Round One: Discussion + Categories
 Group admin 
Alright everyone, let's get this started!

Remember, this round ends on April 19th.


The categories for this round are the following:

- Arctic
Build an ice-adapted Hero! Whether this means snowshoes, sled dogs, or flamethrowers, make sure that your Hero can take the cold.

- Mountain
These Heroes must reach the highest elevations, scale the tallest peaks. Anything from crampons to climbing ropes can make your Hero an adept mountaineer- just watch out for avalanches and robotic mountain goats.

- Speed
Heroes for this category must be fast and furious- wheeled feet, sleek designs, and jet intakes are highly recommended to make your Hero the quickest thing ever. For inspiration, we suggest researching the game Kinetica.


Your color choices are the following:

- Light blue

- Dark green

- Tan


You can of course use existing Hero Cores, as these characters are indeed Heroes.
So... Any questions, feel free to ask!

By color choices, are those the only colors allowed or are those the only colors that may be used as a main color?

You can of course use other colors, but the primary color of your Hero must be one of the above three. :)

Well yes, as long as the obviously predominant color of the MOC is light blue, dark green, or tan.

What if we use, say, light blue, But we don't have much of it, so we use white, black or grey as the main color, but the light blue is an obvious highlight? I'm just saying, since I don't have any tan or dark green, only a tiny bit of light blue that I got yesterday from my friend (but I can buy Thornraxx this afternoon).

Well I would say that you could use grey, because black and white have been the primary color of sets before.
I'd suggest you buy Thornraxx- even though his pieces are not the color referred to as 'light blue', they are 'light azure', which counts as light blue IMO.

Ok Omega, I already see problems with the color scheme idea. So how about this, these are suggested color schemes, but if you can come up with a color scheme that lego or ourselves couldn't come up with, suggest it to us and we will see.... How about that Omega? Concidering I made color suggestions, but you have YET to say yes or no to them... You know, schemes like purple and white, yellow and orange....

I see what you mean.
However, the idea of Heroes in abnormal colors (in terms of HF that is) was one of the things that sparked this contest's creation. Oh, I almost forgot!

Ro and I have decided that if you have a major issue, such as literally not having any parts in any of the color choices, then you are allowed to appeal to the judges with another color. We retain the right to accept or reject that appeal, but because we want more entries, we will likely allow it.

Well, the color schemes you suggested are good, but they are ones that I've seen many times before. What we are looking for is uniqueness! So, what colors do you have enough of to make it the primary color of a MOC and that have not been used as the primary color of an HF set?
(Certain colors will not be allowed because they will be used in further rounds.)

No, I meant that piecewise, there's more light than mata. And you can't really say that it's a light blue moc. I just find that even having the biggest light-blue moc there is (super battle droid), it's still extremely hard to make a 'light blue moc' that isn't a matoran, which isn't HF. Having nui-jaga would barely (not) help at all either. In all, a light blue moc is something best left to steve puckett.

Wait, if you have more light blue on the MOC than medium blue... okay then.
I'd say that if you are still doing three heroes, then you could probably get by with a hero that doesn't have too much light blue, as long as the other two are good.

And about Steve Puckett... yeah, you're probably right.

*jumps into this like 60's spider-man* I CAN ANSWER THAT! XD
Well what started it for me is the memes folks created after seeing the show, or applying things from the show for a good laugh. So of course that lead me to watching to show to better understand certain memes that I couldn't get before. An let me tell you, if you liked Foster's home or The Power Puff Girls, MLP has in common that they all share the same creator, Lauren Faust. So for the most part the show is decent, has good quality, and has enjoyable kid jokes. But there are more subtle things that adults can enjoy too if you read, just a little into it. Like for example, Pinkie Pie, the pink pony, is a party loving WOO girl that bounces instead of galops. Or Twilight Sparkle, the purple one, has adorkable qualities. But those are a few of the many things you can read into this show. For more info, please contact me by other ways or ask a brony closest to you~!

Don't stop MOCing. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you? I'm 14 and I still MOC.

Yah, I'm 14 too. It's just that up to this point it's been so easy hiding the fact that I MOC from my anti-Lego friends, until recently when they caught me checking MOCpages, so yeah. I think u know how it goes.

Scratch that again :D I went to work, and it came out as a dino-headed dude. Yep. Also, doe to a lack of light blue parts, (not my own lack, but lego's) the outside is primarily blue, but almost all of the inside uses light blue technic parts, so that he's actually more light blue than blue... :/ Is that allowed? I mean, I doubt you'll get very many good light blue entries anyway if you don't allow for clauses like this, with so little Lblue parts available (Thornraxx, y u no b out?!?!?!)

I am in the position of having multiple circles of friends operating independently. The friends I've had since I was really little share similar interests including Lego, but my other friends, some of the more popular people (note: I am not one of said popular people) have no idea.

Well, if you are able to build a hero in light blue, dark green, or tan, then please try that instead.
If not, then you could try building a gunmetal or grey hero with dark green/light blue/tan on it, but like I've said, in a way that lets us look at the MOC and say, "yeah, that's light blue" (or whatever color you use).

Hopefully next round won't be based on color, or at least say that color is only a minor requirement, because if you go on bricklink and look at technic/bionicle parts in light blue, you can conclude that it's near impossible too make a "light blue moc", as the light blue parts aren't very big, so they can really only be highlights. Even purple woulda been better, cuz at least there was the joker. Anyways, my entry should be up soon, I have a three day field trip starting on wednesday though, so that'll impact the next round.

Me neither; it's not the actor, it's the character. This doctor is just... boring. And if you re-watch the tennant shows, they actually have suspense and excitement. If you look, (almost) EVERY SINGLE good tennant episode was written by russel t. davies, and he left to make torchwood. And steven moffat is an awful writer. I hope russel goes back to doctor who, because torchwood is more popular than doctor who right now. Trust me, I can talk about doctor who for hours on end, and I do! My friends all watch it. And on the topic of the final transformation, if you're a history buff and know the old episodes (my friend eric's watched every single one that wasn't lost in the warehouse fire), timelords can only regenerate 13 times, but The Master found a way to cheat that, and has regenerated much, much more than that. So the doctor's safe, unless moffat's such an idiot that he doesn't know the old episodes. The worst part about it is that PR for Doctor Who get all these people to act like moffat's an amazing writer and the new episodes are the best, but I can hardly bear to watch them!

Moffat & Smith are a match made in heaven. RTD's stories were almost always violent in a way and the tenth doctor is almost badder than the eighth doctor. He had one movie. I could give you a heated argument on this topic too, but I won't, to bear you the shame. Yes, I'm a fellow Whovian as well and my favourite doc. is Colin Baker (6th) and his rainbow explosion coat.

Too violent? What are you on? They were never violent, they only were almost violent, as in they were sometimes scary but the only time something gruesome happened was maybe silence in the library and waters of mars. Trust me, you can't know how violent RTD can get until you watch some torchwood. You got netflix? Cuz if so, go watch a few RTD episodes, and you'll see that moffat must have skipped the class in college when they learned about suspense... and probably all the rest of the class.

BTW Talonmagic, I'm 17. I stopped MOCing for about 3-4 years at around your age. Now, I think that was a stupid decision, as I realise that Lego is awesome, and I need parts now. Plus, you get the creative juices in your brain a-mixing. :)

Trust me, you can't know how violent RTD can get until you watch some torchwood. You got netflix?

Just don't watch episode 2 of Torchwood with your parents in the room.

True. But it's almost worse the way I have to do it: in the basement in the early morning before anyone's up! Not that I'm not allowed to, but my sister can't watch, and I don't really want my parents to see. I've only seen the first four or five, because I just don't get around to seeing it much :/

Oh, god. Just watch them, I can't believe that an episode synopsis would do any justice, because the RTD episodes are all about suspense and cinematics! Anyway, how could you like (or even bear to read) a show that you've never seen, since summaries are pretty boring?

Yeah, I guess I should.
I have actually watched some stuff from both shows, but never more than half an episode at a time.

Well I'm almost done with my entry, but I gotta say chronos, that having a contest where you have to make HF in one of three colors that are near impossible to use due to lack of existence waaaasn't the best of ideas. Hopefully next round won't be based on color, or at least say that color is only a minor requirement, because if you go on bricklink and look at technic/bionicle parts in light blue, you can conclude that it's near impossible too make a "light blue moc", as the light blue parts aren't very big, so they can really only be highlights. Even purple woulda been better, cuz at least there was the joker. Anyways, my entry should be up soon, I have a three day field trip starting on wednesday though, so that'll impact the next round.


Come on guys, that's where the challenge is! :D That's what makes this contest different from others.

The thing I really meant is, it's a broad category that's very limiting, so you have no guide and limited parts. For a first round, it's a bit too much to handle.

It seems to me that you either
A. built the hero a while before the contest started,
which is not allowed.
B. never bothered to check the rules,
which is not recommended.
C. decided to build something upon joining without reading anything at all, be it rules, categories or otherwise,
which is not exactly smart.
(No offense meant.)


Do you have pieces in any of the three color mentioned?

Just thought I might drop into this conversation okay....(ahem) WHAAAAT You have not whatched a full Episode of DR Who!!!!! I was just like you. My first dr who episode was Silence in The Library and that was the only one I saw for a few years. I followed the tenth dr stories on the Internet and various books until a channel recently started rerunning dr episodes from the ninth dr right to current one so now I know everything about it kinda...

The ninth dr was an entire FLOP with the personality of the doctor not suiting the actor. The tenth dr was by far the best as many would agree (I think) and I enjoyed nearly all the episodes. Though like you said Squid I don't entirely like the 11th dr but he's alright. The stories is partially why I like the 11th doctor with twists and cliffhangers at every turn. With stories eventually coming into full circle at the end of each season. Chronos I urge you to whatch all the episodes of the tenth dr to fully appreciate th Dr Who story :D
