On my side... Daniel Kong too, I like the concept of armor for an Iron Kong. KAndrew Katterkiller, I love all the little pieces moving. Raul Rhadamantes, it is... good looking, and this is the sole Bio Zoid custom, if I'm not mistakening. And Chainer Wolftron, even if I'm not sure to vote for it, the concept is great.
Lionel "and my custom too, but that's another story"
Overall I'm really impressed with the customs this year, I said this in the other thread too but I'll say it again, this is the best year yet, the entries are very well done, very inspiring, and the photo quality seems to have improved a lot too.
I know ghe was concerned that if I share the custom I like the best it will win, that actually wasn't the case in the previous contests at all. In the first contest I liked Gun Striker by redshadow the best and it didn't even win third place, the year after that I liked Triceratropis by VF-1A the best and it only tied for third, so I think me saying which one I like the best isn't going to sway the forum.
That being said I really can't narrow it down to one because there are so many good entires this year. My top 5 for the entries are: Proto Rayse Liger by Alteka Terra Kong by Darth Daniel Megas Wolf by Epyon Gojulas Giga MK-II by Hi Docker! Geno Breaker Spectre by ped
Everyone else did a fantastic job too, those are just the ones that really stand out to me. -Phenotype

DD's kong jumped out at me. I must see more pics. DD: does the gorem head close all the way over the kong one?
ALSO: Ped's (sweet colors), not one but TWO bio-tyranno based customs, Alteka's (green tubing, detailing), Juno's (heavy hittin' weapons)...........................................$^&@_#%*@# (brain explodes)

Lionel hit my thoughts and feelings right on the nail in the other thread.
I'm rather surprised by the lack of genesis bio and regular zoid customs. Was hoping for an innovative gildragon and murasame/mugen, and lots o' bio customs. That and the fact we had all these reissues of old zoids... cannonfort especially is slick custom fodder.
After all this hype over people with airbrushes I was somewhat saddened to see not a lot of airbrushing
On positive notes, the photography indeed did improve a great deal, there were no CP 10s praise the lord, not too many CPs used, minimal use of genosaurer guns, again thankzelord, and there were some intresting, distinct color scheme present.
EDIT: Don't say who you voted for. We don't want to sway the members.

Several people have put int their top lists, so I'll share mine:
Wolftron by Chainer - I am a fan of the combining robots so this concept though not original is good to see in zoids. I give it more credit because it used regular models, not Blox like the ones seen before, and it uses wolfs, not lions.
Terra Kong by Darth Daniel - Getting a 1:72 to match with a 1:24 size is always awesome.
Benthic Katerkiller by KAndrw - Always a molga fan, and the extra motor action on this small zoid is a plus.
Zavenga by Lionel - Making a mini out of a large zoid is cool too.
Shiny Happy Death by Rantinan and Storm Gryphon by Y Avalon - How can anyone go wrong with violet/lavender/purple and pink zoids?
Soo many choices gotta make the vote. Better remind myself to vote here first instead of American Idol.
After reviewing Ligersword's entry I'm afriad I'll have to disqualify it as well as it doesn't appear to have any Zoid parts and the rules specifically state that the base of the custom must be a Zoid. I apologize for not noticing this earlier but I was so busy uploading the photos I didn't really have time to study them.
People, PLEASE read the rules next year, this is ridiculous that I've already had to disqualify two people when we never had to disqualify anyone in the past.
Also, I just had someone try to cheat by sending me votes from two accounts. Please don't pull this kind of crap because I will find out, I can check your IP address on here, and your votes will be denied. -Pheno
