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!

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…)
