Time and time again, LEGO has had a great idea and messed up by making the model too small. So, this contest is simple: Make ANY Star Wars ship in minifig scale. I will be judging the ships using Wookieepedia's statistics, so check there for official dimensions. This is the formula for calculating minifig scale:
Official Length in meters multiplied by 39.37 (this converts it to inches) divided by 48 (assuming a LEGO minifig is 6 feet tall)
So a ship 10 meters long should be built 8.2020833 inches long.
An easier way is to build by studs. Assuming you will be building traditionally, take
The Official Minifig-Scale length in inches divided by 5 and multiplied by 16
So our 10 meter long ship is to be built 26.246665 studs long.
There will be two prizes of equal value, the first place winner will pick one, and the other prize will go to the second place winner.
1. Choose which of my customs I will post instructions for. Yes, this is your chance to learn how to build one of my customs!
2. Post a list of 5 lightsaber hilts you want to see built, and I will make one of them.
There will also be a third prize:
3. The 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd place entries wiil be rated 5/5 by me.
The Contest runs until March 31st. You MUST put the words "Minifig-Scale Contest Entry" in your entry title.
Good luck, and may the Force be with you. Oh wait, according to Obi-Wan, there is no such thing as luck, only the Will of the Force.
I agree! The MTT is supposed to fit 116 troops! But if LEGO made it fit that many figs, it would cost waaaaay too much. Example: The Republic Attack Gunship. Barely any clones and yet it still costs so much. So a set with 116 minifigs...you get the point... Anyways, can I join?
