Alright, here are my scores for everyone. There are also explanations for why I chose the score, and all of them are pretty long, so sit down, grab a nice drink, and get ready to read.

Nick Jensen - We'll Make Great Pets -

First off, the whole MOC is overall very well done. I really like the concept. It refers to 70s pop culture and is executed nicely. I thought the selection of minifigs was perfect, and going with a smooth vignette was a good choice.
Not quite sure about the small picture up in the right hand corner. Maybe something else up there would have been more suitable.
Still, I really enjoyed this MOC; although probably not to the fullest extent as someone from the 70s (Even though Nick isn't either), but still; Nice job. I’m giving you a score of 4.25. (The googley eyes were funny and a great idea. ;) )

Rubik - The Pet of the Future! -

Overall: Good job. I really liked the build. The pet itself had a nice, clean design, with cool looking legs. The 1 eye was also a good choice. For some reason, I liked that.
And although I thought that the base for the "pet" was unnecessary, it was good enough to actually enhance the MOC. Once again, nice smooth tiles.
But the best part of the creation: the marketing. You totally convinced me to buy it. This has been the pet I've always been looking for. You don't need to pick up after it, and it has wi-fi connectivity! What more could you ask for? Hahaha, just kidding around, but seriously...good writing skills
Unfortunately, I found something a bit lacking in the whole thing that I can't put my finger on. It seems...I don't know...too simple? I feel like maybe a little more complexity could have been nice, but the build itself is still solid.
Although I don't have $200 lying around at the moment, good work on the build. I'ma give you 3.75. Good job.

E.K.O =/ - "we will make great pets" mob rules entry! -

Alright, first off, I'll have to say...I struggled with this one. I kinda’ feel like a je rk with this one, but I gotta’ do this. I carefully reviewed what I was going to say several times to not totally sound evil.
Ok, first, I look at the title. It reads: “"we will make great pets" mob rules entry!”
I expectations were immediately low. No real title? All I know is it’s an entry and that it will remotely do with pets. The other two entries just stated the contest category or something to do with pets. Next time, just slide that into your introduction and maybe have something like “We’ll make great pets”. ;)
Anyway, then I look at the build...but I’m not quite sure what the build is. From what I can tell, it’s four figs, a bunch of parts, and a SNOT baseplate. So far, the snot baseplate is pretty good, although immediately ruined by the background. The white cord was really distracting. The presentation was pretty bad. Next time, just add in some nice white paper, and put it up against the wall. Also if you can, go to a Wal-Mart or superstore and get white posterboard. It’s even better. ;)
But anyway, so the bird...I was actually, extremely impressed by bird. It only used roughly ten or twenty parts, had a great look, and could almost be a droid for the Confederacy of Independent Systems/Separatists (SW) because of the color scheme.
But once again, the thing itself is ruined by the presentation. I really disliked the whole story to be honest. I felt the thing was sabotaged by you just trying to get “teh LULZ”. Covered in over capitalization, misspelling, and lower case words, I was a bit lost. Yes, I know you apologized for misspelling though. ;)
But all I really wanted to see was the bird, and a brief intro, and to get out. UNLESS the story was interesting and/or funny. Now I could tell you a few other things, but I'm not going to because this thing had A LOT of potential!
Trust me though; I'm trying to help you; not hurt.. and if you were offended: this is a contest where the people are judges and I am free to express my opinions. If I allegedly got you really ticked off, tell to me that you would like to discuss it and we will.
And people could say the same thing about mine, that the presentation was lame, but who cares! They can tell me. That's good. Then, I can change it for next time. So don't be yelling at me. ;)
But anyway, despite all that, I'm giving it a 2.25. The bird was pretty awesome looking, but was hard to look past all the stuff that got in the way.

There are my scores. All we need is one more person to put in their info and then we're good. =)

Casey, this is the second time I've had to moderate and approve this post. Not sure why you deleted it the first time, I didn't notice anything different. Or maybe you tried to edit it, change a score or a word or something?

Anyway, FYI -- the four letter word that begins with L and ends with E and has AM in the middle immediately triggers moderation. As far as I can tell that was the problem with this post.

Since everyone in here who built has judged, I'm going to start figuring your scores. Do me a favor and don't go changing them before the deadline, okay?



And Cade... do I warn him, or let him figure it out for himself?

Oh sorry about that Shannon.

I posted my review last night and it didn't get approved after I waited a very long time. I thought it was getting ignored or something. I believe that the word that needed moderation was the word that starts with J, ends with K, and has E-R in the middle. It said so in the Help area I think.

So anyway, I re-edited explanations and resubmitted figuring I could bypass the server. Then the second review was actually posted this time in a short amount of time.

Then, I read through my post and noticed a couple errors in my writing. I edited it and didn't know it would have to get moderated again.

It was the first time I've ever sumbited something twice, and now I feel like a noob. =P

Sorry about the inconvenience, and thanks for letting me know.
