AFB Comment of the Month Contest – July 2009

contestjul091First off, thanks to everyone who made an effort to comment on posts from June here on AFB. It’s very heartening to get feedback and have some discussion going on the blog as well as the forum.

Congratulations to Freak Studios for winning the June 2009 Comment of the Month Contest. His comment was randomly selected by a random number selector (of which I have discovered there are many on the internet!) and he now gets the choice of either the classic Dr Fate from DCUC Wave 8 or Livewire from Superman / Batman Wave 7 which FINALLY comes out this week! One he’s made his choice his prize will be delivered courtesy of AFB and Mike from Mike’s Comics N’ Stuff. Well done Freak Studios!

contestjul092For July, the two choices on offer are either the Batman figure from DC Direct’s History of the DC Universe Wave One, or both the Classic and Modern Ms Marvel figures from Marvel Universe Wave 3.

Here’s a reminder of the basic contest rules:

  • every genuine comment on a post from the calendar month will be eligible for receiving the prize. I’m going to stick to my own time zone and call it at 23:59:59 Australian Eastern Standard Time – best to comment often and comment early
  • if my super scientific randomizer comment selector system chooses an Anonymous comment, I’ll skip it and go again – you need to leave a name, a link, your AFB Forum username or email addy so that I can contact you if you are the winner. Blogger comments allows you to do this.
  • you will be given a choice of one of the two figures on offer from the month’s contest – figures will be in their original packaging
  • figures will be sent by first class mail within the US (Mike is sending them, remember) and first class international to any overseas winner. An overseas winner can elect to chip in for Priority Mail or Insurance, but otherwise we can’t take any responsibility for a parcel that doesn’t arrive – after this is coming out of AFB’s  not dreadfully deep pockets!

mikesLOGOOnce again, thanks to Mike for making this all possible for us, and here’s to another happy month of commenting!

Until next time!

You just put me in an incredibly awkward position... I'm at work right now, so I'll have to go to the bathroom before starting to jump up and down.

Thank you very much! AFB Rules!

i haven't had a chance to see any of the dc direct stuff yet as there are no stores near me which carry them.

such is the peril of living an hour away from 2 major cities and not having a means to get to either one

Way to go Freak Studio! He should win just because he has to survive amongst toy collector eating rats!

I knew that story about the flesh eating rats was going to give me all the sympathy votes!

Nice work Freak Studio. That Batman looks like a delicious item for this month though...

I wish they hadn't made Brainiac so dark green and ripped, but we already knew from the promo photos what to expect. Looks like the shades of pink don't match well from his chest and arms either (as another one I have seen in photos looks the same).

If he was not in a two-pack I might still get him, but now it makes me more annoyed that it would cost even more to get him as he is. Here we have waited SO long for this classic version and they really could have done a better job.

That contest sounds cool and the website is great.
