    It would be chaos!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    I don't want it to come off as disrespectful or undervaluing the work put into the Nag toys but if it's blank and it's from a mold that is already produced like the first Nag sculpt then it could work out as being both affordable for fans and worthwhile for Shig in the sense that he gets financial return for the release.

    I can see how it comes off as a shitty thing on my part to suggest the idea or even ask for open pre-orders from a maker but seriously fuck paying $1000 for a vinyl toy no matter how long the eyes take to paint ;)

    Wholeheartedly agree.

    Older and wiser these days but I've become pretty loyal to the people and companies that continue to make fun toys and make it economical for the fans. It doesn't diminish anything.

    I still geek out at buying a 35 dollar toy from Gargamel or PK.
    The reality is that they all sit on a shelf.

    The only thing "punk" about Nags for a while now are Ben's artistic statements concerning the whole debacle; don't make me re-post that video AGAIN. Also completely agree with Bryce - best four toys I bought last year cost me 20,000Yen, shipping included (try making that point to a "normal" person not into Japanese vinyl toys).

    If you place your mouse and click on the zzzzz's when they bend it brings you to another site to enter for a new Nag release only for 10,000 yen like the old days. Click away! :D

    On the contrary, Japanese collectors are going coo-coo for Kaiju again, events are jumping, all types of cool new toys are coming out even if they don't get airwave here. Maybe SB and Nag are in a slump, I'd say Kaiju is at a 10 year high.

    I heard that if you click each 'z' in the right combination it will unlock a lottery page to purchase a severed Nag penis for 1,000,000yen

    When I saw Bemon, I absolutely loved it. I didn't know any better that I thought the price was a genuine mistake, like someone put the decimal place in the wrong spot.

    $1000 for any vinyl that isn't the size of a 6 year old is insanity to me

    I'd trade a six-xear-old for a Bemon anytime.

    Hey Rich, if you talk about the price, it's difficult to say if a piece of vinyl is cheap or expensive from an objective view, it just depends on the market and what people wants.

    By the way, honestly, I don't think you are in the position of talking about originality, since your last creations look really the same of others Japanese artist's sculpt: the new robo-gorilla = gorilla ju, the troll = boryokugenjin, toxigon = nagball + re-bustron + kaithunder, etc...
    Even your brand name, as everybody knows, is a mixture of mutant chaos (real head) and soft vinyl hardcore (bemon).

    Best three toys I bought last year all cost me under $100 a pop. I don't care for the Nag design or the fucktards associated with it... none of em. But I must say I do like that new head sculpt zombie-type-thing. But I would never pay what people "think" they are worth. I can literally (and do) buy works of art for less money and I know they aren't going to ass rape me down the line like these figures do. Maybe COOP can chime in

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and generally free to express the same, but I wouldn't say that that is an even close to fair assessment. Forget the whole Nag culture and its respective drama, you can't really attack an artist's work as derivative or unoriginal without more clear examples than that. Rich doesn't need me (or anyone) defending him, but those examples to me seem anything but evident. Any 'mecha' ape is not a variation of the specific HxS Ju figure - as much as I love his work, he cannot claim ownership over creative license of that type of creature; it was around long before him, and if anything these Japanese artists, and their American/foreign counterparts, are all paying hommage to the originals. By extension none is of greater value than any other. I do not see the thread linking the designs you mentioned - as for the name, that is really reaching - but in any vinyl toys of monsters you will be able to see tributes/connections to other toys, that is because the history of kaiju is so storied. You can draw comparison in that same way to any toy you might see on Skullbrain. Anyways, you shared your thoughts and I have done the same.

    // Now back to your regularly scheduled Nag ridiculousness.

    Not true. Remember this.... No connection or tribute but just one hot mess.

    Alas, I have tried to forget it.

    Sure, I guess if you disregard the Marusan connection, then that is the height of creativity. I stand corrected Bryce. :razz: It's really a shame we don't have more excellent customisers on here like that. Oh wait.....
