    Correction, there is 8 solid Ojisan colors so far, possible one more later.

    Here they are:

    I got the dark purple and dark blue from there. Now looking at them I really wish I had that green one and the lighter orange.

    That kinda sucked for the completists that got the 6 so they could have all. D;

    i dont care too much as they are for customs... but it does seem a bit misleading that the sales pitch was buy 6 and your guaranteed one of each color.

    The factory uses left over vinyl which is the reason why the price is as cheap as it is and also the reason why lulu doesnt know the colors. Once the left over vinyl is used up they have to go to the next vinyl color. So if you guys wanted guaranteed colors then you would have had to pay regular price.

    I have mixed feeling about the colors. I don't mind not getting all the colors because they are so close together that it is not a big deal to me. However, if I had ordered 6 not gotten a green or blue w/glitter, I would have felt robbed because the colors are too similar. The color range is pretty weak if this is all of them: no red, yellow, grey or some of the colored clears that Luke has used recently. I like the idea of adding in a chase color but this doesn't seem to be the case here.

    I would be up for a monthly or twice a month random color shooting blank program like they did recently with the Ferg collab. I wouldn't even need to know what color is coming as long as they don't have any dupes. The sculpt is simple, cheap, and Luke seems to enjoy pouring random colors whenever he can.

    So...sorry but once again.

    Did everyone receive their customs from last years Create Your Own Monster?

    I've sent 4+ emails to Amy and ZERO reply.

    Just picked up the clear blanks. Love them. Tried to do some inserts, but didn't like anything I came up with. Maybe I will revisit this in the future, but for now, they remain true blanks.

    Oh! Oops. I was going for solidarity but instead I delivered snark - seems I should have looked a little closer before submitting.

    Love those ghosties behind those WF beauties, Kingboy D! Nice snap.

    I think there was something in the last Lulu newsletter saying that Luke is still working on the Create Your Own Monsters/thanks for your patience/they are a lot of work/soon. :D

    ^ Those monsters were leftovers from the SMFU show. I'm guessing this is going to be a new Blobpus run.

    I know Luke is still overwhelmed with catching up on the releases he has already promised, but has anyone seen anything in regards to the astronaut figure. This was one of the figures I was most excited about this year, and am hoping it evolves into sofubi form.
