    they're cute, they're rough. i will buy an orange but i am still a bit on the fence of the medicom releases... what i've seen so far the mini's are banging but the larger pieces lack a bit..... still buying them just haven't taken them out yet

    Phantomfauna - Is the Medicom one larger than the original or are they same size? In the pic it seems about 1/2 inch taller

    That's a little bit of the camera angle, but it is almost a quarter inch taller. I don't think the Dako was remolded or anything...The head on the original just fits closer into the body.

    VInyl also shrinks a little as it ages. The original could actually be a little smaller, just because it's shrunk slightly over time.

    That was my thinking. My yellow Dako is also slightly smaller then the new version.

    I wish I could have went for the larger Dako. One of the best Medicom versions of Anraku I've seen. Not as cool as this OG gem but close enough:

    I went for the mini Glutamine- all I can afford. Plus side: I'm building a nice Anraku mini collection no? Optimal for my limited space and budget lol.

    That pink is wonderful. I've always liked the green version.

    I really like the new sculpt and will try and save up for the blue version, but I wish the belly was left unpainted on both.

    Yeah I like the new dragon too. I'll be going for the blue/purple.

    What's everyone going for with the Sasakamabikuchi? Red or blue?

    They are so different. I think I'm tending towards the red but I'm not 100% yet.

    Chris, I don't know it will help with the decision, but the blog has more pictures of the storefront display with the red and blue. I like the blue Garamond tribute the best out of the two.

    I'm thinking blue. I like the tribute and I already have a red Dako on my shelf and a green Goga, so blue should balance nicely.

    they both look beautiful in the test shots. there is something really magical about the red but i need to see them both in person before one lands on my shelf.

    Aw, cute. Agreed, I'd grab one of these guys over the larger one. Interesting change in colors.

    NICE. I actually really like the panda. I remember watching the youtube vid. I get why it's not everyone's cup of tea but I think it's great.
