Celebrate FABULAND Month by creating an original story with your own FABULAND character!

The Idea

Will your story be about where your character comes from? Were they part of a brave adventure? Did they do something funny that gave them notoriety in the world of Fabuland? Write us an original story and tell it in LEGO form in our Brick Flicks & Comics Forum.

The Rules
  • Entries must be posted by midnight UTC, March 31st, 2013.
  • One entry per member.
  • Entries should be new (never posted anywhere previously) and be FABULAND-themed: no crossover or licensed entries in this contest.
  • All entries are to include only real LEGO elements. 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 Brick Flicks & Comics forum. The title of the topic should begin with "FABULAND Story: " and then give the name of the entry.
  • Your entry can be either a comic or a Brick Flick.
  • 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.
  • Please include a banner or still to represent your story in the voting thread. All stories and films will be linked to in the voting thread.

Hm... this will be tough without any photoshopping. Can we at least edit in speech bubbles and such? Also, can the 5 pictures be composed of multiple pictures/panels like a comic book page?

5 pictures is a strange limit for a comic type competition ... hope it's a copy paste error as well as Photoshop editing :D

Ah, that makes a lot more sense, thanks. :grin: One more question: Does our story have to be in the same innocent tone as Fabuland or can it also be about something like, say, murder? :devil:

In the academy? Not in the main Brick Flicks & Comics forum?

I thought you changed that, DarkDragon. I must've mistyped it. :blush: Roops. I'll fix it.

One question. This is my entry for the Fabutar contest. Can I use this figure in the story, despite it having plenty of "cutting, sculpting or modifying"? No other bricks will be violated! :grin:

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! ) :classic:

Um...good question. I suppose, I would tell the story in the panels more. Combine the paragraphs and the pictures to make it more of a comic. The Penguin himself is pretty butchered, but that's your own custom, right?

But of course! I'm almost insulted! :oh:

Seriously speaking, thanks a lot for the answer! I'll be making a story about him then.

I am not sure if we are also expected to 'register' our contest submission within this thread. This is just in case:
