Had to go with #9. Excellent construction and extremely creative.

There are four or five in this poll I considered, but it came down to the Macaw and Ludwig. As much as I love Ludwig, it being so novel and well-constructed, I just had to go with the Macaw. It is both striking and accurate. I hope they both make it to the finals.

[font="Palatino;"]I liked the Macaw - the wings are innovative, but just a tad too strange to really work in my mind. Arpy's entry is not only off-the-wall but excellent, and on the front I'm probably most disappointed by the choice of entry picture than anything else. In the end, the micro-scale Russel won out for me. It's really hard to work on that level and get everything so accurate.[/font]

(1. Reminds me of something that will haunt the night. Or day.
(2. Neck just seems too big in my opinion to give me the vote.
(3. Nicely creative and simple.
(4. Not sure if that pic should have been the entry pic. makes the rest of it seem blurred.
(5. Reminds me of Chima. Plus if the white fangs on the head are the eyes, I could not tell if they were.
(6. I want that bird as my pet. It looks ferocious.
(7. Reminds me of the Macaw from Rio, whose name I do not remember.
(8. Cute little bird that I would want it to welcome we when i wake up or come back home.
(9. DINNER! (Sadly there is no smiley face that has a fork and knife in hand.
These reviews are not to offend. If you are, sorry.

[color=#4b0082;][font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]A lot of creativity in this batch, quite a hard choice to make.[/color][/font]
[color=#4b0082;][font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]The Macaw immediately popped out among the rest, being colorful, rather realistic, and quite the ingenious build. The Hero Factory decals and slightly blocky legs are unfortunate, but easy to look past.[/color][/font]
[color=#4b0082;][font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Russel was also very likable, in agreement with what Sumiki noted about difficulty of such a small scale being surpassed so well. Not to mention it was simply cute. [/color][/font]
[color=#4b0082;][font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Arpy's Ludwig was a rather unexpected take on the theme, being rather unique and hilarious as an entry to a contest on its own. Past that, it was also just a great build, and not too far off from looking like the real thing.[/color][/font]
[color=#4b0082;][font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Even the Jhintro Bird had my interest for a bit. Seems like it would be fitting as a largely robotic animal, and almost seems like it would be appropriate as an actual Bionicle set. Those claws in particular impressed me, not to mention its ability to balance on one foot. [/color][/font]
[color=#4b0082;][font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]All aside, I went with Russel. It's simplicity and excellent design were just too hard for me to not give it credit, regardless of the wonderful build of the Macaw.[/color][/font]
[color=#4b0082;][font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Well done, and good luck to all![/color][/font]

[color=#006400;][font="georgia, serif;"]I voted for myself here because I always do and I do like my entry. However I thought that I would be able to pass the first round but it doens't look that way. [/color][/font]
[color=#006400;][font="georgia, serif;"]Oh well I can say that I tried.[/color][/font]

Like others, it was a close call between the Macaw and Cornish Game Hen... Went with the Macaw in the end.
Posted Jun 25 2013 - 12:21 PM
The Cornish hen is a amazing idea. The Macaw is a marvel in design.
In the end, went with the Macaw.
Wait, that didn't really happen
Sorry, let me get rebooted
This is where the plot gets a little convoluted

There were some great entries here. Ludwig was very original, Razorbeak was very impressive, the Macaw was amazingly realistic and clever, and Ozzy was a great example of small yet detailed and smooth, but the Jhintro bird won my vote for just how visually stunning it is. I'm glad my other near votes are still well represented though.

[color=#ff0000;]Ozzy takes my vote. I loved the leg design and the way the Matoro shoulder pad armor was used for wings.[/color]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"][color=rgb(128,0,128);]Ludwig, Razorbeak, Russel, and Macaw were really good out of this lot in their own unique ways.[/color][/font]
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"][color=rgb(128,0,128);]Due to the details and sheer complexity in the design, my vote goes to Macaw.[/color][/font]

Will you marry me, Arpy?
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
them and us

E-T... Phone home.

I really loved the Jhintro Bird entry. The bird-ness was captured and blended with Bionicle amazingly.
