    Nice haul showed up today. Just moved and still don't have anywhere to put these guys. I need Ikea to get their display cases back in stock. I blame Ever Given.

    It's Litra. They're both from the Marmit Parababy line.

    That Gomess is so damn good. I saw a good amount of the Marmit Parababy series in hand at a friend’s place, and could not understand why they aren’t praised and shown off more. They’re great!

    @grosspustule that Mescalgon looks excellent. I really dig the light pink vinyl, not enough of that out there. Any glitter?

    Feeling lucky lately--I found that One Up was carrying my favourite version of RaJIRECO's Pop-Chan, which I assumed was long-gone after an initial release at SuFes in April 2019. Seriously, how often do you find a sold-out show exclusive released to retailers again? Forgive the awful late-night photo; she deserves better.

    I also landed my first lotto win from Toky/Rentaro Fujiwara. The toy, Tomodachi First Machine, has really picked up in popularity since release in 2019 and given the maker's very aggressive stance on resellers, I'm glad I got lucky at retail. Seriously, I had to submit photos of my ID and verify my address to buy this. A little much, but on the other hand the strategy will probably keeps prices lower when they do change hands privately in the long run.

    The toy is an excellent slightly-bigger-than-your-hand size--someone with large hands could probably palm it--and the embroidered haori and helmet accessories that come with this "Silver Eye" version feel well-made, and fit like a glove (as they should). Surprisingly, the robot has a lot of movement going on, as the forearm and feet are separate pieces. My only reservation is the matte black paint, which I expect will not age well.

    Thanks man! Nice scores you got there too!

    No glitter in this Mescalgon, but I really love the milky translucent pink vinyl. It's my first Anraku Ansaku toy, so I didn't know what to expect, but there is some great heavyweight vinyl on this guy. The metallic sprays pop really nicely on this color of vinyl. I'll take some proper photos soon!

    A buddy picked up one of the earlier versions on my behalf and it's a nice item for sure, but the guys extreme anti-flipper stance and the hoops you have to jump through to buy quickly kill the buzz (+ toys with clothes don't float my boat). Dude seems way too highly strung to be involved in the dolly game . . . I can see him following Hirota down the rabbit hole.

    Quite possibly. I don't mind as I rarely go for complete collections; 1-2 more nice ones would be great over the next few years, but if this is the only one I win then I'm still happy.

    I can see how fixating on who owns your toys could give us another Hirota situation, but at least currently the toys are affordable, there's no messing around with numbering, loudly-declared micro-runs or one-offs, and Fujiwara has seemed committed to giving everyone who really wants one a shot eventually.

    That said us fans are a capricious, entitled and exhausting crowd. Paying too much attention to everyone's begging and bullshit would make anyone bitter, and a maker too focused on such things might not stick around long.

    ...at which point I'll flip the dolls for a few grand 8)

    Personally the threat of legal action against resellers seemed kinda excessive (like the dude rode into crazytown naked excessive).

    Preaching to the choir.

    lmao!

    there was a band a while ago, and in order to get a secret record they were releasing, you had to send a physical nude photo to them in denmark, for them to "keep secret" and then they would mail a record back. pure insanity

    Honestly with all the discreet surveillance, fan politics and smearing that happens behind closed doors with many hype dolls anyway, it's refreshing to have a guy just say "I have your details, don't resell it, that's all."

    Of course all that crap might be happening anyway; the real boon is, as ever, not caring enough to pay attention to it.

    Ah no wonder. I don’t keep up with the sales, since I’ve never had any luck. The little PK I do have has been graciously passed on from other collectors.
