BLUE SCR33N 0F DEATH (Bio-Cup 2022)

My entry for Round One of Bio-Cup 2022, originally wanted to make something inspired by Simon Stalenhag’s work but it morphed into this!

Behind the scenes ‘based’ fridge-posting :stuck_out_tongue:
In hindsight I should have waited until the next day but I misunderstood the due time…next time I’ll learn! And maybe I’ll learn how to remove pesky shadows.

This thing rocks and I think you still hit the Stalenhag nail on the head, morphed or not. I love the use of the spring shocks in the torso; I really enjoy actual mechanical function built into a Technic figure, Bionicle or otherwise. I also noticed the HF head semi-truck; I think that’s a clever little detail. You really amplified the horror of the blue screen of death by having a gigantic vacuum-tube monitor towering over me on the freeway (at least, it feels like I’m there).

10/10!

Glad to hear that, I did try to make it suitably greebled and damaged along with being semi-retro. Guess my original idea was much more ambitious and involved a larger car (sorta forced perspective) with brake lights on, halted by a robot snagged in all these powerlines. But I’m glad it still is close.

Me too! It even has a spine made of the shortest ccbs pieces and can swivel and ab crunch. Although none of that’s seen in the final thing :stuck_out_tongue: But I definitely want to reuse the frame in some Toa build etc.

A lot of people so far have loved the truck! it was a last minute thing too! The back is Jackstone to perhaps appease Judge Melman…If I had more time I would have loved to bathe the scene in blue monitor light!

:star_struck: :100: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: thanks!!!

An HF head as a truck cab?

Brilliant.

The crotch is weird tho.

Yeah it was kinda slapped together…

Ooh this moc is really cool! I quite like all the mechanical details and the truck is pretty neat.
