Springfield Speaks Contest (Part 2)

February 20, 2012 | By More

Figure of the Day has returned as a contest sponsor to TVFT, and I have to say I couldn’t be happier to bring everybody a chance to win a really great set of GI Joe figures.

The theme of this set is Cobra. Packed with some favorite army builders and a couple of updates to classic characters, I wish I could win this one for myself. The set contains a Hazard Viper,  Techno Viper, Cobra Trooper, Snake Eyes and Firefly. What’s not to love?


And how do you win is cornucopia of Cobra?

Glad you asked. If you remember the” Talk to the Skull and Win!” contest, it’s the same idea. Comment on the photo at the top of the page, and you are entered! We enjoyed the comments so much on the Bart Simpson Treehouse picture from the last contest, we wanted to go back to Springfield.

Once a week between February 15th and March 4th, we’ll post a photo to comment on. This one is the second of three. You get one entry per comment per picture. (Comment on all three and you get three entries.) You must use a valid email for us to contact you with. We will pick the winner the week of March 5th. The winner will be picked at random from all valid entries by Mrs. Nerd.

The fine print. At this time Figure of the Day only ships to the US, so the contest is only open to US residents. Also, it is not open to the staff of TVFT or their relatives (Sorry, Mom).

  1. Joe (Firefly_Cobra) says:

    Hail Cobra Commander! The great snake rules forever! …….. oh sorry…… I’m here for my HISS driving test.

  2. Baroness? Because the DMV wasn’t evil enough?

  3. Jason Lee says:

    Baroness: Is that mask prescription?

  4. Clutch says:

    Baroness: Commander… perhaps it would help if you removed your face plate first?

    CC: You seem to forget who runs this FINE organization, my dear Baroness… NOW, GIVE ME A PASSING GRADE OR YOU WON’T HAVE ENOUGH SALARY TO COVER YOUR OWN PRESCRIPTIONSSS!!!

  5. Nik says:

    Baronesssssss?! You work here? What do you mean you can’t realeasessssssss this HISSSSSSS Tank from impound?!!?!?!!?! I demand to ssssssssssee your manager!!


  6. I have always loved that two of my favorite properties use the same ambiguous location. It’s definitely ripe for crossover.

  7. Engineernerd says:


    Part of me wants to do periodic comics for this. Maybe one of these days.


  8. Gerald says:

    Cobra Commander: What do you mean Paper beats Rock?!!! I always thought it was the other way around?

  9. Brent Brown says:

    Sir, you HAVE to put something down for “eye color!”

  10. CardedHeroes says:

    DMV-Viperess: “Sir, I need 3 forms of ID, and nothing with CLASSIFIED on it will do.”


    DMV-Viperess: “Do you perhaps have a bill with your current address?”

    CC: “NO, I…wait. I have a water bill out in the car…will that do?”

  11. FakeEyes22 says:

    HISS Tank Driver to Air Viper: “If Butterface and Professor Pegwarmer up there don’t stop flirting, we’re never going to get our driver’s licenses renewed!

    Air Viper: “WHAT!?” Ew, dude. Aren’t they brother and sister?”

    HISS Tank Driver: “No…Maybe? I don’t know. I’m not even sure those two should exist at the same time. Frankly, I even think our interaction is a bit perplexing.

    Air Viper: “Yeah? Why’s that?”

    HISS Tank Driver: “Listen. As far as you know, that dude in front of us…Is he a lisping snake monster under that dome, or does he look like someone gave a chimp a volcano swirly? Did he sell cars? Was he recently assassinated? Something seems wrong…or conflicted to say the least.

    Air Viper: “I don’t know, man. I just fly my plane and yell ‘Cobra’ at the apporopriate time. Which is constantly, even though I’m alone in the cockpit and the enemy cant hear me.

    HISS Tank Driver: “Alright, I can relate to that. Well, let’s just hope this line finally hurried along so we can start parking our sweet rides on more store shelves than just 4 Walmarts and the odd TRU across the country.”

    And the line never moved, so they never did.

    The End.

    (Our flirtatious couple would go on to have a few drinks together that night, careful not to mention how unnatural their attraction may or may not have been. 9 months later, Golobulus was born. Freak Baby!)

  12. Jennifer says:

    Cover your left… sigh, why don’t any of you have masks that you can take a proper eye exam with?

  13. Stacey says:

    Where’s Patti and Selma? They’re cuter than you!

    Sir, you failed your eye exam already.

  14. Baroness had to give Billy credit for trying to dress up like his Dad; a lot of people in COBRA, wouldn’t question their leader trying to renew his HISS permit. But Anastasia had just been kicked out of high command for a “conflict of interest” after her affair with Destro had been discovered. Sure, James’ promises of visiting his flying castle in Scotland had been sweet temptation, but now she was stuck foiling a teenager from taking his Dad’s expensive military equipment out for a joyride. Was it all worth it? Fond memories of the coolness of his mask pressing on her lips took her away from the “Happy Days” scenario being presented to her… Yes, someday they would be together again; mere office politics couldn’t keep her from the giant collar/medallion combo that had stolen her heart. But until then, she’d be crushing Billy’s dreams of taking a Stinger out on dates with Zanya…

    Billy: Auntie A? Auntie A? Dad sssssaysssss if I can keep up my ssssssssyllable ssssstrainssssss I can take the Driver’s test early!

    What? No! She was about to commit an act of bureaucratic indifference worthy of the governments Cobra was trying to stabilize! Wait… maybe that had been the lesson all along!

    Her mind refreshed, the Baroness began once again admiring the man whose organization she had so long served

    Air Viper: *psst* Hey Tom, why is it none of the women in Cobra don’t wear helmets? Isn’t that kind of sexist?

    HISS Driver: You really want equal dress terms for all of us? I’m pretty sure that the Commander wouldn’t mind making all of us wear skin-tight outfits, especially if it was Tomax’s birthday or if he was told it’d make us move faster on the battlefield.

  15. Snake Eyes says:

    Baroness: What is it with all the R related properties we’ve had over the past few years… Resolute, RoC, Renegades, and now Retaliation.

    Cobra Commander: I’ve always been partial to any title with world domination in it and hopefully with this movie Cobra will rule Hollywood… it’s not world domination but you have to start somewhere.

  16. Howie says:

    Baroness: Take a number and go sit in the old church pews we’ve set up in the lobby.

    CC: I have #101. It says you’re “Now Serving” #38. You’ve got to be ki-

    Baroness: Just take a seat, sir.

    CC: (under his breath) Bet if I unbuttoned my shirt to my navel and had rockets on my wrist I’d get served soo-

    Baroness: SOMETHING TO SAY, SIR??

    CC: No ma’am! So just sit anywhere?

  17. Dave says:

    Yes, I am his father. I actually told him to roll over the car in front of us. I take full responsibility. He was in our regular spot at Service Merchandise! Now, how do we clear this silly thing up?

  18. Scott Hall says:

    “I’m here to pick up my pressssscription!”

    “Sir this is the Department Of Motor Vehicles, not Prescription Helmets In About An Hour”

    “At every turn the incompetence of my troops foils my plans to correct my poor vision! Destro, this is all your fault! RETREAT!!!!”

  19. Tom says:

    Bail Nobra!

  20. john Carl says:
