EDIT: I have finished judging, when should I post my scores? Also, this was very close, only 1 point seperated first from second and only 3 between first and third, so if anyone else wants to help judge please do so. Permalink
Quoting Dark Ray
I would be happy to judge if cody entered.

Thanks for stepping in, Tentacruel was a lot of fun to build. I'm glad I could enter it. :) Permalink
RESEMBLENCE: 8/10 - It looks like tentacruel, a very square tentacruel, but it was still instantly recognizable.
FLOW: 8/10 - It flows quite nicely, there aren't any gaps or weird connections, the only problems are some of the tentacles that bend at almost 90 degree angles.
CREATIVITY: 1/5 - The front 2 tentacles are nice but in the end it's just stacked bricks with a bit of basic SNOT.
ORIGINALITY: 2/5 - Wasn't really sure what to give here as noone else did anything like it and at the same time it is very basic, decided on a 2 because stacking bricks isn't exactly a new concept.
PRESENTATION: 5/5 - Your photos are great as always.
RESEMBLANCE: 7/10 - I knew it was tentacruel. It seems a bit tall and i've never seen tentacruel with the tentacles spread out like that before.
FLOW: 6/10 - It's not bad but it's not exactly good either, head on it looks great but from the sides there are large gaps.
CREATIVITY: 3/5 - It's reasonably creative but nothing that made me say "Wow! never thought of using that piece in that way".
ORIGINALITY: 2/5 - It's very similar to Cody's and I feel many parts (the trans red pieces and the droid arm tentacles) were very obvious for a minifig scale tentacruel.
PRESENTATION: 5/5 Amazing photos, the only thing I would have liked would be a shot of the back.
BONUS POINTS: You asked not to award points for the vig so I won't, but you would have earned 3/5 (I feel the goldeen should look more scared).
RESEMBLANCE: 7/10 - It looks like a tentacruel, it also looks a bit overweight. Perhaps it ate too many rare candies?
FLOW: 7/10 - It doesn't have many gaps but it looks a bit blocky.
CREATIVITY: 2/5 - Using the octagon piece (not sure of technical name) to attach the tentcles is a shortcut and makes it look rather strange at this scale.
ORIGINALITY: 2/5 - It's very similar to tracy's and I feel many parts (the trans red pieces and the droid arm tentacles) were very obvious for a minifig scale tentacruel (mostly copy pasted from above).
PRESENTATION: 3/5 - Only 2 pictures and in 1 it looks like it has yellow tentacles, but in the end I can see the finished product and that's all that really matters.
Thats how I judged them. I went into this not being a fan of Filip's style and i'm still not (no offense Filip, I just don't like the large blocky designs), but even I must admit that his creations are usually very accurate and detailed, and that is why he got the highest score from me. Permalink
