Wow. Very difficult choice. I need more like ten points. In the end it was between Ignacia Village (3) and Treasure Hunt on the River Nile (18) for my top choice, and I went with the latter because I felt a vehicle entry was more original than a location entry.

In entry number order,
2- Pharaoh's Quest Curse of the Mummy - 1 point
3- Ignacia Village 1 point
18- Treasure hunt on the river Nile 2 points
21- Professor Hale's Oasis Hacienda - 1 point
32- The Final Ruins - 1 point
39- The Dojo and the underground - 1 point

21/ Professor Hale's Oasis Hacienda - 1 point
27/ Ninjago Red Castle - 1 point

What a contest. Thanks to the staff for putting it together, and the entries were really something. It was really hard to pick which entries should get my votes, but the main question I asked myself when choosing was, "Would I buy it?". That, I think, is what should decide which entries are the best, because that's the whole point of a D2C set.

Good luck to all!

All the entries are great, but many of tjhem are more like a MOC or Vignettes, and they have not thinked at what TLG would actually make.But this dont mean at i dont like them of course. Thats why im gonna give 7 points to:

3/ Ignacia Village by quy - 4 points
32/ The Final Ruins by Jalkow - 3 points


I really think at these would be an actual Lego sets, even at there are still some minor things wich i would change. Great work whit these.

Blimey ! - Way too many fantastic entries - and I just cant give any entry more than 1 point, It was hard enough selecting a final 7 - Sorry to those I missed out - there was at least another 5 in contention here - What a fantastic contest.

So in no particular order

18 - 1 point
6 - 1 point
32 - 1 point
3 - 1 point
23 - 1 point
5 - 1 point
10 - 1 point

I'd buy several of these! Well done everyone.

There were so many others that really caught my eye, but I voted for these because they were not only impressive but also seemed like appropriate designs for official potential Lego sets.

13/Attack on the Nile - 3 points
19/Spinjitzu Training Temple - 2 points
37/Temple Assault - 1 point
38/Colosseum of Atlantis - 1 point

Overall, I found myself surprised with what my votes fell to. Most of the stuff was stuff I had already observed to be fantastic entries. However, I narrowed my choices down by choosing things that had:
  • Stunning visuals
  • A unique concept
  • A feeling of completeness-- specifically, it should be something that can stand alone and make someone want to shell out the cost of its parts.
  • Adherence to the aesthetic of their respective themes
  • Complex building techniques or ideas

Attack on the Nile was, needless to say, my favorite in most of these respects. Spinjitzu Training Temple fell behind in a lot of respects (its visuals aren't too amazing, and its concept was already explored in the trap-filled Spinjitzu Dojo), but it picked up some of the slack with its amazing playability that lends it a sense of completeness. Colosseum of Atlantis almost got dropped from my voting roster because the sharks pulling the chariot drew away from its sense of uniqueness-- however, the uniqueness of the overall structure and its beautiful adherence to the Atlantis aesthetic won me over. Temple Assault, meanwhile, outdid most of the other temple-style Pharaohs Quest entries with its simple but detailed design (and the fact that it resembles genuine ancient Egyptian architecture didn't hurt its chances either).

Entries that were on my list of favorites but which I ultimately didn't vote for included Atlantis Seafood (a brilliant idea, but a bit out-of-place and lacking in unique building techniques) and Kraken's Treasure (brilliant action features, but the overall set design isn't visually stunning and the "mech mode" of the Kraken feels a bit odd).

Overall, based on how the votes have been falling, it doesn't look like my entry's doing too well. Sometime I'll inquire in the topic asking why people did/didn't like it as much as the other entries. I'm sure the large parts in it might have something to do with that. But in any event, it was a fun entry to make and I'm so glad I went to the effort to participate in this contest! I feel this contest brought out the best in everyone, and needless to say I never expected my best to match up with the best of this site's more experienced builders. May the best entry win!
