SW vignette contest results

Voting is finished at the FBTB Star Wars vignette contest. It was very close, but the winner is Dennis Coh, with his Vader's hunt for the stolen plans.

Dennis writes: "I was originally planning on just building Darth Vader's entrance, since Darth Vader has been one of my favorite characters since childhood, and this scene is one that I loved the most (well, there's also the following scene where he chokes the rebel...). After going through the scene many times to pick out the details from the movie, the idea popped in my head to combine this with the Leia+R2(+3P0) scene to try to convey the entire story sequence. The tricky part was to build this such that the whole thing didn't look like two vigs slapped together. So I tried to build both the top and bottom with the same Tantive IV hallway styling, and I also attempted to give the whole thing an interesting overall shape so that the vig didn't look like a giant block. The whole thing took about 2 weeks to figure out what I was going to build, a full day to build and revise the details, and several hours to do the pics."

Coming in second by only a couple of votes was Jared Burks' Intimate stolen moments

These, and all of the finalists were all wonderful, and really any of them could have won. Congratulations to Dennis, Jared and the other finalists. Thanks to all of the entrants and to FBTB for hosting such a fun contest. Be sure to check out all of the entries for a lot of great creations (except that Tusken Ambush one - that's a real stinker).
