Well, sorry. When I read, I guess I didn't read it right. I thought it meant no posting until the 20th period, but I guess I was wrong.

Wait, what are the rules? Wink

This seems to be a great sequal to the creative endurance needed for the ugly contest. It also seems to be a popular theme recently.

Is it just me or are half of the people posting in this thread even reading the rules before posting? Come on people, if you're 12 years old you can read and speak English here.

We are reading the rules, but our questions are helping us see if we can use loopholes and stretch said rules as much as possible to fit our own benefit.

EDIT: forgot the " Wink "

You know, I built something just fine without the need to bend and or stretch the rules to their limit. Besides that, there are only two rules: Build a model based off a core ship (a well known one), and only new models with official unmodified LEGO elements. How can you stretch those rules? Confused

Anyway, legitimate questions are fine, they always are, but its the questions that keep being asked over and over again that are getting annoying.

Edite: Dang, I guess this just shows me and Don think alike and are confused by the same things Laughing

I'm tempted to take your cool Falcon design, but it would be disgraceful....
Steam Punk is foreign to me, but I might give it a try....

Can I ask a question that I haven't seen in the rules? I can - good:

Is it OK if I was to build a steam-punk model of something...say an X-Wing...that was in mini-fig toy scale? What I mean is, could I make a steam punked model of a toy, simmilar to that of a childs pedal car, but done in the Star Wars universe from a spaceship?

If you can show me where in Star Wars they showed up, sure. But you know that's not the intent of the contest so it's got a very slim chance of winning.

I do however think it's an interesting idea and don't want to discourage you from building it apart from the contest... I mean, a contest isn't the only reason to build and though sounds like a fun concept.

DarkBlue Shipyards has already begun construction on what rumors have cited as an "Imperial scout vehicle," which has also been reported to be powered not by traditional tibanna gas, but steam. Imperial authorities declined knowledge of any such vehicle being desgined.

I'm entering the contest, can you tell? Laughing

Well, I came out of hiding for this contest...hopefully I can stay not just for this, but I felt like warning you guys about my presence in this competition. Wink

So, you all have to build something amazing. Razz

Shocked Holy ...WOW. Granted, it's only someone's blog on Wired, and theforce.net is run by a bunch of lowlife jerks, but that's pretty cool news. Laughing Glad to see the word spreading a bit.

Anyways, I was stopping back in here to clear something up - the whole idea of this contest isn't to create a new vehicle with a backstory that sort of looks like a thing from Start Wars or to make something existing characters built from wreckage... but to re-imagine Star Wars in its entirety, and make everything powered by steam. Same people, same ships, same story, just a different design aesthetic. That's all.

Now, I wonder if the contest will be picked up and highlighted on fbtb.net Confused

So, does that mean that people that gave there creation a backstory, or gave it a new crew are going to get"points takin off", or is this just a warning for future entries.

I'm just saying that in cases such as those described the MOC doesn't really fit the contest, because the contest provides the backstory.

O.k., I'm in. I am going to start small as I have never built in the steam punk style.

Blackjoker4215 nabbed my original idea of a Jedi Steamfighter. His rendition is just too nice for me too compete with.

My entry will now be the venerable X-34 Steamspeeder. Off to Bricklink I go!

Finished tonight! Very Happy I'll put up pictures when I get time. (Hint: It's something that is like my avatar, only steamy instead of prehistoric)

Good job, Don and dW. That's certainly credit to this contest: If not the amazing MOC's I've already seen.

So... on this, are you asking if you can make something that's not LEGO?

We didn't need that to realise that it's a rocking contest, but this really confirms that you guys kick patootie!
