Secret Base Devilman, Pushead Cocobat version.
Three new colors added!
I think my iPhone4 is quickly giving up the ghost. I haven’t been able to take a non-blurry photo with it in for a few months now, and this is no exception. Got the Wingshits in yesterday and this fella above is about as good as it gets without breaking out the better camera. His green counterpart came out even blurrier. Such is life.
I’m also branding my images directly now, blurry though they are, since someone on eBay is using them on iPhone cases now. Annoying, but what can you do.
Just got this gentleman in the mail the other day. Lately I’ve been just terrible at taking pictures, so you can’t really get the full effect of the marble color combo, but I really dig it.
oh ryse frahm de blaastbeet trahjedee aht seeeeea ze ghreyt skullORM!
Released 30th November.
Secret Base, Japan.
Dark blue & light violet.
Another NYCC is in the books.
It was another crazy round trip that left me happily exhausted, bookending my convention experience with no sleep and two of the busiest shifts I’ve ever had at work. But when I finally met up with Phil, Pat, Tony, Michael, Ed and the rest of the Standup Guys it was totally worth it. One of the fun things about any sort of collecting subculture is the people who share your passion and I’m pretty lucky to be surrounded by the nerds that I am. I was even able to bring Julia with me to share the day with me, get her first vinyl toy and introduce her to some of the best folks I know.
It was great catching up with Chris and Pus, meeting our overseas buddies, meeting Paulie from Septic Death (who I’ve been at APP with multiple times it seems, but never knew he was he!) and reveling in a few hours of geekiness. I picked up a few new toys, took pictures of a few others (Devilman Finkshit?) and still marveled at how much people seem to like the NAG.
I haven’t had a chance to take pictures of any of the toys I bought, but here are a few fun ones from the show. Glitter Nagball (didn’t buy) and SkullOrm (did buy). Pus, Julia and I. Mecha-ju thingie (didn’t buy)
I’ll update soon with the haul.
Thanks again Pus, Chris, and the Standup Guys for a hell of a year!
The yellow Damaged XXX Shifter arrived recently to keep the blue SDCC one company.
When I was young, I’d always buy Metallica 45s for the Pushead cover art; never owned a record player and didn’t really listen to the band but I’d always keep my eyes out for a new single.
That’s still the case. Not really a fan of the music, but damned glad that they keep making fun Pushead stuff.
