Just to check, because the rules don't confirm this as such - are only actual brick designs eligible to enter the contest?

If LDD entries are allowed then I'm in, always did love classic space.

Is there a deadline? Believe it or not I may have something to add today, but I wondered if there was time to fine tune it?

And... Is there a limit to the number of entries?

Wow! That's a neat set of prizes. If I manage to win one, i might actually get more into doing more CS builds because I would have a CS Spaceman to go with it. Good luck to all!

Best part of them is that they really contain that classy vintage feeling when you get one now. I've always loved that feeling.

I love that feeling. That's why I purchased so many 1990s Space sets (most notably 6973 Deep Freeze Defender and 6986 Mission Commander).

I understand that reasoning, all those little rocket pieces are cool. In terms of getting prizes to winners, I will post them out. They are sitting ina Jiffy bag here in my cupboard. If the winner is over18 then I'd ask them to contact me and we can sort out the details. Under 18, it would probably be best for a parent or guardian to contact me. If we hit any difficulties I'll drop Chris a message and get some guidance from him.

As we are so excited about the prices and everyone has a personal favourite, I have a suggestion:

The winner could get the choice between all three of the prices, the 2nd could choose one of the other two prices and the 3rd would get the last one.

Let's see who wins and agree with them how we want to play it. I'd rather keep simple though, first place is first place prize etc.

You need 2 or more alternates models. Other than that you're good.

It's all on the front page:
To enter the completion you need to build a Classic Space vehicle with between 30 and 100 pieces. You should also build two alternatives from the pieces as you would find on the back of a CS packet. In the spirit of CS your vehicle should not be focused on war or military themes; think exploration, mining and research. In terms of style please draw your inspiration from CS, although Futron, Blacktron, Mtron and Space Police themes are acceptable.

The vehicles will each be scored out of 40, with 10 points being awarded to each of the following areas.

Design: as opposed to a simple aesthetic CS should be judged on the principe that looks follow the function of the vehicle. High scores for beautifully formed crane arms and radar dishes and not for fancy lights, spikes and arabesques.

Piece Selection: in those 30-100 pieces there should be enough multi-functionality to build at least 2 other different models (as you would find on the backs of a CS packet). Make great alternatives and score high points.

Playability: can your vehicle divide in two, has it got hinged launch pads or a cool claw? The more inventive the play features the higher the score. Remember your vehicle should be sturdy enough to swoosh and roll along the front room floor.

CS factor: how close to the CS styles does your vehicle get? If possible it should push one of the original design schemes further than the original designers to get top points.

We have acquired some CS pocket money sets as prizes. Check the prizes conversation thread to see what you could win.
