Colossal Castle Contest XII

Hi all,
First up, I just wanted to apologize for my six month hiatus. I've been blogging about LEGO for nine years now, and from time to time I've just gotten a bit run down and distracted from my family of blogs. However, in the meantime, I'm constantly going through Flickr, Brickshelf, and other sites, and probably every day I bookmark a few more things that I keep meaning to post. I've gotten a couple of nice notes asking where I've been, and I guess it's time to come back. Also, during the year I save up LEGO books to review as people are getting ready for Christmas, and want to get those posted. And so, back to blogging. Hopefully I won't have too many interruptions in the near future. I've certainly got a backlog of great creations to feature.

Okay, there are lots of great either recently completed or ongoing. I can't say I'll go back and feature everything from the last six months, but I'd be remiss if I didn't feature my favorite. I'm an admin at Classic-Castle and we're currently holding our annual contest:

Contest: Colossal Castle Contest XII
Hosted by: Classic-Castle

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

Hosted by: Builders' Lounge

Deadline: a month

Ordinary to Extraordinary

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.
