Not sure how I feel with my main and alt account both being eligible for the deal toy...

We all need to chip in to make a King Kong deal toy out of solid gold in appreciation of Ben Matan Biran, who has been gracing us with his wisdom the past few days

This seems like those plaques or awards YouTube sends to its creator when they get like a billion views or a billion followers. Nice gesture Andy and team. Thanks for offering

Wait for the emails about hot single analysts in your area!

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes.

What sensitive info could possibly be kept by WSO? Even credit card data is pretty useless. The transactions get denied or revered basically. Bank account info, also the banks don't let people rob them. Basically not much to fear but fear itself

First of all, thank you for doing this.

Also, a heads up that EU regulations are changing after July 1st. International shipments are subject to different customs and tax regulations than before. More information linked below. It would be very helpful if KingKong's in the EU would receive their silver banana before July 1st 2021 to avoid complications or even charges.
I don't know the exact details about this new set of rules though, but the last thing we want is DHL or another logistics firm to add an expensive handling fee.………

thanks for the heads up, ultimately it's up to the company that creates/ships them, but we'll do the best we can to get them the mailing addresses quickly

The cut-off date is the last day of June 2021, customs in the EU would need to inspect the package before that day or the process of collecting VAT will be relayed to the courier company. Each courier in the EU nation has different fees i.e. for DHL/DP, Belgium Post, NL Post, etc

What if we're close and get there by the deadline? Asking for a friend...

when I check the list of responses after the deadline and you have 1,000 bananas you're in. Though please don't spam the forums just for the banana points.

If you have 1,000 banana points and filled out the form you will receive one (only exception is I believe that the company won't be able to ship them to Russia).

Then we'll send an email to all recipients to let them know we're shipping them out.

Figured I'd bump this thread. Has anyone gotten their toy yet or a confirmation that they've been shipped?

I’m a fun guy. Obviously I love the game of basketball. I mean there’s more questions you have to ask me in order for me to tell you about myself. I'm not just gonna give you a whole spill... I mean, I don't even know where you're sitting at

No, not yet. I was thinking about it because I put down an address I'm not usually at yet so was wondering if someone had swiped it or not.

I think we supposed to get emails once the toys are being sent, but also haven't heard anything from the Chief Monkey Officer

Jul 21, 2021 - 3:18pm

I got this email two days ago:


Quick update here to let you know that there was a delay with the supplier but now the deal toys are being created and should ship by mid-August. I will email again when they start the shipments.

Please reply back asap if you want to update your mailing address.

FYI - I haven't received an update on mine either.

Hi AndyLouis, is there an update on them shipping soon? I have my forwarding address just in case, but I'm pretty sure I put in the correct address I'm using anyway, didn't want to miss this round!
