Yeah, of course! Can you edit the post with the shot in rather than post it again on this page? Just be better to keep all the shots on page one.

Spoon of Ploff. Although Hedgehog's 3rd shot was a belter, Sploff just edged it.

Can someone please explain the references in h90's last. I'm going to need to think very carefully.

I'm may have to abstain.  Spoon of Ploff's first return was a stunner, but hedgehog90 was better overall.  My immediate choice would be to vote for Spoon for that return, but I can't work out if that instinct is tinged with the fact that I want my vanquisher to win the tournament just so I feel better about losing.

I think Spoon of Ploff just edges it. hedgehog90's third almost swung it for him, but I think Ploff was slightly better overall.

It really is a belter of a final.

hedgehog90 

Opener is a masterpiece, and The Star-Brucie is also magnificent/cosmically terrifying

Too much politeness. Unless I really missed something...Hedgehog's second was lazy. What the hell is that poster? I thought 2001 but google images shows elements but not the full thing...embryo above the earth movie poster comes up with nothing - but its iconic, isn't it?

So, if its just a overlayed image of Brucie in an embryonic sac...it suffers greatly. His last was brilliant though.

It's one of the final - and iconic - images from 2001: A Space Odyssey, with the baby in the orb, arguably a reborn form of the astronaut.

Ploff's reply was the one I thought was a bit lazy, to be honest - the "full of stars" joke referring to celebrities is one I've thought of/heard before and the image editing felt a bit slapdash. The other two were absolutely brilliant, mind you.

Can someone please explain the references in h90's last. I'm going to need to think very carefully.

It's one of the final scenes of 2001 (just before the star-baby, in fact) with Ken Dodd's Diddymen and the TV screen shopped in, plus the figure in the bed suitably altered.

That makes it sound very mundane, which it definitely isn't.

WARNING: the following links potentially spoil the ending of 2001 in a way that the 'shops don't.

This shot is what I based #2 on and it's pretty iconic. I couldn't use it as a basis though due to the angle of the child and dimensions (rules state 8:6 or 6:8), so I had to bash something together that looked similar and fit.

I also included the space station which features prominently in the artwork as an additional clue just in case it wasn't immediately gettable.

Yup, it is, and was instantly gettable for me, and would have been even if we hadn't had two prior 2001 shots.

I nearly posted that one too, but figured people would have had enough of bad article links by then.

Oi. Wimblewrongs should stand or fall on their own.

Explanations and reference reveals should be saved for after voting.

Its a choice the player makes.. asking the question 'will they get this?'

It is a bit late now, but yeah, this is absolutely right; it's generally not Wimblewrong etiquette to explain the shots before voting has closed. If you must do it, keep it to PMs.

Ah yes. I recognised the first 2001 ref but somehow could only dimly remember the second image. Also, never heard of diddymen. My mother loathed Ken Dodd and he was banished from the house.

I can't get h90's first out my head. It's wonderful. h90.

It was an amazing game, and a hard decision to make, but for me it's Hedgehog90.

You don't know just how fortunate you are.

Apologies, I had no idea.  Was just answering pancreas' request, and filling in Blodders while I was here.

I'll bugger off back to GB now, from whence I came.

The Bayeux Tapestry is my all time favourite piece of media, Hedgehog90 has claimed my vote. If I ever had a tattoo it would be the Bayeux Tapestry.

I have asked hedgehog by pm for a high-res version of the Brucie Bayeux-ness, if he has one.

Otherwise I want it made please.
