Sweet Odin's Raven! By the Hammer of Thor!


Choose one of those reactions and hold on to it, because we've got some awesome Thor swag to dish out in celebration of Thor landing on Blu-ray and DVD on September 13th. It was the unexpected hit of the summer and arguably the best comic book movie in a year overflowing with the genre. Kenneth Branagh delivered what few thought anyone could: make a Thor movie that isn't entirely hokey, introduces the character, and actually gives us a palatable explanation for it to fit in with the Avengers. Check, check, and check. Okay, enough praise (there's a Blu-ray review for that), let's discuss what's in this for you. Would you like to win a 3D Blu-ray combo pack (includes the movie in 3D, normal Blu, DVD, and digital copy) with a cardboard sleeve signed by Thor (Chris Hemsworth) himself. Oh, and we'll also be throwing in Thor's hammer Mjolnir (don't worry, it won't just automatically return to us once it reaches your home) and a Thor action figure from Hasbro.

To find out how you can win just keep reading, or you can take your impatient self over to Amazon.

This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
