    I believe only a few of these green are around perhaps 5. They were released at the same time the Crystal Clear. Dirty latte and orange were released. To my knowledge a handful of each exist. The Dirty Burger was also released at the Fest at the galaxy people booth! Lulu bell also had one or 2 of each color for the “May showers” online all day drops this was I’m 2015. Edit: here is the pic from the table,

    And since we are all sharing, I wanna get in on the fun! Here is the Dirty Burger as mentioned above and a little extra rancid Meat!

    I'll do better than that. How about I give you the 5 I own minus the two new ones from last year? :)

    During mid 2015 he had a sale on his website that pretty much flew under most ppl radar. I got lucky checking up on the website one day and picked these up.

    @Headhunter Thank you for sharing the photo of those five Kumon, they are indeed the same shade of green. But you also have other beauties there; I liked the crystal clear and the other brown cappuccino tone it looks great, but I fell in love with the black and white marble.

    @HardDragon I remember that a member of the board shared a video with a review of that event and for only a few seconds you could see the stand of Shirahama toys. I had the idea that there were only a couple of those olive green Kumon, but thanks for the information, which means that at least there are two others in the wild. The yellow marble that you have of that event is a piece that I like very much, I have always had the feeling that it is made of magma.

    Thank you guys for all the information and especially the photos, I always enjoy seeing images of other kumons.

    I'll take some non-potato photos of all my little horrors outside tomorrow, but I just had to post this side-by-side shot of Retinal Scarring and my newly-arrived Sakura Pink. My word. I was a little worried about having too many pink Kumons (I'm now up to three), but it speaks volumes for the care Dennis puts into each release that all the shades of vinyl are different and lend a unique affect to each toy. Sakura is probably my favourite so far. The pink is so understated, almost a flesh-tone but very glossy like you'd expect, but he brings a new texture into the mix with a flat matte green. Having that matte colour really makes the gloss of the bare and gold-painted parts pop. It's just so well-thought-out, beautiful but restrained, and uniquely creepy even though it's very pretty. Home fucking run.

    ^^ All very nice, but the pink one in the middle is stunning :shock:
    The one on the right is not too shabby either!

    Sakura Pink has to be my favourite so far! I have no idea about the optics behind this but I've noticed that cameras don't really capture the pink colour accurately. It's even lighter than my photos, very unusual for a vinyl toy. Fell in love with that immediately.

    Yeah the Sakura Pink is my first painted Kumon (I got the pink/glow swirl from last year before) and I couldn't be more pleased. It goes perfect with the Sakura Pink Gyoza-Kun that I got as well! :D

    Kind of an odd photo but I really enjoyed how this looked like a freaky hand reaching out of the log

    A Kumon always pays its debts . . .

    Thanks Roger.

    One was a gift from a good toy buddy, and honestly I cannot remember where the other one came from for the life of me.

    Love these mix parts. I’d really like to see more mixes that are out. I would also love to find an uncut white torso and head from these releases.

    I find it funny that some of you guys have black lights at home... This is not a slag. Just me being amused.

    I find it funny that you DON'T have a black light in your home! Considering they're like 20 bucks and make your GID toys glow like mad, I'm very surprised that you don't have one...

    They’re also great for hotel parties as shown below..

    I don’t just have a black lite I have a Black light ROOM! Because I indeed love to sit back and watch my toys come to life. The glow that emits from a black light is way crazy compared to just GID. Not only does it hyper charge the GID for great pics under the black light but also for complete darkness. It also brings out a lot of embellishments in most paint apps that take some toys to a whole other level.
