It's between 3, 7 and 8 for me. I eventually went with 3, because it has a sweet gear function, and because 8 doesn't need any help. (Seriously, that thing is awesome.)

Honourable mention for 9, which is adorable.

EDIT: added in a missing space.

Honestly, it wasn't even a contest. 3 was the only one here that really looked G1 to me, and it's especially impressive that they used mostly parts available before 2005. Plus I like Dark Hunters. :D

I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)

Numbers two and eight are definitely the top choices here. Of those that pair, I went with 8.

2, 7, and 8 catch my eye here, but I'm gonna go with Makuta Hunter because it just has some good shaping, and I love the color scheme.

Nothing really strikes me in this poll, but I went for #7, which has a couple nifty design aspects and looks passable for a G1 titan.

Voted four because it felt very much like an actual set. The others are really cool, but often over-the-top MOCs don't match the aesthetic for me.

Went with #3. Great Dark Hunter build and I can imagine it being a set. Cute owl, you were so close

8 and 3 really stood out for me in another great group. I ended up going with with 3 because it would look right at home in my well-read Dark Hunters guide. Number 8 though, wow. Very cool!

Tough choice between 2, 3, and 8 (weird, entry 8 ended up being a standout for me in all three polls).

Entry 8 in this poll succeeds even with an extremely monochrome design in part due to its eclectic use of textures. It's reminiscent of many prototype Bionicle sets from over the years, but unlike those which are mostly cut and glued and then painted with a silvery finish, this one is purist, achieving the same use through the use of greebly details both small and large. Its rotund, somewhat cartoonish proportions set it apart from any official sets and even from most MOCs. It feels sorta like a video game enemy.

2, on the other hand, really exemplifies the old-school "riotflea" MOC craze, plus has a dynamic color scheme and textures that don't call quite so much attention to themselves. Its proportions are spindly, aggressive, and alien like I'd expect a "riotflea" to be. The biggest drawback of this one is that its build feels almost more "timeless" than "old-school" — flares and curves like this model has are about as pervasive in System and CCBS MOCs as they were in G1 Bionicle MOCs, and so it's really only the "riotflea" concept that dates it.

3 stands out in its own way — it is not as ambitious in its building techniques as 2 or 8, but it has a distinctive G1 feel with its clumsy, machine-like build, and the yellow Jack Stone elements used as accents go a long way to balance out the grey, black, and silver. As the builder intended, it feels like it could fit in the Dark Hunters guide, and yet it feels like it could fit in among that guide's best entries, or even among some of the official G1 Dark Hunter sets and combi models.

After much debate I settled on Entry 8, which is both the most impressive for me visually and elicits the most nostalgia. Rather than just an old set or an old MOC, it feels like an unfinished PROTOTYPE of an old set! That's, like, double the old! And yet in spite of that inherent roughness that would feel horrendously out-of-place on a finished set, its neutral color palette and unconventional materials are reminiscent of a mixed media art piece.

So I guess I ended up voting a straight 8-8-8 ticket. Ah, well.
