Another great MOC from you. Really liked the clean nature of the creation, and the techniques used (i.e. the windows) were really awesome. Merry Christmas!

It's been said before, but the water here is downright fantastic. This is the first time that I have thought that plain clear plates look good for water. But it seems that you can make any piece look good, so I should have expected it at some point. Nice work.

Fantastic build here Blake. I continue to be impressed by your skill and eye for detail. I will certainly be borrowing some of your landscaping techniques as well. As others have said, the moose/elk head on the wall is a beautiful addition to this MOC. Additionally, I really like the use of the turntable bases for the windows. Very innovative. Well done and good luck in the contest!

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy I already expected that you would react in such a grown up way - like I said, we all have bad days. No harm done and as far as I am concerned, we can forget about all this. There's just one thing that might need a bit clarification from my side: My statement about the bionicle parts. True, I'm not a huge fan of bioncle, but that is no reason for me to not vote or grant just a few points for a MOC (Yuri for example got my vote). What I meant was this: Strip the Valkyrie of the bionlicle parts and what is left is not extremely impressive anymore. A builder with Tylers skills could have found regular brick substitutes for the well designed large bionicle parts. In that case, he would have gotten my vote for sure. In the end, we're all human beings, even the judges, and we'll never be free of personal interests or subjective behaviour. But that is exactly what makes us creative.
Thank you for your clarification. In this instance, I totally agree. Blessings to ye mate, and have a merry Christmas. Still sorry about the comments. :'(

Blake, first, this is a STUNNING build! I love it! And second... I think I may need an extra judge in the MocAthalon in March... someone from "outside the circle" as it were to be brought in to show that there are NO "shenanigans or "politics" behind the scenes. Interested? Think about it and let me know. Won't need to start setting things up till Feb so you've got time. Good luck in the contest! ~ Chris.

Quoting El Barto ! It's cool, Dude! I reread my comments, too, and I can understand how you came to those conclusions. Fair enough. But for the record, I was doing my best to stay positive instead of criticizing. It just came down to personal preference. You're a stand up guy, Blake, and thanks for the thoughtful words! Feel free to stop by anytime!
Having judged 1 or 2 contests in my time, I know your mindset about being positive. That is one of the things I really appreciated about your judging. I think you were the only one to vote for me in my final round, so I have a soft spot in my heart for you mate ;)

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Blake, I've been a bit reserved commenting on your latest creations, because I've read what you said about us MOC Olympic judges on flickr. Nevertheless, we're all grown ups and sometimes we say something in a momentary rage which we don't really mean. So back to your MOC. My favourite part is by far the elk head and the chandelier's chain. The whole creation is very balanced in shape and colour choice. Best of luck in the CCC.
First off, thank you for confronting me about the flickr comments. Thank you for addressing this issue directly, instead of holding a secret grudge against me. There is so much I wish to say, and so many ways that I wish to say it right now. Please be patient as I try to express my ideas clearly. First off, I will address my first comment. Since I suspect that both you and Barto (and perhaps many more judges) have seen or been shown my comments, I will take the liberty of pasting them here. --- "I didn't really want to say this on MOCpages, for fear of having my name branded as being forever judgmental but this SHOULD'VE WON! My money was on you from the beginning of the tourney, and having you getting knocked out of the tourney to Leda's solid yet lacking creation has really lowered my views of the judges decisions. I can't help but feel some politics were involved as is so often the case on MOCpages. Still, a truly excellent masterpiece, and one of which you should be well proud." ---- Alright, so as I said in this comment, my personal opinion was that Tyler should've won against Leda. (Please note that I have NOTHING against Leda. She has really become one of my favorite builders recently due to her incredible and creative photography. She is a regular visitor of my creations, and a loyal commenter. I really have come to appreciate her and her creations.) I won't take back that statement regarding my favored creation, however my comment about "Politics on MOCpages" was uncalled for and downright underhanded. While it is true that I have seen politics, it is completely unfair to label you MOCOlympics judges with that brand. I had a couple bad experiences of being discriminated against whenever I first joined the pages. The reasoning behind the insinuation was that all of the "against-Tyler" judges are in close circles with Leda, in things like the Secret Santa to name but one. This was a huge and drastic error on my part. For accusing all of the MO judges, I am sincerely sorry, and for that I apologize. So that addresses (partly) the first comment. Now for the second and lengthier. ----- "Looking back over the comments on your entry, I can really see what you are saying about the odd judging criteria. As I said before, there may have been some politics involved. From my experience with the judges who voted against you, I can track two of the four judges to Leda in one way or another. Another aspect is I bet they might be a tad jealous of your apparent skill. In effort to perhaps "take you down a notch" they voted against you. I may be sticking my neck out a little far on this comment, but I really get fed up with the politics and cliques that are so common on MOCpages. I agree with with your judging criteria, as do most seasoned FOLs who understand the science behind a good build and presentation. While the judge apologized and reworded his comment, there is still the trace that he did indeed judge you upon your previous creation which is rather tragic. I am rather flattered that you think so highly of me and my creations. I partly agree on the outcome of my Round 3, but I really liked the guy that I lost to so it wasn't nearly as bad as it could've been. Plus it cleared up more time for some CCCC :)"----- Okay, this one is pretty obviously about El Barto. First off mate, I hold NO enmity against you. You have been a major influence in my time on the community. Blessings to you my man. Alright. So as I said before, I was suspecting that some politics may have been involved for reasons before stated. (Looking back at this, I remembered that Heath who I consider to be along the same level as Leda, got out in the first round of the MO so I can see how you guys are not being biased in any way.) Once again this statement is totally wrong and I apologize profusely. BUT-- This brings me to the main point of the comment that I had posted on flickr. Addressing Barto's comment first, he said that "I'm afraid it doesn't offer the visual interest that your technic cat did, at least for me." Tyler and I both got the impression that Barto was judging based off of Tyler's previous creation, the stunning cat. Barto professionally reworded his comment, but the trace still remains. Now addressing Xeno's comment. My issue with this, was that you said "It's probably too much bionicle for me." This kind of alludes to the fact that you are judging based on your personal interests against Bionicle. ( I agree btw I HATE Bionicle ;) but it would have been more professional to judge strictly on the creation itself. I think the question of judging criteria was asked quite a good bit in the MO group and I believe that you responded very professionally to it. But judging based on sheer dislike of bionicle is a tough way to go. So-- My reasons for posting these biting comments? Hmm good question. I think part of me was still kinda sore from my loss in the MO, but as I said in the last part of the 2nd comment, I didn't mind losing nearly as much cause now I am able to make these creations for the CCC. It was a blessing in disguise. As well, I won the MCC, and I am probably going to do pretty well in another contest aside from the CCC. God closes a window, but makes a whole new bigger door that is 10x better. So Xeno, I feel awful at having violated your valued respect. You and I have been through a good bit together, so it would be terrible to hold a grudge against each other. So please allow me to express my sincere apologies, and take full blame for the comments on flickr. While my opinions still stand, my comments regarding you two were totally uncalled for and downright un-Christian.
Quoting El Barto ! Lovely setting! This is the kind of build that I'm into, personally. Lots of intricate details, and a sense of action from the figs. Everyone has their own preferences, and I think most of us come by them honestly, without an agenda. 'Nuff said. Good luck in the contest, Dude!
Thank you Barto :) Both to you and Xeno for overcoming your biases against me to comment. I hope I can earn your trust again, after I evidently spoke ill of you behind your back. This is yet another case of "Blake putting the ol foot in his mouth". I truly am sorry for the objectionable content within the posts. And I am incredibly sorry if they offended you in any way. If there is any way of recompense that I can do for you guys (and the other sacrificial MO judges) just let me know. I feel awful that you guys had to see the comments on flickr, and that the comments were written so hastily and unprofessionally. My sincere apologies, and Blessings to you both. Have a merry Christmas, and God Bless! SOLI DEO GLORIA! -Blake (I think I might've just posted my longest comment to date :)
