Today’s desk buddy is the X-Plus Large Monster Series Gabara from All Monsters Attack (1969).
If I ever needed to spend a little one-on-one time with a figure, it’s definitely this one. I hardly ever look at it. And I’m not a huge fan of the kaiju.
Still, he’s an important part of All Monsters Attack so I’m trying to warm up to it.
I’ve sold off a few figures lately. This guy was on my To Go List. Had plans to sell even more but I’m not quite sure I want to do that.
Hence the one on one figure of the day approach. He’s on my desk all day today and hopefully I’ll learn to appreciate it more. It’s already starting to work.
When you have well over 100 X-Plus figures, each one tends to blur out of focus in lieu of the collection as a whole. ‘X-Plus of the Day’ is when I select one of them and keep them on my desk for the day in an attempt to enjoy and appreciate it away from the busy shelves.
