The Eurobricks Star Wars Forum is proud to announce an exciting new contest!

Contest Theme

Everyone likes those cute little astromech droids, with their robotic speech and movements. However, in the Star Wars movies, we have not seen the astromech droid in action very often. In this contest, your objective is to create a workplace for an astromech droid (or multiple astromech droids). This workplace could be anything: a hangar, a large capital ship, or even a futuristic hotel. Anything where an astromech droid could do what it does best is acceptable for this contest.

The Rules

  • Contest will run from June 6th to August 6th. Entries must be posted by midnight GMT on August 6th. Entries posted after this deadline will not be accepted.
  • All entries must contain at least one astromech droid. In the case that you do not have an astromech droid minifigure, brick-built astromech droids will also be accepted.
  • Entries must be at least somewhat based on Star Wars. However, this does not mean that entries must be something directly from the Star Wars franchise. New places, ships, and other ideas are all acceptable.
  • There is no size limit for this competition.
  • One entry per member.
  • All entries must be new creations that have not been posted anywhere prior to the contest's start.
  • All entries must include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed.
  • Decals and custom minifigures and accessories (Brickarms, Brickforge) are allowed, but modifying parts is not allowed.
  • Entries are to be posted in the Watto's Junkyard sub forum of the Star Wars forum.
  • To enter your MOC, create a new thread in Watto's Junkyard with the title labeled Astromech Workplace Contest: followed by the name of the entry. For example, Astromech Workplace Contest: R2-D2's Hangar
  • Post pictures no larger than 800 x 600
  • All entry threads are considered WIPs (work in progress), which means that you can make improvements to your MOC up until the final deadline.

Wow those prices are amazing! I only own 1 droid so I'm not sure if I'll enter the contest. I do have a small idea already.

Wow! I can't wait to start building! Now, if I'm understanding this right, it's like an Astromech's droid's "home", so to speak?

Yes, pretty much. It could be a ship, hangar, etc. Anywhere that an astromech could do its job will work.

I hohe that there will be too many of strong desighners, so I have no chances to win. But I will take part in this contest! :wink:

P.S. Are there all astromech droids in the prizes, wich have ever been in LEGO?

Not quite all; there are old version of R2 and the black droid that have the smaller band head printing, like the green and red ones that are included in the prize pool. There is also a new green droid in Tiin's fighter for this summer.
