    Jesus Christ. The dino heads are some of my all-time favourites, the OG red especially. But I think I'll keep waiting :lol:

    Ha, I was wondering where that would end up. Definitely a piece of history.

    This price is insane. Far nice PDS X RH for a mere 350,000 elsewhere

    My guess is it's a bootleg attempting to pass as the release seen here (photo courtesy of Kaiju Monster on Flickr):

    [​IMG]

    Virtually identical vinyl base.

    Indistinguishable hair color, but too long and curly.

    Similar palette, but paint colors are obviously off in their hue, distribution, and overall application when compared to the original (assuming I'm correct on this being an attempted emulation of the noted figure).

    When someone selling an item of this nature includes the following in the product description it is highly suspect:

    * Translated

    "I bought it from a friend and I don't know the exact product name . . . "

    Toys like these aren't just casually passed along. I believe people dealing them should most probably know what they have in their possession.

    That’s the closest version I could find as well. And the colors are still very off. Surprised anyone would gamble more than 300 or 400 on this. I’m pretty convinced it’s fake with that description.

    It’s definitely a bootleg.

    The right foot not sitting flat kinda throws me off, too. This is probably the only Nag I’ve seen that didn’t have fully flat feet on a surface. And the paint only looks half finished from what this actual version looks like, not to mention the red lips are WAY red compared to the Kaiju Monster photo. What if, though, just what if, it was legitimate and some kind of test paint/hair? :lol:

    Yeah, the "auctions" aren't over so sue me if you lost out on buying a shitty custom.
    But W-T-F is up with the duplicate listings and and fucking custom shit lately?

    Pretty sure this is the proxy posting garbage getting discussed in the 'eBay Gripes' thread:

    http://www.skullbrain.org/bb/index.php?threads/ebay-gripes.54327/

    Basically the eBay sellers don't own the products listed on Japanese sites likes YJA/Mercari/etc but list proxy sales on eBay at inflated prices in the hopes someone in the states will bite. Then they buy the item in Japan at the lower price.

    I think this might actually be all unique sellers with proxy posts for the same fig on sale online in Japan.

    Came across this Mercari listing... seems to be the same specimen.

    https://www.mercari.com/jp/items/m25099742862/

    "I bought it on Mercari. Don't know what it is." (asks for 65,000yen) :lol:

    This was a recent MVH shop drop. Obviously sold out in seconds. No idea what the run size was but rare for eBay to hit this high outside Berserkers...

    pretty nuts.
    I mean, it is the last alien hunter dx rich plans to release.......
    I don't know, pretty crazy. But prices have gone pretty crazy during the pandemic. I have a feeling there will be a big drop in a year when life gets back to normal. If you check vvc the prices are waaaay beyond mandarake and ebay. And they're selling. If I can't score mvh from rich, I just can't afford it.
