“Toy collector, what is best in life?”
“To crush the scalpers. Get the good stuff before them. Hear their lamentations and excuses.”
That is good. That is good. And we’re going to assist you in doing it.
But first things first. Hey, everyone, isn’t this 1/3 scale Conan the Barbarian by Pop Culture Shock Toys pretty much the most dominant collectible you’ve ever seen? Fully sculpted by hand (no laser scanning whatsoever), this is apparently the first Arnold Schwarzenegger replica that the ex-Governator approved without any notes or changes requested. With every little vein visible, it is also by far the most pumped…pause, clap…UP that any Arnold toy has ever been. Plus the sword is real metal, and the clothes fabric. There’s even a black-and-white war paint version, with bloody sword and fuzzier pants, a variant with purchasing details yet to be announced.
Preorders for the Cimmerian conqueror begin June 6th at Pop Culture Shock’s site, but how would you like to win one before they even go on sale? This is clearly a rhetorical question–there may be a riddle of steel, but to paraphrase Winston Zeddemore, when somebody asks you if you are wanting a godly collectible for free, you say YES!
So then all that remains is to tell you how to do that, and it’s easy. Just click the link below any time between now and Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at 9 a.m. Pacific, and we will choose two winners at random. Then, once all items start shipping, a two-and-a-half foot tall Arnold will be questing his way towards your house, but unlike Thulsa Doom, you can be sure he’s there to help. Specifically, to help make your pad look amazing. Check our image gallery to get a sense of just how amazing.
How badly do you need this barbarian? Would you buy a Thulsa Doom or Valeria to stand next to him? Tell us what is best in your collecting life below!
