OK, hard decision: enter a small entry, but more chance of winning and the 1st prize is smaller, or a big entry with less chance of winning, but better prize, so what to choose???

You can enter both categories. :wink:

Yes, as long as they're related to Star Wars.

Main Category

In this category, there is no size limitation. You can build anything you want that relates to the theme. However, keep in mind that size is not as important as quality.

Maybe the prize should go to the second place, and not the first (aka ACPin) :grin:

Just a question here, but if only one entry is allowed, and people can enter small items in the large category.....why would they enter the small category of competition?

Should the large category not be restricted to 16x16 and larger?


                          OR

Maybe small should be defined as small vignettes  16x16 and minis , anything else would be large and then allow a person one entry to EACH category?
When I die, I just hope my wife does not sell my Lego collection for what I have "told" her I have spent on it :)

You can, but remember that you're creating something that you think will happen in the new movie(s), so the in-universe story that your MOC is telling shouldn't be from an existing canon publication.

I'm sure that there will be more entries in the large category, so if you're making a small entry, you have a choice: you can either go up against the big MOCs for a chance at the big prize, or you can enter the smaller category for what will probably be a better chance of winning (or at least a level playing field in terms of size of entries), but for a smaller prize.

The goal here was to give the builders who don't have a lot of bricks/like to build small a better chance to win, but at the same time not limit the builders who like to go big. If you're building a smaller entry, we wanted to give you an alternative if you prefer to compete against MOCs of the same size.

And can we do like a picture off Wikipedia in Lego?

The subject of the contest is to build something that you think will happen in the new movies, which are new, original stories. You are supposed to use your imagination to come up with something similarly new and original that you think will be in the new movies.

OK, tnx Brickdoctor wasn't sure, there was a picture that I wanted to recreate, but I guess I will have to think up an other idea....

They say it on the list of rules, last line.
I think Darth Vader plays with LEGO when the Emperor isn't looking.

No, you don't have to make a WIP topic. What the rule means is that until the deadline for entry passes, all the entries are considered WIPs (whether they are are posted as WIPs or not), so you can make changes to your entry until the deadline has passed.

Aha, thanks. I understand that part now. Some of us do have limited parts, so this is therefore a great way to be able to still compete, considering all entries have to be brickbuilt. Thank you for the clarity ;)

Wow, very exciting contest and an awesome prize pool.

"...keep in mind that size is not as important as quality."

It's worth remembering that some of the best LEGO creations are really wee, so don't be daunted by going head to head with some of the large scale builders if like me you have a limited selection of parts and most importantly, space!

Can't wait to see what entries start rolling in. Maybe the Star Wars 7 creative team will find inspiration on these very  pages! :D
