I don't think I could do this justice, as although I'm fascinated by the Western theme, I don't have any minifigs that are suitable, so my scene would look a bit odd.

Really looking forward to what everyone comes up with; it's an excellent competition.   :thumbup:
Plenty of figures on Bricklink, and you have 8 weeks to build.

This truly does sound awesome and I'm sure I will enter at least one, in one of the categories.

However, I do have a question, I read the guidelines for the contest and the part about "no cutting of Bricks" caught my eye.

My question is simple, will you allow small holes to be drilled through a brick to allow small gauge wire to pass whereby bringing electrical low voltage lighting into the diorama?

You may light up your building, however not for the first picture (voting picture) presented, as this isn't a light up your MOC competition, though it may look quite nice.

So I take it the answer to my question is yes, though for my first pic the lights must be off, that may be hard to see since I am planning a Lego Box Diorama Scene. I suppose I could turn off the chandelier and the lanterns, though the effect wouldn't be the same, or perhaps I could simply remove the box and allow the sunshine in. Then, put the box back and light up my Lego eh, for the rest of the pictures?

Sorry, I meant to quote the answer to the first question here as well

Great contest.

For any Aussies, "How the West Was Won" is currently showing on GEM. It's full of interesting action to fire the imagination.

I've already done a Western Train Chase MOD based on scenes from this movie but it's disqualified because I posted it a couple of months ago.

It will be a fun challenge finding something new and interesting to take on. Good luck everyone.

For category 3, is digital minifig customization allowed? Like altering a photograph of a minifig?

Ah, but then it would defeat the purpose of making a custom figure  :wink: Since we have said no digital entries it wouldn't qualify for judging, sorry.

This is fine for categories 1 and 2, but its hard to make a custom figure in micro scale. If you want to build a town or train in macro scale, then it will be huge! Might have trouble building a town on 64x64 though  :wink:

Custom figures for Cat 3 should be minifig scale, rules updated.
I'm afraid I don't quite understand you.
Category two is town, and it wouldn't be a problem to build it in micro scale, while building
custom figure in micro scale would be more than a problem. So is that a typo, or
micro scale town really wouldn't be allowed, but different sizes of custom figure would be allowed?

I couldn't find anything new in rules. :blush:

It's been a long time since I participated in a EB contest, and I like the theme of this one, Do you already know what will be the deadline ? I might build something but It'll take me more than one month I think.

I've got a question regarding the 3rd category, as for the Vignette I would like to build, I'd like to use a minifig I've already built here.
As this is a Spaghetti Western competition, I want to build a vignette from the Spaghetti Western that is the most famous, The Good The Bad and The Ugly. Having already built the Eastwood minifig I would like to use, would my entry still be valid? The actual Vignette will of corse be original, but I would prefer for the Eastwood minifig to remain the same.
Legorski,

Well get cracking then, everyone gets 2 months but you only get one, ok? :tongue:

I see no problem with this as flex comes in many lengths already, go for it.

Legorski,
Only newly created figures or creations allowed, this competition is about building new entries, not recycling unfortunately.

Just a quick question, if I was to build a large town based on a movie, would a certain Deloreon time machine look too out of place, if you get what I'm saying?

I still don't understand... :blush:

Few times word figure is mentioned. If you say figure that could be figure in any size.
If it's clearly stated minifigure, I understand, but this way...

So please, just say, in which category minifig scale is needed to qualify, and in which category
scale doesn't matter. Please, it's easier for everyone. :classic:

Everythign iscrystal clear now, thank you.

Answer to the post above mine: That's interesting. Fabuland figs are also treated as minifigures.
Now I want some of them. :cry_sad:
