    that is an amazing piece, I have been looking for the regular edition black and silver, there is something about this mecha gojis that u particularly enduring. I think it has to do with the eyes. But the colors on this one is amazing!!!!!

    picked up a few new things the other day from mandarake. Been looking for a new Gabara for a while to replace the one that I sold a few years ago. Im pretty happy with this one.Hes got really good paint, and minimal wear on the face.

    Happy vintage mail day, at first I was a bit worried because the box was opened by a fish and wildlife inspector, I want to think that they thought there was some animal in the box, but I want to thank to the inspectors because he only opened and closed the box without damaging the figures.
    I have wanted a vintage Mechanic-Kong for a long time and for some reason or another I always let it pass, but a week ago I saw this monkey the photos were not very good but the price was reasonable so I decided to take the shot and I think I made one good decision, I am very happy with the figure and I also enjoyed cleaning it a lot, it was in good general condition but it had several marks made by transfer. Regarding the Bullmark Gander Midorigin the sale page only had a photo of the figure, but the description said; near excellent condition, that influenced me to encourage myself to buy it without asking for more information and they did not disappoint me, it was so careful that I did not have to clean it.
    I hope I have not bored you with so many explanations.

    In another box but with a day of difference, arrive this Ninja Arashi bootleg with straight hands, this one however came very dirty from the body and especially from the tunic it has already started its cleaning process, I hope to upload some photos of how it looks already after cleaning it.

    @fosa comun, @XVivaHateX thank you guys, I think I was lucky with that Gandar, the paint on the body looks like new, it is one of the few vintage toys that I have not had to clean it anything.You are right Jonathan the prices of those Mechanik kong have gone up a lot lately, I remember seeing one years ago for 9,000 ¥ in general it was very good shape, it had some scratches but it kept the heavy blue of the paint on most of the body, the only "bad" thing it´s that It had graffiti on the back, I imagine that was the child's name, but I always regretted not having take it at that time.

    Couple of new ones the other day. This marusan Miclas has a somewhat uncommon (at least from what ive seen) bright blue paint on his horns/forehead.

    Lucky find with this Peguila state side. Been looking for a decent one since I sold mine years ago. Such a cool design. Maybe my second favorite Ultra Q kaiju?

    Who's first favorite?

    Every angle you post of this tops the previous one. The paint (and wear) is just perfect. Appropriate, too, for conveying frozen cities and streaking across the sky in a trail of black smoke!

    I think garamon. Although in toy form kanegon is thought to beat. Thanks! Yeah I got lucky with this one. The paint on his face in particular is in really good shape.

    Lovely Ark! Interesting that your rhino guy has a divot on his throat in the center. My guy has that too! I always thought that it was a defect, but perhaps it's something in the original mold?

    Had a pretty stellar box day. Finally shipped the stuff that was building up from February. I had to use Yamato/Kuroneko. Was super expensive but very fast service. They hand off to UPS once it reaches the US.

    WOWEEE!!!! So many goodies there! I'm especially jelly over the Zazhan windyup :mrgreen: Beautiful Aboras, and I must find another Barom 1 giant :mrgreen:. The missile-firing Mecha is in great condition! Did it come with any missiles? That Marusan fish monster is nice too! Can you please tell me what his name is? Had no idea he was so big! :shock: Fab adoptions!

    hey thanks grace, yeah as was mentioned Ebireon. No the mecha G didnt come with any missiles. They have gotten so expensive I dont think I could swing one with them. Might try to track one of two down down the line.
