January Contest - ICE
Join to comment
 Group admin 
By request, the subject January contest is any ice-type (or half ice-type) pokemon you'd like. As with October's contest, you can enter as many different ice pokemon as you'd like.

Special requirement: Integrate a minifig tool, utensil, or weapon into your entry for extra points. To qualify, the piece must be an object meant to be held by a minifigure. No backpacks. Feel free to ask me about specific pieces.

Also, who's judging? I may not have time to build, so I might do it.

Hey, admins: did you find a good ice picture yet? Not that good ol' tentacruel isn't cool, but he's been there since November.

I can't believe you can post that and my comment about the 'cra ppy' ice pokemon from Black and White in the group pic was apparently censored.

BTW, I'm not saying I'm offended by your comment, just that it's odd that it was allowed when my much tamer one was not. Weird.

Wait, that's actually a Pokemon? How unfortunate.

The worst part is that's not even the worst 5th gen ice type.

Anyways getting back on topic, I will not be judging as I have already built 2 entries (don't expect them to be posted anytime soon, I havn't even taken pics yet), but I have a couple questions.
#1 - are binoculars considered a minifig tool?
And #2 - is Frost Rotom considered an ice type? (it was electric/ghost in the 4th gen but is electric/ice in the 5th).

Binoculars count, and so does frost Rotum, I suppose.

I haven't even started anything. January's a busy month. :p for February, let's do electric type.

Hold the phone, I made one. Sorta. I'm sure it's not going to get first, but it will give the judges something to do. ;)

Well, my entries are uploaded, just have to wait a bit to enter glalie into the group (darn wait time), I also have a rotom-f built but i'm not sure if I should enter it or not (only 2 pics, and it's not that good). And where are the other entries? We need more than 4.
Lastly, about february, I feel we should go back to a single pokemon, this is the "Pokemon of the month club" not "Type of the month club" after all.

Okee dokee folkies! My class today is cancelled due to a blizzard, so I'll be judging and posting the pokemon list sometime today. Is anybody else judging with me? I'm fine with being the only judge as long as everybody trusts me and thinks I do it fairly.

I'd judge, but I entered already. :p I'm fine with one judge.

Ok, I'm done. Sorry about that wait. I had headaches for most of this, so if it seems harsh, that's probably why. However, I believe I was equally harsh, so it shouldn't affect the outcome. ;) The bonuses really changed things in this round and decided the winner.


Zen's Regice
SUBJECT: 3/5 - Regice has straight angles and isn't very complicated.
RESEMBLANCE: 7/10 - Definitely recognizable. Legs are great. Fingers are great. The color is obviously off, and it wouldn't be a big deal, but the color also isn't consistent. Seems to me that getting the yellow dots right would have been fairly simple.
FLOW: 7/10 - The studs on the front are not very nice to look at, especially considering it represents smooth ice. The front has lots of tiny gaps. The legs flow nicely, as do the arms. the back has those same little gaps as the front. Overall the shape is good.
CREATIVITY: 2/5 - The fingers and overall construction stuck out to me as unconventional.
PRESENTATION: 5/5 - Good pictures of all necessary angles.
BONUS: 5 points for using a minifig tool.

TOTAL: 29

Cody's Cloyster
SUBJECT: 3/5 - The shell is not exactly easy, but Cloyster doesn't have any limbs or anything either. Not too complicated.
RESEMBLANCE: 6/10 - Sadly, I did not know what it was when I first looked at it. Once I knew, though, I was really impressed. If it had a face, I absolutely would have known right away. Looking at a picture of Cloyster, though, I'm thinking you should've included the big spikes. Your construction is really cool, but loses some details. Also, the pieces above the spike and below the head are right where there is a gap on Cloyster. I'm not sure why you put those there. Color is also inconsistent, although perhaps understandably.
FLOW: 8/10 - The shell flows nicely and has a very good shapes. The hinges on the back and the bits above the spike and below the head work against the flow.
CREATIVITY: 4/5 - I was very impressed by the pieces you used in the shell.
PRESENTATION 4/5 - I wanted to see what it looked like from a 3/4 frontal view.
BONUS: 5 points for using a minifig tool.
3 points for the chilly vig.
TOTAL: 33

Dark Ray's Glalie
SUBJECT: 1/5 - Glalie's a bit too basic to be really impressive, at least at this scale.
RESEMBLANCE: 6/10 - I could tell what it was. The tiles on the bottom that are supposed to be the black gaps look like feet and the mouth doesn't look like a mouth. It looks like a nose to me. I'd have used a square 1x1 instead. Not bad, but half of Glalie is the face so that really needs to be done very well.
FLOW: 9/10 - You did a really good job making it spherical. The construction is quite nice.
CREATIVITY: 2/5 - Pretty clever construction and use of the screwdriver.
PRESENTATION 5/5
BONUS: 5 points for using a minifig tool.
TOTAL: 28

Dark Ray's Kyurem
SUBJECT: 55 - Kyurem has lots of detail and has a lot of potential.
RESEMBLANCE: 7/10 - Most details are accounted for, although none are spot-on perfect. I recognized it and I had only seen Kyurem once before so that's good. Good colors.
FLOW: 7/10 - A little on the junky side. It still looks more like a creature than a bunch of pieces, but it would be better with fewer studs and some more substantial connections.
CREATIVITY: 2/5 - The sides being studs-forward was all that stuck out to me.
PRESENTATION: 4/5 - I would have liked a shot of the back.
BONUS: 5 points for using a minifig tool.
TOTAL: 30

Filip Swinub
SUBJECT: 0/5 - Probably the only ice pokemon with less wowing potential than Glalie. A lump with a snout.
RESEMBLANCE: 9/10 - Immediately recognizable. A bit on the square side, but all details are there and done well. Color is great.
FLOW: 4/10 - Squared and studdy. Almost a cube.
CREATIVITY: 1/5 - The plates as fur along the bottom are neat, as is the sideways snout to a lesser degree.
PRESENTATION: 5/5 - Everything I need.
NO BONUS
TOTAL: 19

Filip's Sneasel
SUBJECT: 4/5 - Sneasel has many defining details and limbs.
RESEMBLANCE: 10/10 - Immediately recognizable. All details are accounted for and beautifly colored. The proportions are also really close to perfect on this one. Love the eyes
FLOW: 7/10 - Squared and studdy, although with more shape than Swinub. The face isn't completely flat.
CREATIVITY: 1/5 - Eyes
PRESENTATION: 5/5 - Perfect
TOTAL: 27

Congrats, Cody. Your vignette clinched this one for you.

Filip, I know you're trying to keep your styles consistent for your pokemon project, but including a minifig tool and adding a slope here and there would've won this for you for sure!

Good job everybody!
