    What @akum6n said leads me to believe the type on the front of your sash is the name of the event yours was sold at, Chris. Does anyone care to translate? Thanks for the pics, man. You can see it just fine.

    Nazora1 is one of the few toys released lately (or again) that I'm extra excited about, but it does fall into a category almost all it's own. N1's nothing like the other popular soft vinyl toys being released today. Even as a bot, he stylistically falls into the vintage set. And though strict vintage heads may be interested, if they only purchase vintage, there's no sale there either. Not to mention previous sculpts like this weren't sofubi, they were metal & plastic (ARK, Chogokin, etc.) with "working" weapons, etc.. Who knows, some people may not know what to make of the building blocks detail either, although my fingers are crossed that add-ons are to come... There may be more editions to the last run, but I think that enough people may still not know about N1 either, cause even though there are those reasons where people may not buy, the reverse is also true and he's one awesome and unique figure... I also wonder, even though the price point is right, if the association with Mandarake leaves some people turned off.

    By the way @Hastur , I just made the connection, you scallywaggin sea-dog.

    Chris' version says "Stealth" on the front and "blues Gangu" on the back.

    The clear black version may have been old stock from the older runs.

    I think it would be. So does my version differ at all from yours? I don't remember when exactly I got mine, but it was forever ago.. clear black vinyl, gid eyes and teath, gid and pink beeds in the body.

    My version doesn't have beads... just this weird GID plastic waffle thing in the torso.

    Alls I know is that it was a shop exclusive.
    Oh, and the silly price that the M-afia wanted for one.

    These are a lot bigger than I thought, the mix glow looks great- very Frankenstein!

    This next version (and the most recent ) I particularly love as it is based off of my all time favorite action figure - Fisher Price’s Adventure People’s “X-Ray Woman”. There’s an “X-Ray Man” as well.

    There have been a lot of good additional versions, but the Adventure People X-Ray Nazora takes the cake for me. I can’t get over that clear green and I find it very appealing that he even included the circuit board chest design! Hope to track this fella down some day!
