It's been great to see all the creative dioramas. Good job to everyone. Due to significant time constraints, I have not been able to build a dio. for this contest, even though I fully planned to participate. So... Bummer for me, kudos to you all. I hope to jump back in for this next contest.



That's too bad. Hopefully next time. What was your dio going to be?

I'd like to thank you for being the only person to actually comment on any of my dioramas. I appreciated it.

JediPatrick - sorry to hear about the cancer woes. My sympathies to your family.


Thanks! My wife was handling her treatment very nicely this week, last week was a real nightmare as she was feeling tired all week long. But today, she had a very bad case of nausea, so I guess she had a 5-6 days of break. The mix of radiotherapy and chemotherapy is very tough for most patients. :/

But when it seems things couldn't go worse, they did yesterday morning: I lost my job. LOL Got fired due to a restructuration. I was the only income in the family, so it'll be tough. At least I received a compensation package, it will help go through the next 4-5 months, but past that I'll really need to start looking for a new job now... :cry:

When I saw the first teaser for Rogue One, I've focused on the scene where the captured Rebel pilots are led through the marketplace. Here's my interpretation.

Had fun with this competition. Once it's over, I will post some pix of other dioramas I've created.

Wow. :( I'll be keeping you and your family in my thoughts as you go through this difficult time.

Nice job on the trailer scene OC.

Sorry to hear about the job as well JediPatrick - when it rains, it pours (at least sometimes) - as the saying goes. Will pray for your family during this time.

Utinniii, thanks for the response. I am working on an archaeological dig site and on a forest environment. I will still get them done some day, just not in the next little while (will probably have to wait until after Christmas).

LOL Yeah, I know. I'll be back on my feet in no time, no worry. It's just a little funny that everything happens at the same time. My wife and I (really) laughed at it. Reaching the bottom can only mean one thing: the next move is to go up. That's the optimistic in me talking. Now I need to put my Jedi act together and start being mindful of the here and now. :P :lol:

I've been there. The next couple of years might be rough, but it will get better. You also have an awesome positive attitude.

Nice marketplace! You now have a great place to display the next figures.

We absolutely don't have to count this as an entry, but here was the potential staging for my Yavin/ROTJ diorama. I had intended to do a grey flooring, and the stone backdrop. I simply didn't have time to do it. :(

Most of those figures and stuff would get robbed for my photonovel anyway, but at least this made them displayable.

Thanks. I intend to put some RO figures in it.


Really like the marketplace idea! Adding the Rogue One figures (especially when Jyn and the gang will be available at Walmart in super articulated format) will definitely be a nice picture! Can't wait to see this movie! :-)

3 - Utinniii


A big thanks to Yak_Jayson for the prizes... below are the goodies to choose from... you each get ONE of the below 6" TBS figures.

Jedi Patrick, you should post in this thread which figure you want first.
Then Kovecs96, you post in this thread which figure you want.
The remaining figure goes to Utinniii.

NOTE - Please send a PM to me with your shipping details. We will be shipping your prizes sometime in the next 30 or so days. Anyone who does not select their prize within 30 days has their turn skipped.
