Hello everyone, here is my entry in the Category 4 of the SoF contest...
"Emma' slaughterhouse or the miracles of food industry".

Warning - as the title might suggests this vignette is not the typical "Friends" style of build. People who know me are certainly aware that my style of builds is more on the noir and macabre side of things. I didn't build this to offend anyone... it's just dark humor.
Anyway, you've been warned...

Spoiler

I have included an engraved tile with my name, I prefer doing that than adding a watermark but I'm not too sure if this is allowed or not. If needed I can post a different picture without it.

LOL...Very well done.  A little demented, but very creative nonetheless.  :thumbup:

I like it! It's one of those weird ideas that I'd never think of on my own, but you executed it flawlessly. I appreciate dark humor, and you hid it nicely under the spoiler tag for those who wandered in. Good job, Yatkuu!

Mmmmm...Stephanie makes the best kitty-burgers in all of Heartlake!  :devil:

Humour aside, it's built very well. :thumbup: Lots and lots of details packed into a vignette. Great work!

Best of luck in the contest, Yatkuu!

This is a great little MOC with a little humor in it too. The chicken with the chicken leg is used brilliantly.  :thumbup: :classic:

The view is that because it's not part of the build, and acts as a kind of watermark, it's fine. :thumbup:

Thank you all for the great feedbacks!

Where did you get the engraved tile?
I got these made at a local LUG event in Belgium. One of the sellers had an engraving machine hooked up to a computer. Unfortunately he only does it during some events. I now have a collection of 1x2 in different colors... Handy to sign MOCs
I believe some LEGO shops also do engraving (I saw one in Koln) but it's only on 2x4 bricks if I'm not mistaken.

Great Idea!!
Only the chicken legs are almost as big as the whole chicken! :tongue:
And sausages might have been a nice addition (supposing you had some)

I didn't know about this show I'm afraid. I looked it up and it seems a bit demented so yes, you're probably right, this scene might fit theme!

The saccharine sweetness of Friends needs to be undermined and this does it brilliantly  :wink: . Everything looks beautifully positioned in this scene, the MOC seems stripped down to just the right amount of detail and the cat is hilarious.  :thumbup:

Now I want my own signature tile too.
