IS IT YOU? :: Who Shall Wield The Power Cosmic?
Remember the cool-looking life-sized Silver Surfer standee that we had in front of our booth at this past HeroesCon? Sure you do! It was a promotional item given to us to help promote the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer movie, and the subject of many many photographs, usually with a smiling fan attendee, taken at the show. Well, we had a couple of different ideas about what to do with it after the show, but we're just too busy to make any of those a reality in the near future--so we decided we would give it away! That's right, absolutely free! It's been sitting in our warehouse, usually scaring the bejeezus out of me when I'm turning the lights on, and notice a crouching naked person in the shadows. Fill in your own "and then I see the Surfer" joke. Anyway, Shelton needs to clear some room for some different projects he wants to get underway. We thought about trying to sell it, but we decided that we like you so much that we just want you to have it.
But which one of you? We like all of you equally; don't ask us to choose! But if you want to have this life-sized Surfer collectible for your very own, post a comment detailing why you deserve it. Did you sacrifice yourself and your love for a hot space-chic in order to save your planet from being eaten? That's a good reason, but yours is probably different. All that we ask is that you a) keep it clean; b) be creative; and c) make sure you can actually come to our store and pick it up. We're not interested in shipping this big thing anywhere. Also: the cardboard background is gone, but the Surfer himself is mounted on a surprisingly sturdy metal framework. It's not just a bunch of chipboard or something.
So tell me: Why do you deserve to wield the, er, Power Cosmic?
