One of the most important things about if we are to do this contest once more is wait. I believe Blackmoor is rather busy with his personal life and I haven't heard from Zuloo in a long while. Not sure whether they are too busy to join. Hopefully not, I'll have no one to humiliate!  :pir-cry_sad:
Oh but I will be involved this year, perhaps even more then you wish. :pir-tongue:
It is going to be epic, and of course a big Hooray for our Commodore Hornbricker!

Are you going to try to put people who register back with their teammates from last year? I think that would be fun.

Is this a contest, where I for example make a MOC that shows how a bunch of Blue Coats win a battle against a bunch of Red Coats?

Read my sig. "FullPLASTIC Alchemist"
It means, I can turn any lego person into any substance I want to! mwahahaha!*


*actually, Im bound by certain "natural" laws, and the law of equivalent exchange....but thats another story.

Without De-railing the subject toooo much...
The process and research of alchemy is basically working towards changing one thing into another, breaking down and rebuilding.
(example, lead to gold)
The anime Fullmetal Alchemist portrays a pseudo sci-fi version of alchemy, but with alot of hidden references to the real thing...
"fullmetal" both refers to the ability to transcend ALL the elements, and is also used as a bad pun in the anime, since the main character has a metal arm.
so, my FullPlastic Alchemist is a play off of that....


...in Lego terms, I can take one lego thing(or person) and change it into something else!

OK! Back to topic! to keep us all from getting disqualified for too much chatter, I have responded to this comment, and all my other commentary/future commentary is being moved here: Pre-epmtive strike, warming up the cannons
Feel free to let any chatter run wild in this thread, since it is mine, and not part of the official tournament.  :pir_laugh2:

----------------------------------------
Now returning back to whatever it was this thread was about....

Oh yes, the prizes!!!
They are awesome!
I really hope to win the flagship.


Even if I dont win, Im having so much fun right now! Thanks to Commodore Hornbricker, and all the EB staff who are working hard to run this!
