CHALLENGE BUILD #2: "Toa of X" -June 2012
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Here's the new challenge! Baron Von Ben hath decreed: " I think a good ole "Toa of X" round is in order, with emphasis on creativity, something completely untraditional, none of the 6 generic elements (Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Stone, Ice)."

I would like to elaborate a little by saying this should be a "Toa of X" build where X= something original, creative, or even random. The build and presentation should illustrate why it is a "Toa of X".

Here is a (goofy) Illustration: "Condimen-trahk: Toa of Mustard!" He should have some bodily features that have something to do with mustard or the delivery of mustard (Mustard cannon?). The page should show him in action with his epic mustard-wielding skills.

A premium should be put on creativity, presentation, and as always execution (i.e. "awesomeness"!) Time to impress each other! Let's go!

TOA OF X Dialog Welcome HERE!

Does it have to be a COMPLETELY new build or can we ravmap old contest entires (from different contests)? I would want to revamp a moc of mine (Aurelius, http://mocpages.com/moc.php/322302) and edit some info on him, and add keetorange. Would that be possible?

Let's make it a new build. The heart of the BCBS is to provide new challenges to get us building new stuff. I'm sure you could come up with something awesome and fresh.

Also I'm planning to build a Toa of Thunder, is that okay or too close to the official Lightning element?

I suppose, but remember that you are trying to invent a new "Toa of X" with an emphasis on originality/creativity, so the judges (everyone else) might not be impressed by a revamp for this round. Of course, it can't be a reposted MOC.

The 14th. It's the same posting date for every month (see Timeline) Thunder would work. Just as a reminder, I'm not the judge. All participating members vote so try to do something that impresses a lot of people either through its creativity or its execution or both. Best of luck!!

If it's your design, sure. If you're repeating his MOC, then no. You may want to put an original spin on it. Make sure it meets the other criteria for this round. ~DG

Man I'd love to enter this round, but I don't have parts for much right now. I have, however, been toying with the idea of making a Toa of Glass, but that might be a ways down the road, and I'd have to tear apart one, two, or possibly three of my favorite MOCs. I'll think it over.

I don't think I'll be able to enter this month, because my time was eaten by school and other stuff. If I can finish the MOC today, it's okay, but if I can't, too bad.

VOTE before the 21st is over! All who submitted a MOC for June's contest MUST VOTE by email (see Voting in Rules) before the end of the 21st which is tomorrow. If you don't vote, your MOC is disqualified. That's just how it works...So VOTE!
