Today’s CtP was going to be a straight cartoon for next week, but I decided it would be a lot funnier to see what you folks can come up with. This week’s prize is: a MOC Hulkbuster Iron Man!
Before I announce last week’s winner, I’ve got a few pieces of business.
First off, it appears the Iron Man movie figures have hit eBay. So I’m sending out an S.O.S.*–if anyone spots an Iron Monger in a store (and doesn’t want him), please consider picking him up for me. I have no idea when I’ll actually see one of these things in stores, and I haven’t been able to find a place to order one online. Papa needs a giant robot.
In other superhero-toy-related news, apparently Mattel is now saying that the second wave of DCUC figures won’t ship until March 31. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were a week or two earlier than that, but I just wanted to keep those of you participating in the contest updated.
OK, on to the winner. After much nagging, I managed to get enough of a pool of entries to pick a winner: Paul of ToyBender. His winning entry:
“Guy reading the paper: “I get it Sgt. You enjoy wearing women’s underwear. Now can you stop sending these pictures to me as ‘New Top Secret Orders from Headquarters’?”
Paul, shoot me your address and the Bizarro is yours.
One last thing: I need one more correspondent. Paul and PrfktTear are fantastic, but I’m still lacking coverage for one very important toy world: Hasbro’s Marvel stuff. Legends, Superhero Squad, all of it. If you’re an obsessive Marvel Legends collector, enjoy writing, and would like to be PGPoA’s Marvel correspondent, drop me a line. As of right now there’s no compensation other than minor fame, but I’m hoping to change that in the future.
And with that, let’s get work on this week’s Caption the Pic. I’m going to raise the stakes this time–if I don’t get at least twenty entries from different individuals, I’m pushing the Hulkbuster Iron Man back to the next CtP and will offer a somewhat lesser prize to next week’s winner. Yeah, I’m like that.
