Open Request: Something New

I’d like something that is at least half-blue, has some elements of red, and has a value of at least 50. Be creative! Standard Reward is 80, bonus reward is 50.

Okay after designing the thing i see its way too costly for a request with a max reward of 130. derp gonna have to restart and think smaller :X

Let’s see what I got here…

Blues-
2- 3x2 (6 ea = 12 | 12 total)
6- 1x1 (1 ea = 6 | 18 total)
8- 2x1 (2 ea = 16 | 34 total)
3- 3x1 (3 ea = 9 | 43 total)
1- 5x1 (5 ea = 5 | 48 total)
1- 2x3 flat (6 ea = 6 | 52 total)
1- 2x1 flat (2 ea = 2 | 54 total)
2- 1x1 flat (1 ea = 2 | 56 total)

Reds-
4- 1x1 (1 ea = 4 | 60 total)

Whites-
2- 1x1 (1 ea = 2 | 62 total)
2- 3x1 flat (3 ea = 6 | 68 total)
4- 1x1 flat (1 ea = 4 | 72 total)

Blacks-
3- 1x1 flat (1 ea = 3 | 75 total)

Yellows-
2- 1x1 (1 ea = 2 | 77 total)
2- 1x1 flat (1 ea = 2 | 79 total)
2- 3x1 flat (3 ea = 6 | 85 total)

56/75 (~75%) is blue. Has some elements of red. Totally legal.

I did some math wrong. 58 value in blue, for total of 87. 58/87 = 66.666… or 2/3rds is blue.

I stack forty-nine 1x1 blue bricks on top of each other, and top it off with one 1x1 red brick.  It is a space elevator.

Hey Subrincinator, building a minimal specification building was *my* idea

Thane totally deserves to win this one.

I build a coffee mug

2 2 x 2 Standard Red Blocks
8 3 x 1 Standard Blue Blocks
1 4 x 4 Standard Blue Block
2 2 x 2 Standard Blue Blocks
1 2 x 1 Standard Blue Block

Put together like so

@Clucky: it was a *good* idea, too.

I mean, if you noticed I did basically the same thing again this round =P (though in part because I knew I couldn’t beat Thane’s sonic)

I made a beautiful blue reindeer,

then realized I couldn’t sell my Christmas tree in order to pay for it… hence the space elevator.

I really can’t justify awarding victory to anything other than Sonic the Hedgehog. Thane Q +50
