    New addition to the Hukkokudo gang (with a couple more on their way next week..)

    I was surprised when I saw this version of Smogun.. never seen it before. Possibly one of the old blog releases?

    Also, as far as hawaiian paints releases go - did they only release the Standing Hedoran and Wrinkle Monster with that classic paint?

    Among my favorite versions, not an easy version to land so congrats!

    There are 2 spray versions of this blue Smogon I think PK might have posted a pic ages ago that has a bunch of ones he owns including this guy.

    I have personally never seen any other Hawaiian tributes but do not entirely rule out some other paint samples may have been done.

    Have you seen the rare OG alternate spray green Hedoran? Damn do I want that doll and I hope it's not just a sample.

    @kichigai You and both covet that Hedoran, my friend. Sadly, a still bagged and headered one just left Mandarake just a few days ago. Luckily, Glenn here turned me into better ways to search. So I'll be keeping up on it much more!

    There's also a Smogon that sold on Mandarake that's grey with blue sprays. Never seen it before, but now it's a Smogon "grail" for me. Wow!!!

    Holy Guacamole Robert, that Grey Smogon is wonderful. Well knowing there are some more of the green Hedoran crawling around, perhaps I should grab the alt. red an orange while I can.

    Does anyone recall where the '55 Blue' Smogon came from? I've only seen the dark blue version with brown spray up until now.

    The grey Smogon looks very familiar. I think it was an event exclusive sold toward the end of Hukko's run, but can't recall which one.

    Crazy - I just figured that one was a regular release. I have the pocket Gargamel Hedoran with the same colour scheme - picked up the green because I wanted to pair them up. Been a good week for Hukkokudo fans!

    Just to be clear, when I said rare it was in reference to the 1970's doll in that color. There are quite a few old IKB variations with Hedoran.

    I saved a bunch of pics of IKB dolls over the past decade and it seems the flying Hedoran had the most variations or at least those seem more common than it's brothers.

    So very glad that the Hukkokudo was a production species and not a paint sample.

    This is a nice thread, no fights or goofy stuff going on, thanks Steve for adding this thread and to all involved thus far.

    So genuinely happy to see this thread - but especially these superb toys - get some love. :) And great to see the discussion on the different versions being fostered.

    I don't know where all these 'hidden' Smoguns are coming from, but man, hard to have missed out on some of these.

    @ultrakaiju They've been popping up in droves on Mandarake. And while pollution monsters of all sorts of variet hold a special place for me, Hukkokudo has a great assortment of monsters across the board.

    Genuinely jealous of that's Hedorah 2, Glenn!!!

    Gorgeous one Glenn, congratulations on a really lovely nab. I have/had one of those fellas I bought from years back too, but honestly it was one of those toys that has been waylaid in my travels.

    Put a max bid on this just before I went to bed this morning, and woke up to the heartbreaking realization that I'd lost it by $3. :cry: Gorgeous, gorgeous paints.

    Very nice shots, Robert. That is a great (microprinted?) building too. Makes me think someone here with access to a prototyper should start offering landscape items for all of our toys!

    I confirmed there are 2 unique sprays of the alternate green spray colors of Hedoran 1GO.

    One has a thick and wide spray and the less common has much less paint. I posted a picture of the variation I am talking about.

    I notice some variation to the blue spray colors as well but they are very slight when compared.

    [​IMG]

    I do not own this version... yet.

    I noticed a few variants of the alternate green spray Hedoran 3 GO aka the orange one, in the same regard to thick spray versus tight. As far as the Hedoran 2 GO, I wish there were more variants.

    From what I was told the vintage IKB dolls each had 3 paint versions. The Hukko are lacking the 3rd version of Hedoran 2 GO. I know this is a long shot but does anyone have pics of the vintage IKB alternate spray?

    I wish all 3 Hedoran got this treatment:

    @ultrakaiju Thank you, Steve! It’s actually a sofubi lulled building I came across! However, micro/3D printing buildings and cityscapes is one hell of a great idea!!!

    @kichigai I’ve seen photos of that teal - ish painted Hedoran before. I couldn’t tell if that was the actual sprays, or if the photos were just off lighting. And I also have noticed some have slightly minimal sprays compared to others. The red base with white/black sprays are very loose and minimal as well! That last one you painted is so awesome. That’d be a goddamn trio, if they’d all have been done up as such!

    Wowza! Looks like old worn out denim!

    Another dream trio to wish for.......

    Let's start a list of all the dolls reproduced.

    I got a lot on my plate today but will pull some notes together so we can better identify species and variations as well as properly identifying the Showa era companies who made them originally.

    @akum6n Care to assist?

    Great idea @kichigai !! Thanks for gathering up some info @akum6n

    Looks like these recent listings might be test paints? Similar to all of those unique Smogons that turned up a few months ago.

    One is marked "Sample" in Japanese, so I suspect that to be the case for all 3.
