Y’know, I hate it when I do these contests where I have to pick the winner. I thought about pawning the duty off on Dr. Mrs. Ghostal, but she was watching TV, so no help there. Not really fair anyway, since it’s my site. Then I thought about asking Doc Thomas to decide, before I remembered he was clinically insane. So in the end, I had to decide myself.
This was not easy. There were a ton of excellent submissions. I knew you guys were awesome, but I guess I didn’t realize just how awesome…if I’d thought about it, I would have had more prizes.
First, the runners-up:
I liked the staging of this one from ErinLSnyder, with the tentacle wrapped around the computer.
The one from Nerdbot looked a lot like one of my own, and I love that bizarre little Godzilla toy.
The one from Poester Daniel B. and his boys definitely captured the “odds and ends” spirit with a lot of strange little toys. What is that little chrome dude in the black chair from? Zoids? I want one of those.
But the big winner is…
…Paul Kelly, a.k.a. “Feetmittens,” whose persistence paid off. Paul sent me several (unsolicited) revisions of his submission, and clearly spent a lot of time with toy choice, staging, and getting the right balance of white background. And the rainbow Domo in the middle was pure genius.
So Paul wins the set of DC Direct Batman: Incorporated figures, courtesy of Figure of the Day!
Congratulations to all who entered–there were tons of great entries in this one. They were all so good, I’m posting them below. I plan to use the winner, the runners-up, and many of the ones below in my actual Odds ‘n Ends posts.
And don’t worry–FOTD and I are already working on another contest that may or may not involve a certain famous superhero team.
