« on: August 03, 2016, 11:22:33 PM »
Voting for the Dinosaur Toy Forum Diorama Contest 2016 is now open!

Thanks to all the entrants! Thanks to Stargatedalek for compiling the entries.

The poll will run for 30 days and you can vote for your top eight [8] entries. Voting for oneself is allowed. 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 'dinoramas' are as follows (this is obviously an image-heavy post so please allow time for all the pictures to download):

1. A beautiful day in the Cloverly


2. Alone on the beach


3. An Old English Fisherman


4. Can this mother Spinosaurus defend her kill and offspring from this vicious Carcharodontosaurus


5. Caught one!


6. Don't breathe


7. Donít make me wait for you

I thought it would be easier to decide with fewer entries. So many good ones this year.

Thx to the hosts aswell.... and heck, I wanna make a decision, but I wrote all favs down and.... well, there's too many for eight votes :D

.... and another "aww", no discussion?! Sure, you're right about it, but I so wanna know the origin of one of the figures shown... (/switchestocalmmodeforanother30days)

Reading the topic once more I recognize that discussion isn't entirely "forbidden" and while the answer to my curiosity will sure have to wait until the poll is over, I have another point....

I really appreciate the variety of ideas and figures shown, just spotted one figure appearing in two dioramas. That does not in any way substrat from the dioramas' quality, just I wouldn't have been surprised about several high rated figures appearing more often :)

I didn't entire this year but I recognize most of the figures, can't hurt to ask.

Some of them I absolutely can't tell you though.

Well then, the figure in picture 17, is it custom or a regular toy figure? :)

Great Diorama's this year.  Every one of them look good and you can feel the energy that was put into the diorama pictures.  Made my choices, now the hard part of waiting to see who wins.

I was wondering that too - it may be a custom-made figure sculpted from scratch.  It just doesn't look at all familiar ....
