    Uggh, fuck those are awesome. That kong ones remind me of the recent marmit skullhead butt gorilla. Probably uses the same body.

    that group shot really turns my crank. This guy looks like a 2 headed bemon took advantage of a chicken fever

    these are the first new toys I've actually liked since I've begun collecting vinyl again. classic movie-monster look to all of them.

    Space X is cool. Would look good in some crazy clear colors too.

    i know i know... i figured there would be consequences, but i had selfishly hoped that someone had an idea as to where to get some of these. i just want one and i would be happy.

    Well whatever, I'm grateful you posted and let me in on these. I don't follow that blog so I did't know. Fun stuff for sure. I respect and appreciate his past figures, but they're not my type of thing. The hyper detailed type figures like that are amazing though. This series is more my thing, and I think many on the board's too.

    I thought Chicken Fever too when I saw it, but I didn't really think about it, ahem um, mating w/ old 2HB. Yikes!

    Re: karz works /kazumitsu akamatsu

    all of these were instantly soldout at department-h even before this post was up.
    u have to be there physically at the store to have any remote chance.
    there were only maybe 2 or 3 of each this time.
    but they are quite expensive at retail, so buying a complete set is too costly.
    will probably regret not buying a complete set down the road since it will be very tough to get gather these 1st releases after this. i am sure there will be future releases down the road though.

    Not a lot I can add except these being the most exciting release I've seen in a while... hang on, I probably said the same for Ilu Ilu and the Zollmen Zombies but these are the darkest I've seen in a long while! Too much stuff being released to handle, damn! :evil:
