    I think it’s just a reflection of Dennis’ wild imagination, mixed in with a kooky toy dude personality. :)

    Very fitting, indeed! An Astro Zombie exclusive, and Funnyara is of course a vintage fanatic. So it pays homage to the Marusan/Bullmark Antlar, in case anyone wondered or missed it! :D

    @Anti Social Andy I’ve only been to Osaka once, and we were only there for a day, time mostly taken up for the show that my friends played. So I unfortunately didn’t get to visit his iconic, legendary shop. 2020 is for sure the year I change that.

    I remember seeing the first photos of this version in the @The Moog collection on Flickr and since then it was love at first sight, I always wanted to add this arachnid version to the collection and now thanks to an excellent person it was possible.

    Congrats! I think it was the first Kumon i ever scored. The white vinyl grabs the eye, he's a beauty.

    @xSuicide Squadx Robert I have always admired your photographic skills but this time I feel even more surprised by the photo of the Kumon in his bag, I know how difficult it is to take a picture of a figure in the bag because the bag always tends to reflect the light. Thanks for sharing your skills with us.

    Wow!!! @The Moog and @Alebrije, thank you both SO much for the extremely kind and very flattering words! Honestly, this Kumon was a goddamn challenge to capture, but the time invested was very much worth it! The vibrancy you get holding it in hand deserves to be translated in images, and I’m elated I managed to do it justice!!!

    @Alebrije yes it is! From the email lotto from last year or 2017? Can’t really remember.

    @chimply.kaiju Thanks for the information Anthony, I have seen the last three in collectors photos but the first two apparently are still wild I have not seen them come to light.

    Was there ever one in the lava burn (gid, black and orange) colorway? If so I need to track that down
