Friday Night Fights [Round 5]

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another knuckle-busting edition of Friday Night Fights!    This week’s match-up features royal-rumble of fig-barf, featuring two seasoned fighters with a score to settle.  Without further preamble, let’s go to the tale of the tape.

Fighting out of the red corner, from the city of brotherly love, its Carter “Bone-Crusher” Baldwin and his “Evildoers“.

As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor and determine who will receive a week’s worth of bragging rights.  Simply leave a comment below and vote for the MOC that best suits your individual taste. I will tally up the votes next Friday and declare a winner before announcing the next bout.

Last Week, on Friday Night Fights….

Two towers went to war, leaving one reduced to a smoking pile of rubble.  Canada’s  Tim “The Sheriff” Schwalfenberg and his “Watchtower of Orodruin” scored a 7-4 victory over  James “The Zombie” Zhan and his “League Tower“.  Tim records his first win and improves his record to (1-0) while James falls to (0-1).

  1. So much evil goodness, this’ll be a tough one.

    Gotta love the two in the middle of Carter’s, they remind me of the Chatterer Cenobite from Hellraiser. But I also love the Rasta zombie and Voodoo guy in Magma’s lineup.

    I am going with Magma here only because of the appearance of Azog, seems a bit unoriginal in comparison. Plus, Magma’s table looks ready to sacrifice a virgin, if we can find one.

    Magma Guy.

  2. Magma.
    His minifigs had “something more”, most notably the staves. And the altar, although being ovjective, in judging figbarfs, I would call that a dirty trick. And just by coincidence, dirty tricks are the best way to win, especially in an evil fight.

  3. I think I have to throw the rose at Magnus too…that pentagram staff is just too well executed and creepy not to be worth a hurricane of rabbit punches.

  4. Carter’s as ace as it gets with figbarf, but Magma takes this for me. Where better to spill the blood of the innocents than that altar? And Venom-head-guy looks mean as shit, even with his pretty pretty princess jewel.

  5. Both are really cool and full of un-good character. I say Magma Guy if only for the addition of the altar, a small piece of furniture really adds to the atmosphere.

  6. I guess I’m the lone vote so far for Carter. For me, Magma’s pentagram almost pushed it over the top, but I think Carter just edges him out with the groupings of similar figs that offer enough variety to keep them unique.

  7. I enjoy pentagrams as much as the next guy, but I am going to throw in my lot for carter. Better use of color and that evil Cardinal stands out.

    Figbarfs are one of those things that are easy to dismiss but hard to carry out. I’ve had limited success, but the majority of my minifig populace is from the 90s, and they really have gotten better since.

    1. Baldwin and the Evildoers.

      Within Baldwin’s evil team, I see at least two legitimate subunits. Two groups with specific functions, who are affiliated by both weapon and uniform cloths. This is organization, and this is effective.

      I see only one such pocket of consistency in Magmas team. Beyond the alter guards, everybody is an individual.

      Any student of evil knows that nothing beats the potential of a single evil agent. A demon. A twisted servant. A mad scientist. A talk show host… But that advantage is by definition, limited to individual operators.

      The big book of evil answers tells us: “Once you transition from Single Evil Agent Operations to Team Level Evil Agent Operations, then it becomes more important that all involved dress alike. This allows for such basic evil activities as marching, standing to the left and right of a door, holding innocent women by both the left AND right arm, and of course, rocking vending machines without the risk of tipping the machine completely over (a flagrant violation of Evil Safety Codes).

      Translation: A “group of individuals” falls before the organized focused evil of an “evil team.”

      Uniform = Team. Team = Synchronization. Synchronization = Victory. (for evil types). Good types? Different regulations. Whole different game…

      Attack!

  8. “Evildoers” definitely have a “head” over the competition when it comes to actual heads. #1, 5,6 have me searching for my scary Halloween crew on Bricklink.
    However, “evil magicians ” has my vote. I like their continuity and story. They are out to sacrifice someone and I hope it’s me.
