    I've been wondering since the onset of home 3D printers, why don't skilled, or rather more artistically capable fans or collectors create matching diorama like background for their favourite character toys? Probably not cheap, but getting cheaper, no? Or would there be trade mark issues too?

    Really nice setup. Congrats!

    This might be the best thing ive picked up this year. I think Nauts might have perfected the stylized matango sculp, (even more so than the M1 which is a classic).

    My second-favorite Matango. Brown is a great color for this.

    I don't knoooow...(¬‿¬)

    As soon as I saw this version, I just felt like they owe a LOT to Toygraph's Matango (everyone playing along: take shot for each time SpectralNight mentions TG Matangos). The stylization on Naut's cap is almost an exact match to the old Toygraph release. So much so, I actually had to check and verify it wasn't recasted from that TG mold! Same with the overall feel and stylistic approach to detail, Naut's just made the body a bit stockier. I also love that Toygraph got the mold cut hidden under the cap, so that the neck and body are all a single piece (probably why their body is more narrow than most other Matangos).

    That being said, this is still a monumentally cool figure! Not knocking it at all. Taking inspirations from Toygraph is a good move. IMO Naut's version is still superior to the Marmit and Passion Tank Matangos. Though, the M1Go version almost feels like a whole different thing to me? Like those M1s are perfect for what they are trying to be.

    Does anyone else know what I'm saying, or am I over the deep end?

    yea I see what you’re saying about the toygraph, especially the head. To be fair though they are both pulling from the same source. The toygraph is killer, would love to get that brown one. I do agree about the M1 being it’s own thing, especially since it was made in the late 90s .

    They are mostly known for their storyboard godzilla (https://www.kaijubattle.net/godzill...yboard-version-sofubi-wonder-festival-figures) . They came out with this matango sculpt earlier this year in collaboration with artist Rockin Jelly Bean. Then later released this color on their own. Their store is here (https://yamakichiya.com/) . I think "Geek Life" might be the same company.

    Really glad you scored that @ungawa222, and it sure is fantastic. Those light blue claws are the icing on the cake, for me.

    Great score! I’ve been hoping to find one of these beauties someday too! Such a great face . Hope to track down one of the yellow vinyl versions in the future.

    ^^ I have that colorway of Wanda. I've always enjoyed the semi-translucent green vinyl. Its quite unusual ...

    Right?! And I think that translucence owes completely to it being such a thin pour. One of the thinnest pours of any vinyl this size I've ever had in hand. Weight-wise and even in the way the joints feel when turning, feels more like a blowmold than soft vinyl. Not a detractor for me, still an excellent toy, but I will be a bit more careful with this guy than others in the menagerie...

    Now you mention it, I think you have something. It is very light and thinner than most. But, the quality is top notch, and those different metallic sprays really bring out the base colour and textures too.

    In light of the great news that I was able to secure the new two headed Skull Kun, I also recently got both of these recent standard Skull Kun in the mail. Doesn’t look like there even is one on the left, but it’s the half matte/half gloss black, and the right is the Boo Berry tribute. All three shirts were picked up in Japan over the years, I just thought they’d back a fun layout.
