Bloody well done Kutsu Shita. Congratulations!!!


TwoThums’ Charlie Brown Tribute

I think most all of you are at least familiar with Charles Schultz’s iconic comics and cartoons featuring the Peanuts gang. For TwoThum’s entry he did a fantastic tribute that features sprite art, Lucy’s Psych Stand, Snoopy’s Dog house, the kite eating tree, Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree and more. To top it all off the dog house plays Vince Guaraldi’s “Charlie Brown Theme”, which you can hear in the video below, and stick around after the song for an incredible music video showing off all the parts of his entry.

Mettaur_Meltdown’s MST3K Satellite of Love

This is an actual TO SCALE recreation of the iconic Satellite of Love and Pearl’s space Winnebago.  The interior features every room ever seen in the show and new rooms interlocking them.  He even figured out how to make the iconic series of doors opening to the theater.  Utterly fantastic!.  The best way to experience all of this is a video he made with a couple friends. The video is a little long but well worth the watch! You get to see all the glorious inner bits! And the DOORS!  OMG THE DOORS!


Now we have a very special award. An award of friendship, magic and yes Ponies! The award Triforce Mike wanted to give you so that he could have ponies! And you delivered. Oh boy did you deliver!

::The My Little Pony Award::

Mechsrule’s The Grand Race!

In the words of our beloved Hex, HOLY MONKEY! I mean this is some of the most spectacular sprite art we’ve ever seen!

Rainbow Dash! Hell yeah!


He did so many fantastic sprites for this grand race; you have to go see them all for yourself. There’s more pictures here on his entry form in the forums.


Upon seeing this next entry Triforce Mike demanded another award category! We all know what Triforce Mike wants, Triforce Mike gets; so the winner of this impromptu but well deserved WAKFU AWARD goes to….

Mopkins’ Dualing Rubilaxes!

Mopkins made not one but TWO Rubilax sculptures! One it it’s dagger form and the other in his much stronger longsword form.

Longsword form of Rubilax.

Felix_Farstrike’s They Killed Kenny – A gigantic grave site for Kenny from South Park with Kenny’s mittoned fist punching out of the earth.

Magnatus’ Villa of the Mysteries– A full recreation of the ACTUAL historic Pompeii structure! The entry was inspired by HBO’s Rome.

That is it for our top 10! But we can;t forget about the other terrific entries. You see everyone did a great job and it makes it really difficult to decide who wins and who doesn’t.
