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 has announced their third annual Jolly Roger Contest. Head on over to check out the fabulous Prizes and Categories, as well as the Contest Rules. Make sure you read the rules carefully, as some of the categories have different requirements.
Entries must be submitted by April 30. In order to enter, you must be a member of Forbidden Cove, and you do need to be at least 16.
Best of luck!
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
There were a ton of simply amazing entries this year into Classic-Castle‘s annual contest. I tell myself each year I’m going to blog all of my favorites, and every year there are so many I fall drastically behind.
But! For your viewing pleasure, some of my favorites. I’m so glad I’m not judging.
In no particular order:
Fiant’s Lord of the North:
Koffiemoc‘s Maison de la Motte
Shmail‘s San Kastel
Noah McClung‘s Operation “Chimney Sweep”
Lolino‘s Secret of the Holy Grail
