    I'm kind of glad I didn't get a chance to pick, because I wouldn't know which one to get!

    At least that's how I justify never owning one of those, anyway. Le sigh.

    Those pictures are super cool. Do they still sell all the 'old' furniture or are those tables just used to display Shikaruna toys ?

    Shikaruna Koubo really gets the juices flowing..These are first class toy's.
    I think I'll have to add one or two or maybe a few to the collection.First thing I need to do is track down a Dororu,It's such a wicked lookin bastard.

    Re: Shikaruna Koubo Database

    My only problem with these sculpts at ALL is they wouldn't fit in with any of the more "lo-fi" style sculpts of the stuff I collect. I love them, but they'd really clash oddly. I love looking at the pics though, maybe I'll dive into the minis some day. Some of those things look to be the size of someones head!

    I understand what your saying BD,they would need a place all there own.I do think that red
    Dororu would look pretty cool with a set of Red RxH Devil Dog's..

    Re: Shikaruna Koubo Database

    A Japanese webstore sold me the SF Genju Dororu and one with the green header that's labeled "Magenta" (they did not say it was a one off but they generally won't).

    Does anyone know if the SF red is the only production run, haven't seen the Magenta they sent pictured anywhere else so unless there's a second production run its a HP one off?

    My red Dororu finally arrived and all I can say is.......... He's frickin HUGE!
    They could make a hundred space troopers out of this much vinyl.
