    Does anyone know if this was a one off or from a run, I don't see it in the database ?

    The lack of header card makes me think it was from the lucky bags.

    With the minimal colors esp. on GID vinyl its the best one I have seen so far.

    Rich you won that? Good for you! I was watching but no $. Yeah it's from this year's Lucky Bag. I'm assuming Shikaruna had leftover Maddalla figures from the GID run, and some made their way to the LB's. It is the 2nd one I've seen on YJA. Both went reasonable. Now if only Shikaruna would ship my SP GID Maddalla and Lucky Bag it's been a month since I paid -jeez louise!

    I just noticed now that the entyire database was removed. That is really dissapointing.

    It looks like Siccaluna is coming with a new sculpt for WF. In my books this one is a winner. Personally, I can't wait for it's release.
    Here is an image of the painted prototype.

    So the great debate is over. S-K posted on its blog that the company name was intended to be "Siccaluna," not "Shikaruna."

    The purpose was to craft a word that would be easier to communicate to foreign customers. However, we (and I accept some of the responsibility for this) took to calling them Shikaruna based on the romanized form of the company name. Now there are more hits for Shikaruna than Siccaluna when you Google the two words. So they have started using OUR spelling. By our spelling, I mean our romanization of the Japanese characters for an English word fabricated by a Japanese company.

    They don't say what 'Siccaluna' means, other than that they made it up. If you look at the logo for their membership club, it is a moon with deer antlers. This is probably an inside joke. Shika = Japanese deer, R/Luna = moon.

    And there you go. Nice work, guys. ;P

    I'll take a lot of the blame. :lol:
    For the longest time I debated about correcting it to Siccaluna but then I was too lazy.

    Glad they could take the time to correct that for us....now only if they could correct my mess of pending orders..... :evil:

    ...well if anything this shows us that they probably read the boards.

    Cool! I'm glad they took the time to correct us. It is only right they get their credit--especially if "we" were changing the course of internet traffic. :oops:

    Yup! Crazy colors and superb application. The Zag is very different from what he'd done. 8)
