    The prices jumped so crazily high. Moon Knight Alpha were $100 to $120 on Manda, then seemingly overnight they jumped to $250+. And the Golems, holy shit. Those prices exploded to nearly $1K in some cases, so these $500 aren’t the worst. I’ve paid $500 for a one off once, and $400 for another. It’s not deadening to me, but also not the most comfortable. They were/are worth it to me! Just don’t think I could run it on these TE sculpts!

    More mixed parts Golems from the past week.. all turning up at the Complex store. I guess Target Earth's workshop is around the area?

    The Complex location is in Akihabara, with the vintage and modern sofubi on the seventh and eighth floors. I’ve never been privy to Sato - San’s location or stay, so Tokyo could very much be a possibility. A couple more Crater Man blanks were up, too.

    Here’s to hoping I manage more Target Earth in 2020! One of the few makers I personally still deem heavily worth searching for and coveting in today’s collecting climate. Most of these are re - shot, but a couple have been given the Infinity Glass Style Studio Shot treatment for the first time.

    Sir, your photos have already made me spend far too much money.

    Just saw a ¥12,000 still bagged and headered OG blue Bagun on Mandarake, and I sincerely hope someone here was able to snag that!!!

    I actually thought about this and was turning it around in my mind for about 40mins or so, Robert. I was genuinely shocked that he did not get snagged up immediately. I have been after one for so many years, it takes me all the way back to the early days of collecting. It did not have the original artwork from Kajita-san (offered through special autograph session at SF46), but is still so remarkable to see still wrapped up like that. A real pleasure, from a great artist and excellent sculptor; really OG beauty which is lacking in today's 'market.'
