Some MOCs I Like

I’m not sure how it happened, but I now have a huge backlog of MOCs to feature (think it’s due to a huge influx of creations from AFOLs on year-end breaks)…  So many that I can even put them into 3 main classifications – contemporary, historic and mecha/war.  There are a few creations that defy classification tho, and so I decided to clear the backlog by featuring these 1st.

I’ve featured several creations by andybear@hk before, but I think this one tops the others in terms of its massive scale.  Zenko-ji Temple (original is in Nagayo, Japan) is 192×128 studs and will be displayed in Bricks Adventure 2011 (12 to 21 Jan, 2011) in Hong Kong.  You can see more details of Andy’s creation in this EB post.

Btw Bricks Adventure is presented by the War & Adventure Games Society of City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and jointly organized by Legend Bricks.  If you are in Hong Kong during this period, why not go and have a look?  For more details, you can visit Bricks Adventure 2011 official website, Flickr Page or Facebook Page.

Ravel by Nannan Z. is a picture puzzle.  Nannan’s creations tend to have a unique style and this one is really a puzzler (I can’t find a better word, umm, brain not working)… you’ll have to examine the creation in detail if you want to get out of the puzzle.  Clues below the pic.

You are a postman who one day wakes up in a mysterious place. What is going on, is it a dream? You come across a signpost in the road. It reads:

Welcome friend to a place called Ravel,
Should you wish to leave; there’s no need to travel.
Open your mind and believe what you see,
Follow my words carefully and you will be free.

Beware the creature chained to the guillotine,
A close encounter, and death he will bring.
He bears your semblance like a deranged twin,
To get past you must slay him from within.

The weapon you seek is neither sword nor spear,
It is rather small and shaped like a sphere.
But judge not this toxic fruit by its size,
The bones of the Great Beast tell no lies.

Finding the exit is your next task,
There’s no gate or portal, so don’t even ask.
Look to the stars and you will find your way,
They light your path as clear as day.

Point the Northern Star southeast,
To the south you will shine the Star of the Northeast
Point the Eastern Star southwest
And the Southwest Star east. (You’re almost done with your quest!)

The obsidian block marks the compass center,
And where the light beams cross, there you will enter.
Pick up the tools once guarded by the creature,
Now dig dig dig your way to departure!
