    not too hyped about the price, but i like it. if it falls in line with Utsugiyo and isnt release after release then it is worth it. the tsunami ish? top of the head with the boat is what got me.

    plus... the facial expression isnt that bad. just his vinegar strokes.

    I am absolutely baffled! I don't think a shitty piece of vinyl has ever annoyed me this much..

    Commenting "sent" isn't part of the entry process but 60 people felt the need to post that on the original instagram post.. that's a potential 60 x $500 (not counting the people who just reposted and entered without needlessly commenting "sent"). Are people really that desperate to get the new hyped toy without exercising personal judgement and any sense of good taste?

    Fuck this toy - it's a piece of shit resin looking rip-off trying to cash in on a scene that's becoming more and more lost in crappy toys like this.

    The biggest problem for me is all these reposting lotteries. I understand if you're just getting started and want to give away something for free, but you're seriously going to have me act as apart of your advertising team just for a chance to spend hundreds of dollars on a piece of plastic you shit out?

    This. I have no strong opinions about the toy itself, its certainly not the worst thing I've seen recently. It looks like the maker is trying far too hard in a self conscious way and it reminds me of a designer/art toy, not proper sofubi. If somebody had told me it was Funko I would've believed them.

    I totally agree, the paint app is bloody awful. It loks like someone has gone at it with old Humbrol and their dad's airfix brush.

    How the fuck does a first time maker with no history, have the confidence to price that thing at $500 right off the bat? Its a weird time for toy collecting isn't it, who are these idiots spaffing shit tons of money?

    It's the same people spending that much on an article of clothing. It's gonna be pretty funny to see how this all plays out when the next financial happens. I'd love to see the faces on some of these peoples faces when daddys business goes under, and they realize they spent thousands on a few pieces of plastisol.

    As fun a thought as that is, it's rarely ever the rich who get ruined by shit like that. Mostly just the rest of us ;)

    I'm with you Glen, the more I look at this toy the angrier I get. Look at the fucking thing, it's a cheap Utsugio rip off, from the overdone doofus expression on the face to the musician omake. they just switched the volacano for a wave and shortened the neck. Not to mention their musician omake looks like a terrible sculpture you'd see on a pack of colored fimo clay.

    Funny how 99% of the entries seem to be Chinese. There's a large chunk of collectors there who only seem to care about how much a toy costs. There's already rumors circulating that this is a Chinese maker trying to look Japanese. And the worst part with this scene, is the idea of this Japanese pedigree. You see guys coming like Ilysnapse (not anything against him, because his toy is actually awesome) but it checks the boxes, Japanese, tattoo artist, and you know it's going to be hyped. Now we have to deal with people faking their backgrounds and locations trying to create hype. What's next, people who never tattooed just posting all the flash they have designed.

    Today’s $120 piece of shit, is tommorrow’s Nag.

    I’m just waiting for my Ninjalien investments to mature, so I can retire.

    They're all in a big box in one of Mandarake's warehouses waiting for the right time.

    It's not always the actual product, it's just the lack of creativity. primates: check, 4 eyes: check, belly face: check, grotesque: check. next there will be a two-head version down the road--my guess. I remember Killer J feeling like this. Just a dart board with trendy ideas on it. I mean, I get borrowing if it's truly inspired, but toy makers just doing this... feels so cash-grabby. Do what you like...but ...le sigh from a collector/appreciator standpoint.

    Even beyond the product and lack of creativity is the rinse and repeat sales cycle . . . Instagram lottery :check, retarded pricing: check, no name or credibility: check.
