A few notes for all those Skylanders collectors in the house: this E3 Limited Edition Skylanders Hot Dog toy is still brand spanking new, in its box with no bent corners, and has the 2013 E3 seal clearly shown on the corner. For what it’s worth, these things fetch a pretty penny on eBay, but we’re confident our readers will want to keep it for themselves. Presuming that’s the case, winning it for free would be a great way to save yourself some hassle and money. Again, it’ll never be available at retail, and was only available at the E3 trade show.
