I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries For a while we thought that no one was going to enter our Space Marine competition. Then, hours before the competition closed, we received a wave of some of the most amazing entries we’ve ever seen in any competition run on Kotaku. Here are a few entries that missed out on the top prize, but we thought they were still awesome enough that they had to be shared.

The image above is the chainsword submitted by Palstran. Kudos to him for thinking outside the square and turning a household chair into a very dangerous thing. We hope no one sat on it afterwards, Palstran. (Although if someone did, please tell us about it.)

Next up we have Lambomann, who showed us a few practical uses for his chainsword. Someone should tell him that he has shown us three things that can be done with a chainsword, not 101. I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Adam G made a chainsword that looks like it could really hurt us. Danny and I were scratching our heads as to what this thing is actually made of. We still don’t know. I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Adam M (we actually received quite a few entries from different Adams…) sent in the kind of chainsword that you could probably use to use to hit someone with. If I’m not mistaken, it IS a cushioned chainsword, right? The blue bits looks kind of soft. Because if it isn’t then I retract everything I’ve just said. I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

BatGuy went down a different path and made this sword of awesome. Those poor Pikachu, they don’t stand a chance. 🙁 I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Lambomann’s brother also submitted an entry! This looks like a food of some sort, but again we can’t actually tell if it’s cake or biscuit or shortbread or crumbs. Also, we don’t actually know Lambomann’s brother’s name, so we’ll just keep on referring to him as Lambomann’s brother until someone corrects us. I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Lobo’s chainsword comes with a motor thing! That is pretty neat. I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

We almost want to give Lukas a prize just for his sheer enthusiasm in this photo. Man, we wish we could jump that high. I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Luke S, I can only assume you either have the most amazing collection of nerdy items in your house or you took this chainsword out to a shop. In either case, kudos to you! I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Morgan’s entry made us lol the hardest — forks in a chainsword — genius! Speaking of which, we were wondering where all our forks went… I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Neon Jackal created a Wii peripheral we’ve never seen before. You should get that patented, dude. Nintendo are gonna read this post and get even richer off your ideas! I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Sylok and Epherius worked together on this awesome sword that comes complete with a motor and wiring so that the chain actually moves. They assure us it worked during testing and then borked when it came to filming. I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

And the last of our finalists who just missed out is The Cracks! That. Thing. Is. Huge. (Pre-emptive “That’s what she said” joke.) I Am A Space Marine – Here Are The Entries

Thank you for your entries, everyone! At 4pm today we’ll be posting our top seven entries — six will receive a runners-up prize that we just secured from THQ (literally this morning!), and one will win the ultimate prize: the THQ Space Marine chainsword. Check back then!
