Funko’s May the 4th Be With You Contest — Still Going On!

If you got caught up too much in Star Wars Day celebrations — or you hate “May the Fourth” so much you turned off your phone and computer for 24 hours — and missed Funko’s “May the 4″ Contest, don’t worry — you still have time to enter!

Funko is giving away four prototypes from their Pop!: Star Wars line.  One winner will receive prototypes of The Emperor, Biker Scout, Bossk, and Luke Skywalker Hoth.  These are the prototypes made to test out the characters and features, and are limited to five prototypes.  That’s it.  Five.  In the entire world (or galaxy).  This is some pretty limited stuff here.


So how do you enter?  Here, I’ll let Funko themselves answer this:

We want to see your Star Wars pride!

Get Drawn Into Matt Kindt’s MIND MGMT!


MILWAUKIE, OR, AUGUST 12—The recent release of MIND MGMT #13 kicked off an all-new arc of this critically acclaimed series, currently in its second year at Dark Horse. To celebrate, Dark Horse and series creator Matt Kindt are offering fans a very special opportunity.

By simply Liking the official MIND MGMT Facebook page, you will be entered into a drawing to, well, “enter a drawing.” That’s right: One lucky fan will actually be drawn into the seventeenth issue of the ongoing series! If you are one of the readers who were ahead of the curve on this and have already liked this page, you are already eligible!

MIND MGMT follows a young journalist who stumbles onto a much bigger story than she bargained for while investigating a bizarre case of memory loss on a commercial flight. Her ensuing journey involves weaponized psychics, hypnotic advertising, talking dolphins, and seemingly immortal pursuers, as she attempts to find the flight’s missing passenger, the man who was MIND MGMT’s greatest success—and its most devastating failure. But in a world where people can rewrite reality itself, can she trust anything she sees?
