Once again, we are proud to partner with the Midwest Comic Book Association in support of their chosen charities with another sweet PC gaming rig! Their premiere event has been renamed “MSP Comicon” now, replacing “SpringCon” as the moniker – but the event remains just as awesome and entertaining as ever. As the name implies, there’s comic books and related stuff (like toys, posters, etc.) as far as the eye can see – but also gaming, movies & TV stuff, art, collectibles, and all other manners of pop culture interests…not to mention regular appearances by groups like the 501st Legion: Vader’s Fist and the MN RollerGirls! Yup. Stormtroopers and roller derby girls. If a fight ever breaks out, our money is on the RollerGirls BTW. Hint: they’re not really Stormtroopers…but the RollerGirls are real.
But we digress…feast your eyes upon this complete computer system, which will be raffled away with proceeds benefiting charities – this is a seriously sweet system that you could walk away with practically for free (tickets will be $2…c’mon, what else are you going to do with two measly bucks?):

For what it’s worth, we decided to name the system the Polar Vortex – which seems to fit with it’s snowy color scheme, but also because it’s been so freaking cold up here in the Great White North lately. Anyway, be sure to get down to the 2015 MSP Comicon and buy your raffle tickets! Need not be present to win…but you do need to buy a ticket! And seriously…how could you miss the con anyway?
