The following list is for me and the other attendees who are constructing figs to reference. This list means you've signed up in the thread. If the name is bolded, it means I have confirmation that your fig is already built. If it's not bolded, don't panic--your fig will be there.CastleLordHob TookBruceFoamrider Garbageman13 AzaghalShadowViking

With all the whispers of the upcoming BrickCon 2009
, it's now time to put the all call out for your sig-figs.
For newcomers to the community, your sig-fig is your plastic representation of yourself. This does not have to be castle-y for our purposes; not everyone has a castle oriented sig-fig. While preferred, it's certainly not required.
The ultimate goal is to get as many sig-figs from CC as possible, line em all up, and take a picture. Pretty simple, right? Here's a look at previous photos:BrickFest PDX 2007Northwest BrickCon 2007BrickCon 2008 BrickFest PDX 2009
There are ALL sorts of figs there. It's a ton of fun. Don't worry, though: sig-figs will be treated with the utmost respect, and will not be placed in compromising situations
(Unless, of course, you'd like them to be, and I assure you the CC attendees would be more than happy to oblige in sig-fig 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 terribly bad lighting.)
Since I said it so aptly when I posted this for the past two BrickFests and BrickCons, I'll just plagiarize my own post:FOR ATTENDEES:
Please be sure to bring your sig-fig with you. Once the schedule for BrickCon 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:
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 sig-fig 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 BrickCon, 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 18, 2009.
If you are sending me your fig, PM me no later than September 10. I must receive the fig prior to September 30.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Just post em' here.
