Welcome Eddie Riggs Into Your Own Metal Fortress

Or: Here's a chance to win a pretty sweet statue for your very own home.

Look at the calendar. If EA's marketing machine has done its job, you'll recognize that today is Tuesday, Rocktober the 13th. That means the release of Double Fine's heavy metal opus Brütal Legend is upon us. Go ahead, throw up the horns if you'd like.

Our review is forthcoming, but in the meantime, our fine friends at EA have given us the chance to offer you this limited edition statue of the game's rippin' roadie hero, Eddie Riggs. Here is the photographic evidence.


NOTE: This one is open to U.S. residents only.

Now! You know what to do. To enter, comment on this story. Yep, that's it. This Friday morning I'll select the lucky winner via contest robot and get in touch to arrange shipment and such. Off you go!     
 
 
UPDATE: Winner selected! And it is...  ParadoxControl. Thanks to everyone who entered.

DOUBLE FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE! 
 
Seriously I've been wanting that statue so bad ever since it's beauty grazed my monitor months ago.. it's imprinted into my eyelids.
 
Edit: it would also match nicely with my Brutal Legend posters, standee, and (soon to be mine) Brutal Legend Hoodie... yeah, I'm a fanboy for this game.

Rocktober just got a little more awesome.

Well, I bought Brutal Legend the second Best Buy opened this morning... I think it's fair to say that I want that figure more than life itself.

Posted by Kiemoe

Oh man. I would like it please.

Posted by JokerClown88

Here's hoping you guys expand some of your cheaper-shippingy contests to those cripples currently living the barbaric outer regions. :)

Hello, contest robot. How are you?

Posted by ParadoxControl

Do Want

Posted by SquirrelGOD

WANT!  May the Metal Gods help me claim this prize.

Posted by Zripwud

Why U.S. only? I want my Eddie Riggs statue. =(

Posted by Zippedbinders

A selection robot? So there's no chance of being picked by one of the various handsome and powerful reviewers (and other handsome and powerful staff) by appealing to their vanity?
 
Alas, I'll just hope the robot can pick me.

Posted by FlamingHobo

U.S. Only? *Sigh*
No worries, I understand that you dudes don't want to pay for shipping. The figure is pretty sweet, congratulations to whoever wins it!

Posted by Shadow

Stuff like this deserves a contest of some sort.  Oh well, at least I now have a chance at winning this with no effort.  man, I want that thing.

Hey!  I'm a U.S. resident, Hoorah.

Vinny doesn't care enough to look at the camera. He's just that cool.

Posted by afrokola

The only thing that would make that figure more awesome would be the lead singer from Metalacolypse. Metal Vinny for the win!

Giant Bomb tried to kill the metal, but metal was much too stroooonnnng!!!  This would make an excellent cake topper for my wedding cake!

Posted by arnavdesai

Wow sweet statue.

Posted by Fragonard

I want this so hard.

Posted by RipTheVeins

alright, I need some self-control so I don't spam this... but Vinny reminds me of the guy at the party giving the guy asking everyone for a high-five a high-five out of sympathy. What a trooper ;P

Posted by JokerClown88
@RipTheVeins:
Perfect thats what I needed to know.  I now know exactly where I would put it should I win.
