This duel was for me personal a lot of fun, most of the time the votes were 50-50!
Paul his mafia did a good job, and I must say this idea was fun to, hope to hear more about it.
Dracula was mine, and I had this idea in my head from the day I bought this figure.
Thanks Paul for dueling, It was a lot of fun!

Great duel mates :thumbup: Love the idea of bedtime, and I have my own explenation of this duel :mrgreen:

The original setup of this duel was: "how do you think that your opponent goes to sleep?" Well now we know what you think about eachother :tongue:

And the Mario crossword is............ (my account number can be get by PM :mrgreen: )

:lol: :joker:

PS: you can still vote, like I did just now ;-)

To be honest I didn´t get the crossword riddle....and I haven´t seen "The Godfather". I do not like Mafia-Films...but it looked great. I only managed to identify the framed painting: "Der arme Poet" (the poor poet) by Carl Spitzweg. Great painter in the time of German "Biedermeier"-period.

...so Remco got my voice for his splendid "Vampyr".....though he made two mistakes....this photo looks as it is taken in morning light. So Mr. Dracula would become dust immediately. The other mistake: He would not have a Christian cross on his sleeping room window. OK, perhaps he is not a real Vampire and only a Hollywood actor. But nevertheless....a great and fun duell. Congrats to both of you! :-) :thumbup:

This was a great duel, and I had trouble deciding how to vote. And I really loved Paul's entry so he got my vote. Sorry Remco, do I have to hire armed guards now?

Well done Thomas for getting that, "Der arme Poet" (the poor poet) by Carl Spitzweg, it was part of my sillyness to include it..a sort of addition to the "sleeps with the fishes" :-)
I cut the picture out from a stamp...the furniture, lamp, pictureframe, cupboard, bed and fishes .....self made. The bod is from the Airfix Robinhood set..http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=35 ,second row, second from the left.
