    The nutty part is, after a six year drought, four of those beauties have surfaced on the board in the past two months! Search the beast's name here for the excited reports.

    If that's not a sign of the coming apocalypse, I don't know what is.

    Pretty sure you're thinking of Ragnarök, @boon velvet. Common mistake.

    Indeed it is! I would not have guessed that was a vintage fig from your pic! Thanks for looking that up

    That's kind of an odd paint job. Not sure which I prefer.

    This is so incredibly bizarre, I don't think people who haven't been around that long can really appreciated. I was so thrilled at the first sighting, then my jaw dropped at the second; now it seems like some kind of bizarre toy karma joke. I don't know what to make of it. But congrats on him! He is such lovely one.

    And what a lovely new batch of US Toys. Kanegon(s) seem to look even better en masse. Coin-eating families rule (but they eat up those Yen, in more ways than one! :razz:)

    Perhaps they're actually sentient and it's some kind of cicada type of thing.

    Well if that is the case, it is certainly much quieter. ;) And I volunteer to be on casing cleanup committee.

    @ultrakaiju I don't know if I deserve it (I'm not collecting since so long) but when I saw it I bought it without thinking too long since I had heard of it and its rarity. It's a wonderful toy, very original, but I'll be glad to trade it one day to someone who search it for years for something I love much more.
    And Kanegon eat a lot of €euros€ to !

    Haha, niiiiiiiiiice... Where's the dang kisses smiley?

    4 in about 4montjs?! It's a skullbrain miracle. I feel like I'm falling for another April fools post.

    @Fedhai, you're having one hell of a toy year. You need your own unboxing thread with videos.

    @boon velvet That's true that I have bought a lot this year and I hope I do not monopolize the thread with my news, but I love to see your new toys and I would be remiss not to share mine. Although here's a new from Yamakichiya, the shape is fantastic and I'm really happy to could have it. It goes tomorrow to a great painter but It is already amazing in blank :

    Is... that.... a moustachioed ape astronaut?! :shock: With ray gun?! That is just too cool man, I know nothing about it, but it combines so many things I love into one, I think I adore him instantly. What a great buy! Interested to see the colour scheme you have selected for him. Was there a painted release too?

    @Fedhai
    Agree with @ultrakaiju (well, except I'm not seeing a mustache), that is an amazing piece! That's his dome next to him? Can we see it him wearing it? He looks about 10"? And, yeah, he does look great as a blank, I hope you're making the right decision to have him painted!


    Got a package yesterday. Had a different mail person and they actually rang the bell and went back to their truck, then asked me to sign for it when I came out. It was just Priority Mail, so I'm not sure why she wanted me to sign, and I'm not sure if she would've left it had I not been here (which would be normal operating procedure). Still, kind of hoping she's the new deliverer, 'cause she was a pretty hot, young, black girl with big bazoomers. I'm swear not a pig or anything, I just don't get many attractive women coming to my door, you understand.

    L-R:

    -I've been wanting some Mirock for a while, but most of their stuff is so random it took me a while to find something I knew I wanted. My crappy pick does NOT do it justice.

    -The Neclog I'm pretty conflicted about, because there's a member here who's been looking for one for years, but someone did let them know this one was available at least a couple weeks before I pulled the trigger. And I'm sure it eventually would have sold to someone else if I hadn't grabbed it. As you can see, the articulation allows it to cock it's head at some cool, aggressive angles.

    -The Chungaloid is a rare instance where I spotted something cool on a shelf someone posted, asked about it and was able to find one pretty quickly. Granted, @D-.No's custom version is much cooler than mine and gets to wear an awesome vest, but I am still pretty psyched with this guy. More sofubis with rakish fedoras, please!

    -The Wolf Thing Bat Mother was a bit of a compromise. I think it's a super awesome sculpt, but I think it looks a lot better with paint on it to bring out the detail. Guess I didn't want to wait around for a better version showed up. Eh.

    -I got a Jeff not too long ago which i think was my first Gravy Toy. This Drizzleshits is the second. Love them both, partially because they're so close to actual action figure proportions, while being awesome in completely different ways. Color/paint on this guy is pretty sweet, too.

    Sorry my pics have been so shitty lately, my "good" camera broke and I've been using one I bought at CVS :| Actually my picks weren't too hot even with the better camera...

    Oh, no, I was being serious. Pretty sure a lot of us would enjoy watching. As far as I know, there are 0 soft vinyl unboxing video channels.

    And by all means, monopolize this thread :D You're doing everything right and sharing a lot of great toys.

    @ultrakaiju Decision for color is not yet taken, I hesitate a lot and I talk with the painter. Hard to choose, especially that there is no reference to paint this model, it just came out and the painted next release will be in the fall.
    @Odibex Yes he did not have mustaches, hard to see with the blank and the light, it measures 9 inches. That's the helmet that you see next. The little monkey omake is superb too. It is beautiful toy in blank but I prefer the painted models.
    @boon velvet Thanks !

    Have no fear, well worthy of some deserving extra coverage on here, if any toys are. Absolutely lovely fella; I see what you mean about the wraps now, and I also really dig the extra shades of colour on the two 'skin' palettes. Much better than the other photos online had captured. I am really feeling that pang over having missed both of these releases.

    Good lord, man, stop buying up all the toys! I like those three black dudes in the first pic with the same bodies, especially the one on the right who looks like he might be a cyclops. Also, the colors on the two-headed four, armed guy in the lower shot are pretty sweet. i have one of the bigger ones.
