Round 3
 Group admin 
Welcome to Round 3! Win your next MOC-off and you are through to the final! Hopefully you all know the rules by now, but here are some reminders:

You need to include a link to your opponentís entry and/or homepage to make it easier for us to judge. You do not need to mention their name in the title.

Judging in the knockout rounds is conducted by the judges voting on the best build within each match-up. As soon as you get 3 votes out of 4, you will advance to the next round.

Since our panel contains an even number of judges, a tie is likely. If this is the case, then a tiebreaker judge will be enlisted to decide on a winner.

Once both entries in a match-up are posted, the voting process for that match-up will begin immediately. Therefore, once your entry is added to the group, it is set in stone.

If your opponent fails to post in time or gets disqualified for any reason, you advance by default.

Categories (chosen by Justin):

Oliver Becker vs MCLegoboy
Heeeere's Johnny!
Build a scene from a horror movie. Classics are encouraged!

TMNS 5097 vs Ty S.
It's a Trap!
Depict someone or something about to set foot in a trap. The trap has to be intentionally set - no tripping over logs or falling over cliffs. The funnier the better.

The deadline will be next Sunday, August 20 at 11:59 pm server time. Good luck!

Okay, before I go too nuts, I kind of want to know how much horror the judges have seen because I haven't watched too many of the classics, but I've seen a ton that are not remembered often because they are not exactly good, but more cheesy.

I've never seen any of the Saw, Halloween, Friday the 13th, or Nightmare on Elmstreet movies, but there's like 30 or so Stephen King movies and television miniseries.

Also, you've heard of classics and seen clips that they show in best of type scenarios, but do you actually know what happens in the movie?

Because even though judging should be primarily on build, source material and knowledge of that source material also plays a factor and I don't want to build something that is going to not be understood.

Wow. Good categories Justin! I'm glad I didn't get horror movies though, cause I've never seen one and can't see one (Especially at my age) and I couldn't build something I can't look at. :P

I *intentionally* gave them the horror movie category, and the judges insisted that we do it. :P

I see your point. But it is kind of on you too make sure that your entry can be understood by most people.

Ok, this is hard. I do not have the habit of watching any horror material. The other judges seemed to love this category and I thought "how scary could it get in Lego?". If you really manage to scare me, you'll get points for that, I am not very acquainted with source material for this category, so I'll probably be going mostly on what reactions I have to the build itself. Sorry if that's not the answer you were hoping to hear.

Hmm, this is interesting. If you're not sure, it's fine with me to include a YouTube clip or something so even if we haven't seen what you're drawing from, we can still get a sense of context, if a superficial sense. I'm not sure how comfortable the other judges would be watching clips from horror movies though. I know I'm fine with it.

As you may have noticed, I haven't been that active on MOCpages lately as I am out of town and have limited internet. I will cast my votes now.

So I just checked out that live bracket link on the homepage, and I totally forgot about there needing to be a third place. I'm not completely out!

All of these apply!

And before you ask, yes ponies (like, duh), and I have a whole playlist dedicated to things I can just give as quotes. I could use .gifs (pronounced zhaif) but these have sound.

Judges: Should we have a bronze match to decide third or use a tiebreaker like R1 seed or least votes against?

I know I'm not a judge, but I would really enjoy a fight for 3rd place!

I think we could go ahead and give them a chance at building their way to third place. We've got plenty of categories, so that's not a problem and I don't mind judging a match-up for 3rd place.
