Trygg Poftu Contest Winner

star-wars-logo-gold

First off, a big thank you to everyone who entered the Trygg Poftu contest. As I read each entry, I imagined I was reading through a number of alternate universes where the being named “Trygg Poftu” led some very different lives (often within some very different bodies). The entries ranged from bizarre to fairly serious, although all of them had an element of humor.

The winning submission contained all the qualities I was looking for in a Trygg Poftu bio. The style and tone reminded me of Andy Mangels’s Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Characters, which I’m quite fond of and had in mind when I created this contest. In classic Expanded Universe tradition, it’s exhaustively thorough without being boring. It makes the character important to the Star Wars universe without giving him an integral Marty Stu-like role. It has a great Mystery Science Theater 3000 reference.

Poe’s Note: MisterBigBo went patriotic with this one. I liked the background and the anachronism of it.

Red Iron Winner > Red Banigoth by Clark Walker

Red Banigoth

Poe’s Note: I thought this one was adorable, and was fairly impressed by how well it was actually able to approximate the pose given the limited articulation. Congrats to Clark Walker!

 

The Red Iron Photo Contest

IMPOSTER_BOOKiron-man-hit

Artist Adi Granov created one of the most iconic images of Iron Man ever for the cover of Invincible Iron Man 76/421 (March 2004). Four years later, the pose was recreated for marketing materials for the Iron Man film, which cemented its place in pop culture. In honor of Derek Zoolander, I’m calling this pose “Red Iron.”

Identify the Toy Contest Winners

Doc Thomas here. Before I announce our winners and reveal the names of the toys, I want to thank everyone for helping out with identifying these random loose toys I found in an undisclosed location – we are blessed with some true action figure savants here! Most of the entries got well over half of the toys in a very, VERY impressive display of action figure knowledge! I am most impressed!

We had two winners who drew for first place, guessing nearly every single one of the toys on the list! They are BEN LEACH and WES WRIGHT, who absolutely nailed it! Congratulations to you both, you will be receiving a Poe Prize. Now, onto the ACTION FIGURE IDENTITIES!!

Bat-Libs II Winner

We’ve got a winner in last week’s Bat-Libs II contest! The winner gets a Dark Knight Rises Funko POP! Batman figure, courtesy Superheroden.com.

First, the runners-up. The first comes courtesy dasbookpimp:

It is a cheap time in Gotham City. Koalas run rampant through the streets. Absent for years, the time has come for the Batman to rise and prevent his greatest enemy from sending the people of Gotham. Aiding the hero in his quest is a cast of characters including Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, and Phil.

Ah yes, those dark days when koalas threatened the people of Gotham, and Batman had to call upon his greatest ally: Phil.

Next we have one from BubbaShelby, who chronicles the Gotham Religious Riots of 2003, when the Quakers fought for the city block by block with the Mormons, who were led by their current standard bearer:

It is a grouchy time in Gotham City. Quakers run rampant through the streets. Absent for years, the time has come for the Batman to rise and prevent his greatest enemy from probing the people of Gotham. Aiding the hero in his quest is a cast of characters including Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, and Mitt Romney.

And finally here’s the winning entry by Joshua Raymond:

It is a surreal time in Gotham City. Sea monkeys run rampant through the streets. Absent for years, the time has come for the Batman to rise and prevent his greatest enemy from massaging the people of Gotham. Aiding the hero in his quest is a cast of characters including Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, and Abraham Lincoln.

I’m pretty sure Batman actually did team up with Lincoln once in the comics…probably sometime in the fifties. There was some weird crap going on back then.

Also, it’s kind of a dick move for Batman to prevent his enemy from giving massages to the people of Gotham. After everything they’ve been through, what with being conquered by Mumbly Joe and having a nuclear weapon detonated six miles from the city which must have given radiation sickness to thousands, they could use a rub-down.

Contest > Win a Funko Dark Knight Rises Batman from Superheroden.com!

Superheroden.com has kindly donated a Dark Knight Rises Funko POP! figure for a contest here on PGPoA. Make your other Funko POP! figures swear to him by filling in the blanks in our second “Bat-Libs” contest!

Here’s how to enter: I’ve written a small paragraph about Batman and Robin engaging in their usual heroic derring-do. (To avoid any accusations of having tailored the paragraph to a particular entry, I’m sending it to the Power Pals ahead of time.)

This paragraph has a few blanks – blanks YOU must fill. In the comments below, provide the following:

  • An adjective
  • A plural animal/person noun (cows, punks, etc.)
  • A transitive verb (i.e., a verb in which you do something to something else – push, kiss, kill, etc.)
  • A person’s name

Entries are due by 11:59pm Monday, December 17. The winning entry will be selected by me and will be announced by the end of next week. Good luck, and be sure to visit Superhero Den for more great Batman and superhero merchandise!

Rules:

  • Winner must have a U.S. shipping address for the prize to be mailed to.
  • PGPoA Power Pals and Poe’s friends and family not eligible.
