Ciao. Riccardo

Semplice: costruisci una trottola funzionante con il LEGO.
Se vuoi puoi dare un occhio alle edizioni 2009 e 2010.
Le regole ti sono chiare?

Well I wasn't ready to come out of retirment but since I'm the reigning middle weight top champ (I still don't know that happened) I am honor-bound to defend my title. Besides it's the only one I won, ever! On a side note, I don't see a special holiday or theme category. Planning on adding one or are we only going the for the three listed?

Well, this time we're having it in november, there's really nothing interesting enough for a theme, that I know of.

LOL I jus commented on it about this. Sorry but I had to remove it, as per the rules.
Will you still play? I think people would gladly see some Vuurzoon tops here :)

I built a Turbo Spin, but it is the ultimate Turbo Spin, meaning it has some advanced Ninjago Practicalities. Fun Design!

It appears that GT doesn't work at all the other way around, because your Italian hardly makes any sense.

Ah, okay. But it seemed to translate your italian pretty well.

I just finished my middle weight entry. I'll have to wait a few days to post though, due to a computer difficulty. Anyway, it took more time to sort than to build, I hope you're all wondering now!

Yuri, I had a thought for a fourth category. A top game. Let me explain, when I was a youngster many, many, many moon ago I had a top game called "skittles" and no it had nothing to do with the candy. It was a wooden box about 1 meter long and .5 meters wide with a series of small chambers in it. Each chamber had series of openings just big enough for a top to go through. In each chamber was a was a marker like a bowling pin. The object was to try and knock down as many pins as possible. I been thinking of building a lego version of this game for a while now and if you wanted you could have contestants build their own top games too. What do you think?

Too demanding. This is a lighthearted contest, it's meant to be entertaining and relaxing.

I have no idea. When was it that you posted your R2-DTop?
But then again, this isn't an invitational tournament, anyone can join...
