"great concept, executed excellently. Doesn't resemble the Rooz after Glen had worked his magic on it. Love the weathering and antiquing details the Steambud." ~adds Contest Judge Jake from Pobber.
"Steampunk manifest unto a build both impressive and thematically spot-on amidst a selection of superb submissions, this particularly tugged at my heart with it's brand of hope and melancholy made into a toy-form. And with it feels a real story there to be told, too, which gives it a depth that is both enticing and intriguing - bravo, Glen!" ~metnions Contest Judge Andy of TOYSREVIL.
"I think there is a real warmth of character which comes from the piece. Its not just a great build but also has a heart. Not an easy thing to capture." ~mentions Contest Judge Doktor A.
