For several months, Hasbro has been running a diorama contest where fans recreate their favorite moments from the Star Wars movies using action figures.  Today, the company announced the winner, and it’s a great piece of work, depicting many fans favorite movie moment.

Hasbro’s excited to announce that the Grand Prize Winner of the 2009 STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS DIORAMA CONTEST is Craig Boyse, from Clio, Michigan!  Craig’s entry, “Captain Solo Awaiting His Fate In The Carbon Freezing Chamber,” was also selected the Fans’ Choice winner, via voting, giving him undisputed bragging rights throughout the galaxy.   The entry will be displayed at the next Star Wars Celebration.

“I really like Star Wars and I’m a creative guy, so this diorama contest was perfect for me.  Hasbro and Star Wars together — it really piqued my interest,” explained Craig Boyse, winner of Hasbro’s 2009 STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS DIORAMA CONTEST.  “I was basically living in the Star Wars universe for a month — I watched the movie and studied the source material over again, but I was surrounding myself with my favorite thing; it was like being a Star Wars extra. It was hard work, but a lot of fun! “
