    King Ghidora is one of my favorite monsters, so this cute alpaca version definitely charmed me the 1st time I saw it!
    I wrote to the artist (super nice guy btw) and he said to look out for the lotteries :)
    This milky colorway is definitely my preferred so far ~

    Some random stuff I got while I was in Japan. Tried hard to save my cash for Mori's shop.

    Clear pink with shimmery silver glitter, too damn cute. Pics with my hedgehog incoming!

    Very cool Kirby sofubi pulled in Japan. Clear pink with some glitter, then light sprays.

    Been wanting one of these Koinobori for awhile, finally found a beautiful one at a great
    price in Nakano Mandarake. Main figure is clear vinyl with gold glitter. But the vinyl looks
    a bit old, similar to older clear Gargamel with the yellow tint. The omakes are a clear slight
    orange vinyl with flesh vinyl poured inside. Some paint on the outside, the omake inside
    the main figure is also on the same vinyl. Love this.

    So these may not be "must-have" toys for some people, but I've been hunting down decent Kinnikuman sofvi for a little while now and I could not pass on these. Clean and crisp blank flesh. My first Kinnikuman pieces and I'm pretty happy with that Buffalo Man.

    Probably yesterday was the best Non vintage mail day that I have had , I feel as if Christmas had come before. I would like to thank the person who made this possible, for his nobility he does not want it to be mentioned but I just wanted to mention how grateful I am. I hope the Toy Karma will soon pay him at least ten times what he did for me.

    Shinpei and Hedorah minis. On a side note this Shinpei is my first RH piece.

    Got this a few months ago, spoiler since some might find it offensive.
    Toy based off the scene from Cannibal Holocaust, designed by artist Utomaru, produced by Tomenosuke.
    Macabre and cute. The pole is glow so you can see it through the body.

    @IronPaw Man what a score! How quickly did those sell out, do you know? I was late to the party on that one but love it to death (no pun intended...maybe). Makes me want to go out and buy an HD 4K remaster of Cannibal Holocaust now and make my girlfriend throw up.....although she nearly did that last night while watching Dead Or Alive on Shudder.

    They were up for a bit on the website and I believe Tomenosuke had some of the same, plus a different release, at DCON.

    I'm curious, its a traditional Tanuki and as far as I know, it was always called RxH 'Mini Tanuki'. I've noticed some eBay sellers calling it 'Shinpei' as well. What's the deal? Did Mori name it that? Enquiring minds need to know.

    I’ve seen it listed as “shinpei” on Mandarake and toy collection websites so I figured that was the proper title for it. I could obviously be way off though!

    This arrived on an extremely difficult day as if prearranged to lift the burden of the attrition.



    Best gift I have ever had the honor of getting.

    I'm going to assume some seller has added the Shinpei along the way, and other sellers have copied it in their listings. I'm pretty sure it was originally just 'Mini Tanuki', which is what it is. :D

    So I looked up one of the listings on M, and it has "真平たぬき" written on the listing for the mini tanuki. M is usually pretty good about getting the names correct for JP vinyl figures, so I have to assume this came from something 'official' from RxH. When you run it through a translator, you get 'Mappira Tanuki'. This is getting out of my league in Japanese (so maybe the native or more skilled speakers can weigh in), but 'mappira' is sort of an emphatic term in Japanese, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense preceding 'tanuki'.

    However, if you take the characters of 'mappira', they are 真 and 平, or Shin (the same character from Shinto Gangu, which can be read as 'true') and Hira (which can be read as 'ordinary'), which together could be read as 'truly ordinary [tanuki]', which sort of makes sense. Also, another reading of these characters could be 'Shinpei', which is probably where everyone is getting that term.

    Alternatively, this could be some sort of weird Japanese word pun that only makes sense to native speakers. But at the very least, I think the Shinpei thing is not made up; if anything, it may be a misreading of the characters... or not.
