Friday Night Fights [Round 21]

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another camel-clutch edition of Friday Night Fights! This week’s bout is all about the ladies, with the Intercontinental Tag Team Championship belt on the line as well as the eternal love of constant reader Pascal.  Without further preamble, let’s go to the tale of the tape.

Fighting out of the red corner, from way down in Goblin Town, it’s the always dangerous “Lightning bolt” LegoWyrm and his “Ladybug & Chat Noir

And fighting out of the blue corner, from his Jovian orbital platform, it’s “Madman” Moko and his Love Laika.

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 model 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….

It was the battle of the Bat-Cave, as dueling Batmobiles fought for supremacy of Gotham’s highways and byways.  In the end, Mike “Psycho” Psiaki and his “Batmobile“ scored a tight 8-5 victory over Nathan “The Punisher” Proudlove and his “Arkham Knight Batmobile“.  Mr. Psiaki records his first win and improves his record to (1-0) while Mr. Proudlove falls to (0-1).

  1. I have to go with Moko on this one. The bodies on his figures have some actual shape to them and their faces have more subtle detailing, especially in the eyes, where it matters most. The T-rex arms on Moko’s figures bother me a little though — it seems like they should be longer and thicker.

  2. Being a chibi battle, I’m betting this match-up ends in a headlock… assuming one of them can actually reach around to make the move…

    My vote goes to the Red corner, managed by the wyrm-meister. They may be smaller, but they’ve got all the moves and the poseability to pull them off. Momo’s duo have the pretty faces, but beyond those piercing eyes, the rest seems a little unpolished. Not sure that I like the tiered-hair approach in the front. Maybe just one vs. two? Dunno. Definitely curious to hear Pascal’s take…

  3. Moko’s technique is more refined, which is no wonder since I’m pretty sure he’s been doing figure builds for a couple years longer than LegoWyrm. However for some reason the proportions on Moko’s figures put me off, I think it might be the very square looking torsos. Both have nice posing but LegoWyrm’s scene seems a bit more full of life. Also, his figures give a strong impression of actually looking at each other which is certainly a very nice touch.

    So my vote goes to LegoWyrm by a small margin.

    As a side note, it must have taken quite some doing to find two builders with “two cute figures holding hands” MOCs.

  4. Not much of a fan of the style, going with Moko though. The level of detail is superior, particularly in the faces. I prefer LW’s hair approach though.

  5. Mmmmmmoko for me! Not digging the arms, but I love everything else. The eyes and hair seem clearly leveled up from LM’s constructions, and Moko’s bodies are all shaping vs LM’s admirable-but-utilitarian clip/bar functionality. They’re both great, though.

  6. I can’t figure out which eye to gouge out first. I want to break things when I see cute stuff like this. I’ll have to come back after I’ve had a few more beers, get my Irish up and vote for the one I hate the least.

    Okay, powered through a Corona, good to go. I’m voting for LegoWyrm because the Arc de Triomphe there reminds me of Spinal Tap. That’s it.

  7. Yeah. Moko. The use of those 1×1 transparent bricks is pretty spectacular. And curves galor! That in and of itself deserves my vote

  8. Hmm…it’s definitely a close call for me. LegoWyrm’s figures are brilliantly constructed and pose-able for the scale they’re in, while Moko’s carry a lot more detail and ‘chibi-ness’.

    So, in the end, I reckon Moko takes it. Those eyes and eyelashes (eyebrows?) are what does it, I reckon.

  9. I’m surprised it’s this close of a battle. When I first glanced at the figures, I leaned heavily towards Moko, since it has nicer colors and more expression (and a better camera angle?) . But after further viewing, Moko’s camera angle only shows more hair (boring), and LW’s build really doesn’t do anything wrong that Moko’s does right. They are very, very similar besides color palate and theme. After going back and forth between the two, I settled on a final decision-maker. Both builds have excellent angles for each limb, but Moko entirely (and realistically) hides the limbs. Not sure how, but it’s great. Moko gets my vote.
