    I saw one of these in Shibuya Mandarake Tokyo last week...can't be that rare, oooorrrrrr it was a display one, hard to tell, that place was crazy like a bomb shelter.

    There are always people with that kind of mindset, no matter what the hobby is. ;) Since the Nag scene exploded into over-hyped insanity, I can't blame them!

    Ditto and I hope it makes a shit ton of money. I hope the focus of this year is on this guy rather than all the other sofubi pieces coming out this year. Now that the flood gates have opened I'm hoping that the masses focus on this guy.

    Toys are an expensive hobby. I'm not going to judge someone for investing in something, but I guess my feelings about the subject are kind of irrelevant because I neither want this toy, nor can afford it. :razz:

    Are you sure?
    It was released last friday and it appears to be shipped from USA, so I think it's difficult it reached shibuya last week...Also, I've been in that mandarake and didn't see it... :?

    It shipped from Canada, that's where Izumo is at the moment I believe.

    In hand you see the decomposing flesh vibe way more. Drops of skin, rotted guts, awesome.

    Aside from all the attention this toy is now getting.
    The gentleman Izumo who makes this toy is a very humble person.
    He has been tattooing for 15 plus years and is getting help from Hirota to produce his toy.

    He is super easy to comunicate with and will answer any questions you may have.
    I think this toy looks like a big turd!!! But thats what i like about it most.
    His awkward stance is great.
    I am sure the texturing will be great in hand!!!
    For the $130 standing 11 inches tall... Thats a decent sized toy for your money.

    You get more of a "zombie" feel (especially FULCI style) when you see one in person. The arms look like swollen, bloated, rotted little things. There's flesh peeling away from the scalp a bit.

    It's like a cute, cartoony version of a Fulci zombie. I'll try and take better pics, I suck even with a good camera. I get the comparison to Nag, but it's much more calculated sculpting. It doesn't look like a bunch of jagged, rough, textures for no reason.

    But yeah, Izumo is awesome, very nice guy and a great tattooist.

    I just hope this thing becomes the next NAGx3 so folks sell all their unwanted flavor of the month toys at bargain $$ :twisted:

    I thin only Bunnyboy and scary andy are allowed to make the 4 hour eye job joke.

    What an incestuous little hobby these new toys seem to be. Someone makes a lot of coin selling burnt turds aka Nags, people follow suit. Someone makes money using two heads, everyone follows suit......repeat wash spin. No offense to the artist, I just love to see people jack off to the same shit over and over and cut each others throats to get their new precious!

    I feel licensed and unlicensed characters from old shows are a different breed of toy. Sure you could argue that most of the live action show heroes and villains were similar but the toys are pretty varied. Some of these new toys just feel uninspired and purposely cloned.

    ^ i was making the observation that once one toku show became popular with a specific look/style of the hero character, a dozen slightly tweaked clones would pop up almost overnight. all of your beloved vintage toys are based on those shows. of course copycat toy makers are going to jump onto successful bandwagons. they're only human—just like tv show creators.

    I could be SUPER wrong. I was a bit toy overwhelmed, might have been a reg nag, stuff was sort of thrown in display cases. I thought though at the time we stopped and I said "Wo, never seen THAT before." However I saw a lot of variations of that OOZE toy thing so it might have been one of those.
    We went to all the Mandarakes in Tokyo in two days...that's a LOT of fucking around.

    Toku shows are, at least, honest about their intentions.

    But it has a purpose/direct inspiration. Fulci's "Zombi 2" film. It was based on that one zombie in particular. It's a zombie, not a random slab of chunk. Again, in hand it's way more evident. It's not just something ugly to be ugly, it's an ugly, decomposing, rotted, walking corpse.
