    Fantastic toy...I had the painted glow and the crystal version...but ended up selling them for space reasons. The original painted grey is pretty amazing...and I'd probably consider keeping that one!

    This is my Crystal version. I thought I should show a bit of a larger image of him.

    The grey is amazing too, I'm glad I kept it. Would like the others but it's a space hog!

    Wow that's great. The crystal version is amazing!
    Is the spray on the inside of the vinyl?

    I was just going to ask the same thing.... Maybe it's cellophane or tinsel? I love the delicate sprays on his tips.

    Pretty sure the spray is still on the outside, but the inside of the toy is filled with iridescent foil.

    I forgot about this guy.

    That version looks really nice. I wonder how he'd square off against a Max Toy Zanga?

    Woah! Never seen a grouping of "Crystal" figures before, they look so incredible together. Very rare for M1 to be outshined (literally!) but Marusan has done it with that style.

    Damn, Mark! That's one Gorgeous collection you have there :D

    Aside from the Crystal Grand King, the only other of that lot I'm lucky to have is the Garamon brooding in the back.

    ^^ Here in this beautiful photo of Todd's:

    As far as a clear Grand King goes, the "clear red" one's also pretty darn handsome.

    ^^ Yes Sir, a Marusan beaut.

    Even though I don't usually collect the most detailed vinyl figures, CCP for example, have ya'll seen the Inspire Grand Kings? I might have to add at least one of these blokes to the ranks eventually.

    I was asked to share detailed photos of a glow in the dark Grand King I just bought. The pictures are kind of large, and I apologize for that, but I didn't want to resize them just for posting here when I needed them this size for elsewhere. I'll include most of the pictures in a spoiler tag because of this.

    Awesome shots, Josh! That has to seriously be one of the best renditions out there of GK glowing in the dark. Beautiful picture! Ha, I think I've found a new desktop background too. Thanks for sharing, man :D

    There is a standard GID version w' no paint out there too, if anyone has any images to share or wants to add another hunt to their list ;).
