Your Chance to sway the 2009 Whiffies.
« on: February 06, 2009, 06:32:31 pm »
Ok, it is the first week of Feb. and several people think I should create a thread for people to post their favorites for next years Whiffies.  I was trying to wait till I got the voting out for 2008 but after being sick most of this week and behind my schedule, figured I better get it started as there has already been several great builds for this new year.  Besides, the mods haven't said not to do this so here goes.

Remember, the Gallery is a great place to post your own builds and profiles so people can find them easily.  This is set up for others to post what they like so far. Oh yeah, links to the builds will make it easy to find for those that haven't seen them yet.

With that, this thread is now open...

Might fit several award nomination categories as it has many of the features that grab my attention in a What If:
- very original concept
- Scale-O-Rama effect
- modified parts
- customized decals
- kitbashed parts
- great backstory
- very high quality finish
Styrene in my blood and an impressive void in my cranium.

Since I finally got the voting under way for the 2008 version I can concentrate a little more on what is new this year.  And since this thread is getting so much use so far (hey, you guys requested it) I figured I would add to it myself.
If you haven't seen it yet, BDB has finished another build for a GB.

Sotoolslinger, instead of just posting a load of links, could you at least tell us what it is and by whom so we know if we've seen it before, thanks :)
