Size limitation: 8x8, with 2 studs overhang and no height restrictions.
No cutting/painting/customizing

There are two categories. You may enter one entry in each category, which means two entries total.

- Name of the MOC should be the pun or word play of your choice.
- Please leave a link in your MOC to the TFOLPC. It is not required but it is requested.
- Mention which category your entry is for.

Category 2: An average TFOL prepares for the apocalypse
- Name of the MOC should be "An average TFOL prepares for the apocalypse"

The reigning TFOLPC contest champion will be entering for sure. :]


Guy that was second is entering, too. :D

Now I'm so pumped up.
You're all going down, do you hear me? You're all going down! Twice! You're all going down twice! Mwahahahahaha!


I'll do my best to make that truth, but I jsut wanted to cheer you up (my latest creations are pretty much low-quality).

By the way. When I counted votes two days ago, I was sick of vignettes, and I couldn't believe that my least favorite category will win. Now, when I see categories, I'm looking forward to this.

But seriously, why did you guys wanted vignettes? Again!?
(I'm talking to the ten persons who voted for 6) in contest poll.)

This contest might just be enough reason to push all of those tables away from my systems so I can get to them again.

By the way what is the judging criteria?

It will depend on the number of entries- most chances are that the judges will just choose their favorite entries, but if there will be an extremely large number of entries, then it will be score-based, according to originality, build and a few things I forgot.

Moc most fitting to theme?

I can't see the pictures, all main pictures are gone. According to the title, I can say it's acceptable; word plays don't necessarily mean literal interpretations.

pictures are not necessary. I was just asking if I can change the words a bit. Thanks for the answer.

Do you enter contests just for prizes?
Anyway, non of the admins/mods want (X)or can buy a real-life prize, so the maximum we could do is a link on the homepage and maybe declaring the winner in a small MOC.

I will still enter, I just thought there might be some prize...

Can I make my own baseplate of 8x8 by puting a 6x6 and then adding plates to it to make it 8x8? You know what I mean?

All that matters is that the base be square and 8 studs in diameter. How you go about making that is your choice.

IIRC, 7 bricks and a tile map out exactly to 8x8.

Eveything has to be contained within 8x8 as stated by AA above.

I take it that "overhang" means "going beyond the size limit".


Going above the size limit, but having the base of the MOC (the part that actually touches the surface that it rests on) be 8x8.



EDIT: Never mind, it says in the rules "two stud over hang." I should read more carefully.

Since this is double post, I'll copy paste my last one here, so moderators can delete my last one.(I could do it myself, but I guess mods should see it first.

Old post:

Quoting AA (Noname)
Which requires careful measurements if done with SNOT.

@those who do SNOT (Studs Not On Top): after you take the pictures, you have to show that your "baseplate" is exactly 8x8, no more and no less. Measure carefully!

I haven't visit MOCpages recently, since all of my pictures are (still) gone, but is proof really needed.

I've made SNOT base for my entry for category two (that I'll upload once I'm sure pictures will be instantly visible), but I didn't took any pictures that I could use as a proof.
I'll write how base is made, using dimensions in plates and bricks, but I can't provide you with picture of 8x8 base. Is that a problem?

First off, the deadline is still August 31st. So after that, it will probably take a couple days for us to decide, and then AA will be making a MOC to announce the winner(s). So I don't know, its more up to AA as to when the winners will be announced.

This stinks. I was taking pictures of my entry, then my mom took my camera to take some pictures of her own. I didn't see the camera for a very long time. So I decided to work on my homework. I was stuck on these problems for 4 hours! It was 10:00 when I was done with my homework. I didn't have enough time to take the rest of the pics and upload it. So that is why there is no entry for me!
