    Don't Worry, Be Earthly.
    New Earthly vinyl toy from LeeeeeeToy. Comes with male and female head attachments. A leaf or flower that pegs into the crotch area. The arms articulate just below the shoulder muscle. All packaged in a pretty cool graphic box. One of the most fun toys I have gotten in a while.

    I wonder how it came to be that pink / yellow / brown became the Booska colors, IIRC Booska only ever appeared in black & white!

    He's about 15". This or the blue with blue spots was a long time want for me. If I ever score a biliken plush Booska, then I'd go nuts. ...but I'm very happy with my collection as it is now. I was hoping 2016 was going to bring a bunch of new Booska sculpts.

    Thanks for the update Vombie! :) He's a handsome guy, to be sure. Good thing you opted for the heavy duty case! :D Congrats on a wonderful collection with a high cuteness factor.

    Tasty mushroom, too. Did Marmfolk do the spritz, or was it one of them ruiners?

    Reportedly spritz is courtesy of Skullbrain "ruiner" Lee Porter.

    As requested. here's a glowie shot of the chunky US Toys Kanegon that came Saturday.

    This is about the best shot I could get -- My photo skills could most generously be described as 'below average.'

    By the way, while taking the pic, I noticed for the first time this odd rectangular 'dent' in the Kanegon's chest. It certainly looks to be something "in the mold," i.e. not damage, but I don't recall seeing any similar divots on other pieces, and I can't think of any reason for this one. It almost makes me want to print out a tiny red/white "HELLO MY NAME IS Kanegon" sticker for that location ...

    Anyone know what this is from, or for? Anyone else with a large US Toys Kanegon who would check and see if it's in all of them, or just a flaw in this one?

    I have noticed that on other figures. Is it the money counter readout perhaps?

    Loving that glowy shot man. He is such a wondrous beast. A definite excellent cornerstone for any collection.

    As for the dent, it is definitely intentional, though what it is supposed to be on the 'little' fella I am not sure exactly (coin counter does sound pretty intriguing :razz:, it does appear to be some type of meter/numbering). But it is accurate to the actual costume, as you can see in these pics just about his left breast:



    And they made it even larger/brighter on his Chibira-kun iteration of the costume:

    [​IMG]

    You can also see it in this scan from one of the kaiju costume photos from a sonosheet (thumbs up to astromonster for the share), where I think it does say what it is maybe, but can't read it myself.



    As Rei mentioned, quite a few other toys have it as well - probably those that haven't been over cutified (which is pretty normal for ol' Kanny) - even going back to the OG Marusan/Bullmark which had it as a little crown/pocket. Sometimes it is coloured in, others just a rectangle or dent; it is quite noticeable in the NH versions you can see here:
    viewtopic.php?f=3&p=771231

    EDIT: I just found this pic of a close-up of one of the figures, and it does seem to confirm that, yes, it is indeed a coin counter!! Well, what do you know. :) Excellent guess there man! Wow, those must have been some tasty Yen.

    Oh Rei! I am so very jealous of that Cyclops. What a great thing to snag on here. As a lifetime Harryhausen fan, there is so much right about that toy. Fantastic. Excellent grabs on both of those fellas.

    I'm with Ultra. That Billiken kit(which I embarrassingly barely learned about) is fantastic. Love how he's seemingly looking down to the Krampus!

    ^ Lucky Rei... Please, does Cyclops have an articulated jaw?
