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.

#14 Edited by TooWalrus (13178 posts) -

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.

#15 Posted by Kiemoe (1055 posts) -

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

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

#25 Posted by Zripwud (247 posts) -

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

#26 Posted by Zippedbinders (986 posts) -

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.

#27 Posted by FlamingHobo (4482 posts) -

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!

#28 Posted by Shadow (4979 posts) -

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.

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

#32 Posted by afrokola (547 posts) -

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

#40 Posted by RipTheVeins (1546 posts) -

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

#41 Posted by JokerClown88 (1051 posts) -
@RipTheVeins:
Perfect thats what I needed to know.  I now know exactly where I would put it should I win.
