Today we present the final entries we received in our contest where we asked you to imagine how LEGO® designer and AFOL Mark Stafford might kill off Teal again, now that this colour is back in the LEGO palette once more. Missed the previous entries? See them here.
By Ralf LangerA rather unobtrusive way :-)

Rumors say that the killing of teal was only a huge cover-up and that the parts are hidden somewhere...
What do you mean this color makes me look fat?
By Reese HawthorneAh, that age old question: "does this dress make me look fat?" Unfortunately, Mark Stafford has given the wrong answer and once again doomed teal...
This was just a funny idea I thought up when I saw the contest, and thankfully I was able to find the time to put it into stud.io. Thanks for putting on the contest, and let's hope Mark Stafford doesn't actually kill teal again!
Taking things literally...
By Igor R...often allows you to see the essence!
Don't do it, kids.
The Chopping Block
By Colby OstrinChopping the blocks...literally!
Zombie Teal: Back from the Dead
By Miro DudasTeal was killed once before and it's back from the dead, this time as a zombie teal color. Can it be killed yet again?
Depicted in a BrickHeadz zombie figure format. Digital entry, because teal zombies have not showed up at my door...yet.
His mom doesn't like stepping on a Lego
By Simon GebraadThe final nail in the coffin for teal was when Mark's mom stepped on some teal bricks laying on the floor. Saving them from the VACUUM OF DEATH was impossible. And thus, the story of teal ended.
Death by Additive Colors
By Joseph GrysbanWhen I heard "kill teal", I, being very logically minded, thought: "Killing a color is taking the color out of it". So that's what I did. I took teal and purple (yes, the color that Mark chose) and mixed them to kill them both! Sand blue is what they make. Personally, I'd rather have that than either teal or purple. :)
