Final Fantasy VII diorama dude Luis is back. And this time he's brought an actual arcade-themed diorama with him. Good for him. Good for us. Here's Luis:

Hi, guys it's me Luis again and since my FFVII diorama did not qualify for the contest I decided to make another one this time based on Street Fighter Alpha 2 which is an arcade game. I hope there are not entry limits. For this one I decided to recreate my favorite stage. This one was a pain, a lot of micro cutting. For a moment I thought my vacation was not going to be productive.

Oh, it was, Luis, it was. Likewise, Kotakuite Mint has been productive, sending along the diorama below.

It's a scene from Marvel vs Capcom 2 with Shuma and Amingo, and the loudest backround I could find. I totally should have spent the time studying for my Anthropology final tomorrow, but yeah, I didn't. I figure I can take ANTHRO 102 anytime, but a diorama contest over at Kotaku just don't come as often as I'd like them to!

P.S: I'm happy to say that Shuma is made with 100 percent recycled index cards. Amingo not so much..!

This Rampage diorama comes from James from Hawaii.

Says James:

I never appreciated my xacto knife more than when I was cutting the outlines of George and Lizzy out of the postcards I drew them on. I based my diorama on Rampage since it was one of my favorite arcade games as a kid and my sister and I would play it endlessly. I don't recall Lizzy ever having a Godzilla-like atomic breath attack (or looking so much like the offspring of Reptar and a kangaroo) but it was something I always wanted to see.

The buildings are game pieces from the CMG "Monsterpocalypse", a tabletop game that is essentially the equivalent of Rampage.

It was a tough choice choosing which game to make a diorama of since I played so many as a kid when arcades were all over the place... Pole Position II, The Simpsons, Tumblepop, X-Men... but I ended up back on Rampage each time. Ralph is probably locked in a cage somewhere... my sister and I never picked him. Sorry buddy.

Thanks James! And finally, we've got an entry from Kotakuite Chesu: Ban-Hammer-Bird-Shirt-Crecente. Just look at that background! Amazing stuff.

What's going on? For this contest, you can use anything you like to create your diorama: paper, toys, whatever. All we ask is that you made an arcade-themed diorama and include a Kotaku and Arcade Mania sign so that we know you made it and not your dog or something.

Take a picture and send it to kotakucontestATgmailDOTcom. There will be three winners, and all will win a copy (it's in English!) of Arcade Mania straight from Japan. Everyone else will get INTERNET FAME. Remember, the contest deadline is tonight at midnight PST. That's soonish so procrastinators have a wee-bit of time still left!

Silly rabbits.

Those boobs are from Final Fight, during the boss fight with Rolento, who Mr. Crecente seems to have killed off with his holy locks (or ban-hammer)
