Woo hoo! STAR WARS DAY!!!
Whats-a happening my friends? So as you can imagine, as the resident walking carpet of this site, I’m super stoked for today. I’ve written about Star Wars Day before so decided today needed to be different. During my Christmas shopping last year tracking down some awesome Jabba the Hutt merchandise for my oldest ewok, I came across a rather sweet Simpsons action figure. Looking at the beauty, I said to myself, “Self. Wouldn’t it be cool to give this away to a reader in honor of 2015 being the year the new Star Wars movie is coming out?” Well, I answered yes and promptly snatched up the figure as the geek store had it priced way cheaper than the one I already own. Months later, the day has arrived where I finally get to give it away.
So here’s the deal. In honor of the Star Wars premiere and May the 4th, I am giving away a Mark Hamill action figure from the 25 Greatest Guest Stars line of action figures made by NECA.
Woo hoo! Free stuff! What might make me do something like this? Well, I’m actually not just a big fan of Star Wars, I’m also an uber fan of the readers who come to the site and really just like to give stuff away. Also… a new Star Wars movie IS coming out in December and this action figure ties it to The Simpsons quite nicely. If I had my druthers, I’d talk about Star Wars every day. I mean c’mon, my blogger handle IS The Wookiee.
BONUS… this contest is easy. All you have to do is write a comment that is Star Wars related. Send a funny Star Wars picture in the comments, tell me why you love the epic space opera, share a favorite memory of the movies in your life, write a poem about Jar Jar. That’s it. It’s Star Wars Day and we should celebrate the movies. All you have to do is comment with something Wars related. I’m so looking forward to all your creativity.
Remember photos can easily be shared via Flickr, etc. Check out this post for help with that. If you like other sites to share photos, by all means, please do. Here’s one of my favorite pics I came across recently.
Stories could be as simple as this first time you saw one of the movies, your favorite scene, how much you love Chewbacca, etc. If I was going to enter, I could write all about cosplaying at the Star Wars Celebration 2015.
I mean, who gets the chance to turn their blog avatar into real life?
You have two days to submit a comment. I’m sure all of our Imperial lovers out there would remind me that tomorrow is sometimes called Revenge of the Fifth (I think it’s just an excuse to extend the celebration another day lol), so I figure two days is enough time to submit an entry. Once the contest closes… we’ll run a randomizer to pick the winner and voila, someone will receive Mark Hamill in all his Simpsons action figure glory to do with as they wish ***.
*** Wookiee not included in prize shipment.***
