    I still don't get it. I guess because it's a new toy and open run, people are looking at it more like a chance to have fun and make the toy however they'd like, which I think is cool. but I think everyones collecting styles are different. I wouldn't want something that wasn't in the condition released by the maker. When youre collecting rather than just buying (like in an open run), youre hunting a specific version. If I come across an old Ollie I need and someone had modified it because they thought it looked cooler with a different eye color or something, I would have to keep on looking. I don't really care what people do with their toy, I was just questioning it cause I wouldn't do it.

    I don't think a lot of people are talking about modding non-open runs though.

    For me, it's all about the sculpt and getting the paint to match. The only custom I've gotten done so far is an Unbox Industries/Skinner Lolgolth Gnazgoroth mainly because they haven't done a fully painted run and I think that sculpt suffers because of it. There is an INSANE amount of detail that, and this is just my opinion, gets lost when everything is the same color.

    As for ol' Zug? I'm hoping to send him out for a paint job as well. So far out of everything I've seen the Black Moon Zug is the best, but I didn't win that lotto so I'm going for the next best thing: my favorite toy maker (MVH) getting a paint job by my favorite custom painter (Joe Whiteford). Not only will I have an amazing toy, but it'll be 100% unique.

    Well, unless people start jocking it. Is that a thing that happens?

    I, for one, being a huge fan of Joe Whiteford and proudly owning a few of his custom figures, cannot wait to see his spin on your Zuggie! He is an amazing artist and no doubt he is going to slay that troll! You lucky SOB!

    Carry on with this thread...

    Krod, the hermaphroditic penis troll, cumming to a sofubi shelf near you!

    Any news on the two-in-one head that was sculpted for the troll body back when the original sculpt was sent over to Japan?

    I should've added that I would buy a oneoff not done by the maker, but if I was hunting an actual release from the maker and I found some modded version (not a custom) then I would not want it. I'm in no way against customs. No, nobody is talking about modding non open runs as far as I know. I'm sure its happened though.

    Yeah, my comment mainly is towards this run because it was a pre order. I know some have taken painted runs, stripped and redid... i could never do that.

    I have on other sculpts... usually S7, or just cheap toys acquired through the BST... lets not forget that MVH has spiked in popularity as the years have went on as well though. but since its a pre order, you will see a bunch of customs, whether it being just adding eyes, or an entire paint job. no disrespect meant on my side. I just think we sometimes we take our hobby too seriously. I know I catch myself at times guilty of just that.

    I would never get any of his stuff customized with paints and augmented just because his designs are so hard to come by in general and also because the blanks are rather impressive even without paint. But yeah ppl probably pre-ordered more than one of these awesome meats so more power to the ones that make those customization's look amazing! 8)

    agreed, i wish i could of ordered more than one to have some fun. next time for sure. for now i think adding eyes just helps... black moon and cobalt just are so good with glass eyes.

    I was under the impression that the eyes came with the toy to be added if you wanted to. Is that not the case?

    i dont plan on ever selling my mvh stuff and i do also hate when it comes to customizing anything, same goes for buying anything customized, but i feel adding eyes to the troll just takes his facial expression to new levels and makes the figure

    I wish MVH could do ONE more run with Blopus to make an Ollie Enma meat version. That would be fucking incredible! I went off topic with the wrong topic but whatever its all MVH at the end of the day lol.

    as much fun as these Meat troll runs are, I still have high hopes for an open order DX run! Dokuro meat head DX would be fire! Rich, you listening?

    The meaty vinyl compliments every sculpt that seems texture heavy. It'd be perfect for a DX. (What vinyl wouldn't be!??!)

    I tend to not win or try to much for the MVH release stuff these days (mainly because it's just harder to acquire it's all still great stuff)but I did get the open run troll. That said more and more I want a meat marbled shelf so I can stare at it while I listen to Carcass or Cattle Decapitation lol. So these two being open as well is helping to make my shelf dreams a reality. I can already hear corporal jigsore quandary playing in the background.
