    Ah so good, congrats! I would love to see a bunch of those building sets all painted up in a variety of ways to make a real cityscape.

    Is there a checklist of all versions of the different sculpts released so far?

    I'm curious to see if the current sculpts have had classic vintage paint apps.

    Got my glitter ultraman and pink zazan in the mail today. Totally bummed I missed garamon and the mini buildings. But the 5" max toy army is growing nicely.

    Anyone know the deal with this pair? Are they a Japan-only release?

    That one is a beauty. I'm guessing that will be a Japan-only Max Toy webshop exclusive.

    According to Twitter, "We will be emailing details soon", so hopefully those go up for sale direct and not a club exclusive. I've had pretty good luck with proxy buying limited stuff on their site, so give it a shot!

    Thank you, old_seaweed! Now, I'm probably being dense, but I can't find mention of this on Mark's Max Toys' Twitter... is there an account (and further a site) for Max Toy that is Japan-only?

    Hoping I get some sort of (not-gougingly-priced) shot at this Gary!

    Thank yoooou!!

    Okay, final question: I don't see a place to sign up for mailing list on the Japan site... does news of these Japan-only releases come from being on the regular Max Toy US mailing list?

    You're welcome, and I can't say for sure. These releases aren't usually on the stateside mailing list, as far back as I can recall. I'm not sure what the secret to the other mailing list is, assuming there is one!

    As much as I like this figure, I can't help but think of how (great) it would look with the head sludge descending to cover the eyes, as with the CCP and X-Plus versions. Too many eyes.

    If those are all yours, I guess it didn't bug you too much.
    Never new there were that many versions.

    Not at all bothering me, just wishful thinking. I think there are at least 20 versions out there.

    Wow, yeah, I didn't realize there were that many already. I guess most were Japan-only releases.

    Got some LED lights in and had some fun with my personal favorite toy in my collection (for sentimental reasons)
