Interest in the GAF Challenge: Epyon vs Zero Poll
« on: July 03, 2011, 05:17:20 AM »

Alright, due to the mixed reactions to the GAF Challenge I created, I put up this poll, the votes will decide if it actually goes live, if not, the Challenge will be reverted to a simple Epyon Group Build and the Grunt MS: Ex Group Build will probably be the main focus on my end where prizes come from. Sonar has something cooking....  ;)

I just had simple idea and sometimes ideas don't work, I'm human enough to understand that so you're not going to hurt my feelings if this thing doesn't get going  ;D

I love the idea, but I think now isn't the best time. People are still trying to GET their Epyons, and others are working on building them.

I think this concept should be revisited in 4-6 months, when most people will have their Epyons finished. And those who will be looking ahead to this can get and build MG Wing Zero as well.

Again, great idea, bad timing.

I disagree. Now is a great time for it as the buzz at it's peak when a kit is released.

Maybe we can rewrite the idea a bit? Who can pull off the baddest Epyon pose? (Extra points for those who incorporate a Wing!)

I'm interested. I've got a Ver Ka Wing Zero from waay back. It's, uh, not in the normal colours though. MG Eypon arrived on Friday too, so I'm all set.

First I think I need to finish my PG Strike Freedom Apocalyptic Gauntlet though! September isn't far away!

The idea is great man I think most people just didn't understand the concept in the beginning but that was cleared up in the end, im mega keen on the epyon and if I can get one before the end of this competition ill be in for sure.

Kjasi: as sonar said now is the best time while the kit is new and every body is wanting it plus those that might be on the fence may be convinced by a competition, if we waited we might as well just use any epyon kit :p

You know, not every release needs to come with a group build.

I'm with Sonar, I think the idea I came up with was too sudden notice and it needed more time to stew. The idea of the a good Epyon photo contest could work, perhaps intregated into a Group Build. A massive build off maybe?

Here is my thought,if you want a group build or build off or anything that has to do with making a epyon kit that stands out.And not just creating a nice pose for epyon and snap a nice photo,scrape the idea of putting wing zero inside.I mean if you get extra points for the wing zero then its not fair to those people who doesn't have time or money to get the wing done.This idea is getting complicated and it should be simple so that there won't be this many misconceptions.Why not you do a photo contest for those people who just want to straight build their epyon and let someone else organize a group build for those who are willing to spend more time on their epyon. I'm just trying to find a perfect solution for the modelers here,ok?

So I'm going to call the poll now. It was close, but it ended with negative interest. So here's what's going down. This contest will be reverted to a Group Build, HOWEVER, at the end of the build (contest cut off date, GB will probably be Open like the ReZEL. It's Epyon, has to be!), the final builds will be judged by the GAF staff and someone(s) will win aforementioned prizes. Capture the essence of Epyon the best. Win a prize. Details for the judging process will be announced soon.  I will be participating in the GB, but obviously I am not eligible for the prize. :P

Epyon GB, sounds interesting.  I think I will participate the GB, but I am still waiting for my Epyon to arrive...probably have to wait another 2 weeks (SAL) ... :)
