    Due to the addition of the 10th contestant, the poll results were reset, so you will have to re-vote

    Carry on.

    Congratulations to all who finished their lightsabers on time to enter the contest! It's a good looking group, I wish I could have joined y'all in the fun.

    I kinda got a bit ambitious and haven't gotten to making the insides of mine yet. Designing and blueprinting is coming along quite nicely though.

    And I'm still working on it, so please have another contest next year! Hopefully it'll be done by then!

    Good Luck to everyone!

    You guys are really making this hard for me to vote. Good luck to y'all, and all of you have done a really nice job on your sabers. And another contest next year would be fun, then I could join you guys.

    So how does the contest work now without the different categories as far as prizes?

  6. #6

    Default

    Based on things that have been decided in the past...

    So, now that I have had time to go through everything, and more importantly download everything, due to the entries I got, there will be some small modifications to how this will work. Since there was not enough participation in a certain category, the categories have been "merged". The prize structure was also "modified". Instead of just First and Second place, there will now be a First Place Prize (still $200 gift certificate), a Second Place Prize ($100 gift certificate), and a Third Place Prize ($50. gift certificate). Given the situation, Tim and I think that this is "fair".

    Well, the pure MHS have a hard row to hoe against the customs. The customs are freaking incredible! Great job guys! Wayne Gretzky said, "You can't score if you don't shoot." I've been shooting the whole game, and there is one heckofa goalie in net. I should have followed my own lottery advice! Its fun to see all the cool sabers, and I definitely recognize the styling in one of them, its always unique, but this time even better than last. Great job all! Everyone is a winner when you have an expensive flashlight illuminating a tube, and sounding as you strike down your true enemy!

    Not necessarily. A couple of the MHS builds are pretty good.
