I had a lot of fun doing this friendly mod making contest. It was an overall success. I was most pleased with seeing people that don't normally make mods or even create, getting in the studio and having fun making something that is their own!
But lets get to the winner! There was one mod that I personally found to be the most charming, and truly captured the heart and soul of what a Magical Wooden Man is. This Wooden Man is the official winner of the 2011 Magical Wooden Man Halloween Challenge!
The best qualities of a Top Tier Magical Wooden Man can be found in this mod. Its my favorite, due to its off the beaten path color scheme, charm, and prop work! There is an amazing little wooden man sitting on the brim of the top hat that just set this mod off.
SPECIAL THANKS: Again I want to give made props to Snake Girl for being chosen as this years Magical Wooden Man Challenge Winner, but I really want to thank everyone that really got into this contest for the pure fun of it! POULTRY_GOD did a great job getting the word out in the community. I want to thank ireeone and OnePoppa for making an excellent track titled Magical Wooden track. ireeone put a really nice track layout down with at least three routes and OnePoppa sculpted an awesome GIGANTIC Magical Wooden Man that's featured on the run. I wanted to thank ROSWELL120 for his participation in the challenge. He was the perfect example of what I wanted to do with this deal. ROSWELL120 first heard about the contest and told me," ya know I don't really make mods... I don't think I can do this." And by the end of the challenge he had made 5 Magical Wooden Men all his own! It was rad to see this in action. People coming together in the modspots or in casual races to talk about creating and make new stuff for the pure fun of creating. Thanks to everyone that got involved!
And now for the gallery of MWM! These are all the creations I viewed for the contest and a few just for fun mods. I decided to to display one wooden man from each creator even though some of these folks made many Magical Wooden Men.

This mod was published after the deadline, and I beleive its creator wanted to just join in the festivities for the fun of it, but this Magical Wooden Robot may be the most original Wooden Man around. Great work Corellian-YT1300.
