I entered, but I didn't look at the figures, since I haven't seen the characters in their older forms yet. Not until the January 2008 issue of Shonen Jump, that is...

Uh, yeah, maybe a spoiler warning should be added. A lot of non-Japanese Naruto fans don't know about Shippuuden, let alone want to be spoiled by their new looks. I know pictures of them on the forum would be taboo without proper warnings, seems kinda careless to slap them in a traffic heavy front page contest.

Yeah... cause we all know that figures of the way the characters look two and a half years later will be massive spoilers. You can tell who's gonna die and who has what new moves just by looking at a little piece of plastic... Oh, darn you, ANN, for spoiling us with pictures of toys... Rolling Eyes

Yeah,I only enter the contest for the box set and the Shipuuden action figures. If I win I would probably sell Naruto's PSP game because I don't own a PSP. Because,I only buy Nintendo handhelds for obvious reasons. So,far mine decison is wise seeing as how the DS is dominating the PSP.

Technically, its spoilers. It gives away that certain characters are alive and not dead and the likes. Possibility that it'll piss off a few. Look at Sailor Moon figures for "new moves" for example. Countless other examples.

Part of the fun of new character designs is being surprised by them when they happen and at the appropriate time. It has nothing to do with story, it's about spoiling the new look for the uninitiated. It may be a minor spoiler to some, but it's a spoiler nonetheless. In the Naruto manga they built a lot of suspense up before they ever showed Sasuke's new look (though the anime totally disregarded that), other characters' updates were held in secret until they were ready to appear in the manga. Flashing those designs on a heavy traffic site takes the fun out of it and ruins the surprise for those that aren't up to date with Japan. I don't see a design spoiler as being any different that a story spoiler.

Only once. Sorry, I forgot to include that rule, it's been updated. Anyone who submitted multiple addresses before the update won't be penalized, I'll just remove the duplicate entries but leave the first entry.
