    Beautiful photos @Beantime! They capture the texture so well.

    Gonna keep my usual gushing about details a little quieter to preserve some surprise for new owners. But there's a lot going on, hidden away in the whole package. One thing that strikes me is that the integration of different parts is really thoughtful. The arms, for example, are scarily thin at the joint, but that makes it feel more like a raggedy old toy that's just holding together. And you'll notice from the photos above that the anchor point for the bug arm's chain sits in the centre of a cluster of dots, like the middle-point of a star. Flashy toy that keeps the flash a bit hidden, blends it all in. Very happy to add it to the collection :)

    Wonderfully worded description as per usual on your side. Always enjoy hearing your thoughts and perspectives on things!

    There really is a ton of little hidden details with these guys..

    Would advise anyone who won Yankee to be careful with the paint on the nose. I noticed a small chip today and saw it on close inspection of my early photos as well, so I'm assuming it was fresh out of the bag. The nose paint seems to be a very thin coat. Luckily the paint and vinyl colours are both very light and blend a bit, so you won't notice easily in normal lighting.

    Believe that dog is a 100% new sculpt. Saw some photos from people who bought at the show, and the proportions are different to Elly. Fur texture is more raised and blocky as well; the arms actually remind me of Kumon.
