We have 2 really cool Indy contests running at the moment!
CONTEST #1 – Win your own Deluxe Custom 3 3/4 Indy figure with thanks to Ron Hembling
Entrants are to create a photo novel story using existing figures and playsets or you can use custom figures and playsets – the choice is yours. The photo novel can use Photoshop work as long as it has action figures and playsets in them.
The story would be INDIANA JONES and the MAYAN SECRET and the story needs to include Mayans – For example it could do some sort of secret treasure, secret Nazi base, a curse, the fountain of youth or yes even flying saucers.
The photo novel must be 4-5 pages long but can be longer if you want and it can be in any year from 1936-1960 that way Indy is still around so the imagination is the only thing holding you back. There will be only one major prize winner and that winner can pick ANY kind of DX 3-3/4″ Indy they want. Take a look at our IndyCast flickr page to take a look at Ron’s DX Custom figure. These are incredibly detailed versions of the figures with display box and the accessories.
The contest will run till 20th Feb 2014. You can register your interest by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
