Welcome to Round 3 of the 2014 BBRC!

First off, sorry for delays with this round, I've been really busy.

So here we go, I'll just get right in.

Round 3 begins now and all entries will be due on April 18, 2014.

There will still be brackets, just with two per bracket now.

All the categories this round were given by contestants!

Here goes.

Bracket 1:
Toa M
Glorified Pessimest

Category:
Transformer Revamp!
Revamp any character so that it can transform into a vehicle (i.e. boat, plane, car, unicycle etc.)

Bracket 2:
Ventum (Mittens)
Hazeroth

Category:
Faction Revamp
Revamp a character, but make them as you would imagine them as the opposite side, meaning from good to evil or evil to good.

Bracket 3:
Steve the Squid
Super Pikmin

Category:
One Set Combiner
Wait what? Yup. So, as of now, your mission is to revamp any one SET using pieces from up to three sets. You may still make it a combiner revamp, but it doesn't HAVE to be.

Bracket 4:
{Shoto}
Night of thee abyss

Category:
Infect-vamp
Revamp any character so that they look good, but make them infected as well. You know, half normal, half infected. :P

Good luck, and let the round begin!

You guys must reeeeealy hate me...

Couldn't the theme be "combine two NON-TITAN sets"? I seriously don't have the time or patience to cobble together parts from all over the place and take them from my mocs to put together any of my GOOD sets, I'd have to go with a combiner of simpler sets like mistika, and I feel like that will affect me score :/

Mine not going too smoothly either. I'm doing Onua Mistaka, and it's not lookin' too pretty. I first made him way too bulky, and then I slimmed him down. Now the arms are terrible. But I'll still try! >:D

Just speaking personally, I would tend to award more points for a good combiner of smaller sets than of titan sets, given that smaller sets are generally harder to combine than titans.

Wait a minute.

Andrew has misheard what I meant by the category and thereby made it unnecessarily hard. The challenge of revamping sets with a limited number of pieces is difficult enough.

So, as of now, your mission is to revamp any one SET using pieces from up to three sets. You may still make it a combiner revamp, but it doesn't HAVE to be.

Is anyone even going to go for the Stormjay vote anymore? We might as well only have 4 judges.

> 4 points to super pikmin for simplicity

Well stormjay, prepare to dole out another 4; I sure as heck am not going to put together three technic-heavy sets out of my collection, digging for pieces for hours and tearing apart my mocs just to please one judge that doesn't even understand the category. It took me a good 20 minutes at the least as it is just to cobble the parts together from 3 standard toa sets, and even then I had to scavenge from 2 mocs. I'm not going to spend any more time than that just to make a moc that isn't even going to be all that great by my normal standards, it isn't fun at all.

Anyway, I got carried away and forgot I was making a revamp and not something new; what I have now is some weird takadox beetle. I'm going to have to pick 3 new sets now methinks, what fun :/

Though I honestly don't expect to be able to beat SP... I've dreaded the day I'd have to go up against him, if only our round was more epic :C

Ooh one more question; can I use protos? I was thinking about either doing Tarix or Gelu, because I liked the glatorian, those two characters especially, and I happen to have proto masks for both. (They are marbled differently; they still fit the color scheme, but are not /official/.) They are 100% lego, and were intended to be in the sets, so would that count?

While I see what he means (that even without technic there could be some creative parts use or techniques, like Furno Jet Machine's body) I agree that he fails to notice that there's way more to building than just techniques.

That failure to notice is, in fact, balanced out with my equally critical judging of other MOCs.

I personally wanted that category to cover all of R3, due to its extreme differences from all other categories.

While this could be technically classed as an unfair advantage over other contestants, I see no real reason to rule out your protos. Have fun with them.

The colors are a bit off here -- if you had another set with Dark Blue, that would have been nice. Also, I see little to no NPU's here, unlike on Pikmin's entry. So, from the pessimisticmost judge, 3 points.
