Contest

And the winner of the MondoTees/AICN Metal Tyler Stout RoboCop poster is...

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with the winner of this awesome RoboCop poster, a limited edition printed on metal signed by artist Tyler Stout. Retailing at $300, this is what it looks like.

I waded through the entries, which ranged from god-awful to confusing to smart and really cool. If you remember what I wanted was a magazine ad in the tradition of the darkly satirical TV commercials from the movies. Take a look below at the top 10 finalists. I will start out with the top three, winner first and include the 7 runners up. The winner of the contest is one Mr. Ryan Parker of San Antonio, TX. There were slicker ads, there were funnier ads, but I think this one looked exactly like it was pulled out of an old magazine and the way the text reads with the image cracks me up every time I look at it.

Jamie Martin of England came close with this, which is very polished (love the coffee stain), but the humor wasn’t quite there for me.

The third place would be this entry from Timothy Lim and Mark Pellegrini of Little Rock, Arkansas. I love the style, I love the humor, I love the crinkling of the paper, but it didn’t feel like it came out of a vintage magazine to me. Great effort, though, guys.

Now here are the 7 others that were under serious consideration. Some are very rough, but made me laugh, some didn’t make me laugh, but looked sharp and some are just interesting. From Michael Wayne Smith from South Boston, MA… “I’m not “ruff” on the environment” had me laughing out loud.

The next comes from Chad Boutilier of Canada. It’s pretty sweet, but looks like a page out of a comic book more than a piece of standard print advertising. His idea isn’t all that far off, probably.

The next one comes from Ben Martin and Beth Link of Denver, Colorado. I liked the colored pencil style and the topical satire.

Next up is an entry from Josh Gilbert of Glendale, WI. I found it really funny.

This entry from Jason Nelson was heavy on the topical social satire and was well designed, just fell short of the look I wanted.

I loved the torn newspaper look of Jason Kontolemos’ entry. A lot of time and effort went into this one and it was probably 4th on my finalists. Great work, Jason.

And finally we have Scott Gordon of Birmingham, AL. His entry was the funniest. The satire was right on, but the craftsmanship didn’t exactly fit the contest. But I still laugh when I look at it.

Thanks to all who entered and thanks to MondoTees for supplying the awesome poster. And another congratulations out to Ryan Parker for the win. Enjoy that poster! I’m incredibly envious. I look forward to seeing a lot of you guys at the big cast and crew reunion screening of NIGHT OF THE CREEPS I’m hosting at the Alamo Ritz tomorrow night. I had dinner with Tom Atkins, Jill Whitlow, Jason Lively, Fred Dekker, Jason Lively, Steve Marshall and DVD producer extraordinaire Michael Felsher tonight and they are super awesome. It’s going to be a kicking night. And if you didn’t get your mitts on this MondoTees poster, check the Alamo lobby before the screening to pick up their Night of the Creeps event poster. It glows in the dark! Check it out below!

    I seriously wanted to enter this contest, but had no time.

    by DerLanghaarige

    My idea was an electro shock collar for kids. Kinda like: "You kids won't listen? Zap 'em! It's very pain-, but NOT harmful. Next time little Timmy will think twice, before he doesn't want to eat his vegetables."

    Congratulations! Pat yourself on the back, and hold your head up high! You've officially joined the "FIRST" douche bag club! You're part of an elite group of losers now, that you can be proud of, tell your kids about, and someday, impress your grand children! So, raise you glass, toast the family, and be proud of your new douche bag status!

    by alucardvsdracula

    Can't believe she got missed off such a cool piece of artwork. I think the artist needs to scrap it and start all over again.

    for once, i'm happy with the winner

    by rebel299

    holy shit that looks like it could come out of a 1980's magazine. hell, i think my parents have the original copy of that in a magazine in the guest bathroom. i do have to give props for the rest of the top 10, good stuff. you can tell some people put a lot of work into this, which is more than you could say for most of hollywood these days

  • June 13, 2009, 6:45 a.m. CST

    Love that NOTC poster

    by Boba Fat

    But the sentrybot is my personal fave. They're all good though and you know what, you're all winners, except Ryan Parker is the actual winner, but you can call yourself a winner, even though it's not technically correct. Well done!

    Hilarious. LOL

    Data east building...

    by otlguy

    Data East was the video game company!!!!! Mayor Kuzak was the mayor in RC!! 762-6267 spells ROBOCOP! Little easter eggs for the RC fan... all the guns in the ad are from the movie.....the building though not in the movie has been dubbed the Robocop building locally it's a uncompleted building in SP, Brazil. Awesome entries!!! Congrats to everyone!!!

    Should've Submitted My Idea

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    I didn't think any of the winners were very good at all. NONE of them felt like the satire of RoboCop's world to me ... esp. given the use of real product names (PONTIAC) versus fake over-the-top ones (6000 SUX - NUKE 'EM). The winner's gag (BIG CAR EQUALS BIG PENIS!) is ripped off from an ad in the actual movie - as opposed to something original. Mine was going to be for a product called CEOICIDE.

  • June 13, 2009, 10:20 a.m. CST

    The Product ...

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    ... was to have been a service for CEOs of failed companies to painlessly euthanize you and also to take care of all the fallout following your death and make sure the money got into the hands of your descendents instead of those now-homeless former employees who would just waste it on food.

  • June 13, 2009, 10:22 a.m. CST

    But I didn't enter ...

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    ... because I figured the other entries would be so much better than mine. Huh. Imagine that.

  • June 13, 2009, 10:48 a.m. CST

    Thanks quint

    Your idea wasn't better then the winners. Or any of the other shown entries. At all. So don't loose any sleep about it...

  • June 13, 2009, 6:22 p.m. CST

    I agree with your choice Quint

    by Cinemanimetal

    The winner really is the best here! It has a very authentic vintage magazine look. Plus its just funny and gets to the core of what most car ads are really about. Good work on all of these though.

    I think the anti-rape tampon is the most creative.

    No offense to the winner...

    by DarthCorleone

    ...it's a fine ad, but it doesn't feel like the Robocop universe. There's much more creativity in some of the others than a retread of the overdone fancy-car-equals-compensation-for-little-penis.

    by itsjust_notcool_anymore_baby

    Pretty much sums up why RC is a true sci-fi classic. I really hope my dude Aronofsky gets it right. Wouldn't that be something??? An alright (dare I even say pretty good) remake?
