Well it's time to reveal the winners of our To sail the Technic sea contest! First you must read this rant... no peeking at the winners! You back now?  :sceptic:  OK. Thanks everyone for participating in my competition, and thanks also to all that voted and offered suggestions to the entrants. Extra thanks goes out to my voting panel who helped me pick the finalists. It's been a long term dream of mine for EB to have a Technic contest so I'd like to thank EB for this chance. We'll have to have another one next year and we'll have to make it bigger. In a few days I'll start a topic discussing how it went so please save discussion like that for later.

The voting result was really interesting. Place one and two were separated by just a few votes, three was close behind, and in a bit of a clump was four to six. I might post rough details of the tallies later, but you can always add them up and see it roughly for yourself. (There were some PM votes.)

Important remarks:
  • Prizes are posted at our expense unless it's really expensive. (Never happened to my recollection, but...)
  • If you are one of the contest winners you'll get a PM after the contest is over to work out the details
  • Winners will be notified in order, and will be allowed to choose a lower value prize if they wish.
  • We're finalising the Architecture contest at the moment so S@H prizes might be delayed.
So without further ranting, first place (and first dibs on the prizes) goes to Splat with his Water Strider...

There could be some extra bonuses there for the 3rd place winner.  :wink: Congrats to the Winners! To those that didn't win I'll probably bash together a tag so you can have a long term reminder of this... :grin:

Wow, thank you so much   :grin:

I guess that it is acceptance speech time:  A huge thanks to Sinner and the Technic Meisters, and everyone that entered and voted.  I'll admit that I was following the public votes quote closely once I saw that my entry had a real chance, and it looked like the lead changed about 15 times throughout the voting period.  I guess that I was just luck enough to be ahead when the voting closed.

Congrats to everyone that participated, there were some really great MOCs submitted.   :thumbup:

I think this contest did a great job of filling the void between the 1H 2012 and 2H 2012 releases, where things usually quieten down a bit.  It'd be great to see more Technic contests in the future to help bring out the creativity and ingenuity in all of us.

As a final thank you, I have been recreating my Water Strider in MLCad and once I fix up a few last issues I will look at getting it uploaded to Rebrickable.

Thanks again everyone   :sweet:

Edit: I forgot to mention: thanks also to CopMike for providing the prizes for the runners up.   :thumbup:

Thank you everyone. Posted Image
I will follow Splat by saying thank you to Sinner, the Technic Meisters and the voters. I thought that I might have a chance of getting 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th but I didn't expect second.
I would also like to thank all of the builders.
I believe that Splat deserved the win and I love his creation, the compactness is incredible as well as the looks.
Thank you again everybody.Posted Image

Congratulations to all the participants for their marvellous creations - and hats off to the winners. As soon as I saw the water strider, I knew that this was so ingenious it just had to win. The fact that Splat would be willing to make it available to anyone via Rebrickable just goes to show that he is indeed a worthy winner, well done!

Once again - I know I'm not a Techinc guy, but I'd love to see more Technic contests here on Eurobricks. The sheer awesomeness that Tech-minded people are capable of coming up is something absolutely great to look forward to, so here's to more of that!

Also, I love the shark idea. I was going to build one, but I changed my mind.  :classic:
And Congrats to all the rest. I very much agree 3rd should get like a 9394 Jet Plane.  :sweet: I really wanted him to win.  :oh:

I'd like to congratulate winners and to thank Sinner for managing this contest. It was great idea and I'll participate in next contest surely if it is announced. I also wanna thank all people who participated in this contest as contestants, voters or managers.

Congrats to all the winners!   The 1st and 2nd place winners truly were some very unique mocs!   Well done guys!

It was really great to see all the fantastic entries that all the builders submitted.   There are some awesome models!  


Thanks to EB for hosting the contest, and thanks to Sinner for spending all the time required to make this contest happen.   Thanks, also, to all the judges and to all the EB members that voted.   The voter turnout was much more than I had expected.  Thanks!


Hopefully, we'll have another contest next year.   :thumbup:

I did consider giving out more smaller prizes, but we then spend too much on postage, and giving away the Technic flagship was pretty cool.  :sweet: Thus we went for two main prizes... which to be honest blew the budget as it was. (As it turns out I'm balancing the "books" right now... and with two big contests finishing at the same time it's not a pretty sight.... :sing: :sing:  ) However, I'm hoping to arrange at least some prizes from TLG next time.
