Costume Contest Winners
First, another huge thanks to this year's generous sponsors: Master Replicas, Gentle Giant, and Sideshow Collectibles. Also, a big pat on the back to all the readers who participated in the contest! We had some really fantastic entries this year (and some downright scary ones). Without further ado, here are the 2006 Costume Contest winners.

We selected a Top Three in the adult and kids category, along with a runner-up for each, and a couple special prizes for Best Pet and Most Humorous. We'll be contacting the winners via email shortly.

Poll
Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
