I have a question regarding Mad Max in general, I did not see the movies.  

Are the vehicles weaponized or are they just a weird combination of vehicles to make a more capable vehicle?

Depending on the answer, should this contest focus on a true Mad Max style car OR a general post-apocalyptic vehicle?

If you go on YouTube and search for Mad Max Fury Road that should show you some in the trailer from the recent film. Or search Mad Max PlayStation vehicles again on YouTube and that will show cars from the computer game.

the vehicles are odd ... some are multiple vehicles joined together, some have massive engines and wheels, some are covered in spikes

sorry for not finding the links I’m still at my desk in work

When I started designing I only skimmed the rules so missed the part about no cutting... however now my tank has an auto loading, shell ejecting, case powered spear launcher; perfect fit for a mad max theme. (I'm using the new(ish) style spring launchers which are almost worthless on bricklink  even with 3 pieces and one being a spring). A good idea for mad max is always repurpose, no tracked vehicles then build one with cut up car chassis hence double wishbone suspended tracks. Mad max also seams to lack building and food equipment, time for the offscreen vehicles to make an appearance?

Just out of curiosity, @Jim, you said that modding a set was frowned upon. What if someone took several different sets and combined them. That is how the vehicles of mad max were actually built, right? Say, someone took the body of 42050 and placed it on the chassis of 9398, with the tow boom of 8285 sticking out the back. That would not necessarily be a moc, but would not be a mod either.

Just out of curiosity; what do you think my answer will be? :wink:

I am guessing that it would be fine, but I am still going to finish my tracked snow dune flying buggy. Still need to come up with a name for it.

Your guess was wrong. A contest is not about copying (un)official models. Please come up with something original.

Sorry, I am still somewhat new here. I have my own MOC over 95% done, and it is 1% copied from an official set. I stole the zoomie headers from Emmett's escape buggy.

I can live with 1% copy :wink: 

Remember that your MOC can’t have been posted somewhere before the contest.

Wow time has gone by fast, I just realized the last MOC I built was for TC15, and that was about a year ago! *huh*

Hopefully I'll have time to enter, I've got a few nice ideas this time... :sweet:
