Back in December, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA)
held a promotion to win Little Big Planet 2. You needed to be part of the PlayStation Rewards Program to qualify. All you needed to do is sign into your PlayStation Reward account and enter yourself in the sweepstakes. The sweepstakes went on from Dec 1st to Dec.31st.
On the PS3 blog, the “Winner & Selection” was as follows:
“One (1) Entrant will be randomly selected on or about January 14th, 2010 to win (individually “Winner”, collectively “Winners”) one prize. Each prize package will include two (2) Little Big Planet statues. The approximate retail value of each prize package is $1200.00.”
There’s a typo as they probably meant the winner(s) would be picked in Jan 2011, not 2010. The Little Big Planet statue duo is currently on auction with a hefty price tag. If these statues were estimated at $1200, basically times that by two and you’ll be just around the starting price for the auction.
These statues are massive! They are around 29 inches high and weigh 27 pounds! Seller also has the original packaging, and you’d hope so since these were only sent out to winners last week. The seller also mentions that there were only 10 statues produced each (so 20 in total) making these statues one of the rarest, if not “the” rarest Little Big Planet collectible. I love video game statues and these are just beautiful!
