Terror Bird is the clear choice. Does an excellent job of capturing its source material, and the stubby flightless wings are totes adorbs. 8 is interesting in a 2001-ish sort of way...would not be out of place in the MNOLG.

Why do they have to pit Buzzy against Terror Bird against Cyanistes?


I voted #4. The simplicity is incredible and Buzzy is adorable.

[font="Palatino;"]Man oh man oh man. This is a tough one. The penguin is unique in the contest as far as I'm aware of, the hummingbird is really cute (although color wise it's not particularly accurate), the Terror Bird is just splendid, and the Hummaera is strikingly detailed. In the end, though ... Terror Bird, with Hummaera a very close second. Would love to see both in the finals, though.[/font]

I always vote for myself in the prelims, usually the only vote I get... but I like the Terror Bird and I hope it does well!

Voted for myself 'cause that's just what I do, but the Terror Bird is the clear winner here. Probably my favorite in the contest, actually.

All were so good, but I had to go with Kahu. But after looking at Terror Bird, I should have gone for it, since it truly shows the prehistoric bird's identity.

I voted for myself (#5), because... I'm not a good person, I guess. I love the Kahu, though. I wish it had some color but it's a great revamp in the old style.

I voted for my entry, the Hummaera, but the Terror Bird is a close second, being awesome and very well-designed.~B~

Such brilliant entries. I was torn between Terror Bird, Kahu, and the Midrange Bird. I went with the latter in the end...there's just something about those colours.=)

Am I the only person who didn't vote for their own entry?  Terror bird is really brilliant, but I'm just feeling the MNOG nostalgia of that Kahu.  Nostalgia beats even my own desire to win.

This is tough.  Terror Bird is great, but in the end I think that Kahu looks more polished.  I usually find exposed, square technic to be a fault in MOCs, but Kahu, even setting nostalgia aside, makes it work.  It just looks the best out of this poll's offerings.

Almost voted for the Terror Bird, but I figured it was well represented, so I gave my vote to the Modra Bird because of it's great use of parts and flow, especially on the feet and tail. Should have self-voted though. I don't have any votes!

C. Caeruleus is a remarkably retro design that really speaks to me in a historical sense. However, I feel it lacks some degree of character. It might have helped if its eyes were more visible. Its wings are somewhat blocky and it is hard to judge whether they would look any good when outstretched.Buzzy is the most successful micro-MOC in this contest, even with so many colors in his color scheme. I also don't like its reliance on rubber bands, which are somewhat distracting when this exposed on a MOC this small.The terror bird is incredibly amusing, with a design that is equal parts fearsome and comical. Streamlined, too, which is impressive on a model this pudgy. But it is not as recognizably bird-like as the MOCs that imitate more typical modern birds.Hummaera has a very bright and ornate color scheme, cute proportions, good articulation, and a good balance of smooth and detailed textures.The Kahu has a very unified mechanical aesthetic, but it loses some of its birdlike quality in the process. It is also not very exciting with regard to colors. The gears would be more impressive if they had a more significant function, rather than being merely for looks. As it is, the model is more functional than the original Kahu, but visually not nearly as impressive.In the end I voted Hummaera. :)

It was between the Hummingbird and the Terror Bird, but I couldn't vote for Bunda because of the legs. Non-integrated pistons are just something I "can't stand for!"


ba-dum *tish*


In any case, I hope they are the two that make it!

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"][color=rgb(128,0,128);]Hmm, the entries that stood out for me were Terror, Cyanistes, Hummaera, Kahu, Modra, and Buzzy.[/color][/font]


[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"][color=rgb(128,0,128);]Down to the wire with details, my absoulute favorites were Terror, Cyanistes and Hummaera.[/color][/font]


[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"][color=rgb(128,0,128);]With the flow of nice details and a very nice color scheme, Hummaera gets my vote.[/color][/font]

Terror Bird was good enough to make me log back in to vote for it.

  • 0

despite that he saw blatant similarity
he struggled to find distinctive moiety
all he found was vulgar superficiality
but he focused it to sharpness
and shared it with the others
it signified his anger and his misery
