reserved for rule clarifications

Clarifications from page 1: All Star Wars vehicles that have been made by Lego (walkers, speeders, starships, etc - no playsets), from any faction (Republic, CIS, Rebels, Empire, etc - mix and match at will), are allowed as inspiration for your mashup (pick only two though) - but the end result must be a .

Clarifications from page 2: No transition/evolution models where you make a new ship inspired by two others - use recognizable parts from two (and only two) ships and as much scrap as needed to merge them into something that flies. Alternate color schemes are OK. Custom pilots are OK (again official unmodified parts only though). Vehicles from official sets only are allowed for your source pair, alt models do not count as official models and are not allowed.

Clarifications from page 3: For Fett's sake people, official designs are not allowed in your model. For futher explanation and examples, see . Beautifully simplified: "Take 2 ships that have had official models made of them. Ignore the official LEGO models. Make 1 ship using partially recognizable elements of both ships without stealing any design elements from the official models" (care of MisterFubar). Also, you aren't limited to a single pilot.

Clarifications from page 4: Droids (full or partial) are also allowed even if neither of the source ships had one.

Great contest and one I might actually enter if I have the time. I've always been a huge fan of "uglies"

Now let the silly questions about rules and the building begin.

This will be interesting.

To clarify, is this for starfighters, or any ship from the Star Wars universe?

Now, I'm just staff, and a mere writer at that, but my guess would that any set, given the following:

"- You may draw inspiration from any ship or vehicle that LEGO has made into an official set to date, be it canon or expanded universe."

So, go on, make that Republic Gunspeeder Bikeship* or whatever other crazy combination you can mash up.

Okay, here's a (probably stupid) question: can we combine sides? IE: Alliance vehicle with Empire, CIS with Republic? I'm guessing we can, but I thought I'd ask before I start building.

Thanks! Okay here's another (probaby stupid) question: the rules say starfighter/vehicle, but is there a size restriction? I understand the Death Star comment, but, say I combine an AT-AT with an X-wing (which I call claim on), would that be considered too large, since it would probably be considered a transport not a fighter?

No sanctioned size restriction, just keep it reasonable. Remember that are typically crewed by one and highly maneuverable. You won't get disqualified for making a bad starfighter, but you may be if you make no effort to present it as one. Chopping the legs off an ATAT and slapping on some dinky s-foils won't cut it. Using the head as a cockpit on the other hand... I can see someone pulling that idea off.

Actually, I was gonna build a full-size AT from scratch and add X-wing wings and have the legs fold up in "flight mode" but I'll think of something else.

Question here, suppose I wanted to make one with a Y-Wing cockpit, would I be allowed to use the one from the actual set or would I have to build it with a diferent design?

A couple questions...

1) From the example photos you posted, when you say "Build an entirely new starship or vehicle utilizing design elements...", you are really looking for two existing ships/vehicles, with their parts literally mashed together--NOT a ship that, simply in terms of design, borrows stylistic elements from other ships, and possibly represents a "transition" model between those ships, like this:
Image
().
Correct?

2) If that's the case, is building a new "transition" type model an automatically DQ'ed entry, or just an entry that steps away from the original spirit of the contest (but might still be awesome)?

Thanks.
