August Product Review Contest Winners Announced

Marvel Spider-woman Bishoujo Statue review at TFAW.comEvery month, our customers submit hundreds of product reviews that help others determine how great (or flat-out bad) certain comics, graphic novels, and other collectibles are. We took a look at the reviews that were submitted in August and are awarding $25 gift certificates as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. And the winners are (insert drum roll here):

Our first contest winner is Peter all the way down in Australia! Peter wrote a couple really great reviews for a few statues last month — his review for the Marvel Spider-Woman Bishoujo Statue caught our eye:

WOW! Another stunning figure from our friends at Kotobukiya . . . again exceptionally vibrant colors make this figure stand out really well amongst other bishoujo models. Goes well under Sideshows new J. Scott Campbell spidey statue as well! Easy to say satisfaction guaranteed, sure to be a sell out.

MPH #1 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is Kaela from Santa Rosa, CA. She had this to say about Black Widow #8:

Black Widow’s 2014 run is easily becoming my favorite of the year. Phil Noto’s artwork beautifully captures Natasha’s world & is a stylized alternative to what is typical for Marvel. Edmondson’s writing continues to bring us the Black Widow movie that we may never get. Plus, it’s always enjoyable seeing Natasha and the Winter Soldier in the same panel.

Marvel Grab Bag graphic novel review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Hector from New York dropped by to share his thoughts about the DC Comics Cover Girls Poison Ivy Statue:

Awesome quality for the price. The DC Comics Cover Girls statues all seem to be a good buy. I really like this piece and look forward to owning more from this line.

Thanks so much to everyone who wrote reviews last month. You’re helping people decide what to get (or what to avoid) next.

Remember, you don’t have to write a novel to win. Product reviews can be short and sweet, or highly detailed — as long as they help other customers, that’s what we’re looking for. So submit your reviews and help your fellow collectors sort out the “HOT” from the “NOT”! Who knows, you may be one of next month’s winners.

HOW TO SUBMIT A PRODUCT REVIEW:
It’s simple! Just visit any product page and look for this:

Click on it and our product review form will appear in a popup. Just fill out the pertinent information and submit your review, and you’re done! We’ll take a look at your review and get it up on the product page soon thereafter!
