Round 3
 Group admin 
Round 3 will be match-ups! This time, THE RULES HAVE CHANGED. Here are the new rules.

Rules- READ THEM ALL

Title MUST be- "Caleb's 4x4 Contest- Round 3: your title here"

Description- "My entry to Caleb's 4x4 contest"

Body- MUST have a working link to the homepage of this contest, AND YOUR OPPONENT, and must state the category that you are in. The rest is up to you.

The build MUST be on a 4x4 plate, there cannot be ANY over hang. NONE WHATSOEVER. This is different from last round, MAKE SURE you know that there can be NO overhang. Nothing guys, I can't emphasize this enough.

YOU MUST HAVE two extra pictures: one with solid brick walls on the sides, and one with solid brick walls on the front and back. This is to show that there is nothing overhanging

There must be at least 3 pictures.

You CAN make multiple levels, however, the build CANNOT EXCEED 32 STACKED BRICKS TALL.

Once you post the MOC to this group, it will be OFFICIAL, you are ONLY allowed ONE ENTRY per round. You must post within the given time-frame, you your MOC WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

You have until the END of the 24th of NOVEMBER at MIDNIGHT EST. This means that you must post it BEFORE Monday at 12:01 AM EST.

So, here are the match-ups. Note, I know longer am giving hints as to what to build. Also, if you have ANY questions, first, ask yourself this "Is it about it overhanging?" If your answer is "yes" don't ask it, because NOTHING CAN OVERHANG this round. Also, I am gone on a trip and will have limited if any access to the internet.

Enjoy round 3, we're getting close!

So. As to the nothing overhanging, does this include minifigure arms/legs?

And just a note, the "Picture from above the MOC" rule doesn't really work because of perspective (top looks larger than the base". A better way to do it would be to require two extra pictures: one with solid brick walls on the sides, and one with solid brick walls on the front and back.

I'm confused. Does this mean we have to have stacked bricks to show the height or a backdrop build out of bricks? Please explain further as it is very confusing as written.

My bad. It is rather late for me at the moment. It means that they need to be there to show that nothing is hanging over.

So, another question:
My build features a rotating propellor. In one point in its rotation, it doesn't hang over the edge, but in other times, it does. It does pass the brick wall test in some positions though. Is this legal?

This is a really tough one. However, since this round needs to be strict to keep to its original purpose, I am going to have to say no. Sorry Halhi :/

I think this question may have been answered already, but since the rules have changed in this round, I'll ask again: Does there have to be an actual 4x4 plate sitting on the bottom of your MOC, or is it acceptable to just have the MOC sit entirely within a 4x4 footprint. For instance, if there were a stack of three 1x4 bricks and one 1x4 tile lying on its side on the bottom, would that be legal?
