This will surely be interesting. I may or (more likely) may not enter, but I have one question:

To Xmasify an official set, can you just re-color parts of that set, while still using the correct parts? Or would that no longer be an 'official' set? Example; Replace a black 2x4 brick with a red 2x4 brick in the set.

By landspeeder, do you mean Luke's Landspeeder or any kind of speeder? (EDIT: cralegoboy beat to it.) Do speederbikes count? How about Podracers?
For the third category, are we allowed to modify the official set or should we just add stuff on to it? If can modify it, to which extend?
Do the entries have to be minifig-scale?



May the holiday spirit be with you, everyone! :yoda:

Well I made a really good landspeeder a few months ago. I never shared it because my photography always brings the MOC down. I might try one of these..

I could really go an Xmasify a set real well... but I kind of don't want to buy anything new or ruin anything old. :tongue:

Ooh, thanks Kim and Stash! I'll be making a new version of m raffle entry (hopefully much better than that last minute thing...) for the vignette. And hopefully I'll be able to join the other two categories as well.

Booger540 asked:       To Xmasify an official set, can you just re-color parts of that set, while still using the correct parts? Or would that no longer be an 'official' set? Example; Replace a black 2x4 brick with a red 2x4 brick in the set.
Yes, recoloring a set in, holiday colors, would qualify as “holiday spirit.”

Cralegoboy asked:      Sounds interesting!  By 'Landspeeder' , do you mean in the style of Luke's landspeeder?
After looking over the descriptions of Landspeeders, Airspeeders, Speeder Bikes, and Swoops on Wookiepedia…Yes, we are referring to the Landspeeders, which are similar to Luke’s Landspeeder.  Speeder Bikes do not count.  Pod Racers do not count.

Oky Wan Kenobi asked:     For the third category, are we allowed to modify the official set or should we just add stuff on to it? If can modify it, to which extend?
I think this depends on your description of the word ‘modify.’  If you have a specific question, feel free to PM KimT or myself and we will get back to you.

Oky Wan Kenobi asked:     Do the entries have to be minifig-scale?
Nope, they do not have to be minifig scaled.

Cralegoboy asked:       Anywho, can the vignette be smaller than 16x16?
Nope, the directions say, “Build a 16x16 vignette - no overhang.”

CommanderFox asked:     Can we make entries for each catagory?
“Only one entry per member per category.”  There are three categories, and you can make one entry per category.  Therefore, you can make an entry for each category.  That gives you a total of three entries!

Adding stuff and removing stuff is modifying which is allowed.
To which extend? Not soo much that the set changes into another set or becomes unrecognizable (?).
The voters will judge wether or not you overdid the modding.

Go ahead and add some colourfull reindeer sculptures to the walls of Cloud City and a X-mas party inside the UCS Millenium Falcon.
