Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Star Wars The Next Generation: The Winners!

Seven days ago on a website right about here somewhere, our Photoshop-savvy readers were tasked with bringing together new Star Wars actors and classic Star Wars settings (more or less). While the brave waxinmyhead claims the prize, there are about 20 others.

This was a really close one, folks. I spent a couple of hours worrying over whether to pick waxinmyhead's Jedi council, or Ginger Snap's Boondock Saints mash-up (see below), but in the end I had to stick with the theme. At least that's what helps me get to sleep at night.

Either way, all of our entrants did an outstanding job, and they all deserve medals, as long as they aren't Wookies.
