    I need to learn to type faster. Got both sludgies in my cart as fast as possible and was already logged into PayPal, but still no go. I save lotsa of money doing this.

    Same. I feel there is zero chance if not lottery. Waste of energy waiting for that moment. At least there are too many toys to be had right now.

    Rich did a nice job with these. As usual, some people scored and some people didn't. Rich has done lottos, shop drops and in person show lottos. Kudos to both him and Paul, few people do releases in as varied an amount of ways.

    Agreed. I have been in this game long enough to not be devastated by not scoring. The website was glitch free and the offerings were lovely.

    i personally prefer the first to check out gets it. i never had luck with the hold in your cart thing and thought it was less fun since you sat refreshing to see if one had gotten dropped

    Yes, but at least you knew most of the time you weren't getting one if you couldn't even make it to the cart.

    Ether way there is always going to be some one that lucks out since both systems have pros and cons I guess. But I want to see some pics of the new stuff if anyone gets them.

    I was able to score both sludge demons and was very surprised. I didn't even consider the issue I read some had with checking out with two items, being kicked back because one was sold, and then the other selling out by the time they could check out again. That seems like a shitty format for bigcartel. I guess it's to make sure you still want to order without the sold items.

    It would be nice if bigcartel offered different selling options for different kinds of sales/products, but that would likely be cost prohibitive for many. The nice part about this new format is that you know instantly if you scored or not. I spent most past drops F5ing until they were gone. I was able to score doing that a few times, but on other drops, the F5ing could last for 20 minutes or longer waiting for someone to finally check out, only to end in disappointment.

    The same thing happened to me while trying to reserve a movie at redbox for my kids the other day. Someone had gotten the last copy while I was checking out. Not really a comparable disappointment :lol: but its how most things are sold these days. The best advice has already been said - be prepared by logging into paypal, having autofill set up on your browser, and be somewhere with a fast computer and internet. Those all worked for me.

    Overall a much improved drop with some really nice offerings!

    Actually you don’t. A lot of people can add to the carts right off the bat in fact everyone can so I feel more “broken hearts after completed payment” will happen this way (previously if added to the cart that assured that you scored as it was held for 10 min and you paid in that amount of time. And honestly if that could be changed to 2min that would make more sense because if your taking 10 min to check out then something isn’t right.) this time it was defiantly smooth and personally I’m not upset I didn’t score as the EMAIL stated this was the new method and it would be first to check out and pay gets it so it should have come to NO surprise to anyone if you read the email.

    However going through the checkout process and getting to pay pal and hitting the complete payment button to get reverted back to the site with an empty cart kinda blows IMO but I understand the new method and hey saves my wallet for actual shows at DV. Congrats to those who did get a piece the one offs were sure beautiful and I knew I had no chance but I hope we see more of those spiderweb eyes in the future.

    On the flip with this method it might stop the greedy from trying to get one of each offering as you’ll have to get to checkout the fastest so that extra time adding items will go along way from actual scores. Going forward this I’m sure will be the case and more people will be able to score in the long run.

    It was meant to be relative to the idea of F5ing for over 10 minutes. I guess instead of instant you could say at least you know within a minute whether you scored or not, compared to 10 minutes + with continuous F5 mashing
    I agree that changing it to a 2 minute cart hold would be much more reasonable.

    Yea I hear that. I mean once you get that “thanks for your purchase” that’s when the heart rate finally drops haha. But I do think if they did a 2 min then over all that would give someone enough time to checkout. Personally I have hit off a dropped cart after 10 min for my one and only SAM from two Halloween’s ago. But who grabbed one and then didn’t pay?? That’s the crazy part. But personally I’d rather the can’t add to cart because of inventory over getting reverted to an empty cart after entering all that info and completing payment. That’s just me & It won’t stop me from trying anyway!!!!

    The flip side of this was already kind of mentioned, and I think it's a very important point: On these type of drops, you can often lose everything by going for more than a single piece. It makes you really think about what you want the most. As is common with all these webshops, if you get to the final checkout while an item sells out, you have to start over again. This was a very smooth drop, and it seemed to go exactly as planned.

    With a cart hold, it would be trivial to add the whole catalog of drops to your cart.

    for people who are still typing: you need an autofiller. There seems to be genuinely no chance without one, unless you have very fast and accurate fingers.

    and already logged onto your paypal. I think that's what screwed me. I was so close then paypal asked for my password and confirmation on how I pay. Damn them!

    This was a solid drop. No over-sell, no real drama (that I know of), just a lot of disappointed people...but that is the norm for this hobby.

    I walked away empty handed too, but them's the breaks.

    Now show off those Doji's that having been landing!!!
    And the shower curtain too...I guess?

    Here are mine! The marbling is quite nice; it is hard to show just how nice it is in person.

    Great score and picture! :shock:

    While I didn't nab anything new this year yet I did manage to score the Skullbrain Doji. I think I bought it from Blurbleone but i don't remember 100%. I just now got around to taking a picture of the little guy. The base yellow vinyl work extremely well with these spray paints and mask.:)

    Both sets are amazing in person and really shine under the light. The previous drop I had no problems checking out with both sets ... The drop on Sunday kicked me out while paying. I guess if I didn't try to add the matching sludgie I may have got one but didn't want one without the other. I felt like I at least had a chance with the drop as I normally strike out on lottos. Just happy to score once a year with MVH pieces is great. I really look forward to an 24-48 hour pre-order though. I know that can be brutal work for the artist but it definitely gets the pieces in the hands of the true collector.

    Agreed; it absolutely made my day when I learned I'd have a shot at Pollution Monster
