I'll let Jerome Gonyeau, Marketing Regent at WizKids, explain it:
"Here at Wizkids corporate, we’ve reserved fifty boosters of Marvel Galactic Guardians HeroClix, three colossal Galactus figures from the Galactic Guardians HeroClix set, and fifty Marvel Chaos War Fast Forces packs. Each of these prizes will be giving out to those of you who can complete Starship Hero.
