Last week we asked our ‘Shop-savvy readers to show us who could play Detective Pikachu in the upcoming live-action film. It all came down to a coin-toss.

I couldn’t decide between Hans Maulworf’s excellent Magnum P.I.K.A.C.H.U. entry and MrDeadScott’s equally amazing Chu Detective.

And so I flipped a coin. Magnum won. Then I flipped again, as I’d used Magnum in a tweet earlier in the week and wanted to give Chu Detective a fair shake. Magnum won again. I am a slave to chance.

Grats to both, the very-nearly winner and the definitely winner. Scroll down for the folks who also won, but not at coin-toss level.
