Both creations employed nifty techniques and were wonderfully made. But I thought Lando's MOC have a little bit more to offer, i.e., stands on its own vs. supported by a base. Tight competition here. My vote goes to your opponent.
While indeed a bit random, it is far from simple. You were quite creative with you parts/connections and it is interesting to look at. However, without any story or description of what it is, it comes off as a bit too random, so my vote goes with your opponent.~H
This caught my right away! I noticed a part used in a different manner and then I wanted to look further to see what other pieces are used differently! And you certainly used alot of pieces in new ways! This alone should put you in favor with the judges! Although I realized this was a monster and scarry... he was also very, very cute! :)
