Oh well. The figure is probably shoddy, sure it should be the level of a prototype which is usually quite high but since they won't be making money off of it, then it'll probably be pretty low quality. Maybe just a head on an already made body. :p

The rest is pretty eh. If you meant 10,000 dollars than he'll probably blow it right away and the 2003 set of figures, well if that included deluxe and such that would be sweet. It's kinda cool but the whole contest seemed craptacular from the beginning.

Anyone can tell me what the contest was based on?

It's a $10,000 savings BOND. There's a difference between that and ten thousand bucks.

The bond will probably mature until he's college-aged, and then he can pay for his education, buy a car (almost), or make a down-payment on a very small condo.

Hasbro probably spent less than $5,000 to get the bond. If he cashes it now, that's all he'll get for its $10,000 future worth - maybe a few thousand dollars in its present worth.

Does everyone understand what a savings bond is now?

I know what a savings bond is. :p I thought the kid would just be taken to a secret location and an unmarked car would pull up, some masked guys would get out, give the kid a suitcase filled with 10,000 in small unmarked bills then hightail it out of there. :p

Yeah, but he'll be stuck in some ridiculous pose and won't fit in his vehicle.:o

But, he'll be rereleased about 6 months later with a resculpted version, 20 points of articulation, and a kung-fu grip.

that kid is darn lucky, although i can only see jealousy being the reason everyone is hating on his action figure.

I thought Hasbro's contest was kaka! There is no way I (or most of us for that matter) would have been able to photograph my collection.

I knew I would not win the country wide. But I felt I should have atleast won out of the state of Illinois. I'll have to send you all the copies of my collection photos. Being a fourteen year old collector, and starting from three years old, I felt with the sheer size and amount in collection along with my documentation I took time to do that I had a good chance in this contest. But looks like I wont be getting that Jedi version of myself I wanted, or even the jorg sacul and toy fair Darth Vader(I never was able to get) Nevertheless I have had set backs in the past, and there was no guarantee that I would win in the first place. It was a bit of fun massing my collection throughout the whole family room for the pictures, but I of course will still always continue collecting. And since I'm going to be fifteen in a few months, it will have been over 12 years of collecting, from the original figures back in the 80s to all the figures I own now current. I thank Rebelscum, and Sirstevesguide, for their inventory lists that helped me in identifying all the figures and everything in my collection. So before I continue babblying on, I also congradulate

Andrew Sherant, that must have been one hell of a collection.:)

I was gonna enter that. But I just gave up and didn't want to mess with it. I would have had a good chance too... Sorry that you didn't win Master Plo- Koon. Oh yeah... I was gonna put my whole collection in the family room too. HAHA!!!!! :crazed:

Thankyou, I'd like to see your collection too.:) It was a fun thing to do, Im still going to go on collecting, I realize being mad about not winning doesnt always make things better, its best to keep on going. And in this case keep collecting. Plus the 2003 line, is looking really great, and Ill be getting my Imperial shuttle in a couple weeks.
