    Pretty colors! Pardon my ignorance, but who is that shrimp wearing flip flops (he looks good enough to eat with mayo herb dip), and that tiny black, almost, mothman like creature?

    He's Master of Giant Claw, by Mame Mayoshi, the same maker who did the excellent Maguro Senpai earlier in 2016. Edit: I'm a little disappointed that the Giant Claw has really flat colored flesh feet. I think he would have been served better if they continued the red/orange of the chitin like Maguro here had blue.

    The little guy is a Kaiju Boy by Elegab. You get a random one sometimes when you order all he offers during his monthly lotteries in a little lucky bag (usually there are 2 different ones). Apparently unlike The Destroyers and The Apaches which were offered in groups, the Kaiju Boys are a few different ones that you can only get like this or at festivals that Naritada-san attends. Edit: all these minis are finger puppets! :D Edit 2: apparently this little dude's name is Miira

    I have never seen this before, and now I really want one! I honestly had no idea that Grizlli sculpted too.

    Gorgeous man, they look like they were always meant to be together. :) Kaiju friends forever. Love that bright red paint with the white vinyl base just peeking though too, very nice.

    Agreed, nice score Patrick, going to very nice in your SB family. I still have dreams about some day stumbling across a Human Slayer by accident.

    Big thank you to a couple fellow skullbrainers for helping me to get my hands on a Cycloptopus. I've been a huge fan of KBB for years after seeing them live in '06 and have wanted one of their vinyl figures for quite some time. Thank you!

    Rei, my god, those shelves man!!! I have to restrain my myself from leaping bodily into this shitty screen trying to get at them. I see just oh so many fuzzy glories on that horizon. It's definitely I stop by to drop off a six-pack (or two) for a visit. Love it man. And extra thanks from me to JP for making such wonderful guys find their way into your family.

    Excellent pickups, Reigun! That Triceratops is a longtime goofy favorite. I was happy to see that it was being rereleased.

    ^^^It's a great introductory book. Some of those toys are from Brian Flynn's collection! Beautiful photos too.

    Elegab Bargain Day grabs came in (very quickly, he just mailed them on monday!)

    Not pictured is the brown OIL SHOCK I purchased as well because that was a gift for my co-worker's son Jack and I passed it on already. I'm especially stoked on the red Meteorg as apparently Naritada San made some as a limited run for the upcoming DustCatcher Magazine and that hasn't come out yet.

    Nice!! You picked out the exact same ones I did - except swap your painted Dancheera for a blank green one ;)

    So cute. Astro worked hi way into my heart so long ago, I cannot resist smiling like a kid at anything with him. A wonderful new robot buddy, Rei.
