A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
Welcome LEGO fans to another PCHLUG 101 Challenge! To celebrate the return of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace to the big screen (in 3D no less) and Star Wars days at LEGOLAND California we’re excited to announce the next 101 Challenge will be podracing! We’re teaming up with FBTB to bring you two simultaneous contests. At FBTB the challenge is to build a podracer inspired by Collectible Minifigures. Head over to FBTB for more details on their contest.
Here at PCHLUG the challenge is to build it with 101 pieces or less.
The entries will be judged in one of three categories, funny, faithful or fanciful. Funny is just that, make us laugh. Faithful is directly inspired by a podracer from the movie. Fanciful is whatever you dream up, the more outlandish the better.
One winner from each category will win one 9675 Sebulba’s Podracer and Tatooine and one 30057 Anakin’s Podracer
This is the official contest group, click here to enter.
Contest runs 12:00 am PST on the 1st of February 2012, ending at 11:59 pm PST on the 29th .
Enter as many times as you like.
Please submit no more than two photos of your MOC (a single photo is preferred).
No age restrictions (but if you’re under 18, ask your parents).
No virtual building (LCAD, LDD), if you want to enter, get out your bricks.
101 pieces is the maximum, there is no minimum.
We count pieces like LEGO counts pieces, for instance an upper torso with arms and hands is one piece. However, if you remove hands and use them, they become individual pieces.
There are no scale or size restrictions, build as big or small as you want.
No previously posted MOCs, only creations specifically built for the contest are allowed.
Entries will be judged by members of PCHLUG.
Members of PCHLUG may contribute, but may not win.
Only residents of the continental US are eligible to win (sorry, shipping LEGO internationally is expensive).
Only unmodified LEGO brand elements may be used (tubing and string may be cut).
Submissions are to be added to the official Flickr group for consideration.
Discussions will be a separate Flickr group.
Obviously it will be impossible for us to truly count all the pieces of your submission, we’re trusting you to be honest in your count.
Winners will be posted on the PCHLUG website as well as Flickr.
