Rare gamescom Goodies Giveaway [EVERYTHING TAKEN]

Hello friends!

As we all know, the past 5 days there was gamescom being held in Cologne, Germany. Since I live only about an hour away from the exhibition Grounds, it's only naturally I visit every year.

This year I was suprised to find Rare having a little section at the X-Box booth, promoting Rare Replay.



Inside you could play Rare Replay for about 10-20 minutes. Pretty nice.
However, if you left, you got one of these pretty Rareware pins as a gift!



I recognized those from E3, as they apparently have also given them away there. I also remembred some of you guys said that you really wanted to have one of those. So I thought why the frick not?
I've been at gamescom all the days and every day I've been queing for Rare Replay at least once a day to get some of the pins when leaving. In the end, I managed to get a hold of 10 spare pins I will be giving away to you guys!



But that's not all they gave away! While waiting in line, some of the staff came walking around sometimes to hand us these beautiful foam-hands to advertise for Banjo-Kazooie and Battletoads!





One of my friends was kind enough to give me his foam hands as well, so I can also give those to you if you like. :3 I'm also giving away my Battletoads foam hand because I don't have that much of a conection to the game.

Sooo, what do you have to do?
Simply ask me!


Tell me if you would like to have one of these and I will send them to you, covering shipping costs and all, so no need to worry about that. Consider this another gift to the community, since I really had to think about you guys. ;)

EDIT:
Edited the first post to show how many things are still available.

Even if I could have gone to Gamescom. I havn't thought oh the goodies you can get.
I love BK, but am not a Fan of Hands.
If it is okay for you, I would love one of the "Rare" pins. (Sorry for the pun)

I'm assuming the Banjo hands are already claimed, but if you have any pins left, I would love to have one!

Okay guys, sorry for my late reply. Last week I randomly collapsed on a parking lot while grocery shopping and had to be taken to the hospital, the kept me there for almost a week. Trying to catch up with this thing now, sorry again for the delay!

To the people that only wanted a Pin: Your pins are bagged and will be sent out later this week. :) Except for GrayMagic everyone sent me their adress. If you already have though and I have just been too lousy to notice, forgive me and please do tell!

To the people that wanted a foam hand: I still have to find a package that is large enough for them to fit without wasting too much space in height. Turns out it's not as easy as I thought it was. I haven't forgotten about you, though, and will try to take care of this asap!

Also I have edited the start post to get you updated on how many items are left. :)

No worries, I'm fine. :)
It was a hot and humid day and my circulation went crazy, I probably just ate/drank to less that day. All the checks they did at the hospital were negative and my vitals are all good.

Glad to know that you're feeling better!

Do you still have a Rare pin? I would LOVE to have one! I'm also ready to try to find a way to cover the shipping if you want.

Either way, thanks for doing this, that's awesome! :D!

@TrentR: Yay, I'm glad yours arrived save and sound! :D

That's a nice Aria Blaze plushie, although I gotta admit I like Sonata Dusk more. ;3

Also, a PSA:

I have found some boxes with a good size to ship the foam hands with. Although I will have to postpone sending those simply because there is an enormous hole in my wallet this month and I have a hard time getting through the month as it is. This also counts for everyone who sent me their Adress AFTER the 20th of August.
Sorry this is taking so long guys, I wasn't expecting such inconviniences. :/

Apart from that, one Rare Pin and one Battletoads Fist left! :)
