The snake is really nice, my favourite of the bunch. I have always admired these, they're beautiful little figures, but haven't even attempted it due to their scarcity and the incredible demand (and thus cost). For a blank small toy it is just to much for me, but then I am a curmudgeon cheapskate . I am hoping for a wider release at some point, I'd just like to have one 'cause I like 'em, but not to devalue anyone putting in the effort to collect the entire first run. I definitely admire the dedication of those who have the set so far. I really like the idea of one release per year, as it spreads out the anticipation and allows you to collect them over time, but then that kinda just makes more sense to me to build on the real fans that aren't jumpin' on the wagon and have it easily available for each release, and the dedicated people will stick with it to get the set; after all we are talking years of dedication to it. This is especially true for a mini figure, low cost, high production [and no paint]. To each their own though, great collection dokuroking.
