GI Joe: First Salvo custom contest


Recommended Posts

My friend is hosting a custom figure contest based on his Amazon Kindle World novel GI Joe: First Salvo:










He's holding it on facebook, but also is opening it up to non-FB members. Here's the info and the email for entries at the bottom:







1) Must be a new custom, made just for this contest.

2) Must depict a character as described in the novel G.I. Joe: First Salvo.

3) You must submit up to five pictures of the custom. One can be a diorama shot, but only the figure will be judged. Figures can be posted here or emailed to gijoenovel@gmail.com.... All emailed entries will be posted here.

4) All entries must be received by midnight (central time) of September 30th.

5) The winner will either be selected by a fan poll or judged by me.

6) The prize will be a blank body figure from Boss Fight. Because Boss Fight will not be shipping their product until February, the winner will not have the prize mailed until after that time.


If there are any questions, feel free to post them to this page or contact me at gijoenovel@gmail.com.










The new incentive for the G.I. Joe: First Salvo custom contest can now be announced. Thanks to The AngelForge, we now have 15 sets of custom grab bag parts to distribute to people who are committed to entering the contest. Each grab bag includes 5 heads). One grab bag each will be given to the first 15 people who contact me and indicate that they are entering the contest. Participants will be asked a question about the novel to verify that the book has been purchased. Grab bags will be chosen at random and mailed to the participants. AngelForge has also added a prize pack to the prize pool (which also includes Robert Atkins artwork, a BBTS gift certificate, a Boss Fight blank body, and a Marauder action figure).

The prizes keep adding up...


BBTS $40 gift certificate

Robert Atkins original art

Robert Atkins prints

Boss Fight HACKS blank-when released

Marauder Task Force Gaming figure "Logan"-when released




A special announcement next week that will include a prize pack and special limited amount of incentive packs. These will be limited and first come first serve w/ a little stipulation added to them.


Here's the rest of the announcement:


I am pleased to share a lot of exciting news regarding this contest. First of all, a number of new prizes have been made available. Robert Atkins, the talented and brilliant G.I. Joe artist, has agreed to donate art and signed prints as prizes. I'd like to send a very special thanks to Mr. Atkins for his generous support. Next, Big Bad Toy Store has agreed to donate a $40 gift certificate to add to the prizes as well. This may go to the winner or get split up among winners. I will post details about how all of the prizes get distributed after another bit of news is made official next week.

Another donor has agreed to donate a Logan "Command Ops" figure from Marauder Task Force Gaming. Like the Boss Fight figure, this will not be sent out until Marauder mails their product out to the people who supported their Kickstarter campaign. The fourth bit of news must remain somewhat obscure as of this posting, but I can say that another group has agreed not only to donate yet another prize but also to send out incentives for people who have made a commitment to participating in the contest. I can't say more until I have the items in hand, but these will appeal to customizers a great deal. These incentives will be limited in number and will only be made available to people who demonstrate a commitment to the custom contest (those seeking the incentive will be asked a question from the book to demonstrate that they have purchased it). All told, we now have a Boss Fight blank body, Robert Atkins art, a Big Bad Toy Store gift certificate, a Marauder Logan "Command Ops" figure, and a mystery prize to be announced in the future (probably next week) as prizes for this contest, as well as incentives to mail out for people who are committed to entering the contest. I'd like to once again thank all of the people and companies who have agreed to support this project and those people who have worked behind the scenes to make this all possible.


Please feel free to check out his FB page and like and share his announcement and check back next week for full details on the "special announcement".
