Hey there boys and girls. Here it is. You’ve been waiting with bated breath, I know, and you are now officially free to resume respiration for here it is: our very first contest.
Thanks to our friends over at Sideshow Collectibles – creators and purveyors of the absolute best geek toys in the whole wide world – and in collaboration with our good friends over at Imagine Dat we are most please to have secured a little something something to give away. For free. Perhaps even to you. What is it, you ask?
This: Sideshow’s new sculpted bust of Hellboy and the Corpse. This bad boy stands a solid twelve inches tall, is part of a limited edition set of 1500 (and thus very, very much a collectible item sure to jump in value) and retails for $150 US. I really don’t want to give it away but we told Sideshow we would so now we’ve got no choice.
And how can you get your grubby little paws on this lovely little artifact? It’s a caption contest! That’s right boys and girls, take a look at that film still down below and write up a pithy comment. Whatever could they be saying? It’s a mystery and whoever solves it in the winningest fashion will, in fact, win. But here’s the rub: we’re feeling a little difficult so your caption must be written as a haiku. You remember those from English class, right? Non-rhyming poem, three lines, first line has exactly five syllables, line two has seven and five again on line three. So get writing! Amaze us with your zen-like prowess. Special points will be given to particularly ‘fiery’ haikus, what with the subjects being a demon and pyrokinetic.
One last note before I set you free to commence: Bear in mind that Imagine Dat is very deliberately run to be a family-friendly site. For geeky families, yes, but for families nonetheless. While no one hereabouts will deny the pleasures inherent in writing anatomically detailed haiku we would recommend that you do those ones purely for your own enjoyment. They may be fun to write, but if Imagine Dat can’t reprint them, you aint winning. That in mind, get writing and when all is well and good click here to enter! Feel free to post your haiku’s in the comments here for everyone’s enjoyment but you MUST send them in through the link above for them to be considered. You’ve got till June 15th. Get writing.
