Welcome to Round 2 of the 2012 MIT! Below you will find the matchups with your opponent and your category.
Dates and Times:
Round 2 starts NOW and will end at 11:59 pm, MOCpages time Wednesday, October 24th. No entries will be accepted after this time. If you do not have your entry posted AND added to the group by the deadline, you will forfeit your match and your opponent will advance.
Your entry must be titled: MIT Round 2, "you" vs "Your opponent." You may title it anything you wish after that but that must be the opening of the title.
Near the TOP of the entry you must state what category you are playing in. Feel free to simply copy and paste your category from this thread or type in the title of the category, your choice.
Preferably near the top of your post, you MUST have a WORKING link to your opponent’s page. If you post first then linking to their homepage is fine. If you post second, please link to their entry. You do not HAVE to change the link to their entry after they post (if you post first) but you are welcome to change it after they post if you'd like. This is the ONLY change that may be made after adding an entry to the group. You do NOT have to have a working link back to the main MIT group. You’re free to add it if you wish but it is NOT required.
You must add your entry to the group pool. Once you add it to the group, that's it, it's
OURS and NO changes may be made. If you make a change and we find out about it, you will be disqualified and your opponent will advance to the next round. We STRONGLY suggest that you get feedback from others and make any needed changes BEFORE adding it to the group. The judges will NOT look at it until it's added to the group.
Once you and your opponent have posted and added your entries to the group, the judges will vote on the mocs. There will be three judges for each matchup (divided by the brackets). You must receive 2 out of 3 votes to advance to the next round. The judges are NOT required to write full, detailed comments with their votes (but may if they choose to). The only thing required by a judge is which moc he’s voting for. Each judge’s decision is final.
Your judges are:
Brackets I and IV: Yuri Fassio, Moodswim and Chris Phipson.
Brackets II and III: El Barto, Tiler and Hans Dendauw
And now...LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!
Master Shifu Leo J vs Luke Johannesen
Life size object: Choose a real life object (anything you wish) and build it in brick! Please include a picture of yourself, or someone you’ve conned into helping you, with the object so that we can see the proper size.
Justin Knelsen vs The Beetle
Lord of the Rings: Think of this as the generic "castle" category but set in the Lord of the Rings universe. Simple enough, build us a scene from the LotR mythos. It does NOT have to include any "official" figs (feel
free to use any figs you wish) and it does NOT have to actually even be a scene from the movies or books if you don't want it to be. As
long as it's part of that "world" you're good. In contrast to the MocAthalon category, we're not looking for "set designs" here.
Ej! vs ChrisOtron
Three squares a day: Pretty straight forward on this one. Create a life size Lego "meal."
John Daniels vs Monsterlego
The future is now!: The year is 2100 and the future is here! What would a typical day be like? Show us a normal, everyday city scene from the distant future complete with flying cars and robots walking designer morph slugs or whatever happens to be going on in your future world. The size we’re looking for here is about one city block in minifig scale.
daevster vs Lego Builders
Sculpture: Leonardo did the Venus De Milo, Auguste Rodin gave us The Thinker. What will you give us? Produce a sculpture worthy of The Louvre. Choose a famous statue and show us your brick built version. Please provide a link to the original so we can compare.
Jelle Heijne vs Rogue Spartan
It's a Trap!: Ok, so your adventurer is deep within the catacombs or wherever his adventure has led him and then BAM, the trap is sprung. Give us a dio showing your adventure hero being killed by (or narrowly escaping, your choice) a trap set by those who did not wish their treasure disturbed. (Note: This does NOT have to be an "Indiana Jones" kind of thing. Adventurers looked for treasure in EVERY time period of history... and fiction.)
Bob the inconceivably invincible vs Garret Smith
Bricks of Character: Choose your favorite fictional character(s) and give us their LEGO facsimiles. It can be at any scale you choose, but must be brick-built.
Justin R. vs Chris Stone
A long time ago, in a category far, far away...: Ok you Klone Komandurs, now's your chance to show us what you can do! Build us a
Star Wars moc (dio or vig) based on any one of the 6 movies or Clone Wars TV show. We've left this wide open so let your imagination soar
and show us how strong you are with the force!
Those are your match-ups; direct any questions to the Questions thread. Good luck and happy building!~H Permalink
