Today's prize is a JLU Hawkman 3-pack.


If you don't remember how I do my giveaways here is a little reminder.
Explain why you deserve the figure.
Do not post if you have one already.
You can make the stories completely outrageous or truthful and sincere, doesn't really matter.

Good luck to everyone!

When I was young I had a Hawkman. A Super Powers one. My friend pushed me accidentally and it fell into the sewer. I wanted to go and get it but my overprotective mother wouldn't let me. I cried for days and for weeks, months after that felt like I had lost the most valuable thing. Children can experience grave loss from the littlest thing. Being a kid, unaware of a collector community, I was never able to find one again.

2 years ago I started collecting the Justice League, soon realizing I could make it as if it was the old Super Powers line. I now had nearly everyone from Series 1 and 2 of the old line reflected in the JLU line. Hal was impossible to get so i made him my first custom.

Of course now I found i was missing the one figure that symbolized loss for me back then. I thought it would never come, so I applied my crappy custom abilities to make one from Wildcat. Of course, it turned out like crap. Crap as it may be, it's still the placeholder for the long-lost figure in my JLU hero shelf.

*See crappy Hawkman custom at the very end of second row.

Once I get a Hawkman, I can finally get closure from that painful experience when I was a kid and feel like I've somehow come full circle.

Here are my top ten reasons I should be considered for the hawkman 3 pack

10. I've been paying it forward for years giving away the extra supes and batmen in my three packs.

9. There are no Big Lots in Chicago (where I live)

8. You've been sending me free toys in the mail over and over again in past lives.

7. My Vixen, Hawkgirl and Green Lantern are waiting for him to complete their love trapazoid.

6. Can you ever have enough Rocket Reds?

5. While in high school I had braces made of "ninth" metal

4. I plan to use him in my re-enactment of the Eagle man commercials. "Look at those low rates!"

3. The Atom is very lonely.

2. Two words: Please and Thanks.

1. My father raised chickens.

I still need a Hawkman.
Since I already have the other two figures, you could keep them and cut down on the shipping cost by weight.

Hawkman was my #1 want from season 5 of JL. Hawkman proved to be the #1 want of the site when I ran the 1st AFI-JLU poll (we didn't let people vote for Question, Capt Atom, etc then).

I have not seen a new figure at retail since Lightray/Nemesis and Shade/Huntress II (I did get the Ray/Shareya pack).

I hope you will consider me for the Hawkman figure.
superfriend.

Well, I want Hawkman but I got the only one with a 'good' paint job and matching skin-tone at Big Lots for a fellow collector.

And I'll give the two double figures to some of the kiddies in my family. (Assuming that they aren't gonna give 'em lead poisoning. :P )

But to whoever it goes to, best of luck.

JJ

I need a Hawkman because my Target NEVER gets the new figures in. My collection looks so empty without him and Shayera's getting lonely. :( Also, my closet Target is 45 minutes away so I can't check it as often as I'd like. Besides, Carter is one of my favorite DC characters after Batman.

I don't have Hawkman yet, but Christophe's plea takes the cake!

Agreed. I DO have a Hawkman but Christophe's plea had me nearly in tears. I know how it feels to lose a cherished toy. There's one stuffed animal I had as a kid that I lost that I would do anything short of selling my soul to see again. It's a very real pain as a kid and it doesn't lessen when you become an adult.
