Tada it's October!
And time for another Monthly Building contest. My fourth one so had to think a bit myself. It's getting a bit darker and colder out here (and warmer for you lucky people on the other side of the earth) but I'm guessing Halloween has spread a bit everywhere. So I want to see Monsters. They have to look organic (not like a mech) atlhough I will allow grey ball joints seeing as Lego only makes them in that colour. They can be cooky, wacky, scary, strange, whatever you like. You can make a Lego representation of an existing monster or make your own creation.
Size does not matter for this competition.
- your model must be built for the contest, not an existing MOC
- organic monsters only
- two photographs per entry only - it helps the thread load better/at all! However feel free to upload any extra images to Flickr etc. that aren't for your entry.
- you can enter as many different models as you like so long as you make a separate post for each
- contest runs till October 31st. I'll announce the winner by November 4th.
That is a surprise, I'll try to find you something cool.
Any questions? Anything dubious? PM or leave a message below.
I look very much forward to see what you all come up with.

The first monster I have to tell you about is one that has found a niche in the towns. One evening, walking home after making quite merry, I heard a clatterous sound from an alley. I peeked into the darkness and saw some strange movement, a creature was raiding the bins, looking for some scraps of food.
As I approached the animal it's ears twitch and it turned to face me. I struggle to describe it, but it's expression was shocked. It considered me for a moment, then grabbed it's bounty from the bin and scurried away.
I tell you this story is true, it's exactly as I remember....although you can never trust a story told by one who'd consumed his own weight in beer that night!
Happy Halloween :) And don't forget, still a month to go for this contest.
Got it one more in the final stages, so hopefully I’ll finish it in time.

Oh god, why is it looking at me?!?
I kind of ran out of time, wasn't quite happy as I was originally going for something else... but decided to take the photos all the same. I now think this is more like a weird baby T-rex than a monster anyway. I mainly used parts from #70904 Clayface Splat Attack, because initially I thought I'd like to try to build exclusively from one set.
Here's a few more views:
started the build early in October and didn’t finish till last night.
The lair and the not organic monsters I am going to exclude, it was nice to see them but they did not fit the brief.
Really liked seeing some parts being used for something else, like the sausages for lips from Cyril (by Mr_Cross ) and the snake-tongue (by @bumblepants). His woodland creature was the most scary in my opnion. I liked the builds from @Mafon, especialy his last mixel-like one.
So congratulations @Shib, I'll be checking out your wanted list and sending you a little something.
Thanks all for playing and go and check out December/January now live here
I realised I put up too many pics of mine, sorry...
Thanks for the kindwords about the spiderweb eyes though, I think that was the bit of mine I liked most.
I have terrible trouble with the editing window too, stuff jumping around, not selecting properly, I thought it was just me :-)
