Please only enter new builds, there is no size limit, but I do ask that you include which set you used as a starting point and using a higher percentage of the parts from the set will count in your favour - so a clever alternate build of a Mixel that uses every part included will likely score better than using a UCS set as a starting point and only using 5% of the parts. Post a maximum of two images per entry below, as many entries as you want. Entries close at midnight in the UK on the last day of the month.
There will be a small prize for the winner, a lucky dip from the polybag/mixel pool I have, but really this is just intended as a bit of fun. The winner will be chosen on the last day of the month and announced on the first of the following along with the next contest.
If all those mentioned could please PM me their addresses I will get prizes out ASAP.

Time to break out the small guns, been looking for an excuse to break open some of the polybags I have.
it's already hard to find which set to use.
Everyone always says there is too much grey in star wars sets so here the main first order vehicles brightened up a bit (I think they're quite Christmas-y).They are (if you can't tell );
Mini Kylo Ren Command Shuttle
Mini Special Forces Tie Fighter
Mini First Order Troop Transporter
Here is my attempt. Started out as #30276. The 3 parts in the front were all thats left over.
I call it "Egg painting with Escher".
but i will start of my list by showing you all what i did just 2 1/2 months ago with set #60097
"Alternate Build for set 60097"

this was the 1st ever MOC i did, that i remade in LDD so others could build it.
i will look at my set's and see what one to build something new with :)
"The Mini fortrex go kart."
all parts used + the 2 spare parts that come with set.
i can easily see this in Super Mario kart.
So, Anakin has crashed in the wilderness and is forced to use the parts of his wrecked podracer to build a shelter. Food won't be a problem because there's a palm tree with coconuts, but he's in the process of salvaging more podracer parts to build a raft (you can't see the river in this pic :P), and is hedging his bets with that aerial to try and contact someone to rescue him.
but here is the next MOC of a set i done.
this may be the last one as i dont feel like pulling others apart.
the following image show the part's not used that come in this set.
here are close up of the model.
All built from 30274, AT-DP. Left to right, 2 cruisers, freighter, and 'super/planet' destroyer, while in the background is a communications station.
In the rest of the polybag are the instructions and spares: a black friction connector (though why two I don't know), dark grey cheese slope and a black 1 x 1 round plate.
Sorry about not the best background but all I got. Nevertheless here are the two images!
Please keep to just two images per entry as per the instructions in the first post guys, my iPad can no longer cope with loading this page so I can only check it from the laptop!
I figured this theme would work well for letting a lot of people join in, wasn't expecting quite such a flurry though ;-) Already brewing some more ideas for next month.
does having the wheel caps just sitting there counts as using all the parts?
the podracer build in particular raises the question, it's a bit easy to pretend you used all the parts by just saying there is a wreck.
Odysseus got a bit over-enthusiastic and tried to emerge from the belly of the horse too early, but apparently no-one in Troy noticed, because they took the horse into the city...
71 (mostly tiny) pieces left over.
Now I want to build a full-scale, fancier version with defenders on the city walls, and room for a group of warriors inside the horse...
That hollow dark grey bit in the middle/back of the model tips up to pour boiling oil (well, bits of Sith drones) onto invaders.
I used the rest of the pieces to make a throne room and a siege engine:
is the new color for this part and it made it in to 16 set's so far.
there are also other colors for this part.
