Working for a demolition company, Joe Vig takes his lunch break in the wrong place at the wrong time. Look out, Joe!

Aaahh....Joe. The most unaware person in the universe. or, at least the lego bin.

Great vig...but I would suggest adding a bit more to the bottom floor...using upwards space is great, but it doesn't help too much in this one...just because nothing is on the bottom!

Ah well. Great Vig! I gotta go make one...

You're absolutely right, but it is an empty building. :wink: That said, there's no reason an empty building in the process of being demolished couldn't have more junk lying around.

Excellent! I was wondering when you'd get around to it.

Anyway, cool vig! I don't really mind the emptiness of the bottom floor, as the explosives illustrate the point perfectly. Enjoy your chocolate bar, Joe. :twisted:

This is a great laugh - right when I think Joe cannot possibly innocently meet danger in any other ways...

I like those girders a lot... from what set are they from? Great idea - even greater vig. :)

:lol: This is a great 'Joe Vig' vignette, Dunechaser! I really like the use of the dynamite tiles.

Hope to see more Joe Vig vignettes from you soon!

Great idea. I've been having a bit of a Joe idea block lately. Its nice to see other people with good ideas. Nice use of those stupid one piece column things too.

I'd use a separate rubber band for each tile though.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

The ones in the front are this piece, which I got from 1381 Vampire's Crypt. The ones in the back are this piece, one of which is also from 1381 and the other is from 7146 TIE Fighter.

Athos, good point on the rubber bands. I realized when I was building it that the little yellow ones would be perfect, but I couldn't find any. :lol:

And azrael and fuzzy, what's with your animosity toward Joe? He's beloved by all! :D

Humorous vigs are my favorite! This one's up there.

Excellent vig there! I like the lit fuses on the dynamite a lot and the "empty" floor below is fine. If you didn't raise this up, it would hard to tell that this was supposed to be a big building being demolished. Keep it up!
