    Back when you'd have to check his website everyday and then miss a lotto because you went away for a weekend.
    I doubt I'll ever win again. I won the leviathan but that email went to my junk mail and I wasn't in the habit of checking my junk mail everyday for toy lotteries. So I have a feeling I'm on the "bad"customer list.

    The Yamashi one?

    No it's still public.

    If you can't see it you probably just got blocked.

    I really have no problem with the price. If you've been in the game this long and are considered a pioneer then you should be reaping the benefits of your work and dedication. If you use this position to turn sales into a circle jerk shit show, and are systematically helping to ruin the hobby, then you are an asshole and basically void all respect you have earned along the way...IMO
    Seems like greed has outweighed his respect for the scene that basically built his value/fame. There are more respectful ways to earn just as much from your creations. I think this is mostly about ego.
    Good thing I never got a chance to collect any hxs toys and feel comfortable saying I wouldn't put one on my shelf now!

    Great tribute

    One thing I find interesting is that the heads look to be in the style of the new Gorilla-Ju sculpt that appears with the Bruiser-Z battle sets. More realistic, with smaller eyes and such. Could just be that the new head meshes better with a Famous Monsters cover style, or it might not mean anything at all. But maybe a refreshed King Ju is in the works.

    Which is whatever to me, because the newer Gorilla is ugly as hell to my eyes :lol:

    Only reason I can see for catching a ban is someone telling him you flipped a toy.

    Too many Rolex posts, for sure.

    Not enough Rolex posts is also grounds for a ban, because you might be too broke to buy a one-off in Shanghai.

    It's a fine balance.

    Was digging around online and found an image of Yonezawa's Gamegon. Don't know much about the sculpt, but noticed this pachimon bears more than a passing resemblance to our dear girl, the Kraken.
