PostSubject: Imperial Gunnery 7 for 7 Contest !! We're in a pickle!! ++ANSWERS AND WINNERS ANNOUNCED++   Tue Mar 15, 2016 11:35 am

Now that we are Phish free, let's do this contest!! A good friend to the gunnery (@Lenn_guy) has what I can only call a Masterpiece of Vintage Art!!!!

He's made a pickle jar full of vintage figures! This jar has only vintage, and is filled to the brim. When we saw this we knew a contest had to be done!!! Look at the pictures below for a 360 degree view of the jar. We are going to ask 7 questions about what's in here! Contest will be open until March 31st. You get to answer all the questions. First correct answer will be deemed the winner, or closest to the actual number. If two people are tied, we will flip a coin.

Each winner will get a special TIG gift, courtesy of our own @Trappedtexan Bryan!!







1) Total Figures in the Pickle Jar

2) Total figures from the first 21

3) Number of Luke, Leia and Han's (all versions)

4) Number of Ewok's

5) Number of Droids

6) Number of Character's who list The Empire as their employer (Bounty Hunters are Self Employed)

7) Total amount of accessories you'd have if every figure was complete (To be fair, we consider an accessory anything that came with the figure (or can be removed from it). In the case of a wearable item it must be able to come off and be put back back without damage. Squidhead Cape and 2-1B Mask would be good, but ERG Cape wouldn't). We will give one hint here, there is NO removable Limbs C-3PO.

Good luck!! Post your answers below!!


*********************************ANSWERS AND WINNERS BELOW************************************

Okay - Congratulations on a game well played!!! We got 4 out 7 answers right on the money!  

Here are the figures, laid out, from the jar (get ready!!!)




1) Total Figures in the Pickle Jar

Answer:75

2) First 21 Figures

Answer:19 (No Snaggletooth, Boba Fett)

3) Number of Luke, Leia and Han's (all versions)

Answer: 16

4) Number of Ewok's

Answer: 3

5) Number of Droids

Answer: 10

6) Number of Character's who list The Empire as their employer

Answer: 12

7) Total amount of accessories you'd have if every figure was complete (To be fair, we consider an accessory something that came with the figure. In the case of a wearable item it must be able to come off and be put back back without damage. Squidhead Cape would be good, ERG Cape would not)

Answer: 103


First correct answer gets it. If nobody hit it we did closest to the number. In a tie we flipped a coin. One person won 2 categories, but it's one prize per so we awarded the first question answered right.

1) Winner: Hellhippie (Shanester guessed 77 and Hellhippie guessed 73. Correct answer was 75 so we flipped a coin)

2) Winner: Jackroni at exactly 19 (kudos to Teeksolo for also guessing 19)

3) Winner: Symes coming closest at 16

4) Winner: Thall Joban at exactly 3 (Kudos to 13 others who also guessed 3)

5) Winner: Longshot at exactly 10

6) Winner: Darththomas at exactly 12 (Kudos to Symes who actually guessed 12 first but he won #3 already)

7) Winner: Teeksolo coming closest at 95

Please PM Trappedtexan with your mailing address. For overseas friends we're working on a local delivery from the UK so updates to follow

This is what I was talking about in the earlier thread.  I have shown the prizes to a few guys (mods, admin, devs, and 1 other) and everyone liked them.  To my knowledge nothing like this has been offered before.  For now the prizes remain a secret so if you want something shipped to you free, make some guesses.  It doesn't cost you anything but getting your brain to work a bit.What a Face

And that last question is hard. Twisted Evil   I had the list of figures and still took me a while to figure it out. unsure

Good Question - I spoke to Lord Vader, he considers them independent contractors. To be an employee you need to qualify for health, dental and 401K savings.

Lots of you guys I think must be coming to us from facebook. Forums are a bit less fast paced but are chock full of information. We do have some things that operate similar to facebook so check out this thread:

http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t8415-posting-photos-to-the-forum-and-other-useful-topics

You can tag people and get notifications as well as post photos from your mobiles. I myself don't use facebook so I cant tell you how similar these things are to it, but they are neat little features that we didn't have around on forums previously.

Also in case you missed my earlier post feel free to look around and get involved here. We love the hobby and have a lot of great guys around. Here is a good thread to start with and let us know a bit about you:

1) 55 figures (in total)
2) 14 figures (in first 21)
3) 8 figures (of Luke, Leia and Han)
4) 2 ewoks
5) 7 droids (including two R2 variants)
6) 7 figures are empire employees (including the emperor, and bounty hunters don't count since they're in it for the bounty!)
7) 70 accessories in total

Well that was good fun, and really tested my knowledge of the figures. I must admit I had to resort to writing them down to sort it out though.

Cheers!
