    that looks pretty damn sweet
    but for some reason, i think it would look better without those two extra arms or whatever they are.

    Cool.
    Are the antennae poseable? They appear to be wire.

    Was the commercial animated or was it a suit? Thanks for sharing.

    This guy! Love at first sight. Definitely looks & feels like it was made in '90, not 2000.
    The sculpt and paints are just perfectly charming. The antennae are a great touch.

    Great acquisition, Rei. Definitely a super underappreciated sculpt. I passed along the version above, which I regretted in hindsight, but have always had the peepers open for the one you snagged. I am glad you revived Paul's original thread, this guy deserves more love.

    Never say never Rei. If there is one thing I have learned with vintage collecting, its that given enough time you always seen something come up for sale.
