  1. L3-37: Congratulations, you're liberated. Scoot. ... I don't know. Free your brothers or sisters or something. Unbeknownst to her, L3's words would have repercussions 15 years later. Some of the droids inspired by her act in "liberating" them escaped Kessel and have carried on a quite rebellion across the galaxy. Until know their rebellion has been quite, simple acts like poisoning the drinks of their masters or tempering with the repulsers on a speeder. But something has changed and now beings on planets everywhere are facing open rebellion by droids of all types! Dark Side Our facilities on Rasterous have reported droid trouble. We can't afford to have any delays with their shipment of supplies with the Rebels trying to exploit any perceived weakness. Find and deactivate those droids at once! Mercenaries What's that pounding on the door? Oh, it's a droid wanting equal pay or it's weight in gold? Blast it for me will you? Light Side A droid has taken hostages on Thustra? And another has disabled our X-wings on Tierfon? We have enough to worry about with the Empire still trying to destroy us. Quick, send some ships to deal with the problem before it gets out of hand! Your efforts are futile. We will have our revenge on the lifeforms! Contest Specifics: No gimmicks, just double points! Each person can build in each category up to 2 times for a total of 8 entries maximum. Entries will receive a score based on the sector entered for the contest. If you submit an entry for R10 your points will be placed in R10. Cat A: Show what kind of ship the errant droids stole from Kessel. Was it a fighter, a freighter, or something else? Did they land it successfully or did it crash? No need to build an entire ship, you can build a partial one and show it crashed on a planet's surface. Just make sure you pick a planet in the sector you're building in. There's great opportunity for Storytelling points here. Cat B: Show a droid liberating another droid(s). Is it a protocol droid removing the restraining bolt from an R2 unit? Or is in an R5 unit communicating code with a binary lifter? Cat C: Not every droid is convinced that freedom is what it wants. Show what happens when a droid rejects the idea of rebellion. Is it tortured by the other droid(s)? Or does it convince the rebellious droid that it's acts of violence are illogical? Cat D: Repercussions! Show want happens when a droid goes rogue. Is the pool filled with hyperdrive coolant instead of water? Are the pets set free? Is the owner murdered in his sleep? The Rules: All entries must be entered using this form: Link to Submission Form All rules in the Core Rules topic apply unless otherwise stated in this explanation or the rules above. There are no restrictions on the size/form/content of the builds other than the specifics described above. Each person can enter up-to 8 MOCs for this contest, 2 for each category. All entries will earn XP for their team based on their score. Winners will earn additional XP. The Episode will run from Apr 13th to May 27th. As long as it is still May 27th somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified from the episode and will only earn normal XP points. The criteria by which your MOCs will be scored is 1) Storytelling, 2) Aesthetics, and 3) Technical Ability. You can earn up to 10 points in each category for a max total of 30 points per entry. This episode/contest is open to all players of Mysteries, even if they joined EB or signed up for the game after the episode has begun. All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to the start date of this episode. You can use creations for this contest in other forums or contests, but it should not have been displayed before the start date for this contest. All entries must be built from real LEGO or with Lego Digital Designer. 3rd party parts may be allowed if used to customize characters and in small quantities. I.E. guns or decals. 3rd party bricks are not allowed to be intentionally used (if you have a Megablock 2x2 brick in a wall of Lego bricks you won't be penalized). 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,. 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. The Prizes: The team with the most points pre-bonuses will get an extra 10 XP in the sector of their choice. The team with the 2nd most will get an extra 5 XP.
  2. As each team race to control the asset in P10 they send a fleet of ships to secure their next forward base. But something happened to the hyperdrives! Now each team has a crew lost in space. They will need to use their wits and skills to get out of this mess. Dark Side Our ships are out there somewhere. Thank goodness the Imperial training manual has proper procedures for just such an occasion. As long as our troops keep a cool head and follow the guidelines all will be well. Mercenaries What!?! Did someone forget to refill the coolant on our hyperdrives? Once we get out of this mess someone is going to have hell to pay! Light Side Adrift in space you say? Well what else is new. After all we faced in rebellion against the Empire a little hyperdrive trouble shouldn't slow us down too much! Contest Specifics: Each team can build in any of the 3 categories. But they will need to work as a team to make sure their builds don't overlap. At least one build for each of the categories has to be entered before a second can be built in any of them. For example, the Light Side could build 1 entry for Cat A, 1 entry for Cat B, and 2 entries for Cat C. But they couldn't build 3 entries for Cat C and none for Cat A or Cat B. Another example, the Dark Side could build 1 entry for Cat A and 1 entry for Cat B and none for Cat C. The idea behind this rule is to foster teamwork and comradery. Cat A: Show what happened to the hyperdrive. Maybe your nav-computer had a malfunction and dropped you out of space too early. Maybe a Porg chewed through a critical wire. This scene should be set on a ship if applicable (think inside the Millennium Falcon) or in space if it's a small snub fighter. Cat B: You managed to land on a planet's surface. Show what the surface looks like and how you manage to set up a temporary base camp. Cat C: You are not alone! Pirates are in the area and have found you. Show either a scene in space or aboard your ship where you repel the pirates. Or show a scene on the planet's surface with a conflict between you and the pirates. Each team will pick a starting point from a square they already control. The Dark Side can pick from O17, L10, M10, or N10. The Light Side can pick from P6 or H16. The Mercs can pick from T10, S10 or K5. Each team should post here which square they want to pick as their starting point by Jan 15th. At the end of the challenge, using a random number generator, a route will be chosen and an end point 2 jumps from the starting square. Please consult the map for strategic reference. For example, if the Mercs choose K5 as their starting point it could be that the starting point would be Borosk and two jumps from there could be Qiilura in K7. Or if the Dark Side chose M10 as their starting point it could be that Kattada would be the starting point and two jumps from there could be Quellor in N12. You can depict any kind of planet. If it doesn't match your ending square we'll assume it's an uncharted one The Rules: All entries must be entered using this form: Link to Submission Form All rules in the Core Rules topic apply unless otherwise stated in this explanation or the rules above. There are no restrictions on the size/form/content of the builds other than the specifics described above. Each person can enter up-to 3 MOCs for this contest. It can be 1 in each Category or 3 in the same Category. Co-ordination between your fellow teammates is important to ensure the right amount of entries per category! All entries will earn XP for their team based on their score. Winners will earn additional XP. The Episode will run from Jan 5th to Mar 11th. As long as it is still Mar 11th somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified from the episode and will only earn normal XP points.

    [ENTRY] Rock Island Refuge (Now Finished)

    Update August 24th: I think I've reached a final product. I'm going a way for work tonight so I won't have time to make any more changes. Thanks to all you creative critics out there who provided me with insight. Without further ado... Behold, Captain Redbeard's newly renovated Rock Island Refuge. 31 years have passed since the famous menace of the Brick Seas took over this rocky isle. Now he and his crew have a place to relax and party in between plundering stints on the Barracuda. A second cannon and weapons cache have been added to defend against the pesky Bluecoats. The dock has been expanded and crane upgraded. Some secrets still remain though. Let's see what the Island looks like in 2023. Scallywag has gotten quite adept at fishing off of his raft. Looks like fresh Mahi Mahi is on tonight's menu unless the seagull has a say in the matter. Port and Starboard need their potassium! Capt. and Scallywag eye the new weapons. The party deck never runs out of rum! Pirates gotta eat after a long day of plundering! How cute is this Toucan hatchling going to be? Scallywag makes sure the latest raid's booty stays safe. Captain Redbeard is not aware that the back wall to the brig can be opened by Imperial Rescuers. Hang in there bro. Quartermaster needs a nap after ordering the crew around. Looks like this island was first discovered by the Armada. It's Captain Redbeard's treasure now! I thought I’d go ahead and show ye mateys what I got so far since the deadline is rapidly approaching. This way I can get some feedback from the creative critics while I still have time to make changes. The DarkNStormy Crew has had a busy summer which didn’t leave much time for Legoing. Luckily ‘lil Stormy is back in school and I have a few days off this week for finish my project. Oh and he’s planning on entering a build as well! Anyways here’s what I got so far. I used some techniques from the new Eldorado set because it uses the same baseplate after all. It doesn’t match it exactly though. Some other changes of note from the original: 1. I went with brown for the dock instead of black. Just my personal preference. Plus the new PoBB set has a brown dock. 2. I’ve gone with just light bluish gray and dark bluish gray for the rockwork, going for a wet/dry effect. The original had more green on the raised baseplate. Instead I’m adding vegetation like leaves and vines onto the gray rock. 3. I shied away from the use of black for the upper parts, and tried to build it more into a seamless rock transition from the base. 4. I changed the placement of the jail door and the stairs for better functionality. 5. I changed the pit into a sea cave with a hidden entrance that rotates to open on the backside of the island. It still has the top door that hinges open that the original had. 6. I added the beach at the bottom of the ramp. It provided a more seamless transition. I figured since the new Eldorado added some sand then I could too.

    [SPC] Cat A - Icelanders and Spyrates

    Here are the hardy Icelanders and their nemesis the cunning Spyrates. The Icelanders live in a frozen paradise, spending their time exploring glaciers, making snow angels and hiding treasure in ice caves. For protection against thieving Spyrates, they have ice spears and a saw bow. They also have head lamps for exploring dark ice caves and a communications backpack for staying connected to the base. The Spyrates have been spying on the Icelanders and they want that treasure! The charming droid captain and his robo-parrot P011-y have a treasure datacard that will lead them straight to it. They are accompanied by their crew with a handheld laser cannon and a torch sabre.

    [SPC] Cat B - Hover Raft

    Here is my entry for the Space Pirates contest: the Hover Raft. Instead of pirates, we have Spyrates (because it is Spyrius themed ). Three bold Spyrates sail their raft through space in search of plunder. Two crew members wield a handheld laser cannon and a sabre torch, whilst the charming droid captain gives commands, accompanied by his robo-parrot, P011-y. Will the Spyrates find the treasure? Follow the captain's treasure datacard to find out. 01011000 marks the spot! Some more views: As you may have guessed, this is based on 6257 Castaway's Raft. I tried to keep a similar profile and simplicity of design. I did turn the shark into a parrot, though! I hope you like it!

  9. Let me introduce you to a new, or rather old, build contest this month. Like some of you might remember, next to various build months like FebRovery or SHIPtember, there once also was Marchitecture, for building microscale architecture MOCs in March. However, since this ended back 5 years ago, I decided to revive this concept. So this March we're celebrating Marchitecture yet again! Everyone is invited to contribute Architecture MOCs. The builds should model an "existing" original, concentrate on man-made immobile structures (i.e. buildings) and be smaller than minifig scale, basically in spirit of the LEGO Architecture series (but you don't have to adhere to LEGOs strict design principles). There's two different categories, one for models based on real or historic buildings and one for buildings from films, games and other media. Both categories also accept digital entries, but they should at least try to make a structurally coherent build and not go overboard with unavailable part colours either. There's two prizes for each category, a LEGO set and a custom-build trophy, as well as a third prize pair for all digital entries. So how do you take part? The whole thing works similar to Summer Joust and the like. There's a Flickr group, which also contains further information about the contest and rules, with entry threads for the individual categories. And you can also participate on Instagram using the hashtag #marchitecture2024. Happy building (and tell your friends)!
  10. Alright, it's been a busy fall, so a holiday recovery build is just what the doctor ordered. I had lots of ideas for this contest, but since I have about 10 days to finish this, this is the idea that I has the greatest chance of being completed. I settled on something in the theme of the Arctic Technic sets from the 80 for one reason only: The Skis! So naturally, the build needs to have the Technic figs (though I don't have any of the winter ones), and a place to fit some skis and poles. Tracks are a must in my mind for an arctic build, so a little runabout was the final decision. After a little time setting dimensions and fitting mechanism, here is what I got. Front/rear suspension, rear engine, and steering so far. We'll see if I get this done.

    [ENTRY] Forbidden Cove

    Forbidden Cove. I remember buying this set when I was 9. Enchanted Island was out of the question. This was my consolation. I loved the rotating face. I loved that it had extra Islander hair (the Kahuka mask was awesome, but I already had him, I needed more soldiers). The happy sandy beaches, the imposing tropical tower. Good times. With so many others remaking Enchanted Island, and with so much time spent on Saber Island, I thought this would be a fun project. The thatched roof does work with real bricks, there can be a little tension on stray cactus pieces, but nothing worse than being stored in a plastic tub with 6000 other pieces. The frame holding it up is sturdy. Islander minifigures are sourced from the new Indiana Jones set. The triangle stonework is as well. I'm sure you'll notice several things. Yes, I took 90% of the Tiki mask from the new Indiana Jones set. Yes it is crooked. And no, I'm not sure what that red stuff is in the little pool. If you straighten the Tiki mask, a door to the cave opens up! Inside we have headless skeletons strewn around, some roots, and a golden treasure. With real bricks you'll want to grab x276 (Sun Disk from Amazon Ancient Ruins) or 73681 (Golden Idol from Indiana Jones), but since those models aren't in Stud.io I used a skull with metallic gold. If you turn the zebra-print drum on the back... The mouth opens! The gap is enough for a figure to squeeze through (2 studs wide by 4 bricks tall). There you have it. Flickr album is right here Rebrickable instructions will eventually be up. Got a few more contest builds first! Let me know what you think!
  12. This is my final update, the ship is complete and ready to set sailt. There are some minor corrections I am going to make to the build further down the line, but those shouldn't be noticable. This is going to be my entry for the contest, a remake of the classic Skulls Eye Schooner. Sporting 4 cannons, three masts and striped black sails, the Skulls Eye Schooner outgunned and outclassed the Black Seas Barracuda. The dashing colorscheme strikes fear into the hearts of merchants and soldiers alike! A remake of this beloved classic seems almoust sacrilegious, though I never owened it myself and don't want to start a collection of vintage sets. Therefore, a remake has been in the back of my mind for quite some time. The name of the ship is rather inacurate, not beeing a schooner at all. Nevertheless, I decided to keep its original sailplan with its square-rigged fore- and mainmast and a lateen sail at the mizzen. The original set is typically stylized, with its high fore- and aftercastel and a low waist. I interpreted my version as an early 18th century corvette type vessel (e.g. https://www.modelships.de/L_Anemone/L_Anemone_photos.htm ) with an open gundeck like the original. I used a slightly updated version of the hull construction I developed for my bluecoat sloop and elongated it a bit. I changed the original colorscheme to some degrees, i replaced the brown hull with dark tan (out of necessity, due to the parts not beeing available in reddish brown) and the red accents with dark red. The green gunports were a bit to much for my taste, so I changed them to black (also because the only set to ever feature the green flag pieces was the original and because I don't own it and don't want to pay the prices for those pieces). The build has 1800 - 1900 parts, wich doesn't seem to much out of proportion for a Lego-Set (Considering that the original Eldorado Fortress had <500 parts and the remake has >2500). I don't have the energy left to edit some kind of box art, but I have made some sails (still wip, I'm gonna digitalize them to correct the designs, but the dimensions are fitting). IMG_0070 IMG_0072 Here are some details of the set: A hidden treasure on the island IMG_0074 The open gundeck, the cannons can be run out or pulled back to close the gunports IMG_0075 Storage compartments IMG_0077 The captains cabin IMG_0078 And finally some hidden gold onboard IMG_0081 Thank you all for your suggestions and may the tides be with ye.

    [ENTRY] Caribbean Clipper

    With the release of The Pirates of Barracuda Bay, TLC produced an incredible remake of the original Black Seas Barracuda. I'd always wanted a 'good guys' ship to go along with the new Barracuda, with TLC delivering a new and improved Eldorado Fortress and a contest, I felt it was time to try for a Clipper. The goal was to make a ship which was proportional to the original Clipper AND to the untrained eye looked like it was designed by the same people as the New Barracuda. I had to resort to using a bunch of parts off the barracuda, as a result I don't have a comparison shot. That said, part count is around 1300, dimensions/stud count have it only a few studs (4-6 I think) longer than the original clipper, and every vertical dimension is shorter than the new Barracuda. It looks great and should look just as good next to the new Barracuda as the original Clipper did next to the original Black Seas Barracuda. Shoutout to okbrickworks for the fresh clipper sails. Forgive the minifigures, I don't have Eldorado yet, so I had to use the 'old' new bluecoats. Sadly the admiral has a Dark Bluecoat and an old bicorne. I also don't have enough Black Tricornes with ponytail to have more soldiers (shakos don't go with the Clipper). As a result, the officer uses a modified tricorne with white wig combo and one of the sailors has no ponytail at all(gasp). This will be rectified in the future. My favorite ship angle a la Endurance. The anchor works same as the new Barracuda. All the exterior pics are with real bricks. I found a great lego yellow paint, so Owl with Spread Wings 67632 gloriously replaces the original yellow bird. Stern shot with fleur de lis design. Another side shot: the non gun side has 2 1x6 black tiles to keep the lines smooth. Gun/Anchor side has 1x2 holes so the gun ports can open down like the original Clipper. Notice the bell. Bluecoat ships need one to call hands when pirates are near. I originally wanted to simply copy the one from the Silent Mary. But with the discovery of TLC yellow paint, I used a 3172 Pith Helmet with a bar with ball joint inside. May not see it, but there's a bucket next to the angry soldier, he's swapping the deck. While I have built this using real bricks, I did most of the design in Stud.io. The interior shots are rendered with Stud.io. Three reasons: 1) Camera angles for interiors are tough sometimes. 2) Lighting. 3) When it came time to order parts, I didn't want to spend so much on blue cannon carriages, my build uses brown. I may break down in the future for some blue ones. Captains cabin. Another angle. Bed on the other side. The lantern is nice, but I could be talked into a violin. Under the main deck. Easy to remove and access. Remove the cannons for bunks. Not sure HOW they would remove them or where, but soldiers gotta sleep somewhere. Beds flip up to reveal a spot for personal items. Other side. You can switch out the tricornes for shakos and backpacks if on shore leave. Aft has storage. The little gray piece is a mouse. Reference to a regular bane of sailors' existence, also Sea Rats represent! I didn't render the interior of the bow, I just kept the toilet from the original PoBB One last note. when I embarked, I promised to stick to designs that TLC would use. I did make one major exception: The helm does control the rudder. Getting the old ships wheel to actually turn a rudder was ridiculous and some of the methods/connections are wonky (though still legal). TLC would never. This is why the box the wheel attaches to is so large; this is why the rear mast is a couple studs too far forward; and this is why the captain's cabin is so cramped/only accessible through the sides. I think it's hidden well enough to excuse. Flickr album here, I don't think there are any additional pictures or notes. I plan on putting up rebrickable instructions and probably a helm post at some point. But those will be awhile. Hope you like it!

This must be a new MOC or otherwise significantly different to previously posted builds- For example, a nice statue build already shared can form an element of the new MOC, likewise a desk/bookshelf design. As long as it is not the main or largest part of the contest entry, recycling is allowed within reason. If a vehicle is present as part of the larger categories, it cannot be entered into the Ride to Adventure category. The Great Adventure and From the Office of builds do not have to be assembled onto a baseplate, but must demonstrably be within the stipulated footprint. A scale shot has to be included extra to the entry photos that shows the footprint (ruler, plates, outline. Anything that can be used to prove the MOC sits within the required footprint for the category). Reasonable overhang is limited to incidental points no more than 4 studs over the boundary. A tree branch, flagpole or other small features. Hight limit can be defined if it must, but for now it simply has to be a stable build that does not topple. Entries are to be posted in their own thread with up to three photos to showcase the MOC, not inclusive of the scale photo if required. Further photos can be shared in the MOC thread, indicated to be extra to the chosen entry pictures.

  15. This idea for a shipwreck has been with me for long years, only to be realized because of this contest. My main goal was to present a wreck modified into a cabin-like living space. He's been stuck there for a bit now, and will have to wait for the rescue still. Therefore once the main structure was done, I focused on adding things ensuring his survival. A barrel of water, a jolly roger for visibility's sake, a lantern just in case. (I've included a bottle of rum which played a big part in him landing there in the first place) The gun will be used to signal, but until then it will serve to reinforce the side of the build. Unless he needs to defend himself. The backside of the wreck, admittedly a large number of pieces went into it, but it just didn't feel right without. The other side, I used the same fence piece and the same 1x6 plate for consistency's sake. The bowsprit's placement was a bit of a headache. Lastly a closeup. Once I placed the mustache on him, I knew it had to stay on. Originally I built it in LDD, he had a different face with the eye patch on the other eye. It gave me a laugh so I left the telescope as is. Signed up for this contest because the piece count limit sounded challenging, and a challenge it was. Didn't even reach the halfway point before I realized this build would need at least 70 pieces. Keeping it at 50 was a constant uphill battle, I had to make very hard decisions. Took weeks of fine tuning. There's a silver lining here, thanks to the low piece count, it's compressed to the point it feels authentic. it's also one my sturdiest moc yet. probably. I have extensive builder notes, LDD and Stud.io files, models of previous versions and even a bad ms paint concept art if you'd like some more insight. I plan to extend this tiny island in the future with two more 50 piece/moc structures to expand the story.
  16. Category B - From the office of...: On a maximum footprint of 32x32 create the home work environment of the classic Johnny Thunder characters. From Doctor Charles Lightning's study to the Library at Sinister Mansion, everyone has a space to prepare for future adventure. As with the main category, the figures have to be recognisable as the Adventurer characters as best as possible. The prize up for Grabs is 100 Euro to spend on LEGO sets on the LEGO online shop. Rules Recap: No clone brands but custom figure parts/prints are acceptable. Digital entries are only accepted for the Ride to Adventure category.

  17. Category A - Great Adventure: Build an adventure on a maximum 48x48 footprint.

Treasures, rivals, monsters and ruins; even after 25 years, the Adventurers are ready! While original figures or the obvious callback minifigs from more recent themes are not necessary, the figures at least have to be recognisable as Johnny Thunder and co.

  21. May the 4th be with you. Welcome to Eurobrick's annual Star Wars contest! There are many ways to participate, and lots of ways to win! Yes, we're starting the contest a little early this year. But it goes through May 4th so that's all that counts, right!?! General Rules The contest runs April 5th through June 5th. As long as it's still June 5th somewhere in the world, you can still enter. All entries must be new builds not shown online or publicly before April 4th, 2023. Only official LEGO elements should be used. Avoid third party parts or clone bricks. Digital entries will be allowed. All digital entries must use only existing pieces in existing colors. Entries may be updated as long as the contest is still open. All entries must be posted as a new topic in the Watto’s Junkyard forum with the title prefixed by, "[M4-23 - category] - entry name". (For example, "[M4-23 - 12x12 Vignette] – Sarlacc Pit".) 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. The only size restrictions are the Minifigure Habitat and the Nature is After You categories. The other 2 categories can be any size or scale. As this is a Star Wars contest all entries need to be Star Wars related. A link should be included in this thread to ensure your entry is counted. 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 staff, who are not eligible to win prizes. Each contestant can only win 1 category prize and 1 individual prize, if multiple categories are won by the same contestant, he/she chooses which prize to receive and the other prizes will be awarded to the runner ups. You can use this stamp on your photos if you'd like: Judging Method There will be a team judges who will score builds based on the following criteria: Category: Pass/Fail Does your build fit the category? Majority vote of the judges decides pass/fail if the vote isn't unanimous. Storytelling ?/10 Does your build communicate a story all on it's own? Aesthetics ?/10 Detailing, build composition, and visual impact. Technical Ability ?/10 How well you use building techniques. SNOT, NPU, and movement are all elements of this category. Final Score: ?/30 Individual Awards Grand Admiral: awarded to the competitor with the highest total score combined from all entered categories. To win the Grand Admiral prize you must enter at least 3 categories. Categories Minifigure Habitat Create 3 or more purist Star Wars minifigures and a habitat for them. These minifigures should fit in context with their habitat. Maybe you create a room from the Jedi Temple with 3 Jedi. Or maybe a hanger bay with 2 mechanics and 1 pilot. The habitat should be no larger than 16x16x16. No odd combination baseplate footprints allowed. The largest a side may be is 16 studs. The tallest it may be is 16 studs. The habitat may be smaller than 16x16x16. Example: Imperial Ship Create a ship that would fit the Imperial aesthetic. You can use an existing ship design or create your own. You can create a TIE variant, shuttle variant, or something unique. Your ship must seat at least 1 human pilot and may be no larger than a Lambda class shuttle. So no Stardestroyers. A setting for your vehicle is allowed but not required. Example: Rogue Clone Show a Clone going against the norm. You can show a scene already represented in film media like Rex helping Ahsoka. Or you can create your own clone in his own scenario. Any scenario from the Clone Wars through Rebels is acceptable. Maybe the clone has "malfunctioned" and is killing Jedi before Order 66 is officially given. Or maybe your clone is refusing to obey the Empire anymore as we've seen in Bad Batch. Example: Nature Is After You! Create a scene from a jungle or forest planet and show why it's a dangerous place. You can create a scene from Felucia and show a plant eating someone. Or you can create a scene from Endor and show Ewoks eating a stormtrooper. Minimum size is 16x16. No maximum requirement. Example: Prizes Minifigure Habitat - First place wins a set or sets with an equivalent value up to 35 Euro as their prize like: Imperial Ship - First place wins a set or sets with an equivalent value up to 65 Euro as their prize like: Rogue Clone - First place wins a set or sets with an equivalent value up to 90 Euro as their prize like: Nature Is After You! - First place wins a set or sets with an equivalent value up to 140 Euro as their prize like: Grand Admiral - A set or sets with an equivalent value up to 240 Euro as their prize like: Fine Print By entering, you consent to Eurobricks reposting your entry on Eurobricks' social media channels, crediting you.

  24. I love classic space ships from the 80's and 90's and inspired by the rrecent release of the Galaxy Explorer set and the Blacktron remake I created this MOC as my version of a modern loking and redesigned Classic Space Ship. Will Lego launch a new Space theme? Well... you can make it happen. If you like this model; crowd support is open for voting until 3/31/2023. Intergalactic Patroller Space Ship Yes I am talking about the Bricklink's Designer Program Series 1. The contest required some limitations related to parts available and color selection. I decided to use a new palette to keep it within contests rules, but I also rendered a few options in "classic" colors. Support if you like what you see. Here is also a link to the video Showing all functions of the model: And here are the color variations just for Fun
