You may want to clarify the max number of pieces allowed. Description states no more than 300 pieces, but the contest rules state maximum of 350 pieces.

Does the entry have to use a collectable minifigure? Does it have to use a minifigure at all?

No, it is up to you whether or not you want to include minifigures.

Thank you to those who voted. Results: Grand prize was #1, runner up was the $50 Gift Card and 2nd prize is #3. Since no one picked second prize, we will combine it with the grand prize. This means the grand prize winner will now get 7 sets in total. :)

The more winners the better? I prefer 3 prizes instead of 2. Just my 2 cents.

I third, although I like the option (if you win 1st place) to pass and take a 'lesser' prize. Someone may already have the 1st place set, and want to pass on it.

This is just an update from Hoosier Brick. We will be closed for vacation from July 10-24(part of the reason this contest runs til end of August). We will be taking our summer road trip visiting various Baseball Stadiums/Amusement Parks/LEGO stores. This years itinerary takes us through Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and St Louis with all points in between! If you guys can think of anything that is a MUST DO in one of these cities please PM me. I love a local point of view on the best a city has to offer!

The store will have a bypass password setup so you can visit the store and place an order for immediate processing upon return. The password will be "vacation" without the quotation marks. You can still contact me via email, but response time will be more in the 24 hour range as opposed to a few hours normally. If you want your order shipped out by the morning of July 11 you must be paid by July 9. Any questions or comments please feel free to contact me here or on Bricklink.com!

Unfortunately, the prize distribution will stay like that. In fact, we were not planning to offer the Home One, Clone Walker and Assassin Droids Battle Pack for this contest to begin with! That was a completely a last minute thing that I added. :)

If you have a minifig in your entry, does it count as part of the 300 pieces?

In other contests it counted toward the maximum piece count. So if your minifig has a head, hair, torso and legs that would be four pieces. Now you have 296 left to build with...

I'm completely new here, so please excuse the naivety of my questions; I assume the vignette has to be summer themed? And does the baseplate count towards the 300 pieces?

thanks!

Greetings everyone!

Vacation is over :( But that means the store Hoosier Brick is back open for business! Remember to mention the TnB contest to receive your discount! The order is good for all parts, not just the ones used for this contest! I will be adding inventory that I collected over my trip from various locations so check back daily for new inventory starting tomorrow!

Sounds like a fun contest! Thanks for hosting it, I'll be sure to enter.

I was wondering, would minor overhang(s) be permitted, for example a tree's leaves and branches or minifigure accessories? In these cases they would extend perhaps 1 or 2 studs over the base. Thanks in advance. :-)

As long as the majority of the vig is inside the 10x10 base a little overhang is fine.

*]Baseplate must be 10X10 (you can connect pieces to make a 10X10 plate)
Is that supposed to be 10x10 studs? For some reason I read that as 10x10 inches which is a 32x32 stud plate! I was thinking... how would you fit 300 pieces onto a 10stud plate, it must be 32x32! DOH!
