That is a DEFNITE no-no. I have deliberately said you can't do that several times.

I think it would be unfair if you entered, to be honest. Since Akara is right here next to me, leave the contest to those who aren't so lucky, hm? It's not really fair if I let anyone I've built join.

Quoting A.D Lord of Darkness
Can we make something to go with the Toa itself for bonus points? Like making a Christmas type animal for it to ride, or a giant present to go with it.


Hmm... okay. That would definitely add to 'part' of the score, but not where I asess the build of the toa itself.

You can make a toa that 'looks' like Santa Claus, but you won't get many points for originality. It's been done before, by me, me ep and severaly others.

Just one question. If Akara can't enter his toa of peppermint into your Christmas Toa contest because you already made his self-MOC, then can I be the one who enters the toa with an element related to the peppermint?(related element:candy cane)Here are some things to expect in the entry:
1."red and white" color scheme(DUH XD)
2. Krika and pridak pieces (likewise)
3. white kanohi nuva mask
4. Glatorian hands(prolably)
5. and most unique, will have a cane with it(old man-cane XD)

Yes, you can put all you like in your page, and I will only mark the toa itself. The rest would still be good for everyone else on the pages to see.
Snow is fine, but I warn you that since Callan has already made a toa of snow (not for this contest, mind), you'll have to make your toa VERY diferrent to his to catch those originality points. The main way to lose them is by doing something that's already been done recently.

Okay, although since you didn't come up with the idea on your own you may end up losing some points. The design sounds good - but if you decide to carry through with it, try and think about more than just the red and white stuff. Actual peppermint is a plant, y'know?

Yeah. The element has to be to do with christmas. That's kinda the point of the contest ^^ Part of the idea is to come up with a new element and powers, and then make a Toa which resembles them.

I think naming one after its own element or something like (which Shadowgear often used to do) is a bad idea, so maybe it affects one point. Nysmaa sounds fine.

Seriously, when! I'ma want know!!! :D


My plan had always been not to publish the results until I had made the winning MOCs and created a YouTube video in which to show them. It would be well underway now if it weren't for the fact that my building had been frozen after my photo studio area thing was destroyed by a rampaging cat. It was fixed this morning - wider, taller and brighter, so I got a lot of MOCs photographed.

I'm also about to recycle a few MOCs and sets to give parts for these three newcomers.

Also, since I was delayed, I ran into exam time. Last week I had exams in all three A-level sciences, and my time couldn't be diverted to anything else. Now, everything is geared towards the taxing Music A-level, and it's not allowing me as much time as I used to have - but anyway, I'm in gear today.

The marks for each MOC will also be displayed in the video.

Well i found out how to delete a group! Remove all members and then on top next to "edit group" it will say "delete group" next to "edit". If it does not you have to delete all comments or lock all conversations.I'm not saying you have to delete this group, i was just saying. Actually i think this is useful to all mocpages members!
