The thing is, the Kaiju Prince line has exploded on the flipper market due to popularity. Mandarake is selling the sets for ¥20000-¥25000 and some of the individuals go for sometimes over ¥10000. It's nuts. The last show he attended a bunch of his figures showed up the next day on Yahoo Japan, so he's stated he's going to only concentrate on online sales from now on. I can see where he's coming from. I think only now his method is potentially getting newer buyers less of a chance because there are so many new lottery requests. I probably enter 8-10 out of every 12 monthly lotteries but have lost sometimes as well. Edit: ugh the latest KP set is ALREADY on Yahoo Japan for ¥18500 and they haven't even shipped yet.
