LAST CONTEST 12-11-2006 to 12-24-2006

Sponsored by:

Hunt for Grievous Begins!

Do you want a Sideshow Grievous for the Holidays?  All you have to do is find 6 Puzzle Pieces hidden here at Yodasnews.com,  in the Yodasnews forums and at RazorsEdgeCollectibles.com. We will be posting on the main page  when and where each piece will be posted.

 

Three will be at Yodasnews and three will be hidden at RazorsEdgeCollectoibles.com.

 

The first one has been  hidden and is somewhere in our forums,  to be more specific it will be inside one of the Action Figure Forums (that is the second section from the top and contains only 17 sub-topics so you won't need to look in the entire board, just there). The image you are looking for is posted below:

 

Puzzle Piece #1

 

You will need to tell us EXACTLY where it is, for example:

 

I found the first image in a the Saga Section, under a topic called I Love Jar Jar within a post by BillyTheKid.

 

or

 

I found the second image hidden at RazorsEdgeCollectibles.com on the Boba Fett Statue product page.

 

 

YOU WILL ONLY SEND IN ALL SIX ANSWERS ONCE YOU HAVE THEM. THE ADDRESS TO WHERE TO SEND THEM WILL BE POSTED AFTER THE SIXTH PUZZLE PIECE HAS BEEN HIDDEN.

The first person to send in ALL SIX CORRECT ANSWERS will win a Sideshow 1/4 Scale General Grievous Statue from Sideshow Collectibles.

The 1/4-scale Premium Format General Grievous Figure was meticulously sculpted to capture every detail of Grievous' techno-organic body, from the organs captured in his clear green chest cavity to the marbled surface of his armor. The figure itself is a composite of metal, plastic, and polystone, engineered to provide the optimum stability and durability. The detailed paint application utilizes elaborate marbling and metallic techniques that breathe life into what little is left of his organic being. Each of the General's four robotic limbs wields a Jedi lightsaber, each a trophy from his fallen prey. Included is an environmental display stand with artist and edition information on the base bottom.

The product size is 25" H (635mm) x 18" W (457mm) x 18" W (457mm) with Lightsabers and weighs about 15 pounds. This statue was a limited edition of 2500 pieces made.
