I'm thinking of doing several contests each year if this group stays active. What do you guys think of a MOC of Honor as a "prize?" I could also have a photo of the winning MOC used for the group's logo until the next contest. Let me know what you think!

Great idea, that would help keep things ticking over! How about a contest to represent the molecular structure of ABS in Lego? .

I can't believe I just suggested that. Now everyone knows I'm a geek (as if my thumbnail wasn't a clue)

How about making something that's made from ABS but not Lego ? There is one car that springs to mind...

Now you got me? It certainly isn't a Corvette. A Mehari isn't made in ABS, I presume?

Do mean a real car? If so cool! But probably not for this group. Unless it had a minifig standing on it or something...

Yes sirree... there was a utility version of the Citroen 2CV called the Mehari; this had a one piece plastic - ABS - body.

Great idea for a contest.

I think this contest can be done for these occasions:

-Holidays(Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Hanukkah, etc.)

-Famous people's birthdays

-Misc.


The prize MOCs could be a micro model of the winning entry


Just my two cents ;)

Nice ideas! I'm not sure if I could provide actual prizes, maybe sometime, but I wouldn't count on it. Unfortunately I don't really have the ressources, although that is a great prize idea! The holidays would be good times to hold the contests though!

You can never be declared a geek on the internet.

Oh it is indeed the Mehari?
I am planning a Mehari, that's a coincidence :-)

It's a MOC I build where I announce the winners. Here's a good example: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/292936

I think a "200 pieces or less" (or something like that)for a contest would be great.
Just an idea.

Luke, I'm a web developer and graphic designer by trade. I'd be happy to give a crack at an ABS Forever contest trophy/award graphic that could be used as a prize. We can simply add the contest winner and contest name as needed. Mull it over if you so choose. -M.

Very cool idea, thanks! I'll gladly take you up on that offer, and I'll let you know when the next contest is being held. (Probably at the beginning of April)

Tough to say... In the next week-2 weeks probably. I really need to get more organized. ;)
