As of right now, you have 23 hours and 30 minutes left to purchase tickets to our auction. Here’s a mega gallery of auction items (that STILL only accounts for a small portion of what will be present on July 4th!) to help convince you that you need to get a ticket ASAP! They won’t be sold at the door!
Some of you still don’t believe that we’re building the greatest Rooster Teeth auction in history. Well today I’m going to try to convince you once and for all by showing off items from two Rooster Teeth legends and a tiny preview of our amazing array of unique Halo merchandise! And without further ado…
First up, we’ve got comics by Luke McKay!
If Luke is one Rooster Teeth legend, who could the second be? How about the most badass, art creating, chainsaw wielding lady out there: Griffon Ramsey! We’ve got a one-of-a-kind piece from Griffon in our auction, a chainsaw carved owl!
And of course, where would Rooster Teeth be without Halo? We’ve got a TON of special Halo merchandise in our auction that’ll be spread throughout a variety of different bundles and such. Check out this quick sample!
Between these and the rest of the auction items we’ve shown off in regular posts, in the SideQuest Spotlight, and in Project 10, how could you possibly let this event pass you by? There’s not much time left to get your tickets to the auction! They’ll only be on sale until June 27th, and we don’t expect to have any available to sell at the door! What are you waiting for? Go get yours now!
I was going to do a post for each of these pieces individually (And still will!) but I really couldn’t wait to show you some of the super awesome artwork created by the Rooster Teeth Community for our auction!
Over the next few weeks we’ll be spotlighting each piece and artist individually right here on our site.
Have you been living under a rock? If so, then you might not know that in honor of RoosterTeeth’s 10th anniversary we are starting to unveil some of the items that will be available at our auction on July 4th right before RTX.
If the posters we unveiled yesterday didn’t impress you, maybe you’ll like what we have in store for you today! We’ve all heard the RT crew talk about the amazing Alamo Drafthouse, and just about every RT fan I’ve talked to wants to go at some point in their life. Well the Alamo wants to help make that trip even more special for a few RTX SideQuest attendees!
We have two bundles of Drafthouse merchandise, popcorn and drink vouchers, and gift certificates that were graciously donated by the Drafthouse for our auction! If you’re planning to visit the Drafthouse while in Austin for RTX, do it in style with one of these bundles! Each one has a shirt, a popcorn and fountain drink voucher, and a $10 food and drink certificate, along with a few more goodies!
One of the bundles is designed to be a “date night” package, so if you and a special someone want to spend an evening taking in a movie at the best theater around you can do so with some awesome Alamo Drafthouse pint glasses full of beer, free popcorn, and more!
A special thanks to the Alamo Drafthouse for donating these items for auction!
Are you not pleased? Well we’re really going to blow you away with what we have to show off
Today we’re revealing the first of our 2013 auction items… a trio of exclusive signed Halo 4 launch posters!
These posters were handed out at the Halo 4 launch party at the Microsoft Store in Austin, Texas. Two of them depict maps from the game (Erosion and Abandon), while the other is of Master Chief and Cortana.
These wonderful posters will be framed by the time the auction comes around, so you won’t have to worry about them being damaged!
What do you think? A good reveal for our first auction item?
Not impressed? Well maybe you should come back tomorrow for a bit of theater…
As you may remember, after the last SideQuest we held a survey. In it, we asked you what kind of items you’d like to see in a future SideQuest silent auction. If you’re thinking the most commonly requested items were Rooster Teeth merch and videogames…
… you’d be wrong. Completely. Overwhelmingly, the responses were for more RT community items. I seriously love that! Even though it’s maybe tough… I still think we got lucky on every spectacular artwork! So… this post is the start of the process for next year’s silent auction!
Donating to SideQuest’s Silent Auction
If you have something you’d like to donate, a creation of some sort that you’d like to have on display in front of hundreds of the biggest Rooster Teeth fans on Earth, to be auctioned with 100% of proceeds going to Child’s Play Charity, please fill out our donation form.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, there is no limit to what the community can devise.
Last year (which is on my top 10 coolest nights ever) included a customized portable XBOX 360…
Legos with a lot of love..
And even Gus cutouts!
Benefits of Donating
First, obviously, your piece will be featured in the largest auction of Rooster Teeth related items the world has ever seen! People from all around the world will be able to admire and bid on your art, all to benefit Child’s Play!
Additionally, you will be featured in our SideQuest Spotlight with a bio, a link to a website of your choice, and a thank you here and in the SideQuest group. In addition, you or someone of your choosing will be the Featured User on Rooster Teeth for a day! And we’re still brainstorming more stuff!
Many of you also expressed a desire for various other items. We aren’t a super-huge company with tons of resources at our disposal, but don’t worry. I’m sure we can round up a few things you’ll be impressed with. What kind of things? Well, here’s your first sneak peek of what you will see at the next auction!
Halo 4 Cortana and Master Chief poster signed by Jen Taylor and Steve Downes
Halo 4 Master Chief signed by Josh Holmes, Frank O Connor, Jen Taylor, David Ellis and Steve Downes
Cyanide and Happiness plushie (unsigned) and poster signed by creators Matt Melvin, Kris Wilson and Dave McElfatrick!
But wait! I saved the biggest news for last…
Project 10 – An Anniversary Prism
One of the guiding principles for RT SideQuest is develop cool, new ways to connect the RT Community. To that end, we’re trying something with the auction this year.
In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of RvB and Rooster Teeth, a full decade of creative achievement, we have convinced 10 artists, 5 RT employees and 5 RT community members, symbolizing the unique and fantastic relationship between the company and the community, to create interpretations of what it means to have 10 years of… well, everything here!
Ten artworks. Ten unique visions. One set. One artist for each year.
This collection will only be appearing together for one night at the SideQuest silent auction!
More information about 10, including all of our artists, will be revealed closer to the date.
This is not a top 10 list. Nor is it a contest. It is about celebration and interpretation. What we love, 10 years of it, through the eyes of those who live and work here.
We hope you enjoy seeing this special set at RTX SideQuest in July!
