One thing I noticed that was uncovered. Can we vote for ourselves? Or do you have to vote for other people?

Can there be another minifigure in the vignette?  My extra really just ties the whole thing together.

why oh why (just out of curiosity) are the pieces from series 2 not allowed and why are the minifigs not allowed to be shown? I really don't get the meaning for this rule. it just seems constricted without any reason.

On the other hand you make the rules and the fun of this forum, so it's fine anyhow!

thanks for putting up this great contest.

Because not everyone has Series 2 minifigures yet [they're not even available in some countries], and since building a scene relating to them is the focus of the contest, it puts everyone on level ground.

Meh, it's kinda restive, though. I.E., if I'm doing an entry for the surfer, can I replace his surfboard with another that already exists?

I have attempt to answer the questions below, even though my rules has stated clearly. Please read the rules and ask something related to the contest, especially areas which I have not covered earlier. Appreciate it very much. Thanks.

Yes, it's possible and it happens before in the previous Minifigures Series 1 contest.

No. You are not allow to vote for your own entry. The voting rules will be further explained once the categories are closed.

You can include other minifigures of any other types. I don't quite understand your question.

Yes, you are allowed. Refer to the previous contest for examples related to Category A.

Because other parts of the world have not gotten their Minifigures Series 2 and it will serve as an unfair advantage for those who owns them and used it in their entries.

Yes, you can replace his surfboard for other existing elements. No new Minifigures Series 2 elements/parts are allowed. I know what are those parts.

Wow, there are so many entries in such a short time. Participants are to take note of my comments in their respective entry. Most of the time, if you see a long comment in your entry, it means there are some adjustments that you need to do before the entry is accepted. Thanks.

Awesome contest! I really enjoyed the first one, and I'll definitely enter this one too! Especially Category B intrigues me. I have some questions though:
Can we modify the required Series 1 minifig for category B? For example, Can we change the head in order to give it a different facial expression?
Can we use a cut-out part of, say, an instructions page in our entry?
Is it OK to have a stand-in for the Series 2 fig as some have already included in their entry?

Participants, you are strongly advised to check your submitted entry for my comments. If you see my comments in your entry, it means you needs to do something about it and if you don't see any, it means you are pretty safe for now.

No, the required minifigure needs to be in the original state.

View PostOky Wan Kenobi, on 07 September 2010 - 04:36 PM, said:

This is something new? A cut out of the TLG instruction page? Personally, it will be leading towards customisation aspect, so I don't permit that.

View PostOky Wan Kenobi, on 07 September 2010 - 04:36 PM, said:

This question is in between and is stepping on the thin line. IMHO, I discourage the use of stand-in unless it's totally required but if you needs a firm answer from me, I will need to think about it first.

On another note, I just realised one of the entry is using such concept too.  :sceptic:

Aargh. None of the stores in my area ever got so much as one box of series 1! That rules out Category B for me  :hmpf_bad: .

Oh well, I can still try for category A...

It can be WIP to a large extent until the deadline gets closer (less than a week). Participants are allow to retake their photos and make adjustments to improve the overall presentation better especially picture clarity and quality.

However, if you are intending to change the entire entry concept after submission, it's best that you clear with me first and get a replacement up as soon as you can, otherwise it's not fair to others who have decided to share their entry early. Then again, I will normally reject it unless you have a strong valid reason to do so.

In this case, EB member, legowill1 has withdraw his earlier submitted entry and is working on his entry again since his entry image is very small and can't be seen which will ultimately lead to disqualification.

EB Members may feel free to drop their advise/opnions in this disucssion thread to share their thoughts on the submitted entries. Maybe you could
