View Full Version : Monthly Prizes - yes, win stuff for posting your opinions



griffin
24th January 2013, 01:28 AM
As an incentive to post up your opinions on the monthly themes/series, I'm offering up free stuff... most of which I've bought over the years for competitions, but just never gotten around to organising something to get rid of them.
As such, I have quite a few items to give away, but first, the details on how this works.

Each month there will be (5) discussion topics for people to post up their opinions...
- The Toys
- The Cartoon
- The Comic
- The Characters
- Your best of the best

Each person that posts at least once in each of those five discussion topics (the poll topic doesn't count - but please vote in it while you are here), will earn an entry to that month's competition.
This means a maximum of five entries per month.

I will do up a list of the people who have posted in each of those five discussion topics, which will be your number. After the month is over, I will pick numbers at random from random.org (the number I draw will match the amount of prizes that month).
The first person drawn has first choice at the prizes on offer for that month, and then the second person chooses, and so on.

For example, in January there are two items up for grabs - UK Comic compilation from Titan (Gen1 story - Dinobot Hunt), and Art Asylum Starscream bust. If you are drawn first, you get to choose first from those two items.

If you don't reply within a week with your choice, I'll give the next person first choice, and you get whatever is left. And if you don't reply within a month to claim your prize, I will draw someone else.


PLUS, there will be bonus items on offer that are up for grabs (stuff that no one will probably want, but I don't have the heart to throw them away).
The following items are for the any prize winners who wants them (limit one per person).
- Beast Wars Season 1 & 2 on Australian VHS
- Gen1 episode on Australian VHS (Fight or Flee)
- TFPrime episode on US DVD (Loose Cannons from Season 2)
- TF Armada episode on CD (Awakening)
- TF Armada episode on CD (Awakening)

Conditions or prizes may change if unexpected circumstances require it.

HOLY CRAP! :eek:

Congratulations Megatron, I don't know about you mate but I never fathomed that I'd win anything - I never win anything!, just ask 1AZRAEL!! :D

Hehe, awesome... I'll have to definitely go with the Titan Books G1 Marvel UK Trade if I may please as that'll complete my collection, as previously mentioned, but it'll also mean I can actually go ahead & start reading the UK run! :cool:
(I've held off until I could obtain 'Dinobot Hunt', I know I'm weird :p)


Many thanks to Griffin for this opportunity & putting together these sorts of things for us, I know it takes some time to organise & I appreciate it. ;):)

Best of luck to everyone entering February's comp! :cool:

Yes!!!!! :D Congrats Hursti for winning this month's competition and for selecting the tpb. :p I was really hoping to win but I didn't think I actually would. This came as quite a surprise - still can't believe I won (even though I came second it's still very much a win/win as I still get to select the prize I wanted!). What makes it really sweet for me is that the bust has been on my Want List and I have been watching it on eBay for months... so yes, winning something is always cool, but winning something you would really love to have is the best feeling of all.

Thanks so much to griffin, you are very generous indeed and believe me this does not go unappreciated!

Good luck to next month's winners. :) And now, for my selection... :D

:cool: The Starscream bust, please. :cool:

Winners for February are GoktimusPrime and Kalel.

PLUS A BONUS PRIZE...

Out of the people who did a decent review of a toy/comic/cartoon, Gouki was chosen for a mystery prize.
BUT.... Gouki has to post here by the end of Friday (15th) if he wants the mystery prize (in the box), OR, go with the Kreo Jazz.

http://www.toycollectors.com.au/calendar/mystery01.jpg

So... what's in the Box?
Could be anything from a chewed Seeker missile, to a Japanese Headmaster Head. (it's actually neither of those, but you get the idea)
(you don't get the box though... just the contents if chosen)


March prize items are from JayJays...
Two winners will have a choice of a t-shirt or towel.

It was something I thought up after seeing that there was less interest, or exposure, to the JP Gen1 era... so I want to encourage more actual reviews, to generate more discussion AND to enlighten those who haven't been exposed to that series yet.

So basically, at the end of each month, I'll look over the review topics... and pick someone who did up a review that had me interested/captivated.

(I'll give Gouki more time to respond though, as I'm sure people are wondering what is in the box... :p )

In some deluded way i am a hardcore fan. I know so little about the series, shows and comics that i remain true to the purpose of the tf franchise - to sell toys. Hasbro and Takara would love it if every child was like me, they would have to pay zero for marketing and tv show/comic creation. Release a few test shots and a youtube review and they have a sale in me.

So I take it the monthly prizes are not happening anymore? The RID/June winner/s were never announced :confused: and there was never any mention of Armada/July prizes.

Not that it really matters, I think we all just comment on these threads anyway for the joy of remembering all the toys we used to hunt for, the comics we used to read and the cartoons we used to tolerate :);)

We must nearly be to the end now. The Aligned continuity takes into account TFPrime which just ended, and Rescue Bots which is still running. What is left? The movie universe? Or would that wait until TF4 comes out? I suppose you could start on toy-only or comic-only continuities, though neither would give us as many different threads to discuss.

A shame, because I've really enjoyed these over the course of the year :)

I still wonder about who won the RiD prize. I was the only one that bothered to answer every thread on it so thought it was prob me but a winner was never announced. Don't think it matters, it was something like a Legion class Go! Starscream or something anyway.
