My recent Star Wars MOC (you can see here) would fit this contest. Now I need to come up with a better idea.

Custom Minifigures and weapons are allowed?  :wacko:
Wouldn't that be more of an advantage to those who have them?

If you compare to those who doesn't, then yes. :sceptic:
Advantages are everywhere.
If you have a zillion bricks, then the odds are that you'll do better than if you only have ten, wouldn't you say?

What's your point?

Size is max 48x48, so yeah it can be smaller, even down to 1x1 though I wouldn't recommend that :grin:
