    No problem. It's just a guess mind you, not saying it was their intent but sometimes newer japanese companies pay homage to the older companies in subtle indirect ways. Zollmen has in the past done this so....

    Right on. I absolutely love Zollmen, I assumed that Exohead sculpted these but he informed he it was Kasutori X Zollmen. Anyone know anything about "Kasutori" ? Is that an artist or company? All I know is I love love love my Zofbies! 8) :D :D :)

    ^^ You didn't like the new Re Burstron? The colors pop, in my opinion, and its the best version. After comparing to the Burstron, I think that Zollmen got lazy and just added that head on the already sculpted body. I would prefer if it had its own sculpted creepy body rather than that of a dino but either way its cool.

    ^^
    Jun/exohead and zollmen are some of the most talented sculptors and creators out there. Everything is meticulously planned and so I doubt 'they' were just being lazy'.

    ^^ I agree of course they are amazing at sculpting. I just don't get using the same body with an alternate head. If the other one didn't exist then this crazy ghoul head on a dinosaur body would just be a wacky creation. With Burstron already a thing, it seemed lazy because time wasn't taken to create a separate body. I tend to not like mash ups.

    I personally much prefer the Burstron over the Re-burstron and the Fancy toys dont do much for me either. I absolutely love Zollmen though, Just not those toys.

    No no no. You are all wrong. Reburstron is the height of creative genius. It's easily Zollmens best toy. I've always imagined it as a very bizarre experiment by the maddest of mad scientists.

    Wait what? Did I miss something? I miss Garimpo Zollmen days. Was so much easier to keep up. That Omo site is the worst for info.

    EDIT: OK got it thanks SB

    Toy Tokyo released a Takemi yesterday.

    This place used to be where people would share information. It's pretty funny how it is now. Or not.

    UMmmmm.... :lol: ..Seen the medicom anraku thread. Sometimes it's not about secrecy but more of a laziness thing.

    It is sad how little actual toy talk happens on here.
    Also, no one seems to get excited for anything anymore . . .
    (and if, it is seldom about actual Japanese toys . . . )

    Maybe not publicly? I've certainly gotten very hype-conscious, so that if I love something I don't feel comfortable gushing about it and inadvertantly driving prices up... Open runs like Anraku/Medicom are the exception.

    No one gets excited in public anymore (stop chuckling, you know what I mean) because as the article posted by Moog in the Nag thread goes to show, there have always been opportunists lurking to take advantage of "true collectors". Even if I manage to get a toy I'm excited about for myself, gushing about it might diminish other people's chances of getting it/subsequent runs for a fair price/at all. Obviously the situation hasn't gotten better in recent years with all those pesky kids crossing over from KR, where flipping is accepted and often even lauded, to Kaijooz. That being said, I find it hilariously ironic that someone just posted a toy that's not even been mentioned here once as trade bait for HxS, because that's how I found out that's the new hawt shit!

    I'm definitely excited about this, and since it's still available almost a week after being released I even feel comfortable posting a pic now:
