    Oops my bad! :D  The info is as above your post. 1388RMB for 1 x white crab on signup. Next year you will be sent 8 x mass retail molds, 4 x exclusives (one each month). The card is available for purchase on 52toys' TMALL store in Taobao.

    Its a general purpose mech with diecast outer panels.

    @Weirdobeardo - welcome to the boards :) 

    Bummer, they don't have the emperor penguins just the clear blue penguins. Does anyone have a better way to reach out to Baba rather than ebay? I'm just curious if they plan to get some of the emperor penguins or are already sold out or what.

    I didn't even realize the black penguins were different than the originals until you mentioned them, then I saw the yellow on their faces.

    Thanks for that, I found it via Twitter the other day and ordered, but appreciate the reply. Only missing 4 releases now, slowly filling those gaps.

    I should have guessed, oh well. Its just becoming too difficult and expensive to get even general releases from lines I collect, so after DP1, dragon, Jetsam & Dev-Landbreaker, I’m out.

    https://boards.4channel.org/toy/thread/8483517#p8521350

    For those who don’t want to visit 4chan:

    Remaining releases in 2020
    >Regular
    Jetsam
    Jawbreaker
    Chinese Dragon
    Deep One

    >Limited/Exclusives
    Overkill
    Black Chinese Dragon
    GiD Predator

    VIP membership is tied with a WeChat mini-app called "Beast Box Planet". Members will receive 2021's new releases around 1~2 weeks before their release. Regular releases will prioritize new molds over repaints, limited releases will have repaints (of course). Limited releases will only consist of online exclusives (those you have to camp Tmall for), so it excludes offline convention exclusives, shop exclusives etc.

    They have about 30~50 BB+MB products planned for 2021 (regular+exclusives+limited+etc.). About 12~14 individually-numbered BBs and 6 for MBs.

    Kind of reminds me of a Portal Turret in a way.

    Any non-China buyers have success with paying the deposit for preorders on TMall? Before I was able to purchase the whole thing outright but recently they changed to the new deposit system, I don't have my 6 digit pin for Alipay and trying with their customer service gets me nowhere. Would hate to miss out on preorder bonuses and exclusives because of the new system even though I've been buying these things from the site for years now

    Welcome to the forum! The problem for us is that we peg a non China card to our Alipay. With no way of verifying our accounts, we aren’t allowed to pay for preorders (security of fake buyers), top up funds or use the account outside of Taobao. A part time Chinese girlfriend in your city could solve all issues perhaps? :lol

    This just sounds like an added expense. Might as well just move to Australia and import everything. :D

    Don't know if this has been mentioned, but this line seems perfect for a puzzle box/Pinhead.
