    For Immediate Release

    OWI, Mezco Toyz, and NBC Join Forces For Heroes Contest

    NY- Fans of the popular NBC series Heroes are eagerly awaiting the release of the Mezco Toyz action figures of their favorite characters from the award winning series. Collectors are pre-ordering the figures online in record numbers and the prototypes, on display at NBC’s Rockefeller Center headquarters, draw crowds of onlookers who pose next to their custom display case for a quick photo. The 1st set of Heroes action figures is set to be released in June 2008, but one lucky fan will get them early thanks to The-OWI.com, a Heroes fan site. By simply e-mailing pictures of themselves dressed as their favorite Hero, fans can enter the website’s Show Us Your Heroes contest. In April, judges from the website along with representatives of Mezco Toyz, and NBC will select a grand prize winner who will receive a complete set of unpainted "test shot" figures. Test shots are quickly becoming one of the hottest collectibles in the toy world due to their extreme scarcity, only a handful are produced and many are destroyed. Several test shots of Mezco Toyz are on display in museums, including New York’s prestigious Museum Of The Moving Image.
    Additionally, NBC will be supplying several additional prizes, to be revealed at a later date, for several runner up winners.

    The OWI, Mezco Toyz, and NBC hope that by requirng fans to participate and send a photo rather than simply send an e-mail or postcard, the prize will be awarded to a true Heroes fan.

    To enter the contest visit:

    Heroes action figures by Mezco Toyz are available for pre-order online, and will be in Toys"R"Us and other fine retailers in June.

    Well thanks for feedback but considering there are ONLY 5 sets like that in existence, it is actually quite rare and will be worth money as a collectors item immediatley...it really isn't 'crappy'.

    Mezco has 1
    NBC has 1
    Museum sets 2
    Contest winner 1

    You dont get much more rare than that.

    The only reason i would like to win this prize is because they could end up being worth a lot of money but the toys themselves are pretty crappy indeed.
