    The vinyl is weird.
    The head, arms and legs are squishy.
    The vinyl for the body is hard.

    So it looks like there's at least 4-5 versions of the Vintage Uchu-Genjin (Rokuron).

    1. Brown vinyl w/ Brown spray & Green face (Left in Pic from CKA)
    2. Brown vinyl w/ Brown spray & Pale face (Right in Pic from CKA)

    I don't believe the Pale face is a faded Green face as previously thought.
    If someone is 100% sure that it is, please let me know.
    Here's a closeup of my Pale face Uchu-Genjin.

    3. Red vinyl w/ Brown spray & Green face (Josh's)
    Gargamel's Rokuron looking pretty sweet too.
    Loving the vintage color tribute.

    4. Red vinyl w/ Brown spray (Pic from Auction)

    5. Red vinyl w/ Brown spray & Gold highlights w/ Pink lips (Mine)
    [​IMG]

    Here's a closeup of the Gold highlights & Pink lips.
    [​IMG]

    I'm not too sure if the Red vinyl version w/o Gold highlights is just because it faded away or not.
    If someone is 100% sure, please let me know.
    But based on these pics, the one w/o Gold is also missing Pink lips as the one above. (Pics from Auction)

    Anyways, sorry for the long post w/ so many pictures.
    Here's one more! My two Uchu-Genjins.

    Those are just a sight to behold. They remind me of some ancient hand-carved wooden artifact. Just beautiful!

    Ah, congrats on the score.
    I'm also curious as why this was listed twice.

    I feel better that some one on the board got it. I was so pissed when I didn't make it home for this.

    Saw one of these for auctions a few weeks back, was this the one that sold or were there two separate auctions? Also you guys that actually make loot need to invest in a phone with net access, you never need to worry about losing then. I have an itouch and have won some items using that (only at my home base though, if I could afford iphone full service I would)
