by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Winner is skywes27!]

Our friends at Sony have given us two amazing Infamous: Second Son statues to hand out to the Destructoid community! These 12" Polystone behemoths feature Second Son's protagonist, Delsin Rowe, standing atop a diorama of destruction holding a real metal chain. Only 150 of these were made and their estimated retail value is $200, so these are true collector's items!

We'll be giving away one statue here on the site and another during our exclusive Infamous: Second Son playthrough with Chris Zimmerman of Sucker Punch tomorrow at 2pm Pacific over on Dtoid TV. To get your name in the hat for the first, tell us in the comments below what you're looking forward to doing most once you get your hands on Second Son! Being from the Pacific Northwest, I can't wait to get my feet wet on the rainy streets of Seattle... and then set them on fire with a blast of neon! What about you?

You have until this Sunday, March 9 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter, and the contest is open to anyone in the U.S. Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). It's pretty great!

Those sexy devils at Devolver Digital have given us 10 codes for Shadow Warrior: Special Edition to hand out to lucky Dtoiders!

Happy Friday everyone!

Ten lucky winners will walk away with a free code for their platform of choice. Please make sure to specify in your comment which platform you prefer (Steam or 3DS eShop).

The contest will end, Sunday, January 4th at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time.
