    Really? I think the last one went for 10,000yen on Mandarake but who knows when that was. I wish there was a way to see the last time a product sold on their website. Anyway, that's about average for new Yamanaya sofubi in 2022. I have seen them fetch for a lot more on Y!JA though with 20,000yen being the baseline for all variants in recent history. Retail price was 5,775yen back in 2006. :razz:

    A recent arrival and special acquisition... had to comb the corners of the internet for this one. Don't worry, he'll be getting some fresh air soon enough, just need to reorganize some shelves. :razz:

    Actually this is about 3 deliveries, just hadn't gotten around to it. But that's all for this year I'm thinking.

    Neatness! Especially dig the red toothed whale and the amber figure to its right. Is that one some species of extinct, giant ratite?

    So, when I saw that Marusan did a gray vinyl version with green metallic eyes, I had to find one. This version just made me feel nostalgic of playgrounds in the 80s growing up. Sometimes I select certain colorways on more of a “yes or no” face value thing— but my favorites are from the type of nostalgia the colors inspire. RxH used to do that big time for me—that’s why I liked them so much. Koji does that too for me too. It’s familiar and new at the same time.

    Anyway, this one makes a lot of sense to me.

    Japanese had giant Diatryma toys, we got cereal box premiums. Not complaining, just noting the diff. Love cereal box premium toys, they should bring 'em back.

    That pearlescent Bandai Gamera was an exclusive from the first Asian Fantasy Film Expo. It was bootlegged, but I can tell that's a real one. Open up the card, you'll see the sticker.

    Ahh. Just knew that I liked it. The seller had kind of nudged me towards it, so I bit. When I opened the box I went "ooooh". Also "wooaahh."

    @doomboy congrats on both of those beauties! Umemon was challenging for me at first, but since I've been really interested in that specific color run. Those hands are perfect. Great (and inspiring, along with that background) pic!

    Those are great colors, agreed, and sweet sculpts, as pointed out the hands are winners!

    got this in person and not in the mail, but this is probably one of my favorite pickups lately - Yakult + Ultraman = Yakultraman! This thing was so absurdly awesome it caught my attention right away, you can imagine my surprise when the shop attendant told me the price - $27
