A couple of the figures pictured here don't seem to be on TOM's website. Is there a more extensive list or are they simply not up for grabs?

The pictures listed in this article don't seem to correspond with the figures on the actual page but I entered for the No Game No Life Shiro 1/7 Scale Figure w/ Free Display Case [Pre-order]. Cool contest.

Tokyo Otaku Mode is awesome. I love their shirts with original designs from their artists.

I bought this one from their site a few months ago: https://otakumode.com/shop/529ed70ea5a7265920000191/K550-T-Shirt

I'm a little confused by some things

-The figures shown here do not match those in the website
-The article says there are many figures to choose from, but the website only shows around a dozen? Is there a full list somewhere?
-I entered for the Princess of the Crystal Nendoroid, but it's in a section tagged "Offer ending soon". Does this mean the figure will no longer be eligible by the time the contest ends? If so, why even put it in the page?
-If different figures are added to the contest page, or if the one I entered for is removed, can I re-share the article asking for a different one?
-Can we make different shares asking for different figures? Would sharing the article multiple times increase our chances of winning?

You're right, TOM does have some exclusive stuff.
Unfortunately, as far as anime figures go at least, after buying a few things from them, I came to the conclusion it still was cheaper to just use places like Hobby Search and cdjapan, even with shipping included.

At least their price point isn't that much different from those two. Crunchyroll and j-list, however... If you can find whatever those two have you're interested in from another reputable retailer, then get it from that another retailer. Trust me, your wallet will thank you for that...

The main page only show a selection of best sellers/popular ones. Just choose category 'Newest' from just above the item pictures and you'll have a descending list in chronological order.

Usually, and almost inevitably for the more popular franchises and figure producers, pre-order slots have run out a good while before the actual release date. Meaning unless you put a pre-order for a figure, chances are it's not gonna be available anymore at the actual release date.
If they have these figures as prizes, I assume they have reserved the slots necessary, so there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

You're right. Same for most other retailers. Seems only BiginJapan has it up for grabs for now. Perhaps it wasn't supposed to be put on pre-order just yet? (actual release date March/April 2016).

Quote:
If a figure sells out before the end of the contest, you will be asked to select a new figure as your prize (new figures will be added).

I assume they mean pre-order slots might run out, because otherwise this doesn't make much sense. (Stronger Tsumugi, release date March/April 2016, Max Factory figma Asuna December 2015, GSC Reiden nendoroid November 2015, Wing Golden Darkness October 2015... <= none of those is likely to be available at the actual release date...)

Considering how fast figurines sell out, if they don't reserve a few as prizes it'll be a pretty poor contest.

I think it depends, really. Beetween premium CR membership and monitoring the daily discount, the Good Smile Mikasa I got from Hobby Search with EMS would have come out to about the same price after shipping without having to worry about international ship.

Your mileage will definitely vary, since all the other figures I've ordered from Hobby Search came in just fine, but the FREEing Silica I ordered from them took 6 months from initial ship to get to me, which is just kind of depressing... not really their fault, assuming it shipped when they said it did, but after that experience I am willing to pay extra for EMS or domestic origin in exchange for peace of mind.
