80.5: Two Tone, One Set – Judging
1st Place: “Who is the real cactus?” by Luisin
Luisin took first place with his two toned cactus. The inspiration for this build is lined up on his windowsill. He achieved the spiral effect by alternating magnet colors in a long single strand. All that work paid off, because first place awards Luisin with $90.
2nd Place: “Black and White movie.” by Ra Tascon
In second place is Ra Tascon’s black and white video camera. A nice little homage to black and white film in black and white Neoballs. Ra Tascon says the video camera is one of his favorite builds with 216 magnets. Second place awards him with $80.
3rd Place: “Yin Yang” by DBOI
In third Place is DBOI’s Yin Yang. Impressively round in shape, and well staged. This is a very nice photograph, lots of visual interest. DBOI is awarded $60 for third place.
4th Place: “Welcome to OZ!” by YoyoBandalore
In fourth place is YoyoBandalore with a double layered ring made of Zens and orange magnets. Nice sharp focus and shiny magnets. Fourth place awards YoyoBandalore $35.
5th Place: “1H Battle Axe” by tend2it
In fifth place is tend2it’s scaled down battle axe made of Cyan Neoballs and Zen Magnets. A very nice original design, the details are impressive for only 216 magnets. Fifth place awards tend2it $20.
6th Place: “Magnetmoto” by Smither
Finally, we have Smither’s motorcycle. The Gunmetal and Black Neoballs give it an authentic coloration, and it has a nice low profile. The fact the handlebars are outright is impressive. Smither is awarded $15 for 6th place.
