Who won the Talon Trophy?  Does that go to the winner, or were there other qualifications?

Sanjuro is our winner. Unfortunately the base figure I bought to use for the trophy has still not turned up. Trying to work things out with the seller.

Congratulations!
Thanks to everybody who participated, it was our biggest turn out yet. [applause]

I have a few ideas for the next comp, maybe a public domain character challenge or using one of those Superhero generator things to come up with your own character.

I'm very honored by the honorable mention.  When I saw the other entries, I thought i had been completely outclassed.  Thanks to everyone that put in a vote for me.

I'm going to give an honorable mention of my own to Nexus.  All of the customs were great, but I thought that was a very slick and professional looking piece.

Honestly, I didn't submit a vote because I literally couldn't pick one of these beauties over the others. Great job everyone!

You want to see deadlock? Ask 4 engineers where they want to go to lunch.

A custom contest FMS didn't win? Is that even allowed?
