    Killer thread idea! I'm gonna break it down by my hopes for some of the companies:

    GT - New flagship shape to take the place of the E1. Finally release their Europe edit.
    KUSA - Make Daunye pro. Maybe Mags as well?
    Krom - Get one of the plethora of rad women slayers on the team.
    Sweets - Would love to see them add some players to the team, preferable a woman as well. Make a more exciting core line of damas (think radars or something) but in the boost shape.
    NJK - quit kendama and delete their IG account.

    They still haven't dropped the Natty Slaydawgs that people have been asking for since 2018.

    ..Also since we’re seeing a rise in Jumbo/xxl/Kaiju kendamas released, I know a few would be interested/hopeful in seeing some Bigger than Jumbo sized Pills released for 2020..!

    More edits.

    I hope to high heaven that the Philippine community can grow further next year. Also, hope we could meet more international players next year. We've met with Jon from Singapore, Kevin from San Jose, California, and Zoomadanke from Japan (among others); it would be a delight to jam with pros from Europe and the US.
