    Honestly fine with this change. Will limit the amount of sales threads popping up like mushrooms after a spring shower. Hopefully more people will be happy with what they get / it'll facilitate more trades.

    Same exact thoughts. People were starting to treat the standards like jelly beans.

    Hi first time lucky bagger here and I would say I don't mind this breakdown. While more toys is always better than fewer I think it's kinda nice they're packing just the one standard size and it's painted. Sort of "you get what you get" and you won't be left wishing your blank was the one that had the paint.

    TBH I think the secondary market is kinda flooded with standard blanks, but I do feel bad for those that like to collect them... they're totally left out this time around

    So DIY like the old days with paper guts, more winning items and Japanese bags that don't duplicate contents?
    Did Google translate this correctly?

    Looks like inserting the guts into the small Zag may require some care and patience. I don't get the 'cut the fitting part' comment by Keiichi. Is he saying to cutoff the 'fastener' at the neck?

    Maybe he’s just saying that we COULD, but I know I’d rather just go through the trouble of trying to make it work keeping the fittings on. I LOVE that the guts are basically its own figure.

    "This year we have included more winning prizes than usual, so Please stay tuned!"

    This alone is shattering my plans to buy a single bag this year.

    Some exciting changes this year! Hopefully with bags being about $150 each, this price will be echoed with US retailers!
    looking forward to some guts

    The new price tag is very appealing and I love that there isn't going to be an unpainted standard. I'm not sold on the guts guys, the proportions look wonky to me but I'm excited to have them in hand to make a final judgement.
    It's the most wonderful time of the year!
