9. Smack the Judges:
Here is your big chance! Make a story, vignette, or diorama poking some good-natured fun at one or all of the judges. No size restrictions.

Can we made bionicle/technic based creations for this?

Can I add speech bubbles to the pictures if I was to tell a story in my entry? Unedited pictures of the MOC itself would be included, of course.

"26. Figgy Karaoke:

Pick your favorite song and use your own Figgy or somebody else's to create a "music video". Provide a link for the lyrics and/or video (most likely can be found in youtube) of the original song you will be using."

I'm a bit confused, are we creating a brickfilm of a popular music video or simply making a creation based off of a song. Is there a previously built example of what the judges are looking for in this category? This might clear up some confusion. Is it even possible to post a video to MOCpages? Clarification would be appreciated.

-Thanks in advance

I'm not going to say what my idea is, but does the category have to be about your "superhero" persona?
Can the idea be something similar but different from modern time superheroes?

The category is open to interpretation. Therefore, that's up to you. I suppose as long as the characters perform an act of 'heroism', then it's good as stated in the description:

"Superheroes are no good unless they are being heroic! Therefore, you must build a scene or a story depicting the Fantastic Five in some heroic action."

Okay for number #4(Man vs Wild) I was wondering because it didn't clearly state if it had to be a animal, so could I make a dinosaur of some kind instead of a animal or does it have to be a animal or alien of some sort.

Animal is defined as:
•a living organism characterized by voluntary movement
The rules specifically separate humans from animals, so humans are excluded, if you would consider humans an animal.

Everyone in the world but you considers a dinosaur an animal. By the way, no dinosaur ever ate a man, so you can't call them man-eating.

Any way, Thanks A monkey and Flare for clearing it up but I was asking the judges because I thought when Chris said " animals " I thought lions tigers bats alligators and all that stuff so thanks anyway.

Look up dinosaur in a dictionary if you're not convinced. Besides, alligators are very close relatives(and birds are closer) to dinosaurs, so if you thought of an alligator, a dinosaur works to.
