UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. Winner has been announced. +Geeky Mama is taking home all this glorious swag. Thanks to all those who participated. We’ll have more giveaways in the future. Stay tuned. 

The wait is over. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is upon us. Was all the hype and excitement leading up to the films release all it was cracked up to be? Well, in short, YES! We promise that all that hype is well-deserved.  It’s an irreverent interstellar thrill ride offering flavor, heart, humor, charm, totally boss soundtrack, action galore, and a gun toting talking raccoon with an attitude problem. What more could you possibly want? So many things working for it. It’s as if Marvel climbed to the top of Mt. Sinai and said to God “We Present You This” and all was good in the world. We can’t say enough good things about it. Just shut up and see it already. If you want to read more on how sweet the movie is, check out our review HERE.

In celebration of the films release, and promoting ourselves a little bit, we’re giving away a Guardians of the Galaxy Prize Pack courtesy of Hasbro Toys. What’s in the swag bag and how do you get it? Rocket on down to find out.

Hasbro is the premier supplier in toys and collectibles for the mass market. A blockbuster film comes around and you can be rest assured Hasbro will have a variety of plastic play things fillin’ up the toy shelves. With Guardians of the Galaxy blowin’ up the joint with pure awesomeness, waiting in the wings is Hasbro and their themed line of Guardians toys. From figures, to vehicles, to costumed shenanigans, Hasbro offers a good selection for all budget and interest levels.

This venerable toy company sent us a preview box of sampling but a few of their large array of Guardians of the Galaxy products. Have a look see at the gallery below:


Since we don’t have the heart to take anything out of the package (this Nerd Bastards writer is a collector at heart), we figured this collection of plastic fun should be awarded to one of our adoring readers. *Note: I did play with the rocket raccoon figure with big blastin’ gun action. I think I’ve pushed the “try me” button 500 times already (have fun replacing the battery to whoever wins this).

What exactly do I need to do to win? Simple! Seriously, it’s the easiest thing ever.

– Nerd Bastards is now on Google+. Simply add us (HERE) to your circles, and your add counts as an entry. 

See how stupid simple that is? Sorry to those who don’t have or like Google+, but hey, maybe now is the time you give it a try. We were hesitant too at first, but it’s actually pretty spiffy. Anyways, one random winner will be selected on Wednesday 8/8/2014. The bevy of loot will be mailed out – free of charge – via standard delivery and should be received to the lucky lil bastard or bastardette within 1-2 weeks.

Got it? Now, what are you waiting for? Start spreading the Nerd Bastards Google+  gospel. DO IT NOW!
