    well, let's see ... he just got about $12k selling 6 of the 30 gid 2-headed guys. so no, he probably doesn't need to go to work anytime soon.

    I'm pretty sure it was an edition of 20 ;)

    BTW, the prices that these sell for is just DUMB!

    So were there 10 unpainted? Or was the whole edition 10?

    these were pulled at the same time as the "rubbed" painted gids
    it breaks down to the same numbers 30 dolls made except the mix
    parts & solid black which i understand were less than 10 each

    here is a very rare pic of the artist who created the sculpt from
    the film version of the 2 headed monster. his name is Wah Chang
    and he worked on so many puppets & stop motion it is stunning!

    here is a sneak peak at an article on Monsters that talks about the full circle of the 2 headed Beast.

    the concept & sculpt look very weird next to the FMOFL cover or the SVHC doll but hold the test of time in their ugliness...

    Did anyone even bid on the last one?

    6,000yen seems like way too much as a starting price when you compare it to the starting price of a full figure. I could see these getting a little more interest if they were painted heads bagged or it had a cain.

    Not sure... I'm not even sure what to make of these (except that as much as I love Bemon this is definitely something I wouldn't even consider for a second). I totally agree, why not go for more than just the ball (I liked the previous bemon balls, especially black ball / chain / leather strap).

    Painted heads, with a bottom cap would be awesome. Much better idea than just the spike ball.

    All I can say is that after your question I kept an eye on the second ball...
    that went away for 18500!! :shock:

    I do like the colors on this one but wish Bemon would have painted a run of the Kougai thing instead. It just seems like a pretty silly way to blow a lot of cash.

    Right but if people are willing to pay that?? How can he not. 224 dollars literally for that is crazy. I wish I had that kind of cash.

    Why do these "Bemon" balls, have a seem? That's a lot of money to take a chance with...

    When I see these Bemon balls I can't help but think of a group of japanese CEOs buying these as their way of spending crazy money on something ridiculous and banal. A kind of stick-it-to-the-man statement, for themselves. Like, one of them is all like Patrick Bateman, but the rest can't see it over their expensive whiskey and mountains of Gorilla-jus with nag heads swapped in. They still think he is trash for liking zollmen so much. All of them keep trowing money in heaps at these, just waiting for the next thing to rave about.

    I dont know, at least that fairy tale makes me feel less like a poor SOB, that will never own these.

    I dont know, I dont know what I want anymore. Not the ball, but the 2 Headed monster is a really cool sculpt. :?

    It's not going on my wanted list anytime soon, thats for sure.

    Yeah, the 2H is one of my all time favourite sculpts too. I also liked some of the previous chainballs (black or silver with the leather straps) but these? I really can't see the appeal, if they were tickets I would've loved to see a camo 2H but as single one off balls they feel too little to bother (besides the price...).
