$300, really..?!?? I felt $120 for the Black Heart Menargo was a flipper price back in 08...
I'd love for new Bawers and Menargo to drop. Much like many other makers and toys, I got into these both WAY too late. But I am a very big fan of Yoda's paints. Dude's super out there when it comes to colors and placement. And his toys are massive, so the coverage is broad for a lot of variety.
I remember not being into the minimalist paint but gradually came around.
I remember paying about retail.
Some Cosmo Knight Alpha paints still haunt my dreams.
I think it has been a good number of years since a new Gas Bawer has been released. Which is a shame. I think Bawers are easily right up there with kougai in terms of crude pachi sculpts.
And it seems like there was quite a little hiatus for Death Menargos, and then Yoda released the the black ones with hair a year or two ago. So new Menargos have been very sporadic to my knowledge.
Gas Bawer vs Dempagon
Can you please post a pic or 2 of that black one? Never saw the bottom of it. I scored another of the vintage 1960's hand puppets that the Menargo head is based on a few weeks back, it was $5.00 plus $3.85 for shipping. I couldn't believe it was so cheap. Its a bit different from the original one I got from Japan
Dempagon for me but both are great. I love the Dempagon mash-up he made with the Menargo penis and hair. Seabed Majin is my favorite next to Menargo
I wouldn't even hesitate to buy a Death Menargo for $120.
A few Menargo surfaced in Mandrake lately for about half a stack each.
Have other Longneck fans seen the IKB TRIBUTE Seabed Majin?
If not steal your buddies phone and drool at the IG pics, Doll is amazing
He spared no details, even remade the vintage header and disc eyes
Yoda is a Soft Vinyl Magician!
@kichigai I have been drooling over the IKB tribute. Yoda did a stellar job on it. I like all the custom headers he's been doing as of late as well.
My first painted Death Menargo, and I love it! Hope to eventually get the Smogon tribute version alongside!
OK Longneck haiku time!
Weird New Moon
Longneck Moon Majin
Longneck lady, and man folk
Longneck holy crap!
WF Mashed Gasbawer also is tasty!
His toys sure are expensive and even more so on the secondary market but I really do enjoy all the detail he puts into his stuff. Not to mention he seems like an overall cool guy to talk with.
Revisted this PK: duality in the acronym for both Paul Kaiju and Perfect Kaiju. Elegance in simplicity, but also so evil in color.
Did you ever get any of the books Yoda put out, of all the ads from CKA and Longneck? I never did but have seen them and always loved his illustrations. His Kougai Kaiju crayon drawing is fantastic stuff.
No, but I’d love to. I know he has that recent zine-style compilation of his header cards, and there was the older sketchbook of his drawings available with the clear yusei majin. I don’t have any of them but they are high on my want list.
