Had been abroad for half a year and got to open 6 months worth of packages.
Nice mail day
Glad you receive all these toys.
Hope you enjoy your cadaver twins dude!
B & B, grail style. Thanks, J!
Wow. I just don't even know. WOW.
Congratulations are well and truly in order on that batch of arrivals. Lovely toys all; well played, sir. And you know where I am coming from on that. But, unless my monitor's colours are playing tricks on me, you've been hiding the secret identity in there David.
Is that a Buta Astro Boy up in this?
Jess. A rare sighting indeed. Well-spotted James.
Secret identity? Do you mean this guy?
And it's not Mighty Atom himself, James, but certainly a close relative!
While I have seen various colours schemes on both characters (typically, actually, I think they are done the same colour in simultaneous appearances - whereas the OG manga is black and white it is anybody's guess), I think that the Buta version for the figures specifically has the blue belt for Astro, and the green for his cousin Cobalt. Making this an actual Astro (though that is going from the belt shown in the pics). But the more clear giveaway is the head points.
For reference, I am going with the 'denoted' names on the Buta flyer, which seem to show this (if I am reading it right):
i.e. Cobalt on the left (コバルト), [Mighty] Atom on the right (アトム)
I am just using this for lack of any other guide. As I don't think the individual headers for the toys denote the specific character for each packaging, I am not sure what other 'official' resource to go by, but would welcome clarification if anyone has it on these fellas.
Not that I ever claim to know what's what, and I would really give my eye teeth for either.
Yes - Cobalt left, Atom right:
And righty's got the green belt!
Well I always thought that the blue looked lighter than the green, generally, and it was hard to tell from those tiny snaps which was which for sure, but does seem to be that way in the enlarged versions (though there is more contrast with the background).
The simple answer is, if you wouldn't just tease us and would show us the whole shot or his head at least, all questions would be answered.
FINE~spoil my fun...
Got one hell of a box out of Arizona today --- Six toys direct from the actual wantie list swept off in one go!

my most recent packages
^ Love that red Elegab, Ben....makes me wish I had entered that lottery
With thanks to Jason (mildew180) for the sweet deal
Thanks for sharing
both Bukimindar and Sunguts large pine mushroom's are pretty fun : )
much more amazing in person than on screen. It's making me start to reconsider my monochromatic vision.
After 10 years of enbagitude...
Here's looking at you, B.
Buta ButaNoHana Corythosaurus Placerias Titanis Dino Dinos Dinosaur Flesh
They are gasping for air after being sealed off for a decade. Congratulations, Derek!
Since iv'e never held one of those Buta dinos, can anyone tell me if they are squishy? The materials consistency gives me the idea they should be squishy.
Buta ButaNoHana dino dinosaur Giganotosaurus
Not all of them but D's awesome pic above proves some are very much so
Glad they arrived safely David! Annnnd...right in the dirt..
Wow, loving those Butas even more. Going to need a set to go with Rampage dinos.
This is a good question though, are all the flesh colored dinos squishy? And is flesh the only squishy version? I know pink, cream, green, and light blue aren't squishy.
I always assumed the blank pink are squishy, I should have jumped on the set someone had here for sale weeks ago.
