    Very excited about this Return of Ultraman-themed drawing practice/sketchbook...

    ...which spotlights the infamous fight between Jack and...Keronia

    ...and ends with dreamy interpretations of some friends, (not the) least of which is a shorn Gyango!

    Help needed! I couldn't resist picking this up for a reasonable price. The seller didn't know where it came from, and didn't have anything else like it in stock.

    Hachibun Co Ltd. Among the plastic crab, turtle, and beetle (each containing an ancient chocolate egg under the shell) toys, there is an aircraft carrier and... a Gudon!

    I assume this is a pachi Gudon, but were there any known runs using solid plastic? This looks and shares the same weight with something like a Marx dinosaur. No markings that I can discern aside from the red mail box toy, which has a 日 stamped on the underside.

    My translating skills are limited!

    * update: legendary IGer #pachikaiju helped kickstart a search for more examples and figures from this series. I like the all-monster/dinosaur packages, but still happy about the aircraft carrier

    Was gonna put this in the regular thread, but was unsure if resin was allowed(even if this sculpt has been cast as soft vinyl numerous times).
    Me want more Honoo.

    When did they make resin Honoos?

    Leecifer has been making them with a friend by hand, I believe.
    They’re all one of a kind(some are a little similar but due to the nature of resin, always have variations). He just basically uses the Super 7 sculpt with no articulation.

    Cool (bilingual!) making-of book from the Keizo Murase-advised/designed Howl from Beyond the Fog Kickstarter campaign

    Too rich for my blood at the time and still would be for something like this, but I wish I could have funded the tier for the Nebula toy. It looks like only 6 were produced. 50cm, ¥50,000
