I thought it [Star Wars] was too wacky for the general public.

Just a thought - I'm going to try & provide links to the entry thread for each contestant in the first post. So far though, I only have two entries - those being Old Man Ben's Ewok village and CC's Clone Scene. Is this right?

Hey,

I've been painting vehicles, making custom figs and trying to figure out a scene since I first read of this contest a couple weeks back. I'll definitely have something in by deadline.

I have to say that I am really, really impressed with the exhibition of artistry and imagination that I am seeing in the dioramas so far.  It's taking the collection of Star Wars figures to the next level!  I hope this instills a new challenge amongst all the snowtroopers to make better use of their collections, and display the pieces they own to their fullest advantage.  I also hope that we will be able to do this on a much bigger scale some time in the near future!  The more entries we see, the higher the bar gets pushed for the next contest.

Yeah, personally I've always been a "deadline" kinda guy. And I've had diorama ideas for a few years now but never pushed it beyond throwing a few props onto my shelves to mix in with the figures. I really feel this contest has given me the creativity bug and thank snowtroopers for lighting that fire under my derriere! ;) I'm thinking of making a real wood Ewok village for my kids for Xmas now! Not sure how it will fit down the chimney but I'll make it work! :speechless-smiley-004:

I think that is a great idea ambasah. I had so much fun working on mine. It made me want to design and build more.

all the submissions are in and I do not envy the judges. Thank you to everyone who contributed to my little contest - you guys all blew me away! I am definately going to do this again next year. It's too early now, but I will be looking for suggestions on how to make the contest "better" for contestants. I am thinking of raising the picture limit to 5 and will be open to other suggestions.

Thanks again to everyone and let the judging begin!

Well thank you Sanjai for sponsoring this contest... this has been a great treat to see all these dioramas from fellow troopers.  Glad I didn't have time to participate this year, as some of these settings are really mindblowingly good (I'm looking at you battle of Hoth!!!)

I do hope this becomes an annual thing because I'd love to participate next time around  :party0053:  And yeah, let's allow more photos next time so we can really appreciate the hard work that goes into these setups.  :love0030:

Yes, thanks, Sanjai! Your generosity has inspired members of this site to be creative and involved.

I had fun and now that I've experienced all that goes into building a diorama I'll be much more prepared next time (gonna have to clean out the garage). I had no idea this site had so many talented builders and the bar has been raised pretty high.

Thanks again for sponsoring the challenge.  :)`
