Here's my entry...

Minifigs:

Series 1: Robot

Series 2: Spartan/Roman Warrior

Series 3 (imaginary): Space Alien

The space alien and his robot pilot have crash-landed on a planet whose civilization is much less advanced than their own... They crashed on Earth, many many years ago from our point of view - in ancient Rome... They landed in the middle of a square, damaging a fountain and making a certain Roman soldier who was there at the time feel quite puzzled.

CLICK HERE to see the inside of the alien spacecraft, with seats for the robot pilot and the (imaginary) space alien.

There's a slight overhang here and there (the Roman, the fountain, the spaceship's engine), but it's less than two studs.

Hello! Here's my entry!

Minifigs:

Series 1: Crash Dummy (only kind I got from LEGO :sceptic: )

Series 2: Traffic Cop

Series 3: Racer

The Racer has gotten a new three wheeled car, but he wasn't sure if it was safe. So he called his best buddy, the Crash Dummy, to test it out for him.

The Dummy starts the car and drives like mad. Unfortunately, he drives past a traffic cop who just put a drunken teenager to jail for drinking and driving

Title: The Swindle

Minifigures:

Series 1: Forestman

Series 2: Witch

Series 3(Imaginary): Elf

Theme: Medieval (Fantasy era)

Story: The forestman challenged to Elf to a shooting contest with a superb prize: a rare e elvish dagger. The tournament is held deep within the forest and both shooters only have one arrow. He who is closest to the middle of the target wins. Who shall it be?

Well, to everybody's surprise it is the forestman! His yellow arrow hits the mark, while the Elvish purple arrow is nowhere near the mark! Something must be wrong here... If you look closely at picture 1 two hints can be spotted.

img_0645.jpg

Yep, one could spot a bat and a piece of a broom. It seems that a witch was involved! Through magic trickery she caused the elvish arrow to be redirected towards the bushes, while she also made sure the yellow arrow went straight into the mark.

But it seems quite shortsighted of the forestman to make a deal with the evil witch. My guess? He'll be turned into a toad by the end of the day...

img_0652.jpg

PS. @Mods: I arranged the leaves in such a way that none of them crosses the two stud overhang limit. If necessary pictures can be provided.

Series 1 - Ninja

Series 2 - Karate master

Series 3 - Samurai

5468259430_f18d236c24_z.jpg

Ninja 2 by The Solitary Dark, on Flickr

5468260610_6074ef7d72_z.jpg

Ninja 3 by The Solitary Dark, on Flickr

Kuriegu is visiting the burial site of one of his ancient ancestors, who he knows to be a Samurai.

He has an important tournament tomorow and is seeking guidance.

However the Ninja assasin, hired by his rival, has followed him and plans to kill him.

However Kuriegu is alerted to the Ninja's presence and is soon joined by someone who is able to protect him from the assasin's Katana....

I think it is an easy choice to put these characters together, but this was a scene i'd wanted to do for a long time - I only wish I had some 4x1 brown tiles so the bridge slats could be made of wood, but alas I have none...

See it with the samurai in my Flickr stream (Click on The Solitary Dark under the images)

The Tipi

Here's my entry! :laugh: I decided to build my 16x16 vig with a small border around the outside to finish it off nicely.

I built the tipi with the back missing so you can access the inside.

I couldn't get a good shot of the top of the tipi, so I'll tell you about it and you can zoom in on the main picture :grin:

The smoke is made from white Exo-Force Devastator arms clipped together. Wooden poles spiral through the tipi and poke through the top. Trophies hang down to show Sundancer's success!

I have built a scene of a TV serial drama

Guess the title!

Minifigures:

Series 1 – Cheerleader

Series 2 – Traffic Cop

Series 3 – Fisherman

Theme: Town (crime scene)

Story:

Pete Martell on his way to fishing caught a sight of something strange on the river bank, which turned out to be the body of a young girl wrapped in a plastic bag. Pete called the police immediately, and since in a little town like this homicide is very rare, sheriff Harry S. Truman himself came to see the scene of the crime before turning to special agent Dale Cooper for help.

08.jpg

Hint: The name of the dead girl is Laura Palmer.

15.jpg

Solution: Of course, it is Twin Peaks.

My entry is for the fisherman.

The fisherman thought he had found a quiet place to fish, but a surfer looking for new thrills suddenly appears at the top of the waterfall, ready to dive down, while his friend is getting ready with an underwater videocamera to film his jump, both above and below water.

Do Cyborgs Dream of Electric Sheep?

This is for the Cyborg (Series 3) interacting with the Surfer (Series 2) and the Nurse (Series 1).

Project Electric Sheep

Log Author Nurse Hauer

Date Stamp 2158.02.28 14:44 FPT

On behalf of Dr Xavier Storm, I am conducing a series of experiments to determine whether or not cyborgs dream of electric sheep. He feels that this is an important area of research which has so far been neglected by his fellow researchers here at the Institute.

Unfortunately, past results have proven inconclusive. With previous test sequences, the combined dream analyser and holographic projector has failed to produce any kind of coherent response. In addition, I fear that some of our test subjects may have been irreparably damaged by the process.

However, I have now commenced test sequence 453-Gamma-3 using test subject Cyborg XF218 and the results appear to be positive. Based upon the output of the holographic projector, it appears that we can conclusively state that our test subject dreams of becoming a surfer.

Whilst this was not the result we were looking for, today's success is a clear indication that we have made some progress towards resolving one of our generation's greatest unsolved questions.

One day, I am confident that we will be able to locate the elusive electric sheep.

Research continues ...

The Cyborg minifig stands on the two studs at the bottom of the "dentist's chair".

Check out the complete set on Flickr if you are interested in seeing the vignette from another couple of angles and with the Cyborg included: Electric Dream on Flickr

Also, the dream in this vignette can be removed and replaced with any other standard 8x8 vignette.

For example, this is the vignette with the surfing dream replaced with another one of my vignettes.

Minifig 3: Snowboard Girl

winter1.jpg

Outside

Story:

When the snow had come to the village of mister Skater Boy, he had to find another activity instead of skateboarding. He was lucky to find that there was a vacancy open in the local Winter Sports Store. He now works as employee and advises the customers about the latest developments and trends in skiing, snowboarding etc. The shop is always crowded; Pepper is about to buy new goggles, while on the first floor the skier (well known of his performance is Series 2) is handing his skis to the wax-dude, who got the right tools for waxing. And because of the fresh snow a third employee has to clean the street, while my sigfig is enjoying the snow. The now invisible Snowboard girl is doing some illegal stuff, she's about to drop in from the roof, she's sitting on the ridge, where you can see the pushed snow.

Excuse the canister in the background. :laugh: Also, the mummy is meant to fit in behind the chains on the front porch.

b_entry_pic_2.jpg

This was supposed to be my main entry pic, but I didn't like the way the lighting turned out on it. In this picture you can see a demon and an evil clown peering out of the windows.

The spider is crawling out of the basement.

The roof overhangs by no more than one stud on the sides and back of the entry. The spider also overhangs very slightly.
