Trukz.com Giving Away the Most Awesome, Giant 8FT Robot In the World

Dublin, Ireland

30th October 2008

OMAC Industries, the collective mad people behind Trukz.com, have managed to get their hands on one of the biggest all-metal robots in the world. This giant robot (which is modeled on one that transforms into a long haul truck, hence the connection), stands at about 8ft tall (that’s taller than Yao Ming) and is made from scrap metal collected from vehicle junkyards. Being of a rather generous nature (it’s possible we were drunk when we decided this), we’ve agreed to give it away to the Trukz.com community. At this stage you should see the attached photos to appreciate the sheer awesomeness of this competition.

By the way, in case you didn’t know, Trukz.com is the web’s leading online trucking game. It’s often described as a“trucking RPG”. You can read more at the bottom of the release.

Why would you want a giant robot, we hear you ask? How could you NOT want one?!? Useful for warding off burglars, wolves and Decepticons, these guys are the 21st century equivalent of elastic bands. Just don’t try flicking them because you’ll probably break your hand.

To have a chance to win this, all you have to do is drive 10,000 miles (in-game, obviously) between now and November 30th, 3008. If you’re not already in the game, just head on over to www.trukz.com and register. It’s all completely free so you’ve really no excuse whatsoever.

Our draw will take place on Monday 1st December 2008 and the winner will be announced on Trukz.com
