    I love these colors just not really into the robotness, I like the normal Gorilla Ju figure sculpt best. :D :D

    I think if Hirota-san choose a another color for the middle it would be better. That blue just doesn't fit in my opinion. But still nice colors.

    Sweet, two happy people! That is what SB is all about (or so I want to think). Wow, even though I agree that the pink is not the best example of the MG, it is a nice trade. Glad it worked out.

    With all the additional colors, instead of pink, wouldn't this more properly described as Hawaiian?

    Man I was really hoping to get a shot at the pink mg! I wonder how he picked the people that got the chance to buy it. And I really wonder how impossible it is going to be to get a mini gorilla ju once he releases them. Do you think he will make larger runs for the minis or will they be the same as for the regular sized ones?

    My understanding was that he offered it for sale OR as a trade for a Gorilla-ju. Either way, he could have just bought the thing and dropped it on the bay. At least someone here got luckier than most of us.

    LOL

    The pink is cool. Not my favorite, but it's cool. I didn't get offered so don't PM me about it.

    NOW BRING ON THE SMALL ONES!

    I Love the pink and was watching for a lottery like most. Slim hope - but anyone out there not sold on it - let me know.

    Well he didn't exactly enter the lottery intentionally - the pink version wa just randomly offered to him so it wasn't pre-planned trade flipping

    LOL...I don't care if it had been pre-planed or not(It's still instant flipping). I just find it strange that people are patting him on the back like he's doing some big favor. Plus this is the kind of crap that caused Hirota to change the way he sells.

    One can only hope maybe he will change his mind and go back to the lottery method instead of giving a select few the option to buy and possibly flip, trade flip...whatever. Regardless of how he sells as long as there is hype some people will find away to use them to their advantage.
