2015 Mocathlon: The Far Side Missile
This is my seventh entry for the 2015 Mocathlon. I had to recreate one of the Far Side's cartoons. Enjoy!
About this creation
Far-Side: Recreate one of Gary Larson's timeless cartoons in LEGO! Choose a specific one. You can keep it authentic to the original or change the context. Bummer of a birthmark in classic space?
I chose to make the comic, Missile.

Hope that you like it!

Quoting Max Pointner 3 points. The characters are very accurate, but overall the build seems a bit ambiguous.
Thank you so much Max! Your opinion is really helpful!

Quoting Mark McPeek Overall, this was a very strong build - really close to a four. What prevented me from bumping your score up was just a few nitpicky details. The couple studs behind the blackboard hurt the presentation a tad. The missile didn't quite look like the one in the reference picture and your setup didn't quite match the aforementioned picture. Just a few details that, well not critical, would've helped your score.
Okay, this was very helpful. Thank you Mark!

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Nice one, although I couldn't get the link to the original cartoon to work. The missile is pretty cool, but the muppety look of those scientists is awesome! Very Larson!
Thank you very much! I'm glad that you like it!

Quoting Mark McPeek The pitchfork apocalypse is alive and well! Quite accurate to the source. A couple touches here and there would've bumped your score up a bit. Very nice work! Score: 3.
Thank you Mark! Do you think that you could tell me where it could be improved?

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Nicely done, but I think that the poses could have been done in a way that makes the joke more evident. As it is it kind of looks like the scientist in the back is putting his arm on the other's shoulder. As such, I'm going to go with a high 3.
Thanks Luke! Yeah, I agree with you on the posing. Its something I'll have to work on for sure!
