Definitely digging that! The spots and mouth are awesome accents.
Also should be noted this is a clear Eleking tribute, I am glad Bemon continues to do tributes to classic Bullmark colorways.
poached from ka_iwi's flickr account.
Yes, thanks for mentioning it, good point. Makes it even better!
Found this oldie but a goodie whilst cleaning up Flickr this morning. Been thinking of releasing one of these back into the wild but can't decide which one.
That would be an easy choice for me. That translucent blue is easily one of the best and a keeper.
My brown/copper one decided to take a four foot dive out of a detolf.
@Michael Beverage How the heck did that happen?! These are pretty stable.
Detolf door was open for rearranging and I knocked the case with my big arse.
I've always found 2HB to be a bit top heavy and unbalanced, but maybe the detolf is not level enough. We have an older house and quite a bit of settling has occurred too.. things is askew
Probably my favorite version. It's perfect.
Spoiler: full body pics
I really like that one! I like the versions where the colour is more subtle.
Yes, almost like a orange/brown (root beer?) color
it only took about 11 years to find one that i could afford, and get in there quickly enough to purchase it.
this is one great toy
I feel the same way. I'd like to own a Bemon (I'm sure I'm qualified- lol that joke will never get old!) but don't want to kill myself buying one. BTW what is all that cool artwork behind the Bemon?
@michael The truth is that I am not very into the Bemon and in fact I do not have any of its figures, but this one in particular has a beautiful colorway and the background works great with the photo. Congratulations for this major score, it's always rewarding when you get a chance to take something you've been chasing for so long.
Every time I look at my kougai collection, a solitary tear rolls down my cheek and I know somewhere out there, this song is playing.
@xSuicide Squadx @Rich @deafmetal -some more pics of the new Kougai. @phantomfauna already posted one but here are a few more. Click through to IG for a shot of the back.
Robert it’s definitely red and not pink paint, but bright red and can look almost pink depending on the camera/light.
@Michael Beverage Thank you for the additional shots, and color clarification, Lee! So wild to see the Kougai come back with a whole new painted run. It sort of looks like there’s an overall metallic blue, with a slightly darker shade around the red on the belly. Is this the case, or simply a trick of the lighting?
You are correct sir- there is a darker red beneath/around the edge of the belly and also on the mouth.
It’s a simple paint job conceptually, but executed to great effect as per usual with Bemon.
What!? New Bemon?
@---NT--- I pretty much had the same reaction. He didn't sell these via any public channel, other than his YJA account, but it was really cool to stumble onto these during a casual search. Some of Bemon's best qualities about the paints, is, theyre generally pretty simple, but the colors and unorthodox placements set them apart from just about anything else.
That's super cool that Bemon lives on! Not sure I'd want to pay auction prices for one at this point, but I'm happy to see him in production.
I'm totally out of the loop these days - I don't follow stuff on IG or other platforms, just poke my head in here daily to see what's what.
@---NT--- The auction prices for Kougai don't get too bad. None that I've personally seen hit Mandarake prices, unless they're one of the original one offs, which is self explanatory. The 2HBemon always climb like crazy, of course. I'd love to own a Sea Monster, too. The Space Monster is pretty rad, but I do have the Target Earth Marilla, which I personally prefer. So I think I might be good off that.
I wish Target Earth did a full size of the other figure from the set.
