    That's a familiar scenario :D

    I wonder if it was originally a rare lucky bag pull?

    We’re you part of that trade and I forgot?!? :shock:

    The header card says 2006 on it. I’ll post a picture of it.

    Definitely not, but I can fully relate to trading heavy for a major want and the joyful anticipation of ripping into the package .

    That Marbled S7 version may be my favorite of that bunch, then the green/purple and the clear orange follow in that order. Glad you could add to your collection @Hank !

    Agreed. That blank yellow just pops! Don’t think I’ve seen that one before.

    Beautiful toy but insane price... Could buy an IKB for close to that

    And you'd probably have an easier time finding an IKB!

    There is another gem on there as well. I want to meet this person who is selling this stuff. Also, any clue what makes the green one a sample? Looks like the normal colorway.

    Manufacturer of the vintage Hedora(n)s. Technically, I.K.B.

    The green version was designated a 'sample color version' when it was given out by lottery at Thrash-Out's 1st anniversary event. Someone else here had this one way back in the day, so I guess there is more than one out there.

    Everyone loves the unpainted yellow but what about that orange SSSS hedoran! One of the best ones IMO

    Definitely didn’t know that. Thought it was a smaller regular release. Thanks!

    There is one on Mandarake right now. Pretty good price on my eyes. For being in the bag still. If it’s the same collector that brought in the Hawaiian, it’s probably in better condition than mine.

    From what I understand there are 15 big and 15 small. Can anyone confirm that?

    Yup, only 15 of each. There are also a couple other figures with that color way, crouching hedoran, crouching miborah and a mini deathra.

    And of course the Smogon no. 1 - hence the IKB stamp on his foot (Hukkokudo reissue) - which Gargamel also did a reinterpretation of.

    I believe the others are on solid orange vinyl, not clear orange.

    All of this amazing Smashface action got me in the mood to draw this guy up last night and make a little bootleg Hedoran shirt for myself..
