1). All the necessary pieces will be provided at the table. There will be two sets of reverse engineering pieces in Base when you arrive--one to build the original for the other team, and one for you to make your copy with.
You must build the original for the other team during your preparation period after you arrive at the table and before the match starts. (update 24)
2). Your team may not open the basket until the robot brings it to Base. Only the two robot handlers may build the replica model--but robot handlers may tag in and out (see Update 15). The replica model isn't worth points unless the basket is brought to Base. There's no requirement about when you build the duplicate--if your team has a guess, you can build it at any time.

At the tournament you will find the six pieces, the ball, a loop and the two mini figs for the Apprenticeship mission in base.
Don't bring these things to the tournament -- you just want your robot, its attachments and the Apprenticeship model.
1a - provided
1b - in advance, using supplied pieces from referee, who will put it in basket and place on opponents field.
I don't dare answer question 2 :-)

Need clarification/ confirmation on the Reverse Engineering mission steps:
1. Each team builds 'unique structure' and puts it in other teams' basket.
Ques: (a) The pieces that the team uses to build the 'unique structure' - will those pieces be provided to them at the match, or does the team need to bring those pieces from home (from project kit)?
(b) Can the team build the 'unique structure' in advance of the match and keep it ready; or do they have to build it when the clock starts?
(c) If the basket is successfully retrieved, team has to build the replica of the other teams' 'unique structure'. Will the pieces to build other teams' 'unique structure' be also provided - or are the team expected to bring those (from their project kit)?
2. The mission requires basket be retrieved, brought back to the base, and only then the team members are allowed to open the basket and work on recreating the structure. Correct?
