Funny you should ask, but no, it is the real deal.

Here is a B&W version of the Hirogrim Artwork for this project.

There were also Comic styled drawings made to fit in with the Denys Fisher artwork.



VxFcXx made a variety of Cyborg Oriented toys for short one show Runs. These were issued under the ever changing Moniker, Violent Funeral Creatures. They were produced in 2004 under one of those ever popular 48 hour Licenses from Takara.

There were three different Microman resin costumes produced.
Released in clear resin (in a Plastic bag)

Then issued in boxes made in white resin with a shot of paint applied.
(There is much paint detailing left to be done to make them accurate)


The biggest stumbling block for me being able to display this was that for most characters you need to purchase Microman figures for the suits. NOT micronaut. Picture BELLY BUTTONS:
The suits require an "Innie" and not an "OUTIE"
I could mess around with the Yellow micronaut, as I had an army of those, but I was not going to chop up my interchangables green figure, to remove his belly peg.
Sadly Purple costs more money then the interchanganles green figure
as it was issued in ONE SET and same goes for the Green micro/Acroyear 2 pack. I'v had these suits shelved for years!

If it had not been for out Clone666 selling me the Purple microman, my suit would still be packed in little ziplock baggies in it's box.

One day the Microman army will come my way and I can suit them up in
the clear suits, the Gargamel Muteron suit, the takara skeletons, the takara aliens , the chromized cocobat micro set, etc...

Copycat! Laughing

Guy, I really recommend you try the Tamiya transparent paints, provided you can get them there, which you probably can. You can convert a regular clear barefoot to purple or green much cheaper than getting the Founders or Birth of Acroyear sets and without all the surplus figures. I haven't bought the blue yet to try mixing a purple, but I bet it's work. I found a spare clear Time Traveller the other day who had yellowed a bit, and I converted him to a red custom. He looks cool and I've been meaning to post pics.

Damn nice, Guy. I'd love to snag any of these suits but Dokuro is the top draw.

Great pics Guy. If you have white resin that is painted you have the 3rd version. The first version is colored resin in boxes. The second version is bagged clear, and the 3rd release was a re-release of the first, but I guess they painted the color instead of adding it to the resin. Visitor From Cosmo is a great team of guys. As far as I know these were only released on 3 occasions and they have not made any since. I haven't actually seen anything from them in a long time. I'm not sure if they're still releasing or not. For anyone who is lucky enough to track them down, before you put them on the body make sure you put them in some boiling water first. That gives the resin enough flexibility to make it on the body.

I have the second set of three in clear. I believe I've posted them here before but I'll put up another thread and show them again.

Actually my Torg is black resin. I thought that was a fluke, The white resin seemed pretty lame, but Resin is resin, y'know. (Just bought a Fidel Castro mego head in "commie" RED resin)

The original Japanese buyer probabally jumped on the Dokuro-Torg, but waited on the others.

Did you get the Gargamel Microman suit, the Meuteron?

Okay, here are better pix for a REVIEW of sorts.
I find it very interesting when the Japanese steal back Danys Fisher Interpretative artwork (in this case the artwork for the UK torg) and incorporate it into the Cyborg Walder scheme of things.





Here is the "Scary Darkness" coffin.


The Japanese baggies for the bits...



and the box art.

"Transformed into this ghoulish skeletal corruption of terrestial being, the Kindwalder seeks to destroy the very structure of the Earth. He can raise volcanose from thedead. Turn furtile plains into arid deserts. Reduce cities to dust in the terrifying seconds of hideous earthquakes. Until, he hopes the whole planet brings to crumble..."

Was it already painted? It's so hard to keep track of any of these. There could be 10 releases that we'd never ever no about as some of the pieces are sold out before the show even begins amongst the creators themselves. The black resin looks good for Dokuroking but I think for the other guys the color is a bit light anyway, so whatever color resin if you're painting it it probably needs some more anyway.

No I really wanted that, but wasn't able to get it when it came out. If you see one about give me a heads up. I'd really like to see some nice pics of it too if you don't mind.
