Need more incentive to buy DST's 24-in Stay Puft MM? How about the chance to win prizes? photo
Need more incentive to buy DST's 24-in Stay Puft MM? How about the chance to win prizes?
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys' 24-inch tall Stay Puft Marshmallow Man vinyl bank recently started to ship and, to celebrate, DST will be hosting a series of monthly contests where all fans need to do to win is take a photo of their 24-inch Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (either the good or evil version) somewhere outside and then email that photo to collectdst@gmail.com. Easy, right?

Winners will score prize packages which consist of $100 worth of toys and collectibles from DST. Considering that Stay Puft himself retails for US$125, the figure could almost pay for itself.

The rules are stated as follows: "Photos must be at least 600 x 800 pixels. One entry per person per monthly cycle. Duplicate entries will not be included in the drawing. If you do not win, a new photo can be submitted after the start of the new month. A previously submitted picture cannot be submitted again. All entries become the property of Diamond Select Toys, and can be used on various Websites and social media sites. Prize package value is based on suggested retail price of all items combined. Winners are prohibited from entering any DST contest again for one year."

There's currently no word as to when this contest will end. It's certainly one way to promote a very cool, very high-ticket collectible.

Tomopop Micropixel: Girl power! results
by Vanessa Cubillo

Thanks so much to everyone who entered this month's Tomopop Micropixel contest. The theme was Girl Power, so the focus was all on female figures. I loved every submission, so it was really hard to pick a winner.

Still, our Tomopop panel of judges couldn't resist a group of gun-toting girls. So our winner is miletangerine! You will be getting Kaiyodo's Sci-Fi Revoltech Sulley and Mike.

Please email me at Vanessa@tomopop.com with your name and address. Look out for next month's contest where we'll be giving out even more cool stuff.

Tomopop Micropixel: Girl power!
by Vanessa Cubillo

Reminder: There's still time to enter our Tomopop Micropixel contest. The deadline is March 17.

Hello Tomopop readers!

Here we are in a brand new month, so I think it’s about time we roll out a brand new photo contest! March is the start of Women’s History Month, today also just happens to be Girl’s Day in Japan. So the theme for this photo contest will be Girl Power.

Get out your female figures and take a photo that really makes them shine. Show them strong, fierce, and beautiful. Of course, creativity is always encouraged.

Don’t feel like you have to be limited to making your figure look a certain way. As long as your photo shows your female figure in a positive way it’s alright. To enter, comment on this post with your photo or a link to your photo.

Just make sure we’re able to see your entry! The winner will receive Kaiyodo’s Sci-Fi Revoltech Sulley & Mike. You’ll have until March 17 to enter, so you’ll have plenty of time to plan.

Make your own valentine and win a Funko Castiel Pop! photo
Make your own valentine and win a Funko Castiel Pop!
by Vanessa Cubillo

Reminder: The deadline for this contest is this Saturday. Submit your valentine for a chance to win!

It’s officially February, so that means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Can’t you just feel the love in the air? Ok, well I just smell chocolate and that’s good enough for me.

My favorite part about this day is giving out valentine cards to all the people I care about. It’s even better when you make the valentine yourself, and that brings us to the contest! Here at Tomopop we love toys, and if you’re here, so do you.

So we want you to show that love by making a valentine for your favorite figure or fictional character. You can make your valentine any way you want. You can write it, draw it, bake it, knit it, etc.

Whatever you choose to do, make sure you take a picture and submit it in the comments here. Your valentine can be cute, sweet, creepy, funny, any way you want. Just be creative!

For example, one of my favorite figures is my Rick Grimes Pop! so I crocheted him a little heart he can hold. Hopefully you’ll be much more creative than me. The best submission we get will win an exclusive Funko Supernatural Castiel Pop! figure. I know what you're thinking, and the answer is yes, you can make a valentine for Castiel!

You’ll have until February 15 to submit your entries.

[REMINDER] Tomopop Micropixel: Best of Friends
by Martin Siggers

Christmas will soon be upon us, so what better time to start giving stuff away? Yes, it's time for a new photo contest!

The theme this time out will be Best of Friends. We want to see your figures hanging out with each other, spending some quality time. Naturally, two figures is the obvious way to go here, but don't let that restrain you - we'll accept pictures of figures with pets or even people, as long as it's a great shot. Be imaginative and creative. If it's unexpected or makes us laugh, that's extra points!

If you're interested in entering, then you can comment on this post with your photo or a link to your photos. Alternatively, post over in the Cblogs - we'd love to see how you went about taking your pictures.  You're only allowed to enter once per person, so bring your A-game. This contest is open for readers worldwide, but please note if you're outside the United Kingdom then we'd nicely ask you to cover the cost of shipping the prize.

We've got the perfect prize for the competition too, with Alter's version of everyone's favourite yaoi couple best buddies Waver Velvet and Rider (review), from Fate/Zero, up for grabs. If you want them on your shelf, you've got until midnight CST on Monday 23rd December to get those entries in. Good luck!
