I think this was mentioned before, but a while back.

People assumed the Custom Cody figure was a mini fig, possible Ep 3, not sure.

it's not a minigifure ... it's a brick built clone.



Note : according to the T&Cs on the back, you can only enter with the official form, no photocopies allowed!

Woah, when you say brick built clone, I immediately thought of megabloks *gasp*! Laughing

Thanks for the picture, bigospedros. It helps explain to people what I was saying.

i doubt it will be .... as I said, the Terms & Conditions state you need to enter with a printed form and nothing else.

Maybe it's a UK thing only, or maybe America will have the comp later. This is only giving a third away, so they may be saving some others for a later date.

Well, seeing as how the only address listed to enter is in the UK, I'd guess this contest is only for the UK.

As Dalek mentions, maybe they're planning on giving away another set of the Cody's in other parts of the world later on.

I'm pretty sure TLG will keep some for displays in stores and at conventions.

Yes, they had one dispalyed in the TRU I was at. And a parts list.
