    The non textured part of the stomach on the Tetran makes a lot more sense now. I know it was bothering some people when the sculpt was first released.

    CONGRATS! I can't get over how gorgeous these are, especially the mini. Between this show and the Thrashout I'm really crossing my fingers for some Deathra love in the lucky bags this year.

    Yeah those standard Deathras are really nice, and will look good with the old mini from 2006 SDCC. Probably could have even been a general release versus an event exclusive, but I appreciate that AA opened up sales for overseas buyers.

    I was able to score the painted and the blank but I didn’t opt in for the mini. Kinda wishing that I did now. My first Deathra and I’m super pleased!

    I had no idea that AA was open for international buyers; I thought it was an in-person event and didn't enter. Those deathras are fantastic! If anybody has second thoughts on theirs, talk to me first :)

    I was somewhat surprised to get all 3...but I also suspect that a lot of folks who don't follow AA closely on Instagram might've not even been tuned into their offerings.

    It my decrease my future chances, but I'll try to share the love/knowledge here on SB next time.

    I scored the painted Deathra from AA. It was the only one of the three that I entered for. Seems like quite a few of us were lucky.

    I'm really hoping for some Deathra action in this year's lucky bags. I guess we'll find out in a month or so..

    Good to hear some boardies scored also! Definitely keep your eyes on Angel Abby as they seem to be the main source of Gargamel releases over the past few years aside from Chanmen and Mitari. The mini deathra matches their past releases of a standard zag, mini zag, and doranekon. They also released the yellow doranekon, the pocket buta spaceman, and mitari angels. There may be more I'm forgetting or missed.
    This was a confusing drop. I had emailed them to ask about international sales and they responded quickly with the date the lottery would open up.

    So I’m wondering, was the Deathra preorder a lotto or more of an open preorder? Did anyone put in for any of the three figures and not get them?

    It was presented as a lottery but seems like folk who went in got what they asked for. Not seen anyone post that they hadn’t scored.

    I actually entered for at least 3 additional items and only got the Gargamel so maybe it was just a much higher release number? I'm surprised that the painted standard deathra was not sold out. I would suggest that anyone who is interested should email them just to see if there are leftovers. Couldn't hurt and they seem to be great at responding.

    Holy crap, that’s so astronomically cheap compared to a custom… I really need to keep my eye on things in the future.

    Just FYI, AA has not invoiced for these yet (said early Feb), so no one overseas has them or has paid for them.
