so these were produced by Medicom--were the 14" versions sculpted by T9G???
His name was all over the one I had, so I saw no reason to doubt that he did.
I hope that helps!
I can't say I'm 100% certain, but I believe so. I don't think there would be a reason for him to hand off the job to someone else as I believe he sculpts all of his own work, plus works under the commission of others-I was to understand that sculpting was his primary expertise.
Speaking of which, his absolution toy is pretty cool.
Especially the back.
yeah I'm digging that one completely. it's on my hit list.
thanks for the comments. I'm dying for a 6" version, but the big ones will have to do until then. I have mitsuke. the big one has really different feel from his usual works--not just in design but in execution. I had to wonder. good good stuff.
The Medicom line Yumenokos are nice in their own right, but they definitely don't share the appeal of the originals-I believe these only stand at about 4" tall, pretty small but so cool. I still have the few I managed to pick up a long time ago, but hating myself for not picking up the others whenever I had the chance. The nice thing for dedicated collectors is the low count for completion, but with such low production numbers I'm grateful to have the few that I do. I was under the assumption he only made seven models including the Usanoko, but I came across two more just a while ago in which I was unaware of their existence (pink flocked w/black arms & full clear).
The only one missing from that database is a clear body/legs w/pink arms/head. There's also the blue/black plushes, but those never really interested me.
Here's a sick Franken custom by Dehara I felt the need to share.
There are other versions than the ones in the database and the missing few you mentioned.
There is a clear purple version for sure...
The big versions are cool, but the small version is a perfect toy.
Wow, that I definitely have not seen. I would love to see evidence of this if anyone happens to have one.
the condition isn't perfect, but a little wabi-sabi doesn't hurt such a nice score (for me).
Love the smaller yumenoko. I WANT ANOTHER!
That Usanoko is a nice score! Did it come with the original box/sock mask?
Yeah, it came complete. Box, mask, certificate, and signed edition 5/10. It fits so nicely with my collection in size and presence.
That's awesome! One of them popped up on Y!JA a couple years back and I passed up on the opportunity to grab it. Dumb.
I'd love to get my hands on one more of the original models; the first release black or the GID would be great.
Not sure if I ever shared this here, an old project I did for a drawing course back in college using the Kodomo; chiaroscuro, black and white charcoal pencil on 18" x 24" paper:
^^nice drawing dude!
Thanks guys! I remember having to assure my drawing professor that it was indeed a still life as per the project requirements... think he thought I just dreamed up some twisted doll.
