Contest: The Flag of your Kingdom - winner announced

Postby Bluesecrets » Mon Aug 01, 2016 12:30 pm

Contest: The Flag of your Kingdom

The concept: Pick a LEGO flag and build a castle kingdom for it.
The twist: Castle flags will score lower than flags from other LEGO categories. Yep, I said that. So feel free to build a kingdom of the Black Falcon, but know that it won’t score as high as say the Kingdom of Lightning McQueen (Please note…I have no idea if there is in fact a Lightning McQueen flag…I was just picking some LEGO set that I know wasn’t castle.)

The rules:
1) Pick an existing LEGO flag.
2) Build a kingdom for that flag. Oh and it should go without saying that the flag should be in the build.
3) Size restrictions: It has to fit on a 48x48 baseplate. If you don’t build on the baseplate, please take a picture with your build on the baseplate so we can see that it fits the dimensions. Please do not ask if your build can have the same number of studs in area but different size than a 48x48. The answer will be no.
4) No custom parts or stickers please.
5) You can build one entry so make it good.
6) Please make sure you follow the TOS for your builds. Staff reserves the right to remove builds that violate it.
7) Anyone can compete…including me since I am not the judge this time.
8. Pictures do whatever makes you happy but please remember forum rules for posting.

The prize:
Set 6103 but it has no box and no instructions. Essentially, it is six very cool figs with accessories.

Time frame:
Ready set…GO! Contest ends August 31st midnight EST (server time)

To make it easy for the judge, please post your entry in this thread:

And if anyone wants to make a cool image for this contest, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to use it. I'm not feeling the image creating vibe this morning.

Looks like a very fun contest! I have an idea that I'll try to get in.
That prize is amazing :D

Blue,

I have a couple of questions:

1. Are we talking any livery? Or just one that actually appears on a flag? I.e. if a faction appears on a shield, but LEGO never made a flag with that same faction, is that excluded?
e.g. shield and flag: Image Image
shield only: Image


2. Are we just talking about the 2x2 square flags with clips?
Image
Or are we talking any type of flag element (2x2, 4x6, odd-shapes, long banners, ones made of abs, ones made of vinyl, ones made of cloth, etc)?

Excellent questions! I was waiting for these.

Yep that would be excluded because it has to be on a flag.

2. Are we just talking about the 2x2 square flags with clips, or are we talking any type of flag element (2x2, 4x6, odd-shapes, long banners, ones made of abs, ones made of vinyl, ones made of cloth, etc)?


Those are totally good to use and count.

One last question (for now). If a pattern shows up on a LEGO flag piece, but was not originally intended as a flag for some sort of faction, could we use that as our inspiration anyway?

Looks like a great contest!
Are both minifig and micro scales permitted? Is one preferred?
Are builds smaller than 48x48 permitted, or should all entries be exactly those dimensions?

You can build micro or minifig scale. It is whatever you prefer. Yes, it can be smaller than 48x48. But please make sure to take a picture of it on a 48x48 if possible so the judge can see that it is within the size restriction.

Interesting contest - I'm mulling over a couple of ideas!

Question - the goal is to build a "castle" kingdom. Is "castle" our usual timeframe of medieval times, or can it include more wacky types of castles like Nexo knights with lasers/robots/aliens/etc?

I will get back to you on that one. I need to think about it for a little while before I answer.
