A fair question. I would expect mission models like these to be glued, for simplicity (it would be far too easy for parts to disappear accidentally if not); as ever, benefit of the doubt should go to the team. If a hat falls off just because the robot vibrates a little, I wouldn’t expect that to be taken as deliberate mission model damage. If a hat falls off because the robot is trying to cram the little dude through the window of the house, that *might* be viewed differently (but you wouldn’t be doing that, of course).
What I wouldn’t expect is for you to successfully argue that you should get points for the ice buoy if, say, the base falls off but the robot delivers the top in such a manner that, had the base still been attached, it would have been upright. That goes too far in expecting the refs to make woulda, coulda, shoulda assumptions.
While delivering researchers (lego mini-figs) to their destination, sometimes their parts fall off (skis/caps, etc.)
If that happens during tournament are any points taken off?
Also similarly the snow-mobile looses it's parts, so if it's skis fall off but rest of the snoe-mobile is delviered is
it considered scored?
Luckily the polar bear's head stays on it's shoulders :-)
any insight will be appreciated.
