    Hello people , sorry for too much caos with this ...
    As toy maker , collector and artist this particular action represent to me many bad things around , Right now im in a Very bad situation as many of you know and will keep it private just let you know im here explaining myself as respect for all you collectors , respect for this fórum and shirahama as an artist i really admire (i talked early with him about this going on ). Right now im desperate trying to resolve this unexpected situation in my life and im sure in some near future i have big projects as always before but sincerely i feel like going backwards in this days , i feel on depression because this was hardly gifts i made to myself before as result of many hard working just like many of you , and every piece represent all enforcement i did before to the point i become just only collecting kumons but now sincerely is just one of a few things gone trying to resolve my situation and believe me this collection is nothing compared with .
    Some risk asking myself was if $.99 auction will work for me and dont care because i just trying to get back some of the money i put into this figures and i was pretty sure most probable that didnt go on .99 but i wasnt sure this is will work loosing money because many obviously get it from people around here , i obteined most of this overpriced and yes i dont care because i just feel i deserve to myself every piece i get it and for me every piece in my hands i paid worth every cent to me not only a Price thing as i telling you this figures are not easy to get in the market and for me not even on those prices it was the way i obteined because i have as many of you to deal with many basic things to sourvive daily but sacrifice after hard work from a piece of art from an artist you admire is unvalued sometimes , now i have this pieces as auction on ebay after years and some people think its for bussines , just if have any idea what represent to obtein to me one of this pieces , i post here in the fórum looking for other pieces i ask people that sell to me a piece for other pieces and wait for years ...
    I ask vendors on ebay with related ítems from shirahama and now very confused by people , today i received a few messages from people around and i really aprecciate all support all words and feel like im not by my own even if there is from internet friends i aprecciate like real friends to me , but what is wrong with this last coment ¿??? after a few days with no answere … i get a message from a vendor from ebay with doble intentions offering a kumon early today just to get the message at here playing with other people feelings … as i told you im waiting for a few pieces i get for high price and in my plans are to put all them on ebay and very sure this pieces will lose money because i paid tooo much, anyways this message was offering a kumon and tough getting a rainy kumon for low Price from this ebay vendor ( jerzy777 ) will help me out on the others but i read this last comment from JERSZY 777 is very sick to me to see that people just make this with double intentions, please if you dont have any intentions to really help dont judge people as people you think you know, i received messages as support and offers from members offering free high priced vinyl figures to help me on my situation and i rejected this no because i didn't need it , just very thankful with this people but i will make this bymyself … im just in a very bad situation i will live through , yes i sacrificed my collection but i will not sacfice myself or my family .

    Thanks for your comprehension …

    If you are selling figures, ones you have and ones you are still waiting on, which you plan on selling to try and raise money for a desperate situation. Why are you approaching people to buy new ones? That was my only point. Now obviously none of us are financial wizards as we collect plastic toys, but spending more money on the same toy before your situation has been resolved seems like an odd thing to do.

    I can be his friend. Send him over! :mrgreen:
    (couldn't resist.....)

    Anyway, those are bright looking!! Were there any yellow Kumons from that blank squishy release? I'm curious how different they'd be.

    This one is lemon yellow and not squishy. Also comes with a cool Sour Lemon sticker.

    Since Kazu (Itokin Park) is also part of The Sour Lemon and he will be present, we will be showcasing his work first. Out of respect for him it wouldn't be cool to be dealing with both releases at once.

    Regarding the time, I'm thinking in the afternoon so people can take care of their other purchases and then have lunch. But I'm open to suggestions. Also thinking of doing it by lottery, but again, open to suggestions. Just want to make it fair and as stress free as possible.

    If u want stress free go lotto. Because if u say like 2 or 4pm first come replease, people will just line up for an hour+ in front of other booths. But id also be aware of other lottos, like PK at 3pm, lot of buyers will be tied up with that from 3-4pm at least. Maybe a late morning lotto? 11am? Splurrt is at 12p. Or late afternoon like 5pm. Leave something for late arrivals to score? I dunno just spitballing here.

    Thank you very much for that information. Based on that, let's go with a 2pm lotto. We'll start handing out tickets and taking names at 11am. Then 2pm we'll post up the winning numbers or names. There are less than 20 of these available FYI.

    I think thats perfect. Especially not having to be present at the drawing to win. That way if someone is caught up in a line or at the blobpus lotto they can still win. U can set a deadline for pickup like 4 or 5 and then have alternates ready to go

    Cardboard spaceship at SDCC just did names and phone numbers, that way u can txt or call the alternates

    I was just going to say that too...at SDCC Cardboard Spaceship had 2 high demand pieces. They took down your name and cell phone number, and at a set time the winner would get a text.

    You should specify that the winner needs to be present to win, and if they don't reply within xx amount of minutes you'll text a replacement winner.

    Does this mean the 'Nerd Thunderdome Deathmatch' concept was nixed? :cry:
