Oh dear…
Unforntunatly, I do not have Megabloks, so I’m still not entering the contest for that.
Darg, Lego’s so evil!
But I do feel sorry for them being so stupid turning the Star Wars minifigs pink fleashed. :roll
Quick Edit: Wait a minute, this gives me an idea for a short film…

So LEGO likes the fact that we are doing this, but hates us because we are using thir products? That’s messed up.

I don’t know, I didn’t feel that the 10BC was any less important for me than it would have been if held by brickfilms.com. It wasn’t as big of course.

I think there are some renowned people here who could take over the current event and it wouldn’t be any less important or “official”. We all know who initiated the contest and that should be enough to make it a brickfilms.com contest in our eyes.

Not using LEGO products will be a big problem for some people. As has been said in another thread, there are no Megabloks or Best-locks over here in Germany as of yet. Ordering them from abroad will take some time and people will first have to figure out what sets and how many of them they need, how to animate the different figures and so on. Let alone any financial problems a new collection of bricks might cause, especially for younger contestants.

I’m not going to enter for lack of time in the next months, but I still hope for a classic brickfilms contest and look forward to the entries, regardless whether they use LEGO bricks or not.

As bad as this is, I think I finally got the push I needed to take the next step. I’ve had this idea to use Bionicle figures as armatures for Latex puppets. They have ball joints and are arguably a lot cheaper than actual steel armatures. Now I’ll just have to start practicing my sculpting and figure out how this puppet production business works.

Stefan, going full speed ahead, never looking back!

Can’t we make this contest non-commercial? No prizes and no DVD? As far as i understood it’s then ok to use lego.
I don’t have other stopmotion figures so..

Or we just screw up TLC and ignore them :D
(yes i know this is no option)

lets stand and fight, for all that is well and true, together we can crush the great empire, know to many as lego.

We shall not bow down to our opressers, I have nothing. lego Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and children.

Those men who bled the ground red at the lego shop fought for the animation of bricks. He fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him.

I saw it in his face on the battlefield and it’s tearing me apart. All men betray. Ancestors, I ask you for your guidance. Blessed mother, come to me with the Gods’ desire for my future.

Blessed father, watch over my wife and son with a ready sword. Whisper to them that I live only to hold them again, for all else is dust and air.

Ancestors, I honor you and will try to live with the dignity that you have taught me. All lose heart.

so lets not bow down to lego.

The letter looks official, and I think RevMen could get into a lot of trouble if he made such a thing up. For one thing, the LEGO legal people wouldn’t be happy with an impersonation such as this.

No, I am afraid this thing is true, and to me the only immediate solution seems to be transferring the contest over to someone else. At any other time I’d have loved to take over the running of this contest, but unfortunately my graduation project demands a lot of my time right now.

I’m not quite sure exactly how to respond to this just yet. But I will say this:

Please do not complain to LEGO directly. This forum is the appropriate place. Ultimately this is Josh’s site and Josh’s company. I want him to collect all of our thoughts and then send them to the proper people. It is his responsibility.

Some of us (and you know who you are) are prone to being overexcited and tend to talk before you think, the last thing I want to see, is us being given a bad reputation by some unprofessional e-mails and letters.

So, I repeat: DO NOT complain to LEGO right away. Let Josh use the proper methods.

On a side note. Was there an e-mail address attached? For I would like to give them a piece of my mind.
