Once in a while, you get a notice on a toy release that really gets you amped. This one would be such a toy release. Several days ago, Mark Nagata from Max Toy Co sent a notice to his Fan Club Subcribers alerting us that he had not one, but two exclusive Gargamel Desuras to offer. The first was a clear purple with gold spray and the second was an un-painted clear purple Desura. I'm not kidding when I jumped in my chair at work and immediately sent back an email saying I would take both. The problem is that there were only 30 of the un-painted which I really, really, really wanted. Only 30 for like 80 members or something. I think I even sent another email and dropped a phone call to Mark with some lame bribe or begging or both!
It was the perfect storm: Desura is one of my favorite sculps, nothing is better than clear purple vinyl (except maybe clear blue) and there was a painted and un-painted version! I was in a panic! Long story short, I had to wait 2-3 anxious days before I got the invoice that I had won the member lottery and scored both! As you can see from the pics, these guys do not disappoint. The painted version turned out much better than the pics and the un-painted is just amazing too. Thanks Mark! I can hardly wait for your next toy. Cronic Maverasu sounds good! Clear Smogon sounds good!
