    Side note: Most of these use a black base figure. Naoki also did a lot with clear Amber figures when he started out.

    Rare fig though I'm sure, especially considering it still had the header. Like finding an old Rxh figure :D

    Re: Old Skool Zyurai Asu

    Most of the early Zyurais are very rare - around 10-15 pieces or less. It's taken me quite a while to put together my little collection. For a few of the figures, I've only ever seen them for sale once and was lucky to have a chance to pick them up.

    Now that Mandarake is putting their Cronic up on Ebay instead of the webstore, things are going to get really crazy. But I actually prefer that over the "gone in 2 seconds" 12:00 AM New Item scrambles, since auctions give everyone a shot at a figure.

    Curious to see what that purple Maverasu prototype they just put up will end up at. First ever Cronic figure!

    Shit Andy. You have some real nice colorways of this guy. Another sculpt on my Things to Collect list. I don't see too many collections of this guy. And I agree on your favorite. If I can own one of them, this guy would probably be it.

    What can be said? + a million. No close ups of the Hobby Complex Mav? Every picture I've seen of that one so far wasn't really detailed enough, would love to see a clear shot of that bad boy.

    Bummed that the one place you could still find deals is now going for top dollar. I never scored anything decent on Mandarake but it was still cool to see that deals were being had. I can't compete with overseas collectors on the bay anymore...the pathetic US dollar has been rendered utterly defenseless. :x
