Alright, what we've all been waiting for... Roundup Report Time!!!
For anyone who isn't aware, last summer, the Star Wars fan community lost one of its most spirited customizers, Mike Martinez
, known around the forums as Mercuryartstudios
In his honor, three fan sites came together to realize a customizing contest that he had been working on, and the participation was amazing. We would like to thank the customizing community for such a strong showing in this multi-site customizing tribute to our friend that we miss so much. The theme was anything related to SWTOR, and entries could be fan fiction, etc. but did need to include three figures. It was basically a "loose interpretation" of an Evolutions theme for SWTOR.
In no particular order, here's a roundup of all the amazing entries...
Once the deadline for the contest had passed, we had a difficult time choosing a grand prize winner, but our consensus was that the first place winner should be forum member Wookiee Balls
- congratulations to him for his amazing custom entries, and for his prize - a Sideshow Commander Gree
After that, three random winners were selected. They are as follows:1st Random Winner - Revanfan1
2nd Random Winner - Botwt
3rd Random Winner - JediMinstrel
In order to claim the prizes, Revanfan1
will first need to post in the forum which prize he has selected from the prize pool. After he makes his selection, Botwt
will post his selection, and then JediMinstrel
will receive the remaining prize. You will each be contacted by a sponsor of the contest to make shipping arrangements.
The Random Winner prize pool is as follows: NOTE - Since Hasbro's distribution woes continue, the Republic Tank is not available yet. Whoever chooses that prize will be contacted by the contest sponsors to discuss arrangements. We will certainly work with you if you prefer a substitute prize.
Thank you again everyone for your participation (and to Tamer
at Imperialshipyards and David
at Echobase), and if the support is there, we may look to doing another joint contest in the future.
We hope this was as much fun for everyone who participated as it was for us, and we sincerely thank you, and we'll always miss our friend, Mike Martinez
. God bless you and your family, Mike!
