1000 Seconds Contest: November 15- December 25
Join to comment
 Group admin 
ABS Forever is now the seventh group to reach 1000 members. In honour of this milestone, we are holding the 1000 Seconds contest.

What would you do if you only had 1000 seconds left? Build this, whether a scene, storyline, or anything else you can think to represent it. Maybe you'd spend those last 16 2/3 minutes hang-gliding or bull-riding, or maybe just saying goodbye to friends. Whatever your take, build it!

The winner will be immortalized in the ABS Forever Hall of Fame (group homepage) as the winner of the tenth contest, their entry will be featured as the group's icon until the next contest, and the winner will be offered the position of moderator in the group.

Hope you guys can enter!

EDIT: Don't forget to post a link to your entry in this thread so that I can find and judge it!

:P It may, but it's not likely. It's the weekend, so I'll have plenty of time to build.

But then I still have to compete against other people... :P

Good questions. LDD is not allowed, however you are able to use photoshop to improve backgrounds, sharpen images, change the colour balance etc.

Sorry, unfortunately LDD is not allowed in the contest. I have nothing against it, but this group focuses on actual LEGO bricks and so competition entries should be of real bricks. Hopefully you have enough pieces to still enter, and if not stick around and cheer on your favourites! Glad you joined!

Welcome! Bionicle's perfectly fine, though I find it's slightly more challenging to work with Bionicle to get a good contest entry. However, people like Brickthing and Retinence (on Flickr) have shown that Bionicle can really be an asset. Hope you enter the next contest!

Alright, in the spirit of Christmas I thought I'd post the results without my usual 2 month delay. ;)

Thanks to all who entered, there was a decent turnout this time around and some really great entries. Clever ideas abound, from bull-riding to time-machines. However, as always, only one builder will be added to the Hall of Fame. Drumroll please....

The winner is Alan C and his terrific "1000 Seconds: Rage Over the Lost Pencil." http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/377282

I really enjoyed his artistic take on the category, and the black hole brick gave me a chuckle.

Thanks again to everyone, and happy holidays!
