    I'm trying to following the bouncing ball here but it seems to be one of those 25c Hi-Bounce crazy balls.. how can a pre-order be anything but a straight-forward pre-order? I'm hulking up here just thinking about how ridiculous a 'pre-order lottery' is... the rage could also be due to the fact I've come into work this morning with half a week's work off-loaded onto my desk to be done by the end of the day. Next thing we know MVH will be running 'pre-order shop-drop instagram re-post lottery 2nd pre-order' sales out of that circus tent of his..

    I mean, better to pay $2K now, than $5K from the flippers right?

    This has always been zollmens selling method and many others. It simply means they are making a limited amount, say 50 pieces, they will go to lotto if they receive more than 50 entries.

    From my experience, many Japanese "lotteries" appear to be first come, first served, Zollmen being one of the companies that very much furthered my belief. At 2k for a "toy" a "pre-order lottery" might also be used to gauge interest and produce accordingly, in order to not end up sitting on a heap of Jumbo Barons that nobody but the Asian nouveau riche can afford... Did anyone here actually enter this..?? :lol:

    I don't get why people are getting all bent outta shape about this particular entry. (Especially as this is the DB thread, though that is neither here nor there). This is no different than so many other makers, and as has been stated here, is completely status quo for Zollmen. Like so many of the more 'exclusive' brands, these are in demand toys. People don't even blink with other makers, and 'art toys.' The difference here is that you are getting one heck of a hunk of vinyl. I mean, as with everything, if the price isn't for you then you don't enter, it isn't exactly rocket science. Those who can and want to, who are other people to say they shouldn't? At least this is money going directly to the sale, rather than some shifty after-market practice. Don't get me wrong, this is pricey as anything [and far beyond my game] but just because these aren't being released through some uber-exclusive event or auction, doesn't mean that they should be painted with a different brush.

    And, if you take nothing else away from this post, that is one amazing toy.

    Calling it a 'lottery' sounds like a hype tactic to encourage the 'speculators'.

    If dude gets 100 pre-orders for a $2k toy he's a dumbass if he makes any less!

    Unfortunately he won't be getting any of my cash . . . the hookers and heroin took priority!

    Remember when toys were cheaper than hookers and heroin? Those were the good ol days. It’s nice to see OMO back up and running, but it’s a shame I’m more than likely priced out of future releases.

    Hopefully the future releases under two feet tall won't cost nearly as much, but I am a little worried about keeping up after seeing this one.

    Good luck to all who entered though :) that's more than twice the usual amount of Mad Baron to dive off your shelf one day, so you'll need it!

    Anybody who says "Bitchhhh, can you please get off my dick already" has probably been a guest on Jerry before... is this you Rich?

    Love is in the air, everywhere I look around. Love is in the air, every sight and every sound. And I don't know if I'm being foolish. Don't know if I'm being wise. But it's something that I must believe in. And it's there when I look in your eyes.

    I realise name-calling's not big OR clever, but that's gotta be todays 'Word of the Day'! :thumbsup:

    Ok i think that's about enough - you've done a great job yet again living upto you're reputation outside of the hyped circle you live in.

    This is the Zollmen thread - so if you want to talk about your issues for real, send me a DM. Or you can continue looking like a true bitchhh (to use your favourite word) by acting tough in these replies.. we're all pretty sick of your shit. Go hang out in that tent of yours pal!

    You keep bringing me up, talking shit yet somehow I’m living up to a reputation ? Fuck off ...

    I don’t need to dm you, I’ll just say it out here. Until the mods realize, yet AGAIN , it was you that insulted me first AGAIN.

    Your the one who keeps bring me up, just stop with your obsession with me and always trying to find a way to mention me in some weird way. It’s not rocket science. I’m not acting tough, nothing I ever say is violent. Judging by the thread you quoted me in, it’s you most can’t stand and I quote “ In the past few years you’ve officially cemented your position as the most annoying asshat on Sb. You’ve had some worthy adversaries, it wasn’t easy given the medium, so congratulations you piece of shit “

    So .....

    Glenn,
    You did a great job with soft vinyl mayhem and you’ve done some nice pins and shirts. Focus your creative energy elsewhere and keep making cool things. The repeated trolling of Rich is whack and I really can’t understand why you behave this way towards him. Let the dude participate and post without being an asshole to him.

    Fair point @analog101 - it's pretty much two dickheads butting heads so I see how it comes across.

    So I'm just going to block Rich from this point to avoid any more shit-flinging. After all I have no interest in his toys or him as a person, besides winding him up because I know he's paranoid as fuck.
