Our tricksy Mistress of the Web has chosen yet another Spooktacular winner from one of her contests that she had hidden amongst the comments! This one was especially for our EU collectors, and she has chosen a spooky prize from the EU warehouse for the lucky winner. The prize is a long SOLD OUT Silver Screen Phantom of the Opera 12-inch figure! The contest can be found [Here]. The potential winner, randomly chosen from those EU collectors who left their comments for her, is the commenter who posted under the name ‘Rotwang’! This winner will be contacted by email for confirmation and added to the Spooktacular winners list! [Click Here to view Winners]

During our recent Spooktacular event, we challenged our Star Wars collectors to give us a call on our pod cast line and ‘Whine like a Skywalker.’ Well, we only had this competition up for about a day and did not really think we could entice all that many people to tussle over Luke Skywalker and Sith Apprentice Anakin 12-inch figures. We had anticipated to announce the winner of this little challenge on Tuesday, October 31st, however, we were pummeled with over 150 callers leaving over three hours of whining, yelling, acting and singing renditions of all sorts of things. We are only half way through the judging procedure, having just survived a ten minute rendition of ‘Whine like a Skywalker – Bohemian Rapsody’ complete with wacky humming, as well as someone acting out an entire section of A New Hope – all characters included. Our mass Sideshow cry is “Help me, Obi-wan Kenobi!” We plead for mercy and patience as we complete the rest of the judging. Please expect the winners to be announced in the next podcast episode along with clips of the winning whines. We will even include the entries we have categorized as “What the hell was that?!” [Learn about the Contest]

Each of the following costumers will receive a Metaluna Mutant 12-inch figure: V. Williamson as Ghost Rider, D. Bentz as Leatherface, and J. Church as Michael Myers. Plus, each of the following collectors will receive a Vampire Buffy 12-inch figure: D. Henrichs for having a ton of fun, R. Pauluzzi for the complete set-up, and S. Korman for his dedication to Spooktacular – holy crap, look at all those browser windows (not to mention all the diet soda)!!
These winners will be contacted and added to the Spooktacular Winners List. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos, they were all excellent and more than a few provided us with some laughs and smiles!
The Spooktacular 2006 Scavenger Hunt is now completely over! Congratulations to the overall winner, K.

Sideshow’s Mistress of the Web once again needs a Lord of the Rings answer (and this one’s easy because she’s tired): To whom did the oath-breaking King of the Dead swear his allegiance in the War of the Last Alliance? You may just win a King of the Dead polystone statue if you are right! Use the Spooktacular Contest Form [Located Here] and enter your answer and Contest Code: SPKT0607 before 10:00 AM (Pacific Time) on November 1st, 2006.
