 Congratulations to all who won. Though does anyone else find it a little disturbing that the final character of the ultimate winner is a flaming asteroid? Hopefully not prophetic.

Great work, majestic sea should have won though, it was about 20 ft in length and 15 ft in height, he did an amazing job with it, that would have been great to see him win, he's an awesome kid, and he deserves it
