    Thanks @Kuolio ! I don't know anything about this band, but that is a pretty cool set to make, and I of course love the lucky bag idea and those jumpsuits. I wonder if he did this as a far, or commission, or what exactly? I do love to see this diversity of the stuff Oohashi-san puts his creative talents to, even when it doesn't always fall within my personal purview of things - it isn't about that [me], which is a concept some fans seem to really struggle with.

    Wow! I didn't realise how vibrant these would be. Even more impressive if the paints on each sculpt are a random selection, as they gel so well as a group.

    Seeing the photos of these is even more crushing for the majority of us who had almost no shot at them. :(

    ^^^True Stevie, and increasingly so because of Keynesian economics :x
    But, Mr. O's heart is in the right place, he creates fantastic toys and prices them fairly, it's the after market that makes it crazy

    Ok, looks like there are lots of color variations. More up on IG

    retail was 500.00
    Packaging was really well done.
    Would love to see more bands being done.

    The packaging reminds me of his paper sculptures from years ago.
    Busy, colorful, fun IMO

    Truly a high Sugoi! factor. If you break the pricing down per figure, and compare it with what Buta are going for nowadays, it's definitely not surprising. The packaging, cloth bags, super detailed costumes, and the actual toys are wonderfully conceptualized and executed by Mr. O. They really belong in a box with the same art, except lacquerware.

    p.s. Thank you Bryce for capturing the photos!
