    Hoping to have it in hand within the next week or so. I'll definitely be taking detailed photos of this piece as it's just too EFFING cool.

    EDIT: Updated with new photo link.

    Probably my last toy for a while, a Zollmen Zudon. Also just got this Arp 2600 it's standing on, which is why I don't have any more money for soft vinyl.

    Happy to add this little clear blue Gary to the collection. From the Ultraman DNA Genealogy show at the Gallery AaMo this month in Tokyo.

    Nothing spectacular mail day, but since I saw this Matango GID for the first time I was spellbound by the paint job.

    Some of the most modern-looking of all the vintage sculpts I’ve seen. These have a fun paint effect that I love to see, where the sprays were applied from a top-down angle. You get a fun kind of gradient optical illusion if you turn it to look at the bottom of the ruffles. I used to have a Sea Gool with a similar effect. Thanks @Mark K !

    Despite these all being phenomenal, I gotta say, my friend in Hong Kong entering and subsequently winning the Superman Toys lotto to help me is probably one of my biggest toy wins, ever.

    @Mr. Humphreys Oh, of course! 19 refers to how many of this particular sculpt I have now, and not the name of the beast, which is Krono! It’s a biggins, though! About 10” tall from the feet to the horn, and then 8 1/2” wide between the arms!

    @Mr. Humphreys Thank you for the kind words, Grace!!! :mrgreen: I definitely wanted to get a more fall - ish theme goin’ with the vinyl base and these paints! Though the leaves that fall around my area aren’t quite as autumn as what you’d find on the East Coast! :oops: I’ll eventually get a whole collection shot up. There’s “archival” type photos of the Krono I own in the Secretoy thread, on the 14th page, along with the Cinema Monster(I have 58 of those...:shock:).

    Found your photos in the Secretoy thread! :D The Krono on the beach against the surf is super nice! I do think those Cinema Monsters are interesting to look at. I always have to do a double take when I look at the head features! :shock: The Rampage painted one is beautiful. Love the deep ombre maroon chocolatey tones, all dusted with gold :shock:. The PK painted one is also nice! Iridescent teal-gold-bronze-magenta, with pink just in the right places (not to mention GOLD hooves!). Those guys can paint, and have a good grasp on color, but your photos make them absolutely stunning Robert! :razz::razz::razz: Still waiting for you to publish a Kaiju coffee table book! :dam:

    @Mr. Humphreys Thanks so much, Grace!!! :o Admittedly, those photos on page 14 are super out of date, as far as what I’ve learned in both shooting and editing. I’ve gotta re - do ‘em all, but, uh...boy, is that gonna take a while. :lol: Joe’s collaborations with artists have been pretty fantastic, and Joe himself puts out some of my favorite paints to date!!! As far as the coffee table book, I believe I’m still on the project with Mondo to release a new sofubi/soft vinyl book! Just havin’ to wait and see when we can get started with the hopes of covid dyin’ down.
