Premium Format [In reply to] Can't Post

Great contest! Sideshow continues to impress me by constantly giving away so many great prizes.

Also, it's Premium Format, not Professional Format :)

*tapping foot*... [In reply to] Can't Post

So what does a woman have to do around here to get the Boromir 12-inch figure, huh?!

Eat MrC's sandwiches?!

Light Inferno's B-B-Q?!

Dam Silverlode's tears?!

Hang Hengist's Angst?!

Or do I have to resort to desperate measures and drop my loincloth?!

WHAAAAAAAAAT?!!!!!!!






Meh.

I'll take what I can get. A freebie's a freebie and that Frodo looks cool.

"That is one thing that Men call 'hope.' Amdir we call it, 'looking up.' But there is another which is founded deeper. Estel we call it, that is 'trust.' It is not defeated by the ways of the world, for it does not come from experience, but from our nature and First Being. If we are indeed the Eruhin, the Children of the One, then He will not suffer Himself to be deprived of His own, not by any enemy, not even by ourselves. This is the last foundation of estel, which we keep even when we contemplate the End. Of all His designs the issue must be for His children's joy."

Thanks Sideshow and TORn!!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Sideshow really does live up to their contests!!!! I won Mace Windu and Sith Anakin from a contest on their website a while ago! Even my horse though they were cool!



The repetition, the doubling and the long strands of interconnected narrative all mean something. They say that life is a series of cycles, and that we will likely meet the same kinds of archetypal guardians, opponents and allies at various stages along the way. But the nature of the conflicts changes as you age and grow over the span of an epic. Reading 'The Lord of the Rings' in my 20s, I was inspired by its idealism, but also terrified by its vision of middle life and old age as a patient, plodding struggle against the mundane grinding of evil. Seeing the movie meant something else to me from my current perspective, around the corner of age fifty, reminding me that the raw intensity of youthful dreams still has purity and power. At the same time, I felt the death of comrades in the movie keenly, for comrades have started to fall around me, and I looked to the story for the courage to continue the struggle without them.~As the legend says, 'One Ring to rule them all and in the darkness bind them.' We were certainly bound in the darkness, me and that afternoon's audience for the first chapter of 'The Lord of the Rings,' fellow travelers on a long journey together, seeking meaning for our shadowed world in the mirror of a myth, just as humans have always done.~Christopher Vogler

Frodo figure [In reply to] Can't Post

It would be so cool to win a figure of my favorite character. I honestly think this is the best representation of Frodo I have seen. Good luck to all.

If I win this contest, I will help Frodo bear his burden as long as it is his to bear.

If, by my life or death, I can protect you, I will. You have my sword.
And, you have my bow.
And my axe.

Like taxes. [In reply to] Can't Post

What if this is like that Oprah Winfrey show where she gave everyone in the audience a new car, but many people couldn’t afford to pay the taxes on it? How much is this thing worth, anyway? Is it going to put me in a higher tax bracket? *panics*
