The new LEGO Speed Champions cars came with awesome models of supercars and great new pieces. After the big success of this theme, I came up with the idea to this contest.
To participate, build a LEGO car, in Speed Champions style, that LEGO could release as a set.
The goal here is to create a car is Speed Champions style, so your MOC needs to have some things in common with the official sets. You should build it in 6 wide scale and should allow to place a minifigure inside.
Your car should be a replica of a real life car. It doesn’t necessary need to be a supercar, you can try to model any car you want like a urban vehicle, a jeep or a Le Mans prototype. Although it needs to be recognizable.
Since LEGO used stickers on their models, you are allowed to use LEGO official stickers or custom stickers on your model. But you’ll loose some creativity points if you use stickers for everything instead of trying to find solutions with LEGO parts.
It’s recommended to use some new parts introduced by Speed Champions sets on your MOC, like the wheels. Using them will make your model get some extra points for looking more like a Speed Champions car.
Each person can participate with a maximum of 2 cars (separately).
The contest deadline is May 31st.
The judging is done by me. The criteria I’m going to use is the following:
Car accuracy (45 points out of 100): how recognizable your car is. It’s important your model replicates nicely the real car you are trying to build.
Speed Champions style (35 points out of 100): if your car keeps the Speed Champions style, like, if it has the same scale, similar building techniques and overall look. Basically, if it could be used as a Speed Champions set, or fit well on a Speed Champions display.
Creativity (20 points out of 100): how much you elaborated some solutions for your build. Taking ideas from the Speed Champions sets won’t penalize you since that’s the main idea of the contest.
Any questions not cleared should be clarified with me on the “Questions” topic.
