Time for a lotto!

With the end of the Heisei era expected for next April, Bandai has decided to celebrate with another Premium Bandai lotto.

They're going to have limited stock of a number of items to celebrate and 8 of them are Digimon items! These are most likely extra stock that was made in case of issues that would require replacements or simply extras they decided to hold onto for whatever reason that they've decided is time to sell off.

These items won't be gotten by any of us, but it's nice to see them back in a limited fashion.

The items are:
The 2nd wave of 20th Anniversary V-Pets for 3,780 yen each.
The 1st wave of 20th Anniversary Pendulums for 3,780 yen each.
The MetalGarurumon version of the 15th Anniversary Digivice for 9,990 yen.
The CSA Digivice tri. Memorial for 7,020 yen.
The lifesize Tailmon plush for 8,100 yen.
The lifesize Agumon plush for 8,100 yen
The lifesize Gabumon plush for 8,100 yen.
The Digital Monster Art Book Ver. 1~5 & 20th for 4,860 yen.

The lottery can be entered by people in Japan by clicking the big orange button towards the bottom of each items product page.

The lottery winners who can purchase the items will be announced on January 11th, the day after the lotto application ends.

These items are all from (roughly) the last year and a half, with a few of them being long since sold out.

I don't expect any intermediaries will want to try dealing with a lotto, but if you want to try...

You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
From Japan
Rider Proxy

The Bandai Premium store has also chosen to affiliate themselves/recommend a few potential shops to be used as intermediaries for non-Japanese buyers:
From Japan (this From Japan link shows various items that they waive commission fees for.)
Samurai Buyer

You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the link to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded in the news article for the products are exactly what you'll need to send them.

Some of the intermediaries have a full storefront and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.
