    People have a crush on ITAMU's teeth... But be careful not to be crushed!

    Thanks folks!

    Personally I like the gun metal release more than that one-off that just was sold on YJA...

    But Ana's Itamu is never to be beaten!!! It's still the best.

    The Gun Metal Itamu is really something else.. Would also love to see a version that matches the blue Cococroc.

    Well if multiple people were offered & allowed to buy them how is that not a release? Sure it wasnt "public" but this isnt like a one off gift or trade or anything

    So not released is what you're saying. ;)


    Who cares anyways, it's a cool toy and it sure has taken the top of most of our wanted lists around here.


    The guy that had a card sent to him, could you share a pic of the two full sides? What a neat little gift.

    Left, Right, Middle I believe, as the two in the middle are from the same set. (correct me if im wrong)


    Nice shot! Is the right one on dark green or black vinyl?

    Left came with the blue MG2, the middle pair are from the Mr X Man set and the right one is from the unpainted King Gorilla release - he's dark green

    More recently with the red MG2, a larger alien was included, presumably the same size as the alien in the X Man set?
