Scratch and Overwatch's 2014 Minifig Contest

Postby Scratch » Sun Jan 12, 2014 3:05 am

Due to the recent event of Overwatch having a bunch of excess steam codes, he decided to do the forum a favor from the bottem of his cold, dead, withered, and black heart and sponsor a Minifig contest.

There will be three catagories, you can submit one minifig to each, but don't have to.

Firstly is the Fire and Blood catagory, this will be a figure where the main focus of the figure is on either fire or blood. The first place prizes for this contest are Little Inferno or Surgeon Simulator 2013, the winner gets a choice of which one and the second place gets the other one. (These can be either purist or custom.)

Secondly, there is the purist catagory, which means only Lego-company produced pieces, no cutting, gluing, or 3rd party pieces (Brickarms etc). Prizes are To the Moon or Papa & Yo, winner gets their pick and second place gets the other one.

Finally, there is the custom catagory, this is where you can modify to your heart's content. Prizes are either Bit Trip Runner 2, or Gemini Rue, winner gets their pick, second place gets the other one.

Judging will be done by a panel of Myself, Overwatch, and Silverdream, since I had the idea, Overwatch had the games, and Silverdream was on chat.
Judging for judges figs will be done by Bricksyd, for his good work for the cause of purist figs.

Note that you must have Steam in order to recieve prizes.

All profits will go to the Colette memorial foundation for Ovarian cancer.

It will be evaluated after everyone submits. Not that it's bad now, but just remember that this contest is still a WIP so you have plenty of time to make the minifig the best it can be.

I extra resized my images, but imgur refuses to listen. Looks like I have to get a new dropbox account.

Anyways, is this sufficient for Blood or do I have to enter it in custom?
