Iron Builder 4.0 - Round 8 - Legopard vs One More Brick


Welcome to the first round of Iron Builder in 2016! The year promises to be a great one for building, smack talk, and bleeding bricks. Let's get right to the introductions. Our challenger comes from marvelous Deutschland to reclaim the Iron Builder title once held by his compatriot Pasukaru76 four years ago. Since then, our challenger has been training hard in the art of the brick, mastering builds across numerous diverse genres. This jack of all trades has the tools under his belt and he's ready to craft his victory. Please welcome to the ring: Legopard!

Just one opponent stands in the way of the way of Germany securing the IB title, but it won't be easy to get past our Canadian Iron Builder One More Brick! He has shown us his own mastery of the competition by always having one more build up his sleeve. What will he enthrall us with this month? What weapons of war will he craft out of the mystery piece to defeat his challenger? The time has come to find out. Stay tuned for this exciting round featuring:

Metallic silver Technic pin connector!

Now craft your builds and amaze us with your skills. The deadline is 2/29. I say onto you the words of my uncle: "Allez brick!"

This should be very cool! Both are brilliant builders, and the part, while regular enough, has plenty of application. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!
