  1. contest

  2. Updated with final model^^ Hey everyone, here's my TC11 Entry Topic... The Reaper I started my work on my contest entry the day it began. I built a chassis using red rims and the wheels from 42039. It had a giant hammer (made in LDD). of Mjolnir.lxf It was called the "Wrath of Mjolnir." (Mjolnir is the name of the Norse God Thor's hammer.) The chassis was much too big, so I scrapped the entire chassis built IRL. I started thinking of Ideas in my mind, the first being a half-track of sorts. 107mm Tractor tires in the front, and tracks in the back. After thinking more, I decided it would be better to just make it simple, with 4 wheels, and I built up the bodywork. I decided that the hammer was way too big, so I made 2 smaller ones. After thinking even longer and looking at other bot hammers I thought they were still too large, so I opted for a non-brick-built one instead. I remembered I had this piece, and knew it would be perfect. I also bought a bucket, because it looked good and I knew it would be prefect for trapping opponents inside. Here is what I have now, and the name was changed to The Reaper, because the piece looks like part of a scythe. The scythe is not attached yet. Also, after seeing @agrof's topic, I realized the bucket was too big for the maximum size. But I've figured out a way to move it upward into the box limitation and swivel it back down for battle mode. I still have much to do, like, Attach the scythe put the PF back in (it is in something else right now) make the bucket move fix the colors complete the bodywork So, it is definitely a WIP, but I hope to do it right and do well in this competition. Please tell me your thoughts!
  3. Howler's Gulch was once a booming coal town, but when the miners dug too deep, they released an unthinkable threat that spread through the desert like wildfire. Now the few remaining pockets of survivors roam the desert in search of water and shelter, their numbers diminishing every day. Charles Livingstone- Before the plague, he was a respected Civil War veteran, but his first encounter with the undead left him without his legs and his trachea. Thanks to the work of a brilliant doctor/mechanic from San Francisco, he now lives relatively comfortably as the leader of a ragtag group of survivors. His favorite tea is Earl Grey, and his hobby is mowing down zombies with his steam-powered wheelchair while laughing maniacally. The Man in Black- No one knows much about this character, other than that he's a man who wears black. He's a heck of a shot, and that's all that matters to the other survivors. Jack the Monkey- Jack was bitten by one of the undead while working as a trained coal hauler monkey, but rather than become undead himself, he turned into a fully sentient monkey/zombie hybrid. The same doctor who fixed up Livingstone fitted him with drills for arms, which he uses to tear through hordes of zombies like butter. Butch Grimlow- Jack's owner and a former coal miner, Butch now applies his pick-axing skills to zombies instead of rocks. He keeps the heads of his victims in a knapsack strapped to his back, and the others are afraid to ask him what he plans on doing with them. Calamity Ann- Ann is a tough-as-nails sniper and former train robber who lost all of the flesh on her right arm in a previous encounter. No one on the team has had the nerve to ask her how it happened, and she acts like she doesn't even notice it.
  4. IMG_2164 The cooky old crank Artric had finally finished his device to rid Liverpoolium of the plague of the creeping carcasses, unfortunately for him when testing what solution to fill his sky sprayer with his zombie pesticide actually spread the scrooge and got him bitten by one of the roaming dead. IMG_2165 One of the royal legion slaughtered what remained of Artric during a daring battle on the wreck of the craft. Sorry my photography skills aren't the greatest. IMG_2163 IMG_2174 That's how he fits inside. IMG_2172
  5. After the last few months, my family has learned that nowhere is truly safe. Allies become enemies. Walls are breached. Simple illnesses become death sentences. Anyone who thinks he is safe is kidding himself. I remember the last time we felt safe. That was before my daughter was an only child. Full scene by BillyBricks, on Flickr Recently, we have found a rhythm in moving from place to place in the city. After our apartment complex fell to the dead, we managed to escape into the streets, foraging as we went and finding shelter that could last for a few days before having to move on. Although the dead seem to constantly stalk us, it's the living we must watch out for. If we thought people were self-serving before, we were mistaken. Crashed Car by BillyBricks, on Flickr Gunshots by BillyBricks, on Flickr Watching as my husband and daughter get what sleep they can, I remember when keeping my family safe meant buying the right foods, watching for suspicious characters at the playground, and going to the doctor annually. Those memories are already starting to fade. Now, they are replaced with frantic running and desperate attempts to find supplies to keep going for one more day. Female Survivor by BillyBricks, on Flickr As I carve this new spear, I almost start to relax. Two days ago we found this deli, which must not have been heavily looted because there were stacks of canned food and bottled water hidden in a corner in the basement. We've been here ever since, creating some simple defenses and even taking the time to hang a sheet so we can have a "private" toilet. Full Basement by BillyBricks, on Flickr It's times like these when I have to remind myself that letting my guard down can mean the difference between being hungry and tired tomorrow or never seeing that new dawn. I...What's that noise? It sounds like our trap upstairs worked. Speared Zombie by BillyBricks, on Flickr That will be something to deal with tomorrow. Another problem, and here I was feeling safe for a moment. But I have to remember, in the apocalypse, safe is a four letter word. Basement in dark by BillyBricks, on Flickr This is my first time entering a contest on Eurobricks. I have lurked on this site for months, enjoying the pictures of wonderful creations that others put up every day. I've only been back in LEGO for about a year now, and I've been building MOCs for less than half that time. It's probably pretty obvious that I am a newbie thanks to the fact that I decided to build three full walls on my bottom level (dark much?) and I'm using the camera on my phone to take pictures. I built this MOC so I could easily take the two levels apart, so at least that planning worked out. Coming up with an idea for the contest and working toward the deadline were both fun. I loved seeing all of the other entries, as well!
  6. It was over. With a screech, we managed to stop the car going into the hole where the bridge used to be. There was no way of escaping, now. Karen jumped out of the car, saying, "there's no use sitting there!" I got out, and looked over the water - but there was nowhere to swim to without zombies. The helicopters had dropped supplies and flyers on getting to safety, but with no bridge and no car we weren't ever getting there. The groan got louder, as more zombies joined the horde before us. "I'm not going down without a fight," said Karen, and in that moment I loved her more than ever. I pulled the shovel out of the car, and braced myself. (Contest pic) Hey everyone, had a lot of fun making this. I have a silly number of zombies from another project - the board game Dead of Winter with Lego minifigs instead of standees. That made this contest a no-brainer, so I tried to make a 'classic' zombie scene where the "horde" aspect is in full force. That's how I came up with the broken bridge and the no-hope story. Also, I'm just really pleased with how the 4X4 came out. Full overview: Scene is 48x40.
  7. In the year 2036, a virus has erupted and is destroying the world's population, turning them into zombies. There aren't many people left, but there have been huge advances in artificial intelligence. The only solution? Equip huge self-driving vehicles with this AI to destroy the zombies, and transport any humans it finds. Scientists work with the few remaining materials to create these, and call them Zombie Destruction Rovers, aka Z.D.R.s. They are programed to obliterate any zombie they encounter. It has: 4 Wheel Steering 2 guns with a large range of movement 2 sliding guns with a large range of movement Large tires for running over zombies Self-driving capabilities A large space for Survivors to go inside Edited picture.^^
  8. Hello everyone, there is a contest, that comes around annually, and never ceases to impress, both with the fun from the participants, the difficulty deciding for the judges, and even the amazement of the viewers, of the the Middle Earth builds posted in the 5th annual Middle Earth Lego Olympics on Mocpages. I had the honor of helping set up the contest this year, and I am very excited for what is ahead, since the Mocpages forum is dying off, and we still want to have a competition that is fun, and challenging, we are advertising this contest on all other sites so that it can meet the expectations of the moccers on Mocpages. There will be six rounds, of different Middle Earth related such as Poems/Songs in the books and/or movies. Round 1 will be a free for all, which will be judges by 6 judges on a 1-10 point scale where the top 32 contestants will move on to the next round, then, from rounds 2-6, the rounds will be a one-on-one moc-off, where contestants will face off, and the judges will choose whose build they think is better. Please check out the contest by clicking the link below the banner: Mocpages Group Link!!!!!! Thanks so much for viewing, I hope you choose to compete, view, or donate to this great contest, no matter what you do, I hope you come along for the ride to Mordor! To God be the Glory!!!
  9. Lego has a contest to create your own Futuristic LEGO Technic BMW motorcycle. Deadline is May 4th.
  10. Hi everybody! New edition of Brickstory by Kockice just started We're inviting all LUG members to join us in a historical adventure with our favourite bricks. Four themes and four well known judges are alone enough to make this contest awsome. But since it's a contest, few prizes are here to spice up the competitiveness. Thanks! And if any questions, don't be a stranger Good luck!
  11. Hello, this is the mask from "V for Vendetta". It´s my entry for a contest on Master-Builders The challenge is to build a face with 100 bricks or less. It would be nice if someone would join. The contest ends on 27.02.2017.
  12. An entry for the LEGO Life logo contest on Rebrick. Under each ‘stud’ on the brick, there is an 8×8 minifig scale vignette, in the same theme as the microscale build above it. I tried to represent three of the core themes of LEGO: City, Space, and Castle. This was a very enjoyable build, as I got to dabble in several themes, but it still all came together fairly quickly and easily. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  13. Built for the Vastlands Cross category of the 2017 LEGO speeder Bike Contest over on Flickr. I decided to go with a Rock Raiders theme for my bikes this year, which was great fun. We acquired several Rock Raiders figs and some dark turquoise parts at BFVA 2016, so it was good to put them to use. The Rapid Rider is well equipped for it’s trek across the vastlands, with its chrome drills ready to decimate any obstacle in it’s path. In the unlikely event a repair is needed, there are survival supplies and tools in the satchel. It also comes with retractable landing gear for easy maintenance and landing. More pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  14. This is MOC of December 2012. I built my first vignette for a Magic World of Harry Potter Contest on and it took 9th place with 15 votes. The contest task were to illustrate one scene from HP book and the base of vignette should be no more than 16x16. At that moment I had only four HP minifigures (Harry, Draco, Snape and Bellatrix) so I decided to made something more interesting than just a Potions lesson. “I only came out because Mary told me you were threatening to sleep here.” “I was. I would have done. I never meant to call you Mudblood, it just—” “Slipped out?” There was no pity in Lily’s voice. “It’s too late. I’ve made excuses for you for years. None of my friends can understand why I even talk to you. You and your precious little Death Eater friends—you see, you don’t even deny it! You don’t even deny that’s what you’re all aiming to be! You can’t wait to join You-Know-Who, can you?” He opened his mouth, but closed it without speaking. “I can’t pretend anymore. You’ve chosen your way, I’ve chosen mine.” “No—listen, I didn’t mean—” “—to call me Mudblood? But you call everyone of my birth Mudblood, Severus. Why should I be any different?” He struggled on the verge of speech, but with a contemptuous look she turned and climbed back through the portrait hole… © J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, chapter 33 The Prince's Tale. Main photo. Empty space in vignette emphasizes the distance that has arisen between the characters. Young Severus. Portrait of the Fat Lady and young Lily. Lily Evans and Severus Snape. Without minifigures. Backside view. Portrait of the Fat Lady can be raised to open the entrance to Gryffindor Tower. Lily leaves. It's too late to apologize... Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed)

  17. My 6th entry for the Colossal Castle Contest, this time in the Archery Tournament category. I enjoyed getting to use our sand green plates for the landscape. The annual horseback archery tournament in Avalonia is always a popular competition. Since Avalonian archery is generally more focused on long bow use, its usually a close contest between the four guilds.Spectator stands are placed around the range, while wooden stakes mark how close archers are allowed to get to targets. More pictures, here. Thanks for looking, comments and suggestions welcome
  18. Hello all Train MOC-ers, I'm planning to run a train-building contest in 2017. I was thinking of such a competition for one year by now, the last one I saw here was somewhere back in 2009 or something among that line. According to some of my interests in LEGO Trains, it would be a contest with quite strict rules you can read below: -MOC train should be a proportional model of a real locomotive, passenger car, freight wagon or motor unit -(I also plan to add that only a model of a real train produced in the last 15 years can be entered, as I'm interested in Epoch VI trains, but I can drop this one) -Body width should be at least 7 studs wide -Only new creation can be entered, trains already designed, train already designed but with different color scheme, train designed in LDD and published before are not allowed. On the other hand I need at least three master train builders, who could evaluate the entered creations taking into account: -Proportions and design - how close is the model to the real thing -technical solutions (interesting part usage, techniques presented) -Running (a video should be uploaded where the train runs on different geometries built from standard track pieces) If you are interested, please send me an e-mail [ ashivalkoinen at gmail . com ] with some photos of your works (references), and with the following data: -full name and best-known nickname -nationality Prices I'm living in Eastern Europe, with salaries you may estimate for an Eastern Europe country, but as a pledge I will put one set of Horizon Express and a bunch of track (either sets or in bulk). Since the contest is NOT ongoing, I gladly accept any ideas related to the contest.
  19. Voting is Open! In a galaxy far, far away a group of characters we know so well had adventures we don't know about. We've heard about Lando's maneuver at the Battle of Tanab but we've never seen it. We saw Anakin leading Clonetroopers, but did he ever lead Stormtroopers the same way? And we know Anakin and Obi-wan escaped from a nest of Gundarks, but have you ever seen a Gundark? With the upcoming Rogue One movie, we will begin to delve into some of those in-between movie stories. But why wait! Add your own story to the Star Wars Anthology and submit it for this contest. Details There will be two size categories. The small category entries can be between 0-32 studs square. The large category entries can be 32 square studs or larger. Regardless of which size category the entry falls into, all entries must include a named, non-generic Star Wars character that appears in Episodes 1-7. For example, you could not have an entry that only includes generic Stormtroopers, but you could submit an entry that focuses on FN-2199 (TR-8R). All entries must show an actual or fictional event that is set between Episodes 1-7. Fictional events can include material from the EU/Legacy, Clone Wars shows, Rebels shows, or your own imagination! Everyone may enter both categories but with only one entry per category. One entry per member and per category. You can enter both categories with different entries, but you'll be eligible to receive only one prize. Rules One entry per member and per category. You can enter both categories with different entries, but you'll be eligible to receive only one prize. The size restrictions for the small category is 0 - 32x32 studs. The size restriction for the large category is 32x32 studs or larger. The contest will run from 1st May to 1st June, 2016. As long as it's still June 1st somewhere in the world, you can still enter.

  20. I made these for the Rebrick contest for the 10th anniversary of modular buildings. The task was an interior vignette up to 16x16 studs in size which would thematically fit in any of the modular buildings. I tried to refrain as much as possible from using many ready-made items and accessories. Hotel Lobby for the Cafe Corner Baby room for Pet Shop (the building, not the store, lol)

  24. TECHNIC PNEUMATIC CONTEST By popular demand the next Eurobricks Technic Contest is all about Pneumatics. The new Volvo EW160E has been released recently, so it seems like a logical moment to focus on Pneumatics. In the past we've had several great Pneumatic models and recently we kind of lacked a nice manually operated model. TLG stepped up and released the Volvo. They even created a new hand pump for this model. So Pneumatics V2 is very much alive! DESCRIPTION Design a pneumatic model operated by one or more hand pumps and/or one or more (PF) motors powering one or more pneumatic pumps. So you can use motors as long as they are used to drive a pneumatic pump. They can't be used for other functions (not even to operate a pneumatic switch). There's no limit on the number of hand or motorized pumps and you can use. Third party hosing, strings and rubber bands are allowed. No other 3rd party parts. LEDs (and other LEGO lights) are permitted when you are using one or more motorized pumps. Since this contest is all about Technic and Pneumatic, Model Team entries are NOT allowed. A studded model is okay (like the excavator in the picture) but don't turn it into a Model Team entry. DEADLINE Deadline date is Monday 31st of October, 2016. Contest will be closed on Tuesday 1st of November, OR LATER. Disclaimer: I will close the contest when I see fit and when I have the time to process the results. This can be later than the deadline date. Please don't complain about this not being fair and all. RULES AND REGULATIONS The following section describes the contest specific and general rules and regulations. But before that, please take notice of a simple motto regarding the Eurobricks Contests: CONTESTS ARE FOR FUN! Of course there's competition, but at the end of the day, LEGO is just a hobby and the main goal for each of us is to have fun! CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Model Team entries are NOT permitted. Studded is okay, but no model team. One or more PF motors ARE permitted as long as they operate pneumatic pump(s).
