I'll trade something of equal size and complexity for it right now, like say, a stapler[/thumb:1b7n5otk][/wrap:1b7n5otk]Check out this shot of Zetoca
that Highprime submitted a few weeks ago. I didn't think twice about it at the time, because it looks sort of innocuous, doesn't it? Like something you might have picked up in the checkout line at some kind of Japanese Woolworths back in the 80's, along with your onigiri and your Ultraman underwear. But after a bit of poking around, I began to realize that this sucker is a bit on the rare side. You're not likely to say, find one at aunt Mildred's garage sale. And if you do
see one propped there between the petit fours
dish and the croquet mallets, I suggest you run
mister, because it's a trap
. A quick search of past and present eBay auctions yielded 0 results. There are only 12 of these owned by shmax.com members (all of which might be Highprime). Even photos
of this toy are rare. A little googling will turn up a few badly photoshopped samples, and a few odds and ends from the occasional blog, but I dare say this may be the cleanest, most hi-res (actually, HP, we wouldn't complain if you went even a little higher on these) photo of this toy in existence. Prove me wrong, people!
