Contests and build challenges are often a great way to get creative juices flowing. Check out our coverage of new contests here, and congratulate the winners of contests that have finished.

Jack Lightning’s Narrow Escape

As you may or may not have heard, we’re well into MOCpages’ 2012 MOCalathon. There are some fabulous creations coming out of this, and the one below by Imagine Rigney is no exception.

I have a bit of a soft-spot for the old Fabuland minifigures, so that definitely caught my eye. I like the scattered bits of shiny things, but what really gets me is the caricature of Walter. Who is apparently a devourer and something of a tomb-guardian. I bet you he just wants to play. Cats are weird like that.


Although I’ve been behind in my blogging lately, it seems like practically everything I add to my “to-blog” list is some form of think tank (tachikoma, fuchikoma, etc.). Crawling out from under my rock, I discover that there’s a contest going on, called Marchikoma. There are some pretty nice entries floating around, and here are some of my favorites.

Forbidden Cove’s Seed Part Challenge: Week Two

Forbidden Cove is running a multi-week Seed Part contest, where the entrants have one week to build a creation using that week’s Seed Part–and it can’t be whatever the part actually is. Week one was a classic flared helm; this week is a minifig’s chair piece.

Here are some of my favorite entries from week two, in no particular order:

Rapture of the Deep by Guy Himber

Once Cap’n Jack, Always Cap’n Jack by Bluesecrets

Enemy in Sight by Marco den Besten
