Good news everyone!   The G.I.Joe Contest I originally told you about here, is still on and the deadline has not only been extended, but the prize package has been sweetened ! I’ll be adding one Con exclusive Saw Viper to the list of prizes.  To get your interested, here are pics of the prizes, for details about the contest, keep reading after the pictures.


This bad boy could be yours, for free! Just enter the contest as this is now one of the prize options!

The other prizes are:

The Hard to find Ashiko with Armor Cycle

The New Deadline: April 15th. Yes that’s after Joecon, and possibly more importantly, that’s after the custom class you can find out about here.  This way if your going to con you have an extra chance to work on your custom, possibly with the help form experts. Yes someone going to Con would already have the chance to own a couple of Saw-vipers, but it’s an army builder right! and it will be worth $, not to mention it’s not the only prize that can be chosen from.  Being after con also allows me to get the saw-viper to the winner quickly, and if you hurry, will also allow a customizer more inspiration from seeing the Retaliation movie!

1st place will choose his prize, then 2nd place, and the third man will get the left overs.

The original post (with the rules) follows:

The Theme is Movie Verse 1.5. The idea is simple, with the upcoming retaliation movie there is a lot of hope it will do well, and reflection on what went wrong with Rise of Cobra. To enter the contest you have several options, 1. 1.5 can refer to an improvement on the designs of the original movie or the upcoming retaliation, such as repainting the Joes or Cobras to look more classic but using movie parts, 2. You can make a custom of a character appeared in the original movie but did not get a figure,( like Paris pursuit scarlet) or a character we have seen an image of in the Retaliation trailer or press releases but do not have a figure for (like spec ops or White uniform CC) 3. Finally you can make a figure of a movie character from the first movie, as they might appear in between the movies (Like using a Tatum head, but giving us an urban style Duke, or giving us a movie scarlet head, but in desert fatigues)

The rules:
1. You must be registered here on Toy Nation and have a post count minimum of 25 (which should be easy to do) to win.
2. You may enter as many customs as you like, but each person can only win one prize.(so if you place 1st and 2nd, i’d skip to number 3)
3. All customs will be shown on the forums, and will be open to vote by all members of the forums (invite your friends)
4. The point is to update or be in the movie universe, no 100 % arah updates please.
5. You may post work in progress threads, but if you do elsewhere, please also post them here!


as always you can join the discussion on the forums.
