Do you know how to spell "questions"?

That was amazing timing...


I'll reiterate here for convenience.

Is it ok if I link an imgur gallery instead of full pictures for now?(I'll edit it later obviously) My router is giving me trouble with the uploader, and I can't change it's settings.

You can do everything you want until you post the link in the entry thread. If the problem doesn't go away in time, just post the link in the R1 entry thread anyway, with an additional link to the full size pics.

Are revamps of original characters allowed? In particular a revamp of this?

Nor with a custom torso.
See, that's what people don't get about my "fixation". I don't really have a problem with non-articulated bodies, but since the whole purpose of making a custom body is to have something better than the prefab, there's no reason to just stick a joint in there to have better poseability.
And most of all, you can agree that those jenga-like bodies many people use are just ridiculous.

Yuri, while I realize this is not the wisest of moves seeing as you're a judge, but the point of a custom torso is not always to have something better than the prefabricated ones, sometimes it's just to be different, or to mount things in different ways, or to enable the builder to use less common parts. I agree, articulation is good, but it's not the be all and end all of a custom torso.

Nor it is for me. People got high marks from me with or without a waist joint (the only real 10 I gave this round, I gave to a "rigid" character).
But I still dream of a future in which every character with a custom body will have a waist joint.

Question: when you said we should keep our character intact for the next round, what does that entail? Will we be building upon the skeleton, or will we be building a different version of the character with the same basic look and mask. I just want to know so I know what direction to take in the two days I will have to build this guy.

I think their previous reply summed up to "wait and see". What I assume we'll see is a mix of two types: alterations to our character, and additional MOCs (e.g. a vehicle or Rahi mount) to complement out character.

Hahahahhaa, genius! I could give you a 10 just for that picture... But i won't :P



But seriously now, I'm kinda with Yuri in the sense I feel its really pointless to make anything custom if in the end it looks just like the prefabs, in the sense it has the same proportions and poseabilities (alhotuhg I don't have that obsession with waist articulation)... Its all about balance, in the end, not showing off how many pieces you can stick together...

Not entirely. It would just mean that, due to some time/life constrants, later entrants just won't receive feedback. I'm certainly guilty of that. All entries will be rated as per the criteria we set out for all.

What Yuri meant is that not every single judge needs to do it all the time, sometimes one can be absent for a certain round, we have 7, we can afford that. But yeah, of course, if one judges, he gets to judge all entries, otherwise it would be quite unfair.

This. everything I've heard about my entry this year has been helpful, if it's about bad design choices I made, or the fact that judges don't understand my entry and I need to display it more effectively. People might think I'm selling myself out if I beg for comments, but they're really so much better than just a smiley.

Would that deduct the possible total of my score? If he hasn't scored any other MOCs, then it's fine by me. But if he has scored others, then could you just tack on a five or a six?
