I doubt it--it would probably take a very skilled attorney, in fact, to successfully argue that the sales contest was not intentionally misleading if not outright fraudulent. If they never explicitly stated that the prize was an action figure and did not disabuse the staff of the notion that it was not a car, they would be fucked. Which seems to be the case.

Well i assume they had on paper that they would win a Toyota, because if it was a verbal "you win a Toy Yoda" than this chick would have no case.
