Unofficial Bbcc #50 Contest!

Posted by Velox , Jul 21 2008 · 182 views

BZPower
This is the main topic, which I hope you link to in your sig. I do wish ToM's idea would have won . . .

BBCC #50: The Big Change!


You must build three stages of an MOC. So, if you're building a Toa, you must also build it as a Matoran and Turaga.

-=Times=-


[note: This may be changed later]

The Contest begins now, and entries will be accepted until August 9, 2008 at 12:00 Midnight Eastern Standard Time.

Preliminary polls begin August 11, 2008 and close August 15, 2008.

Semi-final polls begin August 15, 2008 and close August 19, 2008.

Final polls begin August 19, 2008 and close August 24, 2008.

Prizes and the announcement of the winner will be given on August 25, 2008.

-=Rules=-


1) Place all entries in the entries topic which is linked below. DO NOT PUT THEM HERE.

2) Your entry may not have been published prior to the start of this contest.

3) Don't PM the contest host [or co-hosts] unless you have to. Ask questions in this topic and the host will answer it.

4) Painted parts are NOT ALLOWED. No non-LEGO parts. All other LEGO parts are fair game; however, for the most part, they should be Bionicle pieces and Technic pieces. There's a 50%-50% system/technic ratio. The reason is I like system, and it's more creative.

5) You may build a scene like in BBCC #48, but you must have the 'baby' 'teen' and 'adult' stage. You may also have more Matoran, etc. as well. POST HERE. DO NOT PM ME OR THE ASSISTANTS. You cannot switch or modify models mid contest. Once you have entered, you may not "un-enter" your models and enter new ones. You may opt to bow out of the contest for whatever reason but you cannot reenter under such a situation. If you get disqualified for any reason, you will not be allowed to reenter with another MOC in that contest.

6) Any flaming will result in disqualification from the contest. Competition is good if you keep it clean. Everyone play fair, NO WHINING, no insults. I reserve the right to DQ any entry at any time for any reason. If you are disqualified then any posts in my blog will be deleted. That includes the voting. I and the other contest hosts will be watching. If you do post, I will be notified and I will delete it. I will have a list of DQ members.

7) Absolutely, positively NO CHEATING! Anyone found to be cheating or even suspected of cheating will face immediate disqualification from this contest and will be banned from participating in future contests. Of course, I don't know if you create duplicate accounts, but if it looks like you're winning for a weird reason, I will notify an Admin to look into it.

8) No "this is unfair" posting. Some people have more parts, money, time, fish, gigs left on your hard drive, etc. than others. That's life; we each have to do our best with what we have. Any excessive complaining may, at the judgment of the contest runner, disqualify you.

9) This contest is open to all BZPower members. Anyone can enter, anyone can vote. The contest hosts may enter as well. I will not enter though. Also, if What? enters and ends up winning, he'll get the TNGM [the prize for second place] and the second place winner will receive the 6-month PMship.

10) Prizes are welcome. If you have something you'd like to give, please PM me.

11) It can't be a barely modified set - it must be 'custom'. Or else, it's just LEGO winning.

12) If you are not a Contest Assistant, don't answer questions.

-=Prizes=-


First Place: 6-Month Premier Membership donated by What?.
Second Place: One TNGM [Trans Neon Green Miru].
Third Place: I don't know.

More prizes will be given once I or the other contest hosts think of them or if someone donates more.

Yes, as long as there's three stages and you can tell that it's 'baby' 'teen' 'adult'.

Well I was thinking more of adding an extra stage onto the Maroan/Toa/Turaga cycle.

Just for kicks. tongue.gif

Can a decaying corpse count as a "stage"? And what if the first place winner is already Premier?

That should be fine. If you want to PM me your idea I can make sure it's fine.

Most definitely! It's at least 3 stages of life. You can have more MOCs than the three stages, so if one of those MOCs is another stage it's fine - to answer Bfahome's question.

Then, you'll get the TNGM unless you want it for when you run out.

You may build a background in your entry, but you must have the 'Matoran', 'Toa', and 'Turaga' stage. You may have more Matoran, etc. as well.


That rule seems a little strange. What is the need of a background if this is not a vignette contest. tongue.gif

This will be fun though! laugh.gif

Can you do it of a machine? Like the first stage is the prototype, second stage is normal, and third stage is an upgraded form?

what's wrong about it?

Like, you can build a scene like #48, but you have to have the three things.

I'll enter if I can. I'm busy building another set of MOCs currently. Though I do have an Idea. Can we take one MOC, duplicate it, and then add onto it, for one of our stages? You know, like an upgrade.

Well, it could be added onto your current Premiership. 1 year + 1 year and 6 months, for example.

That's the way they do it for official BBCCs, I think.

#1 So they have to be all built at once? All the stages have to exist simultaneously?

#2 A machine are allowed. How about a guy in an upgrading mech suit? Would that be allowed, or would he have to evolve also, or what?

#3 How many stages are allowed? Anything more than three?

QUOTE
4) Painted parts are NOT ALLOWED. No non-LEGO parts. All other LEGO parts are fair game; however, for the most part, they should be Bionicle pieces and Technic pieces. There's a 50%-50% system/technic ratio.


Hey, I thought this was a Bionicle-Based Creations Contest.

QUOTE
The reason is I like system, and it's more creative.


I think the correct response to that on a Bionicle site is a simple:

O RLY? laugh.gif

Actually, having gone to the Brickfest multiple times, I remember being more impressed by the sheer size of most of the models rather than their creativity.

QUOTE
Also, if What? enters and ends up winning, he'll get the TNGM [the prize for second place] and the second place winner will receive the 6-month PMship.


Forethought! It would be a little awkward to win my own prize. That happened to Arpy in his own contest. rotflz.gif
