Never the less, this is so awesome that almost 40 of us got the Drifter. It puts a big ass smile on my face, cause I know we will all appreciate them. With this guy, FB Chipp, and the Young Ghosts on the way.....I dont think I can handle all the Squadt madness that I am about to be exposed to.

Gah! A friend from back home got one. Im happy for him, the thing is that he now might consider keeping his fr0g, which was the one he was gonna sell to me. violent2


;___; Add "gatiio's on-the-fence friend" to that list.


And yeah, Ilovefreestuff,

Tomeno did the drop like any other and some got lucky and some didn't. thats how the beast is, man. We all turned up at the same time, No secret-drop bullshit or f5ing all day for some glimpse of a toy. we all had the same opportunity; click at the time, fill the form and hope your ISP is faster than everyone else's. Its not nice to be assuming things we neither know nor can confirm.

Deal done, let's move on.

I was already out of the house for the day when I saw my e-mail this morning.

With all the crashing and confusion with the Japanese characters, I wasn't sure when or if my order went through, so I kept trying. I don't think I actually submitted a complete order til 38 minutes after. That was my first attempt after learning on CP that that top button in Japanese says "send." Anyway, I received two no-sorry e-mails last night and figured that was that. I was very surprised it turned out the way it did. I was able to get my first order request submitted by 6 minutes after, but the connection dropped before I received the confirmation page. Then at 20 minutes after, I got it submitted again and received a confirmation page, but I didn't know about the Japanese button, and I closed the window. I have no idea which attempt was successful, but I'm glad I kept trying.

Getting lucky is bittersweet though, with so many of you feeling frustrated and disappointed. We're all very lucky that Ferg and BP are stand-up guys, and it's awesome of them to do something for board members who missed out. Hopefully, more people here can score a No. 7 before all is said and done.

yeah, it was released via order form only. read the deets, man. ;D

I wonder what the next TB will be, now. like I said, I dont really collect them, but I can see how they are so sought after. specially all the cool stuff each new one brings to the platform. I'm anxious to see ferg use the tats on other squadts.

I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that they did not hold any back for themselves. All exclusives sell out through Tomenosuke rather quickly, plus you have to remember that the Japanese had an advantage with this drop with simple fact they were able to read the form. Just be glad it is not on the flip side where every drop is not coming from Japan and we are on this side of the language barrier to our advantage. Just my 2 from lack of sleep.

I was too worried about how to fill in the order form I must have missed that part of the detail... somewhere in the first 50 or 60 pages LOL But I think that sucks that the owner couldn't hold a few pieces for his regular walk-in customers to raffle away or something.

i think i couldn't have b/c the order, cuz the first 2 times i filled are all failed
it keep saying the postcode is wrong
i tried many times, anyway that is not a good order form for international buyers

meaning so someone can walk in and buy it without filling a form and waiting for a submission? now that would be unfair. Specially for those far from the store or that country for that matter.

Let's just move one, we're beating a dead horse here. I see it like this, either we buy it off second hand (ebay or a friend) or just look forward to the next release.


Also, the form was similar to others on the site, but not quite the same, for those wondering.
Im pretty sure Ferg, more than any of us, learned a lot from this drop. If there are exclusives in the future (even though he seemed to be reconsidering that) Im sure that the formula will be tweaked.

Im happy for those who scored and I believe this method was fair to everyone and all.

another way would be to run it like the TAG store; Clock hits 12 PDT and all the emails (on Gmail) get accounted for in the order they come in.

I think we are missing the point on how many possibilities this guy opens for the line. Like I said before, Tats on squadts is a great idea. Im down for some fr0gs with sailor and 'Mom' tats. chug

Wow, what an asshole.

EDIT:

Let's report this shit.

here's how;

1. Go to the right of item description and click on 'Report this Item'

2. From the Drop down menus choose.

Listing practices > Inappropriate Seller terms > Presale.
