Steamicle Building Contest: Alpha Poll

The ChocolateFroggy Bloggy, in association with Building Contest Number :2: , is thrilled to present to you today the first poll in the Steamicle Building Contest!

The goal of this contest was to build a Bionicle Steampunk MOC. Take the general themes of Steampunk and apply them to Bionicle building, creating a Bionicle MOC fitting to the Steampunk world.

We had ten entrants, which I would call a pretty good turnout. If you couldn't enter this for various reasons (NaNoWriMo, etc), don't be discouraged! It's never too late to build, anything, ever. I know I'll be trying my hand at this eventually too.

 

Without further ado, let me show you the polls. There are two, and I request that when posting your decision you vote for one entry from each poll. The top two from each poll will move forward, and the top three from that poll will be declared the winners. In the event of a tie, we will cross that bridge when we come to it. Do not edit your post after voting! If you edit your post, for whatever reason, it will be void.

(Note: I've organized these as "random" as I thought possible and creative enough. They aren't in order submitted, at least, so I guess that's what matters, right? Though I have my own opinions on that...)

 

Poll 1:

Entry 1: Function

Entry 2: Cloud Raptor

Entry 3: Mech Onua

Entry 4: Synister - The Ancient Rahkshi

Entry 5: Steamlord

Poll 2:

Entry 1: Tahu mistika: Re-geared

Entry 2: Miner's Street Lamp

Entry 3: Clockwork Strakk

Entry 4: Alphanaught

Entry 5: The Marvelous Work Machine

 

This poll will close no earlier than 12 noon EST on Sunday, November 15th. (Actual time depends on factors such as me waking up, etc.)

(I'll vote after a few posts accumulate.)

Poll 1: Steamlord

 

Poll 2: Tahu Mistika Regeared

 

Really these two are probably the best. While some of the mechanistic monstrosities could easily rival these in sheer ingenuity, they still looked largely like modern-day robots with excess gears and pipes thrown on. Only these two adequately captured the technological anachronism that is steampunk.

 

Also, it's dreadfully hard to say no to that lovely steampunk Nynrah Ghost Blaster.

Poll 1: Entry 2: Cloud Raptor

I must say I love the use of the Skyboard plates on this, they are layered very well. I only wish there were exaust pipes, it would neat if it had a few scattered throughout the model.

 

Poll 2: Entry 2: Miner's Street Lamp

I will be shameless and vote for myself. :D Unfortunetly I couldn't get done with what I was going to enter, so I decided to submit something I already had built.

 

Good luck to the other contestants!
