  1. What samurai-turtle said is correct, the .1MB limit is only for images that you directly upload to Eurobricks, which uploads that image to our server (hence why there is a limit.) Just simply copy and pasting the image will get around that.
  2. On the contrary, I think April 1st is a great day to have released this contest- anyone who sees this thinks it's an April Fools joke, and with so many April Fools jokes I think "That is so ridiculous and yet I wish it was real." In this case, it is absolutely real, and that's the best part about it. (And to think that @Kingriedak thought the surprise we were planning was just going to be a new review or banner or something ) Besides, I wouldn't have said "This is NOT an April Fools joke" only to turn around and actually have it be a joke..there's no fun in that.
  3. Normally our competition have this rule in place to prevent members from joining solely to enter the contest and then disappearing- however in this case, I am going to revert back to the rule that we had used in the Battle For the Golden Mask competition and allow anyone to enter regardless of when they have joined, hopefully you will engage further in our forums and be more than just lurkers! I look forward to seeing your entries.
  4. No worries- I may start such a thread soon to keep track and to make sure we do not miss any entries, however the official way to enter is by creating new threads for each entry. 1) Category A is purely galidor parts- nothing can be used that wasn't in a galidor set. You can head over to Nick V's twitter https://twitter.com/princegalidor?lang=en to see some awesome examples of what can be done with just Galidor parts 2) Yes you are free to use any Galidor design for Category B, whether it is something that was created as a set, or just characters/vehicles in the show that were never created as sets. 3) The winners will be determined by how many votes they rack up in total across both categories. So really you have a chance to win regardless if you choose to enter only one or both categories- but each member of Eurobricks gets to vote once in each poll, so if you enter both categories, then you have a chance of getting up to 2 votes from each member, whereas you would only be able to get up to 1 vote per member if you entered just one category. You are just giving yourself better odds, so there is more incentive there to enter both categories. We want to see people trying to recreate some of the difficult shapes and designs of the original Galidor sets, but certainly if you have some changes or interesting ideas in mind we would love to see that
  5. As per the rules, please make a new thread here in AF for each MOC you plan to enter; just be sure to identify whether this is for Category A or Category B. Entries are to be placed in their own entry topic in the Action Figures forum. The title of the topic should begin with "[Galidor Category A/B]" and then give the name of the entry.
  6. Digital entries will not be permitted - I've modified the rules to reflect this, not sure how that one missed getting entered. I've uploaded the image into the Eurobricks server so it should be appearing now Galidor-Free Build and Galidor Free-Build... Also everyone please note one other modification ; we will be allowing multiple entries per member per category, we want to encourage lots of participation here. Any votes you get on all of your entries will be counted towards your vote total.

  8. Have you ever wondered what would happen when we finally just lost it and decided to do a contest based around Galidor? Well we've gone and done it, welcome to the Glinch Royale! Before you ask, this is not, I repeat, NOT an April Fools day joke. This is the real deal, with some really awesome prizes up for grabs. Your mission is to show off your building skills in a choice of two different categories. For those not in-the-know, Galidor was a one-time line released back in 2002 which had a very unique selection of parts. While it's existence has been little more than a joke, it also makes the perfect challenge for this building competition. So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the rules to find out what's up for grabs and how you can get it!
  9. Have you ever wondered what would happen when we finally just lost it and decided to do a contest based around Galidor? Well we've gone and done it, welcome to the Glinch Royale! Before you ask, this is not, I repeat, NOT an April Fools day joke. This is the real deal, with some really awesome prizes up for grabs. Your mission is to show off your building skills in a choice of two different categories. For those not in-the-know, Galidor was a one-time line released back in 2002 which had a very unique selection of parts. While it's existence has been little more than a joke, it also makes the perfect challenge for this building competition. Category A is the Galidor Free-Build. In this category, you will be building whatever you want to build- the catch being that you are only allowed to use Galidor parts. What's that? You don't have Galidor parts? Then you'd better get over to Bricklink / Ebay / Amazon and get some! Scroll down further and see what prizes are up for grabs- it'll be worth it. Category B is the Galidor-Free Build. In this category, you will be tasked with re-creating something from the original Galidor series, whether it's one of the original toys, or even just a design from the TV series that never made it to toy shelves. The catch here is that these creations absolutely cannot contain any Galidor parts. You have to recreate those unique pieces and shapes using the collections of constraction parts, system, and whatever else you may have! So which category should and can you enter? You can enter only one if you'd like, however you can and should enter both. There are three prizes up for grabs, and the winner will be determined based on how many votes they get across both categories. So if you only enter one category, you aren't going to have as strong of a chance as someone who enters both. So get to reading the rules below, and then get building! Entry Rules Entries must be posted by April 30th, 11:59 PM EST (Eastern Standard Time). Unlimited entries per member per category. All of your votes for you entries will be tallied up. Entries should be new (never posted anywhere previously) All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, etc Digital Entries not allowed Entries are to be placed in their own entry topic in the Action Figures forum. The title of the topic should begin with "[Galidor Category A/B]" and then give the name of the entry. 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 5 posted pictures of 1024x768 pixels or smaller resolution but may also include a link to a folder of additional images of any size. The first picture will be used for your entry in the voting thread. Photos of your creation can be manipulated with Photoshop for levels, proportions and color correction but may not include graphic enhancements. We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not follow these rules. Voting Rules You must have been a member before the official launch of this contest (March 31st join date or earlier) to be eligible to vote. Polls will be held separately for both categories. Depending on the number of entries, we may have to add in additional preliminary voting polls to narrow down the choices. Ultimately, there will be no less than two final polls to vote in, one for Category A and one for Category B. You may vote once in each poll. If we find that you are voting from multiple accounts, administrative action will be taken and you will be disqualified from the competition. Winners will be determined based on the total number of votes between both categories. Just because you win one poll, doesn't necessarily mean you have won the competition. The Prizes PLEASE NOTE: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be determined by the members with the most overall votes between both categories, otherwise known as the "total score." Please see the voting rules above for more information on this. Now get cracking and start building those entries! And a special thanks to Prince Galidor himself and toothdominoes for helping to get these prizes organized and collaborating with us on this competition!
  10. We have an established thread to discuss future constraction line ideas, let's keep the discussion there. Anyway, I'll be closing this as I don't see anything productive happening here.
  11. As Captain Nemo said, please be aware of how you are posting and keep things on topic- I know everyone gets heated during moments like this, but forum rules still apply, and attacked each other is not a constructive way to move things forward. Please take this as a second warning- this type of discussion ends here and now To me this news isn’t really surprising. Dissappointing news for sure as this really is another knife into construction and while I stopped buying the sets after Rogue One’s first wave, I do think the super battle droid and ATRT looked pretty good and were a nice change from what we have been getting. As always don’t forget- while another Lego theme may have ended, there is always fun yet to be had. We’ve got something crazy yet awesome in the works right now for Action Figure fans- so for those talking about leaving Eurobricks, don’t be so hasty
  12. In my opinion the problem really started with the Phantoka. They were updates of characters that had established Bionicle and that we did not have any new sets of since 2003, but they took majorly drastic changes from the 2001-2003 designs. I didn't mind the continuation of the Inika build (considering it made all of the characters feel more consistent from 2006 onwards) however the Phantoka came with many issues, such as an overabundant use of grey, odd color choices (all lime green for Lewa instead of bright green, orange for Pohatu) and their designs really didn't share a whole lot of the same aspects, other than a few easter eggs in the masks. Kopaka lost his shield and blade and instead only had a blaster, and Pohatu didn't even have hands. The Mistika took these problems and dialed them up to 11. They replaced grey with silver, and what was once their primary color became hardly even a secondary accent color- to add to that, Tahu was no longer bright red and Gali was no longer bright blue. Instead of one character from a team of Toa using only a blaster, we now added Gali and Onua, making three Toa in one team with only blasters. And while the Phantoka had masks that called back to the original designs, it was very clear that the design of the Mistika was in no way meant to evoke the original Nuva designs at all. Onua even lost his short stature. As sets, were they awful? No. They might have relied on blasters way too much, but they brought us a different looking team of characters from the Inika/Mahri, shaking things up with a more dull color scheme (which would be reversed in 2009) But the largest drawback was that they carried the names of the Toa Nuva, and the Toa Nuva we remember - they were not.
  13. I’m definitely on the boat that is loving this series- all of the new parts look completely awesome and I can’t wait to have these in hand. It’s a bright and fun wave of Minifigures and is a nice change of pace, even the classic policeman is a cool 60th anniversary toss-in. With that said, this might be one of the easiest series to do the “feel test” on given all of these unique molds
  14. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I've wanted to get into the modular series since CC but never have; In terms of what is available in Lego stores right now, what would everyone say is the best set to go out and grab? The Parisian Restaurant or Assembly Square look the most enticing to me from glancing at the most recent magazine, but of course that doesn't show the fun in building or owning the sets.
  15. [WIP-MOC] My apartment II

    This is definitely a really cool and inspiring project. I like that you show picture of the actual versus the Lego version, really showcases all of the details that you are packing into here. I'm actually quite tempted now to take on a similar project!
