    As a lucky cat collector this has been incredibly frustrating for me. The batches now are tiny and disappear (even from the secondary market) before I even usually see the announcements. Does anyone know why Mori stopped dealing with US stores?

    ^^ I've always assumed that its a language barrier thing as well as maybe he doesn't need the extra hassle.
    He obviously makes a perfectly good living just selling to Japanese collectors . . . .

    There are plenty of Sofubi manufacturers that dont deal directly with foreigners - like Bear Model for example.

    No idea where it was or how to get there . . . but blink and you'll miss it!

    I was under the impression that Mori still has the clothing / toys store in a more central location
    and the tiny one above replaces Shinto Gangu . . .

    I was also wondering where to find them since the Tokyo Underground 2 book had the old addy. Thanks for sharing the info! Looking at the way he releases on Instagram hopefully I can visit twice while I'm over there in august.

    Curious about the "New" Hone borg release. I can't tell if it's a rerelease or new but looks identical to older version minus the foot stamp

    Moog, I think you're mixing up the fight fig release with the new DX 'Adult' sized Borg. The fight figure release in the center of your pics seems to be a re-do of an older release. All of the other pics you posted are of a totally different, brand new toy at the 8" size.

    Um. Not really. Maybe i misunderstood the post by Bryce.

    I was assuming he was asking about the difference between the 8" Borg and the newer 8" version with its new head and weapon hands.
    I only included the old fight figure pic for comparison . . . .

    Ah, I gotcha. I was assuming he was asking about the new painted fight figure release. I guess one of us will have answered whatever his question actually was :razz:

    Hey did anyone catch this pic on Instagram? Is this bean an actual release, or a custom? I can't quite tell if it's marbled vinyl or clear painted on the inside, but if it's marbled it's crazy cool.

    Sorry. I meant the "new" version of the 5 inch borg. It looks identical to this one.

    The trials and tribulations of a new board. Wish I could help Bryce, I'm still trying to get used to this! :oops:

    And wow, that Chaos Bean looks exactly like glass. My best guess though is marbled vinyl.

    Never been a RxH fan, but I have been really digging some of the adult figures they have been putting out.

    Apparently he's working on something with Candie Bolton and Sharla, a Youtube personality.

    Going to try and remember what RxH had when they were in Santa Cruz:














    There was this and a yellow-orange colored one as well

    Just the adult version

    There were some small fortune cats, a tanuki, and some other small toys that I can't remember as well as one of those 4 legged toys but not in the color I posted below.
