Here's an interesting idea. Put the UFO contest entry in the Indiana Jones universe. I'm sorry if it doesn't fit all the criteria, but I've got another vignette too. I tried to make this movie accurate, but it was hard to do without straying too much from the contest's concept. I at least had Indy holding a bandana to represent a blindfold he just took off.
By the way, I don't see what's wrong with mixing Indiana Jones and aliens. It's sort of been done before. Have any of the people complaining about it ever heard of "Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine"?
Edit: By the way, my Indiana Jones minifig was inspired by the one Shannon Young did.
Edit: I am incredibly pleased to announce that this MOC made the front page of this site. Awesome, huh?
this is cool, i really like the bonus pic. it looks like the millennium falcon! tell me if i'm right on one of my creations. P.S I read a comic and it had indy and short round finding the millennium falcon crashed in the pacific northwest. they also found remains of han solo!
First! I rated excellent but meant very good. I'm a softy on first ratings, so here you go! Easy to see where you got some inspiration, but I respect every entry. A pitty there's not much green in it...
