    Does anyone know if the root beer itchy from awhile back came with an extra hand? Atom usually includes the regular Real Head hand if he uses another weapon to replace it. Here’s a link from his blog if anyone can help out. Trying to secure a trade so any help would be appreciated!

    Usually extra parts are shown. So you might be good.

    Necromol is absolutely beautiful. That's all I have to say. Expect detail shots and my usual freakout in a few days, but for now here's a photo under a spoiler tag, so people still waiting to get it don't have to see.

    Unexpected score at the end of the year!

    [​IMG]

    He's got all the glorious paint detail of the Ghost Cider Next I was lucky enough to win earlier, but with a more vibrant palette and Atom's designs included in the sculpt, he oozes his own weird vibe.

    [​IMG]

    This shot sums up what I love best about this guy, I think. Peek the smooth silhouette of the torso and legs, the broad lines in them--and then in the head and left arm, all that gory granular detail pouring out at you. There's Mori's archetypal hero, and Atom's bladed body-horror freakshow jammed together. And they'd be a jarring combo, maybe not even an effective one, if not for that paint. It works like a bridge between the two styles, smooth fades covering the harsh lines between the different sculpts, highlighting some of those fine details but often just harmonising. Killer, killer toy. A massive thank-you to the Skullbrainer who gave me a chance at it!

    Just a heads up, Zheng seems to have bootlegged the Diver. Paint is very basic, and it's using the adult body with trooper legs, so the difference is obvious for now. But be careful.

    Same account that's been selling bootleg MVH. I don't know anything about the details of the operation, just hear the name when people refer to him.

    I'm surprised it took him so long considering how much the divers get flipped for. Thanks for keeping SB informed mate. The more people aware of these shenanigans the better!

    Of course! Atom's paint was a real eye-opener for me the first time I saw it, so I'd be upset if people here got conned out of experiencing the real thing. He's so fair with his pricing as well, so seeing someone capitalise purely based on the aftermarket annoyed me.

    I'm guessing the Diver happened because there are so many older releases, it's hard to keep track. Momiji seems to fetch the most on the aftermarket, but with only four paints it would be easy to spot boots. Of course he might not care, and I'll eat my words if that's the next one we see :roll:

    Well shit! None are safe haha. I wonder how many sales the guy does. None of his paints hold a candle to the originals, to say nothing of the sculpts themselves, but he must be selling them to somebody. Production can't be cheap.

    Has anybody else in the US received their manitchi? It's my first Atom win and I'm feeling kind of antsy about it since I've seen some have made it but mine hasn't yet. Does he ship out in waves? I haven't got tracking or anything. Don't wanna email him because I don't want to be a bother with all that's going on.

    I think packages routing through the east coast have landed, but west coast is still up in the air.

    That's a relief to hear. I wonder why they made their way to the east coast quicker than West coast.

    Received mine about 2 weeks ago, but I am on the East Coast. I can say I didn't get a tracking number, he emailed me prior to shipping though letting me know it may be delayed because of covid-19. Its possible it's still held up in Japan since EMS is suspended.

    Got this in the mail this week. After several weeks of checking the blog I managed to enter and was delightfully surprised to win.
