well since sander is back, i think its time to start the judge topic! here is my scores:
sander: 24/30 (i think you used geoffs design too much, i have seen many at-rts with his design, but i like how you used the BA u clip on the gun! the legs and toes are a bit inaccurate though!)
evan: 27/30 (it was impressive, but it has a few gaps!) Permalink
Sander: 26/30 If the design was your own this would get a higher score. I think with some tweeking you could make it your own. Evan: 27/30. I like the look and idea of the walker BUT it's really just a mod of an official set. I would've liked to have seen something built from scratch. Both entries look great, though! Permalink
I must say the same as Moodswim, and I urge all of you who have already voted to consider changing your votes.
I must say, I am dissapointed with both these entries. Yes, they are cool. Yes, they took time and effort. BUT, they both have a common flaw. They were not made your own.
Sander, your entry was based too heavily on another's design. When I come up with AT-RT's I try to use some techniques others use, but only to enhace the look. Even then I build my walkers from scrach, just using a photo for reference.
Evan, your entry is cool, it has unique parts like the lift. But it is pretty much a modded set. When I look at your entry I automatically know that it is based on the set. I want to be able to tell the difference between your entry and the set. As of now, I can't.
So, I really don't know if I can even judge this time. Both of you are in the same situation. I will let the judges rejudge if they wish. If I had my way with it, I'd have you make new entries, but that's just me. Permalink
Well since I saw Sander's entry I knew he wasn't going to win with someone else's frame or with such an overdone vehicle, and I'm not a big fan of modifying sets, especially for a final round in a contest, so I wouldn't feel right giving my vote to Evan.
But if I must give scores, here you go:
Evan: 20/30 Permalink
Quoting Evan D
Well, nobody's said anything in awhile, but I'm leaving on vacation for a week starting tomorrow, so I'm wondering if we're continuing the tourney or picking a winner. PLEASE RESPOND SOON!
