Everyone loves a caption contest, but here's one with a difference. Introducing "Toy Lines!" - The AFB Caption Contest!

Your task will be to provide captions or speech bubbles that go along with photos of action figures that I'll be posting.

There will be four rounds of "Toy Lines!", each lasting 10 days, starting with the Round One Pic I'm posting today.

The winners of each round will be decided by me, and once all four rounds are over, the four winning photos will be put up to a vote here on the site for the AFB Readership to decide the ultimate winner.

The overall winner will receive a Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Eternian Palace Guards Two Pack. The prize will be an unopened version still sealed in its white mailer box.

Here are the basic rules:

You are allowed to save your own copy of the photo for each round and edit it to present your entry.

Only one entry per person per round is allowed. You may enter each round, even if you have won a previous round.

You do not have to give "lines" to every toy in the photo. How you script it is up to you!

Entries must be posted at the AFB Forum in the thread for each round - Round One will be in the next post in this thread.

Every 10 (or so) days I will announce the winner for the previous round here at the blog and post a new photo for a new round.

Once we have completed four rounds, I will post the four winning photos here at the blog and post a poll for AFB readers to vote for the winner. This will be a blind poll and will run for 15 days.

The reader vote will determine the winner. The winner will receive the MOTUC Eternian Palace Guards Two-Pack with standard shipping. The winner may add express shipping or insurance at his/her own expense.

Your task is to be creative and funny! Knowing the great group we have here I know we will see some great entries!

Stay tuned for the Round One Photo!

Another great one!

By the way, if you need help with speech bubbles, try this:

http://mediamilitia.com/thought-and-speech-bubbles-pack-104-free-vectors-and-images/

It's a free download of a whole bunch, with transparent backgrounds. Handy!
