Unfortunately, my model was rejected from LEGO due to a "trademark violation." "MX-2" yielded many hits on Google, and it probably tipped off the moderators. I tried again--this time, I changed the box name to "LEGO-2 Rover." Hopefully that will pass moderation. Thankfully, my free shipping code still worked.

I don't believe it--LEGO rejected my model AGAIN!!!
I suppose I'll try one more time...
Free shipping code failed! Time to call Customer Service!
Customer Service was nice enough to tell me that my model was rejected the second time due to "Exploration Rover" in the file name. I have changed the Shop at Home link for the benefit of everyone who wants to click the link and order my model. Also, Customer Service told me that I will get free shipping on this model if the moderators approve of it.
A third rejection!? My model might be cursed! Then again, another Customer Service representative advised me to be as generic as possible--not even the word "Rover" should be used due to a potential conflict with NASA.
I changed the model name to "My Model," the box template name to "My Box", and the background from the one used on Star Justice and Space Skulls (I think it's the same background, and it was in their Box Designer, so if it's copyrighted, it's their fault) to a snowy background with stars. Now my model looks sort of like an Ice Planet 2002 set.
My box also lacks a title to hopefully avoid more conflicts. As with the previous incident, shipping will be waived. If I rejected again though, I'll just do a Pick A Brick order--with no box.
At last, I am happy to report that my "Design byME brick-list was just transferred to [LEGO's] picking-plant!" (Picking-plant? I think it's a strange name, but I'm cool with it) Now all I have to do is wait, and hope my rover makes it past all that volcanic ash!
The MX-2 Rover has safely landed at my house!
I should have photos up soon, but I encountered 2 major issues with my model:
1.) I accidentally left out a "TECHNIC Plate 2x4 With 3 Holes" behind the Atlantis Green slope in the front. I had to take another of that part from the model and use an ordinary 2x4 plate in its place.
2.) The little Atlantis Green bulb cannot fit into the front radar dish. I
have thought about using
used glue to keep that part in place. In addition, the radar dish itself is a little loose.
