The Great Fwoosh Custom Giveaway: January 2007

Face Front, True Believers…it’s a brand new year!

And to kick off 2007 with a bang, the Fwoosh Bullpen brings you another edition of the Great Fwoosh Custom Giveaway… this time with a two-figure set and an added bonus!



What is it? A contest, Fellow Fwoosher… a game of chance unlike any the Fwoosh has ever seen, because this one gives you two one-of-a-kind custom Marvel Legends custom action figures, hand-crafted and generously donated by one of the Fwoosh’s Finest!!

What’s the prize? The booty for January’s contest is a Dave Cockrum Tribute Set, a pair of super-cool, super-poseable Black Tom Cassidy and Juggernaut customs, painstakingly crafted by the Fwoosh’s own Stream-of-consciousness guru, Sexyvonpoopy! Vonpoop is a huge fan of the legendary X-Men artist Dave Cockrum, who sadly passed away in 2006…and he constructed this set based on Cockrum’s work in Uncanny X-Men #102. His Juggernaut is massive, more a BAF than a standard figure, and features a removable helmet; Black Tom comes with his trademark shillelagh and plenty of sibling rivalry.

As an added bonus, the winner will also receive Marvel Masterworks: The Uncanny X-Men Volume 2, the trade paperback reprinting UXM # 101 – 110, also donated by Sexyvonpoopy!
