Sega Is Giving Out Ryo Hazuki Forklift Figurines

Shenmue fans in North America and Europe might want to keep an eye on Sega's various web presences for your chance to score one of 1,000 limited edition Ryo Hazuki figures, complete with the greatest accessory of them all - the forklift.

As you no doubt know, Ryo will have a chance to give the old forklift a spin in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing later this month, but racing Ryo is fleeting. A 7 inch tall figurine, on the other hand, is forever, at least until you break it, lose track of it, or sell it on eBay.

So how do you get one?

Ryo fans in the U.S. and Canada who've signed up for a free Sega Pass account can enter a sweepstakes to win one of 75 of the collectibles just by entering their email, password, and phone number on a web page.

Plans for European fans are still being ironed out, but the European community team has set aside 49 of the figures for the purposes of handing them out to fans. Stay tuned to the European Sega Blog for your chance to place an Asian man driving a forklift on your mantle.
