    That's the first photo I've seen of all three of those guys next to each other. I didn't realize how large the Gomora-like guy was!

    Loved that Chinasaurus since I was a little kid!
    Always wanted to make a more vintage looking version.

    Vintage Vinyl Club did a gallery show of some of his work from different contributing artist recently. I absolutely love all the colors in the display case!

    The demolished buildings set-up is great, what a show! That cut away Ettin is no joke, really great work, he's developed so much coolness since the beginning not long ago!

    Did anyone else enter the lottery for the brown-and-cream colorway of Goliathon?

    The drawing was supposed to take place two days ago (Japan time), and though I got Medicom's "entry received" email weeks ago when I entered, I haven't heard anything since the drawing.

    Even if I didn't win, Medicom / Planet-X would let me know... right?

    There's a whole bunch of these on auction now, so it looks like some people, at least, got the good word. (Several are from renegades with super-low feedback, so those may be cases where they're *hoping* they'll get Goliathons to flip... but at least a couple are from reliable sellers.)

    Any info from others who've entered these lotteries would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    I won a purple gosaura, from planetx.
    It was pretty simple. I think I was notified in 4-5 days.

    Thanks! If that's their typical turnaround time, looks like I still have a chance of some good news. (No idea how many they produced, or how many people enter these things.)

    I'm disappointed with the way this turned out. I heard nothing from the Medicom email address handling the lottery entries, even after eight days from the lottery. I finally emailed back, asking whether my name had been drawn, and received a reply saying that because it wasn't drawn, my order was automatically cancelled. Apparently, collectors submitting unselected entries were not contacted.

    Maintaining an email list is pretty simple, and it would hardly take more than a few minutes to use one to send a bcc mass message. I understand how lotteries work, but it's not appropriate to notify only the winners. So if anyone else wants to try their luck on these figures... no news is not good news.

    I'd say 95% of the lotteries I've ever entered (and its been a lot) don't let you know when you haven't won. You just find out from others that they've won. Its been like that for years. Good luck trying to get that to change. Sorry you lost though!

    Like Brickbat said, the vast majority of toy makers do not send an email out unless you win.

    The point here is to let people know not to wait on an email if they want a lottery figure and haven’t heard anything. I’m glad I didn’t. Found the Goliathon on auction for a little more than the list price, and a much better deal than most flippers offer.

    I’ve been on a lot of search committees, and the issue here is the same. Professional courtesy means taking a few minutes to notify candidates who didn’t make the short list... so they don’t pass on new opportunities, thinking they may still have one with you.

    “Character is how you treat people who can do nothing for you.”

    ‘Nuff said.

    I’ve only been entering lottos for about five years, but the formula has always been the same: if you didn’t get an e - mail, you didn’t win. At the very least, artist could post “e - mails went out to winners”, which they usually do. That’s how you know you didn’t make the cut.

    Some of these artists receive hundreds, if not thousands of entries. To expect them to take even more time out of their day than they already do creating what we collect, to respond back to every single entry that didn’t win, because you want “professional courtesy”, is a bit inconsiderate, not to mention an unrealistic expectation.

    You were trying to buy a plastic dinosaur not interviewing for a job. Nobody owes you anything and how upset you are about this is laughable. Relax, you'll enjoy the hobby more.

    Not true. Anyone who knows how to use a spreadsheet can send a bulk email within a couple of minutes.

    So have a good laugh, Prince.

    Everything we do, large or small, matters.

    What we do owe each other is treating one another like human beings.

    And actually, the hobby is most fun when it’s meeting and swapping stories, photos and figures in person. I’ll look forward to that.
