Hey guys... We have a winner already. It actually was neck and neck, with multiple parties needing to revise their entries. The winner just barely beat out another competitor by a sending in the revised entry a few minutes before I got the second batch. I'll post a story in the next day or two that announces the lucky winner and shows the winning photos. Thanks for all those who entered and who were going at this contest fast and furiously!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with another contest. This time the good folks at Sideshow contacted me saying they have a second chance offer on one of their best Premium Format figures ever. Check him out:
Next to their Han Solo, this is my favorite piece they’ve done in their STAR WARS line.
It retails at $324.99, so it’s not a cheap piece.
In trying to figure out a decent contest that wouldn’t drive me crazy and that had nothing to do with Photoshop I came up with what I think is a fun one.
Boba Fett is a bounty hunter. In this case the bounty is Fett himself, so to earn your bounty you’re going to go hunting.
Below you’ll find a list of items, some generic, some very specific. This is going to be a scavenger hunt of sorts. I want you to pick up your trusty camera and shoot a ton of stuff. The first person to get back to me with all the below from the list will win The Fett. Be careful you don’t cut any corners, though, because if something doesn’t smell right (ie you just downloaded a picture of an item instead of shooting it yourself) your entry will be looked over. I’ll let you know what’s not kosher, so you’ll have a shot to fix it, but that valuable time might cost you the bounty.
I’m going to want everything I mention to be something tangible unless specified. For example, if I say I want a photo of a 1969 Dodge Charger you can’t just open up Google, find and image and take a picture of your computer screen. I want a real photo taken by you yourself of a 1969 Dodge Charger.
There are exceptions… there are specific things below I want you to take off of your TV or computer screen, but I’ll make sure to say it’s kosher in the list below.
Here’s the list:
- HALO 3 Special Edition X-Box 360 (in box or out)
-A vintage (folded) movie poster (pre-1989)
-A pair of red Converse
-A pretty girl
-A bowl of steamin’ hot spaghetti
-The Making of Star Wars book on a bookshelf
-A figure frozen (your choice on who the figure is and how it’s frozen… but I have to be able to make out the toy in the ice… or carbonite if you have access to it)
-A movie related tattoo
-A John Williams CD
-Boba Fett (screenshot, figure, toy, drawing, whatever)
-Bossk (screenshot, figure, toy, drawing, whatever)
-IG-88 (see above)
-A Vern review on your computer
-Something with your picture on it
-A gas station sign (with all prices)
-A flying saucer
-Something “Made In China” (with the stamp clearly visible)
-Someone in uniform
-Your local newspaper with Friday, October 12th or Saturday, October 13th’s date on it
-The Orion logo (can be a screenshot, but I want to know what movie the screen shot comes from)
-The Cannon Logo (same)
-20th Century Fox Logo (same)
-A suit of armor
-An original NES
-Any issue of Robert Kirkman’s THE WALKING DEAD
-Any movie related T-shirt
-An original hardback Stephen King book pre-1986
-A Mexican Coca-Cola bottle
-A living lobster
There you go. That’s 35 items.
The contest begins now and ends when I get all of the above sent in photos to my satisfaction. On the off chance that 2 weeks pass by and I don’t get a full list I’ll make an announcement on the site and I’ll pick whoever has the most of what I want.
To submit, please email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Photo Fett Hunt. To avoid bounced mail, please send your 35 photos in a zip file or, even better, send a link to an online photo album.
