    "Hey, Bear."
    "Mm?"
    "Once this last one's done, what'll you do?"
    "What?"
    "You know man, what's your plan?"
    "Never much had one. City makes me nervous, sometimes I want to throw it all out and go back to the woods."
    "Sounds peaceful."
    "Then I remember a little more and decide I've seen enough woods for a lifetime. Screw it all. You?"
    "Remember that room we used to go after the shows, get good and drunk before we had to do it all again? White Rabbit? I'm gonna start a place like that, low-key but a little classy, dreamy. Dark wood bar, Bootsy Collins on the speakers."
    "Huh. You think you could fit Johnny Cash in there too?"
    "There's a thought."

    Latest lotto has been drawn. Congrats to the winners. Another Moondog. I don’t know what Utsugiyo’s M.O. is. Some sculpts released in the past I assumed were retired due to time. Hopefully there’ll be more releases of previous sculpts collectors missed out on.

    Grats to winners!

    Personally I'd love to see a new sculpt for the 2020 release, but if we are talking about previously released sculpts, Dogura is one of my favorite toys of all time.

    This one's a looker. Putting it in a spoiler tag for now so people who have it coming can enjoy it fresh, if they so choose. Utterly bonkers, wild, head-spinning kind of paint. There's too much going on for my phone camera to get it all, especially at night, but all that metallic paint and glitter is so well blended and layered that it doesn't look at all out of place. Anyway, here's my cover shot for the new Moonpooch.

    Beautiful. How big is this compared to other toys?

    About 3.5" tall from the feet to the top of the head, 6" from the front of the head to the tail. You can see it's not actually much shorter at the head than Dehara's Tosa Kenta, but the form is a lot more slight. If not for that paint you could stick it in a jacket pocket pretty easily.

    Wow, looks great. Jealous. I've been in a bit of a dry spell for toy lotteries. Hopefully that changes soon.

    @taviq I hope one skates your way at a reasonable price. The run size on them was pretty huge (63), and at least a few have landed with western collectors, which should make it easier.

    @phantomfauna I felt the whole underside of the toy is kind of its own thing, with the pearl vinyl bordered by the purple paint of the body, the rainbow tail sprays and a gold dick in the middle of it :lol: almost a different palette to the rest of the toy.

    Popped off the dog's head and found a surprise. Spoiler tag to keep it intact for anyone who wants to give it a shot. Shout out Mark Chou (toytrex412 on Instagram) for pointing me to this.

    For the record, it's actually very easy to get the head back on without damage if you're careful. The design of the joint prevents the head from touching the rough surface of the body and rubbing paint, on top of giving Moondog a more seamless look.

    Would have never guess the vinyl color. Makes me wonder if he has 100 of them pulled and just slowly leaking them out with different releases over time.

    I like that theory. But I think you can make out the plain white vinyl on the belly and bottoms of the feet, under a coat of glitter. I did think he was using a pearl base, and not a plain white, though. Assume those areas are different on other releases, unless he's just painted all that to give the impression of a different base. 4D chess!

    So it's actually white and the rest..painted? Pretty impressive.

    So the glitter was sprinkled on the vinyl and clear coated on? The flakes look way to large to be part of the paint itself (with this having a white vinyl base).. you should try rubbing it on carpet really fast over and over again to see if the glitter comes off! ;)
