Toy Soldiers is a game about toys. And soldiers. According to its official Xbox page, more specifically it’s an “action-packed strategy-based game in which players command antique WWI toy soldiers vying for control of the trench-filled battlefields of Europe.” I don’t know what the hell that means, but I do know it has flamethrowers. That means it’s A-OK in my book and worthy of being given away, and I’m teaming up with Marissa’s Bunny to do just that! Available for three lucky gamers are codes not only for the full game (worth 1200) but also for the recently released expansion pack. Entering is as easy as three simple steps:

With the release of the Legendary edition of Halo 3 came an abundance of Spartan Mjolnir Mark VI helmets spotted in the wild. Many of them simply collect dust, but a few actually serve a very specific purpose. When faced with the task of coming up with the most creative use for these Master Chief-themed head coverings, many of you were up for the challenge. Unfortunately not all the entries can be called a finalist, but every single one of them was unique and entertaining in its own right. Take a gander at the top submissions, then cast your vote as to which one is your favorite! The person that comes out on top will find themselves the proud owner of several more helmets. And somehow I have a feeling they’ll find a use for all of them in no time.

Chances are, somewhere around that haphazardly decorated house of yours, you have one of the Spartan Mjolnir Mark VI helmets that came with the Legendary Edition of Halo 3. Mine has superior dust collecting skills but as Halo: Reach and the accompanying statue inch closer, finding a more useful purpose for that massive head covering grows more and more imperative. You’ll help me with this rather noble mission, won’t you? Discover and snap a picture of the most creative use of a Halo 3 Legendary helmet and you’ll win even more helmets to add to your Halo collection! (The prize includes two McFarlane Toys Halo 3 Helmet 3-packs: red w/ Mark VI, EOD and CQB and variety pack w/ gray Rogue, Master Chief’s Mark VI and an orange CQB.) Because I’m nice, I’m even going to throw in a Gamer Graffix 18×24 Halo 3 wall cling. Those up for the challenge should read the contest specifics (located after the jump), grab the nearest picture-taking device, and get to finding a unique use for their big, green helmet. And no, not that helmet. I did say big after all.
