Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Blizzard Hits the Street Winners

Blizzard's cofounders paid a visit to Wall Street earlier this month, providing us with a very exploitable image for the latest 'shop contest. See who really runs the U.S. financial system in our gallery of 20!

We had a number of particularly strong entries this week. At least 20, by my count. Matching Frank and Mike's expressions with scenes from film and TV yielded solid results, as Cleesox (3), and explevel (2, outstanding job) demonstrated.

Others were more subtle. CoreyandTrevor (4) did a hair swap. Jimmy_Jazz (10) kept his eyes on the Starcraft commodities market (upper big board). obeyyurmaster (15) and Prof.Gast (16) went monochrome old school and served up huge laughs courtesy of the Three Stooges and JFK.

I don't know why I laughed so hard at Monte2's Millennium Falcon shop (14). Then psykofaze (17) came in behind him with another knee-slapper.

FelliniZucchini's (8) DragonBall Z 'shop was a crowd favorite. Likewise Gio-Dude's superb riff on Kane & Lynch. My personal favorite was among the first entries, however: CptScrotes' (5) swap of Frank Pearce for Dr. Robotnik. Perfect posture, perfect execution.

Congrats to everyone who made the roundup, and thanks to all who contributed to a high quality 'Shop Contest. We'll see you back in here tomorrow.
