    ^ I think that is the law for such lotteries
  • Sethro3Sethro3 United StatesMember Posts: 819
    I think most giveaways you can request the winners. I remember doing this as a child when I would enter contests via mail. I'm not sure what the purpose is of having someone else's name on a piece of paper..unless I can somehow find out where they live and talk them into selling their copy hehehe

    Only for certain states. I get that it is one way to prove the prize was given away, but still in this day and age of information gathering I find it a bit unnerving as I'm guessing it is far easier to find someone by name than it was even 15-20 years ago..

    Am I the only one that finds it a bit disturbing that LEGO would willing give out the list of winners to anyone that asks?
    Maybe it is just the city the winner is from, but if they are going to post names and just provide that info to anyone asking seems a bit weird to me.
    If it seems weird for this, imagine what it must feel like for the winners of the solid gold C-3PO. Their names were posted!

    I'm sure they've been hunted down by collectors.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that's the law. I think it's to prevent fraud in the companies part.

    My heart stopped, but it was just about the monthly giveaway.

    Psyche!

    On the serious side, I would think that TLG would have sent out the notices already.

    based on an earlier post the drawing wont happen till July 30th (no source given for that date however) IF that is true then we still have 2-3 weeks wait to hear about winners.

    I think we'll become aware of notifications once Bat-Pods start hitting eBay...

    I wonder how much they'll go for... which is the same as finding out how much I am going to have to spend as I will NEED this set. 
  • obi_gobi_g BlightyMember Posts: 549
    if TLG are making the instructions available after everyone has been notified, does anyone know if they will also be selling the wheels that are exclusive to the tumbler so you can make the set without using the ones out of the set?  this is assuming you'd want to display both!

    yes they are available there but 1 tire is 11.02 USD, that's rather rough. (still cheaper than bricklink prices)

    ^is that the bat-phone?  
  • SithLord196SithLord196 Member Posts: 1,160
    I'm surprised there's been zero news on this at all. 

    Nothing on eBay, nothing here, and from what I can tell nothing anywhere else. They did say all winners were to be notified by August 7th, which is Friday, so I'm starting to get a little curious myself.

    How can not a single member of Brickset not win?
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,263
    From Bricklink forum

    "I shot LEGO an email about the Bat-Pod sweepstakes winners, and they sent me
    this:

      The winners of the Bat-Pod Sweepstakes will be made through a random drawing on/or about July 30, 2015. The winners will be notified by telephone or email by August 7. For a list of the winners please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope request within 60 days of sweepstakes entry date to the address below:

    Looks like California dreamin'...two winners from CA.

    I did not win a bat pod...just saying.
  • SithLord196SithLord196 Member Posts: 1,160
    I am interested in buying a Bat Pod as well.

    My guess is the emails were sent out as a giant batch, so it's probably safe to assume I didn't win one.
  • DawnDawn GoldMember Posts: 247
    Congratz to all winners from Brickset, glad that a few of you were able to win one :)

    @Russell844 Congrats!  Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy.

    So far those email entries in the US were worth it, in the UK & Europe it would be harder to win one unless you made a ton of purchases in the month.
  • rawbobrawbob UKMember Posts: 528
    Any UK winners?
