    I haven't heard anything, but to be fair to me it seems a little early, I imagine sorting through the number of entries alone for these (no small part of which I am sure are due to the speculating crowd) must be an eternal headache. I know, and fully appreciate, how waiting for lotteries can make you feel very antsy, but I give a lot of leeway to toy makers for the work I am sure this is to figure out and manage. I may not be average in that regard - and I know some folks manage a very quick turnaround notification of a day or two - but a week or two is actually even fine in my book, I am still super thrilled to get that notification if it does come in.

    Did the green minis see a release yet? If not, anyone have info on what Lenny's plan for them is?

    From past lottos he's held, the reply time seems to be between 2-3 days.

    Haven't seen any word on the green minis yet, not sure if that was supposed to be a Creature Bazaar release or not?

    Congrats to any winners out there. Gomora is a very fitting tribute. I hope that Lenny continues to go to the vintage Bullmark/Marusan well for the future releases as well. And, while the ball and vintage style packing on past releases were great (I am very interested to see what this one comes in) the tower is a stellar add on, and I am actually glad it is not the standard red (which would not have worked so well anyways with this release).

    Unfortunate to see one of the new 'Gomora' releases turned around so quickly at Mandarake. Not unpredicted, just unfortunate. It'll be sold though I am sure, and continue to drive these as the new Bemon toys. :roll: I'll stick to taking my fair odds in the lotteries.

    Yeah that’s a sad state of affairs. I was lucky in the last lottery and should hopefully get mine soon (just need to wait on the customs fee letter so I can pay the charges). I just don’t get putting in for a lottery just to flip it a few days after receiving it.

    Easy. ¥¥¥

    Sold out now anyways, as expected. I appreciate the folks who support this hobby, and the artists, through vigilance, community, sharing, and patience - rather than just throwing money at it to chase self-centred props or gain virtual likes.

    I think this is my favorite one yet, and the tower is a nice touch. I do want that deadstock gun though!

    I love the tower. Got mine on Wednesday and the toy impresses even more in hand than I expected. Super fun.

    Also just saw that I scored one of the creature bazaar mini godesu! Anyone else have any luck?

    That's it. Soon as this thing is over, I am coming up there on the first train. Have drams and toys ready.

    For the folks waiting for an invoice, Lenny takes just a few days to respond with invoice details and ships super quick. I’ve been very happy with my experience buying toys from Spectrum.

    To your point @Michael Beverage this was my 3rd or 4th entry to win so those are pretty fair odds and when you win you win a literal goodie bag that is shipped pretty quick given the circumstances.

    And even then, EMS is janky as all getup now. I got the v4 Godesu and it shipped after something from Tokyo Jesus that hasn't moved at all.

    He ships quick, for sure. That said I think it comes down to the load on different post offices and routes plus shifting availability of planes. Had a box from Mandarake moving through the postal system in Japan for two weeks just recently. Very grateful to still have toys in these times, delay or no.

    Is the new green minigodesu the same as the creature bizarre one or is it different?

    I wasn’t sure from the photos.

    @Bob It’s the same! There was an initial wave offered for Creature Bazaar ticket holders, and then the open entry lotto, but they’re the same paints.
