you can use a few elements in a different color. but too much of an accent color, the voters might deem it not batmobiley or greenlanternmobiley enough.


Yeah, I'm hoping people aren't TOO perfectionist on that score. Because while there might well exist green wheels (I honestly don't know) I am quite certain I don't have any...

I look at it this way:
If it's a projection of his ring, it SHOULD be all green. So maybe he projected a vehicle on four tires he found in his garage.
If it's a car built for him (for picking up chicks, or a charity race against Bats) then it could easily have some black & white ACCENTS just like his costume.

Oh snap! I wish I can enter both categories! Unfortunately, I can only enter one due to my lack of greed and dark green parts.

Join the club of non greeners... Its easier to head toward ol' Bats. Although I dont think Green really drives such iconic cars like Bats, I think Bats entries will be awesome... Heres hoping I can enter this.

The more I consider this, the less I feel I'll even be inclined to enter. I really don't have much interest in entering a Batmobile, and I don't think I've got the parts for a GL-mobile (which is a shame, as I REALLY want that fig, especially given that LEGO isn't putting out any GL sets in the first wave).

I do look forward to seeing what those folks that DO have a bunch of varied green parts (especially trans. green) have to offer. I love Green Lantern!

While cleaning up from the last contest, I figured, why not, I've got pieces everywhere:

A Batmobile:

Just for clarification, we don't have to have a minifig piloting. I mean, I know with Green Lantern, unless you are lucky, you can't, but what about a Batmobile?

you don't have to have a minifig piloting. it just needs to have space for one.

Seriously though. NOT. One. Piece.



So no wood paneling either then? XD

Cas, I hope there are two wheels under there in the back and not just one...

Yep, there are two wheels in the back and each touch the ground and freely spin.

I made my first Bricklink order (or orders, as I got 2) today for this contest. I hope everyone's turns out well! (Of course, I selfishly hope mine turns out the best XD )

I'm too cheap to make Bricklink orders for a contest where said orders would probably cost me more than simply buying the prize directly. Sigh.

Aw c'mon Mister Ed. I' gonna start calling you Eeyore ;)

Build your GL mobile, what have you got to lose? I know for a fact my green inventory in minimal, but I'm going to give it a go even if he ends up on a lawn tractor.

Well, Eeyore IS my favorite A.A. Milne character. :lol:

Eh, I may try something. I haven't actually taken stock of my green parts. Of course, I will need to find some time. I've been working a LOT of hours lately.
