    Grayskulling contest! Win a 2014 subscription!

    First there was planking, now there's Grayskulling...

    Take a photo of yourself holding something over your head, he-Man style, and maybe win a free subscription. Could be very fun!

    Mattel sounds pretty confident that the 2014 sub is going to go through . . . Why else would they market a contest like this?

    5. PRIZES: Prize consists of a complimentary one year subscription to 2014 Club Eternia® and the Winner’s entry posted on MattyCollector.com. No transfer, substitution, or cash equivalent of prizes allowed except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value if a prize cannot be awarded as described for any reason. The 2014 Club Eternia® will be comprised of 12 monthly figures with an approximate retail value (“ARV”) of $300 (12 figures @ ARV of $25/figure = ARV $300), 4 beasts/variants/multi- packs (1 each with ARVs at $25, $38, $38, $40 = $141), 1 “year-end” item (1 @ ARV of $35), and a $25 ARV membership fee that covers one club-exclusive figure. The total ARV is $501 and includes the cost of shipping to a single location.

    It looks like they can substitute for a prize of equal or greater value

    That's not really a "win", if you ask me, but rather the source of constant stress and headaches !

    Checking every month that DR's inept services sent you the right figure(s), dealing with the customer disservice every time there was an issue or a blunder, dealing with bad postal services, erratic postal ways, crazy shipping prices and customs (for international fans) is FAR from being a "win" in my book...

    Why is it you feel the need to be negative about everything?

    I'm NOT "negative" about "everything". I voice my opinion on a forum, which is the precise goal of a forum or message board ! Sometimes my opinion may seem positive, sometimes it may not seem so. Being on a forum, I guess you should try to live with it. You should learn to respect other people's opinions.

    It's fine that you voice your opinion. Just as they voiced their opinion in saying your "opinion" is always negative. They want to know why. Even this reply came off as rude and arrogant. There is no need for it.

    I get told the same thing....if people actually read my posts they would see otherwise....but people always read into things what they want....

    Many times here.....Being realistic = negativity....if you're not doing a happy dance over what others think is acceptable or no big deal....you're being negative....

    Not thinking like others is frowned upon....
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Shouldn't the act be called "Power Swording", "He-Manning" (or "She-Ra-ing") or some other such term more specific to the action rather than non-specific "Grayskulling"? I would figure Grayskulling would involve standing still with your mouth open...which would invite all sorts of problems.

    Okay, I read posts from you all the time and I really don't feel like you come off as a negative poster. Others do.

    Sadly, I had the same reaction as Prahvus. I'd love to enter the contest and save some money if I win, but having to deal with DR again is enough to make me pass. It's not being negative, it's simply a reflection of how poor a reputation the site has unfortunately earned.

    That's a good question but if you are disqualified for posting the picture, it completely goes against what all of these "planking" type photos are all about. That being said, this is Mattel and legal...so your guess is as good as mine until we hear from Mattel/TG

    I had a lot of fun "Grayskulling". My wife and I came up with some very creative ideas and therefor I entered 5 times (as you were allowed to enter once per day).
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Yeah, I would share them, but afraid I would be disqualified so I'm going to wait for more info from matty. It would be cool if matty shared some of the entries with us.

    I entered last night as well. Didn't realize you could enter more than once or I probably woulda! It was entertaining last night. My friend who has no interest in the toys even entered. Told me when he wins I can just pick them up at his house.
