The new show will be more based on the last few pages of Senso, that surrounds an ancestor of Usagi’s living in the far future. Not really the Space Usagi series. 

Ancestor or descendant?  

 

Yes, I know he created a new character, but it would not be out of question that he reuses a lot of his ideas from Space Usagi.

Found Critters #1 and Critters #2 (yes, I know Usagi isn't in #2) today in a box of random books, mostly Marvel stuff, at an LCS - I looked in the other boxes to see if they had any other issues or any other Usagi stuff, Turtles, etc., but these were it. $15 for the pair!

My Usagi corner of my samurai themed room

That's amazing! Awesome set-up. I remember when the original TMNT Usagi toy came out, I traded another kid a bunch of baseball cards for him!

I love Usagi as much as the next guy, probably more.  But it seems prices are getting out of hand.  A TMNT 47 in 9.8 just closed on eBay for $1,025.  It is the first appearance of Space Usagi but that still seems crazy Netflix show and all.  (Heck after the Netflix show was first announced you could get a 9.8 of the issue for $100).

Also have a UY corner of the family room

This setup might be my favorite. The black and white art compliments the simplicity of the space and dark oak cabinet. I love how you didn’t overfill it. A sketch of each of the crew too!!! It has just enough. Ok, I’ll stop now lol 

Where did you get the Samurai Usagi?

I don’t see it anywhere! These are surely tough to find. I love how the helmet comes off. I will surely be on the hunt for this!!!!

Descendent is the official word in the Netflix announcement on Stan's website 

@Jesse-Lee nice pickup on the Critters #1. Only the third UY cover appearance and the first appearance of Gen the Bounty Hunter. 

@GoldenAgeAddict what a great UY space. Thanks for sharing it. It may be worth reaching out to Roku toys to see if they have any Series 2 left... I recall from the UY Facebook group that some collectors had some luck with direct communication.

I tried the direct communication with them about a year ago without luck

I feel like there are people that read these boards and go buy up everything. You’re about to send Critters 1 to the moon lol A month ago it was the Summer Special people were talking about and now there are only a handful left on ebay.

Great score, and I agree Gen should be on the label. Arguably the most popular outside of Usagi himself.

Yes, sorry, descendant.
