alright, here's the final word.
now this is sort of a case where the right hand doesn't know what the left hand was doing. And while technically Nick was correct, it wasn't our intention to exclude Maersk, Shell, Nestle, Coke, Deutsch Telecom or any other promotional or limited release licensed sets. Ryan and I were discussing what the scope of the term "licensed" means and what it should include and exclude, so I'm going to revise the rules to the following:
- Your task is to build any non-Star Wars, licensed podracer. Take any of LEGO's official licensed lines past, present and future and build a podracer. Imagine what a Buzz Lightyear Star Command Podracer would look like. Or a Batpodracer. How about a Winnie the Pooh Honey Potracer? You get the idea yet? The only exception to the licensed line rule is, of course, Power Miners. Power Miners podracers will be accepted. No Star Wars podracers; you will be turned away at the gate.
I basically changed the wording a bit and removed the word "themed". Also, we are going to include a list of allowable licenses to remove any doubt. If it's not on the list, it's not allowed. Barring any gross oversights, here is the list of allowable licenses in alphabetical order:
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Dora The Explorer
Pirates of the Caribbean
Prince of Persia
Thomas The Tank Engine
Winnie The Pooh
In addition, I am adding the following two rules:
- Podracer must be in minifigure scale.
- Pilot must be seated in the cockpit pod and visible in at least one of the two photos submitted.
