Stop What you're doing. Go buy a Hobbit AND Lotr set. (You may buy more than one of each, but NO LESS than one of each) Come back. Build them. Use the pieces for Mocs. End of story.

An elimination round is a round where you build-off against another person, the judges judge, and one person loses and is eliminated. There Can Be Only One.

I'll give my best shot at this:
Disturbing as in it would be classified as if you would put Content Warning for the MOC so that it would show up in groups and such as (Title Hidden) and Parental Guidance suggested.

Other than that, I think you're good!

The Silmarillion isn't allowed because this contest is more focused on what happened in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings books/movies.

The Silmarillion isn't allowed because this contest is more focused on what happened in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings books/movies.

Okay, I was just wondering because technically a lot of stuff in Lord of The Rings is disturbing. Like a flaming man committing suicide/giant spiders/well you get the picture. And on tue Silmarillion, I totally understand. It's a lot less well known and thus harder to build/judge.
