It should be no surprise that the Colossal Contest Master Builder for 2004 is
But the race was really close. Really, really close. Coming in at second place is Sir Nelson. Pat beat Sir Nelson by just .2 points!! In honor of Sir Nelson's achievement, he will be also be receiving a prize (still to be determined).
Sir Nelson and Pat completely owned this contest. Pat entered a total of fourteen MOCs, winning best Historical Customization with his "Brother Padraig", while eight others were recognized as a honorary mention. Sir Nelson entered ten MOCs, winning best Seige Weapon with his "Warwulf" seige tower, while seven others were recognized as a honorary mention. Between Pat and Sir Nelson, they were named 17 times on the winners page – which is an amazing 20% of all people mentioned.
So an extra congratulations to Pat Morgan and Sir Nelson for such an impressive array of creations this year! We are going to expect big things from you two next year!
I'd also like to bring attention to everyone who qualified for the Master Builder category. Each built at least one entry for seven different categories – an impressive accomplishment. In no particular order, the Master Builder runners up are:
Didde, Ed, Forester, Josh Wedin, Lord Mikal, Norro, Piotr Lomero Rybak, Psu_Ericksen, RubberChickenKnight, Sir Bert, and Yaron Dori.
Congratulations to each of these excellent builders!
Lenny and Ben E.
