4. Another outstanding and challenging creation was Octopunk’s vignette, showing how to further develop an outstanding idea (La Villa Strangiato's entry, in this case).

For prize claiming please FM Cole Blaq for further details.

This was a super awesome contest, the participation was massive. The overall quality of the bikes was incredible, far beyond the last two contests. Either only skilled builders entered the contest or it was that the standard of building in general has developed. Either way, congratulations to all of you and your feedback and participation was a blast to follow. Nearly every day a new creation showed up replacing the prior favorites. We hope you enjoyed the contest as much as we did while going for the little and challenging builds.

Facts and figures:
There were about 122 contributions from X members, (Too lazy to sort that one out) 2 disqualifications.

The colour me fascinated category seemed to be the most popular one with 47 entries, followed by the military category with 37 entries and the vignette category with 36 entries. Vignette seemed to be the most challenging and the CMF the most interesting as colour control and experiment could be applied.

There are several mention-worthy entries, so we’d like to highlight some outstanding creations as they defined the range of entries.

Buster's Rally Speeder was highly valued. For it’s compactness and use of the technic panels it was a favorite among the judges. The Jeepike by Darkbln was a top notch execution of an outstanding idea. Neim343, again, delivers a wicked custom paint job. The Bath Speeder was the entry with the minimalist parts use while spilling over with ridiculousness = +10. A Fireball blazing through the air and the ambitious organic render of a flying bush. Finally the Space Vignette packs 3 classical space themes into one scene, which has warmed the hearts of the space series fans amongst us.

A huge thanks to our generous sponsors who supported with some really nice incentives.

Chromebricks for the chrome bricks.
Perron 4 for the impulse sets.
FBTB for adding Luke's Landspeeder set (8092) to bring along some friends.
BrickArms for the nice sets of weapons for the special prizes.

And also thanks to Eurobricks for getting us on the frontpage.
and last but not least the Judges and organizing collective:

Thank you for hosting such a great contest, and to all the winners! I built a speeder bike after seeing all the great entries, but alas, I was too late. Plus, after seeing the winners, I fear my efforts were weak sauce.

Fun stuff. I guess my speeder-building skills have much to improve on :\
ted @ndes PRO 5 years ago
It was as thrilling to read the results as it was to participate! I was pleasantly surprised to see my "23 Squidoo" bike win the CMF category (I really favored roguebantha's, as well as halfbeaks "fireball" ).

Thanks again to the judges and sponsors for hosting another great LSB contest, and all of the builders who entered and made this year's contest the best yet!

Hot dang! By the skin of my teeth! I am quite honored; I wasn't sure how I would judge something so deliberately derivative (fortunately, I didn't have to).

Big thanks to the contest judges and supporters! And a special thanks to Keith for being such a good sport.

I also liked Alien Speeder Chase and Squidboy's First Hoverbike.

Great work everybody.

My only regret is for little squiddie (even if I didn't much like the bike, the vig was great) - other than that, congrats to everyone, they were really exceptional entries!

TheDarkblane PRO 5 years ago
Wow, where do I start ... first place in the vignette category ... that's awesome considering the standard of the other entries, especially La Villa Strangiato's where the concept and lighting were simply amazing.

I even got a special mention for my military entry, which was nice. My personal favourite in this category was Ted Andes' entry. The non-symmetrical rear half / weapon choices were great.

And now most importantly, thanks to the organizers / judges (you put a lot of effort into this contest and judging must have been a very difficult process) and the sponsors (very generous of you all and great to see multiple sponsors coming together for one contest).

Last, but not least, congratulations to the other winning entries and everyone else who entered. Fantastic contest, I look forward to the next one.

Thanks gents, and I do agree with you on Squidboy's speeder-bike... that's why when I tried it out in other vignettes, I kept thinking to myself, "this little thing really isn't all that great"... but then I thought it might be "awesome" through the eyes of a child getting it as their first bike... and "Voilà!"
