    Easily the best Gamerudon, in my opinion, only possibly bested by the silver toothed/eye version.

    Better lighting, colors, quality and editing process. Got to appreciate these two all over again.

    ^^ Always enjoy seeing that maroon one with the blue eyes. Very classy, the silver sprays bring the whole thing together.

    My old man used to have a Capri MkI in that same combo back in the day . . . maroon top, silver below the midline!

    He always thought it was 'classy' too! :lol:

    ^^ Hey, if you spray silver on anything cool it becomes instantly classy. I think about half of my Kumon collection utilises that technique ;)

    When is a Capri like a frog?
    When it's being toad.

    What's a difference between sheep and Capris?
    People don't get embarrassed being seen in sheep.

    What's a difference between a hedgehog and a Capri?
    The hedgehog has the pricks on the outside.

    What do you call a Capri with twin exhausts?
    A wheel barrow.

    Why do Capris have heated rear windows?
    To keep your hands warm when pushing them.

    What do you call an open top Capri?
    A skip.

    I wanted to share this with folks that may not have already heard.......

    Just about the best news that I ever read, so very happy Mr. Sato regained his health
    than anything else. New works will be a testament of determination and perseverance.

    I will post photos soon of the all new sculpt that I commissioned, no idea on time frame still involved and no, there will not be preorder. I hope to see many more works by Sato-san!

    So thrilled to know the Machine Gorilla and Parabola A will soon walk among us.


    LONG LIVE TARGET EARTH!!!!!!!

    This is the update from Mr. Sato:

    [Apology for update delay]

    I'm very sorry for everyone waiting.

    August 2019, we will be able to inform you of our progress with images.

    The disease has been cured and my physical condition has improved.

    I know that you can say "I'll say it after you", as soon as my physical strength is fully recovered, I am determined to concentrate on “soft vinyl development that only myself can do”. If you look back at the health situation, you will understand, our concept is nothing else. You will soon know we're almost there.. Please wait a little longer.

    We will send you the work that you have been waiting for.

    This is really great news to hear, thank you for sharing here John. I know many have been concerned about Sato-san's failing health for some time, it's really nice to have some positive change. I admire his dedication and obvious passion to continue on the TE projects.

    I look forward to see the photos of the toy you are working on at the moment.

    Dug out some of the "lost" TE prototype photos. Will try to post them all so this thread has the contents it deserves.

    I believe all these photos were taken by Mr. Sato and I am posting them only under the context of review. Please don't repost





    Unreleased Daikyo style Bagun Monster doll prototype and painted "cray mould" by Target Earth

    I love this version.

    Thanks for posting the old photos of the unproduced Bagun, and for the good news on Mr. Sato's health.

    Welcome.

    I have a strong feeling when new dolls are offered they will already be available like the Phantom of the Turkey, Ball eyes fish man etc.

    There is quite a bit of Target Earth on Manda right now, and all looks like one offs. Really hoping this is some type of indication Sato - San is back in full force! A few examples:

    @patrickvaz I was just as surprised as anyone else! Stoked you hopefully picked up that mixed parts! Prices are a bit rich for my blood, except the one off Crater Man I posted as a favorite from the bunch. It’s just great to see some new blood from TE! Fingers crossed you got to the mixed parts in time!!!

    That white black and blue paint is very interesting and uncharacteristic of TE. Lots of beauties there. I’m hoping the SB Gate Guard release is high on the list of priorities. I’m still missing that sculpt and still looking forward to checking it off the list.

    I’d love to get my hands on a Gate Guard. I’ve never even seen one in person before. I didn’t jump on the SB offered release for that, unfortunately. But it does look like a goddamn great toy. Hopefully we’ll be seein’ more general public releases and new sculpts soon!
