Top SangYo Plush
There are two sets of plushies from the Top SangYo (aka Top Industry) line. Set 1 plushies were the first characters released and all have a large version. They also have a re-released small plush with embroidery instead of paint (for toes, scars, and some markings). Set 2 plushies were the second set of characters, all with embroidered small versions and a large version. Only Gin, Riki, and Weed can have a curly tail. There are also "giant" plush which are significantly larger than the others, but very rarely seen. The cost of these plushies ranges from $100 - $1000+ in auction depending on version and character.
Top SangYo also created a large and small Weed for promoting the anime. These have embroidered toes, normal tails, and a DVD tag that is attached to the back leg instead of on a string. These plushies were sold cheaper and were easier to obtain when released, so they are valued less than the regular plushies. We have compiled more details on the different Weed plushies.
Small: 7 inches tall (17 cm)
Large: 10-11 inches tall (26 cm)
Giant: 13 inches tall (33 cm)
The Finnish (PurePlastic) plushies are large, fluffy plushies with short legs. They are much more easily obtained unlike the Japanese ones, and are available from Urumi. The GDW plush are finally getting sold out, and the new GNG line are now available. Some of the GNG plush are limited edition in number made only.
These plush were released by FaNeMa to celebrate Yoshihiro Takahashi's 50th anniversary as a mangaka (event info). There are 5 smaller keychain plush.
The first special plush is the "Promo" Weed plush. There is very limited info on how many of these plushies were given away, but it is a very small number. The other plush we are putting in this category is a FaNeMa Gin Plush, which was released at the same time as the keychain plushies.
