    Re: Hirota Saigansho: Gorilla-ju, Mecha Gorilla-ju, & Tyrann

    I still don't get why people like that dripping wax marbled look. Looks really bad, and Pushead- yeah makes it worse. Whoever bought it obviously wasn't thinking straight and bought into the hype. Give me your Gorilla Ju. I'll pour wax all over it, splash paint ala Jackson Pollack and call it 'art' :roll:

    Also while we're talking in general (I know this auction wasn't two heads)- ENOUGH of the two headed thing. So absolutely beaten to death. Ahh so liberating to speak your mind when you have no fear of being denied a hype toy- because you basically do not care. This whole line has gone to shit IMO.

    I always wondered about exactly how much the colors in the pour can be controlled. Seems like most poured vinyl coloring is left to fate, but this Pushead one is far too symmetrical and multi-colored for that to be the case. I usually don't care much for unpainted toys, but this one is different. I think it's beautiful--just not for that price!

    Finally added the King Gorilla Ju database on first page. Please check and let me know what additional info or corrections are need.

    Thanks Ian. Oh don't worry I haven't forgotten about them or some of the others. Right now I have been just busy trying to fix up and update the Negora database.

    Wow Ian, beautiful photo! What an amazing simian family you collected there. In my eternal disappointment at the availability of these toys, I had not even realised that there were that many small fellas released. Really lovely toys.

    Thanks Steve! It was tricky work tracking some down, but you're right, such a great line of toys ;)

    Keep up the good work Anthony!

    This thread has been unusually inactive as of late.

    Has anyone in the US received their T-shirt yet? No word yet on mine since I paid about a month ago. He did state that it would take a month or more.

    Wonder if he plans to turn that creature on the shirt into a toy at all?

    That is actually a villain from Devilman and Demon Lord Dante, the demon [King] Zannin (魔将軍ザンニン). You may recognise him in the recent Medicom toy version:

    That's Zannin and it would be odd to go after a licensed character. I think medicom just released a version.

    EDIT: you beat me to it!
