man this sucks, a chance like this is never again and beleive it or not i would have bought every slot just to win it but when i think about it i'm lacking space and not to mention most of the zoids pheno has it would be not interested to me, already have and some are just to big and will take space thats why i never entered. Their is one thing i can say i would love to have the Iron Kong yeti, PK and the other one that comes with the NAR weapons, oh yeah ptero rayse, desert liger, berzerk fury's CP-27, gojulas oger, mariner, and proto giga. wow thats a lot also if space left i would like to get mirage liger and the sheild liger DSJ, yeah i would pay for them.
yeah thats the problem if i was to have them all at my home there would be space to store the ones that i don't want, which is like what are we talking 200 or more zoids that i don't want and will try to sell, probably the LTDs will go quick and besides i still live with my parents and Dad is the type that will ignore it and then all of a sudden go down on u hard, he might even thow away the extras like how he took some three kittens i found about a week ago and the day before he found out about it and he just grabbed them and threw them to the other neighbors yard crazy isn't it. Wait am i still on zoids subject or not.
I know I can't really stop anyone from doing this but if the person who wins sells off most of the collection for profit I am going to be extremely pissed off. That totally negates the entire purpose of this raffle. It's not right for someone to spend $25 on a raffle ticket and then turn around and make a bunch of money by selling the Zoids, that would be the same as if I just gave you money and I'm certainly not giving away money.
I would hope that whoever wins would be generous enough to donate whichever ones they didn't want to other forum Members, as a show of friendship, and appreciation for a collection that should have more meaning than a money making venture.
I would hope that nobody would enter this raffle just to make a profit off of Pheno's hard gotten collection. Please don't buy a slot if all you want to do is put 'em up on Ebay...leave it for the people that really want these.

Anyone need someone to team up with? I have most of Pheno's collection already. The only thing I am really interested in is some of the limiteds, The art statues, a few neo blox I don't have, the SRDX and some other stuff. I'd give most of the models to the person (or people) I team up with.
Lemme know if anyone is interested.

Well, I don't know if I have a chance to win, but if yes, there is only the Hasbro Sissy interesting me, so I will let the rest for another winner. It could be a good idea to split the lot between several winners (even if it could be a little difficult to bear).
After thinking about this for the last two days I have decided to close to raffle due to a lack of interest. Nearly 3 weeks into the contest only 53 slots have been purchased and I just don’t feel that I’ll be able to fill up the remaining 97 slots in the next week and a half. I will refund everyone’s money immediately and list the Zoids for sale on eBay over the next week. For some of you this may come as bad news as you were hoping at a chance to get the entire collection but from what I’ve been reading on the forum I think most people will probably be happy about this decision.
As a consolation to all who entered the raffle I will pick one number at random and send you my ZoidFans LTD Chrome Shadow Fox. Your money will still be refunded so you get a cool LTD Zoid for free! I hope everyone’s okay with this decision, the raffle seemed like a great idea at first but as time went on I think we all began to realize it would have been better to put them on eBay. Oh well, we learn from our mistakes and we move on.
