FREE TOY! (OK, now that I have your attention...)

Well, let's cut the crap, I love toys, and if you are reading this, then you probably love toys too.

If you were paying any attention to the last few posts of this blog you'll know sometimes I get stuff for free, and that is awesome. I also say that I believe in Toy Karma all the time. OK, it's time to put my posts where my mouth is.

I have a free toy for one of you. And not just any toy, my friends, I have a very limited and very awesome toy for you. Check this out:



What? A brand new Bionic Bjoern from Scheer-Imagination can be yours at the mere price of just a little brain juice. But more on that in a sec. If you don't know who Bionic Bjoern is you can check the last post or this awesome video:



Did you see that guy's head explode? Cool, right?

Anyway, Hauke Scheer, the man behind the cyborg sent me two Bjoerns, I was gonna keep 'em both, of course, but what would that make me? (Don't answer that if you want to win).

OK, so this is how you do it, it's super easy.

In the comments section of this post you should answer this simple question: "What part of your body would you replace with a machine and why?".

(Just to salvage what's left of your dignity I won't accept the answer "I would replace my dick with a Jackhammer". Mostly because I already created that character when I was 16, his name was Dick Machine, he was a war veteran, a flasher AND a superhero, I know, I'm talking to Mattel right now to kickstart the toy line).

To sum up, leave a comment answering the question "What part of your body would you replace with a machine and why?".

The best answer will be chosen by mister Hauke Scheer himself and I'll ship this awesome toy anywhere in the world. You can leave a maximum of three (3) answers.

And to make this deal even sweeter I will give a runner up (also picked by Hauke) a cyborg character toy too.

If you have a toy blog feel free (and by free I mean feel obliged) to share this with your readers.

In two weeks we'll have a winner. Make me proud!

Until next time.

The part of my brain that creates humor and creativity. That way my robot brain would help me come up with some funny shit to say so I win cool contests like these.

krakit said...

I would have my large
intestines replaced so
I could bend over and
knock out entire crowds
with massive bionic farts. Ha ha ha

ersico said...

this sounds sappy, but i would replace my pancrease with a mechanical one so i could give it to my wife. and that would solve one of her issues :)

WolverineBurger said...

I would replace my jaws with steel so that I could eat bowling balls like apples.

Super-Duper ToyBox said...

Dick Machine?! LOL! :D
that shit is hilarious, Tom!

I would replace my legs> am on my feet all day and do a lot of walking during my shifts at work. Better than they were before. Better, stronger, faster. Smack will be that man!

fishmilkshake said...

What is the forehead good for? Absolutely nothing. I'd make better use of the space and have a frickin' laser beam implanted. First order of business...bad service at retail stores.

ArrantSquid said...

So my verification word is "thedlick", which if read fast isn't what I'd have replaced, but it's still funny.

I'd get my spine replaced since I've blown more discs than Jenna Jameson (just read it fast and it's funny). Then I could go back into the Marines and afford Vinyl Toys again. :)

If we're going non-practical though, I'd totally replace my lower abdomen and have them put a fridge in that bad boy. 12-pack all day!

A new kidney.

I have chronic kidney stones, so one that wouldn't give me days and weeks of pain would be a relief.

Also, it would ease the burden on my family as we aren't exactly rich to begin with and the bills are piling up.

3B said...

Sweet contest! I would replace my upper right leg so I can have a RoboCop-type holster. I guess I would have to replace the lower leg by default... May as well just replace both legs to keep things even. ;)

I'll post a link to the contest on my blog, too!

jboypacman said...

BubbaShelby lead me to this blog and i find the question for this contest to be interesting so i thought i would add my answers....

1)My Thumbs...For enhanced video game playing.

2)My eyes...Night Vision and X-Ray vision would be a must.

3)My Limbs...I want to be like Marvel's Machine Man.

Saranga said...

1) I would replace my back so that my enormous breasts no longer caused me back ache.

2) I would replace my eyes so that I not only didn't need glasses anymore, but I would also have telescopic and microscopic vision. And lasers. Laser eyes baby!

3)I'll think of a third one later.

Bubbashelby said...

I would replace my pinky-toe. Take THAT furniture in the night!

Novelty said...

1. I'll replace my chest with a buzz-saw that could fire when a lever on my back is pressed. I'd like to have a red bat symbol painted on the front of my chest while that's being replaced.

2. Alternatively, I'd like my left arm to be replaced by cybernetic components that glows with a light when activated by depressing a badge on my chest. The cybernetic arm could also fire energy beams and could be upgraded by pressing the badge on my chest a second time.

3. Of course, ultimately, having my skin replaced with a cybernetic armour that would allow me to fly, shoot lasers from my shoulders, tear through things with talons on my heels and be able to survive in the vacuum of space.

Kudos to you if you can identify all 3 characters and their cartoon series.

I don't like to walk away from a challenge Novelty...

First one is Hordak.

Second one is Zachary Foxx from Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers

Third one is Silverhawks (probably Quicksilver).

cas said...

I would replace my legs with robot legs so that I could taunt JP from grandma's boy relentlessly and get a tribe called quest to re-write can I kick it, to be all about me.

Novelty said...

Good job with the identification Freaky. The last one was actually Steelwill (because IIRC, he was shown doing that once in the cartoons). There's no prize for guessing them correctly though.

brobles said...

I would mechanize my stomach so when i ate during thanksgiving i wouldnt be sick the next day.

brian said...

I'd go full body with brain case like in Ghost in the Shell! That way I could upgrade any new components and if any parts got damaged from doing insane crap, I'd just change 'em out!

Saranga said...

3) I'd got for a robotic immune system. I'd never be ill again and my dust mite allergy would be solved and I bet It could do lots of other cool stuff. You just don't know exactly what yet...

That´s an easy one. I would replace my left hand by a bio-electric powered drill. That way I would be able to make any holes my wife request me to do in any surface of our flat in order to hang the latest picture/mirror/lamp. To be fair it would be useful for my shelves too...

Stephen said...

Being a toy collector, I'd replace my rectum with a cash machine so that I could literally poop money on demand, to either A.) support my habit or B.) go cold turkey when no one will accept the money.

turdhole said...

i would replace my bladder because urinating takes up way too much time

Tom Freak said...

Thanks to all the awesome entries. You are the best.

@Turdhole: I'm afraid you entry was a little late. But you make an excellent point anyway. It does take too much time. By the way, I was checking your blog, your art is amazing!
