    well fuck me with a speeding meteorite...!!!

    I have a feeling this spacey glitter infused rose is gonna be an astronomical release...

    better set the controls before this one takes off to some hidden vortex at the end of the universe...!!!

    They're not freaking pokemon , Jesus! I guess I'll never understand this need to get every color of something. I like this one bit sense it's going to be another F5 madness release.

    Same for me. I try to get ONE version of toys I really like and I'm happy with it.
    So even if this RV is really great, the blue one I have, I love, and it's enough.

    That said, it's not because I'm hollier than thou. The fact is I spend way more on my main collection (graphic novels/comics/BD) on a weekly basis than my sanity can afford to follow.
    I have to be reasoning and rationalise somewhere :lol:

    99% of the time I'd agree with that. Complete-ism is madness, or can lead to it. However sometimes a sculpt speaks to you, or just continues to amuse you, or has something else about it that resonates in a way you can't put a finger on, which makes it fun to be on the completist hunt. The reason I'd like to get all V-Roses (at least the official releases) is that thus far, they look seriously good together on a shelf, I love the sculpt, and because of the Josh/Super7 origin. Your mileage may vary.

    This figure enjoys the blessing and curse of being very hot right now, beyond the usual bounds of the Skullbrain type of collector. So as everyone knows the flippers, short-timers, and KR folks are going to want one, making the completist impulse even more insane. Now where are my meds?

    The silver accents on the feet are really nice as well as the paint application on the head. I just have an aversion to clear..(overtime the yellowing can drive me nuts)

    Exactly. This is just such a clean sculpt and I love it in every color. The way my collection is set up, as well, is that every shelf is a different color and I like having same sculpts in different colors mixed in on those shelves and the Rose Vampires are a cheap, yet awesome way of achieving this. That and it's fun to go after rarer pieces that you like because it just feels so much better when you do actually find them. For me, this isn't really a completionist thing rather than I REALLY just love Rose Vampires and can't have enough of them in my life!

    I kinda wish they went with colors that weren't from the blue frost version. The picture make me think you can rub the paint off the blue one to reveal a sparkly underside.

    I'd like it more unpainted, but it's still a great figure for the collection.

    Nope. The last two are customs. One's by Dan (Dlux) and the other by Jess (Jryu).

    Jess actually sculpted petals to cover the front, roots to cover the body, took out all the thrones on the body, and added that skull on the top.

    Is this not out there yet? I think it's my favorite flavour of RV. Oh! and the green one.

    I really like this one. I actually don't own a VR yet, so this would be my first if I can get it.

    Very cool! I'd love to see a pic of the custom RB at the end.

    FYI - I knew it was a RV, I was just wondering what modifications had been done since there were obviously things coming out of it.

    Does anyone know what time this will actually be released tomorrow? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Thanks in advance!
