This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said “Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad) I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
This was posted way back in 2012 and it’s not very detailed—is this a fanwork, not the actual prototype for the announced figure? (Googletranslate isn’t helping.)
Damn good, but not quite to Kotobukiya’s standards. It MIGHT be an early prototype (I think this might be from around the time when Kotobukiya said they would make a Bakura figure), but I expect it’s fanwork.
It’s based on one of the pics from the Duel Art book… I’d post it if I weren’t on mobile, but it’s the one with him and Ryou, and a Monster World board with Zorc in the background.
