Official BBC Contest #75: It's Time to Dual!


One member, one entry. That's how it's gone since the beginning of forever. Okay, sometimes it's one member, multiple entries. But the point is it's always been every builder for themselves.

Until now.

For this special occasion, the 75th official BBC contest, you will team up with another member and together, you will create two MOCs that complement each other perfectly. You've got free rein of what those MOCs are, but they must go together. Agreement: the first, and perhaps greatest, challenge.

You can only enter once, so pick your partner wisely. You'll have an extended entry period, because two weeks is a tight deadline when you're waiting on someone's response. And should you succeed in not only cooperating, but winning the contest? You'll both receive The Art of Bionicle, generously provided by Nick Vas and LEGO.

So don't be shy and buddy up already: it's time to dual!

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

You have from now until Wednesday, May 9th to submit your entries. To submit your entries, just use this handy form. Only one entry per pair, please.

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

Voting:

Preliminary Voting begins May 11th and ends May 14th at 11:59 P.M. EST.
Final Voting begins May 14th and ends May 16th at 11:59 P.M. EST.
The contest winner and final voting results will be posted in a separate thread on May 17th.

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

Rules:

1) Entries may not have been posted on BZPower prior to the start of the contest. It can be posted anywhere else before the contest, but it must never have been seen before on BZPower. Once entered, entries cannot be modified: you're committed to what you've entered. If you withdraw your entry, you cannot enter again that contest. If your entry is disqualified, you cannot enter again that contest.

2) Painted parts, non-LEGO parts, and parts edited in Photoshop are not permitted and will disqualify you. All other LEGO pieces are permitted, but the entry must be at least 75% Bionicle/Hero Factory/Technic.

3) Keep it clean, keep it civil. No flaming, no whining. Unsporting conduct will just get you disqualified.

4) Campaigning for votes (mass-PMing, etc), using multiple accounts to skew voting, and sundry other methods of cheating are only going to end in tears for you. Trust us: we'll know when you're doing it.

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

Prizes:

The first place winners will both receive a copy of The Art of BIONICLE. The second place finishers will both receive a Toa (Lewa, Onua, or Kopaka) and matching Protector of their choice. The third place finishers will both receive a Skull Slicer, Basher, or Scorpio of their choice.. Thanks to Nick Vas and LEGO for the prizes!

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

Contest Host:

Tufi Piyufi

Wow wow those incredible artbooks are a heck of a good prize! 

 

Super cool contest theme!  But man, now I feel like I gotta make a speed dating thread to find someone good to partner up with.  And then figure out how to build in perfect harmony over the internet.  This won't be an easy one.

This is the most interesting contest brief I have ever encountered! I'm baffled as to how this wasn't thought of before :D

 

I'll definitely be participating... subject to finding the right partner, of course!

 

Side note: the second-place prizes are much more of interest to me tbh  :P

Now, that's an interesting concept for a contest. I might enter this one, assuming I can find someone willing to put up with me for it. :P

Just for clarification, I presume the two mocs don't actually have to be shot together, like in person? Photoshopping them together would be allowed?

Surprisingly enough, sixteen years of contest history isn't very conducive to a winners' reunion. Besides, a little change is always fun.

 

Just for clarification, I presume the two mocs don't actually have to be shot together, like in person? Photoshopping them together would be allowed?

I'm working on the entry form now, but I will be asking for two separate entry pictures, one for each half. You definitely don't have to have both MOCs in the same place or anything.

 

Also: would a 'partner wanted' topic be of any interest to you guys?

So can we also have the option to photoshop them into a single picture?  Might be good for presenting how the two models "complement each other perfectly".  

 

And I'd love a matchmaking topic.  We can put other stuff like galleries of our past work, skills (like photoshop), or frequency of availability to help us find people with compatible styles.

It definitely would seem like a topic for folks to find partners for the contest would be helpful. Probably would be more efficient than the route I took to find my partner.

Ah, a partner-based BBC might be just what I need to get me out of a creative rut.  Count me in.

 

Also, yeah, a matchmaking topic might be nice.

I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)

Do both halves of the team-up need to be BZP members? I mean, the partner I have in mind can just sign up now, but would that be an issue that they weren't members beforehand?

Official BBC Contest #75: It's Time to Dual!


One member, one entry. That's how it's gone since the beginning of forever. Okay, sometimes it's one member, multiple entries. But the point is it's always been every builder for themselves.

Until now.

For this special occasion, the 75th official BBC contest, you will team up with another member and together, you will create two MOCs that complement each other perfectly. You've got free rein of what those MOCs are, but they must go together. Agreement: the first, and perhaps greatest, challenge.

You can only enter once, so pick your partner wisely. You'll have an extended entry period, because two weeks is a tight deadline when you're waiting on someone's response. And should you succeed in not only cooperating, but winning the contest? You'll both receive The Art of Bionicle, generously provided by Nick Vas and LEGO.

Can we team up with in person building friends? They usually visit as a guest, but i'm sure they'd be happy to create an account for such an awesome chance. I guess I'm asking whether partnering with a brand new member to bzpower is allowed. 

 

I only build MOCs with my in person friends, and don't really have any online MOC friends. So if not, then a matchmaking area would be awesome!

This sounds like an awesome contest with fantastic prizes! ^_^ This may be the first contest (other than BftGM) that I enter on BZP!

And thirded... or fourthed... or however I can emphasize my agreement.

 

Sounds fun. Sounds challenging. Guess I need to plead for a partner since my Flickr and Brickshelf accounts haven't been updated in who knows how long...

Very interesting contest idea, this should be loads of fun!

Just a question about the entry pic thing. Say the two builds are made to combine physically in some way, would it be alright to have a picture of the two MOCs together, combined as an entry?

Weird. I didn't get a notification that you quoted me a few days ago. Unfortunately, I have a partner that I am excited to work with. In the spirit of friendly competition, here's a link to the matchmaking thread http://www.bzpower.c...chmaking-topic/ I found my partner here  :)  

 

As much as I want the artbook (I was pretty bummed I couldn't win one myself originally), I wish you good luck, and I hope you find a good partner.
