By the voters' choice: BlacktronvemberII finale winner! Thank you for participating!

This is one of the most important entries in Sur m'ale Gobros history for me -- a set I saw in the catalog and fell in love instantly, immediately writing a wishful note to the Little Star (think of it as a Santa equivalent), not understanding that I can't possibly get it since the catalog was couple of years old already.
Needless to say, this was not what I got for Christmas that year
Couple of months later, in a local haberdashery of all places, I saw a LEGO box on the top of the shelf -- it was a very old (colors from the box have had already vanished, leaving only blue) 6981 box. I can't recall if I told my mother that I want it and she dismissed it, or if I was so speechless that I didn't even mention it to her.
I never saw that box in that particular haberdashery again. Or any haberdashery, though.
Since we started Sur m'ale Gobros, I knew that this set has to receive a special treatment -- and here it is! (xulm)

Coincidentally, we both drew similar Blacktron II pieces at the same time (see Przemek's previous illustration)
Since we drew three Blacktron II sets this month already, let's retroactively call this November a Blacktronvember II -- be sure to see the final illustration next week!
PS: And since we have still more than one Blacktron II set to go, you can vote for the Blacktronvember II finale set in the comments!
