Combo Contest #3 Results

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Necks and Eye Glasses seemed to be the trend this time around. We also saw an increase in creative photography with all the great apps that are available at our fingertips nowadays. And we found it a bit surprising that not many Park Starz or switched feet were used. As always, it was so much fun going through all the entries ans we appreciate you taking the time to participate. As with the previous contest, we developed a few categories in order to acknowledge and award as many entries as we could. This year, the categories are: Best Group, Best Word Play, Best Story, and Editor’s Choice. One of the category winners was then named best of show and will receive a 9″ Urban Series Boxer and 9″ Park Series Main Street Electrical Parade. The other category winners will also be rewarded with a Vinylmation. Ok, it’s time to announce the Winners of Combo Contest #3! (click any pictures for larger view)

“For the second year in a row, after looking through the entries separately, MC and I both had the same one at the top of our lists. A great representation of Magritte’s painting “Son of Man” and it just has that “wow” factor when you first see it.” – Nick

Head: Apple (Cutesters 1)
Body: Abe Lincoln (Park 6)
Hat: Bowler Hat Guy (Villains 2)
