EDIT: I see my post is used as “confirmation” that the only way to get mini Mr Sparkles is from Gamescom. This is NOT true. What is true is that so far, those of us who went to gamescom are apparently the only people who have gotten a code yet. But ArenaNet also said that more codes will be given for events and to fansites to give out. So just because so far, we are the only ones with codes, does not mean we will stay the only ones. Thankfully, because I think it’s a very pretty miniature and I hope that everybody who wants one will be able to get one sooner or later!
We went to Gamescom yesterday and also to ArenaNet’s community event in the evening. I’ll write more about those later this weekend (Gamescom was meh, the event was awesome!), but I wanted to show you this little golem first. During the community event, we got a bag with some goodies in it and one of those was a code card (just like the ones we got for the in game t-shirts) for mini Mr Sparkles. I love minis, so the first thing I did this morning (after making coffee, of course), was entering the code and go for a walk with my new golem!
Don’t be sad if you don’t have one and want one. While we were not provided with any codes to give away, I am pretty certain – no, actually, I AM certain – that there will be events where you will at least have a chance to win one… and PAX, maybe? Though I’m not certain about that one. That’s just a guess. ^^
