I managed to vote... sad thing was I would have definitely voted for BOTH of these against any other in the contest. I think the decision here is are you more impressed by a non-traditional design which hugely plays to the character represented, or are you more into a somewhat traditional mech, with a weapon along the lines of what the character always has, but MAGNIFICENTLY built? I honestly feel bad that I'm not voting for the one I didn't pick. I mean... you've got a pistil and polar bears to throw... who can decide!
I hate the idea that my podracer entry was the closest I'll come to a win, but I am getting more comfortable with the philosophy that I'm competing to best myself, and to push myself to build what I would want to see.
