Dr. McCoy house call contest!
As a kid I did not fully appreciate Dr. McCoy, funny how when you get older these characters are more of a necessity to the mythos than when you where small. This year's Star Trek Movie also helped his cause, as Karl Urban hands down delivered one of the best performances of that movie. McCoy ended up being my favorite character in the movie. So to celebrate this new found love for the good doctor I thought I would have a little contest.
Dr. Mego included a Dr. McCoy in a package that I received from him in preparations for Spockcation, I contacted him and he said it was a gift since I was "sacrificing a toy for the cause" which I thought was really generous. Then I thought how can I use this McCoy. I would be lying if I didn't first think he would make some great parts for a custom Trek figure, but I came to the quick realization that out of all the customs I have tried, a whopping three in about ten years, exactly zero were finished. So a giveaway seemed to be the best solution.
So here's the deal, since I have one to give away, every one that wants to be entered in the drawing give me your best "Dammit Jim! I'm a doctor, not a ______ !" in the comments section of this post, lets keep it at one per person.
Deadline (He's dead Jim!, sorry couldn't resist) for entries will be Midnight Central Time, Sunday, July 12, 2009. Then all entries will be placed in a hat and a winner will be drawn. The winner will be announced sometime Monday, July 13, 2009, and Dr. McCoy will be sent to your home to make a house call. I think a good way to get some EMCE toys out there, so Good luck!
