Finally now it’s time for the next Speeder Bike fix.

This year’s contest slightly delayed ’cos of circumstances - house moving and noVVember.
But now with full effect and attention. December offers some free time for most of us, so I hope many can participate and enjoy the little intense builds.


Without further ado we proudly announce our second annual Speeder Bike Contest.


Rules:

There are no real restricions, except that the MOC has to fit a minifig and of course should be a speeder bike.
It has to be a new creation. Adaptions of concepts are allowed but should be referenced. If adaption without reference will lead to disqualification. But of course we'd prefer to see new stuff.

Build whatever you want to, any theme, size, colouration.

Non-Lego parts allowed, sticker usage welcome, modified
parts are also welcome, but keep it to a decent level.

There are some great theme suggestions at THIS thread.
You may consider these great ideas when looking for inspiration.
BUT keep in mind that it should be a Speeder Bike and not a
hover car, spaceship, aeroplane or elswise. Basically a speeder bike is a motorcycle which can fly and therefore needes no wheels. There are enough examples for what qualifies as a speeder bike here in the photo pool.
Bonus points for hitting the nerve of what a Speeder Bike
is.

Deadline:


31.12. 2010 // Midnight.


Submission and Q&A:

Q&A to this thread.
One clear shot of the speeder bike with the driver Here. Stands or edited photos are OK. You also may provide a link to a set with more shots from different angles and close-ups, which is totally up to you.

Unlimited entries, Mods are also allowed to enter, but will
be equally judged. Judges are also allowed to contribute to fire up things, but their submissions won’t qualify.


Judging:

Aaron, Chief and Cole Blaq.


Prizes:

SBC-all by Cole Blaq


1st prize: Speeder Bike with Chrome Stormtrooper
2nd prize: 3 random sealed Minifigs from the Series 2
3rd prize: 1 random sealed Minifig from the Series 2

Special price for the most innovative concept.

We reserve the right to modify the terms of the contest.

Does a Frog count as a minifig?

First thought was not really, but on second thought that's fine. If inspirations comes to you with a frog go for it.

Also on second thought as most people are celebrating the 31st, deadline it one day later - 1st of Jan. 2011 - for those who like to do a last day hang-over build ;-)

It'll be very interesting to see what will come from having no restrictions!

Nice to see more and more speeders being build for the contest! :D

Weird that it isn't up on BB already, you would suspect so. Could we have a dicussion topic, like last contest btw?
admin
Cole Blaq Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Cole Blaq (admin) 5 years ago
^ This the thread for all kind of discussion relating to the actual contest.

Good remark about TBB, they'll probably know about the contest regarding the many speeders coming up lately. We don't have to push things. Those who are interested will participate, this group has more than 300 members, no need for loud drums yet. But we might drop them editors a FM. cheers

I vote for a hangover day build extension - that could be quite entertaining.

This looks like fun, I've been itching to build something for ages but each time I sit down to it I hit a wall of builders block(s). Something small like a few speeder bikes looks perfect!
TheWarden007 5 years ago
Oooo... I started to build, but the rules caught me. I planned to build a Frogspace speeder (fits only a frog - in a small aquarium), but "that the MOC has to fit a minifig" is what I see above.

So, no go for this concept in this contest? (I'll probably still build this for my own amusement.)

Read Ribbitz' question and the response earlier in this thread, there your question will be answered ;-)
TheWarden007 5 years ago
Thanks for the quick response. I did skim the replies, but somehow missed that!

Cool. My speeder's already done I just have to post it. :/

Oh man... I'm halfway through a bike, but I'll be lucky if I get enough time to photograph and post it before the new year.

I'm gonna have a go at this. I suppose I best get a jiggle on!!!
legovaughan PRO 5 years ago
Uhhh, yes I know that ted_@ndes, why do you think I voted for a hangover build day extension too? It wasn't my suggestion, I was merely adding my vote to the cause.
ted @ndes PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by ted @ndes (member) 5 years ago
Since Cole is running this contest, and he made the deadline change using his comment I linked, why would additional votes be needed after the fact? That is why I assumed you missed reading his comment.

Whatever dude. Yawnage.

opallix Posted 5 years ago. Edited by opallix (member) 5 years ago
Next time can we have a time zone included? I live in EST and was planning to photograph my completed entry in the next 45 minutes.



Ugh. Sorry, but I find this kind of lame, especially seeing as I spent quite a few hours on it that could have been spent on more productive work.


:/

But whatever, I'll upload mine anyway.

It's difficult to describe exactly how pissed and sleep-deprived I am right now.

Here's the stupid set of my dead shit.

Yeah, I'd appreciate that for next time. Thanks.

If the entry proves eligible, then I'd prefer to be judged on this picture.
