Voting is now open!

So what do you think would happen if Disney bought the rights to Marvel? Oh wait, that did happen. Well what if they bought the rights to Star Wars? Oh yeah, that happened too. So I guess the only possible outcome would be…

Star Wars vs. Marvel: Disney Showdown!

While the Star Wars and Marvel universes exist independently of each other, their fans do not! This is your chance to show, in Lego form, what would happen if Marvel and Star Wars met. This encounter can happen within the Marvel universe or on any of the Star Wars planets. You are not required to come up with any kind of explanation as to why these two universes have collided. Just have fun with the possibilities!


Category A – Conflict:

Show what would happen if the good guys and villains of Marvel and Star Wars met. This build should be all about the conflict, so make it fierce! This build should also be clearly about good guys vs. bad guys. You can have one good guy vs. one bad guy, one character vs. a group, or two groups facing off against each other. You should choose either Star Wars or Marvel characters for the good guys, and then the opposite universe for the bad guys. For example, you can show Luke Skywalker facing down an army of Hydra agents, or the Fantastic Four fighting Darth Vader; but you can’t have the Jedi Council teaming up with the Avengers to fight the Sinister Six. Teamwork builds should be reserved for Cat. B. Size limit is 64x64.

Category B – Teamwork:

Show what would happen if the good guys or the villains of Marvel and Star Wars teamed up. The focus of this build should about the teamwork between good guys from Star Wars and Marvel or the bad guys. You can include this alliance working against one foe, but the focus of the build should be about how the two groups work together. For example, you can show how Spiderman and Daredevil would get along with Qui-gon and Obi-wan and show them taking down Kingpin, but the emphasis of the build should be them working together. Or you could show how Count Dooku and Modok would work together and you could having them torturing Anakin Skywalker, but you shouldn’t have them taking on the entire clone army. You could also just show stressed the team work would be such as if Red Skull, Doctor Doom, and Modok tried to team up with Bossk, Boba Fett, and Dengar. Size limit is 64x64.


Rules

  • One entry per member and per category. You can enter all categories with different entries, but you'll be eligible to receive only one prize.
  • The size restrictions for both categories is 64x64 studs.
  • The contest will run from 1st June to 1st July, 2015. As long as it's still July 1st somewhere in the world, you can still enter.
  • Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified.
  • This contest is open to all EB members, even if they joined EB after the contest has begun, with the exception of the Star Wars and Licensed staff, who are not eligible to win prizes.
  • All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to being entered in the contest. You may be asked by a staff member to change your entry if it is too similar to an earlier creation.
  • All entries must be built from real LEGO. No clone brands, no third-party custom parts. Digital entries will be allowed. All digital entries must use only existing pieces in existing colors.
  • All entries must be posted as a new topic in the Watto’s Junkyard forum, the title prefixed by, "[sWvsM] – category - entry name". (For example, "[sWvsM] – Cat. A – Hulk Smashing the Imperials".) A link must also be included in this thread for your entry to count.
  • Post pictures no larger than 800x640, but you may link to bigger pictures.
  • You may do a 'full-blown photo edit' with all the text, effects, background compositing, support erasing, and other effects on one picture. All your other pictures may have no editing other than color adjustment or background removal for a solid-color background. For obvious reasons, any photo editing that changes the shape, functionality, or color (not tint or adjustment, but actual color) of a LEGO piece is prohibited. It is also prohibited to use the Lego logo in any picture.
  • All entries are considered WIPs (Works In Progress) until the deadline passes. Until the deadline has passed, you are allowed to change and improve your MOC.
  • For each category, EB staff will make a first selection, and then EB members will vote for their favorite entry among that selection.


Prizes

  • First place in Cat. A will win 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina
  • First place in Cat. B will win 76032 The Avengers Quinjet City Chase

Is it MCU only or are the x-men allowed in as well?

Wow, another great contest! Not sure if I'll have time to enter, but this seems right up my alley! :sweet:

I don't suppose I can just re-enter my entry from the Future of Star Wars contest? :tongue:

So... no Deadpool and Dooku fighting some clones?

As long as the emphasis is about them working together and not about how big a clone army they are facing it's okay.

I just want to say thanks for these contests! Great fun. I joined the forums too late to enter the SWBP contest and would have enjoyed that. This one is really cool too but my favorite idea uses Phoenix and I can't afford that figure (lol), get a representation of her in LDD, or use a custom version of her. I may come up with another idea I want to pursue, but my main point is thanks for the contests and I hope they continue.

Thanks! Thanks to Darats and NathanR I can now successfully render on my Mac. Possibly I can enter one after all if I can figure out how to get special minifigures in there. I'll build a physical collection again though and enter one sooner or later. I've been abusing browsing Bricklink so I have a few parts and minis. :wink:

Could I have Darth Vader + Stormtroopers and Loki + Chitauri fighting avengers?

That's starting to abuse the rules. I think that would make a very cool MOC, but it would have to be for something besides this contest.

That's cool. I knew it was a long shot. Good thing I have more... simpler ideas.

Thank you for understanding! The reason for that restriction is so that this contest doesn't become a fig army display rather than a contest of skill.

what about a team up of more neutral people who would probably get along great but are on differing sides in their own universes. I'd like to mash up Star Lord and his crew with Fett and some other hunters all trying to take down a specific Villain (wont say whom yet)

As long as the emphasis of the build is on the Gaurdians and the bounty hunters working together then that's fine!
