Re-announcing the winner of the Eddie Riggs figure!

Eddie Riggs statueMan, you guys like free stuff! After recieving a whopping 1554 entries, I’m happy to reveal the winner of the Eddie Riggs figure:

Zachary George

Congratulations! As you didn’t leave any contact details I’m going to need you to comment on this news post with something I can use to get in touch with you.

Thanks for participating, everyone! Hopefully the fact that Brutal Legend is out today will ease the souls of those of you who didn’t win.

Update

[October 16th, 2009 at 9:38am GMT+1] And so, today Zachary George learns an important lesson about not leaving people hanging. Due to the prize having not been claimed after several days and no contact details having been left, I’ve done a second draw and chosen a new winner:

Tony Young

Lucky you! I’ve sent you an email seeing as you were savvy enough to include it. To be honest it kind of pleases me that a true fan got it — that Zachary guy clearly has no interest!

3. Troy 7 years, 9 months ago

Well done Zachary George, if only I were American

4. Ryan BRUTAL! Staff 7 years, 9 months ago

5. Craig 7 years, 9 months ago

9. Chris Marino 7 years, 9 months ago

I have never won anything in my life. Change that for me.

Seems that he might not know he won. What a shame.

11. RK 7 years, 9 months ago

A 2nd draw wouldn’t be a bad idea if he doesn’t come back.

I’ll pay for it if he doesn’t claim it.

12. The Wizard 7 years, 9 months ago

Ah, well, it’s always someone else, isn’t it? Congratulations, Zach!

Now, how do I get one of the other 998 figures? I know one belongs to Mr. George and another belongs to the good folks at Kotaku, but what about those that remain? Hmm…

13. Lovick 7 years, 9 months ago

Argh… I is jealous Zachary.
@12. Wizard: I’ve been wondering the same thing for quite awhile now, I thought this site was giving away all 999(One went to Kotaku) but I see now that I was wrong.

14. Non-winner... 7 years, 9 months ago

Congrats to Zach

…though I won’t lie when I say I hope for a second draw… >.>;

15. Zachary George 7 years, 9 months ago

I am Zachary George. Please email me at contreras1817@ymail.com

16. Zachary George 7 years, 9 months ago

I Joke, I Joke

17. ColinStein 7 years, 9 months ago

I guess my Brütal Legend calendar wasn’t enough…oh well. I’m sure he’s busy playing his game right now.

18. Coggs 7 years, 9 months ago

Congrats to Zack!

19. Monkeysrus 7 years, 9 months ago

Man that would have been an awasome brütal birthday preasent. Damn

20. Ryan BRUTAL! Staff 7 years, 9 months ago

Heh, well I can’t find any way of contacting this guy (tried Google to no avail) and so I think I’ll give him until the European release on the 16th before assuming he’s forgotten he entered and will do a second draw.

21. Not Zachary George 7 years, 9 months ago

Good job man.

22. Wes Cutting 7 years, 9 months ago

I am assuming that you are also checking the IP address so you know which one is actually Mr. George?

23. Potatoe sam 7 years, 9 months ago
24. Ryan BRUTAL! Staff 7 years, 9 months ago

Yes, like I said in the original news post. ;D

He hasn’t made an appearance yet. Man will he be pissed if he forgets about this and then remembers in a few weeks!

25. Repiv 7 years, 9 months ago

You would think that if he really wanted this he would have checked in by now…IMHO he is not worthy

26. Potatoe sam 7 years, 9 months ago

who has the tenacious d guitar?

27. Potatoe sam 7 years, 9 months ago

jack black fuinds his inner eddie riggs

28. Kroms 7 years, 9 months ago

Second draw, Thrik! ‘Tis time!

29. RK 7 years, 9 months ago

If he really wanted it he would have checked back the 13th to see if he won.

I vote for 2nd draw. From these posts :-p

30. Nikki 7 years, 9 months ago

Only time will tell.

31. poofyslime 7 years, 9 months ago

I’m sure he’ll show up at some point… right?

32. aaron_the_relentless 7 years, 9 months ago

I have come back to check this website and still no progress on this guy? I am not beating my chest and saying “Me here, me want statue”, But i do see it necessary for one of these dedicated Brutals to claim this prize. If you enter a contest and don’t even care enough to see if won (or to even leave contact into) then how dedicated are you? Rock on Brutals!

33. Crunch 7 years, 9 months ago

Congratulations to Zachary. However, if he doesn’t return, and I really hope he does, will the second draw be from the same pool of people? Can I enter twice? :P

34. Ryan BRUTAL! Staff 7 years, 9 months ago

Haha, yes of course you hope he does! ;D

Yes, the pool will be from the same pool of people.

35. Nikki 7 years, 9 months ago

So if this one never responds to his email, I get it, right? :D

.. right?

Naw, congrats!

36. poofyslime 7 years, 9 months ago

Congratulations Mr. Young!

37. Troy 7 years, 9 months ago

Yeah, take that, sinner. I was lying when I congratulated you.

On an unrelated note when I get home from school I will have a copy of Brutal Legend waiting for me

38. Husachi 7 years, 9 months ago

I have the game and that’s good enough for me. ^^

Btw, the storyline is awesome but kinda sad. I feel bad for Ophelia. ='(

39. Snaggletooth 7 years, 9 months ago
