The HORDE of Weirdos Contest: Win cool toys from Ironhaus Productions!


I've been meaning to run a contest through this site for a while, and kept putting it off. Well, the time has finally come. Here is the lowdown on the Little Weirdos "HORDE of Weirdos" Contest, running from now until Monday, July 29!

Thanks to awesome contributions from Jimmy Rommel / Ironhaus Productions--who's been steadily cranking out top-notch toys like Universe of Violence, Gorewad Monsters, HORDE and Micro Bastards--there are some truly kickass prizes up for grabs. Make sure you are following Jimmy's blog and visiting his store often to keep up with all the creations coming out of the Ironhaus lair.

Before we get to the contest rules, let's take a look at the prizes you'll have a chance to win:


FIRST PLACE PRIZE
A complete set of packaged HORDE ToyCon UK 2013 exclusive figures, sculpted by Jimmy and produced by TruTek as part of the larger HUSTLE line. This includes all three figures: Horde-Ape (packaged individually) plus Mer-Mace and Man & Eel (packaged together). These figures are cast in a slightly pearlescent flesh/pink rubber and are all-around amazing!


SECOND PLACE PRIZE
An assortment of four Ironhaus rubber mini monsters, pulled from Gorewad Monsters, Micro Bastards and even Jimmy's custom sculpt of an unreleased Fistful of Aliens figure, Dr. Dark!


THIRD PLACE PRIZE
One of my personal favorite figures from the Universe of Violence line--Cedargief--in orange rubber!



CONTEST RULES:
Now, here's what you have to do to get in the running:

3. BONUS: Get other people to follow this site and get them to say you sent them.

Entries will be accepted until 8 p.m. CST on Monday, July 29th. Then, I will compile all the entries and randomly select winners for the first, second and third place prizes. Results will be announced on this site on Tuesday, July 30th, after which winners will need to email me their mailing addresses.

Thanks for reading and good luck to all!

  1. A toy-line to get showcased that you haven't already mentioned? This will be tough! Is something Transformers out of the question?

    1. Not out of the question at all. Even if you come up with something you don't think would be a perfect fit, it will still count.

    2. I humbly suggest a Beast Wars entry, or the Canadian Battle Beast knock offs: War Monsters!

  2. I agree with Adam^ - very tough! How about some Dino-Riders or Snaileans? Although they are a little bigger than the usual. Z-bots could also work :)

  3. You're definitely going to want to cover the upcoming Sucklord series S.U.C.K.L.E. when they come out. They're kitschy and cool, and just about to finish being fully backed via Kickstarter. Speaking of kitschy- you should cover the vending machine phenomenon known as HOMIES!

  4. I love your blog-what about those little rubber Spiral Zone figures? Maybe you done 'em though

  5. I have some Street Fighter vending bootlegs that are even smaller than the ones you have on here, I'd like more info on those!

  6. How 'bout Yolanda's Toxic Crusaders?
    Have you mentioned them here yet??

  7. Good suggestions so far! Also, for anyone else going to enter, suggestions for posts on specific parts of a larger line are cool too (for example, a specific series/subset from the Monster in My Pocket line).

  8. Hey man! You have literally every single type of minifigure I could think of but ONE. How about the Adventure Island keshi - Eric Nilla's into em too. I'd love to find some for myself but the ones on eBay are EXPENSIVE! Seen em? Maybe covered em here somewhere I just didn't see? Because you are COMPREHENSIVE! Hah. Keep up the killer work! :)

    1. I was hoping to see a right up on the Japanese Transformers DECOY mini figs, with the more RARER and HTF color/fig (more expensive)!
      Jimmy Rommel sent me here because I am friends with him on FB and he hates me (his words, not mine).
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Damn I just went back in your posts and see on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 you did an ID post on Decoys, nothing on the rareness though or prices ;)

    2. Suggestions for extended/additional coverage of a line I already posted about counts too!

      Delete
  11. Anything more on MIMP is always welcome. Have you covered Mini Boglins yet? They were a favourite of mine back in the day. Or Bad Eggz Bunch?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Have you done anything on Snailiens?

  13. Long time lurker first time poster...

    B.U.N.N.Y.W.I.T.H. get any love on this site yet?

    Keep up the good work man!

  14. What about weirdball wrestlers I don't know if you've covered them or not.

    ReplyDelete
  15. How about War Planets? Though the sets were variations of a basic model (Elemental planet,+ vehicles + infantry + heavier hitters), the little details were diverse enough to be more than enjoyable. And the premise was rather interesting.

  16. Thanks for your excellent site, I visit often and it never occurred to me to follow it.

    Would love to see a feature on Gamoja, a line Moose released between Fistful of Power and Trash Pack!

  17. Cool contest. I suggest some current vending machine capsule toy mini figures like Neo Neons or Buggyboos.

  18. Neclos Fortress Finger Puppets!!!

  19. I see you covered Dragon ball Vending Machine bootlegs, but no actual Dragon Ball Keshi.

    Love the site, and really excited about this contest. Those figures are really great. One figure series I don't think you've covered yet are AWA Mini Mashers.

  23. Longtime lurker here, thanks for bringing us one of the most interesting (and frequently updated) minifig blogs out there :)

    I would love to see you cover some SNK or Capcom Keshis in the near future, or perhaps even some Archer Spacemen (bootlegs, reissues or originals).

  24. Hey, Sun Collector sent me. Would love to see Sandbaggers customs reviewed here =)
