Tango's recent thread here: TMP link has me thinking again on a long-slumbering urge to do something Japanese. In looking over those rather wonderful photos, I spotted a figure I especially like, but for the life of me can't remember the manufacturer.

If you go to the blog post ( and look at the 18th photo, he's there in the lower left hand area: a bald chap in blue robes with a huge no-dachi over his shoulder, apparently in the middle of doing a hornpipe. Anybody recognize him? I thought he might be Dixon but on perusing their website I haven't been able to spot him.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I've got at least one (but in orange robes). I'm certain he is Dixons, sadly their web site is short on photos but you can download their catalogue PDF linkwhich has sketches…

I think that he is SM1 Monk Marching with a choice of weapons.

Bingo! That's him. I thought he was a Dixon! John, thanks very much for looking at the photo and taking the time to respond!

They look suitably ferocious for sure! I really like that pose. Excellent brushwork, MG!
