    Recently picked up this great little Alien Baruden (is that how you spell his name in English?) バルデン星人
    Thanks goes to my neighbor @toothaction :razz:
    It'll hold me over till I find a standard size version someday... I talked to Kazumitsu and asked him if he'd consider making any more of the big ones, and he told me that he'd look for the mold in his warehouse when he cleans it out this fall/winter.

    Can someone please help me and remind me of the difference between the Monster Heaven line,Vinyl Paradise, and the normal Marmit line?

    Also are there any figures/molds that were sold under more than one header card?
    Any info is appreciated! Thank you!!

    When Marmit started in 1997 their series line was named Vinyl Paradise. Around 2001 the VP series name was dropped and permanently changed to Monster Heaven. Monster Heaven is the normal Marmit line.

    Also are there any figures/molds that were sold under more than one header card?
    Yes. Any Marmit sold under Medicom Godzilla Vinyl Wars line originally used Marmit header cards. Any Vinyl Paradise reissues had different header cards in the Monster Heaven series and again if reissued with Medicom used the Medicom headers. There are more examples, but you get the idea.

    Some rather impressive factory paints! Not a simple figure to add that level of quick details to, I'll bet. Everything about this release was above and beyond.

    The vader will be silver/grey?
    Why a blue glitter chewy? Any reference to this colorway?

    The wrinkles and creases on the suit really bring that guy to life. Not to mention the seams (darts?) on the fitted suit top and the little bulges at the knees.

    Totally agree! I think this is a great example of the importance of subtle nuances in a sculpt. There really isn't a whole lot going on on this guy in contrast to a lot of other toys, but those little design choices give it such a great lively feeling. I also really like the colors used on it ;)

    Another beauty by Marmit! Grabbed this really cool clear vinyl Alien Maguran from a fellow board member here (thanks!). I don't typically go for clear vinyl toys, but I think this one is done really tastefully.

    @grosspustule Man, you have some good light for photographing toys. I never seem to get images that do my stuff justice.
