Round 5
 Group admin 
Welcome everyone to the semi-finals!

We had a great fourth round,but now it’s time to turn the page!

For this one the main theme is,yes,you guessed,Vehicles!All the vehicles must be able to cary a driver.

You all know the dril,so I’m going to be even more spare with words now.Any doubts you have regarding anything,be sure to ask before you post your entry.

The due date is 9th of September at 11:59 pm.If needed,an extension for the weekend will be granted,but that’s as far as it goes.


1-Clockwork Tempest – Adam Toh -|- Biker Gang – A gang of at least three bikers.Each of them riders and bikes must be differ from each other,even if slightly.

2-Nathan Ingerson – Bionitech Inc -|- Industrial Vehicle: Vehicle used in the Bionicle world for building.It must have one or more working mechanisms that showcase the vehicles function.

3-Monarth – Lord Oblivion -|- Battle One wheeler – A vehicle that uses only one wheel(it may be a custom one) for locomotion and has a driver and a passenger.It also has to have at least one weapon of any sort,either attached to driver,passenger,or the vehicle itself.


Good luck everyone!


IMPORTANT UPDATE[03/09]:Yet again,all the losers from the last round get another chance!Your job is to make an entry for the second theme,the best one will be picked by us to go against Nathan Ingerson.You may post it on the special entry thread.Good luck to you all!

IMPORTANT UPDATE[10/09]:You have the weekend for yourselves,the due date is tommorow at 11:59 pm.

First off, can we use bionicle minifigs as the passengers? =P

Can the one wheel be a giant tread? (which would still technically have two smaller wheels at each end to make it moveable).

The definition of a vehicle is its a device used to transport people or cargo. Thus could a one wheeled mecha/machine count even if it would have arms, and possibley a type of robot head?

No,that would defeat the challenge.

Yes,as I said,it may be a "custom wheel".

Please be informed that this is a vehicle contest and the judges will be looking at the vehicles more than the rider.

Seeing as my 3rd question is allowed, can said machine be carrying the pilot and passanger? Like voice controlled basically?

Or is this too much off the theme?

I don't fully understand your question,but it doesn't matter how the vehicle is commanded by the driver,as long as it's able to carry the him and the passenger.

An airplane without pilots is just a drone likewise same as other remote controlled vehicle.

As you might have guessed from the previous replies, that interpretation would be OK with some judges, and not OK with others. An original take on a theme usually gets you a higher rating, but stretching it too far might cost you the support of some judges.
Tread carefully.

Question: just curious but from the looks of the comments, the majority of the judges favored The Lego Obssessionist's entry. My question is how did CT make it to this round? BTW if Lego METAL is reading from this thread, I'd like him to know that he did a great job and I hope he joins next year.

Sadly enough I might not be able to make this round because of the extensions. I am already in college and my parts are long out of reach.

So, It will take me a good few months until vacation allows me to come home and build something

Kinda getting silent here along the last rounds, when less people are still in the game.

Anyway, I'm happy to tell that my entry is finished and will be posted tomorrow or friday.

Practically a pointless message, but it was too silent here :3

Question #2: As long as the vehicle has passengers, does there have to be a passenger designated to pilot the vehicle? For instance I've already built and photographed my entry and I am planning on posting it on friday, but there is no room for a control panel, steering wheel, driver's seat, etc. I really do hope that it's alright because I might have to redesign half of the entire vehicle :P Anyways, I would have never expected a special round against ME! This is really exciting! I wish everyone in the competition good luck!

yes that is ok. The purpose of why we required the pilot or passenger rule is that we would know the scale of the vehicle in proportion to the pilot/passenger. Also, it makes the build harder for you guys. Hehe.
