Oh I never saw this thread before, here is my most recent pic of Danbo (well Danbo's) from a few days ago. With all this rain I'm going back to the indoor old favorites.

Did most of you guys get the Mini Danbo or the big one.
Love all the shots on here really cool.
Whats the difference between the version 2 of the mini and the v1?

I was looking at this pack

then this?...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Revoltech-Da...#ht_3081wt_836

Big price difference are some plastic and some cardboard?
I saw shots with them near water and in snow surely destrying the carboard.

Would appreciate any of you fanatics to get back to me!

Cheers!,

Pricey cute little sh*t tho!
Adds some funny emotion to close/macro shots not macro but you know what I mean... light hearted story board on a single shot type stuff.

It does, but while you wait, mix it up with different characters!

I bought 4 of the mini plastic guys but the seller didn't put the price on the box and didn't combine shipping so customs had a field day delaying them all. Three weeks from Japan to Ireland then a week and a half from Athlone to Dublin, I told them I'd collect the parcels from Athlone myself to further speed things up but no dice. I've given most of them away to friends already but I do think its money well spent because I collect a lot of anime and manga toys and Revoltech always have the best joints. As for the cardboard ones all they do is rip off people on sites like DeviantArt by printing their Danbo models and then charging for them.

Go for plastic because you will get a lot of more life out of it and there are a lot more options available in terms of posing and such. Try and make sure the seller puts the price on the parcel or customs will more than likely stop it, its typical really because I've come back from Tokyo with boxes of stuff before and customs didn't care. I guess just be aware of possible delays from customs and a charge of about €15 per Danbo.

Oh just a little something on other characters, Forbidden Planet on the Quays is the best place for getting something similar on the actual day with no wait. Tallon's little mushroom guy is part of a set they are doing at the moment for under €20 last time I looked, there were another 4 or 5 characters in the set.

Is it the photos, or the actual character you 'don't get'?

I know it's clearly a style you're using on the Danbo pictures, Lisa, but the titling feels a little unsubtle and the detached looking font and colour detracts from what are otherwise good compositions.

@Syferus - That's why I usually take a picture with and without Danbo so the font isn't always there, I back up all the RAW shots too just in case. Originally it was "Time Flies" because at the time a fly was on his head but I shopped it out, you can kind of make out where it was perched on the far right of his head.

It looks like a Pixar character.

I got one recently, and it is an odd little thing. So much character to it.
