    Don't think I ever got around to photographing this guy properly. Will have to revisit on the rare sunny winter day, but these quick ones in the dark were still fun

    Couldn't get the lighting to work and photobucket is being a pain. But here is a shot of my zagoran with micro zagoran guts.

    I've looked EVERYWHERE and through multiple thrashout store photos but did not know this existed. Rare gem.

    Is the blue the same as the Rakugaki Blue figures? Amazing find.

    I'm surprised they still have blanks of the minis to paint. How many years has it been since the last one was produced?

    I don't even remember when the last painted set was released. I believe most of the last releases were blanks inserted into lucky bags then they disappeared. I have a GID blank Tetran from 2009 from an LB. I am not sure if anything after that.

    EDIT: I do remember customs during SDCC then that trickled off too.

    Picked this up at Designer Con. I have loved the mecha Zag since I first saw it. Never thought I would own one of the customs.. ever.

    Finally achieved owning my holy grail Gargamel piece.

    Here is a pretty special Gargamel piece that you don't see every day.
    I feel lucky to have added it to my collection-- painted by Chanmen in 2012 (on wood).

    After what feels like weeks of drizzle, we've had a cold snap; it was -3 first thing this morning and I thought his frosty blue paint was appropriate...

    Not sure to be honest, I’ve only seen it in photos once or twice before. It came with a header but not sure if it’s the right one.

    The big guy just arrived. Was kinda nervous as I’d purchased while a little sozzled and then the box arrives with home office border force tape sealing the box back up so was half expecting it to be F’d.

    a little dusty but other than that all good!

    Yeah it’s such a beautiful classic set of colours. That miborah is exceptional. I love the central golden eye. Super happy to have this zag in my collection.
