If that sales goal is not meet figure will be held for a future donation drive.
There will also be several smaller prizes given as entrance prizes which include Combiner Wars Legendsamd RID 2015 Delixe figures donated by Premium Collectables and a couple of Takara Transformers Go figures donated by J2Oz Toys.

Whichever method of payment you desire to make, please DO NOT put “raffle” in the comments section. Please put your screen name, email address and contact number in the comments section. (Please refer to Giveaway rules and regs in TCCA file section for further details).
Because of the prize size we are required by law to supply ticket purchasers with their physical tickets. Upon payment being received we will contact purchasers to organise postage of tickets.
The Giveaway will run for November and two weeks into December. Last ticket purchases will be Midnight, December 15th 2015, and the draw will happen on Wednesday 16th December at 7pm AEDST. Prizes that are not on pre order will be shipped the following day and hopefully arrive under winners Christmas trees before Christmas Eve.
As each winner is announced they will have first pick of a desired prize, 2nd gets 2nd pick and so on until prizes are gone. Winners will be called via supplied contact number when their name is drawn so please have your phone handy on that evening.
Again all the giveaway rules and regs are in the Tcca File section for your reference.

Entrants must be contactable upon purchase of tickets and on day of prize draw (16th December at 7pm AEDST)

There is no limit to the number of tickets that can be purchased
Physical Tickets can be sent out to entrants paying via PayPal or bank transfer upon request. If you do require your Physical ticket please mention so when paying. Please be aware if making a ticket purchase after December 8th your physical ticket may not arrive before the end of the giveaway.
Purchase confirmation may take up to 24hrs. Work and life sometimes gets in the way of things so please be patient.
PAYING VIA PAYPAL
While PayPal is the preferred method of payment for tickets, some rules need to be followed. PayPal do not allow Raffle ticket funds to be made using their service. Because of this, anyone putting “Raffle” in the payment comments section will have their payment returned and tickets removed from the draw. There’s no leeway with this, if we want to continue using PayPal we must follow their rules.
For both PayPal and bank transfer, please put the following in the comments section
These details will be recorded on the physical ticket books and also recorded digitally for the period of the giveaway to assist in contacting winners and shipping prizes as quickly and easily as possible
We like to think that you are donating to the club, and in return getting a raffle ticket as a thank you. Because of this no refunds will be issued to entrants after the final day of ticket purchase (midnight 15th December 2015).
Previous to this time, if a entrant wishes to have their donation refunded and ticket/s removed from draw you may do so. Please email the club to request a refund.
