If you get a “Random Drawing” ticket, you have been entered in the drawing to purchase that item on the specified day. Check at the Bandai booth #3535 on the big screens, any time after 10:00 AM on the designated date to see if your number is drawn for you to purchase on that day only!
Be sure to purchase your product by 5:00 PM on the same day you receive the ticket!! Tickets are valid same day only.
