I bought an Espgaluda II kit but it's missing that thing that you can hang (i guess). How exactly is it called?

Anyone know if it's possible to find it anywhere? I guess no one will want to sell just that.

Of course it's not that important, but... You know :lol:

Which part? The suction cup, the little spring piece, or the small circular art piece?

Are you talking about those suction cups that were included in some releases? (Or am I confusing something?)

I mean those three items, i guess they work together, right?

Were they available in all releases or as Bonus! says only in some? Maybe my kit never had those, but most Full Kits i see online have them, so i took for granted that it was standard.

I remember a thread that had a list with all the Cave kits and all the "bells and whistles" that came with them but i can't find it :oops:

Your kit could really be a random Cave box and a reprint artwork set.

Thanks.

I found this info: "The only discernable difference between original artsets and reprints (based on first-hand comparisons) is that reprints are a touch darker"

Guess i can't tell the difference without a known first print to compare :lol:

Thank you all for the info guys.

It's called a 'spinner', it came with all EII kits.

Your artset will basically be indistinguishable from the originals, so it doesn't matter if it's a reprint or not. The colour temperature is more obvious on older artsets like Ketsui and Espgaluda, but even then, utterly marginal.

Amazing how these things have become so elusive. I had this thing on its own up for sale about 6 years ago and nobody wanted it for £15 quid. It sat unsold for ages.

I can't even remember what happened in the end.

At least you're not after a Ketsui suction cup. Rarest suction cup there is!
