I can’t say I totally understand this moc by builder DOGOD brick Design, but I like it. For one I’m a cat lover, and of course I’m into LEGO. But mostly I think it’s because I get to write the following sentence: Check out Emmet in his mouse mech riding a cat who has a powerful lamp on his head. I’ll likely never assemble that set of words in that order again.
According to builder and LEGO steampunk legend V&A Steamworks, he was overdue for a MOC on Flickr. What a coincidence, we were overdue to feature a build by Guy here on BrickNerd, so it all worked out. Mr. Steam Cat and his mouse partner here look like they're ready for some mischief and adventure, and I'm ready to enjoy the antics.
Late last night my cat Crash went sorta bonkers, like he does. One minute he's resting quietly on my chest, purring softly. Then suddenly he's off, there's a clatter in the bathroom, meow, a mad dash to the closet, meow, streaks across the room to the cat condo, meow, back to the bed, meow. Now normally I'm just thinking "what the hell is wrong with you cat?" But I think next time I'll imagine he's pretending he's this fabulous mech by builder Moko, battling some unseen enemy. That way we're both entertained.
It's one of those things that pops up on Facebook, or is heard over the cubicle, "hey, did you see the one of the cat dressed as a shark riding a Roomba chasing a baby chicken?" It's one of those things that makes you go "what? What did I just hear? What the Frack?" And of course it's one of those things that inevitably comes from Iain Heath. Well, played sir, well played.
