For the round one category of "Design the "MocOlympics Logo." So many directions to go! In the end I chose to use all the olympics rings colors and pick a lego theme to accompany each.
About this creation

"Design the MocOlympics Logo"
Your task is to design the thumbnail picture for this year's MocOlympics! It can be anything you want as long as when you look at it, it makes you "feel" MocOlympics! Is that a banner? A flag? Some kind of symbol? Whatever you can think of that screams MOs! And keep in mind, the highest scoring player will have their design used as the thumbnail for the group!

Another shot of the overall build:



For the olympics rings colors here's how it's broken down if you couldn't tell:
Blue: water/pirate
Yellow: sand/islanders
Black: letters/knights/spy
Green: grass/octan
Red: space/mtron/blacktron/spyrius

Left Side:


Back:


Inside a block letter:


Space lego!!

WIP 2:


*******

In the end, even though the category was tough and I think other more visually simple ideas will likely grab the actual thumbnail, I'm really happy with how this came out. It was loads of fun thinking of which theme and type of terrain fit with each color and then integrating them/flowing it all together was great. Hope you enjoy!

Quoting Oran Cruzen Wow! Lots of great details you have put into this build. Excellent IMHO! Ok, so I am a week or so late but at least I did not wait a year or two to comment?
Haha, thanks Oran, I appreciate the nice comment anytime!

Quoting matt rowntRee Those black letters are pure money! I feel that the window dressing is actually taking away from the letters. I love all that is going on and the color blocking you did, but the M O are just too cool of a design statement to place in the background. Fonts are really difficult to get right to convey anything and they are taken for granted when they do. I would have loved to see more of them here because they are spot on perfect. Fun, whimsical, unique, simple, readable, and full of character. The other stuff just makes the thumbnail a bit cluttered in the end. Fantastic build though. Yahtzee!
Thanks Matt, I'm really glad you liked the centerpiece letters so much! And thanks for the constructive comments, I totally see what you mean.

Quoting Vladimir van Hoek Yeah it is big, bold and black! Very well done, but for the legibility on thumb size. A familiar issue; fools never differ :P

Quoting Nick Barrett Maybe a lot going on for a thumbnail, but it's beautifully built; especially your big MO. Good luck!
Thanks Nick, I definitely hear ya, I liked the idea enough to go after it but it may not make the best pic!

Quoting Justin Li I think this is one of the best "theme mashup" sort of entries for this category. Everything blends super seamlessly. Good luck!

Quoting Magma ! Nice one. I would have liked to see a photo taken directly of the front of the letters, for the actual logo picture, but nevertheless, excellent entry. Good luck!
Thanks magma! And fair point, I did have a pic from that angle and though the letters were nice and big, the background seemed a bit flat... hard to choose for sure!

Quoting VAkkron That's a very thorough creation, which I appreciate. Even as a logo it looks pretty good, though a little more space between the letters would have helped to distinguish the black shapes. Good entry!
Appreciate it vakkron! Good thinking on the spacing, wish I could change it now!
