Official BBC Contest #79: >enter building contest!

Have you heard about... video games?

They're pretty neat! You can be all kinds of things, doing all kinds of things. Want to be an elf who eats dragon souls? Sure. Race powerful cars in beautiful locales? Not a problem. Tap a ton of square buttons in time to the music? I wish you the very best of luck.

Even Bionicle has gotten in on that gaming action. You can't talk about the theme's success without mentioning the Mata Nui Online Game. We've seen various games come to the hot consoles of their day. Fans even take matters into their own hands and make Bionicle mods for other games, or make whole new games outright.

But what about the reverse? For this contest, you'll need to build something from a video game. A character, an item, a place... it's up to you.

Happy building, gamers!

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

You have from now until Thursday, March 31st at 11:59 P.M. Eastern to submit your entries. To submit your entries, just use this handy form. Only one entry per person, please.

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

Voting:

Preliminary Voting begins March 29th and ends April 1st at 11:59 P.M. EST.

Final Voting begins April 1st and ends April 4th at 11:59 P.M. EST.

The contest winner and final voting results will be posted in a separate thread on April 5th.

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

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.

Ooooh, I have a perfect MOC for this. It's been sitting, un photographed for a couple years, so I should maybe touch it up, but it will fit perfectly.

You say to use this handy form to submit. What handy form is it?

We were just waiting on some backend stuff - the form is now handy.

I wish I'd checked in sooner to see this! Maybe I'll whip something up! Thank you for hosting events like this :D

Question: Can entries be digital? I may want to do a digital one and could prove it's existing colours by sharing the file?

I'm sorry, but we're not allowing digital entries at this time.

To balance out the maintenance downtime earlier this week, we're extending the deadline to Thursday, March 31 at 11:59 PM Eastern. Voting dates will be updated correspondingly, but I think that's enough math for the evening.

May we use an entry picture of a build with a stand edited out, as long as we also provide the non-edited photo to the contest hosts via the form?

Yes, you can just send me the entry picture with the stand edited out.

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes!
