That sounds like a great idea, I will most definitely give it a try, even though I have no idea on what to build so far.
Well, I guess I can come up with something.... :tongue:

[*]Only one entry per member.

It's tempting to make two sets, like the other battle packs, there is always an opposite battle back, good and evil.

KimT, I don't know if this has been asked before, but:

If somebody already posted their entry of a particular species, are we allowed to post our entry about that same species?

Sorry, if this is a bad question, but it is allowed to create fantasy vehicles or must it be a vehicle from the films or the expanded universe?

Fantasy?

If you mean as in "made up", then of course you may do so.

  • No large parts - it's a Battle Pack and should resemble existing BP's in size and contents.
So the pieces HAVE to be from BPs, or just not big pieces?

They don't have to be from BPs, but in terms of part selection, they should fit in with the style of a BP. E.G. no BURPs or other very large bricks, no huge and juniorised "crater" baseplates, etc. etc. Make a small vehicle in the style of a BP and you'll be fine.  :wink:

There is only one ever made.

If you've cared to read the announcing of the winners, then you'd know that the one who won this particular prize said he didn't want it as he was in it for the contest and not the prize.

I had the idea to do a Geonosian Battle Pack, but an hour later I noticed that Rocky already made one. Am I allowed to make one as long as it's different, or does each battle-pack have to be a unique idea?

Thanks in advance,

(Sorry if this has been asked before.)

Yes, it has been asked, and the answer is yes, you may make a battle pack of one that has been made by someone else; race, species, faction, team, whatever.  No one has the exclusive rights to anything.   Except maybe George Lucas.

Well I assume you're allowed to make one, don't be discouraged just because Rocky posted his first. You can get inspiration from his, but naturally a downright blatant copy would be frowned upon.

One can't expect everyone to post a totally unique idea, I expect to see at least a few Battle Packs that have the same species/side in them, but certainly not an attempt to copy another one's vehicle.
