    These two :

    And Sunguts just released this version at 2 festivals (Asakusa and Ikebukuro) and at least one pop-up store :

    [​IMG]

    It's a very limited version inspired by the russian blue cat :

    I'm trying to grab one at http://kaijublue-shop.jp/, they have some but there are not on the website you have to contact them. But it's really hard to converse and make the transaction in credit card. They don't really speak english, I don't speak japanese, thanks google translate. I will tell you if I can make the transaction.

    By the way I didn't noticed that there are 2 different sculpts, one tail and two tail :

    [​IMG]

    In searching I found that there called :
    Kaneko koromotako : 1 tail
    Nekomata Koromotako : 2 tail

    The russian blue was released in one of the 2 versions according to sell location.

    Ah, way more versions than I realised. That blue and orange one is great. This sculpt is obviously popular because there are a lot of colorways released in a short space of time (by Sunguts standards).

    Thanks for the info on the one & two tail sculpts. I wasn't aware of that. The version I have has one tail.

    Finally got another case for Sunguts. Looking slightly sparse but it means any new ones will fit. :D
    Nezumi-otoko is an imposter.



    Hopefully youkai really exist and Mizuki is enjoying himself with them!

    Great collection kappa !
    I search some of them like the yakuza in white suit, the tanuki crew or the neko musume and the oni boy (can't remember his name).He is awesome in pink.
    Nezumi Otoki seem to be the pilot ace version that I have too, good sculpt but bad paint job.

    Really impressive and wonderful collection, Kappa. Thanks for sharing the photo. I do have such a soft spot for Sunguts figures, but the Mizuki characters are especially amazing. I am quite envious of all those toys you snagged. :)

    I don't think any other figures capture the spirit of Mizuki's characters quite as well as Sunguts!

    Fedhai - Yeah, it's the Pilot Ace one. It was pretty cheap. I regret not picking up this one now:
    http://img-cdn.jg.jugem.jp/569/3275473/ ... 639768.jpg
    Those ones you mention all seem hard to find for a reasonable price now, except maybe Maboroshi-chan isn't so expensive.

    That's sure, they made the best Kitaro characters, there are Bandai vintage really cool and Maxtoy have some great characters too, but I'm not fan about the Maxtoy shiny paint, I prefer the Sunguts matte paint and its fabulous texture.

    I just ordered this variant the last few days (pretty expensive), I expect to receive soon. It don't pop up often.

    I wait for month for this Maboroshi ! No matter the color, I need one !

    Yeah, the old Bandai ones are great, but they're based on the anime characters (like most merchandise) so the look is kind of different. Sunguts' figures all have that perfect "dopey" look just like the manga characters do, and like you say, the subdued colours/texture are great. Plus he does so many characters other than Kitaro - lots of minor ones, and lots from Kappa no Sanpei :D

    Not a fan of the Maxtoys ones in general - I quite like Linden's, but I'm more interested in the humanoid characters (and I don't have room to display big figures...) There's some nice non-vinyl figures around, too.

    Congrats on getting that nezumi-otoko! If I ever happen across another of Maboroshi-chan I'll let you know.

    Exactly, some characters are the exact reproduction of manga pages (for exemple Medama-oyaji pulling the rope of Kitaro after his born). I have it too (in a different color version of yours) and this is an amazing toy !

    I'm thinking about buying some Linden characters but there are very expensive.

    I will do the same for the nezumi-otoko variant :)

    True for a lot of makers, sure, but Sunguts toys just look better and better the bigger the gang of brethren grows in any one spot; especially when that gang is comprised of so many different sculpts.

    Fun family, Feds.

    Great collection! Some of those are very expensive at the moment.

    Its nice and varied. A cool mix of Akuma-kun and Kitaro with others thrown in for good measure.
    Love the green and orange Hyakume :)

    Great to see your collection!

    I noticed that comic, too. I don't know much about French comics but I have Franquin - Idées Noires by that publisher.

    I have only a few Sunguts figures. Always wanted to dive in to collecting them. But the characters/sculpts I want always sell out so quickly or are tougher to find. These are the only one's I have from the company:

    Sunguts Barry compare with Bear Model.

    And I have the first sculpted The Dead HaHiHuHeHo GID Kaizine exclusive set. Sorry no photo.

    :(

    The following have past on to another afterlife (sold them).

    Thanks @The Moog ! Effectively collecting Sunguts cost a lot and some Kitaro pieces are sadly prohibitive.

    @kappa "Les idées noires" one of the best books of Franquin who is one of the greatest comics artists of all time ! He made it during a period of depression and you can feel it.

    @chimply.kaiju Yes Sunguts also make Kaiju, not a big fan of these, perhaps too classic. Too bad you sold this Gamera, It was really cool and I'd never seen this before.

    @Fedhai, do you have the names of the cloaked guys with text down the front ( one milky? One black) on the right side of the group shot behind the cat/octopus banks? Those two are great. Thanks

    I think they are called 'Pandemonium'. I'm not sure if its just Sunguts or a collaboration with someone else . . .

    @wretchrd cp I thing The Moog says right I have to check when I'm home back. Pretty sure it's a collab.

    I didn't spend a lot on any of mine - apart from a couple they were all bought for the retail price. (I suppose I don't have many Kitaro characters, though.) Personally I'd recommend waiting for a different version of the same character/sculpt to be released, rather than trying to pick up the ones you missed. The prices are getting a little silly now, and I see them in Mandarake or on Yahoo auctions for double the price BEFORE they sell out. There's some I regret not picking up, but paying 5x the original price for a figure from a couple of years ago doesn't seem rational to me. Also Sunguts' twitter is full of posts about how he doesn't make any money off this shit, and photos of reduced price supermarket meals, so I don't feel comfortable lining someone else's pockets.
