    Yes, that green is awesome. I swear I would have a blank green collection in addition to my GID stuff if I had all the space and money in the world to facilitate one.

    This has to be one of the coolest toys that Mark has created.
    Looks like such a fun sculpt, with a texture that demands playtime.

    The Tokyo Sky Tree tower was first released with a micro Negora back in May 2012 before the city building and gas tank set which came out later that year. The San-Ai building came out later. But I don't recall when.

    First USA release on blank black to Max Toy club members as a drawing. :razz:

    Don't be jealous, he was only able to get a limited amount this time around. But per Mark he plans to try and get more blank black for sale in the future.

    Since this thread is also about Dream Rocket did anyone enter the new lotto for the giant Gumataro monster figure? I think its a giant version of it anyways. Hence the bigger price compared to the mini versions.

    If i win this lotto ill definitely share some real pics of it if I get the chance to.

    Excited for the new Tripasu (pic from Max Toy Co Instagram):

    [​IMG]

    Mark mentions that it uses new molds... I wonder if they had to recast the molds from one of the figures or one of the pre-mold sculpts.

    Glad to see these being made again. I can't detect any differences eyeballing this run vs the ones pulled from the old molds. It's a great figure, I always feel like Tripasu is conducting an undersea orchestra of nasty sea creatures.

    I just got one of those yesterday and they are really wild on the swirl. Super neat figure!

    I asked Mark and he said the former.

    Ah, thanks. That's pretty wild. So these are basically repros of the original Tripasu. I wonder if they are slightly smaller than the originals, being recast off the original figure. I'll have to check when my order arrives.

    From Mark:
    "We used the vinyl parts. It's coated with a special paint, electroplated, to form new copper mold. The vinyl is heat and pulled out. leaving a new mold to use
    No wax needed ..."

    I love the bubbly reptile texture vs the mech texture on that dino plus the city set is amazing. I still have my Maxtoy shirt from 10 years ago and it hasn't faded yet.

    As for Dream Rocket. I wish I could get back those rainbow and GID Balbagon's that they first released. Not sure if they still do that sculpt and I haven't seen one Balbagon pop up in the half year I've been back.

    The old figures from Dream Rocket don't really get released much outside of one-offs.

    The Max Toy Balbagon is one of my big misses. I joined the club right after it was released and sold out. Still haven't been quick enough to score one for a reasonable price (i.e., close to original retail). Although they have pretty much dried up all around these days.

    Kaiju Zanga was one of the first toys that really blew me away when I started collecting, the crazy size and amount of detail on this thing is insane.. there's maybe 12 points of articulation off the top of my head? A stunning piece.. now I just have to empty an entire shelf just to make room for this chunky guy!

    Dream Rocket has started taking international orders for some of his new releases. Excitement!

    That Kaiju show Mark is putting together for late next year is sounding too cool to skip

    First run of Sofubi Man has been released. The flesh color is going to be the open colorway (for when the paint masks are made and that gets done). I really dig this little guy.

    To be a sofubi man pulling sofubi men... it must be pretty surreal. :lol:

    But seriously it's nice to see such a cute little nod to the unspoken heroes of the industry, the vinyl pourers and pullers!
