Its Finally Here.....
The .vignette curators are hereby sponsoring the Second Annual Joe Vig contest! Build a Joe Vig vignette
based on the Rules below and enter! Use your creativity and have some fun with Joe Vig!
Who is Joe Vig, you ask? Well, he is the unluckiest and most oblivious minifig ever created.
Joe has no clue of whats going on in the area just around him! He is also electro-magnet for bad luck, and never quite seems to know whats about to happen... unfortunately, its usually just about to happen to him!
Build a vignette featuring our Joe Vig character, and show us how oblivious he really is!
Note: While this is a vignette MOC, it is NOT a Joe Vig vignette:
Joe Vig is oblivious, not dead.
The contest will begin on Thursday, June 1st, 2006 and end on Friday, July 14th, 2006 (LUGNET Server Time).
Contest winners will be announced ASAP thereafter.
If there are 20 or more total entries, we will be giving out prizes! Prizes will be awarded to the top (3) winning entries.
