    Eye Looking For Help Buying a Toy!

    Hello anyone who still hangs out here occasionally, I am looking for your assistance to help me add a most desired toy to my collection.

    This involves entering a lottery for the right to purchase a fairly expensive toy, so if anyone is willing to enter, your help would be greatly appreciated, I am just trying to improve my chances of success with numerous entries.

    You just need to fill out the entry and if you are selected for purchase I of course will cover all associated costs, including the toy, shipping and any potential import taxes. I still have family in Calgary so it would not be required to be reshipped to Hong Kong, and I can pass on a helpers fee as well. I have no issue taking multiple pieces if there was more than one successful entry too.

    As toys have sort of become my life since I stopped driving () I am also involved in this as work too and if any of you are a bit older you may remember a fairly popular toy from the 80s called Boglins, originally made by Mattel. Well I have been working with a few people to get them going again and we have a Kickstarter going to jump start the sales and it was fully funded in the first few hours and our production is already underway, but please have a look if you are at all interested.

    Thanks for looking and Happy Halloween!

    I didn't think I knew what Boglins were, but for sure I remember now that I see what they are!

    I put my name in lottery.

    As a fellow collectibles enthusiast, I fully support your cause! Best of luck my friend

    Also - I appreciate how they’re doing this as a lottery rather than the usual bot ridden random time drop which is so frustrating. Cool looking toy by the way.

    The Boglins are neat. It reminds me of Madballs. I was part of a project to bring those back 5 years ago but the license turned to **** and we had to rebrand the project to Mondoids. I wish you the best of luck with the kick-starter.

    Thanks for the help Stefan, and yes if you are a certain age I think Boglins are pretty memorable.

    Nick, normally these lotteries are Japan only so we are left paying reseller prices, so very nice to have a chance, but who knows how good of a chance it will be. There have been some new Madball items recently, even some Madball Bearbricks (what the lottery is for) so sucks the license issues came up. The Boglins have the original creator involved so the license is secure and we are starting the tooling on the first 3 versions so it is going ahead now, just a matter of time and money

    Thanks again for the help!
