Oh, wow, I stand corrected. Man, I certainly hope he is doing okay... Assuming so given he was able to put the bags together and get them shipped, but dang. If he hadn't, I certainly would have understood, as I think my customers would have as well
Gorgeous shots of that miborah, thanks for sharing!
The figure has the same quality and feel as G's other offerings and blends in perfectly otherwise. With the 55 Blue paint on last year's version, it looked good. Using the OG paint scheme on the Beta sculpt doesn't seem like a great match because the blue and brown paint areas are clearly defined on the smooth belly, whereas these were obscured on the vintage toy because of the texture. It looks almost like one of those toys that someone paints in a forced homage and adds specific designs over the sculpt to adhere to the original design. I wonder what it would have looked like with the same color scheme, but applied differently.
All that said, I wouldn't mind having this painted Beta to match with the mini and the other 'standard' color versions of the Gargamel lineup.
Picking up my bag from the mail office today!
2019 was black painted TO and black unpainted Zags if memory serves.
Couldn't find pics of a black King Joe Zag. ???
they're gonna look lovely with my bako
And the one eye.
I'm super into Tetran, the smooth belly and cyclops eye feels both perfectly Gargamel and kind of unexpected at the same time. My favorite Gargamel standard sculpt in awhile!
For some unknown reasons, I have the feelings Tetran is straight out of the Simpsons...
Such a cool figure!
I look forward to seeing your hunt results every year. Looks awesome as a group!!
Fuckin noobs. Moderators, do your job please
I've worked past the smooth belly on the Tetran, works IMO.
But what is the significance of the bloodshot eye on the two releases so far?
I believe they are references to vintage kaiju toys with red eyes: Marusan Gojira and Miura diamond/space kaiju
Wasn't the T/O in '09, not '19?
I'll try and dig up reference photos for the last few years of Zags/Miboras.
My bag was the same as wingnut0's The clear blue glitter Tetran and Rokuron Zag were my favorites from this year, so I'm very happy.
Looks more evil eye...
Sadly I bought two bags and ended up with the same bag twice. Gamble failed https://imgur.com/a/ErTW0yV
Thank you! Here's my final shot from this hunt. No miboras but certainly no complaints Congrats to everyone and to Gargamel for the incredible bags this year!
2019 was black painted TO and black unpainted MECHA Zags if memory serves.
2009 was black painted TO and black unpainted Zags.
I think this is the new reissue of the black King Joe; if I recall, the vintage one was more of a really dark blue vinyl, which matches the Zag base vinyl a little more.
Whoa, whoa, whoa... was that KJ Zag and official release? I don't recall it. But I am old(er)
2019 or 2018 lucky bag if I'm correct
I remember I got the blank of that Zag ina bag with a Thrashout Mecha Zag, whatever year that was. I think it was 2019...
i got the same bag! Wanted the painted tetran but the clear does grow on me a bit.
I really hoped for full-size deathras this year.
Fuck me. This pandemic has run a number on me if it was just that long ago. Uh, boy...
