JUDGES' PICK WINNER AND VOTE FOR YOUR FAV FINALISTS

And the JUDGES' PICK WINNER for TOYSREVIL's I Like Toys x Atomic Mushroom Toys' COMBAT-R-ZERO FAN ART CONTEST by unanimous decision is Anton Dirkin! (click image to view bigger)

Anton mentions in his initial submission: "Regardless of the outcome I have enjoyed going back to my own childhood memories to when I dreamed about Gigantor and the like, many years ago. That is the basis of this art work." ... the overall raw charm of this piece just cannot be denied, and won over both Judges! Congratulations, Anton!

Anton wins a Superset of 5 Combat-R-Zero vinyl figures (including the GID-"Plutonium" variant) - courtesy of AtomicMushroomToys!

As for the initial-mentioned "4 Finalists" for Public Voting ... well, let's just say our decisions weren't as unanimous, and after careful deliberations, we have instead 6 FINALISTS that we need your help to choose by voting for - to win 2ND, 3RD, 4TH and 5TH-Place!
