LSB-BFD 2018 Contest Winners:
Finally! The judging has been completed, the results tallied, and the winners of the “Battle for District 18” have finally been identified. But first, while I have your attention…

As stated before, all District 18 entrants will be given a custom printed “LSB-BFD-18” tile from eclipseGRAFX. Through their generosity, we will also give out custom tiles to the 1st-thru-10th place finishers in each speederbike category… and if you placed in multiple categories, you will receive multiple tiles.

”Top-10” finishers and District 18 entrants can send me their mailing address through flickr mail. If you will be attending Brickworld Chicago 2018 and you can wait until then, also let me know. Reminder to anyone under-18 years old; please tell your parents if you provide us with your mailing address.

A hearty “Thank You” to everyone who participated in the 2018 LEGO Speederbikes contest. Whether it was building, critiquing, spectating, sponsoring, or judging, it is this community of builders that makes the LSB contests such a special and anticipated event. We also want to thank Christopher Hoffmann, who stepped in to be our guest judge this year. He always has a great eye for quality builds, NPU techniques, and areas that could be improved. There is not much that gets past him.

I will share my own detailed thoughts in a final contest wrap-up article on The Manifesto. The hosting-judges will also come through flickr and post additional comments for individual entrants. Now without further ado…

Nice work judges. I had about 15-20 for each category that I thought could be possible winners depending on what style or preferences you might have in speeder bike models. And I know it took so long because Ted is writing up some clever commentary for The Manifesto. It better be good Ted. :)
W. Navarre 9 months ago
Yay!! Very happy to have done so well, the District category was brilliant, the only way I could win a Speeder Bike contest like this incredible one without being a very good hand at speeders! Congrats to all the winners, especially in the bike categories, it's crazy hard to be even close to the win there with so much awesomeness and variety. Kudos to the judges as well, one of the hardest parts maybe!

Congratulations to the winners (oOger, PB Deltassius, Djokson and W. Navarre) for some truly kick-ass bikes and a diorama that sets the standard going forward. 2018 was another entertaining year for the contest, shout out to Ted, _zenn and Cole for hosting. I really enjoyed the Top-10 ranking, cheers to everyone who made the list, there was some stiff competition this year.

Ted's post game wrap-up has been posted to the Manifesto. It's a good read for anyone who was inspired by the contest.

Looking forward to next year already!

Another great contest! Loads of fun to participate and watch some really creative, cool, and funny builds over the months. Great feedback participation from those who put their critical oars in and of course excellent organization from the show-runners - thank you to them! Congrats to all the winners, of course I am delighted to have placed with my AlleyCat messenger bike!

Also want to say, that among so many wonderful builds, my own number 1 was PB Deltassius’ fishing bike. It really makes me smile when I look at it!
Deltassius 9 months ago
Hey, thanks for that, Halfbeak, I'm glad to make you smile. You're own build was super good! It must have been very close.

Thanx for the contest and thanx to all participants for the new building ideas, you have spread!
Maybe next year I am more directly inspired by the categories. But since my speeders already waited 1 full year to be shown, I could not do that to them again. So that was fine by me :D
Gratz to the winners btw!!

Congrats to the well-deserved winners!
They must have been incredibly hard to choose given the breadth of fantastic entries, though. Man, what a treat to be able to be a part of something this cool!

Congratulations to all the winners and participants, some brilliant builds and excellent ideas. Big thanks to the admins and judges for the monster task of organising and deliberating, and of course for placing my diorama in the top 10! I'm thrilled at that and very pleased to be involved overall - its been over two years since I built something and posted it so I'm happy to say I haven't totally lost it. This has been a great kick-start to my building again after a long period where my depression has really kept me from being involved so I am hopeful that I am back into it with both feet.
Time to go around and leave some feedback and do an honourable mention post, much love to all!

Congratulations to the winners, and a big thinks to the judges for running another amazing contest.

ted @ndes: I will be at Brickworld, so tile pickup there will be fine.

On that note, who else is going to be there? If there's a significant number, we should set up a coordinated display area or even a collaborative display for speeder bikes.

Got mine yesterday. Thanks !
ted @ndes 9 months ago
. Thanks for the confirmations on receiving the tiles, and thanks to those who sent me FM to confirm as well. I am glad to know that they are surviving a trip through the postal system (sometimes rigid objects can jam the sorting machines, especially if placed horizontally in an envelope). Fun facts - 85% of the address I received were located outside of the USA... and I didn't realize that the USPS stamp for sending international postage was round.
