Wait, your allowed to tell us that there's 32 categories? Alright then, let me guess...

1. Vehicle
2. Castle
3. Mecha
4. Short Story
5. Whateverscape
6. Post Apoc
7. Themed Moc (Batman, Star Wars, etc)
8. Music Video
9. Forced Perspective
10. Steampunk
11. Alternate Set (Using same pieces)
12. Can only use 10 pieces
13. Space Ships
14. Possible a Creature/Dragon category

That's all I can come up with for now.
If I guessed one of those categories correctly, will you let me know if I'm hot or cold?

Looking at past Mocolympics, the topics won't be generic themes. I think the point is to get people to think outside their comfort zones.

Hmm, ok, adding some more:

1. Scene from yr favourite book
2. Movies/TV shows
3. Your own home/hometown
4. Nature
5. Maps
6. Underwater
7. Floating rocks

ok, off now to have breakfast - might have a guess at some more later. :)

I bet it will be more things like
"Curiosity killed the cat"
or "If you give a chef a cookie..."
Random stuff like that.

I have no idea what the categories might be or what to expect from this contest. It's my first attempt but I'll have a good crack at anything thrown at me. Batman or technic cars would suit me fine ;)

2. The Dynamic Duo!
3. The Part Where he Kills you.
4. The Last Stand.
5. How on earth did you in there?
6. Door-to-door sales man selling unusual things.
7. It's like Brand New!
8. Alternate universe (can use any licensed Lego themes)
9. Unexplained Phenomenon
