Official SBC Contest #3: For Chima!

It's Chima Month here on BZPower, and it's just not a party without a contest. This month, we're taking a page from Chima's latest playbook and devoting the contest to animal vehicles. You know, where it's a car but it's also a rhino. Best of both worlds. See also: Power Rangers.

Your assignment is to build a vehicle that has clear, distinct, and prominent animal features, and a rider to use it. The rider must be able to use the vehicle, but it doesn't have to be a minifig. Several riders are also acceptable, but you need to be able to get them all in there.

And what exactly are you fighting for? First place takes home a 70132 Scorm's Scorpion Stinger, second gets a 70129 Lavertus' Twin Blade, and third receives a 70126 Crocodile Legend Beast, all graciously provided by Lego.

Now get building!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Entries begin being accepted as soon as this topic is posted, and will stop being accepted on Tuesday, April 15th at 11:59 P.M. EST. We will accept unlimited entries for this contest, so there's no need to rush your entry. To enter, simply post a link to your .jpg or .gif entry picture in this topic. Your entry post in this thread should appear as follows:

Entry Name:
Entry Pic URL:
Topic URL (if applicable):

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A running tally of entrants will be updated daily IN A SEPARATE PINNED TOPIC, which will be posted shortly after the first entries are received.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Voting Process:

Preliminary Voting begins April 16th and ends April 19th at 11:59 P.M. EST.
Final Voting begins April 19th and ends April 21st at 11:59 P.M. EST.
The contest winner and final voting results will be posted in a separate thread on April 21st.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Rules:

1) Your entry may not have been published prior to the start of this contest. You may make your own topic before posting in the official entry thread, but you must create a post in the entry topic before it is closed in order to be officially entered. If, after posting your entry anywhere on BZP but before officially entering it (including the blogs), you modify it and then enter it, you will be disqualified. You may only start one topic for your entry. Please post only one main pic in this entry thread and a link to the rest of the pics in the gallery on your image host (most likely Brickshelf, Photobucket, or Flickr). You can do pictures as normal in your own separate thread. If you need help posting pictures, please see this topic.

2) Don't PM the contest host unless you have to. Ask questions in this topic and the host or an assistant will answer it.

3) Painted parts are NOT ALLOWED. No non-LEGO parts. All other LEGO parts are fair game; however, for the most part, they should be System pieces. Let's say, at least 75% of the MOC System parts. Pictures in which the appearance of the MOC has been edited in Photoshop or other editing software are also prohibited. If either method is used, the MOC will be disqualified. The background may be edited, as long as it does not alter the appearance of the MOC.

4) Only one entry per member. You cannot switch or modify models mid contest. Once you have entered, you may not "un-enter" your models and enter new or modified ones in their stead. 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.

5) 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.

6) 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. They will likely also be banned from the site. Mods know this information, so you're not fooling anyone but yourself by thinking you can get away with it. We run a check on people with multiple accounts too, which is an offense that results in banning from BZP entirely, aside from the contest... DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.

7) No "this is unfair" posting. Some people have more parts, money, time, birds, 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!

8) Discussion is encouraged. Feel free to ask questions about models you see or about the contest in general. This is for us, the BBC builders; let's have some fun with it.

9) The contest is open to all BZP members, and voting is open to all BZP members to participate in even if they did not enter an MOC. "Advertising" your MOC is fine by making a signature or avatar reminding people to vote for you, but mass-PMing is frowned upon and will just get you disqualified. Advertising your MOC in someone else's thread is also a major no-no. Spamming may result in proto loss or even post-count reductions, so don't do it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prizes:

First place will receive 70132 Scorm's Scorpion Stinger. Second place will receive 70129 Lavertus' Twin Blade. Third place will receive 70126 Crocodile Legend Beast. Thanks to Lego for the prizes!

The entry period seems rather short, but I'll see if I can slap something together.
Does the not-necessarily-minifig rule mean that animals (ie frogs, parrots, octopuses) can also operate the vehicles?

This sounds like there's potential for a lot of very creative entries, I'm very excited to see what members come up with. I already know what I'd like to do with it. We gon' get some silly animal vehicles up in here  ^_^ 

These "clear, distinct, and prominent animal features" don't have to be just from one animal, right?

The entry period is as long as it has ever been.

As long as they are clearly the operators, yes.

Rider is the Panda. Normally the turtle would open up to allow for it, but for a single photo it would be impossible to show off this function.

I am now curious. Are we allowed to create entries in programs such as Lego Digital Designer? And although mythological animals are allowed (such as a Manticore), would humanoid creatures (such as a Gorgon or Siren) count?

Might be a good idea to start putting that as a rule in future contests.

 

 

I might enter this contest. Been a while since I've touched any of my Lego so don't expect anything spectacular from me.

question: may the vehicle have a smaller, breakaway "drone" vehicle? so long as it's significantly stunted in size and functions within the main?

I might be misinterpreting your question, but I think you may create a topic in which you can post pictures for the contest, however you must list your entry in this topic with the details listed above (the name, the picture's URL and the topic's URL), though creating a topic to post is not mandatory.

I apologise if I am incorrect, but I think the driver must be an animal, but I think any animal is acceptable and not just exclusively to minifigures from the Legend of Chima sets. The rider does not have to even be a minifigure, so said rider can be anything from a horse to a dragon.

There is a minifigure- an Atlantis hammerhead shark, but he's really hard to see except for his hand, which is holding a lever.

A couple quick questions for some clarification and peace of mind:

Is there any rule that says the creation must be able to stand on its own? Or can I suspend it on strings for photography purposes? ('cause it's a flying vehicle and all). If that's allowed, can I do some really minor photoshopping on my entry pic to just remove the strings from view?

Also! Can the entry picture feature multiple angles and features, or is it one unedited photo from a single angle? And is there any sort of restriction on how long the entry's name can be? Would it be fine as long as it's under 10 words, or something?

Thanks ^^

A couple quick questions for some clarification and peace of mind:

Is there any rule that says the creation must be able to stand on its own? Or can I suspend it on strings for photography purposes? ('cause it's a flying vehicle and all). If that's allowed, can I do some really minor photoshopping on my entry pic to just remove the strings from view?

Also! Can the entry picture feature multiple angles and features, or is it one unedited photo from a single angle? And is there any sort of restriction on how long the entry's name can be? Would it be fine as long as it's under 10 words, or something?

String would not be permitted. You can use a stand made of Lego.

 

A composite entry picture is fine, as long as all the pictures included follow the rules. An excessively long name is discouraged.

Okay, thanks! A followup question:
 

The background may be edited, as long as it does not alter the appearance of the MOC.


If I build a stand for the MOC, does that stand count as part of the background and is eligible to be edited out of the entry picture? Or can I only edit out non-LEGO background? Additionally, if I submit a gif as my entry picture, must it be a still or can part of it be animated (to show spinning rotor blades, or a rotating 360 shot of the model, for example)? Or is it best to just have a blurry, mid-spin still image of the spinning blades, and just include regular still shots of different angles? And is there a limit to the filesize of the entry pic? I like to explore all options and get as creative as I can, so sorry about pressing all the technical questions ^^'

It would be preferred if you did not edit out the stand.

 

Please don't submit your entry picture as a .gif animation: stick to static images. There is no filesize limit on the entry picture, but people are far less likely to want to load a large picture. Try to keep it a reasonable size.
