Original Contest Information:

Muhahahaha! It's that time of year ... a time of ghouls and ghosts, hobgoblins and spectres, Snickers and candy corn ... and robots dressed up for Halloween!

So, the race is on...

Who can post a video or still image of their favorite WowWee robot all decked out to trick or treat? Create a video of your RSV2 scaring the neighbors. Or perhaps your Roboquad will attend the ball as Cinderellalienspiderthing. Or, RS Media could get the smack down on Roboreptile in the latest WWE challenge (costume required).

Whatever your idea, show us in video or photos, and have a chance to win nifty WowWee prizes! Here are the details...

To Enter:

Entry is easy. First, you have to be a member of RoboCommunity. Then, simply post an embedded YouTube video or image to one of the three official contest threads below between now and midnight on October 30th. Winners will be selected at that time by our very own Michelle C, WowWee insider and in this case judge and jury on the best Halloween robo videos / images.

Videos will be perferred, so for the best chance to win, post a video. You may doctor your video or image with special effects if you'd like to, but please post the original as well, so that we can all admire your great Photoshop / Moviemaker skills.

Contest Categories:

There are three categories for this contest... the scariest, the funniest, and the most realistic. You may enter one or more (even all) categories if you'd like, but you will only win one prize. Here's how the categories break down...

Scariest - Michelle will select the video / image of the WowWee robot most likely to scare the neighbor children. If this is you, enter by posting to this thread.

Funniest - Here, the prize will go to the 'bot most likely to make you roll on the ground laughing as you watch the video. If this is you, enter by posting to this thread.

Most Realistic - If you think you can convince Michelle that aliens really are invading for halloween or that "Robopanda: Night of the Living Dead" is a true life action film, then enter here. If this is you, enter by posting to this thread.

Just an example... of how not to win...Prizes:

Many prizes will be given, so your chance to win is outstanding. Here's a breakdown of the available prizes...

  • 3 Grand Prizes: Roboreptile (one per category)
  • 3 1st Prizes: Robosapien V2 Mini (one per category)
  • 10 2nd Prizes: WowWee T-shirt (Check out an image of the T-shirt at the WowWee Store.)

Winner Selection:

Michelle C will be the sole, exclusive, one-and-only authority on who wins what. She'll select them on Halloween (October 31st), and we'll post the winners then.
