©2016 LEGO Group

Today we are launching our building competition to keep you busy over the holiday period.

We have four of set 6176782 Escape the Space Slug -- a hard-to-find Star Wars microscale vignette of a scene from the original trilogy -- to give away.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one is to build your own microscale Star Wars vignette. Think of a classic scene or location from one of the films and build it smaller than minifig scale, it's as simple as that!

Read the rules and find out how to enter after the break.


Prizes

There'll be four winners who will each receive a 6176782 Escape the Space Slug.


Rules

  • Models should be built from real bricks: no virtual submissions will be accepted.
  • Your vignette should be no larger than 8x16 studs and 20 bricks high. There should be no overhang on any side.
  • For the purposes of this competition microscale means smaller than minifig scale, so minifigs should not be included.
  • Your model can include any scene, location, vehicle or craft from any of the theatrical release Star Wars films, including The Last Jedi.
  • If you wish to model a vehicle or space ship, for example, you should also include an 8x16 section of terrain on which to display it.


Entries will be judged on the following criteria

  • Adherence to the rules
  • Likeness of the model to the scene being modelled
  • Building techniques and parts usage
  • Originality


How to enter

  • Upload a maximum of two images of your entry to the Brickset Flickr group set up for this competition, or post your entry on Instagram using the hashtag #BricksetSpaceSlugCompetition.
  • Your models should be new and unseen prior to this competition. Significantly updated models are permitted.
  • You may submit multiple entries.
  • Virtual creations in LDD, stud.io or other CAD program ARE NOT permitted. All submissions should be built with real bricks.


Small print

  • Please do not include any references to sex, drugs, alcohol etc. in your entry.
  • Custom and non-LEGO components are not permitted.
  • Although we will not be judging your photographic skills, please try to light your models evenly and photograph them against a clean background.
  • Please upload your entries by 23:59 GMT 31st December 2017
  • To give the judges time to properly consider all entries, winners will be announced by the end of January.
  • The judges' decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

*sigh*

Yet another contest I can't enter because you only allow entries to be posted on Flickr and Instagram.

Aww, I don’t have a Flickr account. Can’t participate this time :( Hope to win the set in the Rebrick contest instead

Are we allowed to have tiles on the edge like in the Architecture Skyline sets or would that fall under the "no overhangs" rule?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Strictly speaking yes, it would, but I feel it would be acceptable, so go ahead and use them if you wish.

I feel like this could be something I could enter - I'll have to see if I can sideline some time and Bricklink orders over the coming weeks. Interesting...

Sorry but I have yet another question:

The rules say: "For the purposes of this competition microscale means smaller than minifig scale, so minifigs should not be included."

But would it be okay to use a minifigure, just not as a human-sized character? Like, as a statue or something?

The Clone Wars animated movie had a theatrical release, does that make it available to use or are we limiting it to the live action films?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^ Yes

^ limiting it to the live action films.

Do the bases have to be 16x8 or can they be smaller? 16x6, for example?

Gravatar
By in Bulgaria,

^ I think that you can use any base under 8x16 :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ Correct.

By in United States,

Could I upload to YouTube? Or do I need to get a flicker account?

By in Ireland,

Do chibi figures count under the no figures rule? As in figures with a normal head but tiny brick built bodies?

Gravatar
By in United States,

For the size restrictions, does one side have to be 8 studs in length maximum? Could you have a 10x10 MOC instead, since its less than the 128 studs an 8x16 one would be?
