    does anybody know what the slim arm with detailed hand on hxSaigansho's blog means? It might be a new ape?

    If it makes anybody feel better, I've entered every release (but maybe one) for 4 straight years and NEVER won.

    Same with me. No luck at all. I always wonder how many people apply for the lotteries. 4,000 people for 25-35 toys?
    Although on Instagram you see some people that have a lot of the releases.

    I have the absolute worst luck entering on time for these, I've been able to enter maybe 2 on time. I also forget to check but when I do I'll check one day and then not the next and without fail checking the day after that only to see that I've missed the opportunity to enter.. Although I still do it anyway :lol:

    This MG2 release was my favorite so far. I love midnighty colorways. :)

    Might be my terrible computer settings, but the belt doesn't seem green to me at all, looks more like a dark gunmetal metallic grey. MG2 is great, though I still think the original has the edge for my own tastes. A really great looking toy though, good luck to all the deserving people who entered on time.

    Some people have a lot of money to burn.

    No luck here, but I don't even care anymore. It's just fun times.

    LOL I've long since forgotten about this line actually. It's only when lotteries come up here after the fact and someone posts that I remember "Oh yeah Gorilla Ju!" I'd be more into it if it was accessible, which is the opposite logic of many (not all) of it's collectors. I can think of better ways to spend the kind of money people throw down and if I were to do it on a toy (which I never do anymore) -vintage toys beat this line all day long!

    anyone else notice how many people were posting about this lottery on IG? I thought the unspoken rule of toy lotteries is that we don't speak about them. At any rate, the only HXS I won was 50 of 50 and I'm pretty sure I was a last minute replacement. But whatever, cool with me. I still screamed out loud when I read my email that day.

    Hirota asks for Instagram accounts in lottos now, and I think people do a lot of smooching in their posts to plea their case for how bad they "need" it. I personally think it's a bit sad to pander that hard, but it doesn't at all surprise me anymore. The only posts I find a bit strange are the ones that's a stock photo of the release and a "Good luck everyone!" caption. Could simply be in good spirits/fun(which I'm totally all for/support), ornsomethin' else.
