Forbidden Animal Planet
With the release of all the new Friends animals - Eurobricks has decided to create our own Sci-Fi theme in the form of a Contest! The idea is take a stock LEGO animal and Sci-Fi it.
So simply take the minifig out and put an animal in, all the while seamlessly combining it into a Sci-Fi MOC! Will you build a Monkey Mech? or a Steam Punk Snake Pirate Ship? or a Scorpion Space Station? or Retro Sci-Fi Rat Rocket? or Time Traveling T-Rex's Transformer? or Frankenstein Frogs? or Dystopian Dogs City?
Still don't have an idea on what to build?
Well take a spin on the Eurobricks Animal Planet Randomizer™:
- Entries must prominently feature a complete LEGO Animal (anything listed under Animal on Bricklink counts!) in a Sci-Fi setting. Humans are still allowed in the MOC, but as secondary characters (such as fleeing, backrubbers, food... etc)
- Minifig based animals (such as CMF Dinosaur or Ape) are considered secondary character and do not count towards the LEGO Animal
- One entry per member.
- Entries should be new (never posted anywhere previously) and be between 16x16 and 48x48. Your imagination is your only height limit.
- Entries must be posted by midnight anytime on Earth, January 31st. Voting will last 7 days after close.
- All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed.
- Decals will be allowed if you've made them yourself, but no cutting, sculpting or modifying parts.
- Entries are to be placed in their own entry topic in the Sci-Fi forum. The title of the topic should begin with "FAPC:" and then give the name of the entry.
- Upload your images onto a dedicated image hosting websites such as Brickshelf, Flickr, etc. Do not use Eurobricks attachment to upload your images.
- The entry post (first post in your entry topic) may be edited at any time up to the end of the contest, so feel free to make improvements if you wish.
- Entries are to consist of no more than 3 posted pictures of 800x600 or smaller resolution but may also include a link to a folder of additional images of any size.
- In the event of a tie, the Staff will vote to decide the winner(s) and all Staff decisions are final.
- First Place: 70705 Bug Obliterator (Donated by TLG) + 1st choice of FAPC Trophy + Sci-FI Tag
- Second Place: 70704 Vermin Vaporizer + 2nd choice of FAPC Trophy + Sci-Fi Tag
