    I think a few of you already know. gargamel thought this guy was a fly when we were first going to make him. I think it's those big beautiful eyes. I wanted.. still want to do a whole line of insects. Not too bad so far, S7 made Frederick, and Gargamel with Boris. Those two had another friend in the original drawings. I'll hunt for them. looking forward to my Bart Boris.

    ^ I love how muted it is, I think there will be a lot of interesting customs by Gargamel at sdcc.

    I'm going to eat my own words but the more I see those animal prints the more I'm drawn to them. I didn't get them at the last show but they look really good.

    These look fanfucking tastic.

    I hate to say it but judging from just that photo, I think Garudan looks so much better with Deathra wings.

    Is this the first time one-off Garudans have had those instead of the flame wings?

    There were a couple with Deathra wings at the last Thrashout show.

    That tiger Miborah is really nice, dig most of the animal prints they've done so far. I also like the water reflection style they've done with a few others in the past.

    Quite welcome. They are so dead on the style of that time period. They really look like what their vintage companions would have looked like.

    Very cool new direction from Gargamel. Anyone know if these will these be one day licenses? I hope these are widely available and they go all out with painted releases.

    I haven't yet run the text in their latest post through a translator site but I'd love to know more about these new robots especially who sculpted them - very cool stuff as these style robots were among the 1st Japanese toys I bought as a kid :D

    I know Naoya sculpted L-Gaim and I think Kiyoka sculpted Scopedog. These will be one day license items as well but I am not sure which show offhand

    Here's the main points from my low-level translation:

    - Possibly moving away from Wonderfestival, something about the ticket distribution system.

    - Using the concept of 'what if this was made back then?', similar to M1Go, Ori-Tech, and others. The Microman vinyls used this concept, since Oosato Toys had made a vinyl of Robotman at the time of Microman's production.

    - Kiyoka worked on the Votoms sculpt; Naoya worked on the L-Gaim sculpt.

    - Interesting note for some: the Baratack vinyl in the third photo of the vintage robot vinyls is made by Ark, according to Kiyoka. (Personally, I wasn't aware that Ark had produced any super robot vinyls.)

    - Speculates on the reason for the change in robot vinyl toy design around the early 80s, when designs became much more angular in comparison to the 70s vinyls. Possibly the sculpts were produced by one company, but seems unlikely given the volume of figures produced at the time. Attributes the change to the design revolution created by Star Wars and plamodel (plastic model kits) in Japan in the late 70s and early 80s. (Maybe most people know this; I didn't.) Talks some about the molding differences between the older and newer style robot vinyls (I didn't read this too carefully.)

    - White L-Gaim is the production version color. Green Scopedog is the production version color. Chanmen will do the packaging.

    - Will probably have these at Wonderfestival and Chara Hobby (a new show for Gargamel). The booth will be Den Den Gangu, not Gargamel. The next Chara Hobby will be this coming weekend in Japan.
