Do you want a chance to win this awesome new poster by artist, toy collector, and friend of the site Christopher Lee? The ink has barely dried on his latest masterpiece but he’s letting me give three posters away to coincide with an interview I’ll be running later this week. Read on for details on the contest; this will be a special one for you TMNT fans!
If you follow Chris on Instagram (and you should), you’ve been lucky enough to see him post these TMNT characters over the last few months. Every day I would open it up waiting to see what action figures he had tackled next, and now it’s finished. From Chris:
200 hours later, this print is ready for press! Every single TMNT figure up through 1991 (withholding the strange and wacky Turtle variants) is represented in this poster.
It’s not drawn in my normal style (which was part of the challenge I suppose). All of these characters are inspired by their action figure counterparts, right down to the lavender pants on Casey Jones 🙂
The poster is 27″ by 39″ and has the classic design of a retro TMNT card back, complete with Pizza Points! If you were a fan of he TMNT toys growing up this poster will be a nostalgic gold mine, and if you’d like a chance to win one here’s what you have to do.
Since Chris’ poster celebrates the TMNT toys, this will be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Photo Contest! The contest will be open for one week, ending on Tuesday, October 23rd at 6:00pm EST.
All you have to do is take a photo of your Ninja Turtle toy collection and submit it in the comments on this post using Disqus’ built-in photo uploading feature by the deadline and you’ll be entered to win.
Chris and I will pick three winners not based on the size or impressiveness of your collection, but based on the creativity/aesthetic quality/awesomeness of the photo you enter.
You could have two action figures and win because your photo tickles our fancy more than someone with a super rare Scratch MOC or fifty foot soldiers. Recreate the last supper, photograph your toys in a weird location, or anything else.
We’ll pick our three favorite photos and the winners will receive a free poster, plus some retro TMNT trading cards and some Top Hat Sasquatch swag. I’ll also post a gallery of all the photo entries I get after the contest is over.
Good luck, and check back very soon for a cool interview with Chris about his work, his insane toy collection, and more!
Important Update: – I forgot to mention this, but when you enter, make sure you comment using a real email address or we won’t be able to contact you if you win!
Update #2 – The winners should be posted on Monday, October 29th!
