This contest is infuriating. I hope it's not as broken as the flocked SS promo...

Usually when an item like this shows up on ebay so early it's because someone stole it from the manufacturing plant, or distribution process. I see this a lot with as of yet unreleased Lego figures on ebay.

Please, no one buy this. If anything, it's a decent indication that the figure will hit retail at some point.

I'm happy to see that it will actually have it's own packaging...which makes me wonder after the promotion will they possibly offer this a la Gnarly style.

The "retail packaging" doesn't mean it'll hit retail, although I hope it does for those that don't win one. The Halloween Fright Rider also came in standard retail packaging, hang tag and all.

yes i contacted the person and this is what they said and i quote "I did not get this from the Frito-Lay promotion. I received it from a friend who is a developer for the game. Make an offer if you're interested.

doesn't he know that he and friend could get in trouble

If said friend was a developer and got it because he works there how in the world could they get into trouble?

Because it's not released yet, they should wait until it's out.

Otherwise, it is taking advantage from an office gift.
artican Blue Sparx Gems: 501
#1011 Posted: 14:44:31 02/12/2013
^ not a problem if he just gave it to him but to sell before release date is the problem, but i dont think his "friend" gave this to him
Reimu Yellow Sparx Gems: 1076
#1012 Posted: 14:46:22 02/12/2013
"taking asdvantage from an office gift" was going WITH the "wait" thing. If you sell it after anyone can get it, there's no issue with that.

The figure looks really nice. I hope no one spends the $250 for it, that's ridiculous at this point, there are still a good 29 days left on the contest to win one for free and the wording sounds like this figure will still come out at retail after that. Even after the contest is over and the figures are shipped these figures will FLOOD EBay with many people winning several for EBay fodder.

Yup won one for another friend - using his information to send directly to his home address. This one took a few days before I got a win, so don't give up. There is a lot of time left before this promo is over.

Finally won my second figure this morning at 7:00 am PT, after 3 attempts. Been trying 3 times a day almost daily since the promotion started. Much harder than the Fright Rider promotion.

Or from where it is from it's possible that some could already be distributing? Depends how early they won and where they are located. The closer someone is to the distributing of it, obviously it won't take 2 months to get them

I called CS rep on Monday Dec 2nd to check the status. They told me that it shows I won one but it has not been marked as packed yet. They said it gets marked as packed and then ships within a week. They told me to call back later in the week to check the status again. I called today Dec 6th and it now shows as packed. She said it will ship within a week. Looks like Quick Draws could arrive before Christmas.

I wish I had a girlfriend.

But a Glow in the Dark Rattle Shake will suffice.

Unfortunately I haven't had much luck on that end either.

I'm a bit confused about the timing. Do I wanna do this every 15 minutes on the dot like 5:00, 5:15, 5:30 and so on, or just cash in all at once on the same minute?

The drawings are random time within 15 minutes I have won at 11:06 am I have won at 4:00am I have won at 3:07 am and at 4:15am and have won 12:06 pm you never know you just have to try. Total luck involved no skill at all just pure timing when you enter you info and hit enter. Good luck The fifth one was sent to a friend that was having no luck she bought me some bags of chips and I played codes for her and after 4 or 5 days I won one for her she will be so happy. The more you play the more you try to win and its sure just luck of the draw time and no skill it's a game of chance did your chance of being at the right place at the right time win? Don't give up I have played this over and over and then I won and I never gave up it can be done.

Absolutely no one should use this offer!!!!! That post and all the quotes from it should be removed from this forum immediately.

Even if it is legit, NOBODY should have all that information about you. Identities have/can/will be stolen from having less than what this new member is asking for.

Bad idea, get rid of the post!

Well, ...you wouldn't qualify for my help anyway, since you clearly stated here that you have already won TWO... ^_~

BUT...

You make a valid point, and I do understand that trust is a fragile thing. I don't want to encourage anybody to do anything they are uncomfortable with. I am a completely new user here, and there is no real reason to trust me yet, so I can understand that. If it would help, I could refer you to another (board)game-based website with 44 thousand members and 1.8 million posts where I AM a long-term member in good standing. In my years there, I've been known to run a contest or two where I received 'sensitive personal information' from dozens of members, and nobody went missing afterwards or had a metric ton of junkmail dumped on their houses as a result. Ask around there a bit if you'd like - I'm sure anybody of importance there would give me a good word. ^_~

But again, the bottom line is your personal comfort and safety. If you don't want me entering the contest for you, that's fine with me. I completely understand, and my feelings won't be hurt in the slightest. ^_^

If you WOULD like be to give it a try on your behalf, I'll be glad to do so, and I promise that's ALL I'll do with your info. What you make of that promise is up to you, but I assure you I have the best of intentions.

Do what you feel is best.

Kids, please ALWAYS get your parents' permission before giving personal info to a stranger on the internet.

You can't use the same e-mail more than once a day, right? I'm not sure about the same physical address, though. I don't see anything in the official rules about it. It just says limit one (1) per person/email address a day. maybe use a different name and the same address, just in case.

BTW, the rules also state that the prize will be shipped within 8-10 weeks after verification (which I would assume is when you get your verification screen). It doesn't say after the promotion ends. Granted, 8-10 weeks is probably outside the promotion period even if you won day one, but most of these things have the 8-10 week disclaimer but ship before that. So it's possible they could ship before the promotion ends. There's nothing saying otherwise. I know some have said CS stated that, but others have said the opposite, so I wouldn't count on that. But it also looks like I wouldn't count on them really telling you anything beyond verification that you're in the system, unless they get a "shipped" status on their screen. They probably have no way of knowing when they will ship once they are in "packaged" status.

Nope. The contest website won't LET you enter twice on the same day with the same e-mail address. It gives you a nice friendly message that says "Limit one (1) entry per person per day". ^_^

If you want to use the 'same' e-mail more than once per day, you can 'bend the rules' slightly by using a gmail address, as was pointed out earlier in this thread. Inbound e-mails at gmail have and 'periods' before the @-sign stripped before routing. Thus e-mails to:

some.body@gmail.com
and
som.eb.ody@gmail.com
and
s.o.m.e.body@gmail.com

will all go to the same place, which is: somebody@gmail.com ^_^

Signup for a gmail account and use different permutations of the periods if you want to play more than once per day.

Yep. SkylandersDad5 just enlightened me to that option via PM. So, addenda to my previous offer:

If you have a personal gmail account and would like to handle the 'validation e-mail' from Frito-Lay yourself, just PM me your zip code and gmail address, and I'll make entries from there like SkylandersDad5 has...

Did l get an e-mail? I didn't think people were getting any kind of e-mail from them. I don't remember which account I used, but I checked all of mine, even in the junk folders (and did a complete search through all my gmail folders) and didn't find anything. I just now called the number to make sure they had me in the system. They verified it and said I was in the last stages of processing and it would be shipped out this week, so to expect it next week. Like I said, I'm not sure how well you can trust what the CSRs say, but check one for another CSR saying they will be shipped soon.
