We are not very good at highlighting other fansite or their promotions. I hope this is a step in the right direction:, a Dutch AFOL fansite, is hosting a large Star Wars contest with a variety of categories like Land Vehicles, Air Vehicles, Mini MOCs (sized 16×16 or smaller) and even a category for showing off your collection!

Check out all the details here. You’ve got till December 1st to enter!

PS: I hear they got some awesome judges for the contest ;)

Final Lap

OK Bothans, the race is back on and the competitors are headed out on the track. The ranks are mixed up as they leave the chaotic pit lane, some got hit harder than others… but no one was immune. The more damage dealt, the farther back they start the final lap. Curious how the high and low ends of the rankings were the biggest targets, and that classy iPod Racer ended up as the most loathed by a single vote over the Desert Nomad. Meanwhile the G-pod, Exo Racer and Unspod had the lightest attacks… maybe these sleepers from the center of the pack are going to burst through to the front to take the win!

Here is the voting lineup for the final lap (but NOT the current rankings!):


Make sure you stop by the final lap thread to get your votes in!

First Lap Recap

The race is going strong and the pods just completed the first lap…� Four of the more stylish pods are leading the pack, followed by an unlikely pirate racer that held it’s position while the rest jostled around him. The fierce looking Spearit made the biggest jump in the ranks, up 21 positions (and from the looks of it I’d guess he was ramming entries out of his way). The quad-engine pod made the second biggest advance seen in the first lap – maybe the risky configuration will pay off in the end! Rounding out the top eight is the crazy crossover Sparrow… no word on if Patsy managed to keep up.


Stop by the second lap poll thread in the forum to see the rest of the rankings and cast your votes!

Rock Monster Photo Contest: Winner!

Our Photo Contest challenge the other day was for members to shoot their best impersonation of a Rock Monster. The entries were posted here on the forum, and the judges have deliberated.

Without further adieu:

Meeotch takes the prize!

Even if my stated bias in the contest announcement had been taken out of the equation, the judges unanimously still would have awarded Meeotch the win for his accuracy to the original image and moxie to actually pull it off with such flair. I mean seriously, a tricycle? Well played, you little rock monster, you.
