In my last box from Japan I got a bunch of Secret Base figs from a blowout sale on YJA. These three are some of the elusive Secreters, the best SB releases out there. Secreters are all Skullbrains, my favorite mold, and feature clear elements, pipecleaners, freehand sprays, and awesome homage color schemes. After the jump, enjoy some yummy unpainted vinyl.

Double cast clear pink over GID, clear head, freehand sprays on the outer head, and a light up feature. This guy does it all.
Secret Base is right up with Real X Head as one of the leading Japanese designer vinyl makers. Where RXH has been constantly moving forward and evolving with new sculpts in the same line, Secret Base has branched out greatly over the years, collaborating with all sorts of other artists from the music and tattoo scenes, none of which make much sense to me. Secret Base started with a cool line of fight figures that have rotated in and out of their main focus for a while now. When I saw this new Skullbee (the first SB fight figure sculpt) on the SB blog, however, I was sold. Soft glass-clear vinyl mixed with iridescent rainbow glitter and a classy color combination, along with a signature Secret Base logo print on the back all combined together to make a really interesting figure that looks great and feels great in hand! I have some extra plush guts from another Secret Base figure at home that I’m going to stuff inside this guy, but that is a tale for another day.
The first wave of Killer Culture E.killers is still available, so you should go check those out in the Store, but I wanted to share some photos of what new toys have been occupying my time lately: Henshin Cyborg! The dizzying array of different figures and accessories available, both modern and vintage, makes for some great characters and fun combinations!
