  1. Today is the 20th anniversary of LEGO's first video game, LEGO Island! I've been built the Island in real life in honor of this anniversary as well as to honor Wes Jenkin's legacy, who sadly passed away last week. Here is an introduction video I did of the Island: I also modeled all the buildings in Stud.io so that you can download and view them in 3D and easily export them into Bricklink wishlists if you want to build your own Island! Here's a sampling of the Information Center. If that piques your interest, you can CLICK HERE to see the rest of the buildings! To download the Stud.io files CLICK HERE!
  2. TECHNIC PNEUMATIC CONTEST By popular demand the next Eurobricks Technic Contest is all about Pneumatics. The new Volvo EW160E has been released recently, so it seems like a logical moment to focus on Pneumatics. In the past we've had several great Pneumatic models and recently we kind of lacked a nice manually operated model. TLG stepped up and released the Volvo. They even created a new hand pump for this model. So Pneumatics V2 is very much alive! DESCRIPTION Design a pneumatic model operated by one or more hand pumps and/or one or more (PF) motors powering one or more pneumatic pumps. So you can use motors as long as they are used to drive a pneumatic pump. They can't be used for other functions (not even to operate a pneumatic switch). There's no limit on the number of hand or motorized pumps and you can use. Third party hosing, strings and rubber bands are allowed. No other 3rd party parts. LEDs (and other LEGO lights) are permitted when you are using one or more motorized pumps. Since this contest is all about Technic and Pneumatic, Model Team entries are NOT allowed. A studded model is okay (like the excavator in the picture) but don't turn it into a Model Team entry. DEADLINE Deadline date is Monday 31st of October, 2016. Contest will be closed on Tuesday 1st of November, OR LATER. Disclaimer: I will close the contest when I see fit and when I have the time to process the results. This can be later than the deadline date. Please don't complain about this not being fair and all. RULES AND REGULATIONS The following section describes the contest specific and general rules and regulations. But before that, please take notice of a simple motto regarding the Eurobricks Contests: CONTESTS ARE FOR FUN! Of course there's competition, but at the end of the day, LEGO is just a hobby and the main goal for each of us is to have fun! CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Model Team entries are NOT permitted. Studded is okay, but no model team. One or more PF motors ARE permitted as long as they operate pneumatic pump(s). You CAN combine hand pumps and motorized pumps. Umbilical cords for hand pumps, switches or other operations ARE permitted. You can use ANY type of motor, as long as it's operating a pump. PF or other motorization is NOT permitted for non pump functions (not even operating a pneumatic switch). LEDs (and other LEGO lights) ARE permitted ONLY in combination with a motorized pump. There is NO limit on the number of pumps or pneumatic cylinders. 3rd party strings, hoses and rubber bands ARE permitted. Other 3rd party parts are NOT permitted. Linear actuators are NOT permitted. Electronics (PF elements used for non pump functions, SBricks and Mindstorms) are NOT permitted. Pullback motors are NOT permitted. There is NO size limit. GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS The contest is open to all EB members (also new members). Members who joined EB after the start of the contest can be banned from voting (when vote rigging is suspected). Voting rules will be explained later in the voting topic. One entry per member.

CONTESTANTS Each contestant will be rewarded a pneumatic tag as well.
  3. TECHNIC BANDITS VS ENFORCERS CONTEST Bandits are roaming the wastelands, driving custom battle vehicles, making life miserable, hatching plots against humanity and what not. Things would have gone from bad to worse if it weren't for the Enforcers, trying to maintain peace and calm. This ongoing conflict needs to end once and for all. DESCRIPTION Build a Technic Vechicle with two modes, one normal mode and a battle mode. The vehicle needs to be able to switch/transform between the two modes. In normal mode the vehicle needs to look like a normal vehicle, without visible weapons, armor, etc. In battle mode all bets are off. No restrictions here, use your imagination. Weapons popping out, armor plating sliding out, whatever. You and your vehicle need to survive, so you need to outsmart your rivals. For example: A vehicle with wheels (a car, a motorbike) that turns into a vehicle that doesn't need wheels (a plane, a helicopter, a boat, a submersible). A truck that transforms into a rocket launch site A helicopter that turns into a jet plane TRANSFORMATION The single most important aspect of this contest is that the vehicle (that is the chassis or bodywork) needs to have some sort of transformation, which makes it possible to turn the normal vehicle into the battle vehicle. Essentially, it needs to transform into another type of vehicle, or the same vehicle with sufficient transformation. For example; You can create a vehicle where the bodywork rises and can turn like a tank. This doesn't really make it a different vehicle, but there is a proper transformation. CHOOSE SIDES Before you start building, you need to choose a side! Will you ride with the Bandits and wreak havoc or will you uphold the law and roll with the Enforcers. The choice is yours! In order to distinguish the two sides, there's a mandatory color scheme to be used. The Enforcers roll in Black & White (optional), while the Bandits use any other color combination they can get their hands on (Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, a mix of colors, whatever). Both sides can use Grey as a supporting color (as long as it's not predominant). Both sides can use any color in the chassis, as long as the bodywork is mainly the color of the chosen sides Both sides can use grey in the chassis. Colored pins and bushes are allowed, but please try to avoid using colored connectors, clearly visible from the outside. NAME YOUR VEHICLE What would a bad megablocks vehicle be without a bad megablocks name?! Exactly! So each vehicle needs to have a cool name, designating the vehicle in the pack. DEADLINE Since this is a summer contest and some of you might enjoy a well earned holiday, the allotted time for this contest is 8 weeks. Deadline date is August 16th, 2015. Contest will be closed on Monday the 17th OR LATER. Disclaimer: I will close the contest when I see fit and when I have the time to process the results. This can be later than the 10th of August. Please don't complain about this not being fair and all. RULES AND REGULATIONS The following section describes the contest specific and general rules and regulations. But before that, please take notice of a simple motto regarding the Eurobricks Contests: CONTESTS ARE FOR FUN! Of course there's competition, but at the end of the day, LEGO is just a hobby and the main goal for each of us is to have fun! CATEGORIES In order to make it a bit more interesting for everyone to enter the contest, we are trying something new. Instead of having a single list of participants with Jeroen winning , this contest consists of two categories (A and B). One for Pro builders (designated by the Pro tag) and the previous contest medalists. The second category is for everyone else. Updated category rules (thanks to Lipkop for the suggestion): The two categories aren't strictly separated. Voters will not be forced to vote in both categories, and the ranking will still be announced as a single list, not just the separated A and B lists. So basically everything will be as it was before, but the first pro/non-pro in the list also gets a prize and gets attention. The winner of the non pro category might get promoted tho the pro list Disclaimer: Not all Pro builders have a Pro tag. When I see a Pro builder entering the contest, I retain the right to grant him the Pro builder tag and promote him to category A (no questions asked). CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Each vehicle needs to have a cool name (no name, no entry). Each contestant needs to chose a side (Bandits or Enforcers). Bodywork of an Enforcer needs to be Black & White (optional) as supporting color (grey as supporting color is allowed). Bodywork of a Bandit needs to be Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, ... (any color, or a mix of colors), as long as it's not Black or White (grey as supporting color is allowed). Pneumatics are permitted. LEDs are permitted. 3rd party strings, hoses and rubber bands are permitted. Electronics (PF elements, SBricks and Mindstorms) are permitted.

  4. Information Central [Modular MOC]

    Information Central [Modular MOC] As part of the great Mayhead City redevelopment, the town's old, dated information centre was completely renovated to provide a better experience for tourists wishing to find out more about the local area. The new building both manages to maintain the iconic interior of the old information centre and project the centre's design into the future with a state-of-the-art viewing platform. Thanks for looking!
  5. (Dedicated to Grohl, the best C-Model builder Eurobricks has ever known.) Technic C-Model Contest Our last contest was dedicated to Model Team, a tricky contest to enter. Listening to your opinion it became clear that having an alternative build (C-Model) contest is highly anticipated. So hopefully you will enjoy this contest. It's a contest well worth to enter since we have great prizes DESCRIPTION Build an alternate LEGO Model out of one or two existing LEGO Technic sets. The total part count for the set(s) you use can't exceed 600, so you can either use a single set containing 600 parts or less or use two (different) sets with a combined part count of 600 or less. You can't use 600 parts of a 1200 part set. Since 2005 is the year I came out of my dark ages, I am also imposing a release date limit. The set(s) need to be released in the year 2005 or later. For example: Use two (different) sets: 144 parts + 186 parts = 330 parts Use a single set: 499 parts DEADLINE Deadline date is November 30th, 2014. Contest will be closed on Monday the 1st, so you will have the entire Sunday to build. CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Set(s) not older than 2005. You c.an't use the same set twice. 8293 PF Motor Set is not allowed. 8287 Motor Box Set is not allowed. Only original stickers can be used, but they are not mandatory (so they can be omitted). Single set part count or combined set part count can't exceed 600 parts. You can't use 600 parts of a 1200 part set (see previous rule). Nathanael Kuipers is disqualified because he is a professional C-modeller! GENERAL RULES AND RESTRICTIONS The contest is open to all EB members (also new members).

  6. MODEL TEAM VEHICLE Entering the last contest (Mini Build) with a Model Team creation wasn't allowed. To compensate we are now looking for Model Team creations...and Model Team only! We know there's a thin line between Model Team and Creator Series, so we won't be overly critical about the entries. If you want to know more about what is considered Model Team, here's an elaborate topic about it. DESCRIPTION Build a LEGO Model Team vehicle with a maximum size of 46 x 16 STUDS. For example: Truck Jeep Formula One Car Boat Helicopter ... In my opinion Model Team is a model with a Technic chassis, a brick built bodywork and a couple of functions/features. DEADLINE Deadline date is October 3rd, 2014. Contest will be closed on Saturday the 4th, so you will have the entire Friday to build. Closing time on Saturday is whenever I feel like it (most likely after breakfast), so consider Friday to be the deadline. CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Maximum size is 46 x 16 STUDS (rear view mirrors and comparable parts sticking out don't count towards the width of the vehicle). NO Electronics (PF, Mindstorms, etc) are allowed. Only OFFICIAL LEGO parts. No chrome unless it's official LEGO (see previous rule) Ropes/Strings, rubber bands and pneumatic tubing need to be official LEGO parts. Set must have at least one, preferably more, functions. Aesthetics do count. ONLY Model Team. GENERAL RULES AND RESTRICTIONS The contest is open to all EB members (also new members). Members who joined EB after the start of the contest can be banned from voting (when vote rigging is suspected). Voting rules will be explained later in the voting topic. One entry per member. Entries need to be new (never posted anywhere previously). Only physical builds, so no LDD or other virtual entry. If you have any doubts about the suitability of your entry contact me. All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed. Decals (stickers) will be allowed if you've made them yourself, but no cutting, sculpting or modifying parts. Entries are to be placed in the (soon to be created) entry topic in this forum. Entries not in the (soon to be created) entry topic are not eligible for voting. The entry post may be edited at any time up to the end of the contest, so feel free to make improvements if you wish. We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not follow these rules. These rules can be changed whenever we see fit to ensure that people follow the intent of the contest. Staff members are not eligible for winning prizes. WHAT DO I NEED TO ENTER? All participant need to create a discussion topic and create a post in the entry topic. DISCUSSION TOPIC A discussion topic starting with [MT]. ENTRY POST The entry post (in the soon to be created entry topic) should contain: Entry name Short summary of the functions. Promotional image (this one should kick megablocks!) The promotional image needs to be clear and crisp image, which really shows the model in it's best way. Think of it as the image on the box. Building a great MOC is one thing, but a decent presentation really helps you to get more votes. Like the Mini Build contest a composite image is allowed. PRIZES For this contest the prizes aren't sponsored by TLG, so they are a bit different than you are used to. I have come across two Model Team sets, which I will donate to the 1st and 2nd place winners. Both sets are in okay condition, although they haven't fully stood the test of time. Some of the white parts have turned a bit yellowish, but I still think both sets are well worth having in your collection. The 3rd prize winner will receive a Creator set, which I more or less consider a Mini Model Team set. I will probably unpack the set and flatten the box, so I can send it using an envelop. Disclaimer: I will send these sets out myself. When something goes wrong and the set is missing in action, I won't be able to replace it. 1st PRIZE 5580 - Highway Rig 2nd PRIZE 5510 - Off-Road 4x4 3rd PRIZE 31018 - Highway Cruiser
