropped. Crowds, lots more mall detail…. Wish I could have had a few of those nights back, but I do love it and I’m very proud of what I did in the time I had and the condition is was in!

This build is inspired by the Running man, Black Friday sales, Feng Shui by Atlas Games, Professional wrestling, Robocop, The Comic ‘Dragon’s Claws’, Japanese game shows, corporate sponsorship and product placement, the rise in popularity of reality TV and combat sports and the kind of world we live in where a Chinese teenager apparently sold an internal organ to buy an ipad2?

I’d like to thank Chris as always and his judges for all their hard work, plus providing prizes out of their own pockets – thank you all for improving our community.

Thanks to all the entrants for showing up and throwing down. It’s great to see somebody say “I never would have thought to build that but it was lots of fun” because of a category they were given.

Thanks to my friends at DTL for their encouragement and suggestions and putting up with the noisy nerd and his obsession.

Thanks to my buddies Matt and Raff for constant support and in Matt’s case, more than just substantial photographic guidance for this last round – without his help and that of the lovely Limmy too, I would have struggled to post anything.

Thanks to my kids for thinking Daddy can win this and telling me so. It makes me feel 10 feet tall.

Thank you most of all to the lovely Caroline, for being my sounding board and the nearest thing I have to a conscience, for kicking me when I need it and calling the ambulance when I need that.


Thanks for looking and happy holidays to you and your families.

Yours,

The Delatron

Here, have another like (you more than deserve it). Well done on battling through to the final again and this time, claiming victory in spite of illness! Great job and - much as I like Ian and his building style - good to see a Brit win for the second year running. Now, go and have a relaxed Christmas with your family...

Dennis has contacted us and said that he is sick with the flu and unable to comment at this time. He did however ask one of us to comment with his vote. I'm sure once he's able he'll comment with some insight. His vote is for Stu/Delatron. Ian, congratulations on one heck of a final match! And congratulations Stu on your victory and being crowned the 2014 MocOlympics Grand Champion! And on a personal note... man, this contest is even putting the judges down for the count! Score! Thank you all! ~ Chris.

Excellent work Stu, definitely a worthy entry, superb one for being sick (Hope you are feeling better!). All the little details you added throughout the MOC are great!

Quoting Tyler Halliwell Both of you put out great creations this round. Ian's build showed off a great amount of cleverness, where your build went for detail and storytelling. In the end, I am giving you my vote. I feel that your level of detail, form the individual shops to the characters to the story were very representative of the category, and to me deserve the win. Great work from both of you, and I'm glad you both survived the games.
Many thanks to you Tyler.

Quoting Mark McPeek First of, all I can say is wow, just wow. Both of you did full justice to the category and produced spectacular entries - while ill, no less! Truly, you guys are real "iron builders". And such fantastic ideas! I wish I could vote for both of you, but since I have to choose, my vote goes to Ian. This was a very difficult decision. Stu: I love what you managed to capture and all the amazing (and very funny) details on your entry. However, the sheer brilliance of Ian's illusion won me over. Regardless of who wins, I want to congratulate both of you on your accomplishments this year and thank you for your hard work, dedication, and display of sportsmanship throughout these games. It's been a pleasure and an honour. Now, take a break and recover. You both need it! :)
Thanks Mark, and yes, I need a break now!

Quoting matt rowntRee One of the true joys of Christmas is to head down to the local mall and witness humanity at it's worst. Your social commentary speaks volumes and couldn't be any more timelier. The scale in which you've executed this emphasizes it even better. I love the fact that it is rather sterile and spotless, even with the Hammer Piggy-Hai rearranging the guard rail. It still looks like a spotless mall even down to the reflective tile floor, perfectly shimmering for all to step on. The details are endless and hilarious (C3PO Monroe?) I keep coming back to this and see a little bit more, like a great movie or book. I do see some compromise here as well. I think you sacrificed a bit of classic Stu storytelling in order to present a single moment in a modern gladiatorial battle. In that respect, I see this the same as I see Ian's, as a good start to something of a magnificent series of builds. I also see the figs as a little static, not as bloody as I would have preferred for the yuletide spirit. That said, you do get my vote for the sheer comic blast of demented humor.
Cheers Matt. Yes, there was more story written then excised when time ran short. The adverts are a big miss for me for the humour (Rackham, Bonney and Teech collection agency) and the locker room would have helped to sell this as a more complete arena and had the reporter there too.

Quoting David Alexander Smith And this is what you achieved when ill - stunned face. This is amazing, critique and humour in perfect balance. Loads of cool little details to keep you entertained. Great! Good Luck.
Cheers David - yep, Kidney stones seems to be the diagnosis (going to my doc's tomorrow to get test results) and I can vouch for how painful they are and how little fun they have been :(

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus I like the social criticism a lot, but the quality of the presentation and figure placement was below your usual.
It's not often I do this, but..... I do agree with you Deus. Photography of something so big was a real challenge and it simply won't fit inside my light tent so I had to rig up the hanging sheets. That inevitably made it harder for the build to pop (I think it looks great in real life) because it doesn't look so clean and tidy. Given a bit more time I would have tweaked the figures, done some injuries and blood, etc. C'est la vie. Thanks for the feedback.

Quoting Nick Barrett It's Black Friday all over again... You've both battled on and produced superb entries, and as often happens between two talented builders, the results are so different it becomes hard to choose between them, but choose I must... There's a lot of detail and character here, but for me the perfect execution of a brilliant idea wins Ian my vote. It's 1:1 all to play for! Good luck with the other judges.
Thanks Nick, I agree, Ian's build and mine are quite distinct and I'm glad I'm not trying to compare!

Quoting Chris Phipson taking shopping to a combat sport! And while I would have liked a little "play by play" commentary throughout the post, the concept and delivery was perfection! ~ Chris.
Thanks Chris. I know, play-by-play, injuries and gore, fans with signs (you know what I'm talking about!)and lots of other bits too - lots of the characters had names while I was putting them together - but it all got shoved to one side to get this done to a point where I could post and be content with what I did, if not fully happy. At 8pm on Sunday I was still tiling the baseplates!

Quoting Stuart Lucas I took one look at the first paragraph and thought 'Aha! Black Friday!' This is certainly worryingly close to reality. Illness or not, this is full of your trademark wit and attention to detail. Great effort and whichever way the last judgment goes, I hope you & your family have a great Christmas!
Cheers Stu, and to you and yours mate!

Quoting Pico van Grootveld Nice take on the subject! This setting has a bit of dystopian feel to it, hunger games-ish. Though it's not unthinkable it might just be aired next season irl.. Love all the details you've been able to put into the mall and all the different characters. Wonderful build man
Thanks Pico, yeah Dystopia seems to play a big part in my inspirations and often in my builds. The kid in me wants the jetpack in the future, but the adult in me knows we are more likely to be seeing pollution suits and mass poverty instead :(

Quoting Ian Spacek Especially considering how little time you said you had, I have to say...I'm darned impressed! This baby must be 3x larger than my entry, not to mention it's packed with fun details! Wowzers, quite the showing sir. I'm scared to know what you would've produced given more time! This'll be an interesting fight. One thing though, while I completely understand your frustration with the dates alteration (considering all the unforeseen hardship you've been undergoing), it's not the first time the deadline's changed. In 2012 the finalists were also given two weeks (that's what made me think it'd be okay to request). Anyhow, cheers for now! So glad to finally be done. And I'm sure you are too! :)
Cheers for the kind words Ian and yes, I am glad to be finally done and so is my wife! Sorry, yes I am frustrated with how things turned out but that isn't any reflection on you - the point about 2012 is valid although neither competitor requested the 2 week deadline for themselves if I remember correctly, it was offered by Chris. I am frustrated because I know with a full run of 10 days without crippling pain in my kidneys I could have posted something nearer to my vision for this round rather than the abbreviated, less detailed version I put in. I try not to make excuses and just wish it had not come in the round where I needed to show my best based on the quality of the opposition. Thanks for a proper scrap!

Really? Dude, where did you even come up with that? I agree with one of the comments below that I can see this becoming a trend here with people trying out their own. Now I know I am far from being "without sin" but it looks like I'll be the one to cast the "first stone" here. My vote has to go with Stu. While I LOVE the originality of the illusion build Ian, Stu just won me over with all the little details throughout the mall. Great round guys and this one can go either way. Good luck to you both with the rest of the judges! ~ Chris.
