Theme Contest: December 2006: "Star Trek / Star Wars Anniversaries" Theme

"Star Wars / Star Trek Anniversaries" Theme

The December Theme Contest will be a combination STAR WARS / STAR TREK Theme Contest. This will commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek and the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. The sponsors are: Jeff, Rob G., Ray, Scott, and your humble narrator, Bobby P. As you may notice, that’s a lion share of the sci-fi modelers of the club. I’ve designed entry forms that will have a registration number and not names on it. We will, likely, have other people judge this one so we may enter the contest as well.

The theme: Build any Star Wars or Trek kit. This is to celebrate 30 / 40 years of the best science fiction that world had ever known. There are TONS of kits out there to kit any taste, style and budget. I recently ran a search for “Star Wars Model” on ebay and found anything from dirt-cheap plastic kits all the way up to limited edition resin kits. There WILL be something out there for you too!

With that said we already have a plan for awards, and many certificates for certain works that may include (but not limited to this list. The list may change in time before the contest) :
  • Most Bad-Assed Starship
  • Best Cross-Over / What If
  • Unusual Paint Job
  • Best Hot Rod
  • Best Legs
  • Best Figure
  • You came in that???
  • Best Weathered
  • Coolest Hero
  • Toughest Adversary
  • Best Use of Lego
Who can honestly say they don’t have a single Star Trek or Star Wars model in their stacks? So we hope to see a lot of people try something different and build for this. If you should have any questions, feel free to speak with the sponsors directly.
