Great! Wow, you guys all did an awesome job, both the builders and all you admins.

My favorites? Hm... I really like the use of the blue and red "tooth" pieces on the Tournament Supply. The trough of water for dunking red-hot weapons to temper them is a very good touch.

My five favorites are the Warwulf (awesome design, great catapult), the viking longship, the Tree on Moon Lake (great concept executed well!), the Mountain Pass, and Joey's Elf, but ever single one of them are absolutely thrilling.

Another really neat thing is the mottled wall on Lay's Tapestry Shop; very well done use of non-typical colors for walls.

Well, congratulations to everyone involved. I must say, I am really pleased with the results! I thought that Greg3's amazing Vignette might get overlooked. Fortunately I was wrong. That was amazing work!

I'm really surprised that I beat Ken Oldman in the Wagons and Carts category (not that I'm complaining). Your Roma Wagon was awsome! Still, I'm sure your just as happy winning the Outlaw Fortress category!

Finally, I must thank the Admins for their hard work! Grading this contest must not have been easy. Oh, and Legofreak... your everywhere :shock: !! I think its pretty safe to assume that your this year's Master Builder!

Awsome stuff.

lol, ya, would think that too... He's first runner-up in 5 categories, won one, and is a runner-up in 4 others. However, since he won another category, he can't win both. :(

I really love that Tournament Supply shop. What an inventive use of those claw/tooth pieces! And the Tapestry Shop is awesome. I love the stone/brick walls. Using those sand colours really looks good in there, contrary to what I would have assumed. That the Gyphon won is no suprise to anyone...That's got to be the best brick beast of its size I've ever seen. :)

Congratulations to all of the winners. The winning entries are all very good, and so are many of the others.

I'm surprised my outlaw hideout made 5th runner up. I rushed on it, and I wasn't pleased with the outcome.

uh yeah, sorry about that. I kinda got carried away. what can I say? I love Lego. :oops:

seriously though, there were so many fantastic MOC's this year. I sure as heck learned a lot from everyone, and had a great time. This year I was much more prepared, and had a better idea of what I wanted to do.. just goes to show you what hanging around a bunch of other master builders does.

Thanks to both the other builders and the admins for the contest. and thanks 'specially to Little Armory fo that awesome crusader. :D

Congratulations to the winners and actually all of the participants, because I think all this year's submissions were great! Also, I'd like to thank the jurors and admins for their hard work and sacrifice.
I'm still deeply shocked, I can hardly believe I've won my category (you've seen the other Misc entries, right?). But the thing that pleased me most was participation and appreciation of members of our small and young Polish AFOL community.
Ciamek, Gras, Lomero - dobra robota! :)

Great job everyone. Love all of the sets. These are the kind of sets that I would like to see be made into official fan created sets and issued in the millions. REALLY! It's extremely hard to pick a favorite but I would have to say mine is a tie between that bada** Wolfpack seige engine and the longship. Man you all set the bar really high. Thanks for the insperation.
