    I've heard a rumor that Kirby may be carrying some Dreamrocket in the future.

    The more the merrier. :D Yeah, it seems like the Dream Rocket items were well-received at Toy Karma.

    Wait . . .
    There are only 7 pink and green penguins?
    Seriously?

    I suppose I should have bought the pink back when it was for sale on the board, instead of stupidly waiting until I have the money . . .

    The list grows... I forgot about the Dream Rocket collabs with Kaijuuken and Nakayoshi.

    Massive update, and the list is current, including some of the 8 one-off pieces sold at Superfestival 46.

    Since search function is broken, this will be stickied on my profile for the time being.

    Thanks for bringing it back!

    Dream Rocket makes some fantastic stuff---need a big cabinet to hold it, but fantastic just the same...

    Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't the Inbas Seijin releases technically Kaijuken's? Also, are all of them collabs with DR?

    Re: [The List] Dream Rocket (updated 5/7/08)

    That is an excellent question. Well, as you probably know, the first release was sold with a Dream Rocket header. All other releases, to my knowledge, were sold with Kaijuuken headers. K-T still lists some of the later versions as Dream Rocket collaborations (but this may just be a listing error).

    I've just kept listing the later releases for reference purposes. Honestly, I don't know the answer.

    I've seen photos of the first release with the Dream Rocket header, but mine came with the Kaijuken header. Exact same release ... same colors (with the orange highlights) and the cool orange mini-Tigris. No biggie. It's a brilliant sculpt. I've got it on a shelf with some DR figures and it fits right in. I'd love to see more collabs between those two companies. They both have high standards.

    There's also a new Gabari sold at the most recent SF, someone posted that it was an edition of less than ten. Blue-green vinyl with gold, silver, metallic pink, etc. Never seen or heard of the unpaint-grey Gabari, and I'm looking forward to seeing all the pics!

    Doh! Thanks... can't believe I forgot that one. The grey unpainted Gabari may have been NFS- it was exhibited at Toy Karma last year.

    great list. I think I've only seen half of these.

    I love dream rocket. The sculpts are fantastic and the paint apps are technically amazing. Everyone should have at least one.
