    The turtle is awesome. Hope when they’re released I have better luck grabbing one than I’ve had with the other Cojica releases.

    Ankeron has landed! Gamera's goofy swimming cousin has the makings of an instant classic: ultra-polished sculpt with no sharp edges, just simple shapes and smooth curves for maximum gloss. I wasn't sure about the blue vinyl at first, since I enjoy flesh/pink bases, but on reflection a blue base will let the toy age more gracefully, taking on chips at the edges of the pink areas. The joint engineering is also really smart. You'd think the fins would scrape against the body, and they get scarily close, but there's enough clearance that you can turn them all the way with no rubbing.

    I might be fanboying a bit, but this was one of my top releases of the year, and it absolutely lived up to my expectations :) It's also my first win from Cojica. Was convinced I'd have to find one on the aftermarket.

    Haven't been paying attention so this is the first I'm seeing of this sculpt - what a clunky winner! Throw out a batch on milky green vinyl with some yellow sprays, or vicey versey, and I might have to make some plans to sell some fluids at the plasma bank.

    Grats.

    Yeah I am still bummed I didn't win the lottery on that one. It's been fun watching the progress on this one and the end result is amazing. The little included bathysphere is really the cherry on top. Is it magnetized so the fin can hold it?

    Yep, opened it up in case any water got inside during the photos and there's a magnet glued to the inside. I think there may actually be a little well for it moulded on the inside, but I didn't look closely and that could also have been a blob of glue. Imagine the inside of the fin is the same. Only one fin though. I prefer it that way, less to worry about.

    Another friendly design choice is that the bathysphere has a flat part on the bottom, so it can sit stably on a shelf when you don't have the kaiju grabbing it.

    I know at least a couple of board members have been looking forward to this one and I wish you all the best of luck with future releases. He's worth it.
