I'll take pictures in a minute.

They're coming via UPS from New York.

Edit: here are the pics:

The box and its contents. The 360 controller is for scale:

Sorry about the terrible photography. The enclosed card says "with compliments" in the cursive type that a classy game where you can kill prostitutes deserves. Beneath that is the Rockstar logo and their New York address.

The key in the case:

Just like we imagined it.

The key in hand (literally):

Yes, and those of us who were waiting for our prizes were starting to feel like Ralphie in "A Christmas Story".

So now you can walk on into Rockstar HQ and take a look at what's going on (and stab the security guards using the key)?

Is this for the first 10 people who completed it 100%, or anyone who has?

It was for however many people completed it before a certain date in the first few weeks of the game's release. You had to be registered through the Rockstar Social Club as well, that's how they tracked it. I don't know the exact numbers but I'm sure they sent out a few thousand at least.

It's something known as a blanket or a quilt. They're for keeping warm when you sleep.

No, I'm from Wyoming.

I never got any form of tracking number or any advance notice whatsoever from Rockstar, it just arrived on my doorstep, but the box had a tracking number on it and I tracked it and it was mailed out on Wednesday from New York.

I imagine people on the West coast will start getting theirs on Monday. As for the rest of the world... who knows?

When I first opened the topic I was like "F*ckin' Sweet! I'm gonna get a controller messenger combo!!" But then I was let down.

Anyways, I'll soon have a key, so I can say "This is what I did for the month of may" rolleyes.gif

Hmm using the email method as a response for that signature waiver thing, I doubt that they've got my message.

Did you send the printed waiver to the mail?

I actually faxed mine in. I don't know if they sent them all at once or if any group of people got theirs sent first based on faxing, mailing or emailing but that's what I did.

and yeah, I never got any sort of confirmation after I faxed it in, nor did I hear of anyone who emailed or snail-mailed it getting any confirmation.

There's no way of knowing you're getting the key until you get it, I guess.

Somebody already has theirs up for sale on eBay. They're asking $150 for it, no takers.

It's not my auction, I wanna be buried with mine! Actually, that is a bit of an exaggeration but I don't plan on parting with mine. I earned it and I waited over 6 months for it.

But yeah, I think it's dumb to pay what that guy is asking for it and I think it's dumb to pay money for something that commemorates earning something you didn't earn, though the one case where I could understand it is if you were in one of the ineligible states or countries but you did actually earn it otherwise.

Still, it's like the coolest freebee ever but once you start paying money for it it's ridiculous because it's just a pewter key that doesn't do anything.

I will be curious though to see if anyone actually bids on this thing.

Then that guy is stupid, or who ever buys it is, that's a 500% mark up, as the contest rules stated the Key was worth $25.

I got my key as well. I snail mailed my form in, never got confirmation that they received it or that I won. Sure enough, it popped up on my doorstep this past Friday.

Awesome...
