Minifigure Contest!!!
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Well, with activity restored I think it's about time we started our first official contest!!!!
As it is our first contest we'll keep things fairly simple, rules are as follows....

The entry can be any star wars related figure that you like.
There will be one judge, me. I will judge on creativity, originality, description (e.g. Backstory) And I will make it fair on those of you who are purists.
Entries must be in by the 31st although if I feel this is to soon or there aren't enough figures this may change.
Creations should preferably be new however old creations will be accepted.
Everyone may only enter one creation!
Post a link to the creation in this topic and add it to the group as well.


Now, prizes....

1st place shall receive a custom Minifigure from me to go in my comic series. (if you already have one I will make you one for the opposite side.) A large part in the next comic and 10 comments on creations of their choice.
2nd place shall receive a custom Minifigure to go in my comics and 7 comments on creations of their choice
3rd place shall receive 5 comments on creations of their choice.

If you have any other questions post them here.

Good luck, and may the Force be with you all!!! :D

Quoting Vladimir R.
Ok so do I understand this sentence right? Must it be OFFICIAL character? Because I would welcome also fictional characters --> it increase my abilities (because of amount of minifig parts I have).


Nope doesn't have to be official. Can be completely made up

Also another question. How you ment this sentence? And what everything counts as purist? (for example I don´t think that colouring parts is purist).


Purist means you just use official Lego bits. No painting or colouring. It doesn't matter what you do for the contest though

Wait, did you order plain background paper or white background paper? The plain background shows up on clones, but bot on any other torso color besides white.

Try ordering some white background paper, you can cover the design on a torso very well. The white paper is actually harder to find, but is worth it in the long run.

I don't use any gloss, but that's just me. I'm not sure what I would use though if I did. Inkjet printer?

Well I probably can't get my fig ready. But I have already character in your comic and you always comment on my stuff so I don't loose anything.
Even it would be cool to get sith in the comic. So good luck for others. :)

And our winners are...



3rd place : Lord Daraal by Mack L.

Great work Mack, I loved the lightsaber and your helmet design was fantastic. The only grey area I think was the story. Other than that great job! :D You can now choose which of creations you want me to comment on :)



2nd place : Harn Shree-Arh (also known as Darth Ripper) by Vladimir R.

Again great work Vladimir! I loved the story and I thought the simple yet highly effective robe design was excellent. Great job!
You can now pick the creations I should comment on and give me the information to make you a character for the comics.







1st place..... : Darth Vulnero by Admiral Varkov.

This figure was simply superb. I'm not usually to big a fan of purist work but this was simply incredible. I loved the armour design and the lightsaber was simply epic. However, it was the story that really blew me away in the end, no doubt helped by Varkov's experience of writing excellent comics :D Anyway great job Varkov and congratulations!
You can now choose what you want commented on and give me the details for the figure you want me to make for my comics.


To everyone else who entered I thought you all did fantastic jobs/ The scores were all really close with only a couple of points in it and I'd like to thank you all for entering :)
