  10. Category 8A Entries are to be posted in this topic.

Members who joined prior to the start of the contest will then be able to post how they wish to use their 3 points to vote for the entries they like best.

Ok, here is my entry. It's for the Diver. Theme could be City or Action.

Sam and Max ( :wink: ) found an old diving suit at a garage sale. They bought it cheap complete with an air compressor to fill the suit with fresh healthy air.

Both guys wanted to try out the suit immediately. They drove to the harbour and went to an empty landing stage. Sam put the suit on while Max was operationg the compressor. After Sam jumped into the water, Max was confronted with a lethal surprise. The compressor tube ripped from the helmet and leaves poor Sam in a heavy diving suit at the bottom of the cold dark sea :devil:

Overall shot of the scene.


Max with the faulty compressor.


I guess some other interesting things happend at this landing stage.

My entry: "DJ Brickmaster's Boardwalk Party"

Minifig: The DJ

Theme: City

It's a Saturday night, and KLGO radio is hosting an all-night dance-off down at the Lego City boardwalk! A pair of contestants has come out and has been dancing for hours. Which one of them will drop first? The DJ has a supply of records to keep this party going until someone wins!


Here's a photo without the figures so you can get a better view of the speakers and turntable. For the record--see what I did there?--that's the record from the Monster Fighters Haunted House, not the DJ. You can just see the storage slot for the extra records and album covers--including the DJ's--behind the left speaker.


Update: Here's a close-up of the turntable itself. (Again, note that this is the Monster Fighters record.)


Click here and here for a photo with the DJ at his turntable!

Minifig: Vampire Bat

Theme: Monster Fighters

You know that Vampires need blood, they live for blood and they are always looking for blood. That's the reason why Lord Vampyre decided to open his wellness center for vampires. Upstairs there's the room for blood cocktail transfusions and free massage, while downstairs the blood dried bodies are left, waiting to become zombies!

What a business and how many sadisfied vampire-clients!

Title: Santa's Workshop

Minifigure: Santa

Theme: Town

Every year Santa and his elves make all of the toys that kids put on their wish lists. This corner worksop comes right out of the North Pole and has everything Santa needs to make toys. He has a wrench, hammer, chainsaw, comfortable chair, map of the world, and of course, an extra beard in case something goes terribly wrong.


Two presents have already been wrapped and put up on the top shelf until Christmas. The brown treasure chest holds some other presents that won't be seen till December.


The red cupboard is open to reveal the little widgets Santa needs to make all of the toys. At the moment, he is working on a bright red car!


Some fire in a barrel is aflame in the corner to keep the workshop warm. Thanks for viewing my entry; I hope you enjoyed it.

To see a photo with Santa in the vignette, visit my flickr; you can see my other entries there, too.

Minifig: Alien Villainess

Theme: Space

She's the only female alien I have seen... So my theory is that she's not just any villainess, but in fact the queen of her own alien hive. And what is a queen without a throne and her own personal little alien servants?
