These Go To Eleven Contest: January 28 - February 29
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Alright guys, welcome to the eleventh ABS Forever contest.

Firstly, thanks to all who've joined and competed over the last couple years - this group wouldn't exist without your participation and I'm humbled by the terrific band of people here. Now, since the beginning of this group I've hosted little contests to keep stuff fun, and I'd considered ending the series at 10 contests with 1000 members. However, I've decided to make these go to eleven.

Your task - build something based off a short quote. Be it pop culture, classic, or just plain funny, make sure your entry reflects the quote well enough to be clear. Props to people who build from Spinal Tap. ;)

To be eligible to win, ensure that there is a link to the ABS Forever group in your entry, and also post a link to your entry in this thread.
The contest ends at 11:59 PM MOCpages time, February 29th.

The winner will have their entry's photo become the group's buddy icon (for at least a month or two), will be immortalized in the ABS Forever hall of fame, and will be offered the position of moderator of this group.

This is not the end of ABS Forever contests, but merely the end of series one. I do not know when series two will commence, nor what it will entail, but it will be something to look forward to, no doubt.

Happy building!

Could we enter this into a different contest as well? For instance, MELO? They're rounds are quotes as well.

I haven't built anything in awhile, I need to. I just need to find my quote. I have one somewhere I used for a coligraphy project in high school.

Oh, intriguing! I've got a lot of Lego stuff already going on between Mike Doyle's Dark Contest, BrickWorld, and some music related stuff, but if I've got time, I'll definitely give this a whirl! It'd probably be good for me to inflict upon myself what I've so heartlessly put everyone else through with MELO. ;)

Well okay. I just found it, too. But I have another College project getting in the way of building. I love art stuff, but I hate the classes. They're just too demanding of me and don't allow me some of the freedom I feel I deserve.

Bummer, hopefully it leaves you enough time for at least a small entry. ;) Nothing worse than having to do something creative without creative freedom, kind of defeats the purpose.

Here's a question.

I added my MELO R2 entry a while ago, but adding that will be the only way I can enter...

If I add the link here, can I still enter it?

Ah, unfortunately, since that was built before the contest was announced, I cannot allow it in. Sorry mate, that's an awesome build but just a week too early.

Since you did complete it after January 28, if you edit in the link to ABS Forever then I will certainly accept your entry. Cheers!

Alright, so despite February 29th not having come around yet, I decided to announce the results here. ;)

Thanks to the three entrants who all provided quality builds based on some nifty quotes, and made the judging process quite a challenge.

As always, there can unfortunately only be one winner. And this time, the winner is MCLegoboy ! with his very artistic entry "Artists don’t make objects… | These Go to Eleven Contest" http://mocpages.com/moc.php/382276.

I enjoyed the concept, the design, and above all the aesthetics of imagination embodied by the build. The photo of a hand holding a blue brick seems especially apt for this group's icon, so congratulations MCLegoboy !!

Thanks again to all who entered. As mentioned at the beginning of the competition, this is the last in the series of ABS Forever contests, but not the last contest to be held.

If you have ideas for the next series of contests or activities, sound off in the comments!

Cool. I agree about the icon. Being moderator is not too important to me. I'm just glad I got a bit of motivation to get something built. Oh, and if you need some ideas for possible contests...
I've got quite the list.
