The Contest:

Hey everyone, the long anticipated wait is finally over! I have been hearing people are tired of waiting and wondered when will the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 6 contest challenge begins? The Eurobricks LEGO Collectable Minifigures Contest has come a very very long way since we started our very first LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 1 Town Building Contest, continuing with the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 2 Building Contest, following up with the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 3 Building Contest, LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 4 Building Contest and concluded with the recent LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 5 Building Contest. Eurobricks is proud to present for the sixth time of this brand new traditional challenging building contest for the months of March and April. So, come on everyone and gather your bricks and start building your contest entries!

What You're Building

We are opening 2 major Building Categories for our Eurobricks Community. It's much more challenging, interesting 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 6. It can be Town, Medieval, Wild West, Fantasy or even Space. As long you are able to relate the chosen theme and selected minifigure to your audience, then you are on the right track.

Category B - Build an Architectural Scene with the LEGO Collectable Minifigures

Build up to 24x24 vignette from any architectural design where you could display a combination of this special interacting scene of your selected minifigure from the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 6 and any selected existing minifigures from the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 1 to 5.

Where would you display one of these in Category A?

Great contest! However, I am a bit confused about the category 2 idea. Is it a vignette with a minifig (and an invisible one) and part of a building?

You better enter! This time, if you have noticed, the given deadline for submission is pretty long, and it is definitely one of the longest. No excuses for you! :tongue:

It is a vignette of the minimum size of 8 by 8 studs and up to a maximum of 24 by 24 studs. It MUST contain an invisible Series 6 minifigure and placed at least one Series 1 to 5 minifigures of your choice to display an interacting scene where there MUST be at least one architectural design of your choice in the vignette!

Is it better???

I just may enter this. One question: when it refers to "8X8 studs", does this mean 8 studs long and 8 studs wide, or something else?

What's the reason for no LDD entries? (for any contest, not just this one)

Looking forward to all the stuff you guys make, always fun to see what you come up with

Yes.

What's the reason for no LDD entries? (for any contest, not just this one)

This is an Eurobricks LEGO Building Contest with the usage of actual LEGO bricks. So, in principle, we are looking at participants to contest through this approach as this is catered for LEGO builders and not LDD builders. Of course, we have LDD contests from time to time as well.

Ah, very good! I was beginning to think this contest got scrapped. :wink: Neat how Category B is in the spirit of Architecture Month, although I found the movie scene theme of the last one to be more challenging. I already have some good ideas and will gladly enter again if I can find the time, which shouldn't be too much of a problem with such a long submission time frame. :thumbup:

Can we use multiples of our chosen S6 minifig in our Category B entry?

Nope! It won't be scrapped, at least when I mentioned it inside the Series 6 review unless of course, I didn't give any hints for it in the future. And, this time is definitely the longest contest deadline ever for the CMF contest! So, better work on it! :tongue:

Can we use multiples of our chosen S6 minifig in our Category B entry?

I don't quite understand this question. The Series 6 minifigure for Category B is only exclusive to "one interaction" for that particular scene, and at least one or more other Collectable Minifigures of your choice from Series 1 to 5.

What I wanted to know is if I could use an army of Romans, but apparently not. Thanks. :classic:

So you want to use multiple invisible figs? Did you just buy a bunch on Bricklink or something? :laugh:

I know we wouldn't be allowed to show them in the entry pics, even if we were allowed to have multiples, but you could intend to have them in the scene and include them in the off-site picture gallery. :wink: Oh well, never mind.

EDIT: Very funny title pic, by the way! Kudos to Brickthing! :thumbup:

As long you don't use any of those images to be reflected in the 4 deeplink images for the contesting entry in Category B, and only inform others that you got additional pictures through off-site gallery. I am fine. Just don't mislead the audience.

EDIT: Very funny title pic, by the way! Kudos to Brickthing! :thumbup:

I knew I forgotten something. Added the credits for the promotional poster!

Thank you Brickthing! :wub:

Part of Clause 10 for Category B states:

"You may not include the official minifigure or it's new accessories/parts from Series 6 in your official entry pictures. You may use older accessories, but not new ones from Series 6 like the Sleepyhead's teddy bear, Celtic Warrior's sword, Mechanic's wrench, Lady Liberty's tablet, etc, for example. Please note Series 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 minifigures and parts are allow in this category."

Does it mean the Butcher's t-bone steak, cleaver cannot be used? but we can use the butcher?

Given that it specifically states that the accessories cannoy be used either, I believe this is a big no to using the figure or its accessories.

But I would also guess that you could have a place in your vignette for the accessories to go!
