I voted for #5.  Would've been nice to get one last Makuta set before G2 ended.

Was torn between 4, 8, and 9, but in the end I went with 4 as it had the most G2 aesthetic vibe to it. Good luck to all the contestants. :)

A lot of good choices here with 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. But I can only vote for one of them, so I'm going to go with #1 for its wide variety of different builds.

Aw man, I didn't make it to the finals.  Takua has failed me, and this makes me sad.  :(

 

...a lot of good entries, though.  1, 4, and 6 fit the "something I wished G2 had" theme best, but 3, 5, and 10 have the best builds, with 7 and 8 being close runners-up in both categories.  So hard to pick.

 

Eh, I'll go with 10.  It's still probably the most inspired design in the contest.  G2 Master Builder Set is definitely something I would've liked to see, but the builds just weren't up to snuff.  Master of Creation is an amazing design executed near-perfectly, but I feel like it doesn't fit the theme enough.  Kulta Kal is a solid concept executed well, but for some reason just doesn't visually appeal to me enough.  Mask Hoarder looks really solid and cohesive, but doesn't stand out enough compared to Mask Maker's Return.  Lehrak is too simple, although I still like how someone else noticed how much Lewa's mask looks like a beak from the right angle.  Nuurakh is just a tad too blocky for my tastes, and Mata Nui's design is just a bit too cluttered.  They're all good, but Mask Maker's Return is both well built and something I could have seen easily fitting into the finale of G2, and the design is inventive to boot- it even reminds me a bit of my plans for the Create a Villain contest for the solid gold Skull Spider mask.  I gave it my vote before, and I'll do it again.

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?   :)

I voted for Number 1.

 

While I don't think it's the most complex, the most well-designed, the most interesting of the MOCs, or even the best in any way, I think it embodies the sort of down-to-Earth, unique creativity of Bionicle's early years. Where all the other MOCs are these massive, intricate monstrosities, Number 1 honestly tries to emulate a simpler time, and I like it.

Are the poll results visible to everyone else too? Aren't they supposed to be hidden until voting is over?

Number 3, please!

 

Seriously, though–it's not often that I see so much class in one Bionicle.

Just wanted to point out that the results in the art and story polls (but not here in the building poll) are visible again.

EDIT: Scratch that, they're now visible here too.

I would have most wanted to see a Mata Nui set in G2, and the #8 entry blew me away. That one got my vote!

"Kulta Kal and the Skull Army" won my vote as soon as I had laid eyes on it.  I always felt that Gen 2 had some fantastic concept artwork (especially the more tribal-evocative designs), and sadly the final sets did not always do it justice.  Somehow, this entry not only recaptured the look and feel of the Skull Army (while showing off builds that are impressive, yet still believable as sets), but could also combine them all to form the Kulta Kal model, just as implied by the original concept artwork.  It might not necessarily be the most original entry, but it accomplished exactly what it set out to do.

 

"Bionicle G2 Master Builder Set" was also another great concept that I would have also loved to see in Gen 2.  Unfortunately, much like the original Gen 1 Master Builder set, some of the models in this entry are hit-or-miss.  If the execution was as strong as the concept, I think it could have gotten my vote instead.

Just cheering here for #1 to win. I won't pretend I would know how to build better or anything. I just feel that the mind-gears were working hard when the idea was born. The others are great too. I like how contests unleash peoples creativity.

I had similar thoughts to Peabody Sam's.  The Skull Army looks like it would fit in well with the existing 2015 skull villains' aesthetic, and I'm impressed by the faithful and effective realization of the Kulta Kal concept art.  For the Master Builder set, I'd like to highlight the Fikou and snake as personal standouts, but I'm not sure that all the rest of the creature builds reached that same high standard.

 

A few other thoughts... 3 looks well built, and I think it did a good job at what its builder was aiming for, but it's kind of in an uncanny valley for me.  Ekimu looks a bit too humanoid for my tastes (and also reminds me of Doctor Strange, incidentally).  But that's just personal preference; props to a solid build.  I also wanted to shout-out 5; I liked the bulk, menace, and mask-hoarding aesthetic of its take on Makuta.
