What's the usual clip for UCS releases? Is it one per year or so?

Strongman, Flash Gordon-guy, and Angry Dwarf are the winners here. Rocket Man is kind of funny.

The back is kind of fugly, but I had to get it to continue my theme of Cars and their mini versions (VW Camper, Mini Cooper)

Online lottery! Is this the first time LEGO has done this for a convention?
I know Funko has been going this way lately, I hope both companies do it for SDCC!
Would love knowing in advance instead of waiting in line for hours for a chance.
