The Great Fwoosh Custom Giveaway

Face Front, True Believers…Summer’s almost over!

And to kick off the end of the best season of the year with a bang, the Fwoosh Bullpen brings you The Return of the Great Fwoosh Custom Giveaway!






What is it? A contest, Fellow Fwoosher…a game of chance unlike any the world of Fwooshdom has ever seen, giving you the chance to own a one-of-a-kind custom Marvel Legends action figure, hand-crafted and generously donated by one of the Fwoosh’s Finest!!

What’s the prize? The booty for August’s contest is The Rhino, a massive, super-poseable version of Spider-Man’s nastiest foe, painstakingly crafted by the Fwoosh’s own King-Of-Cool himself, GrownNerd


The Nerd is a super-smooth, ultra-slick hipmiester…James Bond, Lando Calrissian, Dean Martin and Hannibal Smith all rolled up into one tuxedo-wearin’, martini-sippin’ customizer. He’s become legendary for his elegant, subtle modifications and re-engineering of factory figures, and The Rhino is no exception. I’m holding the custom in my hands right now, and it is humbling. He’s somehow merged various factory versions of the Rhino into one superior design, but he must’ve used arcane magic to do it, because for the life of me I can’t find any seams or flaws. It is perfect. Seriously, y’all are lucky I don’t just keep this for myself…


Who can enter? Sorry, guests…Only registered Fwooshers can enter this contest! If the thought of owning a free custom makes you drool, register now!
Mods and Admin are also ineligible…rank-n-file FOOF* only!

How do I enter? Simply send an email to [email protected] with the words REVENGE OF THE NERD in the subject header. Be sure to include your Fwoosh name in the email!
