LEGO Ferris Wheel, Chestburster, and... Popcorn Bowl?

We asked for your gravity-defying and mind-blowing designs in our Brick Shirt Construction contest, and boy howdy, did we ever get them.

We're not exactly sure how Nathan Sawaya--the baron of the brick himself, and creator of the first prize--chose his favorites, but we like what he came up with. Our most esteemed winners doth follow.

1st place, Dan Havens, LEGO Ferris Wheel (with R2D2):

In addition to winning our first place prize of a $500 ThinkGeek gift certificate, Mr. Sawaya will award the budding brick artist one of his sculptures. We can't wait to see what he chooses!

2nd place, David Simmons, Kane's Tummy Trouble:

3rd place, Moses Ong, Popcorn Bowl:

Honorable mention, Peter Damm, Stabbed in the Back:

meaningless icon! @waknatious It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry 'I could have thought of that' is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too. Douglas Adams
