Dinosaur toy forum diorama contest 2015 - poll
« on: September 28, 2015, 07:50:17 PM »


Voting for the Dinosaur Toy Forum Diorama Contest 2015, sponsored by CollectA, is now open!

Once again congratulations are in order to all the participants. We've really outdone ourselves this year with a whopping 65 dioramas, making this the biggest contest to date. Many thanks to each and every one of the participants! Thanks also to everyone who takes the time to vote. Finally, thanks to our very kind sponsor, CollectA, who have provided some brilliant prizes.

The poll will run for 30 days and you can vote for your top ten [10] entries. This is more than previous contests because there are so many more dioramas to choose from. Also, I've included one more option than necessary so that each voter can vote for themselves if they participated a diorama. This isn't mandatory, but I recommend voting for yourself to level the playing field, so please do. Take your time when voting because once you've selected your dioramas, they can't be changed later.

The entries will remain anonymous throughout the voting process, so please don't give the game away: no hints, clues, or discussion about who dioramas might belong to. Also, please don't discuss which dioramas you voted for until after the poll closes. Otherwise, general discussion of the entries is more than welcome!

The forum rules and details of how the prizes will be allocated are here: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=3359.0

So, let's get down to it, the 'dinoramas' are as follows (This is obviously an image-heavy post so please allow time for all the pictures to download):

1. Velociraptor rampage


2. The Little Red Riding Hood and Mr. Allosaurus


3. Flight or fancy?

8. Uninvited guests

12. Beyond coma and despair (countless days without water)


13. Sushi!


14. Something wicked this way comes


15. Strategizing

They're not toys, they are someone's original creation (can't say who because the entries are anonymous).

Another great year with tough choices  ^-^
It's interesting to see how ubiquitous the Papo carnotaurus has become in the contest over the last year or so.

Optimistically I do see my submission in top 10, pessimistically, I don't see it out of top 20, realistically, I would be happy if it makes it to top 15.

There are some great pieces. :)

Last year I got 2 votes (and 1 was mine)  :'(
I'll be soooo happy if I get 3 or more this year.  ^-^


No offense but I prefer not to vote for the ones that use Non toys. Feel its unfair because not everyone has access (or money to buy) sculps. The same with completely custom figures. I'm perfectly fine with the customised (reposed and/or repainted) ones.
I'm just sharing my thoughts.

...and the CollectA dead Triceratops. Strange how the Stegosaurus hasn't been used as heavily.

A lot of great entries here. It will be tough to vote but I think I've got it narrowed down. I'll have to scroll through them a few more times.

Wow, I expected 10 to seem like a lot, but now I don't see how one is supposed to narrow it down to that… I may have to take a few days.

I voted too. I have to say that I am surprised that this year's entries do not include a "mass/herd" shot (I am specifically thinking of the pictures that won the past 2 contests).

I think that, for the first time, we may actually have a close race between the finalists instead of a runaway winner as has been the case the past 3 years.

Ooooh its interesting!  Everybody remember to vote!!

I can understand your point of view, but on this forum are very talented people and you don't know if the figures you see are made for the authors of the entries or if they buy it. I think the variety and originality have to be rewarded if there is a good craftsmanship behind.
