MOC Madness 2014: Steam Wars Returns Sign Up Deadline Reminder

mocmadnesslogo2014-4 Good evening fellow Bothans. As you may know we have a new marathon building competition under way, and currently we’re two weeks in to the three week “sign up” round. The theme is steam and the specifics are all right in here. If you’re interested in joining the fun you still have time to put together a starfighter for a chance at the polls, prizes, and prestige. The exact deadline for this phase is 11:59pm PST on July 26th. That’s a week plus two hours from the time of this posting. Nine entries so far and countless others in the works, but there’s no limit on the starting field so why not give it a go? I’m looking forward to seeing your steampunk creations!

Announcing MOC Madness 2014: Steam Wars Returns!

mocmadnesslogo2014-4Back in 2008 we ran a contest with a simple challenge: pick a vehicle from Star Wars and remake it in steampunk style. The results were fantastic and it got a lot of attention even beyond the usual Lego fansites, making its way onto Gizmodo, Make, Wired’s Geekdad, and even the blog to name a few. We’ve kicked around the idea in the years since and people have even asked a few times if we would ever bring it back. That time has finally come, and we’re going to take it up a notch this time. Click through for the full details on what the challenge entails, what prizes we have lined up, and how you can enter.

MOC Spotlight: Steampunk Battle of Hoth

Man, we should really run another Steam Wars contest. This phenomenal scene by Flickr member M<0><0>DSWIM hits all the right notes for me. The AT-AT’s are great, but the smaller Snowspeeders and turrets are perfect as well.
