The Takara-Tomy Mall has updated with news on the availability of the Tokyo Toy Show Masterpiece Tiger Track. Unlike past Tokyo Toy Show exclusives from Takara-Tomy, this one won’t necessarily be available at the Tokyo Toy Show, and instead will be preordered there, with the possibility of a lottery drawing if more people want to purchase Tiger Track than available toys allows. Here are the full details, with translation provided to us by Griffin-of-oz:
Due to limited quantities, it will be a reservation lottery.
Obtain reservation/entry on the 17th (Monday) and 18th June (Tuesday), from 10am each day.
Limit one reservation per person.
If there are less reservations placed than toys, everyone gets one. If there are more reservations than toys, it comes down to a random lottery.
Winners will then be contacted by the email they provided on the reservation. Toys will then be shipped out late June. Price 6,000 yen (about $64) – Cash on delivery only.
It is worth noting that a portion of Tiger Track may be held back from this drawing, given the numbers already being offered through online retailers and the fact that in-hand pictures are circulating.
