Toy collecting is infectious and poisonous as collection will lead from one toy to another. Sometime I really felt sense of guilt for spending so much on toys. It is so hard resisting this customised Cannon Fodder (brown version) Orguss Orgroid. The creator of this Cannon Fodder Orgroid had used high quality spray paint that would not scratched off when transformed. The skillfully painted brown version also made it look very military style.

By the way, I buy this customised Orguss Orgroid on Ebay from a local seller (for USD $86 including shipping) and only got to know that the seller is 'Robo Robo Toy Shop' located @ Excelsior Shopping Centre #B1-17. Most of the toy shops nowadays sell mostly commercialised reissued toys or new toys. But 'Robo Robo Toy Shop' is the remaining few collectibles toy shops that still sells vintage toys.

Lookout for Orguss Orgroid in 'Super Dimensional Fortress Macross'. It was a few seconds appearance at timing 5.03 of this clip. Watch it before it got blown away...
