FBTB Mech Madness 2012 Building Tournament - Secret Crisis

PostPosted: Tue Sep 04, 2012 1:12 pm
by Staff

The past four days of Secret Crisis posts has laid down the foundation for this year's building tournament. Secret Crisis is the setting and the motivation for Earth's mightiest heroes and villains to compete for the ultimate power in the universe. Your job is to choose a side, pick a hero or villain, and build a mech consisting of an enclosed cockpit and at minimum two legs. The rest is up to you.

This year's tournament format is little different than previous years'. Instead of four pools of pool play, there will only be two. All of the Super Hero mechs will be placed in a pool and the same for the Super Villain mechs. The top 16 from each pool will advance to bracket play. For bracket play, the board will be split down the middle and all of the Super Hero mechs will continue on to compete against each other on one side of the board; the same for the Super Villains on the other side of the board. This will determine which will be the best mech from each side to go up against each other in the finals, a battle of good vs. evil. You can only build for one side, so choose your hero or villain wisely.

Tournament is open today through 11:59pm Pacific Time Saturday November 3rd, 2012. That gives you two months to build. All of the details and more rules can be found right here. The prizes? We're giving away LEGO Shop@Home gift cards in the amounts of $150, $100, and $50 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes, respectively. But that's not all. I am working on securing a few other prizes to be confirmed soon and, trust me, they are prizes worth fighting for. So stay tuned and get building!

So many great choices, head going to explode. Thanks again FBTB for ruining several of the upcoming weekends. My wife will kill me.

Does a roll cage count as an enclosed cockpit? Say I build a robot for the Hulk or Wendigo, does a roll cage ala Aliens Power Loader count as an enclosed cockpit?

Oh snap! To enter or not to enter. Hmm. Might have to put my mega project on hold for a few weeks.

I'm excited about the new mecha contest, but I don't think its very ethical to pretend to offer prizes...

This sounds like a great contest, but will the winners get the prizes promised?
I'm not here to mix it up but this issue of prize delivery needs addressing!

Of course they will. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ace has never not come through with a prize. He's just terrible with doing so in a timely manner lately. I know he has a few remaining to ship from recent contests but everyone else has been taken care of. If I'm wrong, and anyone out there was somehow forgotten, let us know and we'll make sure you get what you're owed.

Yeah I was all geared up for a ship. Now I have to figure out if any of the design details/techniques will be useable on a mech. O.O
