First off, I already got the go ahead by Austin, so we are in the clear. The theme is smuggling. Build you own smuggling ship.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Minifig Scale
- Must be able to seat at least 1 pilot
- Must include some kind of smuggling implement (eg. a hidden area, hidden weapons, hidden stuff in general)
- Can be any type of space vessel. Fighter. Transport. Whatever. No restrictions.
- Be sure to take pictures of the smuggling implement.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Be creative guys. Let's avoid directly copying existing ships. As for a deadline, I think July 31 is a good date. But it is open to debate.

I am open to any comments, questions, or suggestions.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It' started. So you can enter at any time. I am guessing you have one built already. If so, I would recommend that you post it in the MOC section first, then get feedback, and if you feel it is the best it can be, enter it.

This isn't a contest. It is a group project. Basically, it is a contest without winners. Or prizes. Usually group projects are presented to get the community building more.

Yarns87, this is a GREAT idea! Smuggler related vessels have always been my favorite LEGO creations beside the usual cantina.

I already are building a transport ship, but because of plate needed and no extra money it's sitting on my shelf. Crying or Very sad

I have to come up with something else....

EDIT: are self-made stickers allowed?

Finally something to get me building Very Happy . Although I'm a bit disappointed that the podracer contest didn't catch on, still this idea is great and I'll start building as soon as I can. I already got some ideas.

Yeah. If you want to include custom stickers, knock yourself out. I wouldn't suggest it though.

Well, this puts that plan on hold. I may as well break out the parts for this.

I think I'll give it a go. Nothing like a group project to get your creative juices flowing. Now if only my ding-dang camera would work!
