Title: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 02, 2013, 03:26:13 PM
I wanted to make an elimination thread for this idea for a while now. I held back for a while though just to give a break from the elimination threads. But now since the summer time is around and people have more free time, I felt that I would give this topic a try.

Anyways, we have had plenty of discussions in the past about the best and worst looking artifacts on the show. I figured we could use this elimination thread to find the best artifacts that were featured throughout Legends. When basing your votes though, we are not talking about a temple or player performance when voting for an artifact. We are voting on the design of the artifact and how it relates to its Legend to a certain extent.

Some of the artifact designs might be fuzzy to you. Below is Ed/Nicklegend's episode list that contains an image of every artifact on the show. Just click on an episode title to see how an artifact looks like.

http://nicklegends.elfractal.com/episodelist.html (http://nicklegends.elfractal.com/episodelist.html)

Rules:
- You can eliminate an artifact from the list every three hours. You also DO NOT have to wait for another person to vote between that three hour period. So essentially, you can have two consecutive votes as long as they are three hours apart.
- It takes one vote only to remove an artifact from the list, not three strikes like the other recent threads.
- Once an artifact is voted for, it will be removed from the list and won't be put back up.
- We will rank the final 25 remaining artifacts.
- I will update the list every page to avoid massive scrolling and it is more efficient to do so anyways.
- Have fun!

May the best artifact win! I will start it off in the next post. ;)

The first artifact to go is the Lost Lariat. This artifact was literally a piece of rope with no thought put into it at all. Most uninspiring artifact on the show? I think so. It was like the producers found some rope and decided to tell a story about it.  :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on July 02, 2013, 03:42:14 PM
Neat idea TRJ ;)


The Collar of Davy Crockett was a pendant of life, so off it goes :roll: :roll: :roll:

The Snow Cone of Mount Kilimanjaro was awkward. I mean, if it were made of snow, wouldn't it have melted and evaporated by the time it was brought to the temple?!
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 02, 2013, 05:53:11 PM
Down goes The Melted Head of Madame Tussaud. Very creepy artifact. A melted head? Yeah, no. It's out now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread

The Snow Cone of Mount Kilimanjaro was awkward. I mean, if it were made of snow, wouldn't it have melted and evaporated by the time it was brought to the temple?!

Heh, that was going to be next elimination.  :P I agree, a Snow Cone making it's way to the temple while still in perfect condition wouldn't make sense to anyone. Plus, what do the producers think a Snow Cone actually looks like? The artifact itself looks like a cup of beer! So much stuff wrong with this one.

I am going to get rid of the Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci. A famous artist like Da Vinci should have something better attached to their name like they did with the Priceless Portrait and Missing Portrait. But a Paintbrush? How uninspiring. :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on July 02, 2013, 09:41:12 PM
The Bifocal Monocle will be the next to go. While the name is interesting, it should not have had an eye painted onto it.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Bandit King on July 02, 2013, 09:50:37 PM
This is an interesting idea.

Anyway, I'll get rid of Galileo's Cannonball. It was literally just a black ball...nothing more.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 02, 2013, 09:59:23 PM
The Treasure Map of Jean Lafitte goes next for me. I mean, this was literally a recycled artifact re used from John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine. Talk about uncreative, so it goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 02, 2013, 10:08:50 PM
Map artifacts aren't interesting. I'll get rid of Blackbeard's Treasure Map now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on July 02, 2013, 10:16:24 PM
John Sutter & the Map to the Lost Gold Mine goes next. Great episode, uninteresting artifact.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 02, 2013, 11:34:52 PM
I don't think we ever see a close-up shot of the Secret Battle Plan. All it was anyways is a wrapped up document. Not very creative at all. I expected something better considering it was a Battle Plan that belonged to the enemies. It goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 03, 2013, 12:23:18 AM
Speaking of maps, good bye Missing Weather Maps!
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 03, 2013, 09:05:49 AM
Darn, that was gonna be my next one. :P

I can't believe the Shriveled Hand of Efoua hasn't been taken off the list yet. If you thought the Melted Head was creepy, this was some broken off hand for crying out loud. Who would want to retrieve an artifact like that? :shock:
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on July 03, 2013, 10:25:30 AM
Mummified Hand goes too, that was creepy
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 03, 2013, 10:28:53 AM
Next to go is The Keys to the Alhambra. It was just a chain of fake keys. Lame artifact, lame episode. :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 03, 2013, 11:23:50 AM
The Oracle Bowl was pretty lame too. It looked like it was ceramic bowl made in an Elementary school art class. They could've at least put more details into it.  :roll:

The Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny, like Galileo's Cannonball, was just a ball. Although it was a different color, it wasn't a very creative artifact.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 03, 2013, 11:32:28 AM
Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand was lame too. It was just a pair of playing cards glued together. It's uncreative, so it can go now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 03, 2013, 07:35:36 PM
The Trojan Horseshoe was lame as well. If the Greeks attacked with a wooden horse, why would it leave a horseshoe sitting around? Plus, the artifact was kind of bland anyways.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 03, 2013, 09:44:50 PM
If Trojan Horseshoe goes, so does the Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy. It was pretty much the exact same artifact.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 03, 2013, 10:11:05 PM
The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart is not so lucky now. This was basically just a ceramic piggy bank. How creative! I'm surprised it didn't fall off the ladder it was sitting on. :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 03, 2013, 10:23:59 PM
The Dried Ear of Corn was such a lame artifact too. Why would you associate Sojourner Truth with that? Plus, it should be more than just "dried" if it has sat in the temple for that long. :shock:
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: NekoSuave on July 03, 2013, 10:36:09 PM
If the Dried Ear of Corn goes, so should the Dried Apple Half of William Tell. Same problem that TRJ mentioned; it should be a whole lot more than dried. It probably shouldn't even exist anymore. >_>
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on July 03, 2013, 11:06:25 PM
King Tut's Cobra Staff was used during many moat crossings and (if I remember correctly) a few temple games. There is no way I would consider a reused prop one of the "best" artifacts.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on July 03, 2013, 11:11:00 PM
The staffs were different ;)


Milk Bucket was for sure reused from a Temple Game prop. Off it goes
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 03, 2013, 11:29:07 PM
The Golden Chains of Zenobia were nothing more than chains. Uninspiring artifact. It goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 04, 2013, 09:31:37 AM
The Stolen Arm of Shiva was some broken off arm, talk about uninspiring. This goes next.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on July 04, 2013, 09:39:46 AM
The staffs were different ;)

I meant that there were moat crossings where teams used a cobra staff to cross. And I can't remember specifically, but I believe there was a temple game where a cobra staff was incorporated into the game.

The Stolen Arm of Shiva was some broken off arm, talk about uninspiring. This goes next.

Not to mention, why does the Stolen Arm look so musculature when it belonged to a statue?  :o

The Diary of Dr. Livingstone was pretty bland. All it was just an old-looking book. It is gone now.

Is Golden Pepperoni still here? If so, I'm getting rid of it
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on July 04, 2013, 01:02:13 PM
The Gordian Knot was a twisted rope. I'm surprised it wasn't removed alongside the Lost Lariat, so it will be removed now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 04, 2013, 01:20:26 PM
The Lost Books of Magellan was a lame artifact. I barely remember what it looks like. It goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 04, 2013, 01:29:55 PM
Is Mystical Spellbook still here? If so, then it can go now. Like The Diary of Dr. Livingstone, it was just a book.

The Jeweled Necklace was pretty lame looking, especially when you compare it other artifacts like the Jeweled Scabbard, Jewel-Encrusted Egg, and Pearl Necklace. It looks like some producer's daughter made this artifact. :roll:

The Belly Button of Buddha looked like it was a green stone on a piece of curved cardboard, and it was hollow on one side.

Actually, nobody eliminated Silk Ladder ( :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: ) yet. So it is still fair game for elimination. ;)

And while I do want to get rid of the beloved Silk Ladder, there is no way that the Sacred Ring will last for any longer. The size of the artifact was grossly over exaggerated even though the design was pretty neat. I don't expect it to be as small as a regular ring, but it looks like it's suppose to be a bracelet.

Although Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth sounded interesting (and long), the artifact was not as impressive.

The Mush Pot Hat was another interesting name for an artifact, but all it was just a piece of cooking ware used as a hat. Time for it to go.

Why is the Lost Love Letter of Captain John Smith still here? It was just a lousy sheet of paper...

The Lily-Crested Crown looked like one of the those paper crowns you got back at Burger King back in the day. So it goes next.

The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelley wasn't that great of an artifact. It can go now.

The Lost Whale Bone was pretty bland also. It was just a giant animal bone that looked a little cartoonish. It is gone now from this list though.

To be honest, there are so many lame artifacts. We might see some surprises make it far. I gotta make sure that Enormous Feather doesn't get there. It was just a silly feather, nothing else. :roll:

It's been three hours for me, and I am getting rid of the Bent Shaving Pan next. This was such a bizarre choice for an artifact to begin with. And the whole artifact itself looks like a mess and looks junky. Time for it to go.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 08, 2013, 02:19:18 AM
I can't believe the Codebook lasted that long considering the Mystical Spellbook and Diary were eliminated a long time ago.

I am getting rid of the Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary next. The artifact was way too tiny to even notice. You would think that the Medal would be more bigger considering what Sir Edmund Hillary had to go through.  :?

Anyway, out goes The Golden Cup of Belshazzar. It was just a cup, nothing else.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 08, 2013, 12:45:32 PM
I am not too worried if you posted under the 3 hour limit. And I am sure you didn't either way. ;)

Time for the Secret Map to go. While it had a better design than some of the other Map artifacts, it wasn't that impressive compared to what's left. Plus, the black ink on it is unrecognizable and makes it look like one of those ink blots.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread

The Moccasins of Geronimo can go next. A fake pair of shoes really isn't an interesting artifact to look at.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 08, 2013, 11:11:53 PM
I hate to say it, but The Leopard Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley really wasn't very appealing at all. It was just some ugly looking cloth where the producers went "hey, what artifact can we make of this?" And it was way too oversized.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 08, 2013, 11:14:02 PM
The Imperial Purple Robe might actually be the same item as Leopard-Skin Cloak. I remember us talking about this in the past and they might be the same. They should definitely go back to back and that's exactly what has happened now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 09, 2013, 05:57:13 AM
The War Fan is the next one to go. It was just a red fan and I am sure it didn't take the producers that long to make. :roll: It could've used more details in the design too. This one is gone now.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 09, 2013, 08:18:04 PM
The Red Sash was just an oversize piece of cloth with a random logo on it. I would expect something better for such a legendary figure like Tokugawa Ieyasu.

The Ivory Hunting Horn was just a lame-looking horn. It was nothing special. It can go now.

The Silk Sash of Mulan was similar to the Red Sash, so it will be removed now as well.

The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra looks like a broken slinky. So it goes now.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 10, 2013, 12:03:21 AM
The Royal Torque had an interesting design, but for some reason looks way too cheesy. It doesn't even look like a necklace like it is suppose to be. It is gone now.

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 10, 2013, 12:07:53 AM
TRJ, Battle Flag was already eliminated by PPF on the same page. ;)

My next elimination goes to Plumed Headdress. Better than Enormous Feather with the colored feathers, but that's not saying much. Not at all interesting.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 10, 2013, 12:11:59 AM
Oops, didn't see the vote for that one. Probably because I was expecting the whole episode title spelled out. :P I replaced my vote with the Royal Torque though. ;)

We have 29 episodes left, almost to the top 25!

Next to go is the Levitating Dog Leash. It was a unique idea for an artifact, but the prop itself looked lame and came out of the dollar store. :roll:

The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacajawea looked pretty "authentic" but it was a torn up piece of cloth... did it even resemble a jacket? I think it is time for it to be removed from the list.

Yeah, Legends had a lot of uninteresting artifacts and we'll have some undeserving ones in the top 25. :o

Just missing the top 25 is Aurangzeb's turban. Just like Ahmed Baba's turban, it was just a turban. Nothing interesting about it.

The Blue Pearl can go next. It's just another ball object. Nothing special about it.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 11, 2013, 03:42:56 PM
The Metal Beard was a pretty unique artifact, but it makes me wonder who would keep their husband's facial hair as an artifact? It shall finish in spot #24.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 11, 2013, 04:14:18 PM
The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba is just some golden horse. It looks like one of those spare temple game pieces that you put in your bin. It goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 11, 2013, 05:42:20 PM
The Ruby Earring of Benzibab was just a fake earring inside a box. Nothing too appealing about that. It's off the list now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Bandit King on July 11, 2013, 10:00:11 PM
Why is the Much-Heralded Helmet still here? It was just a big, bulky, ugly knight's helmet.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on July 11, 2013, 10:05:03 PM
The Broken Wing of Icarus was a bunch of feathers glued to a piece of cardboard. I'm surprised it hadn't been removed earlier, so it will be removed now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread

Ivory Elephant looked boring
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 11, 2013, 10:42:09 PM
The Upside Down Compass of Henry Hudson is the most boring looking artifact left at this point. It goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 12, 2013, 12:28:35 AM
The Smashed Printing Plate was a giant piece of rock with random inscriptions on it. It was so boring compared to what's left, so it goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 12, 2013, 02:20:51 AM
The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein goes next. Not very interesting to look at.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on July 12, 2013, 07:35:00 AM
I'm not a huge fan of the Applewood Amulet. It was brown, tan, and shiny under the stage lights, so I could never really make out what it was supposed to be.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 12, 2013, 10:17:32 AM
The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun looked too similar to The Golden Cup of Belshazzar. Not interesting and I'm surprised it lasted this long. It's gone now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 12, 2013, 11:26:45 AM
The next artifact to go is the Iron Mask, finishing at spot #13. It was definitely a neat artifact and one of those ones you want to hear the legend about. But the way they positioned the mask made it way too dark to see the whole thing. Plus, it's not as detailed as the remaining artifacts...

#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein

Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 12, 2013, 03:14:19 PM
The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa takes the #12 spot. Just like with the Golden Stallion, it was just some golden animal. It looked nothing more like a temple game piece you put into your bin.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 12, 2013, 04:04:36 PM
The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta was just a bracelet with a lion's face on it. It was okay, but not the best artifact. It goes now.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 12, 2013, 04:50:50 PM
This is tough because all of these artifacts are great.  :o I think the Bullet-Riddled Handbag should start the top 10 list off. I like the design of the artifact and the details they put into it.   :mrgreen:  The name of the artifact is pretty cool also. But for some reason the design of the Handbag is a little unusual. It looks like one of those pouches that is suppose to carry medicine or powder. I think this is a good stoppoing point for it.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on July 12, 2013, 05:47:32 PM
The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak was an interesting title and a cool artifact. However, the fabric that the mussels were adhered to was a little awkward, and the mussels were not attached to it well. A few fell off when Gator crossed the Pit of the Pendulum. It will take position 9.

Remaining:
2x16 - The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2x17 - The Missing Eye of David
2x28 - The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
2x32 - The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
2x40 - The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl

3x37 - The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza
3x38 - The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
3x40 - The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great



The Top 25:
#9. The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak
#10. The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd
#11. The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
#12. The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein

Just wanted to point out that once we reach the final two artifacts, I will set up the poll to determine the winner. Since I will be at work until midnight just in case we reach that point. ;)

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 12, 2013, 06:58:00 PM
Probably the last vote I'll ever make in this thread.... The Two Cornered Hat of Napoleon gets the #8 spot. It was a very neat looking hat, but it's the least interesting to look at compared to what's left.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 12, 2013, 08:26:38 PM
Down goes The Missing Eye of David. This one was interesting, but this is a good stopping point for it.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 12, 2013, 09:58:53 PM
The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid goes next. It's so hard to choose now, but the artifacts were more higher quality.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Bandit King on July 12, 2013, 11:03:24 PM
This is a tough call, but I vote for The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl for position #5.  It was well-made and really did look like a work of halfway-decent art, but the fact that the girl in the painting had no top on kind of drives the creepiness factor through the roof, and detracts from the artifact's design.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 12, 2013, 11:29:06 PM
I hate to do this, but next to go is The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor. The idea of this artifact was interesting, but in the end, it's just a pillow.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 13, 2013, 12:36:19 AM
Missing the the final two is the Jewel-Encrusted Egg. It was definitely a beautifully designed artifact and one of the most creative on the show. It had some good details and definitely could be a contender for the best looking artifact. Compared to the remaining artifacts, an egg is kind of silly. But it was still awesome to look at.

And now we are at our final two! I will set up the details in the next post. ;)

3x37 - The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza
3x38 - The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie

The Top 25:
#3. The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
#4. The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
#5. The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl
#6. The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
#7. The Missing Eye of David
#8. The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
#9. The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak
#10. The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd
#11. The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
#12. The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
#17: The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass
#18: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson

I set the poll for 24 hours. You can change your votes between the 24 hour window, but the winner won't be decided until that is up. For reference, here is our final two artifacts.

The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza


The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie


May the best artifact win! I will reveal my vote once the poll closes. ;)

Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 13, 2013, 04:27:44 PM
I'm sure Season 4 would have some extremely detailed, very real looking artifacts. We'd probably see more jeweled/golden looking artifacts, much like what we saw on the last day of Season 3.
Title: Re: Best Legends Artifact Design Elimination Thread
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 14, 2013, 12:48:58 AM
And the results are in! It looks like our winner is the Good-Luck Watch!

I voted for the Good-Luck Watch as the best artifact on the show. Out of all the artifacts on the show, this is the one that looked the best IMO. The details of the Watch are beautifully designed. The producers did a really good job handling it. When I first heard about this episode, I thought the design would be lame. Plus, I have to give credit for the producers for using an actual clock for the Watch. I thought that the clock would be painted on, but I am glad that I was wrong. And I liked the heart-shaped design too.

The Jeweled Scabbard looked great also. I love the little bits of jewelry on it as well as the design of the Scabbard. Compared to the Watch though, it didn't have the best details.

I just want to say thanks to everyone who took their time to vote. I know the elimination threads aren't very popular anymore, but I thought if I did something totally different for once then it would get more feedback. And I am glad that many different people voted too instead of the same 3 people. This one was fun and the outcome was something different.  :mrred:

Here are the final results:

The Top 25:
#1. The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
#2. The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza
#3. The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
#4. The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
#5. The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl
#6. The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
#7. The Missing Eye of David
#8. The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
#9. The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak
#10. The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd
#11. The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
#12. The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
#17: The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass
#18: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson

I am going to try the personal rankings for this one.

The Top 25:
#1. The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie (Good, this is the one I wanted to win)
#2. The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza (One lower, I am not sure why I voted this over the Jewel-Encrusted Egg)
#3. The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great (One higher)
#4. The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor (One lower)
#5. The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl (One higher, love the detail of the Portrait even if the naked girl is creepy)
#6. The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid (Good, I like the details of the boots and are much better than the Moccasins of Geronimo)
#7. The Missing Eye of David (Good, this was very detailed and didn't look lame at all)
#8. The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon (Good, looked like a hat Napoleon would wear)
#9. The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak (Good)
#10. The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd (Good)
#11. The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta (A little lower, the Lion head looks a little lame)
#12. The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa (Good, even though this was a reused prop from the Golden Idols/Treasure Room. It still looked pretty neat)
#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask (A little lower. Interesting artifact, too dark to see)
#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun  (A little higher, I liked the details of it.)
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata (Good)
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein (Good, the frame of the Portrait was ugly and it was not even Holbein in the painting. The Priceless Portrait was much better)
#17: The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass (Much lower, it was so boring)
#18: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson (good)
#19: The Ivory Elephant of Scheherazade (good)
#20: The Broken Wing of Icarus (A little lower, it was just random feathers on a cardboard piece)
#21: The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain (Much higher. I liked the size of the Helmet and the details of it)
#22: The Ruby Earring of Benzibab (Good. Compared to the other artifacts that day, this one looked a little silly)
#23: The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba (Good, a golden horse is a weird choice to make an artifact)
#24: The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen (A little higher)
#25: The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl (A little higher. It was pretty detailed despite the small size)
