Oh, this looks fun. I don't actually have a full turkey, and it would be nice to get it in plated gold. I'll have to participate! :D

Does it have to be new?
lsgc 6 years ago
Why do people always ask that, when as far as I can tell there's never been a precedent for contests accepting retrospective entries? Not having a go, it's just a curious phenomenon.
Nannan Z. PRO 6 years ago
I had in mind that exact image when I wrote all kinds of turkey are accepted.

It's also implied that entries need to be new creations.

Here's my would-be entry. It was made a few weeks ago, however, so I guess it doesn't qualify. I figured there was no harm in sharing it, though!

I've built the only one that's new, but I don't think I should enter it; so apparently not.

There's still 10 days to go though, so there could be some. Maybe I'd win by default? Haha

Here's my entry.

By the 47th Century, turkeys had been genetically modified to intersteller proportions.

Unfortunately with increased size came increased aggression and turkey farmers had to resort to increasingly sophisticated technological solutions in order to continue farming them.

The turkey gunship was designed to immitate these intersteller turkeys in order to allow the turkey farmers to get close enough to dispatch them without serious injury, using the two quad cannons mounted on the underside of the gunship.

Many turkey farmers still remember a time before the turkey gunship was developed and the tragic losses they suffered during the great turkey wars of '43 and '58.

Whilst each turkey gunship can be piloted by a single turkey farmer, due to stability issues, an onboard artifical intelligence, hardwired into the heart of the ship, is required to micromanage the flight control.



I wanted to build something a little bit different for this contest and was inspired by
Brickfrenzy's Turkey Mech (which was posted earlier in this topic) to create a turkey shaped spaceship.

If anyone's interested, there are more photos here: Turkey Gunship

Turducken: The components by graznador

My tribute to the most matryoshka-like of foods, turducken. A tiny chicken is nestled within a larger duck, and both birds sit within the neck of a large turkey. Click here to see the full set.

Forget cornucopias; as the fowl gift that keeps on giving, turducken is truly the greatest representation of the plenty that we give thanks for every year.

Gobquawk! And happy Thanksgiving.

Turkey by Wakkomovies

Some time in the distant future turkeys evolved to be fast, capable of sustaianed flight and a little bit on the small side. This is because turkeys were almost hunted to extinction and evolution has its ways of preserving species.

Thanks everyone, I had a lot of fun building my entry and actually winning the contest is a really nice bonus.

Well done to everyone else who entered, it's really interesting to see all of the different solutions that everyone came up with to build a turkey. I especially like the use of the Octopus on LegoMOCHC's entry and diegoboy's entry is also very unusual.

Of my own creations, it's probably one of my favourites and Nannan (and anyone else involved in organising this contest) deserves a massive thanks for organising the contest and providing me with the inspiration for such a crazy build.

Also a big thanks to ChromeBricks for supplying the prize.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
