CABGO III Contest Announcement & Discussion

Post by Rook on Mon Apr 30, 2012 7:29 pm



CABGO III!

Ok well it is officially after 12am on May 1st, 2012 in some parts of the world. DarthPineapple and I have been hammering out the details for a few days and we’re still hoping on a few more prizes but here it is!

SO READ THIS COMPLETELY, THEN READ IT AGAIN! Wow this thing looks Wink


Original Announcement Regarding Requests for Prizes:

Good morning, afternoon, evening, & night:

Many of you know that I’m an ADMIN over on theCABG.net . Every time that there’s an Olympics the CABG holds their own MOC Olympics or CABGO. This is our third time running this and we’re looking for prize sponsors. We’re not looking for much. The idea is several people/businesses throw in several small things that in the end we can compile some great prizes packs. We have 3 categories of competition. If you choose to donate prizes you can specify which prize pool category you wish to donate to.

We have Guild Members vs. New Members (Non-Guild Members) and they have to build 2 MOCs to enter. This competition category will be referred to as Biathlon Category (2 MOCs).

We have Guild Members vs. Moderators and they have to build 3 MOCs to enter. This competition category will be referred to as Triathlon Category (3 MOCs = first 2 MOCs, plus another).

We have Guild Members vs. Moderators vs. ADMIN and they have to build 5 MOCs to enter. This competition category will be referred to as Pentathlon Category (5 MOCs = first 3 MOCs, plus 2 more).

I personally am donating prizes (full PaB Cups) to the Biathlon & Triathlon levels because I will not be competing in those categories. I’d like the largest prize pool to go towards the Biathlon Category, then the Triathlon Category, and finally the least amount of prizes in the Pentathlon Category since this will have the fewest amount of competitors in it probably because contestants will have to build 5 MOCs in the 3 month time period.

If you wish you can send a lump package to me and I can forward it to the winners. Or if you prefer I can have the winners contact you directly (or I could contact you with their mailing info). Note the voting won’t be until the end of the summer since the contest runs from June 1 to August 31. However the official announcement is coming May 1st. If you interested/able to donate prizes please reply by then and include a list, link, and/or image (image preferred) regarding the prizes you are donating.

Thanks again for everything that you do in the Community, ADMIN ROOK

I have two questions. May we ask questions here? And can we include more than 1 picture of our MOC if it only requires 1?

Update from Dutch. Here's a look at one the prizes! I'll assign this one to the Biathlon prizes for now. (Prize includes round stand and gun.)

Steadibrick from Flickr, and fellow member of ToroLUG, has offered more to the prize pools!

I've got a Snowtrooper Battle Pack (8084) and Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter (8093), both new in box. You are welcome to them for CABGO III.

Just thought of this, but does the theme have to be an official Lego theme for category 1? Or can it be fan made? And for the historical build, does it have to be true history? Or can it be Fiction-y, e.i. Captain America took place during WWII (I am pretty sure), but we all know he doesn't and didn't exist.

K, and on other things. Embarassed Do the characters have to be official? For example I don't like the way some of the official characters looks, can I use a custom?

The idea is to make the playing field even. Everyone should have access to two minifigures from the same theme. Everyone may not have access to custom figs. Unless rook says otherwise I think it would be safe to say official figures only.

Halen's got it.

MOCs 1 & 2 are set up to even the playing field between Guildies and Non-Guildies. We have some Guildies that would crush everyone with custom minifigures in MOCs 1 & 2 because the builds are designed to simpler.

However you'll notice MOCs 3&5 are wide open for the custom minifigure field. This where custom minifigures might give that builder that extra edge needed to crush some of the seasoned MODs and then ADMIN. Wink

However you bring up a good point.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clarification for Minifigures in MOC 1 & MOC 2:


Use all parts as depicted on BrickSet Figure Image. All other accessories are optional.

Yes it does imply "only" 2 in the wording.

Edited to read "ONLY 2".

Yeah I've already started shredding some current MOCs to free up the bricks. I'm going to try to see if I can actually have all 5 in one final image rather than my usual build, shoot, and shred cycle.

Note: guys really you don't need bricklink to make something to win the contest. Though it does help. :p You just have to expand your ideas. Wink

Very much true. Also I don't know where, but Rook once said something like this- "I officially became a Builder when I took my collection for parts." This is tempting yet I think of excuses not to. If you need parts, thats a way to do some. Become a true BUILDER.

@LazerBlade might wanna check "thought" Wink
