    According to his post on Instagram, Dennis sent out invoices for the international winners. Check those spam folders! Hopefully we get some winners! I did not, which is a bummer… but then Dennis followed it up with a picture of the T-Rex in Hawaii style, which immediately made me feel hopeful for the next one!

    Yay! Got lucky. :D Fantastic figure. Love the retro-style look of the rex and the simplistic traditional painting on it. Thanks, Dennis!

    Good luck to those who are going after the second Hawaii color release if you missed out on the first.

    Amazing news @chimply.kaiju !! :D I am thrilled for you, and of course happy when I see such a great toy ending up in someone's hands that I just know it will bring joy to and who is going to really appreciate it.

    Congrats, Chimply. But now you need all those Marusan dinos to go with it!

    Congratulations to all the lucky people! I fell asleep and forgot the next day to reply, amid some work hurricanes. I AM very excited to see the Hawaiian version. Crossing my fingers for that one, he's a pedigree!

    Also, haven’t received mine or tracking (and nothing came up on my informed delivery). I assumed these guys were shipping in waves.

    I haven’t heard any update on mine as well. It felt like there was a second wave to ship out but it’s been a minute now?

    Still waiting on mine also. Past wins I have never received tracking. Mail has been slow for me not just for international packages.

    Heard that real life shenanigans may be getting in the way of the fun stuff with Mr Shirahama.

    I'm sure that normal service will be resumed in due course!

    I just got a notice from UPS (not USPS) that mine will be here on June 28, I'm in central Texas. It's shipping via Yamato Transport in Japan to UPS here in the states.
    I only received the notice from UPS because I'm signed up for UPS My Choice, it's a service similar to USPS Informed Delivery where you get notified of shipments en route.

    Same as above - I just received notification via UPS that mine should arrive in Minnesota on Monday (6/27).

    Dennis always delivers, and it’s always worth the wait.
