    Standard Goji: Marusan vs Bullmark.
    Left: Blue vinyl Marusan Goji, blue spray spine and orange eyes, with some silver spray on the body.
    Right: Light blue/green Bulmark Goji, green metallic spray on spines, big red eyes and heavy silver spray on the middle part of the body.

    I don't know if it's good or bad but I've noticed that this Radon doesn't have such a heavy blue paint on the body.

    I think it still looks pretty great. Love the flesh color vinyl showing more than the blue paint. Here is mine for comparison.

    Love Rodan (Radon)! Yeah, I've had a few of these, and they definitely range in how heavy the blue paint is. Sometimes the shade of blue as well. They're all great, imo!

    @chimply.kaiju thank you for the photo Anthony, I tried to take a better side photo where the flesh color of the vinyl is more noticeable, I like the Rodan with more heavy blue and silver paint in the mouth like yours, but this one caught my attention because in the photos of the the seller looked more like greenish metallic paint and I thought it could be a variant, but apparently the person who was in charge of the paint department in the workshop where it was made, was apparently in training or simply that day go very reluctant to work.

    @Alebrije That is a lovely example of a Rodan you snagged, I think you got really lucky there Roger, even if it was not the blue-green you were expecting. It is such a weird thing with photos sometimes, how colours can be interpreted versus in actual hand. But in this case, I really love the lighter touch of blue which was used; maybe because I love the flesh coloured vinyl, but the overall effect, especially with the silver highlights, gives him a very different look. There are a ton of variants on these, and some of the more extreme examples (like yours) are incredibly interesting I find; I also find the possible motivations behind them quite amusing. Kevin is right, that sculpting detail of the eye, the clear mouth with just that slight upturn, in profile like this he is incredible character. A great toy!

    Mark, great trio! I am beginning to think you could start your own DB/photo MOOK with all of your stashed away vintage Bullmark and Marusans. :) (and also, sign me up for a copy!)

    @djkemp - Dave, that light blue is one of my favorite vinyl colors. It provides such a great contrast for the paints.

    @deafmetal Absolutely agree, the Bullmark Standard Aribunta is one of my favourites, the light blue base vinyl with the dark blue and red sprays looks awesome.

    Special thanks to @ultrakaiju for the tip on these red and blue painted keshi. These are about 1.5-2in (3.5-5cm) tall:
