The epitome of salamander figure awesomeness!!! 8) And I'm typing that just a few seconds after I've received a certain DHL parcel... I haven't even opened it! :o ;D Give me a minute...

EDIT (a few minutes later after coming round): AAAAAH! :o.... (and still another few minutes later): Awesome! It's so much larger than expected and beautifully sculpted and painted, and even the matt finished, heavy resin base fits perfectly! I like it already more than any of my Study Room resins!!! ^-^

This is great :) But hey, it's a Kaiyodo, what can you expect? XD

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....
