I did consider the Uruk hai army set, but "Shelob Attacks" has the main characters in it, and it's a unique set with the spider and all. Sorry, we're not changing it.

A wonderful prize! I hope that I can build something without having to tear down my CCCX castle.

That's a cool prize. I saw a video of the designer for that set showing the details and movements of it; it's a very interactive set.

That's a good prize, but I don't feel comfortable with giving out my address to anyone I don't know in person. In the extremely unlikely case that I win, I'm not sure what I would do. Call it paranoia, but you can't be too safe.

The winner will be invited to the private judges group, where I will give out my email. The winner (or the winner's parents) can then shoot me an email simply with the info I'll need to ship it (no more, no less). There's nothing fishy going on here, don't worry.

For what it's worth, I know where you're coming from. I'm also very slow to give out much information. I think that's an excellent thing to be careful of.

What about shipping it to a nearby post office?

No thanks, if I win I would like a favorite builder or comments on all creations from judges.
But that's very unlikely since I have only one Hobbit set and pretend it's like City.

While I understand that you might not want more Lego as a prize, I don't think that comments and favorites should be given as rewards for winning a contest. Popularity should be a sign of freely given respect and a reward of quality MOCs. Also, Ian has been working very hard to make this contest possible. I think it would naturally be right to show a bit of gratitude, regardless of what the prize is, towards Ian and the more involved judges for even offering a prize in this small tournament. Good luck in the games! [Insert elvish farewell here]

That would work. We would still invite you to a private group to get the Post Office address, but I too would be more comfortable with that were I playing the games. [Insert elvish farewell here]

I'm not an adult! I do not have a credit card or those things. No prize is perfect for me

Wait, are you under the impression that the winner has to pay for his prize? If so, allow me to set you straight!! We're buying the prize and paying for shipping and all that jazz, all the winner (or the winner's parents) will need to do is privately supply us with a location/address to ship it to. And don't worry, we'll keep any information received (for the purpose of shipping) carefully under our belts. "Keep it secret, keep it safe!" ~Gandalf :)

For all of you worrying about the prize, may I suggest that you concentrate on your builds for the time being, and if you happen to win, fantastic! Then you can worry about where to mail the prize, etc. If you don't win, then a lot of this conversation won't even be necessary. The judges have put in a lot of time and effort coordinating this contest, and having a prize at all is not common for MOCpages. Let's appreciate what they have done, and not bother them with endless questions that may not even matter in the end! :)

Truly said, Kenton. Considering very few people will even make it to the final round, no one should worry about this yet.

Yes, don't count your chickens before they hatch. Only one person gets a prize.
