The Fwoosh Custom Giveaway Contest…GLORBIFIED!

The Fwoosh Bullpen cuts a swath through summer’s heart with yet another Custom Giveaway…and this time the prize is a custom by Glorbes himself!

Face Front, True Believers…Summer’s here!

And to kick off the hot season of 2008 with a bang, the Fwoosh Bullpen brings you another edition of The GREAT FWOOSH CUSTOM GIVEAWAY!!!

What is it? A contest, Fellow Fwoosher…a contest of the highest magnitude, the fourth (but not the last) of its kind, destined to drive all of Fwoosh Fandom into a frothing frenzy of geeky glee. A contest in which YOU, True Believer, can win a one-of-a-kind custom Marvel Legends action figure, hand-crafted by one of the Fwoosh’s Finest!!

What’s the prize? Heh.

Are you sitting down–?

The booty for this month’s contest is a beautifully crafted, super-poseable DEATH DEALER custom, done by none other than master Fwoosh customizer/re-imagineer/toy designer (and all around sweetheart-of-a-guy) GLORBES!


Glorbes’ name has been bandied about the Fwoosh, the internet itself, and the customizing world as a whole for years…he is recognized as, quite simply, one of the best customizers in the world.

Now’s your chance to own a piece made by true customizing royalty. Frank Frazetta’s most popular creation, as seen through the classic glorbification process…I have to say, on a personal level, holding a Glorbes custom in my hands is downright humbling. Pictures simply do not do the man’s work justice.
