Colossal Castle Contest II

The CC Team is proud to announce our second annual building contest: The Colossal Castle Contest II. It will begin on November 1st and end on December 31st, 2004.

This contest is a bit different than other contests. We have a variety of categories each with one prize for the winner. Some categories require small creations and others need larger ones. Everyone, even with a limited supply of bricks, should be able to enter several categories. We are looking for creativity, not who has the most LEGO.

Check out the prizes.

Seven LEGOLAND Castle sets are prizes. There are several additional sets, custom weapons, and various other prizes. It truly is colossal! Thank you to LEGO, the Little Armory, Red Bean Studio, and others who donated prizes. The rules can be found here.

Enjoy! Discuss the contest and any questions you may have.

Please read the rules page :wink:

You are allowed two entries per category and you can enter each category (except master builder because that works a bit differently). So I believe you can enter 14 mocs into the contest.

Entries are judged by the admins on a points scale based on playability, creativity and details.

Unofficial Response:

I don't think you need to own a clasic wall to enter that category. I believe you only need to build something that can connect with a classic wall. Same height and all that. However, I am not an admin and I have nothing to do with the planning or running of this contest, so I could be wrong.

Rogue is correct! We don't have any categories that require you to have a particular part - and using regular bricks instead of pre-fab wall pieces is never a bad thing.

No. Your moc should fit into a LEGOLAND Castle wall. If you do not have the large wall pieces, that is ok. However you must build a wall section in the style (height, width) of King's Castle, Black Falcon's Fortress, Black Monarch's Castle, etc and have a shop/building attached to it. Example sets for ideas are the guarded inn, old blacksmith shop, armor shop, etc. Your wall should have technic 1x2 bricks with a pin so it can connect to a larger LEGOLAND Castle.

About the LEGOLAND castle wall, does it matter if it is on a "high edge" or a "low edge" if it meets all the requirements? Then I may have an entry...

Hello :D

For the category "siege weapons", can be inclued a machine that is built for other creatures than humans ???
I ask that because I have a mobile tower for goblins...

And if I win a price (I live out the USA), what must I do to obtain it ???

Yes, that is fine. The only requirement is that it is medieval and it is a seige weapon of some sort. Minifig scale is preferable, but not necessary.

And if I win a price (I live out the USA), what must I do to obtain it ???


Generally, we have you pay the excess shipping of what it would be to ship within the US unless its not that expensive to begin with (I've seen some airmail prices that are quite comparable to US Priority Mail).

Awesome!

I will definatly enter.

However - is there a category for just a "castle"? I think there was a category for this last year - I know that you are going for something unique, but the lack of a place to put a nice medium/large fortress is somewhat dissapointing.

I am getting ideas for the tudor house entry though :D

Actually, we tried to taylor our categories to our prizes. But if what you build doesn't match the available categories - may I remind you that we have a Misc. category, too.
