Vixen Question

Post by medicpelle » Sun Aug 25, 2019 9:57 pm

I have a few of the original run vixens. Is the second run a smaller size or did they make different sizes? My guess is the vixen is bigger than the barely legal vixen? The ones I have are bigger than one of the "newer" ones I saw recently.

Don't have the exact answer to your question, but the guy that made the repo man and vixen is re releasing them as 'teckel kicknocker.' Same molds, same plastic, same factory etc. Hideki Maeda.

At least from what I gather on the interwebs "-) Gonna order a few during the labor day sales.

One guy on TW posted about durability problems on the kicknocker. Curious to know if anyone else is experiencing this as well. Price went up from 15 to 20. Still a lot cheaper than what vixens go for on the second hand market.

There were two sizes yes. The barely legal vixen was the smaller size. Now that size is the Teckel kicknocker pup.
