This Friday, March 4, is the third annual ACTION FIGURE WORK DAY. Now, you might hear it called "Bring Your Action Figure to Work Day" or "Take Your Action Figure to Work Day," but it's all the same thing, and what's important is that you do, indeed, take or bring an action figure to work. In addition to spreading the joy of toys and collectibles, you should take a picture of your figure in it's new working environment, and then tag said picture on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest) with both tags: #AFWDatEE and #AFWD2016. See for me, I take action figures to work every day, but for you... well, this is an opportunity to win some cool prizes that my friends at Entertainment Earth will be dishing out at random. Prizes like the EE-Exclusive GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Comic Edition MARVEL Legends Action Figure Set by Hasbro - a $119.99 value. 

Now, I have nothing to do with these giveaways, but I am an Entertainment Earth Ally, and I helped spread the word last year as well. Why? Because everyone should take their action figures to work, always!
