Build an 8x8 vignette from any theme where you could display any of the 16 new Collectable Minifigures from Series 5. It can be Town, Medieval or even Space. As long you are able to relate the chosen theme and minifigures to your audience, then you are on the right track.

Where would you display one of these in Category A?

  • A reasonable overhang is allowed to accommodate tree limbs or minifigures accessories, but may not exceed more than 2 studs outside the base.
  • You may use the same type of minifigure in both categories.
  • This is a building contest. Be creative. Any themes are allowed as long you are able to relate the vignette for the minifigure which you are building for.  
  • No Series 5 minifigures are required. You don't need to own the figure to create a home for it, and it will not improve your chances if you do. You may not include the official minifigure or it's new accessories/parts from Series 5 in your official entry pictures. You may use older accessories, but not new ones from Series 5 like the violin case, graduation gown, axe, pie, etc, for example.

  • No placeholder minifigure (Series 5) can be used to reflect the actual positioning in the entry.
  • There is no parts limit as long as it all fits within the vignette.
  • Entries are to be posted in this topic.
  • One entry per person. An entry must include a picture (no larger than 800x600) showing the vignette without the minifigure you built it for. Include the name (type) of that minifigure and the theme that you have done. Other minifigures may appear in the pictures. You may include up to 2 more images following the same rules. If you choose to take additional pictures, you may link to an outside gallery.
  • Digital backgrounds are allowed.
  • No LDD entries.
  • Upload your images onto those dedicated image hosting websites such as Brickshelf, Flickr, etc. Do not use Eurobricks attachment to upload your images.
  • No webcam or cellphone camera images can be used for the submitted entry. It must be taken in a clean and decent background with enough brightness to show the beauty of your entry.

This is my entry.  It is for the detective figure.  It is the detective's cramped study from the 1800s.  He is just starting out in his profession, so he is not that rich or prestigious and has to settle for a cramped, one room London apartment.  The theme is history.

The minifig this is made for is the gangster figure, I tried to make an opulent bathroom where there is no such thing as too much bling...

I hope I understood the rules correctly. :)

This is set for the mobster minifig, standing in the middle two studs, pushing Lil' Vinnie, and holding his case behind his back.

Here's my meta entry. I'd originally built it for the Series 4 contest (obviously with an orange bag instead of the blue), but ran out of time to enter it.

Billy has finally gotten around to buying a Series 5 pack. Oh, the excitement!
Posted Image

Billy pours the contents of the bag onto the table. Which figure did he get?

(A few more pictures can be found here)

Minifigure: The packet hasn't been opened yet, so I'm not sure. Having thoroughly felt it though, I have a feeling it's going to be the Zookeeper. :wink:

Title: Who killed Mr. Black? (Clue/Cluedo)
Theme: Victorian/boardgames
Minifig: Detective

When I was young I liked to play a board game called Clue/Cluedo, where you have to find out who killed mr. Black, where he was killed and what weapon was used.  The game is set in an old Victorian house and you examine the different rooms of the house looking for clues.   In this vignette I decided to depict two rooms: the Hall and the Library with couch.  Here you see Mr. Black lying in the Hall.  Upstairs is the library. (more pics will be added)

Posted Image

Here's a picture that only includes the building itself:

A picture of the furniture and Mr. Black:

Bonus pic: It was that dreaded Ms. Peacock who did it and she used the knife (see: http://www.brickshel...te/img_1704.jpg when public).

Time to ride the lifts!  To me, that's one of the best parts about skiing/snowboard, anyway.  However, it's preferable to stay away from the trees.   *oh2*

Someone has already posted something similar, but anyway, here is my version of the ski lift.

Theme: Town
Minifig: Snowboarder

The ski resort was closed due to works. Unfortunately, snowboarders must walk to the top. Nevermind, this is a fitness workout.  :classic:

Hello all. Here is my contest entry. I hope I'm not breaking the rules here, but apparently we can post up to 3 pictures of our entry in this topic? Well, my entry is so tall (it's 2"8!) I split it across 2 images. Please let me know if this isn't ok!

Theme: Fantasy
Minifig: Evil Dwarf

I have built a cross-section of land, to feature the evil Dwarf in his mine.

Posted Image

At the top we have a Crown Knight going about his usual patrol, passing by an apple tree. Beneath him we can see a few secrets buried in the earth.

Posted Image

Further down there is a mining tunnel with rails for a mine cart, though it seems to be abandoned as a slight cave-in has occurred. Even further is the cavernous area where the evil dwarf mines for precious gemstones. Finally there is a vein of lava (probably where most of the gems were formed in the first place).

Posted Image

A closer view of the evil dwarf's mining area. He's going to make a fortune selling those beauties!

More pictures can be seen on my Brickshelf gallery.

Title:  Reichenbach Falls or Moriarty Meets His Doom.
Theme: Literary Scene
Minifigure: The Detective (Sherlock Holmes) would be on the stud left on the top of the rock face.

Posted Image

In the story "The Final Problem", Holmes tracks his arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty to Switzerland and follows him to the top of Reichenbach Falls.  At the top, the two decide to fight to the death.  Minutes later, Dr. Watson (who was tricked by Moriarty into being absent for the battle) comes upon the spot and sees the area where the two struggled and sees no footsteps leading back down from the edge of the cliff.  Watson assumes both went over the side to their death and he returns to England alone.  Years later, it is revealed that Holmes survived the encounter and only faked his death to avoid Moriarty's henchmen.

(Sir Arthur Conan Doyle actually intended Holmes to perish in the battle with Moriarty but with a lot of pressure from both publishers and readers performed what could be considered the first "retcon", allowing Holmes to live to solve many other crimes.)

Picture with Sherlock can be found here on my Flickr.

Here is my entry for Category A!

I chose to use the Egyptian Queen remembering the story of Moses, and how he was floated down the Nile in basket and ended up at the palace to then be raised by the Queen and Pharaoh.  So this scene depicts the the basket washing up at one of the Palaces that sits beside the Nile.  Picture the Queen standing there bending down to pick up the infant.
