MMMissed it

Hmm, somehow I missed this. Lowlug, a Dutch LEGO group, recently held their Mini MOC Madness, or MMM contest. This contest each year challenges entrants to build 16x16 scenes based on a theme, which this year was "on vacation". And the winner is Marakoeschtra (Martin Jaspers), with his Delay.

For some reason I'm not able to directly link the photo off of Lowlug's site, so you'll have to go there to see his entry. When he posts it somewhere like Brickshelf or Flickr I'll be sure to highlight it here.

Coming in at a very close second (by only one vote) is Jovel's Oh what fun, a ravine. (BTW, I'd be happy to be corrected on my translations, which used the AltaVista Babel Fish engine.)

Ninjas vs. Pirates contest

There will be a Ninjas vs. Pirates vignette contest at BrickWorld, a LEGO event being held June 21-24 in Illinois. Go to the official BrickWorld site for more information on this fest.



Rules (from Dave's Lugnet post):
• Use only LEGO brand pieces
• You can enter more than 1 vignette, but you can only win 1 prize
• 10X10 stud size limit on width and length, There is no height limit
• No carnage limit
• You and your MOC have to be present at BrickWorld to be entered

A panel of judges will decide the winners.

Please keep in mind that this is not a Ninjas OR Pirates contest. Each vignette must have something representing both Ninjas and Pirates and their enmity towards each other.

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. To enter the contest, bring your entry to BrickWorld and tag it with your name.

Some men are born vigs, others have vigginess thrust upon them

I just rented A Night at the Museum last weekend, so I immediately recognized this series of vigs by LennyLumas.
