The effort you put into this seems pretty extensive. I'm not sure if I'm getting enough classic "mecha" here with all the weaponized animals, but there is more than enough "doom" to go around, so I'm a happy man. Great work!.
So, I don't mean to embarrass either of us, but I'm still trying to learn who is who in this community. When people keep referring to you as the man to beat, they are not actually joking? That begs the question: why don't they DQ you, say by making you a judge?
Mr. Kaleta, this is an amazing build. I absolutely adore the midi-scale (?) buildings. Also, I would like to take this time to thank you for adding me to the list of your favorite builders. I'm not sure why you did it, but I am glad - Thanks for checking out my stuff in the first place, and please continue to do so in the future. Thanks, -Garrett.
Another jaw-dropping entry, Dave! The amount of complexity you were able to achieve in such a short period of time really amazes me. I also love the whole Chinese calendar concept as well...terrific idea. So, yeah...absolutely, you've got my vote. Brilliant work!
I know I sometimes have some unusual inspiration, but where from Microscale Mechadoom did you get Chinese Horoscope? I can only guess you got on the Godzilla vibe of giant creatures. Regardless, it was an inspired choice. The number of creatures allows for a variety of colours to play off against the neutral backdrop of the microcity and the shaping of each one is glorious - love the horse, tiger and boar especially. The erupting volcano is pure extravagance. You smashed this, great job.
So impressive! Do you ever just do a half attempt? You know... just to give somebody else a slim chance? Nah mate, you deserve all the credit you get for your astounding builds. These animals just blow me away! And the micro cityscape and volcano is beyond cool, its positively icebox! Don't ever stop!
This also would have totally taken Flare's Animal Domination contest. You really didn't need to go all overkill, you know, but you just completely destroyed Somers.

Heavily armed Water buffalo FTW! Wow, these are amazing. You've really brought your 'A' game to the MocO's. Are you ever gonna settle down, or is this crazy tornado going all the way? The parts usage was fantastic, and I really love the posable snake. That volcano and city are just amazing as well! I can't believe how genious you are with legos!
The tiger, the boar, the goat and the cobra all kill! They all do really, those four are just my favorites. It looks like a ton of fun building this, and all the mechs are very unique. It's nice to see some mech-diversity after the same basic build over and over again.
I can almost feel the fun you had building this. It's a nexplosion of mechalicious inventive. Of couse I h8 the lack of a proper description/story, telling us at least what's happening, but you get my vote without a second thought anyway.
Hilarious! I love the dragon and snake and the rooster is just hysterical! But that is one rabbit I don't want to keep in my backyard! Boom! LOL Anyway, nice weapons and details considering the size. And I like it how you gave each mecha a profile.
Thank you for your kind words on my entry. But enough of me... This is one extremely spectacular moc, Mr. Kaleta. You didn't just go above and beyond here - you went way the hel above and beyond above and beyond! You'll go far in these here Olympics, no doubt. Once again, excellent job, and I hope to see you go far.
So much to love here! What a great idea to work the Sheng Xiao into this category. As a dragon myself I'd love to say that was my favourite, but for me the hare and the rooster really steal it for being so incongruous! I'll be coming back to look at this one again and again.

EPIC! I dont see how you got that dragon posted ontop of the volcano. Are you using glue?
So, if you look in the first picture (after the promo) you can see a little of the trans-bar I used (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=42445).
There are two of them connected with some trans 1x1 & 1x2 plates. One of the bars is connected to the dragons back and the other goes fairly deep into the volcano. The wings act as a great counterbalance, but, believe me, I was surprised at how easily it stayed as well. I assure you, there is no glue, just friction and physics :)
Oh my Dave, these are just amazingly detailed! You could have stopped at 2 or 3 but the sheer volume and detail in this whole creation is great. Good luck, though luck wont be needed as much with creations like this on offer!
Very cool Dave. Love how you utilized the horoscope animals to tear the town up! It was a toss up with Andrew Somers, I thought he had a solid chance to take you out.....but I think you'll survive to see another round. This is the week of the dog.....the lucky dog that is you!!
