    Gorgeously textured. Still kicking myself for sleeping on this when the lottery went up, but I think it'll be in the hands of fans with better appreciation for the vintage nods than me

    I completely agree because I want to get a couple of these for my co-worker's kids, I know they would love them.

    Same! Trying to sort myself out first :lol: but my little sister loves my kaiju and she'd have a lot of fun with this one.

    @xSuicide Squadx For the sake of saving my keyboard from drool - please, stop! :lol:

    Jokes aside, absolutely lovely photos. Everything about this toy brings a smile to my face. It's great to see a figure clearly made with such passion and dedication to craft get the praise it deserves.

    The combination of posture and texture is brilliant too. The soft curve on the arm and crease at the elbow stops it looking totally like hard plastic, but the bulk and angle on them lends a bit of a stilted feeling. Really nails the 'sweaty actor in a suit' vibe for me ;)

    Someone needs to swap out the head for a M1GO or vintage actor head now

    Thank you, @Roger!!! It’s easy when amazing artists give you so much to work with!

    @zindabad That is one of the coolest takes on this I’ve read thus far. And now that you’ve planted that mental seed, I’ve added a whole ‘nother way of lookin’ at this toy! :shock:

    Thanks for posting all these killer photos Robert.

    I forgot to mention, I think the squirt gun is vintage dead stock! If I was translating Lenny’s IG post correctly, he found a slew of old water pistols for this release. Such a cool idea.

    @Michael Beverage Thank you, Lee! Gotta keep up the visual archives of greatness whenever we can! Knowing what I know now from reading your tidbit about the Beretta, I’m glad I’ve already decided not to open it! I was *this* close to opening it as a prop for the photos, but fastly decided against it! I already can’t wait for the next release!!!

    Thanks a bunch, @Max Rodriguez!!! There’s been a single GID test pull he’s posted before. You can see it in Lee’s initial start to this thread. Personally, I’d love to see a red base next. But I also really wanna see a powder blue base with some yellow sprays and gold accents. Black base would be really nice, though I’m not sure what would pair nicely with that on a vintage - esque toy!

    Powdered blue would be awesome for sure, black would be too. Black blanks are always so fun to collect so id be fine with a blank! I saw a sanda and gaira black set and a titanosaurus as well on ebay and those look great like that.

    I like flesh base. I think that is king base for any paint work.

    Flesh or powder blue would both be big wins in my book. And this could be either ;)

    I did go back to this post a couple times to gawk, and noticed he said this is just a sample, and not a tease for the second release.

    Looks like Navy Blue is in the running for a potential base.

    Beautiful colour, but do you think it might be just black with sprays? If you look at the hand it seems sprayed over the top and blank on the bottom half.

    Lenny says it’s a navy blue test shot in his IG post of the pic.

    Eventually black base would be a nice release, but I’m really digging the navy blue for this sculpt.

    I much prefer navy, so I'm glad my eyes are playing tricks on me.

    I’ve seen this navy in hand before on a different toy. It’s incredible to the eyes, and a very deep blue. Testers on the edge of a black and of a green. Impatiently awaiting what sprays he’s gonna drop on this base.
