    @SstatusSkuo Bounty Hunter just released it! An official release of the sofubi version Skull Kun in the classic black and white! They promoted it on their Instagram a couple weeks ago. :D

    @Bill They seem to keep ‘em rather spread out when it comes to toy releases. Constantly releasing seasonal clothing, and every few months a new version of a toy. Fingers crossed for the next!

    Does anyone know what the blue Skull Kuns generally go for? I see one on Mandarake for ~$40 and one on Heritage Auctions starting at $200 so I'm not really sure. Is the one on HA just egregiously overpriced?

    @Bill The $40 to $80 range is typically what I see, depending on the condition of the Skull Kun, with the sealed ones obviously going for the most. The problem with a lot of these auctions sites is perceived value, versus actual market value. And while Mandarake can be a bit egregious from time to time themselves, they do also have pretty solid deals like a $40 blue Skull Kun. Hell, a buddy of mine just got BOTH giant Meka Kun, still sealed, for $120 on the pair.

    Thanks for the insight! I figured that was the case, but it's always good to get some confirmation.

    Don't forget - those Heritage Auctions also have a buyer's fee of 25%! So that's already $250 before shipping/taxes!

    A quick a dirty picture of my latest acquisition. Very excited to have my first Skull Kun.

    Great comeuppance, Bill! The blue vinyl base is still so vibrant, even after how long it’s been released! Finally got my hands on this silver version after watching and waiting for a good while. Damn thing is in almost pristine condition for the price tag!

    Thanks! I was surprised with how well maintained it looks, I didn't find any discoloration or sun damage.
    That silver is beautiful, love how it almost looks like chrome. Did you buy it unopened? I'd be surprised if you bought it open given how fantastic it looks.

    I most certainly did buy it open. It’s why I’m so damn shocked at its condition! Whoever owned this before I did definitely loved it being a part of their collection and took care of it! A buddy of mine has the silver, and his has a weird, light blue tint throughout on the white. You don’t notice it at first, but once you hold it your eyes catch it after a few seconds.

    In that case it's a phenomenal find! Given that these were originally produced in the early 2000s (I think), I'm surprised the majority I've seen have been so well maintained.

    I'm really astounded by the size of the giant Meka Kun I just got. Before ordering it I tried to find images online that would give me some idea of how large it is. I wasn't able to find anything so here are a couple of pictures of my recent acquisition next to a normal sized Skull Kun in case anyone else is also curious. Though I must say it's difficult to fully capture its girth in a picture.

    @Bill Very nice!!! I’ve yet to pull the trigger on the Meka Kun myself, mainly because of shipping trepidation, which I know I shouldn't have. But I’ve seen the pair in person before, and they’re so awesome. Even more so if you can manage the two tower omake that come with ‘em!
