V&A Steamworks - Guy HImber 1:40am, 12 April 2014
Iron Builder 3.0 - Round 12 - Siercon & Coral VS Legohaulic VS Littlehaulic

Remember way back on April 1st when we played a little prank and said the Team Mayo and the Team Haulic were going to step into the arena? Well guess what? It was really a double-secret-probation SUPER-APRIL FOOL'S joke because today they are REALLY going to duke it out for this round of IRON BUILDER!
( Let loose the pigeons . . . call the newspapers . . . hide your wife and kids ) It's TRUE!

And as an added special bonus we have an official sponsor for this round of IB. The nice folks at LEGO, our favorite toy company, have given us the opportunity to let the MIXELS run wild through the Coliseum!

mixels smaller banner

What is an 'MIXEL' you ask? To be fair, I have no idea.

It's some kind of cartoon or another that has to do with uh... well...I am not quite sure. BUT, more importantly, the MIXELS sets are an AFOL's dream come true! All kinds of killer transitional brackets, cheese slopes, ball and socket connectors and special parts in unique or hard-to-find colors and a fantastic bargain at just $5. PLUS these MIXELS sets are fast becoming the favorite 'go to' sets for build-in-the-bag competitions.
Find out more about MIXELS at www.mixels.com

10 volectros

Due to the generosity of the LEGO team, our seasoned veteran combatants this round are each going to receive (10), count 'em, 10 COMPLETE sets of the Yellow MIXEL who goes by the name 'Volectro'. Within this Volectro set are a TON of great parts to play with - but the Secret Ingredient our builders will fish out of their TEN sets wil l be the 2 x 1 Curved Slope in YELLOW. There will be upwards of 40+ of these 'new for 2014' golden beauties for the two teams to build with.

10 volectros

As an added bonus the teams will have all of the other great parts in the MIXELS set to build with if they choose (including the set's exclusive Bright Light Orange prickly plant part and a big collection of new eye tiles), but keep in mind, the Yellow slope is what our judges will be focusing on.

What can I tell you about our two teams?

Our reigning Super- Mega-Battle-Double-Kaiju-Many-Happy Iron Builders are the daunting and impressive Dynamic Duo of Destruction called 'Siercon and Coral' aka Sean and Steph. They are the nightmare that keeps the co-Chairmen of Iron Builder awake at night. Who can compete with them? Are they even human? When do they sleep? Do they have one of those Harry Potter watch-thingys that lets them freeze time so they can build all that stuff in a month? Who can face their wrath?

We look out at the 100's of 1,000's of AFOLs in the IRON BUILDER Coliseum and are faced with silence. Not a single person is mad enough to don armor, pick up a sword and face these impressively battle-scarred Titans of the Brick.

Until one day .... a quiet voice is heard in the back of the Stadium. A bright faced, yellow haired angel of a girl says "My brother and I would like to try, Sirs."

"And who is your brother, Miss?" the Commissioners ask.

YOUNG LADY "You may have heard of him . . . his name is 'Tyler' . . "

TYLER - "Ummm... Guy, I am standing right over here, stop pretending you can't see me ... "

GUY - "Quiet Tyler! You will ruin the tension and drama of the moment for cryin' out loud!"

NANNAN - "Do you know how much we have spent on confetti and pigeons already?!"

TYLER - "OH, sorry guys, please continue"

GUY - "JEEZ! .... ok, where was I? Why NO young lady who is this brother of yours?"

Young Lady - " You might know him better as ..... LEGOHAULIC!!!"

LEGOHAULIC ( aka TYLER ) "Prepare for trouble and make it DOUBLE!"

SEAN AND STEPH MAYO - "Where did Tyler get that cool 'Team Rocket' costume?!"

LITTLEHAULIC ( aka Young Lady ) - [In a strange voice] "Meowth! That's right!"

TYLER "Ok, hold on, hold on! I never said that!"

GUY "Ahem..... pigeons .. remember?"

LEGOHAULIC [somewhat dejected looking now] "sigh ...prepare trouble double something something ... "

GUY and NANNAN "Allez Brick! Let Super Team Battle '2 x 1 Slope Curved' BEGIN!"

For anyone confused by the "?" beside the seed part, wonder no longer. As an added challenge, Team Haulic and Team S&C will be using the seed part in every build as well as a minimum of one (1) other part from the Volectro Mixels set. You, the spectators, get to play along and find the one (or more) other parts being used in the models. They will be visible and identifiable in the photos. They won't be buried in the model where no one can see them. The parts may differ from build to build while some may stay the same. So keep an eye out! If you see them, point them out.

Team Mayo vs Team Haulic - FINAL RESULTS

Team Mayo vs Team 'Haulic, we knew it was going to be legendary.

To judge such a legendary round we needed some legendary judges.
Our esteemed panel for this latest round of Iron Builder consists of:

Judge #1 Lino, Former Iron Builder Competitor, LUGNUTZ Poobah and manly kilt-wearer.
Judge #2 - Joe Meno - Editor of BrickJournal magazine ( which recently featured the all IRON BUILDER Issue! ).

Judge #3, Iron Builder competitor and co-fighter of one of my favorite rounds of Iron Builder, SlyOw,l aka Barney Main.

Judges, I know you were given a challenging task , and we thank you for taking the time out to deliver this nose-to-nose SPLIT DECISION, Somebody has got a trophy ( or TWO? ) to build!

Thanks again to Kevin Hinkle and the LEGO group for their generous sponsorship of this round of I.B.

And now, on to the results!

======================

Judge #1 - LINO
Before I go into it, let me illustrate how difficult it was to judge the fates of builders whom I deeply admire.

On one hand you have the cutest LEGO couple ever (in your face, Sterlings!) who work as a cohesive team to build some of the most jaw-dropping MOCs on the net and make us all want to puke with their lovey-dovey cuteness.

On the other hand you have the cutest pair of LEGO siblings ever. (in your face, Arvo Bros.!) Together they prove that talent runs deep in that family and give the rest of us something to strive for.

Together it was an epic battle to see which is better: the bonds we are born into, or the bonds that unite us in holy matrimony. Some stand outs for me that have made this judging business difficult include LittleHaulic’s Chameleon and Lovebirds, LegoHaulic’s flawless Star Wars logo and his chainsaw and earmuffs as well as Sean and Steph’s Sun Salamander and their Yellow Brick Road.

LegoHaulic and LittleHaulic, may you never find the 12-step program that’ll rid you of your raging Legohaulism.

Sean and Steph Mayo, may you never find the clinic to cure you of your many talents.

For all of you, don’t go changing cuz, as that old Billy Joel song goes, I love you just the way you are. Guy, on the other hand, you should probably get that looked at. Seriously, dude.

Anyway, here goes:

Sean and Steph Mayo
Building skill: 20/20
Presentation: 20/20
Use of mystery part: 20/20
Total: 60/60

Legohaulic and Little Haulic
Building skill: 20/20
Presentation: 19/20
Use of mystery part: 20/20
Total: 59/60

In my opinion, the Mayos just squeaked out the win as it seems in many cases they were leading while the “haulics followed suit. Still was a tough call to make. Sorry, sweet princess. You too, Michaela.

=======================================

Judge #2 - Joe Meno

Okay, this one is tough, not too unlike judging two diamonds. Both teams are phenomenal builders, so there isn’t going to be a place where one is clearly better than the other. This is going to be a horse race that comes down to the finish.

And I get to judge it. Geez.

I honestly don’t know what to say. The builds were outstanding and touched all sorts of building genres, from life-size to micro. And functions were also included - transforming cars and squirting guns? to have one of these as a model is incredible, but a constant innovation flow? Unbelievable.

What decided the competition for me had to be the presentation, and even that was hard to choose, until I noticed how each team photographed their models. While both took clear photos of their MOCs, one group was consistent in its staging. Legohaulic’s photos showed the MOC, and also told a story. The best example of this is the Suits Me photo - Legohaulic is amazing in this style of character building. Siercon and Coral are just as good in “BECAUSE I’M BATMAN!!” However, Legohaulic and Littlehaulic were more consistent in presenting MOCs as if they were in a story or context as opposed to presenting MOCs in a product shot.

Special mention has to go to Siercon and Coral for the Sun Salamander (this almost turned the competition around). That has got to be one of the best MOCs I have ever seen, and the presentation was perfect! A viewer only has to take a glance and know that the beast is on his treasure, and woe to those who challenge him!

Siercon & Coral
Building skill: 20/20
Presentation: 19.5/20
Use of mystery part: 20/20
Total: 59.5/60

LegoHaulic and LittleHaulic
Building skill: 20/20
Presentation: 20/20

Congrats to both teams for their creativity - Iron Builder will not be the same now, as the game is now changing from "what can you build?" with the mystery art to "what story can you tell?”

Best I could do - this was an insane round!

====================================================

SLY OWL - Barney

My steely resolution in being oblivious to Iron Builders has somehow been penetrated this round; which is credit to all the builders. All four of them... The Haulics broke through most - all the characters with Mixels eyes just pop out in my feed. But then all the new places the presentation has gone - GIFs and videos and so on - also lulled me from my slumber.

Haulics: Two of my favourite styles are life-size and characters; so you buttered my toast most strongly. The Lemonade Stand is great in many, many ways - smooth colour blocks, good expression; and big fan of the writing in fact. Character-wise, Bullseye and Marshmallow Mayhem are superb too. The seed part is understandably rarely the focus, but crops up in appropriate places. Big points for the Lovebirds cage too.

Mayos: Your use of the part was better - clearly a springboard for the rest of the model. The Pacman gif was probably my favourite bit of presentation; the rubber duck my favourite build. Really really nice background on that one - the curtain, the bubbles, the way the floor unobtrusively peters out. I enjoyed the balloon animal too. The sun salamander had a lovely neck... too bad lifejackets weren't the IB part!

But onto scoring (and this didn't come out the way I'd expected!)
