Reminder: the cut off is September 19, 2008. Late additions will not be accepted.
The following list is for my own purposes. As figures are constructed and I'm informed, your fig will move to the appropriate list.

With all the whispers of the upcoming BrickCon 2008
, it's now time to put the all call out for your sigfigs.
For newcomers to the community, your sigifig is your plastic representation of yourself. This does not have to be castle-y for our purposes; not everyone has a castle oriented sigfig. While preferred, it's certainly not required.
The ultimate goal is to get as many sigfigs from CC as possible, line em all up, and take a picture. Pretty simple, right? Here's a look at previous photos:
BrickFest PDX 2007
Northwest BrickCon 2007
There are ALL sorts of figs there. It's a ton of fun. Don't worry, though: sigfigs will be treated with the utmost respect, and will not be placed in compromisingsituations
(Unless, of course, you'd like them to be, and I assure you the CC attendees would be more than happy to oblige in sigfig abuse.)
Please also be aware that any fig posted in this thread WILL be present in the photo. Sometimes it’s hard to see since there are so many figs, but I can assure you, everyone will be represented. (Keep in mind that LEGO is not an easy medium to photograph under the best conditions, and this is taken at a convention. With lots of bad lighting.)
Since I said it so aptly when I posted this for BFPDX and NWBC07, I'll just plagiarize my own post:
Please be sure to bring your sigfig with you. Once the schedule for NWBC becomes more apparent, I'll figure out a time for the figs to assemble somewhere in the display for the picture. All signs point to sometime Saturday. Details for us will be worked out later.
FOR NON ATTENDEES:
You have a choice! You can either A) Post in this thread or send me a PM detailing what your fig looks like, or B) if you have a custom fig, you can send it to me and I'll be sure it gets returned to you.
For Option A: You MUST provide picture reference for your fig. For example, my sigfig is this:
It's a clear photo, and it's easy to reference the torso, face, hair, and legs. If you don't have a photo and aren't able to take one, please browse either Peeron
and give us the references. This makes it easier on us, the attendees, to construct your figs. If you have a particularly rare piece for any of it, please also consider alternatives: If your sigfig uses the forestwoman torso, for example, or the white ninja, please give us a cheaper, easier-to-find alternative. With the massive collections between the attendees, we should be able to construct your fig, but we'd like a back up plan.
For Option B: Please send me a PM, and I will let you know what snail-mail address to send your fig to. If at all possible, Option A would be best, because it has less room for the USPS to err and lose your fig.
But if you really want YOUR fig to be there, we'll do what we can. Just shoot me a PM.
After NWBC, photos will be posted in a myriad of sites. I'll have mine in my flickr
account, and I'm sure plenty will be on various image hosting sites that are used by the community.
Pleas post photos of your fig prior to SEPTEMBER 19, 2008.
This is earlier than before; it will give us more time to construct them all. If you are sending me your fig, PM me no later than September 15. I must receive the fig prior to September 30.
(Attendees: shoot me a PM to let me know if you would be able to help construct SigFigs. I'd like to avoid duplicates, but I'd rather have those then not at all. Thanks!)
If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Just post em' here.
