Well let's see, what exactly do you plan to do with the contest? I know that Bio-Display is doing a revamp contest, and I'm doing a "make a Canon Bio that Lego hasn't", but it sounds like a good idea, so long as you come up with a rule set, ad a basic "idea" or "theme". However I will say this, that you really should invite more people, I have almost 60, and it's hard to get a contest going, so with 12 it won't be easy. But with a little gusto, and some advertising, you'll be able to pull off a good contest, but give it more than a week, k?

Well personaly I think we should do a contest on vehicles because I always liked vehicles and I don`t see A lot of contests on vehicles. Oh and before I forget we need to invite more people I invited Like 15 but I doubt A lot of them will reply so invite some more people please.THX!!!!!

Vehicle eh? Interesting, you have quite a talent for vehicle mocs, and you're right, not many people build those, even fewer hold contests...it'll be a challenge, and original, so that should work, and yeah I'll try to invite more people, another way to do that, to make sure they join, is if there is someone in particular that you want just post a comment on a creation of theirs and then mention this group!

okay, then, if we have our objective, a vehicle contest, would you like me to start drawing up a set of rules for it? Then I'll show them to you, and we can edit them a bit! Sound good? I'll invite some people too!

I have a (possibly weird) idea: Why don't we have different categories for this, dependent on the mode of transportation? Ex: a category for flying vehicles, aquatic vehicles, land vehicles, hover vehicles, etc?

We could do that but remember there isn`t much vehicle mocs on Mocpages It would be very hard to do that because there wouldn`t be much variety beacuase there just Isn`t enough vehicles out there and anyways most of them would probably be land vehicles but we can keep searching and if we find enough variety we COULD do that.

Well the real question is, are we allowing old mocs, or do they have to be new? If it is only new, then i would allow it all in one big category, however if they can be old or new, it could be broken into separate categories if you like!

Okay I have the rules done, tell me what you think!


Bionicle Vehicle and Rider Contest

Rule #1: There must be a single vehicle in your entry, and at least one rider.
Rule #2: The vehicle must be at least 3 inches long/wide.
Rule #3: The vehicle may not exceed 3 feet in length/width.
Rule #4: The rider(s) must fit onto the vehicle in an eye pleasing fashion.
Rule #5: The Background of your photo must be clean, white or some other solid color, no wood please, or stuff like that.
Rule #6: It must be a new moc, you cannot enter a previously made creation.
Rule #7: This is a Bionicle vehicle contest, so please use as little bricks (system) as you can, the less bricks the better!

Judging: There are a few criteria you will be graded on by the judges (us admins). These being:
Build: Your vehicle should be sleek, “maneuverable”, and somewhat playable. I cannot really explain any further, you all know what build means!
Originality: Your Vehicle should be an original idea and build design; changing around an official set is not what this contest is about. A single Bio Spaceship among many Bio cycles will have a better chance of winning.
Picture coordination: Good photo quality, good views of the moc, a good background that contrast well with the moc.
Color and Piece coordination: Colors that don’t clash, but rather contrast well. Pieces that fit nicely with the others. This is not the same as build, this focuses on the individual pieces, not the overall build.

• A few little things, when I say “new moc” it does not have to be built for the contest, as long as it was made after the contest began.
• The Rider is not the main concern, and is not judged as harshly as the vehicle, but a better rider is better; not really another way to say that.
• As always the bigger the better, as long as it does not exceed the limits.

“Prize”: To be decided on (something good!)
