Congrats, el maz!
Nothing feels better than fulfilling your immediate craving
i got my woo in the mail yesterday and it looks even more amazing in person. what an awesome figure.
and on a side note, he is best friends with Pipi. they live on the same shelf in my apartment. the mailman lives there too, but they aren't that close.
i need more butanohana figures. have a few coming in the mail. feel like putting a "taking on all butanohana figures" thread in the want section.
Wow your Woo got along with Pipi? Mine didn't. He had to be separated and thrown on Woo shelf with the other Woo.
yeah, totally got along. Pipi was actually waiting for Woo to show up in the mail. as soon as woo got out of the bag they danced to Herbie Hancock's "Rocket" (woo's favorite song).
Make room for the king!
This thing is a massive 16" tall.
And a couple of Kanegons!
I bow down before you! That spaceman is immaculate!
and I'll probably strike gold before finding any Buta Kanegons.
I was just drooling over a picture of the spaceman in the new Kia-Zine. Does anyone know how many versions were released? The one in the Kai-Zine article looks slightly different.
I think there are actually quite a few different versions of the Spaceman. I've seen three different versions myself. Maybe they were all painted differently?
I know of at least 4 paint variants for the Spaceman-dude - all the ones I've seen involve some combo of yellow, red and blue. The one from the Buta/Gargamel show looked like it was re-painted. Not 100% sure on that but that was my impression.
whoa, that spaceman is great, nice pick-up tim!
spaceman dude kicks some serious ass!
i am hoping that i stumble upon one of those!
That spaceman is ace Tim! So does Butanohana actually make it? Was it a very early release? Do tell.....
Released in 1997 - signature Buta No Hana
I can't believe you own one Tim
Such a nice sculpt and huge. I remember seeing one in the gargamelxbutanohana pics and it just towers over the rest.
So I take it there are two versions (or more)??? The one in baiken's picture from the show has a yellow gun.
Wow, great score Plover. He's a big'un too!
cool spaceman - congrats!
Holy freakin crap Tim, that is an amazing score!
I recall seeing one on ebay around 1999, maybe 2000 when I was heavily into space toys,
my impression was wtf is this thing?! I regrettably passed on it.
Amazing feat in finding one!
I had no idea it was Butanohana, though I guess it makes sense as it was in his show. Those kanegons look great too, nice pickups Plover!
i just got my Orange Omocha-Jiisan Chiburu in the mail.
the figure comes with a little grey truck and a small sheet of stickers (3 i think). what are the stickers for? the truck?
Wowie - Nice pickups Plover. I love the Buta Kanegons. They seem to have just enough character to make them distinctive among the many other versions.
If the Spaceman was released in '97 does that make it one of Buta's first toy releases? Just wondering where it lands in their chronology.
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Now that would be something, I'd love to see the order of progression and everything he's released so far. Maybe one day the super(7)mook can take a crack at it.
The latest issue of Kai-Zine has a good spread on Butanohana and its history.
Too bad it's all in Japanese.
True, but exciting enough! I just ordered from kt( or whatever they're calling themselves these days) and I snagged the new zine to go along with it, I'm looking forward to it with a renewed enthusiasm now!
i placed an order and just got it as well, but they did not put the zine in my box. kinda bummed since i really wanted to check out that buta spread
