Thanks, and I agree! I was just thinking that we have 50 and 100% Mecha Zags now.
Well, the slushy residue from the biggest snow event in 40 years is making my bag a day late. The nerve of those slackers at USPS. Don't they realize we are talking about their well being vs my lucky bag!
Yes this is the first year with two versions and the last year of the zodiac calendar. @animator is right, pre-snake figures gifts only and not part of the lucky bags.
I personally know one Zodiac pig came in a bag
As far as I know Kiyoka made 2 head versions of Zodiac this year. Because this year Zodiac is the wild boar in Japan. So that is for Japan only. Other country collector will get the original pig if you are lucky .
So happy to get a little big today. Thanks to angelabby
So the pig is in place of a vendorbot, instead of in addition to?
I clarified between the hand types for the black Mecha figs based on IG. Please let me know if I'm wrong.
- blank - gun hand
- painted - claw hand
- blank - claw hand
- painted - gun hand
Yes, right. The pig is in the bag of vendorbot.
Loving every bit of these bags! So much variety, something for everyone, and so many old friends making their return! Now to find the painted Bako, Hedo, Mib, and any other surprise goodies!
wow, simply wow
Man, seeing these pictures makes me so happy that I pulled the trigger on one of these bags. I can't wait for it to show up!
Here's my bag. It's my first Gargamel LB ever... Usually I wait till the bags drop and watch from the sidelines. I was excited for it, and now that it's here... I guess "underwhelmed" is my reaction.
Blank Zag is cool, would've preferred a Miborah, but I know they're usually the more rare of the two.
This Hedorah is probably my least favorite of all the Gargamel standard-sized sculpts. And as soon as I saw one was available in the bags, I knew that would be one of the figures I'd get. I laughed when I pulled it out of the bag.
The Vendorbots are cool. I love these guys and I'm glad I got the cylindrical one in a Clear.
The micros- A Smogun and two Goggleman... eh. I have micros of all of these. I was hoping for a Mega Junktion.
So all and all.... meh.
Looking at the other bag variations, there's definitely some pieces I like a lot, and some others that are just as meh as what I got. I was hoping for much more Color, and instead got two dark, drab toys.
I actually think the Hedoran is one of the better pulls from this year. The simple silver-on-black paint scheme reminds me of some of the Hukkokudo paint schemes, or maybe early RxH. Very understated and classy.
But I do agree that they should have mixed it up with something more colorful for the other standard.
I think you got ALL the Zags!!!
I agree with @hellopike ... Drab , dark bags this year. And while Thrashout colorways are ok ( got the TO Garudan last year), feel there are too many in these bags.
Almost like Gargamel found a bulk sale on black vinyl & red / silver paint ...
No Deathras 2 years in a row ... hope they haven't decided to never offer them in LBs again
Nice vendor bots though
I didn't pull the trigger because a bag like this was my fear. There are nice toys, to be sure, but my collection is generally comprised of bright neon colors and playful paint schemes. This darker bag with only vendorbots does not call out to me. Although if anyone has a pink tetran micro they don't want...
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!!! Deathra I'm pretty sure was offered last year or in 2017. Here is the proof lmao.
I haven't opened it up yet. Plan on fixing that soon lol.
Or even a painted mini/micro to flesh the bag's out better would have been cool to.
Pretty sure there were no Deathras last year ... so 2018 & 2019 = no Deathras. The coke bottle was from 2017 ??
Coke Deathra was 2017.
Here is a lucky bag master list, by year, to reference that @bryce_r put together:
Yes 2017 was indeed the year of at least the coke Deathra. I had to look up some pics to confirm that it was.
These two look phenomenal together.
Can’t wait to get them together with their other TO brethren..
