Interesting contest KimT :thumbup:

Hopefully I'll be able to make the time to make an entry - I know what's needed as far as the Lego universe is concerned :wink:

(and, no, it's not the bleeding obvious OT :tongue: )

I agree with InSeRt NaMe HeRe. does it have to be a Star Wars battle pack? cos I have no Star Wars parts whatsoever ^__^ Can it be a Steampunk or RAMM battlepack?

Logic dictates, that it being a STAR WARS Battlepack Contest, it should be star wars related. But, I have been wrong before. Kimmy, what is it?

Alredy have a first prototype entry ready.  :thumbup: Good luck to all.

Stauder.

Very good contest KimT. I will have to enter this one, as I too have an idea. For clarification's sake, though, it can be a non-cannon Star Wars vehicle? Thank you for this great contest, I will have to get building immediately.

Same question as everyone - Does the entry have to fit in with Star Wars canon and theme, or can it be based on any theme provided that it follows the principles of a battlepack with a Star Wars-esc vehicle.

This contest could definitely bring out a nice Indianna Jones battlepack entry, or a Space Police Alien pack, however I'm thinking that the non-Star Wars might make it too much like the previous contest. :sceptic:

Very good idea. :thumbup: So should the models be aesthetically pleasing, and basic? :look: Most BPs have been that way.

Very cool contest, Kim! I'll be sure to enter it, when I've got time. To the people who want to make battle packs for other themes, this is the SW forum! Of course not! Go make your own contest! Shoo! :laugh: BTW, four of the reviews you cited are mine. :blush:

Best contest ever.

I search for a good BP idea.

Just as a side question: If someone wants to make a Battlepack of a soldier-class, but only has got 1 and wants to include said standard count of 4, is it allowed to photoshop them in the picture?

Question - Is this ""box display image" just a photo set up to look like one similar to the sets image? Or must it have all of the graphics that we see on the front of a box? If that is a little difficult to understand, how about this - "Is Photoshop required to create a box display image?"

I think all that means is a good display image that shows a whole shot of the set. You don't have to add any fancy Box markings or anything.

Okay I really have a good idea for this contest but I want to know something.

When you (KmT) say that customs are allowed does that include sharpied lego pieces.

I know this might be a stupid question but must it be star wars? :cry_sad:

Of course it has to be Star Wars...

Be that canon or a made up battle pack.

Yes

Yes, you may photoshop to some extent.

Using sharpie is considered customizing the figs, so that would be a yes.

AH I love it! I've always said TLC need to design some better Battle Packs. Now is the time to show them what we'd like to see! :cry_happy::thumbup:

Well, this is not exactly what I was hoping for, but still a very nice contest. :classic: And the prizes are outstanding! :oh: Thanks for that, KimT! I'll gladly enter as soon as I have time.

Yes, you may photoshop to some extent.

How about using Photoshop to recolor figs instead of a sharpie?

Exactly. No need for box design (though it would be awesome).

Just a photo showing what's in the box.

Just like the 'real' box front pictures.
