I'd like to pop in amidst the chaotic madness to point out that I have updated the building guidelines and the new standards can be viewed in that thread.
This was done for two reasons.
Firstly, I'd like to encourage more dynamic color schemes in the theme, as the yellow stripe (while recognizable) is becomming a bit obsolete. Feel free to continue using it as you wish, but you may also want to create your own system to go along with, say for example, a new military unit that utilizes camouflage, or an intimidating red blaze, or pink to distract the terrorists! Actually, let's try to stay away from pink...
Secondly, I've felt the desire to expand on the theme for ages, and I just feel creatively constrained by the coloring limitations.
You can expect a new generation of MA MOCs coming your way over the next few weeks, and I hope some of you will use these less-stingy standards to you advantage and come up with some amazing additions to the theme!
PS: I'm still waiting on the Somali Terrorist Pirate Ninja Mech. Who wants to tackle that? Permalink
