    Great colors on this version!! I’ve been on the lookout for a pink one, but I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for this one too. Awesome find!

    Is this a custom? I haven't seen this before.

    Me neither. The seller said it was an event exclusive, which I was dubious about, but I liked the splatter on the dark brown. On receiving the toy I can't see any tampering with the packaging or anything, so it appears legit.

    Small pkgs. came on Fri., Sat. Sun. and Mon. I tried to consolidate, but lucky just to get them at all, I guess. Anyway, except for the big Bandai 2nd Anniversary Gamera, I'm about done getting the cheap shellbacks. Will now move slowly(very) and cautiously into some more wallet crushing examples. Hope all of you are getting what you want as well!

    I showed it to Kaminaga-san. He isn't sure. He wasn't in charge of the 1990s Giant Gorilla reissues, but he has never seen that before. I haven't either, and I've done a lot of research on the original toy and the reissues. That paint splatter on the chest makes me think that it's a custom that someone rebagged.

    You're probably right, but I examined the packaging closely and nothing seemed to suggest a rebagging. The staples looked consistent in age and didn't look like they'd been tampered with at all. The feel and look of the paint seems consistant with the age of the toy. But, the fact there's no evidence online of another one does strongly suggest a custom.

    Edit: Also, usually an 'Event Exclusive' would have a sticker on the packaging or at least some unintelligible Japanese scribbled on the header with marker. Hey, if Kaminaga-san doesn't remember it, thats good enough for me. He is Mr. Marusan, after all 8)

    The foot is warped and there's something weird going on with the tail, as if it was half-melted in the sun:

    In my book, this is the best Sadola out there, and maybe even the greatest Popy monster

    More stuff trickling in from Japan. I dig the colors on this figure. And its size made it perfect for my little set-up. Rockbat keeps things fun.

    Cheating a bit because I couldn't get this guy in the mail and ended up having to pick up in store, but finally snagged the Marusan Godzilla ReAction.

    More fun in person, spines are so vibrant and shiny!

    Last of it trickles in. Marusan 450 Jet Jaguar. I wanted to see it in-person and choose between the M1-go and this. I had to sell the M1-go—but after getting this one, I’m not mad at all. He’s a smart-looking figure and taller than I anticipated.

    All scored on skullbrain, although the Smoggie was from my sale. Did not get commish, nor was there a discount. Very happy with the deal.

    ^^^ I always wished that this had kept with the Rainy-Day tradition and been released as unpainted. :(

    I had wondered about that thing. In the end, I just kept looking at it with my mouth open until I went to bed. Got up next morning, started in with the oral carburation all over. I had to pull the trigger, no other choice really if I ever again wanted to breathe properly.

    Love those Jet Jaguars @jetJagger ! Wishing I would have grabbed your offering @Vombie but I was too slow in deciding to pull the trigger.

    Just picked this Kong up. I think I can post about it here. Obviously it's a Mezco KO. I'm not going to say where I got it because I'm not sure what the rules are regarding that kinda stuff or what is forbidden. If this post breaks any rules, please shoot me a PM, I'll redact.

    [​IMG]

    But as a vinyl, I really like it. Reminds me of the King Kong Escapes Kong design a bit when done up like this. There are quite a few of this sculpt out there with minor tweaks. I think I may end up picking up the others. I own a legit Mezco Kong, but this is more fun in a way.

    This one comes with a removable axe too.
