Okay, since your last announcement of "today is the last day" bladibla wasnīt indicating another 24 hours of time, but only like 3 hours, I did my votes now :-D
Hey, hey, hey!  8-° I posted this, and then 25 hours later I closed the entries... Where did you get the three hours from? I even gave people an extra week to get entries in... :'-(

I think you'll like it.  X-D Expect it in about 22 hours.  ;-)

You do realize it was 26, right? Not trying to rub it in, just want to make sure you're not confused about the actual time that passed... :-)

But I am!  X-O  *wacko*

I never really understood this AM and PM stuff.
So 12 PM translates to what hour of the day? Letīs make this militarical. 8 AM is 0800. 8 PM is 2000. So 12 PM must be 2400, isnīt it? 12:11 PM is 2411, and the minute after 12:59 PM is 0000

Who can still follow me? :-D

If 12:11 PM is 2411 and 02:15 PM is 1415, then only 10 hours and 4 minutes passed.

Please help me *sing*  My brain hurts so much X-D

12 pm is 1200. Remember that "PM" means "post meridiem", which is Latin for after- noon.
12 am is 0000. Remember that "AM" means "ante meridiem", which is Latin for before-noon.

There is no 2400. The time goes from 2359->0000->0001. But confusion in this topic is common. Most militaries forbid the use of scheduling at 0000 because it is confusing as to what day it is.  X-D

Thus the times are Feb 20 1211 and Feb 21 1415, which makes about 26 hours difference. Are we cool now?

Eitherway, I will post the results soon.

We have a winner!  *sweet* The final scores are in; with 40% of the vote it's Hinckley with "Reclining Devastator".  X-D He also wins the people's favourite! Congrats!

As for the semi-secret but super-cool surprise.... we have pictures of the real set!

Posted Image

About a day after the poll started Toa_Of_Justice told me that he discovered the instructions here. He was kind enough to keep it quiet for the rest of the week... and I must admit I am curious how he found it. Hopefully he will explain all now.

Posted Image

Now that we know what it looks like, which one do we think is the closest?  :-D I think imperialshadows MOC is...

Thanks for entering everyone! This was a very interesting competition. *sweet*

That's just scary. I thought the skid approach was the weakest way to go, but I couldn't figure out anything else to do with those plates. *wacko*

Thanks for a fun contest! *y*

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Congratulations to Hinckley! *y*

A true winner in both categories. And now that we even have the original instructions for the Robo Chopper, I guess Iīll have to get loads of those parts to build at least two official Robo Choppers, and several of the fine MOCs presented in this contest.

Again, thank you very much to everyone who participated in this contest. It was a fun ride (pun intended)


And I am very curious too, how Toa found the instructions... :)

It was rather simple matter for me to find the instructions. :-) I just went here, entered the set number, clicked on the result, and then I clicked on the download link.

no no. 1200 and 1400 on two different days...26 hours has past. AM and PM aside, a metric day only has 24 hours right? (metric is a joke there ;-) ) This was posted at midnight on the 20th and then two hours into the 21st. That's 26 hours inbetween the posts...Forget AM and PM, the posts were made on different days.

EDIT: Oh, oops! I got so caught up in the AM/PM crap (AM=After Midnight PM=Pre-midnight, BTW) I didn't even notice I had won the contest. :-D

Gee, thanks everybody! :-$

You're welcome. *sweet* I think that they may have been watching us...they wanted to see what we could come up with from a parts list before they released the instructions. :-P Who knows, maybe they even made their instructions based off our MOCs. :-P
