I've got the classic space thing, of wich I never owned any of them. It's not because I was a kid at those days, it does mean I also had the Lego's (I come from a poor family :( ). Are you looking for a colourscheme or build style copy? And I'm in real trouble with the translucent canopies. I hope the judges don't mind a small variation...

I know that some of you have already commented on it, but it is not visible to me or you in this group or on my homepage. I don't know what is going on, but I hope that it doesn't hurt me if you cannot find my creation for while. It also has a new main picture that says "Wanted: Man-Bear-Pig."

Ok, now this one's really weird...

First, the link in the group thread DOES work but it shows that the creation is "invisble" right now. People get that message when they're new and they upload a creation. We have to approve the user before the creation can be seen by everyone else (I can see the post but you guys can't).

It doesn't show on your homepage either because it's still in the "pending" mode.

Why this is happening like this I don't know. There must be a glitch in the system somewhere and I'll start looking into it right now.

In the mean time, do me a favor. Upload "something," anything, it doesn't matter. Maybe just take a couple quick pics of your work area and post that (feel free to explain that I asked you to do it for test purposes).

Now, as for me approving your account so the post will show, it wasn't in the "approve" cue when I checked it a little while ago but I'll go check again and see if we can nip it there.

And then there's the issue of the main pic. I saw the original pic of you holding the ships. Do you have anyone else in the house (brothers, sisters or anyone) that may have gotten your password and is playing a joke on you? Or maybe someone "out there" in MOCpages land got your password somehow? My advice is to change your password NOW and try to reload the original main pic. For the record, there was nothing wrong with the pic you posted. I also believe I commented on your entry BEFORE the main pic "changed."

For the judges, his entry IS posted and the links were there. I've seen the entry and he made the deadline. We just may need a day or two to figure this one out.

Just for ME as a judge, I'd be fine with that.

As long as 99% of the build is Lego and the only thing at the end is the Lego activating a non-lego device, yeah, I'd be cool with that. I'd double check with the other judges though, just to be sure.

I know that, i basically just want to know if its nessacary for a group shot of everything i built.


In my humble opinion, for this category you really DO need a group shot of the stuff. If you can only build one sword or one ax, then that should be the extent of it. Now, that's just my opinion remember. In the rules it doesn't say that it's necessary to have a group shot. I just know that I would lean more towards the more complete creation in my voting. Think outside the box and maybe you won't have to rely on just "a sword and an ax." Think about it... Good luck!

Photoshop IS allowed, but sparingly. You could of course use it in the main pic, but remember, the judges will ONLY be judging the moc itself. If the photoshop distracts from the moc too much, then it would actually count against you a bit.

You can use it, but my advice is to use it as little as possible.
