    Oh right- it was Pete Fowler, not Nathan J! And it was TWO damn gold teeth, not one! :lol:

    Nope, all gone- sold many years ago. I think I had kept either the HK or the brown mono (the two best), and then ended up letting that one go in my divorce fire sale of 2008. :roll: Ah, well! Life goes on...

    What a shame :x:cry: Although, I can certainly understand. Donated a lot of my toys when I parted with my ex as well. Too many memory cooties :)

    DCON 2020 Max Toy Arrival. Mark is one of the good guys and his booth was one of the best. Great stories.

    Forwarding address shipment coincided with my first Mandarake purchase in about a year. Hell of a mail day. I'll post about all of these individually once I've had a chance to enjoy them, but off the bat: Gamerudon is a big bastard, stands a good inch or so taller than Tetran, itself the tallest Gargamel standard so far. I thought Gamerudon would be the same size as my Mecha Gorilla and Swamp Monster from TE, but nope, he's in a heavyweight class of his own. Also, the Maba-style Toho finger puppets are way more elaborate than I thought. Wish I'd seen the packaging in the promotional images, as I'd have been a bit more jazzed to drop $400-ish on them :lol:

    Had no idea that Gamerudon was that large. Is he the same size as an Anraku Gogamezilla? Also, who is doing that lovely knitting? Looks like the beginnings of a nice sweater :razz:

    I'd have never thought to make the comparison myself since Goga is so bulky, but you're right on the money--Gamerudon is in the region of a half- to quarter-inch shorter, just enough to see a small height difference. The knitting is my partner's work; that's actually a sock for their uncle, and I believe one of the Christmas projects is a full sweater. I'm proud to be wearing the first pair of socks they made :)

    Thnaks for the info! Regarding the knitting, I had mistaken it for a sleeve instead of a sock top. You're lucky to have hand knit socks! :D

    Gamerudon is great. I am a sucker for kaiju w/ big flat, herbivore teeth.

    I picked one up from Maruhachi himself at DCon last year. The tag in front of the owl was labeled ‘Lucky’, as is the front of the header that came with it at the time! If I can dig it out I’ll get a photo up of it later!

    Nothing flashy but I've wanted one of these Sirene Medicom for a long time, I'm also looking for the Zanin Medicom in case anyone here on the board knows of one available. The Black Garuru is to accompany his green brother :D

    @rattanicus Great haul (including that surface, as always)! Is that Vakishim a Popy, or...? The colors/paint on that look to be in super condition.

    Inside Park "BAD HOP" has landed. Six parts, clean paint, nice compact size--it's actually a bit smaller than a Kumon. While the number of parts packed into a small frame and the detail on the sculpt makes it a bit fiddly, I think this is a strong showing overall from Ryo Inoue of Tractor Inc.

    Nice of him to offer all his toys so far as shop drops as well. The quality of the toys speaks for itself, no extra hype required.
