Custom Minifig Contest #1: Fantasy

 
This will be a pretty simple contest: Design a custom fantasy minifig, and post a photo of it. Easy! The "Fantasy" theme specifically means medieval fantasy or ancient mythology - not sci-fantasy or steampunk or anything like that - those will probably come later. Your minifig can be based on a fantasy universe (Lord of the Rings, Dungeons & Dragons, Legend of Zelda, etc. etc. etc.), or from your own head! It can also be based on a character from one of those universes, or it can be a completely original character. Note: if your entry is based on our own fantasy world of Wulfgard then you're eligible for an extra prize!*

 

Only LEGO entries are accepted, but you may use off-brand accessories of any and all kinds, including stickers from Saber-Scorpion's Lair! Feel free to cut, paint, use clay - whatever you like. Or you can go purist, if that's your thing.

 

JUDGING & PRIZES

A panel of 5 judges will decide the winner for the contest. So far the judges are Saber-Scorpion, Maverick-Werewolf, and Brickshipyard. Each winner will get a code they can use to take a certain amount of money off one order from my shop (it also subtracts from shipping, so your order can be completely free!) and a medal icon added to their account here on the forums as seen in the Hall of Fame!
 

1st Place Prize = $24 shop code & gold medal

2nd Place Price = $16 shop code & silver medal

3rd Place Prize = $10 shop code & bronze medal

 

*Wulfgard themed entries will also receive a Wulfgard bookmark and a big pile of Wulfgard minifig stickers if they win! And possibly even if they don't win!

 

New rule: For every 5 contestants who enter the contest, I will add $1 to each prize!* It's a very easy contest to enter, so spread the word, and you could win even more stuff!

I plan to enter as well. Can two characters be in one entry? What I mean is, can I have two characters be twins and put them both in as one entry?

Hmm... I suppose so, if they are strongly themed together - like, their costumes match or they fit together in some way. If they just seem like two very different, independent characters who just happen to be twins, then I would have to ask you to enter them both separately. Otherwise it seems possibly unfair to allow two entries in one. Hopefully this makes sense. :)

Actually, I may not have time. I'll enter if I free up some time, though if not, I'm officially revoking my entry reservation. Sorry. :P

The month just started, my dude, so you should have plenty of time! :) And there are usually some people who ask for an extension right near the end, and I usually grant it, haha. And I may just extend it anyway, if we don't start getting entries... :P

 

We have a volunteer judge already though: Brickshipyard. Still 2 slots open for judging, if anyone wants to volunteer. Nova Patrons/Members get dibs.

I would love to judge, but I'd also like to enter. I'm assuming the two aren't compatible  :lego_grin:

Here's my entry, entitled "Gemini"! Hope you like it and the brief backstory I included! (PS I apologize for the low camera quality; if you click on the picture it will enlarge so you can see the details.)

I am quaking with fear at how good Nightstalker's eventual entry is going to be.

I'll try and get another entry in soon.

Oy! Don't be scared of me. Trust me, what I'm coming up with is easily beatable!

 

I'm honestly curious to see what all the entries will be. Again, there are some really awesome customizers on SSLF.

ONE WEEK LEFT IN THE CONTEST as it currently stands!

 

If anyone is still working on an entry and needs a time extension, let me know. I may just extend it anyway and try to round up some more entries... Haven't decided yet.

Sorry, Scorp. Been meaning to do this, I just haven't really been in the mood (or maybe just really lazy :P ).

 

I'll see if I can get something up soon (maybe even later today).

 

One question though: Are entirely brick-built "minifigures" okay?

I'm literally waiting the parts for my entry.

 

Hopefully, I won't need an extension.

Hmm, can you be more specific? Maybe give an example of what you're thinking?
