Who doesn’t love free stuff?
The correct answer is: nobody, especially when said free stuff is Star Wars toys. That’s right – your least-favourite geek news site has teamed up with Fun.com to give away three awesome action figures from the Black Series: Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in their Stormtrooper kicks from A New Hope – and Chewbacca, who unfortunately never got the chance to dress up and look all pretty.
Neat, huh? Kinda wish I could enter this competition.
In this crummy modern age, the traditional rules of a giveaway are to retweet something and follow the site on Twitter and/or Facebook – but that’s boring as shit, and we’re cooler than that (or at least that’s what we tell ourselves). Another common theme is simply asking a yes/no question, and picking a winner at random, which was our original plan. However, that’s boring too, and all questions regarding Stormtroopers are either really easy or super-hard. So we settled for something a bit more interesting.
Fanboys and fangirls are famous for petty, rage-fuelled arguments about their favourite characters, often pitting them against each other or writing long and detailed pieces of fan-fiction which see them making sweet, sweet love. That’s exactly what we want you to do – err, the first one.
If Kylo Ren, Master of the Knights of Ren, were to meet his ultimate idol, Darth Vader – and, for the sake of this question, they were to do battle – who would win, and why? Would Kylo’s savagery and angst overcome Anakin Skywalker’s precision and super-high Midichlorian count? Give us a great explanation and we’ll give you toys!
You can make your explanation long, short, funny, ridiculous, epic – whatever, just describe to us which Dark Side user would come out on top and why.
How to enter? Simple. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and write away!
The competition is open from today (Monday 25th January) for a week – until Monday 1st February. So geek-up, readers, and get writing!
