I think it's great that there were 52 entries, seeing as 52 has numerological significance in DC comics. (is there no irritating know it all emoticon? imagine one. It will make me feel better :tongue: )

Congrats to the winners!

Wow, thanks for all the votes, everyone! And congrats to my fellow winners, especially my friend Kiel and my like-minded competitor Sok117! Looks like your NightHawk triumphed over mine after all. :laugh: Very well deserved, although all the entries were great. Also, thanks to LuxorV and a special thanks to The Penguin for offering these generous prizes!

Go Dynamic Trio! :grin:

Congrats to all the winners. That was a fun contest and the entries were great. That's pretty amazing that the same three people placed in both Category A and B--you guys really know your superheroes and villains!

I'm also glad Speedcat got recognized. I really dug that entry.

This is awesome!  Thank you so much to The Penguin and Luxor for organizing the contest!  I'm really quite thankful as it is very generous of them.  The entries all look great and it was a lot of fun!  :classic:

I guess good-guys always beat bad-guys  :tongue: .  The dynamic trio all had excellent entries, and it was neck and neck for all of voting.  I think if more people voted, the results could change very easily.  Regardless, everyone had great entries.

Lastly, thanks to everyone for all the votes.  And another thank-you to Penguin for extending his generosity to provide two second place prizes to the tie in category A.

A huge congratulations to all of the winners in all 3 categories! It was very pleasing and enjoyable to see so many high quality entries participating in this one of a kind Batman customisation contest in Eurobricks.

Got to give a huge thanks to The Penguin who is our biggest donor ever on EB for being such a gracious and generous member of our community. He is very kind and I have the utmost respect for sharing the love of our hobby with the deserving members.

This could not be achieved, if our MCW Moderator, LuxorV who had planned and coordinated this entire contest experience!

Well done to all of you!  :wub:
