Couldn't make Comic Con this year? Dry your eyes, for you are life, and you have a chance to take home a little piece of the magic thanks to our friends at Hasbro and NECA.
We have three prizes to hand out, and they're all items you're unlikely to find anywhere else at any kind of reasonable price. First, a massive 5-pack of Marvel Legends Thunderbolts, featuring Luke Cage, Ghost, Crossbones, Moonstone, Judith Chambers, and way less clothing on the female figures than major retailers will allow.
Second, a set of Transformers Titan Guardians. Optimus, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Grimlock don't transfrom, but they come styled to look exactly like their '80s animated appearances. (Please note: the box for this took a minor beating in transit and shows visible wear, but the figures are fine. And free, dammit.)
Finally, one of last year's exclusives: NECA's Evil Dead 2 "Hero From the Sky" Ash, autographed by NECA main man Randy Falk. This version of The Chin has a bleached-out color scheme and rock base.
To enter, tell me how much you adore me. Just kidding; that would be an awfully sadistic way to toy with you all. And creepy, in the long run.
Here's the real way to enter:
In comments below, tell me either your best or worst experience at Comic Con or an event like it. If you've never been to any such event, tell me how you imagine them to be, or describe a best/worst event you experienced in any kind of crowd.
Also, please specify, if you could choose, what your first, second and third choice prize would be. I don't promise to honor all first choices, but I'll do my best. To be clear - there will be THREE winners, of one exclusive each.
You can enter as often as you wish, but quality beats quantity every time. I'm going to keep this contest open a bit longer than usual, to allow for people who may try and get these at the show to have a second chance - the end date will be July 31st at 11:59 p.m.
Contest is open to non-U.S. residents, but depending how "non," you may be responsible for shipping costs only.
