A Jedi Craves Not These Things

Well, maybe Jedi aren’t supposed to crave these things. But, we do! We love adventure and excitement…and, competition, too. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a good podrace, am I right? But, no matter what you’re motivation is – republic credits, freedom from slavery, proving to your friends that you can actually cross the finish line without becoming bug squat – everyone loves a good challenge. And, that brings us to the results of our most recent poll. We asked you,

“Why do you enter contests?”

and you replied,

Prizes! – 212

Fame and glory! – 74

Bored and looking for something to do… – 42

I love a good building challenge! – 144

Some or all of the above – 299

It seemed likely that most people would say they have more than one reason for entering a contest. But, of the specific reasons, the one that got the most votes was “Prizes!” And, there’s certainly nothing wrong with that. I mean, who wouldn’t be willing to bet Jake Lloyd against a shiny new J-type 327 Nubian royal starship, am I right?

And, speaking of bling, I invite you to take a moment and participate in this week’s poll to the right, where we ask you,

“What LEGO Star Wars minifig would you most like to see get a chrome makeover next?”

EDIT: We apologize for the missing poll and links that would normally appear to the right of this page. We are working on the problem, and the sidebar will be restored as soon as possible.
