    Super nice. I've been searching for one of those for quite some time, never at the right price, hahaha.

    The sprays are so well done and it looks so 'wet'. Neat!

    Not really sure where to post this, this thread was a 50/50 shot
    These are totally sick looking. Hope to have one some day.

    ^ Here's a really good picture of it by Mike(like bike). It really captures the subtle color shifts of the metallic paints. This is a perfect mash up imo, both this and the 1 a page back are great. I really love all the unintentional repetitions of shapes/lines, like how the mockbat ears and the Sally rib cage start to feel similar in structure.

    I'm not sure who picked this 1 up, but they got a great piece for their collection.

    I would have loved an opportunity to purchase that one. It was a great piece i'd been eyeing since before the opening of the show. Again congrats to whoever was lucky to pick it up.

    The under arm orange is such a nice touch. It adds a lot of accent to the overall toy.

    I like the little unchi tongue photo bomb. :lol:

    Not sure where to post this, but who else is extremely excited to see this turn to vinyl? Sally Joe and Mockbats daughter?

    She is the Bat pilot!

    Not "from" the bat, she pilots the bat to fight Sally Joe.

    I'm sort of following the lineage of my characters vintage Go Nagai style, which really inspires me.
    Like there are pilot figs for the robots.

    But she is Biological and connect to Mockbat's nervous system via prongs on her head.
    The Dada looking one is more a "Patchi" inspired alternate head.


    Not to worry. Beyond a cool girlie fig, there will be plenty of boy toy creepy creeps! :lol:

    I've said it before and I'll second it here - Paul you must do a comic as your amazing backstories deserve the 22 page treatment.. so f'en awesome!

    But the other hand is definitely in extended index & middle finger pistol-pose, no?

    I believe that is the universal 'engage' sign, well-used by space beast pilots.

    All of Paul's stuff is looking tight! And as for the stories- I heard some of them in Japan last year and I will tell you this Paul has some elaborate, *INSANE* back stories. :)

    Looking forward to it all Paul!

    ^^
    Agreed which makes them all the more fun. I also love seeing the various sizes and renditions of the sculpts as well because they have their own personality. aka the ...mini boss, mini jinx etc.

    I didn't see the mini unchi pic but if someone can send it to me please do.

    Anyway...look fantastic Paul. I can't wait to see what comes out this year.
