time for another diorama contest?
« on: May 12, 2015, 04:30:19 AM »

mods, I thought I would post this here first to garner more attention, but feel free to move it as you see fit.

In the spirit of the new movie, I thought it might be time for another contest (older members will remember the one I did a few years ago and the jaw-drooping creations everyone did).

My thinking is to have a bunch of cool prizes (including a gentle giant statue, a Sideshow 1/6 figure, exclusive / hard to find figures, and more) and have a prize awarded to everyone who participates (I only ask that you pay the shipping cost).

This time I am thinking every snowtrooper member will cast a vote for their favourites.

I would like at least 10 people to participate, but obviously the more the merrier.

Thoughts?

Are there 10 of us still here?

I'd be in for sure!

Maybe entries could be publicly shared for the voting process on Facebook or other social media via 501st or other groups to garner interest in snowtroopers.ca

I have never built a diorama before, but it might be fun to try. Would this be for Hasbro figures only?

I'd be in, timeframe dependent (super busy right now, but hoping things lighten up a bit over the summer). I've been meaning to tackle a "real" diorama.

I think we'd need a longer timeframe than what was used last time, since I recall that as the original deadline got close, there were still many(?) who hadn't found the time to get much progress done on their dioramas.  I was thinking about entering myself too, but knew I wasn't going to realistically meet the deadline.

Photos could be linked the Snowtroopers.ca Facebook group where "likes" could equal votes. Since the system is already in place, it might work easily.

I am cool with whatever works in terms of tracking votes etc. Of course those participating can't vote, but I want to open it up to everyone else.

I also like the idea of attracting some new blood to our little group.

In terms of timeframes, I was thinking mid-August as a deadline. That should give everyone plenty of time.

Some other cool prizes could be designer star wars t-shirts and sweaters (heck maybe even a jacket) and of course all are brand new with tags.

I am hoping for at least 10 people to give this a go, hopefully more. Let's spread the word and see where we stand (in terms of confirmed participants) by the end of May.

Hi Sanjay,
I would be ready to give it a try.

Any further plans for this? Summer is a good time to get working on a diorama!

Will their be a theme (i.e.: Han Solo's bachelor party)?
Restrictions on size (i.e.: no larger than a 36" x 36" footprint)?
Restrictions on class of figures (i.e.: 3 3/4", 6", Lego, 1/6 scale)?

I am open to any/everything - just no photoshop.

Ok, I think this is the list so far:

Darth Mink
Hellboy
jmac
wedge1021
oldmanben
white elephant
napseeker

so 7 so far...did I miss anyone?

to reiterate, everyone who enters will get a cool prize, so the more the merrier...I am hoping we can have at least 10 contestants.

Add me to the list. Not sure what I am going to do, but I'll give it a shot. :)

Count me in! That's 8 now!  ;D

I'll do my best to meet the deadline, but would suggest the deadline to be the end of August, as summer is usually fairly busy with family meetings, vacations... and work. Yeah, I get only 2-3 weeks of vacations during the summer...  :-\

And can we simply choose our own diorama? I don't have much time to work on my own Star Wars dioramas, so would much rather prefer to work on something of my choosing that I'll be able to fit in my collection. In fact, to be quite frank, my participation may depend on the diorama theme...
