Did I say it had to be Star Wars related?
Read the simple rules :tongue:

No it doesn't have to be SW related.
All it needs is what I stated in the raffle post.

  • Are you going to be picky about the eligibility of the entries? For example, are you going to disqualify entries that don't have enough M's and/or O's in the title? :tongue:
  • Wasn't it obvious I would post in this topic? :grin:

I can answer those! :tongue:

1. Of course he is. It is mandatory for you to have at least eleventy billion Os and Ms in each word. (As you can see, I miss Kids Next Door. :grin: )
2. No, that was the last thing on my mind.

I have questions.

Is it the rarer I get, the better entry I have? :pir-grin:
Are 1x1 cones allowed to represent chrome eggs?

Yeah, what does this mean? Surely some bricks as long as studs not showing can hang a little? No?. =-) :cry_happy:

It means the pieces can't hang over the 8x8. Though I think minifig heads are an exception because they are rounder than normal studs.

"No overhang" Means you cant have bricks hanging over the base (8x8). Im sure its fine for minifigs to be over (like hands or a lightsabre or whatever.)

I'll allow a little overhang - I just don't want an 8x8 base with a 100x100 model on top of it.
If you know what I mean?
All entries so far are looking good.

Oh yeah and it's just one entry per member of course.

A couple of people have actually used chrome vaders in their entries, so if they're allowed, you should be.  :wink:

Two people did. But isn´t the point of this to give the people who don´t own a chrome vader the chance to get one?

That's a very nice vignette, but please read these tutorials on how to resize images. The maximum size for images is 800 x 600. 640 x 480 is the preferred size.
