    My fucking head hurts.
    I've been at this for way too long. :lol:
    Missing one part, or confused about one part.

    Ok, with the help of Jeff, here's what I got based per line on the back of the skull:

    :LEARNALIG
    HTBYDEFININA
    SHADOW:OCSGBES:
    HASADHU
    :FKSM:SD:TKO:JP:
    *USUGROW:HASADHU*

    That translates to:
    Learn A Light By Defining A Shadow

    OCSGBES (this makes no sense...)

    HASADHU

    FKSM = Fukushima
    SD = Sendai
    TKO = Tokyo
    JP = Japan

    I just could not resist! :D
    I think the white fits Usugrow's style even more than the clear black!
    From the web page it sounds like there might be some impurities though . . . we will see!

    I am so pumped on my mailman today. Less than a week after ordering it too, I got these gems in the mail:

    So stoked on the Hasadhu Shingon skull, but just as stoked on my first 1:1 SB skull! Despite the junky iPhone pics, it's a really nice white, like in the first pic.

    Now i just need to finish cleaning my house and redoing toy shelves to make a proper place for these guys.

    If you look in this pic, you can see some really tiny alternate color specs in the right side (his right) of the jaw and at the very front tip of the jaw, near where the highlight/reflection is. Both are a light gray, maybe 1mm around at best. However, the surface is super smooth all over, no bubbles, no other problems that I could find. Really a damn cool piece in person!

    And thanks! It was my first full-bore order from SB (other than the silver World Power Rebel Ink), and I kinda went nuts . . .

    By the way..where is the Usugrow statue?

    Are there production issues? It seems like at least a year plus and no updates.

    the white with silver print was sold during golden week a couple of years back.
    then a few was sold guerilla style last year when SB cleared their backoffice and found the pieces.
