    The fading is really impressive, especially considering size.

    I wonder if he paints everything himself.

    I believe he does. I know for certain he painted all the GID Diablos himself.

    I don't know if anyone noticed, but Ilanena revamped his website:

    http://www.ilanena.com

    A few interesting links to check out, and he appears to be cataloging past releases.

    Have any stores sold the recent sets over here? I must have completely missed the Sofvi Mania set.

    Some of the newer sets are all pretty cool.

    Thank you for the heads-up Akum6n, I used to check the old site every so often but gave up as it never was updated.

    There's a nice full page write up of Ilanena in the new Hyper Hobby.

    Thanks for the headsup.
    Too bad the majority of us doesn't have access to HH nor have the ability to read it. :evil:

    Hmm, sorry, not sure what to say... :?:

    Just wanted to give folks the heads up.

    (BTW, if you're still in Taiwan, you can easily pick up a copy of HH.)

    I can get HH in Kinokuniya (cant remember if that's how you spell it ) book shops.

    Expensive though.

    That's awesome. It's the main pic in the HH spread. I'm glad Ilanena-san posted the pic on his public flickr so everyone can see it. So cool.

    That's nothing short of incredible. I love these things, and there are more than a few in there that completely knock me out.

    I like these, too, but (and I've told him this), he has to sculpt something new, even if it was three more Kewpie Mayo monsters. He's been making the same three figures for almost two years now.

    Sadly or happily, I think I could recreate that group pic...I do love these things but agree with Roger. I've been waiting a long time now for him to make the other "mayo" monsters. I thought that was part of the original plan? Especially since the other guys have always been mentioned on the headers?
