    yes, thats total weaksauce. 300+ and + 10.00 shipping too.

    too bad these people cant be flogged for their actions.

    im sure there were dozens at the con who didnt get one and wanted one, that are loyal pus fans.

    seriously im almost scared to buy certain things because the real pushead collectors are so passionate. in a sense i feel undeserving of pushead toys because im so new to the japan vinyl toys, and i consider myself a real collector. to me that means not buying certain things so the people who have a collection based on the toy will get one. unfortunately thats not the case but thats how i feel.

    i only have the pushead toys because of the prices. the red grog was a mass run size and they were everywhere online at cost. the fc pirate came with no bag or header card and was a good price. the damedron was 55 but it looks great with black vinyl and red toned paint drips. the wing is super damaged as i said elsewhere. i really do feel bad for the pushead collectors who wanted this toy and wont end up with one.

    It's easier to snag (most) Pushead now then afew years back. I am amazed at some pieces that have shown up on the BST for great prices and just sat there.

    And as for the NYCC Siamese, I guess I snoozed and losed.

    Thanks for the great pics Mark. The colors are so much brighter than the pics on the Secretbase site. I really like the random marbling on these, it makes for some nice surprises. Some parts are very subtle, where others are a nice bold contrast. I can't wait to see some of the other actual colors and details.

    Sounds like a good handful of us got them on the board, congrats to everyone who did. I'd love to see pics of what everyone scored when you all get them.

    It almost sounds like more were available via the internet than in the shop?

    Yeah but consider what 2 Skull Captains would cost and subtract the bottom part. The bottom was like 1 piece right? So it's really just 1/3ish (not just amount of parts but size) of the whole? So now you're getting 2 2/3 figures combined so I can see the price jump overall.

    I'm good at toy math. I'm not good at any other kind of math.

    wow, maybe its just late and my brain isn't working properly, but this doesn't seem to add up.. how does this figure equal more than 2 figures? maybe you mean 1 and 2/3, but even then, if you subtract the legs from two figures, using your numbers it would be more like 1 1/3, no?

    OK I suck at toy math. :lol:

    It's like two 2/3's figures is what I'm trying to say. So yeah, 1 1/3 total would be correct. I didn't mean "2 2/3" I meant (2/3) x 2. I just didn't say it very well.

    As a female.. I think it's odd that you would compare flipping to rape. :? A bit extreme in my opinion.


    anyway..rad sculpt. I'm hoping we'll see more.

    I had no idea you were a female.
    Not for anything, just saying.


    It's true that Pus stuff is much easier to get these days. i've been tempted to pick stuff up just because they were so cheap or I felt sorry for them sitting there.
    A couple years ago, that blood pirate, Its a Girl or that GID skullwing would have vanished before you click on the sales thread.
    Kids today... don't know what's good for them.

    bryce is saying this to headsarereal because headsarereal is a female.

    Oh ok, that makes more sense.
    I didn't know that headsarereal was a female either, but that doesn't phase me at all.

    Just got mine today. SB shipped so quick. The color is amazing on these, but so hard to capture. Here's a few shots, more and slightly bigger on my flickr.
    I really like how the faces on mine turned out with pink/purple eyes and 1 with pink across the nose/teeth and the other almost mirroring it with grey. I'd really like to see pictures of all of them so please post when you get yours.
