    I remember learning of these when I first started collecting all this stuff. They still rule so hard.

    These are so cool. I'm always surprised though that I've never ever seen any version for sale anywhere.

    The big bummer is that they don't stand at all. Those tiny feet can't support that giant head and they tip immediately. Too bad.

    That is kinda sad. They do look great on the cards though.

    Wow, what's the background on these? Very cool and very old school. Genuine old school or retro old school?

    It's been a few years but I'm still saddened that hirogrim won't be producing any more art.I

    I've yet to see these for sale anywhere even on the secondary market. (I know the sets are limited)
    Anyway...can someone message me on how to search for these on yja? I know how to translate henshin but what else?

    Is there a specific hiragana for hirogrim or walder?

    Agreed. I dug up this old picture from Ramos' blog recently and it got me reinterested in them. I'd love to see the little kid with the net made into vinyl.

    50 sets? hmmm.. no i am pretty sure 50 total so 10 of each + 10, i know at least one collector that has unpainted versions so there may be a few, unless those are the + 10. also if there were 200 of these made they would surface from time to time. 50 total = thick henshin collections. who cares if they stand, carded are true takara. shame there is not much interest in this stuff stateside

    similar to VXFXC microwaruders, SXOXP microresins and the underated microshit OG microkit, these were all very limited and very well done. there were some child sized shirts made of Hirogrim designs. too bad Secretbase did not work more with Hirogrim.. he was so gifted and ultra talented.. +1 for the 'collectorghoul' being made into vinyl- would be a nice posthumous tribute to his great designs

    They used to come up on Yahoo Japan - but I havent seen any for the last few years - not that I check much - but before that I'd see em regularly.

    I actually saw one, the buta dude like a year ago for auction but I didn't even know what these were. Then I undertook a little research and fell in love. A little too late but at least I put them in my wants list. Never seen them again. I search for them regularly as well, but no luck.

    I posted this in the super festival 60 thread but this seems more appropriate.
    Petite Henshin plush Inazuman by Take-Shit I guess as a tribute or I dunno?
    It's in his case at SF60. Any more info would be much obliged.
