The Neo Eyezon Hawaii two-pack I painted with Mark Nagata using the Monster Kolor Hawaii set just went up for sale to the Max Toy Co Club members. I am really excited to see this project completed, and had a great time with it. Working with someone I respect and look up to was a blast, and I think both figures in the set came out really fantastic, and complement each other very well!
Grail time here… I got back to school yesterday, and today went to the mail room to track down an elusive score. Conspicuously absent from my Neo Eyezon shoot was this Tokyo Magazine exclusive release via Dream Rockets. This guy has an orange rub and green sprayed accents on GID vinyl, and was actually the first production GID release, which snuck under most people’s radars. The rub work admittedly is not amazing on this figure when compared to some of the Ream X Head, but the colors are great.
I also snapped a couple shots of the eclectic mix of vinyls that made it to school with me… there’s a few other toys here as well, but there’ll be time for that later.
EDIT: Added at the end is a shot of the three newest Neo Eyezons I received in the mail today. The two two-tone figures are the latest release in Japan, and the red with silver and green spray figure is actually one of two Christmas-themed figures painted by the legendary Goto-san himself. I hadn’t seen the Christmas one before, and was thrilled when I opened the box. I’m also looking forward to adding the Kikaida colored figure to my slowly growing Kikaida tribute color group.
I finally got around to taking a family shot of my Neo Eyezon collection so far. I have every regular release except one (a magazine exclusive in Japan that I am trying to track down), as well as the Max Toy Club Halloween figure and two show-exclusive Mark Nagata handpaints. I cannot wait to see what new Neo Eyezons show up this year!
Snapped some pics of my November haul, and was messing around with the figures that came back to school with me after Thanksgiving.
Elegab Puppet Seijin, Designer Con Evil Bat, GID unpainted Chaos Beast, Unpainted black proto Steven the Bat, Ikarawa Bullmark Legends Gabora, Real x Head mini GID Gatchigon, and “Halloween” Neo Eyezon painted by Mark Nagata on GID vinyl. Also, a pic of my new M1GO pink unpainted Greenmons keeping me company while I slog through a Bio Lab report.
Vinyl figures conquer the shelves! Phil Reed’s (from Battlegrip.com) gonna hate this update… he’s currently trying to keep himself from falling off the vinyl cliff, and here I am pushing just about every robot toy I own out of the way for more vinyl! I’ve got standard-sized Kaiju up the wazoo… I’ve got a separate space for unpainted M1 Kaiju, sort of as holding area for them, and then a Max Toy Co shelf, with more Neo Eyezons on the way, and an ‘everything else’ standard-sized shelf. On the bottom is the Real X Head shelf… I’ve been having alot of fun seeing all the different colorways out there… especially in the Chaos family. Of note are the two Mark Nagata handpaints, Toybot Studios Rock and Roll Kemur Seijin, the SDCC Goto-san painted Drazoran, M1 Lucky Bag Red Ultraman, and the awesome Superfest Kikaida paint-scheme Chaos Adult.
Edit: threw a fight pic on the end.
