It was really close between Elebot and Simicarid warrior, but Simicarid won out.

I had a hard time choosing between Simicarid Warrior and my own entry, Kit Martello. As conceited as it might sound, Kit Martello won out.Simicarid Warrior is brilliantly sculpted, with clever part use and great economy of detail (something that's often undervalued in MOCing competitions). And I have a soft spot for crustacean MOCs, having spent a lot of my early years as a BIONICLE fan building shrimp, lobsters, crabs, and what-have-you using my abundant Technic parts.But at the same time, Simicarid Warrior struggles with regard to color layering, the legs feel a bit column-like compared to the sharp curves and angles elsewhere in his build, and the level of detail isn't entirely consistent even within a particular color/layer (for example, the smooth dark stone grey upper arms don't feel especially consistent with the more intricate detail of the lower legs).It doesn't look as though Kit Martello is going to do all that well in this contest, so good luck, Bunda, and looking forward to your next MOC (which hopefully won't have to be as rushed as this one, since there is a lot of potential in this entry it seems you didn't have the time/pieces to fully explore).

Considering my gastronomic affinity for shrimp, and since Bunda's MOC is very unique and even kind of cute, I went with the Shrimpman.~B~

I voted for shrimp. 'Nuff said.

Or maybe not.


Mr.Shrimpy and Elebot were my favorites in this poll, but I chose Simicared Warrior over Elebot! because I just like the overall feel of the MoC, and it looked more appealing in my eye than the other MoCs in the poll.

Simicarid Warrior was IMO the most creative one out of them. Kit Martello was is great example how to use HF parts in a solid MOC but the complexity of the Simicarid Warrior was the reason I choose for him.

I voted for Kit Martello, but I really did enjoy Simicarid Warrior. Not surprised by how it's doing.

Creative is a very good word to describe the collection of MOCs in this poll. I can't say I ever expected somebody to anthropomorhpize a shrimp or mosquito, but I'm very glad I did. They gave something very unique to look at.And the Simicarid Warrior is a very nice shrimp indeed.~|ET|~

Close call between Simicarid Warrior and Elebot, but in the end I went for Simicarid.

I have no idea what Simicarid Warrior is supposed to be. Elebot looked more robot that elephant, and Bloodsucker was good if it didn't have those big swords. I don't see the bull horn factor in Bullee, and Insector was too bulky. I'm sorry but Kit didn't have that rabbit factor for me. Yeah she looks feminine, but the rabbit part. So my vote went for Ice Dargon Draglacier.
