The Contest:

Hey everyone, do you remember our very first Eurobricks/Classic-Town.net Collectible LEGO Minifigures Series 1 Town Building Contest? It's back and bigger than before! To celebrate the excitement of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 2 continuation, Eurobricks is proud to present the second installment of challenging building contest for the month of September. So, come on and join in the fun.

What You're Building

We are opening 2 Building Categories for our Eurobricks Community. It's much challenging and exciting than before. More importantly, we want to see your imagination guide your building inspiration.

Category A - Build an 8x8 Vignette

Build an 8x8 vignette from any theme where you could display any of the 16 new Collectable Minifigures from Series 2. It can be Town, Medieval or even Space. As long you are able to relate the chosen theme and minifigures to your audience, then you are on the right track.

Category B - Build an Interaction Vignette between Minifigures Series 1 & 2

Build an 16x16 vignette from any theme where you could display one of the minifigure inside Series 1 interacting with an imaginary minifigure inside Series 2. As long your vignette is able to show the interaction between both series, then you are on the right track. Take this opportunity to build and write a good original storyline to impress us. Anything is possible.

Where would you display one of these in the above categories?

Cool!

These are definitely some really generous prizes especially cause they are not available in most places. :thumbup:

Already got an idea and just hope I can get something made in time (exams at the moment :cry_sad: ).

Good luck to everybody!

This is really confusing...

Question:

1. what is a Vignette??

2. (9. One entry per person. An entry must include a picture (no larger than 800x600) showing the vignette without the minifigure you built it for. Include the name (type) of that minifigure and the theme that you have done. Other minifigures may appear in the pictures. You may include up to 2 more images following the same rules. If you choose to take additional pictures, you may link to an outside gallery.

# Digital backgrounds are allowed.

First you state "One entry per person".. then you go on to say "You may include up to 2 more images following the same rules."~~ wouldn't that be 3 entries?

So let me make sure I understand correctly..

The task at hand is to build a small scaled model either 8*8 or 16*16 using all pieces up to the series 1 released pieces from lego. In order to build a series 2 set. Category A is strictly for series 2 and Category B is for series 1 and two combined. You many not use any series 2 pieces in either of the two scales sets..

I am not really sure if you are allowed to make 1 , 2 , or 3 pictures.. or if you can make a little story board like a comic book.. or if all three pictures can be separate submissions. can you post some examples to clarify??

thank you :classic:

1. what is a Vignette??

Short answer; a small MOC of a scene. You can find some details here.

First you state "One entry per person".. then you go on to say "You may include up to 2 more images following the same rules."~~ wouldn't that be 3 entries?

No, just three images of the same MOC.

The task at hand is to build a small scaled model either 8*8 or 16*16 using all pieces up to the series 1 released pieces from lego. In order to build a series 2 set. Category A is strictly for series 2 and Category B is for series 1 and two combined. You many not use any series 2 pieces in either of the two scales sets..

I can't agree or disagree to that. Please read the rules again.

I am not really sure if you are allowed to make 1 , 2 , or 3 pictures.. or if you can make a little story board like a comic book.. or if all three pictures can be separate submissions.

Three images of the same MOC. One submission.

can you post some examples to clarify??

Errr.... no. That would take too long. But look at this contest; the concept is similar.

Wow! I didn't realize there would be another contest for Series 2! This sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. I'm not sure if I'll have time to enter, but I'm sure everyone who does will have some fantastic ideas and entries.

Come on everyone! Put on your thinking cap. I am sure Category A is very much familiar for most of you, but I am very interested and looking forward to the ideas for Category B. It will be fun! :wub:

Thanks Siegfried for helping to answer the questions above. :wink:

I meant using only "parts" and I don't mean using those parts to form the exact same minifigure inside Series 1 twice which is why I mention only having one designated minifigure in the storyline. However, using those Series 1 parts to construct a brand new minifigure to compliment the storyline is allow.
