Chrome Stormtrooper winners

LEGO Chrome StormtrooperSince the April Fool’s joke about winning 800 chrome stormtroopers accidentally got posted at 10 PM on March 31 causing a shocking number of you to apparently take the post seriously, we’re making it up to you by giving away 5 of the real thing (which is all we actually have) to 5 of you who commented on the post.

And the randomly generated winners are:

  • bluesky681
  • tigre-bleu
  • Cold Ivory
  • toksik
  • bricktrooper403

We’ll shoot you an e-mail to get your contact info to send you the stormie.

Now, with that out of the way, I’ll add one note of caution about Things You Read on the Internet: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And then magnify that by a factor of 83.4% whenever it’s April 1 somewhere on the planet. Eight hundred chrome stormtroopers to one winner? Really, people? Really?

    Well crap. I got penalized for not being gullible?! lol

    That’s quite the gesture, though. :)

    ^ You weren’t alone. ;-)

    Of 245,000 readers who’ve visited the site at least 15 times (over 100,000 who’ve visited more than 200) or of the 175,000 unique people who’ve visited TBB within the last month, “only” 208 left a comment on that post. Just sayin’.

    This is way cool of you guys. Totally unnecessary for sure, but very welcome. To be fair, it was an obvious april fools prank, but i guy can still hope for the best right?

    Well hot dog! I didn’t comment because of the whole obvious-april-fools thing. Oh, and the part where I have no need for a chrome storm trooper and don’t understand the appeal. But hey — I could have sold ’em, right? (This comment is all made in good humor. ;-) )

    I hope the winners build something cool using the chrome stormies and submit pictures to Brothers Brick! :)

    Congratulations! Best thing is, being so gullible sucked me into signing up. Now I’m working on my NPU.
