I really wanted the mechabapezilla when it first came out last year. Looked really nice, specs wise and I don’t normally care for the box-art but I’ve got to say that the presentation on this yoyo in particular looked the bees knees.
At the time I couldn’t get one so I let it pass. Then the Mechavizilla came out looking equally fantastic but was also more dear, so I gave that a miss too.
I then saw the scales OG version Elvin put up for auction and it looked like the best version of it to date. I didn’t stand a chance at the auction so I prayed to the mighty throw gods that he’d do a OG run and thankfully they were listening.
I made sure to pick one of the OGs up and it doesn’t disappoint.
It’s actually a b-grade with a slight blemish behind the irg and slight fingernail vibe. Despite that, it’s just a fantastic yoyo. I know some people said it felt a little heavy, but I think the smaller size works well with the weight and the finish is beautiful. The anodised titanium leaves a nice temporary patina when it comes into contact with your skin. I’m really glad I held out for the OG version.
@yoyodoc, are you talking about the Tom Kuhn collaboration or is my other kidney going up on eBay for something else?
