*** Legopants' "GERMANY'S OUT" DFB Footballer Set "Lottery-To-Buy-At-RRP" Shizzelle ***

LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 1,964

Roll up, roll up, again!

To mark Germany's tragic exit from Euro 2016, I've decided to do another "Lottery-To-Buy-At-RRP" shizzle.
I was saving it until the final (expecting the German team to ease through), but seeing as they've been knocked out, there's not much point in waiting :-) 

Anyway, here's another chance for a lucky Bricksetter to obtain a complete set of DFB Footballers (71014) for just 50 EUR.

All 16 bags have a 3cm cut along the top of the bag (just above the bar code) to allow identification of the minifigs. Each bag has been labelled and put in its own zip-loc bag.

Terms and conditions:
- The lottery is open worldwide and there is no limit to the number of people who can enter.
- Anyone can enter (doesn't matter if you've got a set already).
- One entry per person.
- The cut-off point for entries will be 22:00 Germany time (UTC +2:00) on Tuesday, 12th July 2016 (timestamp of post).
- Each entry will be assigned a number.
- The list of entries will be posted here on Wednesday, 13th July 2016.
- The winning number will be selected at random using a Random Number Generator app on my mobile phone and announced here at 22:00 Germany time (UTC +2:00) on Thursday, 14th July 2016.
- By entering, you are saying that you are happy to buy the set for 50 EUR and pay for shipping to your country of residence (recorded and tracked shipping without insurance to e.g. UK/US costs 6.20 EUR).
- Payment in EUR via PayPal gift option.


To enter:
Simply post an answer to this incredibly difficult and thought-provoking question:
If you were a Super Hero/Villain, what name would you choose for yourself and what would be your special skill/power?


Please PM me if anything is unclear.

Good luck! :-)

    Pessimist Man - "I'm probably not going to save anybody or anything..."

    edit #1 oh man, first post. This probably means I'm not going to even win a chance to purchase something :( . Better luck next time. 

    Edit #2, I just realized there probably isn't going to be a next time.

    Edit #3, Thanks for noticing me...

    (Thanks for putting this on #Legopants you are the hero!)

    This is actually one that we made up the other day when one of my kids was being particularly obstructive:

    Negative Boy - disagrees with everything and then it just happens. 

    Bystander: "Oh no, the bridge is out and that bus full of schoolchildren is heading for certain doom"

    NB: "No it's not". (Bridge reappears)

    Nemesis: "Ha ha ha Negative Boy. Now I will destroy you and take over the world"

    NB: "No you won't" 


    But it ends badly for Negative Boy:

    Saved Damsel: "You are my hero, and you have the best superpower"

    NB: "No I don't."

    Maybe this is just a symptom of my weariness of constantly traveling, but I would be Traffic Master...able to telepathically create road congestion, change stoplights to red, produce speed traps, cause GPS devices to malfunction, generate parking tickets, and even increase the length of security/check-in lines at airports among other abilities.

    Actually, I have a hunch there may already be a super villain that does this...at least it always seems that way when I have to go somewhere.
