One of my loots from Hong Kong trip which I only paid 1200 HK dollars. It's probably a knockoff/bootleg of Bandai's limited edition however I'm surprised that it was so closely made that it even came with an exclusive brown shipping box that protects the black cover box that you see in the pic. The cover says "Next Vendor's Innovation", Bandai license dated 2015 and abbreviation of 'HG' - Hayakukoi Gokou. Can't be too sure, it's probably the name of the sculptor. Within the box laid a 10cm figure of dead Yamcha or some may called him Yamucha depending on how you translate.
Figure portrayed the dead state of Yamcha when Saibaiman blown up on him before he could even face off both evil Saiyans. We all know how few Yamcha figures were released in the past that's why an form of Yamcha figure circulated could be so sought for. Especially those he donned the Dragon Ball Z turtle 亀martial art attire. Then again who would buy a sidekick figure if you are not a fan. I know there are many Yamcha's fan just like me.
The dead facial expression is well-balanced, mimicking the anime scene of dead Yamcha with those soulless white eyes, on close-up can still see the scar on the face, tweaked eyebrows, painting on the mouth and inking in the ears. The arms ain't painted but I noticed clearly the supposedly exposed fleshes from the torn clothing were applied with skin colour paint. Impressive model close to the original, in accordance to the state of torrent.
Despite the small size and awkward shaping, the paintings were pretty neat. The martial art 亀 attire, wrist bands, belt and foot wear were all painted. The underside of the figure laying on the ground was completely flat when the figure was turned over.
An early Christmas gift received was a handphone pouch in the shape of Japanese Tatami bed! Just the right time for me to put Yamcha figure inside and it looks like Yamcha found a final resting place! So glad I have the diorama crater, which is such a perfect prop for this photography. With the use of handphone app 'PicArt', accompanied with the add-on, I really had a lot of fun!
