Though my vote at this point is only gravy on an already well-deserved win, your work here is a brilliant and faithful representation of the iconic elven hall, replete with tasty details and smart techniques. While KW's action-oriented build with a more diametrical composition came close to stealing my vote, the role that this piece played in rounding out the architectural diversity of your participation this year pushed me over the edge. Again, great work, and thanks for making this year's games so fun to watch and to judge.
Congratulations!! All your MOCs in the contest were great. It is how you wrote: you have built dwarfen, human and dark architecture. And this one - the elven building - is another masterpiece (I really like the bows ... awesome). Greetings from Germany.
Well gentlemen, you certainly didn't disappoint! This has been an eye-opening final Round and I thank you both for your effort! But now to determine the winner: in my opinion, both builds are pretty much equal in terms of skill displayed and as recreations of their respective DOS scenes. Therefore to decide whom to vote for I had to look beyond just the bricks. While KW Vauban's build is excellent, you get my vote Li Li for better overall appearance/composition! Congratulations!
Holy raviolli. You and KW put in an amazing amount of effort and skill into these entires. I am so amazed at both of you. I love the stairs you put in this, and how well you crafted the cave-like hall. I also love the topic choice. In the end I decided that your entry has my vote. Thanks so much for participating!
WOW WOW WOW. While it is only fitting that the final round should be tough to judge, this is beyond difficult. KW's build captures the motion of collapsing pillars, dilapidated stone, and swirling darkness. Your build on the other hand re-creates the marvelous CGI of the woodland elves' realm. His build features superb architectural details, building techniques, and a unique composition. You found the perfect balance here between structural complexity and appealing artistry. Congratulations, you get my vote! Good luck with the other judges, and happy St. Patricks day.
Well, what a contest fellas! It was a spectacular pleasure to watch you both climb through your brackets. Sadly, there can only be one winner. If it were up to me, you would both walk away with the crown having both whipped up some brilliant builds. As it is, I must choose between two brilliant creations. KW, you did a great job replicating the rough and destroyed look of Dol Guldur. Li Li, the elven architecture you created is just perfect for the atmosphere. Of the two builds though, I felt that Li-Li's had overall better aesthetics, structural complexity, and showed greater skill in the build. Therefore, he gets my vote. Congratulations to you both for making it here, and good luck with the other judges!
Im gonna say it, you receive my vote! I LOVE this scene in the film and you've made an epic remake of it in LEGO! The throne, for a start, is amazing, the architecture underneath, is fantastic and the stairs are also great! Great job LI LIL! I haven't fb'd you yet? I'll do it right away!
