    I picked up a set of the VAG and the quality was fine aside from a few paint rubs. But these are very heavily masked and painted so I guess it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise seeing how they are packaged. Overall high quality for 5 bucks, and the only ones I’ve picked up aside from shelterbank so I can’t speak to quality on other figures. Personally I can see the appeal of the scaled down full figures to collectors but they always seem a little too small and thin next to minis that were made to be minis. IluIlu is known for making awesome minis, I’d like another IluIlu Vag figure that was designed to be a mini and not a scaled down larger figure.

    Quality is excellent on my set. Snagged very cheap as well, as they should be.. Super fun all around!

    Wanted to start my question here: I'm on the search for a decent way to make the stickers on my Techno Loaders last forever. Any ideas? I'm thinking of painting some form of clear coat over them but don't want to ruin anything in the process. The stickers look fantastic but I can tell that them peeling will become an issue at some point in the future. I've thought about taking extremely high res photos and attempting repro stickers for the future, but would prefer something less intensive that just keeps the real stickers where they should be for as long as possible. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Yeah, the price isn't pretty. But it's been the norm for the techno-loaders, so I'm not too surprised. A little sad to see it on an older sculpt though. Still, I really enjoy the new box design and that pink is a standout to me, although the black would perhaps be more at home with the older releases.

    If I interpreted the blog post correctly, Sakaguchi will exchange people's VAG Neo Gorilla for a version with a little foldable box in the style of the big ones too, which is a nice touch.

    Ahhh I was so excited to see these! I know they're pretty much wholly unattainable for me at this point but I'm just happy he made more of the sculpt.

    Yeah google translate let me down on that one too.. Something about little arm bands for the Vag sized NG's and a mini box for them as well.
    Either way I, for one, am excited to see him revisit some old sculpts. The Techno Loaders just aren't my thing.. Now about that price tag...

    Yeah, shame we can expect a 4x up upcharge for any future 're-releases.' But hey, maybe this is just because of the VAG launch and we won't see others at all ;) I believe the VAG extras aren't for sale by the way, trade-ins for regular VAG gorillas only. Nice touch I thought.
