    @toothaction that green Gary is the one I've been waiting for Buta to do. UGH. Looks like I picked the wrong lifetime to quit sniffing gl- er, collecting toys.

    @zindabad 'grats on the Miclas! He is a joy, play-wise and photogenically!

    Happy to see more Buta pics from D. Your pics inspired me to travel down the Buta rabbit hole to begin with. Zero regrets!



    Picked up this beauty a year or two ago, it took me a while to figure out a good spot for photos. He’s so tall and lanky. My dearly departed grandmother did the needlepoint on the chair he’s sitting in.

    Great start! Buta toys always makes me smile :) That blue Ultraman is especially nice (and especially hard to find!), keep your herd growing :razz:

    I'll keep working at it! The blue is showing his age a bit, since the vinyl on the face is discoloured and a bit sticky. I see the beginnings of it on Ultraman Nise as well, but not as bad. Still a lot of fun though, and happy to have them side by side.

    Great choice on Dodongo. I like, perhaps, only 50% of the Butanohana figures, but he really hit the mark with that one. It distills down everything good about the Bullmark figure into Buta's simplified, rough style.

    @Bob - Excellent goji adoptions. I believe the blue one is by M1GO from the mid-size yellow egg set.

    Luck is such a dumb, blind thing. Very happy with this lineup.

    Took the boys out today for a dance-off/back-alley fistfight.

    I'm sure someone has pointed this out before but in case you didn't know, the grey vinyl has subtle micro-glitter that makes them really pop in hand. You can see in the full-size shots, more apparent on the fake Ultraman.

    Getting a new riser hasn't helped me much with spacing, sadly. The pitfalls of limited space :evil: still happy enough, but I'll have to keep working at this.

    Gorgeous shelves @zindabad ! I think the spaced out lineup like this highlights the beauty and importance of these wonderful toys. You've amassed a very lovely group of fellas there, and while I know the focus here is on the Buta toys, I can say that they are in very fine company indeed with those 'big brothers.' :) Thanks for sharing!

    Haha, yes. In my Booska collection, I have some love for some of the other characters the Booska suit actor played too. They can be in buta or u.s.toys form.

    Not new [or news even really], so I guess I'll just leave this thought here.

    I guess this is where we find out how deep those 'new' collectors are willing to go. :|
