Okay, so here I am, ready to bring you the long-awaited photos of the dioramas on display at ToyLanta, which happened three weeks ago, and the internet gremlins have decided to bedevil my blogger interface. My eyes are doing much better, and I’ve slowly been editing this images for the past couple of weeks, and now I’m going to have to dole them out a few at a time.
To make a long story short (and a photo story serialized), the layout of PopCult started going nuts every time I try to post more than ten photos in one post. It worked fine last week, but this week, not so much. So, since I have so many photos, I’m going to be divvying them up into at least four posts. And I’m going to be stretching those out over the next three or four days. You probably won’t see part two until later in the day on Saturday, and then rest will be posted Sunday and Monday, so you have bonus content to look forward to going into next week!
Today we’re going to look at winners of the custom figure, diorama and vehicle contests. In a later post or two we will bring you the rest of the contest entries, and then we’ll wrap up with the featured dioramas and displays by Mike Gardner, Steve Bugg and the displays from Clay Sayre. I also want to note that a few of the photos have been previously posted to Facebook by Dave Matteson. Dave adminstered the contests, and in many cases, he had much better photos of the figures than I did, because my hands were a bit shaky from Myasthenia Gravis. So thanks, Dave, for all the help getting the list of winners, and for the pictures I swiped.
Today, though, we focus on the contest winners. Like Jack Hall’s first-place figures, The Banana Splits, as seen at the head of this post, with more photos below.
Okay, we want to cogratulate the winners. We have much more to bring you, but we’ve hit our limit of ten photos for this post. Check PopCult over the weekend for more posts, along with all our regular features, as we prepare to enter a new month, with loads more new pop culture news, reviews and stories for our loyal readers.
