    A bunch of the little guys, particularly the rockbat, are making me just a tiny bit envious right now; I didn't know that the rockbat and the car robot guy were in this series, nice scores!

    This post is five years old but I am having fun comparing it against my new 450 Series King Godoras:

    Instead of scanning the original toy or recasting it to create this new figure, it was resculpted from scratch. I'm really amazed at how well the sculptor replicated the original toy.

    For sure. He replicated it so well I though it was just a re-issue when I first saw the teasers. If you see another one available let me know. Im way more interested knowing its all new and a different size.

    This new toy is a 30cm tall "450 Series" figure. It is based on the original 40cm toy, not the 50cm one. We had less than 10 of them and they sold out on the first day at Five Points Fest. He will definitely be making more.

    Picked up this weird hodgepodge guy recently, don't recall ever seeing another one. I would love to know what the hands look like so I can spend the rest of my life searching for them...

    Great paint on that one. Most of the ones I've seen are mostly unpainted yellow vinyl.

    (And I'm sure that Kaminaga-san would be happy that "Godoras" has caught on for that guy.)

    Got a few things in the other day. Finally scored a vintage garamon after a decade plus of wanting one.

    I wonder what it is about these vintage figures that makes them so great? Is it the fact that they're imperfect and often somewhat impressionistic compared to the modern mass produced figs? That they seem to have a life and vision that extends beyond the original work instead of just being a precise recreation?
