    What is this guy's name? From what show? Who made the toy?

    Oh man, I should know this. I found a really slick vintage figure on ebay but I didn't have enough cash at the time and it sold. Can't find it in my bookmarks, sorry man.

    Ah, thanks a lot, man. I must've seen the vintage midsize, 'cause it looked a bit different than these.

    That is the large (full size) figure. The mini Doruge is shown in the set photo above. These are fantastic figures, the most creative and bizarre monsters in my mind, but the Barom-1 villains are notoriously expensive unfortunately.

    Thanks for the information Ultrakaiju, I had never seen the original version only Rainbow Reissue blue and GID version.
    But this is stunning !
    I imagine what it must cost! :o

    I just found that mini vintage doruge but it's up for 200k yen!!!!! Do these actually go for that or is it possible to find them cheaper. I got the blue, black and GID rainbow versions, the vintage bandai figures would be a grail for me.

    This is a standard size, not a mini.
    And yes, they are that kind expensive. And be prepared to spend a lot of money too on the others, especially if you want them complete (with boots).

    The midsize popy are also usually pretty expensive, unless they're with defects/broken or paint worn

    You may want to check the Super7 issue on Barom-1 if you want to throw yourself in those !
    Great pics and information on the series. It was released when the first Rainbow came out, so you have little information on those, but it is great for the vintage pieces.
