Announcing: Colour it Blacktron II Contest

Postby Admiral Netsooj » Wed Apr 27, 2011 10:20 pm

Well, some of you have been waiting for it, others have not, but should have, but here it is!

Colour it Blacktron II Contest!

Things are a little different then last one. This time, you can build any old creation OR an official set In the colour scheme of Blacktron I, or II

Rules:

-NO clone brands (Custom pieces are fine)
-Digital entries are allowed
-No piece or size limit (Do the UCS Millienium Falcon if you so please)
-No Blacktron 3 please. Lets try to keep it to the original themes, shall we?

Contest will end June 30, whatever timezone you see fit.

Prizes (assuming my Bricklink order comes through):

1st Place: A used 6894 Invader complete with instructions, with a Blacktron II minifig

2nd place: A used 6832 Super Nova 2, without instuctions.

It's not much, but it's something, and hopefully it will make you want to build some Blacktron, whether it be I or II

On the last note, check out This. It should be quite useful in determing the correct colour scheme for both Blacktrons.

Now go build!

Oh, and if an admin could sticky this topic, that would be much appreciated

Just a quick little update.

The bricklink order is on it's way, so the prizes are assured, unless my mail services screws up.

And not one reply yet? Usually someone has a question by now... Oh well. If no one enters, I might have to keep the prizes myself... :D

I would enter...

The only problem is that I've got no Blactron at all!

But I can't wait to see the entries!

Good luck to all who enter!

I've actually built an entry, I just haven't photographed/posted it. I'm hoping to be the only entry and win it all.

I do have a question, though. I'm using a this but it doesn't come in Trans Yellow (for the BT1 color scheme). Is this okay?
NEW: I have a flickr account! Check it out!

That certianitly is one way to win it.

To answer your question, yes, that canopy can be used. I have seen enough exellent Blacktron creations that use Smoke canopies that I feel it is alright.

EDIT: 200 posts!

I'm planning on entering. I haven't decided what to enter just yet...All my bricks are packed up for the move in June, so it'll be one of my digital MOCs.

Sorry, but since you built this MOC before the contest, I am going to say no.

And Impudent Moose, you entry does not have to be a ship. It can be any old creation or official set.
