All you have to do for your chance to win is leave a contributing comment on any of the stories or newer photo archive galleries on our site. Every time you join the conversation, you'll have a shot at taking one of this stunning set home, but remember we're looking for comments with substance so 'fail' or 'LOL' style posts won't make the cut. The winner will be randomly selected and notified in the thread with their comment. We will publish notifications when we select winners and the winners will have a seven days (one week) to reply back to us with their shipping information. If they do not contact us within the given period, a new winner will be selected, so make sure to keep your eyes on our front page and ensure your Disqus settings allow you to receive reply notifications. The Rancho Obi-Wan Membership Kit will be shipped directly from Rancho Obi-Wan, and as such, it is important to know that any International winner may have to pay duty and VAT charges.
Do note, chances are good that we won't select winners from the comments on this story, so go check out the stories that interest you and let your voice be heard.
We won't set an end date to this giveaway until just before it ends and as always, the winner will be selected randomly.
Now go, have fun, and good luck!
