Hey all, after winning KingJefferson's contest, I am extremely pleased to see that since the last time I won, the concept of BIG BOX giveaways is still rolling on strong. KJ sent me a box chock full of little weirdos, and my contest will continue that tradition...

Just a few rules, including a new, fun one that I hope will help reignite the Contests forum a bit...

1) You must be a member of the LRG board for at least 30 days, or a member in good standing of the Mini Figure Militia
2) If you win this contest, you too must keep with the tradition of BIG BOX contests. There'll be plenty of great stuff in the box I send that you'll want, but there'll also be lots of stuff you already own or aren't interested in, so just put that stuff in your giveaway box, and load it with more goodies.
3) This contest will run approximately 2 and half weeks, ending on MAY 9. EDIT: With one week left on the original deadline, and ZERO entries as of this edit (2:32PM PST May 2), I'm extending the date to Memorial Day, MAY 25th!
4) The theme of this contest is "5 Old Friends". To enter, reply to this post with a photo including 5 of the toys you've had as far back as you can remember. Some of your oldest, most cherished toys! Friends, if you will.

Here are some of my oldest LRGs as an example:

*BONUS RULE*
If you post your photo on instagram as well using the hashtag #5OldFriends, you'll get one extra entry into the contest!

I don't want to actually enter the contest but I thought I'd give your contest a jump start because I love the theme you picked. There are six muscle in the center of this picture. I rediscovered five of these about a year ago. How they survived me moving multiple times and then my parents moving over the course of three decades I have no idea. I don't know how they got into a box of my kids toys in my garage, they were certainly somewhere in my parents basement prior to that. I came across them shortly after my father passed and I'd like to think he still remembered the time we went to Hills and bought these for me. It was a hard time in my life and these little rubber things gave me something to hold on to. Months later I found the red sheik in the same box. Again, no clue how. They aren't miraculous in any way, but they are my miracle muscle. Hope this doesn't come access as high jacking your contest. If it does just pm me and I'll delete.

Hey atilary, I don't consider your reply to be hijacking at all. I'm just glad the contest helped bring back some fond LRG memories!

If you're new to LRG but are a member of MFM, share your pic under the post I made there on FB and just be sure to note that you are Zargon2099, and I'll def count that as an entry.

So these are some of my childhood survivors, five that are attached to many, many memories. Unfortunately any of the M.U.S.C.L.E figs I had never made it  :D

A few of the faves from when I was little; Astrotrain was my first Transformer ever, Tortoise has always been a fave BB for me, the styracosaurus was one of my earliest Dino Riders, the wind up Godzilla was from my 3rd birthday, and the A-10 was my fave airplane as a kid; these were a powerful team up on the toy battlefield :)
