Heads up all you comic fans: we’re now past the halfway point in our latest contest. In case you missed the announcement you can see the full rules right here, then once you’re ready to enter just stop by this thread to submit your model. The deadline is 11:59pm June 2nd (PST) – that’s two weeks away. We’ve already seen some really creative entries but there’s still plenty of time to join in and show us what you can come up with.

PCHLUG 101 Challenge – “Podracing!”

PCH_101_podracing
The boys over at The Pacific Coast Highway LEGO User Group are running a new contest with their trademark twist: in 101 parts or less, build a podracer. Prizes will be awarded for three categories: funny, faithful, and fanciful. Head on over to check out the full rules. It’s open to anyone, not just PCHLUG members, and the prizes on the line are the new mini pod sets. Contest is open all February… the same time frame as our own Podracer contest by no coincidence.

Contest Reminder: Two Weeks To Go!


After midnight tonight you will have less than two weeks remaining to finish building and submit your bounty hunter + ship for our  MOC Madness 2011 Tournament. The entries have been pouring in and I suspect some real heavy hitters are waiting until the final stretch to reveal their models.

To repeat my note from the halfway point post: the cutoff time for submissions is midnight on the 31st (Pacific time) but please do not wait until the last minute to enter! Especially if this is your first time entering a contest and posting on the forum. If there is a problem with your entry or the post itself you will have no time to fix it and you could miss out on the contest as a result. No one wants that to happen, so if you need any help at all feel free to ask in the forum thread or contact me via the private message feature.

Contest Reminder: Halfway There!

It’s now October which means we’re past the half way point in the building phase of our MOC Madness 2011 Tournament. We already have some very cool entries and I know loads more are in the works thanks to the two month window. Remember that the cutoff time for submissions is midnight on the 31st (Pacific time) but please do not wait until the last minute to enter! Especially if this is your first time entering a contest and posting on the forum. If there is a problem with your entry or the post itself you will have no time to fix it and you could miss out on the contest as a result. No one wants that to happen, so if you need any help at all feel free to ask in the forum thread or contact me via the private message feature.

If this is your first time hearing about the contest, worry not, you still have four weeks to build and submit your bounty hunter + ship to compete in the tournament, so get to work and good luck everyone!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, get your bricks ready because it’s time for for the second annual FBTB MOC Madness Building Tournament! Last year we kicked off a big contest with a simple task and it was such a success that we’ve decided to revive it this year with a few minor changes. The challenge remains the same: Build a new original bounty hunter and a ship for them to pilot. But this time we’re opening up the restrictions a bit, and we have some great prizes lined up so check out the forum post for the full details!  (more…)

I want to thank all the participants for their fantastic ships and the forum members who voted. There were so many great submissions that even having five votes to spread around was tough. Congratulations to everyone.

That’s either some secret Imperial code or the spread of Alphabet Fighters built for the contest, ordered by submission date. Possibly both. Incredible turnout for this challenge – piles of great entries and some real creativity everywhere – now is the time to pick your favorites so head to the forum and cast your vote!

Alphabet Fighter Contest Entries

This contest brought to you by every letter but N, because not a single member decided to build an N-wing fighter. Sure, you could knock one of the three Z-wings on their nose and call it a day, but that’s just adding insult to injury. The most popular choice among builders was E, with eight total variants, better than ten percent of the pool.
