    No...someone was given both. Before conspiracy theories start, this is a pic from a special friend of Hirota's in Japan.

    Thanks for clearing that up. Saw this reposted on Instagram and thought well I'll be... Then came and saw Andy posted the pick and your clarification, it makes the most sense.

    Pic posted for enjoyment NOT judgement!

    Friends hooking-up and helping out friends is the coolest aspect of this 'hobby!'

    Or most likely HS made extras to give away to his friend that was not part of the lottery count.

    Hirota can manage to do everthing like what he wants here and it's cool to help friends , I know.

    But this friend gets both with the tag has the serial-number #1 and #3. If you know where this pic comes from, you know what I mean and,therefore,I don't think "most likely" he made extras now.

    And Hirota announced like he made these unpainted King Gorila-ju a lot along with the requests from many fans in this time on his blog, so I believe this release is for his fans who don't get the luck to buy it still mainly.

    I don't know how was going on behind but IF hirota makes 40 -1 and 30 -1, it's not fair, I feel.
    Anyways, I'm looking forward to his next release.

    It absolutely is completely fair of him to make however many he makes, and then gift them however he wants. He could make 90 of them and give 89 to friends and sell 1, and it would still be fair.

    Fair schmair. He made them and he can do whatever the fuck he wants with them.

    Even though I didn't come up lucky with this lotto, I'm glad that I still have the chance to enter. At least it isn't a closed list.

    Yes unless he announced he made and sell total "90" on his blog before lottery begins and that's my point.

    By the way, I don't intend to show "disrespectful" thought on his business or created stuffs, so I want to make it clear here and sorry for my poor english for that.

    Anyways, congrats the winners!

    Nice omake Rich! So far it looks like all of them are different(Maybe a way to figure out who keeps what).

    Nice marble on that rich! I like HS's marble, very subtle yet still impressive. Thanks to everyone who has posted pics for us to enjoy. As always, more are always welcome.

    I believe most of the recent omakes (last 2 years or so) have generally being different. Possibly using remnants and surplus vinyl from other projects (speculation).

    I'm thinking a way to track them as well.

    As for vinyl, I'm thinking it's test pulls for experiment and possible releases. It's much easier and cheaper to test pull an omake size toy then full size fig. Build up a surplus of these and use them as omake. Other companies do this for lucky bags.

    But like you it's just speculation.

    If I had my own way to pull vinyl like he does, I would be trying all sorts of tests to see what looks best and how to perfect it.
