This is my lame attempt to take on the master that is... Ocean.
About this creation
When I first came up with this hair brained scheme, I knew it was an excercise in futility. My main focus was to have the community get involved in something other than having to click through thousands of Pelican dropships made from 6 pieces and clone commanders "modified" with a sharpie to find something worth looking at. With that being said, I hope you enjoy our attempt at entertainment.
My entry is a series of comic shorts designed for easy, quick reading. so without further ado...
Some Scenes from Star Wars and how they could have... or should have gone.
Three years after the Clone wars the Galactic Empire has quelled almost every upstart faction that has attempted to disrupt the serenity that the Emperor has provided. This one has them a little puzzled...
Officer: General, you wanted an update on the situation. Resistance is minimal sir but I’ve gotta say in all my years as a soldier…
When the local government sent the distress call saying they were being attacked by pirates… This was the last thing that came to mind!
The Pirates say they’ll call off the “pillaging” once they’ve collected all “me booty” which I don’t particularly like the sound of…
It's the end of the month and The Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader, receives a package that he has been waiting a long time for... (Sorry for the "MOD" on this one but I couldn't find another way to make the "graphics" that I wanted.)
Vader: Let’s see who they have this month. Ohh you’re a naughty sith. What are you gonna do with that lightsaber?
Palpatine on holo: LORD VADER!
Vader: Argh! What the hell?
Vader: Uhh, Give me a moment Master.
Palpatine: What were you doing?
Vader: Nothing Master, I was just… uhhh… polishing my helmet?
The Battle of Endor is drawing to a close. Young Jedi Luke Skywalker has defeated his father, Darth Vader, in a vicious lightsaber battle. Skywalker has refused the Emperor's offer to join him and is suffering greatly at the hands of the powerful Sith Lord...
Palpatine: You will pay the price for your lack of vision!
Vader: Master, wait!
Palpatine: You’re not going to try to stop me from killing your son, are you?
Vader: No Master. The little ba$&@#d just cut off my hand! I just thought you should see this month’s electric bill before you continue with that!
Palpatine: Doesn't the government regulate this stuff! Oh, right... OK, Fine. Give me my cane. I’ll just beat him to death then we’ll go get a mocha latte at Spacebucks.
Master Yoda has become one with the Force. Luke Skywalker is feeling lost and has little hope for the future. His former master Obi Wan appears to him to aid the Young Jedi. During their conversation, a great truth is revealed...
Luke: So let me get this straight… Leia is my sister?
Ben: Yes she is. Why do you ask?
Luke: We Probably shouldn’t tell anyone about this...
Luke: No reason! No reason at all! My sister you say…
That's it. That's all I got... As I have stated many times before, Ocean is gonna slaughter me! If you guys liked this don't worry! This is not the last you have seen of the Ocean/Phipson collaboration! We will be back and be more powerful that you can possibly imagine!
VOTING RULES FOR THE GREAT MOC-OFF
You must be logged in for your vote to count
You must vote for both entries (Shannon and Chris)
You must leave a review. Smiley’s are nice as always but the scores are taken from the written review.
In your review (on both mocs) give a score of 1 to 5 (5 being the best) for the quality of the build. Then give a score of 1 to 5 for the quality of the story that goes with the build.
Your scores will then be added up, tallied, (bribes will be handed out during this time) and totaled.
Voting will close on Friday, April 25th at midnight (2400) USA Central standard time and the winner will be declared! The first runner up (who are we kidding) the loser will then be forced to build a moc stating the superiority of the winner! That moc “should” be posted by the following weekend (maybe two weeks depending on time constraints because I... I mean the loser will need time to get it together).
Remember, YOU CONTROL THE ACTION! This contest is NOTHING without your votes! So Get VOTING!
Well, I like the one with Vader, but the Luke and Leah thing was just wrong..... I think for the story you get a 4/5 for creativity, and a 5/5 for the build. The details were great, but the story could have been better.
The little stories are great, I especially like the bed scene and the electric bill! 5/5 for the story.
The quality is great, but Shannon's build is a bit more accurate. So, 4.5/5 for quality.
You should build more funny stories, it's really good!
I like it

4/5 for the build. Good stuff: good simple construction (less is more), but it could use a little more greebling. LOVED the Emperor's chambers, those stairs are the bee's knees. Now for the story... I'll give you another 4/5 there too. Its cute and funny, but its Star Wars funny (which has been overdone -- enough Star Wars spoofs). Overall, great work!
LOL! Indeed you are powerful, as the Emperor has forseen! Very funny stories mate and I like your builds too; I'm not that strict on things like SNOT and stuff-Lego means FUN to me, not RULES. So here is my score: 5/5 story, 4/5 build. Now you may return to your twinkies. (Sorry; couldn't resist.) Thanks for choosing me for a great contest! ;P
Hmmm, its a hard decision, so we'll take the easy route, its a tie (diplomacy and all that stuff). I'll give you the edge on the creation 5/5 to Ocean's 4.9/5, but I give Ocean the edge in the story with a 5/5 to your 4.9/5. Your story was funny and slightly disturbing....but it was very entertaining. Good job.
