Big Bugs and Badass Robots for G-Fest XXVI!

…And so, once again, we are danger close to G-Fest. This shall be G-Fest XXVI, and our Fifth G-fest! It also being the Fifth anniversary of Vampire Robots this August, Master Controller Michael wanted to do something special for the give away, which was a big success last year. There was some confusion last year about what day the give away was, or whether or not we were doing one every day, so the decision was made to do a give away on Friday AND Saturday!

So Friday, at 4:45pm Chicago Time, we’ll be giving away the following…

Mechagodzilla'02 (Kiryu) 12" Vinyl Figure by X-Plus

Mechagodzilla'02 (Kiryu) 12" Vinyl Figure by X-Plus

That’s right! From GODZILLA X MECHAGODZILLA, Kiryu! A.K.A. Mechagodzilla’02, by X-Plus! This is the 30cm, or 12 inch, vinyl figure. Per our original site listing…

After withering battles against Godzilla using conventional weaponry, a new armored battle fortress, MechaGodzilla (a.k.a. Kiryu), is built to combat the rampaging creature in 2002's Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla. This figure, part of the 12" scale kaiju series, recreates Mechagodzilla as "Kiryu", for the millennium era, once again making him the defender of Japan against Godzilla.”

This one has a Suggested Retail price of $220.00. We’ve featured it numerous times over the past year in our X-Plus flash sale events, and its always popular. So what do you need to do to get it? Simple, stop by the Vampire Robots booth at some point on Friday before 4:45pm to get yourself a raffle ticket. While its preferred you actually buy something, its not necessary, simply ask Michael for a ticket. Kiryu gets raffled off at 4:45 SHARP, so make sure you’re present when it is…

So that leaves Saturday’s raffle…

Battra Larvae 12" Vinyl Figure by X-Plus

Battra Larvae 12" Vinyl Figure by X-Plus

YES YES YA’LL! WHERE MY HEISEI FANBOYS AT???? On Saturday, we’re giving away one of these colorful bad boys. The 30cm, or 12 inch, Battra Larvae from GODZILLA VS. MOTHRA (1992). Per our original site listing…

Sculpted by Takashi Saiwai, this piece is an accurate representation of everyone's favorite evil larva! Based on the appearance in the 1992 film, Battra stands approximately 12" tall and a whopping 19.5" long! Add him to your collection today!”

Battra retails for a suggested $230.00. We’ve been sold out of them since the previous G-Fest, and they’ve more or less dried up at most other retailers.

So like Kiryu, stop by at any point on Saturday and get yourself a raffle ticket, then swing back at 4:45pm that day for the raffle. Make sure to be present then and there…

The ground rules, just to be clear…

  • Swing by the Vampire Robots booth to get a raffle ticket. In the interest of fairness, its one ticket per person, tickets are FREE, but no trying to juke the odds in your favor.

  • On Friday, your ticket is good for one chance to win a Mechagodzilla'02 (Kiryu) 12" Vinyl Figure by X-Plus. You cannot trade it for something else at the Vampire Robots table. If you already have one, maybe you can trade with someone else at the show. That’s on you…

  • At approximately 4:45pm CST Friday & Saturday, respectively, we will pull one ticket at random. The person with the winning ticket number MUST be present at that time to win. If no one claims that ticket number, we will pull another...and another...and ANOTHER, until we've found ourselves a WINNER! You must be able to take delivery of the figure then and there. We will not arrange any kind of delivery after the convention. If you can't take delivery of it then and there, you forfeit it, and we draw another winning number.

  • Fellow Dealers are exempt! Sorry Gang, but if you're a dealer, or a dealer's helper, you should know we don't do dealer-to-dealer sales anymore on Friday & Saturday
