    Hey gang,

    Did anybody ever actually see one of these prizes awarded or available for sale anywhere? I remember the promotion was some time ago now and required the entrant to take out a phone contract as well as buy a Toshiba item, can't recall the exact details, but the prize for the first 60 was a red-boxed Alternators US Prowl. The thing is, the doors read "Satellite Patrol" instead of "Highway Patrol".

    Has anyone ever seen one of these or were the original promo images all we are going to get?

    Any confirmation as to the prize being cancelled due to lack of take-up?

    Many thanks in advance.

    All the best
    Maz

    I remember there also was Convoy made of silver awarded with a purchse of something similar...that's a while ago, too. I don't recall seeing the actual product of neither.

    I googled but came up with nothing :( 

    edit; I found a listing of the promotion and it's July~Aug 2005 Nothing in wayback, but I am not good at digging.

    edit2; Here's Convoy, but the original link to Takarand is gone and replaced with other online movie provider. As far as I can see Prowl campaign was supposed to be after silver Convoy but there's no mention of it. (It was available with a purchase of Toshiba Moba-vision)

    I've actually been trying to find information on this myself recently, Maz.

    Apparently, Takarand has changed owners. The website now redirects here:
    www.ebisu.fm/

    It's quite possible the prizes were never sent out before the change.
