Well done, this was a really tough decision but in the end my vote goes to your build. I really loved the tree and the lights on its branches caught my eye immediately. Everything is very detailed and close to the movie. You captured the colors and atmosphere just right!
This is the toughest decision I've had to make in the three years this contest has existed. You and Kai had amazing builds. I feel the creativeness of Kai's was - well - more creative than your literal approach, but the landscaping of your build was superb, and I really love that tree. I really wish I could vote for the both of you, but in the end one of you took the vote. Congrats J-Rod, you have my vote! Good luck with AJ!
Honestly...I feel like there isn't a lot to this, other than the minifigures. Other than the figs, it's just a few simple tents, some nice landscaping (though a bit too flat and plain) and a pretty good tree. It's impressive in size, but I absolutely loved your opponent's entry. He gets my vote.
Awesome work! Well done with the little tents and I really like that cart with the fireworks, so cool! Awesome landscaping all around and all the food looks great, except that one dish :P Good luck with the judges!
