Spooky Star Wars: Far Side Judge Award

Today's contest announcement is the Winner of my personal  FAR SIDE AWARD. This is the model that I liked the best. The builder will receive 4916: Mini-Animals as their prize.

Let me say first that this was a particularly tough choice. There were quite a few models I really enjoyed. But only one took the contest in an unexpected direction for me:

Imperial Candy Corn Destroyer
by: Raxor

What can I say? There's no candy spookier to me than those icky candy corn thingies...and to combine them with the evil of a Star Destroyer? Pure genius. And the micro scale work is impressive, too.

Raxor, be on the lookout for an email from me to arrange shipment of your prize.

I hope the next person likes my creation or I'm never entering a contest again.

Considering the crap quality of your entries Dave, that'd probably save everyone a bit of time.

Hey now... we can't be sure if the Dave commenter is "the" Dave the Rave since it's just a Name/URL box and not a passworded ID, but I do need to chime in here.

Dave: Steve Sanweet from frickin' Lucasfilm took time to comment on your entry. Which, really, didn't involve any building at all that didn't come directly from a LEGO kit. I'm shocked you really got that much response. Regardless, bitching about not winning isn't scoring you any bonus points - it just makes you look like a sore loser.

I happen to enjoy the wide range of skill levels my contests seem to bring in. Look around at the other LEGO sites - you find mostly master-builder entries and naught else. I like to think we're showcasing the people who are on their way to that status - a rare chance to see people's skills evolve and grow.

I'm still hoping Boba Fett Gets a Rock wins something.

I was really mad I couldn't do the figure scale Star Destroyer, but there was no way I could amass that mush orange in time. Its funny to see how far I have made it in a couple months looking at my picture quality and building level.

Well, my friends and family liked my creation, I just entered as a bit of fun on a rainy day. =D
I love that candycorn destroyer, a sweet treat that'll make you freak (or, thats what I'd do if i saw one of those bearing down on me...)
Congrats to all the winners so far =D
Can't wait for the next contest (and miffed I missed the steampunk one)
