Readers of the Eurobricks Star Wars Forum Blog may have noticed the MOCs shown in the banner. These are what we're calling Showcased MOCs. At the end of each month, the Rebel Bloggers pick out a few MOCs from among those posted in that month, and they are showcased in the banner for the duration of the next month. (after a PM conversation asking the builder's permission to use their images and MOCs, of course)

  • All new MOCs (not old MOCs reposted from another site) posted on Eurobricks during a month are eligible for selection as a Showcased MOC for the next month.
  • MOCs must have been posted by the builder, not by another member (no flickr finds, Brickshelf finds, etc.), in order to be eligible for selection as a Showcased MOC.
  • All eligible MOCs are automatically considered by the Rebel Bloggers.
  • There are no limitations concerning the era or canonicity of an MOC in the Star Wars universe.
  • Only one MOC may be showcased per builder per month.

Thanks for taking the initiative to do this Doc! Ever since it's implementation last month I've found it to be a very refreshing aspect of the blog, seeing those wonderful MOCs featured as the blog banners which constantly change by the hour. I hope am sure this will encourage more high-quality builds in the coming months, not that we lack it as we've seen a steady influx of fantastic creations from our dedicated SW builders, but as they say the more the merrier! Keep up the good work with these banners Doc and to the MOCers who continually share their creations, great job and thank you! :thumbup:

Just a minor question that I've always been curious about, how often does the banner change? Every hour? Half-hour? Every refresh of the page?

Every refresh, but it's randomized, so there's no set sequence. You could refresh and end up with the same banner as before.

Ever since Doc e-mailed me about using my Trash Compactor moc, I thought this was a great idea! :thumbup: Nothing like the hope of having your build on the front page to get builders to really try their best. :classic:

Thanks again for picking my wampa cave as a spotlighted MOC. This should give everyone incentive to build more Star Wars.

I know it does for me! :classic:

Seeing the new MOCs in the banner, I can't help but think that Hollander's A-wing looks rather odd without a pilot in that shot.

I could believe a customized unmanned remote controlled A-Wing fighter (like real-life UAV drones) but never a Gunship without pilots. :sick: :grin:

My thought. Although I can't change the showcased model anymore, I can change the current file. I think a minifigure pilot would look way to small however, and make this look even more odd. A  brickbuilt pilot would be a solution, but that would be really hard to create if you ask me. Too hard actually, especially in LDD. Maybe we can M<0><0<DSWIM for a solution...?  :blush:

The Showcased MOCs of February 2012 are here!

Posted Image
Firstly, Naboo Starfighter Bay, an example of the modular Star Wars concept from ACPin

Secondly, Battle Droids and STAP (Moodland-scale), an excellent piece of shaping and articulation by Moodswim

Posted Image
And, finally, ANH Deleted Scene, a small shelf display by Praiter Yed that has an incredibly cute purist custom Treadwell droid and a beautifully detailed moisture vaporator. (I also think it's one of my best works in Photoshop :wub: )

I love these, while my only gripe is that with 501st Commando, the hanger was the star of the show, but you can't really see it in that pic. Although that would be hard to capture.

Yeah, I tried to show more of it, but the dimensions of the hangar made it impossible. This was the best shot in which you could get a good idea of some action.

Well, it took you a while, but at last you got them done, and they look good as always. :classic: Although I would have zoomed in on the Emperor in that second one so as to not cover his eyes with the title (and not have the Skywalkers' heads stick out from the bottom like that).

I was trying to capture the whole of the scene so it didn't just look like a throne room diorama. (it is entitled "Final Duel")

Oh, yes, it is. I had PMed you, and you didn't respond immediately, so your banned didn't go up until halfway through the month, after I'd indexed the banners, so I forgot to add it here. I'm in a rush right now; I'll get it up later today. :classic:
