    I think Takepico x One Up creations are good enough for their own thread. Show us what you got!

    Some of my favorites in my collection. Yeah, I know. I need to open them.

    I don't gots any, but that first pic makes a fine argument for getting in on the getting.

    Can't say I 'get' the Nagata sprays, meself, but you've got 'em, so clearly they were worth gotting for some.

    Looking forward to further aquarium study, grabber guys and grabber gals.

    Love the Koijarus and Keronga, despite not having any. It's on my eventual "to buy" list.
    Was really hoping to nab the Keronga version that Yamomark painted, but I didn't even get to see them on sale. Apparently they were gone in the blink of an eye.

    Mark's color choices on that blue sofubi works really well. I like the under belly the best as he sprayed it with a glittery shimmer Monster Kolor paint.

    Kamengo, newest sculpt released June 30 from One Up of course. Love the little standing turtle.

    Kamengo is a far and away favourite for me. The details are phenomenal. I really want to see some traditionally painted versions of him. I just love turtles.

    I think I'm going to have to grab one of this fish finally. I've seen them come and go but now that I have more room, a new fish based shelf is in order. And the new turtle is wonderful. Cool thread!

    Yes, this and lots of other turtle/tortoise species...eastern box turtle, cherry foot tortoise, maybe a diamondback. I'm going to need a lot of these.

    Can't wait for an "earthy" coloring on that new turtle sculpt.

    @chimmychazz, Good to see him out and hopping around a natural environment. He needs a friend like a fish or turtle. ;)

    This is the first version of Koijarus, and I think, the first toy produced under the TakePico banner:

    [​IMG]

    I was complete on the Koijarus releases up to a certain point, but I think they started to make weird color schemes and reissue old color schemes, so it became too hard to keep track. I still wouldn't mind that Boys' Day 3-pack.

    Koijarus seemed really creative to me, but the others just look like animals standing on their hind legs... :oops:

    Kay, very nice customs by both Obsessed Panda and Topheroy. May we see better pictures of the first one?

    So far I am enjoy all three releases. But my favorite so far is Koijarus. But that turtle is not far behind in the race of over taking Coijyarus as my favorite. The Koijarusu goes really well with the Max Toy x Konatsu Kaiju Negora.

    Really looking forward to the first painted kamengo, been eyeing these for a while and they are all great.
    Maybe I am miss remembering but is there also a cyborg bear or was that not associated with these?

    The cyborg bear Kumabogu technically isn't Takepico. It's under the Pico Pico brand name only. Atsushi Tomura-san of Pico Pico helps with the design/sculpting for Takepico brand which is owned by One Up.

    I like that Keronga. It's kinda weird they only paint one hand (paw?), though.
