    I received the shirt, great quality and I feel like the graphic is larger than the preview pic which is nice

    First time that I've seen one of these. I believe these were prizes from the Zagoran paint contest back in 2006. Same header as the flesh base Zagoran, but with smaller text that says "Baketsu Blue".

    This mini Zag was one of the other prizes from that contest:

    The standard Zag looks like it is a darker blue than the mini Zag. Funny that one was painted and the other was not.

    No, just saw it on YJA. I had the mini for a while, but it moved away to join a larger flock of mini Zags.

    Just for reference, I thought I would link the Rakugaki Tournament pages:

    3rd Rakugaki Tournament / September 2005 (Zagoran)

    http://www.gargamel.jp/topics/rakugaki_zagoran/index.html

    2nd Rakugaki Tournament / October 2004 (Pinwheel)

    http://gargamel.jp/rakugaki/index.html

    (Gold, silver and bronze Cumberlians and 'Rakugaki Color' Gameppas and Cumberlians were prizes... wish I could see those!)

    The first Rakugaki Tournament in September 2003 used the Gargamess. Unfortunately, any page for the contest is long gone.

    Not sure when they posted this but it is one of the saddest things I've seen on their website. At least they are still making toys but that Thrashout store was really cool. I know they closed in 2012 but I hadn't seen it officially posted till today. :(

    I was lucky enough to see it before it shut down. It was a beautiful wooden store. Eye candy for sure.

    It looks like most of the stuff he is bringing to Dcon this year is lottery only. So no micro runs this week I guess.

    Hey I paid for my VIP ticket. So that doesn't bother me. Not every person is going for the sole purpose of flipping but even if it's lottory there is still the chance it will land in a flippers hands regardless.

    I have a vip ticket as well but I just think a lotto would be more fair to everyone. last year, waiting in line, i saw families lining up to get as much as they could from them. anyway good luck this weekend!

    I think lotto is the way to go with the bigger draws.
    people get to relax and not have to scramble to line up or wait in line forever.
    and known flippers tickets go right in the trash.

    Not feeling the new mecha arms :?
    They don't quite match with the transparent body IMO. I'd like to see how they fit on a normal vinyl Zag/Mibora. They look very bulky on the pics.

    hope so! need someone to start the annual thread...
    and i wonder if the mecha limbs are the "new sculpt" that kiyoka told me about in late spring, or if there are other surprises in store for dcon &/or lucky bags.

    I think you're mistaking Gargamel with the RxH/PD/Goccodo line. Honestly, I am relieved it's lotto and not a damn foot race. Everyone gets a chance. I can concentrate on other booths.
