The winner of the final Kotaku ‘Shop Contest of 2015 took everything we loved about the original ‘Shop Contests and combined them into one highly derivative yet incredibly entertaining image. Congratulations, J.J. Abrams!

Oh wait, sorry. Got mixed up. Congratulations Ginger Snap, who could be J.J. Abrams for all we know, though it’s highly unlikely. Not only did Ginger Snap combine elements from each of the five contests linked in the year-end post, they also added Monster Energy, New Ken, That’s No Moon Head, Bowser, Mad Max getting a new jacket and the Nvidia Shield, which looks like it’s about to be taken down by an angry teddy bear.

Before we get into the runners-up for the grand finale of the 2014 ‘Shop Contests, I weant to give a special shout-out to Flawed Logic, who created a similar image but put hair on my head, which is unnatural and wrong.
