Okay, we’re still running a little behind due to some technical issues here at PopCult, but I think some of the bugs are worked out, and I’m going to try to wrap this extended photo essay up with just this and one more installment. Keep your fingers crossed that the photos don’t squoosh out and wind up all over the blog page.

ToyLanta 2019 took place in Atlanta earlier this month, and one of the highlights, as always, was the amazing talent on display in the custom figure, vehicle and diorama contests. Today, with some explanation in the captions, are more of the entries.  You can see some of fhe winners in part one of this photo essay. You can also see video, which captured more entries than I did with still images HERE.

Again, special thanks to Dave “Tanker” Matteson, for running the contests and letting me swipe a few of his photos for this essay.

Monday afternoon we’ll post photos of the featured dioramas by Mike Gardner and Steve Bugg, plus some additional non-competition displays.

An overhead shot of the second-place diorama winner, Ronnie White’s “Iron Giant.” You also see it at the head of this post, and below.

Another look at this lovely, compact diorama.

Mark McGinnis took third place in the figure competition with this custom Jack Wormer.

“Fraternization” was the third-place diorama by Bob Welch

The rest of the photos are presented mostly without captions, and with apologies for the fuzziness of your PopCulteer’s photography I promise that next year I’ll do a better job with these…














Monday afternoon we’ll bring you more photos of the featured dioramas.
