    @xSuicide Squadx - I also enjoyed looking at this one. Perfect dark grimy colors on that red vinyl with those glowing eyes. It's a shame that it looks like one of the owners knocked it around a bit -- paint chip on the nose, lip, and forehead. Better condition might have only put the ending price even higher though. Congrats to whomever bagged this bad boy.

    Yes, both of these things so much. What an incredible and beautiful example.I don't have any expectations of owning a Bemon Kougai, but I sure would love to all the same. And this sort is nearly a dream version for me, sample or otherwise (even if it was 10,000 piece production). Just love those colours. The vintage IKB vibe is all over it, and executed with such precision abandon. It takes expert painting skills like this, Yuji, etc., to make it look so random and easy. Wow. And, I guess from my point of view and what I have seen even the 'normal' releases selling for, does this not seem to be an incredible bargain at that price? Damn, I would've adopted him easily at that if I could. Thank you so much for sharing, Robert. Ah, at least I'll have those pics to drool over and keep inspiring those ambitious dreams....

    @deafmetal I’m just a massive sucker for the Bullmark Minya colors on a lot of toys. Never thought I’d see it on a Kougai! I did notice the chips and such, but when it’s older figures, especially one of this griminess, I tend to find it charming. Adds that “it was played with” feel to it.

    @ultrakaiju I would have to say it’s something of a dream version for me, as well! And I also agree, that, even for a sample version, while $1K is absolutely nothing to sneeze at(especially during these times) it didn’t go for as high as I thought! With the IKB feel and aesthetic it actually looks like it existed in kids’ homes and imaginations during the Hedoro’s 70’s peak!

    Pay to play and say the name. The only thing I can appreciate about Honda’s aftermarket prices are the *actual* scarcity of his toys. And I very much still appreciate the lore behind his name and the mystique of his person.

    Just waiting to see how much the glow head pulls if they keep appearing like that


    It’s like running into that legendary pokemon and being completely unprepared for it. Love it
