Dragonballtoys.com: Scene Stealers II contest July 1 - July 31!

Scene Stealers II

Construct a diorama scene using Dragonball action figures. You are allowed to use any materials you need, with the restriction that your scene include only Dragonball figures, and at least one retail figure (customs are allowed).

Get creative! Don’t just arrange some figures on a desk, get out and build a backdrop! Find a place that looks like the rocky valleys where the Z fighters battle, and put together your scene there! The only limit to what you can use in constructing your scene is your imagination.

The following prizes are supplied by Action-HQ:

Also, each winner will also receive an exclusive Toy Fair 2004 JAKKS Pacific Vegeta action figure with Chibi Vegeta. This figure is one of only 100 produced, and has already skyrocketed on the secondary market, making it quite hard to come by for non-attendees.

Tenchi Muyo GXP Volume 3 – Captain Seina Yamada – Release Date 6/1/04

The old saying, “Home is where the heart is, “ is all wrong. It’s more like, “Home is where the hurt is.’” But all the hard work at Amane’s house has paid off. I’m now ready to begin my training voyages in outer space! Think I’ll run into any pirates? If you don’t then you haven’t been paying attention. I just hope that I don’t put any of my new friends in any real danger. Kirko, Amane, and Erma have been the best. But I can’t help but think that something is wrong, like one of them is hiding something from me.
