The AFB Comment of the Month Contest - December 2012!


First off, congrats to Keenan Allen, who has been randomly selected as the winner of our November Comment of the Month Prize! Keenan entered the draw by sharing one of our photo albums at Facebook! Keenan - keep an eye on your Facebook messages for details on how to claim your prize!

For our December Comment of the Month Contest, our prize will stick with the DC New 52 theme and come in the form of the DC Collectibles Cyborg Action Figure - - sent to you by Mike's Comics N' Stuff!


Comments made here at the blog, at our Facebook PageTwitter OR as podcast feedback (podcast@actionfigureblues.com) will ALL be entered into the draw for the month's comment contest prize! There are plenty of ways to win! 

A few bits and pieces:


  • every genuine comment here at the blog, at Facebook or Twitter, or received as podcast feedback will be eligible to receive 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 – likewise Facebook comments from members who cannot receive messages.

  • 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 all this is coming out of AFB’s not dreadfully deep pockets!

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