A Star Wars Celebration IV Freak Contest!


Thanks to Sideshow for supplying us with an EXCLUSIVE Luke Skywalker & Yoda Premium Format Figure!


http://sideshowcollectors.com/luke_yo.jpg



Look at the three trivia questions below (all can be answered by checking out Sideshow's CIV coverage) and email your answers to dstephan@sideshowcollectors.com with "CIV Freak" in the subject line. Along with the correct answers you must include your board name, real name and shipping address or your entry will be disqualified.

The winner will be drawn from all completely correct entries (or most correct).

But that's not all!

Random entrants will receive a free Celebration IV gift card or a SSC Darth Vader T-shirt courtesy of Sideshow (and Dusty). Please note the terms and conditions of gift card use. (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?category=giftcard_lookup)

Gift card winners will be selected from all entries, whether the trivia answers are correct or not. I have a lot of them, so you stand a good chance of getting one if you enter.

The contest runs from May 27th through midnight PST, June 10, 2007.
________________________
Trivia Question #1

I've found two answers that can answer question #2. Is the correct answer Star Wars related?

Dang, I can't find the first one.

Same here. I take it the Darth is just a joke and it is talking about Brant Bridges right? Funny, my cell phone answering machine is Darth Vader and my first name is Brant. I guess that makes ME Darth Brant. I guess whatever I put down is right! :D

Seriously, its Brant Bridges right? Or is it Darth Rimmer? Or a combination of the two? :confused:

I didn't think #1 was hard at all... maybe you guys are overthinking it. :confused:

I don't think so. I'm just not finding it.

Buttmunch
05-27-2007, 11:01 PM
Ok I found it. But that really isn't a Marvel Build-A-Figure. It is the same character as one of the build-a-figures, but that isn't the build-a-figure figure.

So far I have found the answer for #2 but the others seem to be hard to find.

Darth Madden

Found them all, that wasn't too bad. Thanks for the contest Dave.

Darth Loki

I'd love to win this for my Dad. He absolutely loved mine when he saw it and it would make a great Father's Day present.

Good luck to all.

I'm stuck on: Trivia Question #3
What single material is Sideshow using for their newest line of ultra-highend Star Wars collectible?:confused: :confused:

Amir
05-28-2007, 08:01 PM
Maybe it's too obvious, I know the material they are using but is it something different then now?

screamingmetal
05-29-2007, 04:22 AM
I've got all but Trivia Question #3.
I think I might have the answer, but technically it doesn't use a single material if you count the base. :confused:

Darklord Dave
05-29-2007, 11:08 AM
I'll be pretty lenient on the trivia - just answer them to the best of your ability. I didn't try to make it too difficult though.

Darklord Dave
05-29-2007, 03:42 PM

05-29-2007, 08:29 PM
Cool, I just figured them out, I wasn't sure one a couple of them, the first one was hard because I don't know hardly anything about marvel and I didn't know what it was called.

screamingmetal
05-29-2007, 09:39 PM
Okay, I sent my answers in.
Thanks to Dave and Sideshow for the contest!

I can't find it either. I don't see any posted by Darth Brant on post located on the CIV main page...

Its because its not a comment he made.

Well, now I'm really confused... If I had to guess, I'd say Thor. He kinda looks like a build-a-block figure...

Kenbenobi
06-06-2007, 10:03 AM

After thinking about it, there is one place I didn't look which would make sense... Like you said, it wouldn't be a posted comment...

Don't just look at the text - pictures are worth a 1000 words.

Thanks. I know Brant is an employee, but figured that he posted somewhere or was quoted. I did look at most of the pictures already, but maybe I missed it. I'll keep looking. Do I need to know what Brant looks like, or will I know it when I see it?

Thanks...

Darth Madden
06-06-2007, 03:44 PM

I'm guessing either one would be ok but you could submit both just to be safe.

Kenbenobi
06-11-2007, 02:03 PM
Did you find it yet?
No, I never did. I looked through every single photo at least twice, and didn't have a clue... I was going to go back for a another round, but never did. Now the contest is over, and I never even got my entry in... I wouldn't have won the main prize, but I still coulda got a shift and gift card. Oh well...

Well depending on weather midnight on the 10th was turning to the 10th or end of the 10th you might be able to turn in what you have and win something.

We'll accept your late entry. The picture became difficult to find after CIV was over. (Here's a small version).

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/prodblog/brant1a.jpg
(That's Galactus...)

For question 2 the answer I was looking for was Darth Vader's Star Destroyer, but I also accepted the Wild Wild West, because the question was a little unclear.

For 3 - "Bronze" was the answer.


AND THE WINNER IS:

Yeah, I agree.. not much right now. I am hoping the chess set shows up there (before the end of the year.) Little too much for me at $50 but $20 would be great.
