Aaaah, one of the best salamander figures, ever! :) It was the first of the (still only few) NMoJ figures I got.

:o I assume this black cylindrical thing underneath the salamander's base wasn't part of the figure? I don't have that piece. Oh wait, is this possibly part of a confetti party bomb or something? ;D

Actually this was my very first Kaiyodo figure. When I saw it the first time, I was pretty shocked. I could hardly believe that such figures were being produced and praised the lord above for giving us the internet ;D.

I found two of these cylindrical rubber things coincidentally at work. I have no clue what they are, I use them to give figures more distance to the floor (shadow). I should have used it for the last pic as well ::).

I always wanted that one, but it always seemed to go too high in price for me. So I go without.

Funny thing is that even in Japan auctions, it still goes for quite a lot, so it's clearly popular and rare everywhere.
