    Naoki is pretty new and just released his first vinyl toys at WonderFest last weekend, so why not start a thread?


    First up is SSSS.Gridman toy





    He also released this new one, Creepy Giant. Reminds me a bit of William Birkin from Resident Evil 2

    I like the Creepy Giant sculpt. It has some nasty fleshy flow to it.
    It seems pretty large though, as are most Planet X Asia toys, so I'd like to see it with something more familiar.

    Not feeling the first paint release though. The details are painted cleanly but the black "ooze" and overall redness is not doing it for me.

    Kind of agree with that first paint. The blank looks more monsterous.







    I did love the bouquet of arms!



    While that was licensed, he has done some other stuff in resin:

    Great to see more Japanese artist threads getting posted here, good work.

    For me that Soseikoubou Gridman kaiju is absolute perfection. Would be one of my toys of the year (if I could get it :lol:)

    I had a mule at WF that did pretty well for me! Shame I would have asked to grab one for you.

    @spatula007 I know it's 12" tall but width is hard to say. Almost looks like the with of a Krawluss is what I am guessing

    Lucky boy and thanks btw. I might have to scour the aftermarket coz I got the urge now. That sculpt is looping in my head. How much were these retail, do you know? Also I should correct my earlier entry to say that this kaiju’s name is Nanashi (B type version).

    That I don't know. His prices were very reasonable though.

    Good news is he is reselling them in the future.
