With the tri-tearer top drill in a delicate transitional state, the Autobot Science B-Team failed to comprehend what Wheeljack meant when he said he wanted them to "cover the device in limbo".

They got there in the end with minimal spinal strut injuries, although it seems like no one's noticed that the drill isn't in a limbo state any longer.

Intentional visible head syndrome, cos Rust Dust and Victorion got things to talk about!

Great work everyone, I now officially close the contest. Now to convene the judges... although this being New Years Eve, that might be a difficult task! :D

Hey everyone, just popping in to note that you haven't been forgotten. Still waiting for the last lot of scores to be compiled as not all our judges have checked in yet.

Perhaps something more organised, but the odd game like this every once in a while to get everyone active would certainly be nice. Hopefully might even draw some lurkers out to join the fun.

For this game I think round two was the most exciting of the three rounds. It offered nearly the same range of freedom as round one, but you had to use your head a bit as well.

Exciting! :D Thanks Vestra and big thanks to NKF for running the competition. It was a heap of fun working out how to best respond to each brief, setting everything up to photograph and then seeing the ingenious things that everyone else had come up with. Given that I've got most of my 'official' base-formers boxed up at the moment it was a particular joy to mess around with the titans masters in a base-setting. I find the small scale and interaction with vehicles and larger figures more endearing than the head swapping.
