NEWS: Figure of the Day to Return with Relaunch Contest

We brought you the sad news earlier this month that the rather awesome Figure of the Day had decided to call it a day. We've now learned that the site is to relaunch under new management.

From the Figure of the Day Facebook Page:

Hello, fellow collectors! As you have heard, Figure of the Day has come under new management and will be relaunching soon! This new management would be me, Jordan, and I am very excited to get this great website back up and running. My goal is to provide all of you with some great figures at great prices and create a true collecting community.

The site is offline right now, but we are planning on getting everything back up and running soon, along with some exciting surprises for all you loyal costumers. Keep an eye open for updates and feel free to let us know what you would like to see from Figure of the Day in the future. Once again, thank you all for your support!

And if that isn't enough to get you excited, Jordan has also announced a new contest that could net the winner some very cool toy-related prizes, including a one-off figure of their own design!

To kick off the new Figure of the Day, we thought it would be great to have our very own superhero to introduce the super deals we give! Batman is a little too busy saving Gotham for this job, so we need our own hero around here. That's where you come in!

As a relaunching contest, we'd like you the fans to message in your ideas for a Figure of the Day superhero. Simply send us a message with the subject line "FoD Hero Contest" and include a name and a brief description including powers of your proposed hero. No artwork is necessary, but it's always fun to see! I will be picking the top 5 ideas and the community will vote on those to pick a winner. That superhero will become our mascot and the creator will get a professionally made one of a kind 1:12 scale action figure of this hero along with some other Figure of the Day goodies!

Good luck, everybody!
