Also, really happy to hear your Large Tailstretcher turned out so well and beautiful! The tailstretcher truly is perfect and mine will never leave the collection! I have all three sizes now (Thanks to you!~) but now I have to agree that I want one with a Suction cup on the large! I honestly wish they would've kept it but at least we can still get it somehow xP Btw, how much total was it for you to get that? It is something I hope to get in the distant future when I have the spare cash but I am hoping to save up for an apartment first but it would be nice to know about how much it would be!
I'm going to see if Ika redeems himself in future encounters. I usually give it a few tries before I make a verdict. I mean... It is pretty hard to live up to tailstretcher! Lol
I PMed you about pricing. I would suggest getting one with a suction cup. I did this weird circular grinding thing and omg that was amazing. If it wasn't firmly stuck, it would've just gone all over the place.

I also think it was because people complained about the size delta and the design. The difference between medium and large is huge. Winston large bridged that gap. I actually don't like the little bit of legs on Winston. It makes me feel like it's a small dragon. Whereas with Tailstretcher, I can imagine it's just the tip of a huge dragon!
Also the older models had a noticeable amount of printer texture. Tailstretcher is definitely one of them. But the printer texture goes vertically, along with his shape, so it's not as bad as some of the other ones were. I'm sad he's gone but there were too many "little things" in addition to probably older/not as good molds as they're making now. Tailstretcher was one of the original BD toys and I'm sure their process has improved drastically. Just wish they didn't scrap something that was so damn good.
I will probably buy another tail if they do a legacy drop. Especially a medium with a SC. Or any pretty looking ones lol. Tails for days!
