Hopefully I can get lucky with some Halloween magic
Trolls! Sludge Demons! and Sams! My head is spinning. I hope I can at least get one!
which is more effective? hoping or wishing?
i hope/wish for a daytime drop please!
ahhhhh shattered dreams!
Whaaaa.... Whered that come from?!
wow!!! that blank
Anyone else feel like today's Sam release felt impossible? All the Sams and the One-Offs were all claimed the second they were posted.
Seconds, sold out in seconds.
Sucks for me.
Good for Rich and my wallet.
people have to be using an auto add to cart bot or something.
3 years chasing sam but when i finally get him it'll be worth it
BOTS BOTS BOTS
I wonder how many DM's and such Ed has received over that blank. Looks rad, though!
The online drops had to be super low numbers, I'm guessing. I haven't checked the site, but a few MVH toys vs hundreds of fans is going to garnish some broken internet, shattered dreams, and few extremely happy people. All part of the game, and Rich always delivers.
yep, it is no longer possible to manually purchase a timed release that is popular on bigcartel due to the automated scripts that are being used now.
i expect many of the three releases i was attempting to purchase from bigcartel the "old-fashioned" way over the past two days will shortly be headed to flippers.
i'd certainly love to be wrong about this, so perhaps there is still hope we will hear from someone here who was indeed able to manually snag something.
anyway, enough of me griping, those sure were pretty FABLULOTASTICAL-looking toys, super-impressive!
Very true.. Now I can't wait for the pics. Three years I've been chasing a Sam but no luck just wasent my time. That Bernie gremlin however wow what a surprise came up empty on him but will definitely be looking for future releases. What an insane week of releases from not only rich but so many greats. I can't complain to much as I did get an eight legged related email. Happy Halloween all!
I'm super sorry so many couldn't score.
I had to use the shop this time. With so many releases for this Halloween I couldn't do it through the lotto set up. I has to use the shop so I could keep everything tracked.
Being a one man operation it would have been to much work to handle.
you can't please everyone all the time, sir!
it's definitely no fault of yours, and you *should* be looking to make things as easy on you as they can be - gotta take care of number one, mister.
Well fuck my god-damn life I tried to add the razor-blade Sam immediately and kept seeing the availability at the half way mark so I refreshed over and over again praying one would land in the cart but no such luck. amazing drops, wow... unreal.
Bravo Mr. Montanari...!!!! Those were some truly wicked one offs..
No apologies necessary Rich. You have been very fair with all of your releases whether it be lotto, online shop, events, etc. It is what it is. Keep doing what you love. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. But would it kill you to show me some more favoritism and give me all I want? lol joking. But seriously I need a Troll or a Witch when that finally is release for my Berserker Witch Hunter. And a Leviathan. Also a Death Sludge. And what other crazy cool toys you have planned in the future!
Jesus ed you dont want that... is unpainted gid not pink!!!
Send him over here....
SB members on their way to Rich's house.
But he looks so good with my blank Toxigon also.
Not as good as he would look leading my army of GID madness!!!
You lucky sum beeeetch!!!!
If bots are being used, well then that's a bummer. Wednesday I was able to score an unpainted sludgie after all had been swooped into people's carts. I kept refreshing and trying over and over and it finally added into my cart. With today's drop, I decided to forego the Sam and go for Bernie. I have been fortunate in the past to win a Sam and I really wanted a Bernie and had no problems adding it to my cart.
With that said, there will definitely be times of frustration when the figure you want is just not destined to be yours. I know, I have been there many times. The amount of love Rich puts into his work, it's understandable that his fanbase has increased greatly. Over time I have learned that you win some and lose some. Yes, it can be frustrating but hang in there.
Keep up the amazing work Rich!
It seemed like the moment thing went up they were sold out or hanging in ppls carts before even a minute hit Friday tonight. It was definitely frustrating for both today and Thursdays drops but like you i was lucky enough to be able to get a painted rotten pumpkin sludge demon. So ill be excited to add him to the 2 that i have from this year.
This is my collection so far. And the weird thing is out of ALL the MVH pieces the sludge demons have been the easiest of the entry pieces for me to obtain.
