Here is my entry

Theme: The Heart of Texas

Minifigure: Mexican

While America was young and Texas was still being formed the cowboys living there often times had to chase or fight the Mexicans out, so that one day, Texas would truly belong to America.

In this scene you can see 2 cowboys (or vacaros) chasing off yet another annoying, singing Mexican.

Here's my Entry for the contest. This is the first contest I've ever participated in so I hope I've done everything correctly.

The minifigures I chose for this interaction are the Pharaoh and the Spaceman in an ancient Egyptian tomb.

Overview:

Tomb Interior:

interior_final.jpg

Closeup of the Spaceman's spaceship:

spaceship_closeup.jpg

Backstory:

Earth was decimated by war by its inhabitants many millennia ago. The ensuing conflict devastated the planet's environment and made it uninhabitable. Some Humans fled into the stars, where they journeyed to a new solar system to start anew. Thousands of years have passed since Earth has been abandoned aside from the occasional bandits who land on the surface looking for anything of value in the wreckage.

Meanwhile, on one of the many planets colonized by the Humans who managed to escape Earth, a spaceman finds a curious map hidden within an artifact that has been passed down in his family for generations. The map marks a location on Earth, a location that supposedly hides a vast riches all for the taking!

With this knowledge in hand, the astronaut leaves on an adventure back to Earth using his small and nimble spaceship. Landing on the surface in the ruins of Ancient Egypt, which has remained largely intact, the spaceman discovers a hidden entrance to the underground tomb using the map. After journeying through catacombs for hours he eventually comes upon a giant chamber containing a hoard of treasure; gold, diamonds, jewels and other valuables are all his for the taking!

However, unbeknownst to the Spaceman, something else is lurking inside the tomb. The Pharaoh has awoken and opened his sarcophagus, and he's not about to let the Spaceman leave with his treasure!

My entry for this category.

Over the last few years her fame faded. Her gigs get smaller and smaller. At last only a couple of people wanted to see her. The last CD she released was a financial disaster. After this she was sure that her career has ended.

But one morning she received a letter. A really old looking one. She opened it and released the almost ancient paper. She read it very carefully. All of it sounded very weird. It was an offer for an exclusive concert, next week, with a payment that would equal the money she earned in her first two successful years. This was truly an offer she can't refuse. The location was a little bit creepy (a long abandoned fair), but who cares. The letter was signed with "Your greatest fan". OK that sounded really creepy. At this moment she noticed another paper. It was a contract. The words "please sign immediately" poped to her eyes. She took a pen and signed. A thought comes to her mind "With this gig it can't get any better", even if it means to hell and (maybe) back.

The stage, with the crowd waiting for the star. One had too much to drink it seems.

stage001.jpg

Why do this guy need a chainsaw?

stage002.jpg

The thin technician climbs the ladder to operate the lights. In the other corner is the crate with some treasure (the payment). Her greatest fan is happy. His star will arrive soon. He holds the contract, looking forward to tell her that he has more plans for her in the future :devil:

The reason I chose clown was because he is my favorite circus figure. Plus he has to listen to ringmaster, otherwize he will get sacked! :laugh:

Time Storm

This is for the Explorer interacting with the Robot.

Project Time Storm

Log Author Dr Xavier Storm

Date Stamp 2157.09.18 23:27 FPT

The Time Storm project is finally operational. For the past three years I have worked with my trusted assistant Robot XF137 to develop a functioning time portal capable of accessing the distant past.

At 0700 hours the power capacitors were charged and the portal activated. I left my assistant to program the time coordinates whilst I changed into something more appropriate.

Unfortunately upon passing through the portal, not only did I discover that I had not arrived in the jungle as intended, I also discovered that the original occupant of the tomb that I had in fact arrived in was not best pleased to see me.

After spending precisely 3.45 seconds in the past, I leapt back through the portal and crash landed into my assistant who was about to follow me through the portal.

Tomorrow I think I’d better program the time coordinates myself …

5000917124_d61e3bfd94.jpg

The Explorer minifig fits into the space in the portal facing the Robot minifig.

For stability, the Explorer minifig also holds onto the binoculars.

These are the only three photos I've taken without the Explorer, as required by the rules of the contest.

However, you can check out the complete set on Flickr if you are interested in seeing the vignette with the Explorer included: Time Storm on Flickr

My entry is for the karate master.

The karate master has escaped to the top of a hill where there's an ancient and abandoned japanese shrine so that he can practice in peace, away from his crazy fans. Meanwhile, his arch rival, tired of being second, has hired a ninja assassin to kill him. The ninja is quietly making his way to the top of the hill, but has the karate master already sensed his presence?

The karate master is standing in front of the shrine, and is in the process of chopping a plank in two.

Riding Giants

This is an entry for the Surfer and the Diver .

The endless search for the perfect wave has led the surfer to this epic break. He enlists the services of the diver to capture the event. The stage is set, the diver presses record, the massive wave breaks and the surfer drops in to the barrel. However, something lurks in the deep, the reef this wave breaks over is a haven for sharks. Just as the surfer catches the ride of his life, a great white bursts from the wave in an attempt to eat him.

Hope you enjoy it,

here is a link to a few more photos. My inspiration for this came from the picture of laird hamilton riding teahupoo which is one of the most iconic shots in the world of surfing. Laird riding this wave has been described as the most significant ride in surfing history (

). When i built the wave though, it needed a bit more so i added a shark attack! Edited by squiz

Ignorance is not bliss...

This is an entry for the Spaceman and the Roman soldier

Spaceman Hartnell loved history. He had always studied the most ancient cultures of his species' history- the Romans in particular. Unfortunately, in the far future, history has been a bit...erm... edited in such a way that things like violence are omitted or poorly underwritten.

Essentialy, censorship infected our learning.

But moving on, our brave adventurer had been from galaxy to galaxy looking for the perfect wormhole to bring him to his favourite period in history to meet the mighty Roman Empire, unaware of what he was getting himself into.

He succeeded.

Upon arriving, he presented his weapon to the first fellow he saw and placed on the ground to show that he wasn't a threat. The figure in shining bloodied armor just stared at him in alarm and then raised his spear and attacked. The spaceman, of course, ran in the opposite direction, noticing only too late that the wormhole had brought him into the middle of a gladiatorial arena where the emperor was enjoying the life and death struggles on the field below.

The Soldier, as it turned out, was condemned to die in the arena for being too well-groomed and making the other soldiers feel bad. Self-esteem, as you well know, is important to a military.

So here we are, with a strange man appearing in the worst of places being pursued by a Roman soldier for the delight of the indifferent Emperor.

Run, Spaceman, Run!

The emperor sits in his seat oblivious to the sudden arrival of a future man

phphze2qqpm.jpg

And here we have a full view

For my gallery with larger versions of these pics go Here(it might not be public yet, but be patient :).

My idea for this was to have the future interact with the past, but in a way that is just a bit ridiculous. The emperor was made from what I had in my minifig parts bin, which is unfortunately, not much. The head was the closest I could get to having the leaf crown while remaining purist.

I do hope you take the time to read the story, and I hope you all enjoy this :)

The long wait

Minifig from series 1: Nurse

Imaginary Minifig from series 2: Vampire

A nurse was struggling for her freedom - she was hung from the top of the roof. Captured by a bloodthirsty creature and locked tightly by the handcuffs, there is not even a single chance that she would escape from her certain fate. Yet she would not meet her maker immediately - it would have appeared that the foul creature was watching her terrified expressions as some sort of entertainment. It is going to be a long time before the final moments.

Driven by fear and desperation, yet with nothing to turn to for help, all she could do is to imagine the creature was no longer there. That brought her some momentary peace and relief, even deep inside she knew her fate would be similar to something she was trained to do. Her blood would be drawn out by the nasty fangs, not unlike the syringe she had so often used on patients. At this very moment, at least enjoy the hallucination that it wasn't there and soon enough she will be relieved from the nightmare...

Collectible figure from r1: Clown

Collectible figure from r2 (not included): Ringmaster

During the last week of the traveling circus, the ringmaster finally blew his top. The clown's annoying antics, continuous honking, and stupid behavior drove him insane.

Ever wonder why the ringmaster figure included a whip? Now you know. :grin:

The ringmaster would be chasing behind with his whip... :devil:

Thanks for viewing :classic:

The location is inspired by the Boardwalk resort in Disney World - A great excuse to use all my Primary colours in a City setting.

I had fun making this, and spent quite a bit of time deciding which characters to choose. In fact I'm not sure Crystal dream man may not turn out to be Wayne the Weightlifter!
