Toy Lines! The AFB Caption Contest: Round Two!

First off, many thanks to everyone who entered the first round of "Toy Lines!", our new caption contest! There were some really wonderful entries in Round One - you can see them all by clicking here. Do have a look as they are well worth it!

The task for Round One was to add captions to a photo featuring Black Hand, Mongul and Black Lantern Abin Sur, and our entrants rose the challenge!

There were some common threads in some of the Round One entries and a number I think are absolutely brilliant. In the end though, it's my job to choose the winners of each round, with the ultimate winner chosen by the readers of AFB.

I'm going with the entry that made me laugh the loudest and longest. It just happens to be the very first entry that was made. Congratulations to our Round One winner, bubbashelby! Here's his hilarious entry:

I love this entry not just because it's extremely funny, but because of the levels of humour - the fun comes not just from explaining what's happening in the photo, but also mocking the Green Lantern Corps Series 1 Mongul's colour scheme, which is seriously mock-worthy!

So, bubbashelby's Round One Winner will face off against the winners from the next three rounds in a public vote here on the blog, with the winner receiving our prize, which is a Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Eternian Palace Guards Two Pack, like the one reviewed here. The prize will be an unopened version still sealed in its white mailer box.

That means there are still three chances to win, and the next challenge is just below. See what fun can you have with this one:

There will be four rounds of "Toy Lines!", each lasting 10 days, starting with the Round One Pic I'm posting today (see below). The winners of each round will be decided by me, and once all four rounds are over, the four winning photos will be put up to a vote here on the site for the AFB Readership to decide the ultimate winner.

Here are the basic rules:

  • You are allowed to save your own copy of the photo for each round and edit it to present your entry.

  • Only one entry per person per round is allowed. You may enter each round, even if you have won a previous round.

  • You do not have to give "lines" to every toy in the photo. How you script it is up to you!

  • Entries must be posted at the AFB Forum in the thread for each round - Round Two is here

  • Every 10 (or so) days I will announce the winner for the previous round here at the blog and post a new photo for a new round

  • Once we have completed four rounds, I will post the four winning photos here at the blog and post a poll for AFB readers to vote for the winner. This will be a blind poll and will run for 15 days.

  • The reader vote will determine the winner. The winner will receive the MOTUC Eternian Palace Guards Two-Pack with standard shipping. The winner may add express shipping or insurance at his/her own expense.

    Keep up the good work, and I look forward to the next great round! Also, you can of course comment on this post to enter the March AFB Comment of the Month Contest!

Until next time!
