I am the NERD KING!!!
« on: June 19, 2003, 10:09 AM »
I entered this contest over at allnerdreview.com where I had to identify a bunch of action figures, several of which were Star Wars figures. I actually won! Check it out...

Ah, vindication. Wear your crown with pride. We're all very proud of you.

Now go get some sunshine. You're looking pale.
Post sober.

Yeah, especially after this description they wrote up about you:

Quote
Additionally, he was one of two entries that actually spelled the eMail subject heading right. It has to be a certain madness that drives a man this nerdy, he who actually knew which playset that Bespin Guard was from, even in my crappy photos. Amazing...

 :P  Obviously they never caught your post in the Spelling thread here, or they wouldn't have been so surprised!   ;)



Seriously though, pretty cool Ed!  Congrats!  I would've gotten my butt kicked by that lineup!  Hope you can use that Mask of Phanteana figure you just won!

Yeah!!! ;)

Honestly I just wanted to see if I could win it. I'd never even heard of that Phantaena figure or the other figures in that line. I guess it'll be a conversation piece...

Any contests coming up from JD?

Well, we had this one just end yesterday - for $50 store credit at Kebco!

Not quite sure when our next giveaway's gonna go down, but stay tuned!  Maybe we could try to put together more of a "contest" spin on one soon.  That sounds fun!   8)

Maybe like a JD spelling bee, or something...   ;D   :P

Nope, gotta disagree.  That was just ubb experience, not particularly helpful :P :-*  Besides, look what you turned into in that thread with his help ;D

And to help keep shipping costs down, Canadians should be excluded from the contest.  :P
