Bandai Ushers in an Ultimate Holiday Season with the "Ben 10: Ultimate Alien Go-Kart Sweepstakes"
Tis the season for turbo-charged fun as Bandai America Incorporated revs up the holiday season with its “Ben 10: Ultimate Alien Go-Kart Sweepstakes.” Beginning on 10/10/10 and continuing for ten weeks leading into this year’s holiday season, consumers will be able to enter for a chance to win an exclusive Ben 10 Mark 10-style go-kart, among other cool weekly prizes inspired by Cartoon Network’s top-rated, Emmy Award-winning animated series, by visiting www.bandai.com/uasweepstakes
“The line continues to exemplify our commitment to delivering inventive, design-forward products that spur children’s imagination and offer Ben 10 fans creative playtime experiences to enjoy well into the New Year.”
The limited edition go-kart will make its public premiere at New York Comic Con, where attendees can have a commemorative photo taken with the vehicle, and receive Ultimate Alien mini-posters (while supplies last), on Comic Con “Kids Day,” Sunday, October 10.
Entering the “Ben 10: Ultimate Alien Go-Kart Sweepstakes” is as easy as voting for a favorite Ultimate Alien. Kids and fans ages 6-11 years-old can select their favorite Ben 10 alien and track its progress on the Alien Leader Board to become the Ultimate Alien. Participants can enter the sweepstakes once a day and one lucky winner per week will receive a Ben 10: Ultimate Alien toy prize package, including the latest Ben 10 toys and videogame, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction from D3Publisher. The grand prize winner will go “Full Force” when they slip behind the wheel of their custom Ben 10 Mark 10-style gas-powered go-kart equipped with an exclusive driving helmet. “Hero Time” doesn’t end there, as they will also receive a Ben 10: Ultimate Alien toy package.
“Ben 10 super-charges the holiday season for Bandai America as we bring consumers not only the ultimate in sweepstakes prizes but also the innovative new Ultimate Alien toy line,” said Mark Schaffner, Executive Vice President of Toys for Bandai America Incorporated. “The line continues to exemplify our commitment to delivering inventive, design-forward products that spur children’s imagination and offer Ben 10 fans creative playtime experiences to enjoy well into the New Year.”
As the holiday season nears, entrants will also be able to create their ultimate wish list of Ben 10 toys to send to friends and family when they visit the website to enter the sweepstakes or vote for their favorite aliens. Inspired by the popular Cartoon Network action-adventure franchise, the Ben 10: Ultimate Alien toy line includes action figures, role-play, vehicles, and its patent-pending Alien Creation System toys that allow kids to use their imagination to create and combine thousands of aliens.
