Metroid Database Presents:

Make-a-Metroid Contest!

Fall/Winter 2009

Kevin Rayner

1st Place

Name: Kevin Rayner

He came, he saw, he conquered. In a unanimous decision, we award the 1st prize winner to Kevin Rayner, who was able to create this extremely realistic metroid in all its glory. Kevin's quality, creativity, and above all else, attention to detail make his entry far and above the best one we received. (click for video!) Congrats, Kevin!

Jay Field

2nd Place

Name: Jay Field

We award Jay Field our 2nd place winner with his excellent entry. He created not just one, but four different iterations of Metroid: the egg, baby, larva, and Zeta forms. Jay's entry won over our energy tanks by using a variety of materials and transforming a dinosaur toy into a Zeta. (it growls!) Congrats, Jay!

Alvin Gordian

3rd Place

Name: Alvin Gordian

In 3rd place, the award goes to Alvin Gordian, (aka Etecoon on our forums) who created a very clean and high-quality metroid. We think he did a great job sculpting the nuclei on the inside as well as drawing the veins. The result is something he can be proud of that will look great sitting on his desk for years to come. Congrats to Alvin!

Honorable Mentions:

  1. Chainmailletroid by Britt Oertel
  2. Gingerbread Cookie Metroid and Samus by Ian Wagner-Smith
  3. Balloontroid by Aryn D

And here are all the entries!

Pat yourselves on the back guys, you're all winners in my book.
