[MOC]: ACE, "The Chemical Place"

Recommended Posts

ACE, "The Chemical Place" 

This was a simple build I created for Rebrick's Best of Batman contest, for the location category. This is my second entry into the contest; my first being the Catmobile. In typical Lego Movie Batman fashion, the un-mopped catwalk is the Red Hood's undoing as he soon finds he's transformed from simple crook into the clown prince of crime himself, the Joker!

The build features the infamous origin of the Joker, as based loosely on The Killing Joke

While the front of the build features the memorable open vats of toxic chemicals, a prime example of good safety standards, the exterior features not only a representation of the ACE building itself but also a focus on the result of the Red Hood's slip on the catwalk--his transformation into the Joker.

To achieve Joker's reflection in the water, I layered Lego foam mirror pieces from the Modular Line.

The mirror under trans pieces acting as water relection is honestly a revolutionary idea.

Sick build man! :)

This is really, really excellent! I love the use of the green pieces to represent the chemicals and how you have included little details like a mop!

Good job!

"simple build?" Do I even want to know what qualifies as a complex build? Builds like this are why I told my sons I probably won't win.

Whoa totally awesome build, so much details. Really like the chemical tanks and the green you used for the toxic chems. The mirror foam was an amazing idea.

I have always admired your awesome mocs cap, but this is truly amazing. Best of luck in the contest.

Hey @Captain Nemo,

very nice build and MOC - really love it. So well done - love the detailed realization of the industrial style and esp. the "simple" but perfect representation of some propably heavily toxic chemistry in those tanks, not to forget the nice "overflow" on the back side.

Cheers,

Cris
