The winner of the 2017 MELO is Classical Bricks!


Congratulations, you really deserve it! Thanks a lot for putting so much of your time, skills and energy into your MOCs and the long journey of this contest.

Also a huge round of applause for our 2nd placed contestant John Snyder who was a worthy and equal opponent for this year's champion! Never before in the history of MELO were the Finals so intense and close!! Thanks for this awesome athmosphere!

And last but definitely not least, a HUGE(!!) thank you to all the passionate and talented builders who participated in the 2017 Middle Earth Lego Olympics!
This year we had lots of EPIC matches and many of them were really close - Sometimes it was only one little detail or a clever building technique found in a pair of two otherwise very equal MOCs which helped me to decide. It was not easy at all for all of us judges to make decisions, especially when we saw so many excellent entries. Once more this contest's result is a series of legendary MOCs! I hope that in many years people will still stumble across MOCpages and find and enjoy your perfect entries!

Thanks a lot Mark, Jonathan, City Creator and Evan Botkin for all your help and judging! Also another HUGE thanks to last year's MELO finalists Elio Salsano and Brick Ninja for being part of the judging team, it's been an honor, your experience was a great enrichement for this contest and the decisions that had to be made!
Also I'd like to thank the admins and mods of The Fellowship of the Brick, MELO founder Ian Spacek and the following people (for things like helping to promote the contest outside MOCpages or creating banners): C Stucky Roanoke Handybuck, Hildigrim Took, Carter Witzenburg, Rove Random, Choco Taco. And Thank you to all the people who commented on our contestants entries and watched the contest!

This year we didn't get as many First-Round-Entries as expected, but nonetheless MELO was so much fun that hopefully there will be another one next year! (Maybe to a smaller extent, but I see nothing that speaks against it)

Woohoo! I still can't believe that I won MELO this year! I'm so glad that all my effort over the past couple of months paid off, and am looking forward to receiving that awesome first place prize! I have learned a lot through this contest and feel that I have improved a ton as a builder because of it. I would like to thank each of my opponents for making this contest so fun and challenging, especially my final opponent John Snyder. Congratulations on second place, John, you built some truly magnificent entries for this and I was always looking forward to seeing what you would build next (and dreading having to face you in the final round :P)! Time to go back to sorting my bricks and starting on some new MOCs. Thanks again to all my opponents and the judges for the great contest!

Congratulations, Classical, on winning this year's MELO! I was very impressed with the builds you turned out over the course of the contest!

John, congrats on second place! You did a heckuva job, as always, and turned out some truly amazing builds.

And, thanks to the judges for hosting again this year and to Ian for allowing it to continue. I really enjoyed competing this year and I look forward to next year's MELO.

Congrats to Classical for the win! And congrats to John for a very close second place. I must admit i am glad i was not a judge in this, as i would have had an extremely hard time choosing which build to vote for in the final round :-)

Congrats to both of you! You guys did great! Btw, your welcome Classical, if I hadn't let you win round two, you never could have won MELO. I'm so nice. :P
