Iron Builder 3.0 Round 12

Contest: Iron Builder 3.0 Round 12
Hosted by: Builders' Lounge
The Iron Builder round from the last post started off with a live build-off. The video is a couple of hours long, with lots of AFOLs chiming in and discussing, and I haven't yet watched the whole thing, but the actual build-off starts about 9 minutes in and you can see the initial two MOCs at about 20 minutes.

Iron Builder 3.0 Round 12

Contest:
Hosted by: Builders' Lounge
Description/categories: Okay, the Duplo grass challenge was a joke, but now Siercon and Coral are facing off against Legohaulic and Littlehaulic to build as many MOCs as they can based on Mixels sets and specifically the yellow round 2x1 slope.

Ordinary to Extraordinary

Contest:
Hosted by: LEGO
Description/categories: Build a model of something ordinary, and then rebuild it as super-cool. Think of the part of the LEGO Movie where they rebuild all of their normal vehicles - trash trucks, ice cream trucks, etc - and make them into fighting vehicles to defend against Lord Business and his micro-managers.
Deadline: Not sure. There doesn't seem to be a real rigid rules page for this.
