Welcome to the Kaiju General!>Previously: >>8599099>Here you can discuss anything kaiju toy related.>From Bandai vinyls to NECA to Playmates to SHMA to X-Plus and everything in between!>Archived Threads:https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/search/subject/Kaiju%20general/
You DID manage to secure the preorder for the MONDO Godzilla Tiki Mug, right anon? It's only a measly $65 before tax and shipping.
>>8639011I guess he's not really a capsule kaiju anymore, more like a mech, but the Sevenger Z figuarts went up so I preordered that. I usually stick to showa-era releases for toku and kaiju but it looks like a solid release and Ultraman Z is a fun show. Probably wont buy any of the other releases though unless they make kaiju
>>8639011Too bad you can never find these Hedorahs for less than $100
Bros I really wanna get the 2002 SHMA for Christmas but the QC issues turn me off. How have yours been? Might hold off on getting a millenium SHMA until they make a FinalGoji one
>>8639461I think your best bet is to buy a preowned one and ask the seller all about the QC issues, buying a brand new one is a gamble.
>Suit-accurate Godzilla 2000 figure never everGod dammit, brehs
>>8639745Betting right now NECA was sitting on a 2000 sculpt that they'll never be able to release.>>8639461Want mine? Original run, eyes were decent, had a defect where the cap for the right arm was warped so it kept popping off .
>>8639934Mine has an arm that's always popping off. Is there any way to fix this?
>>8639013How the fuck does one drink from this gilded goblet?
>>8640864ClearlyYou start at the spine, and the hollow head makes a convenient nose hole
>>8639745Don't jinx it breh. SHMA will rise again, hopefully with less shit QC.>>8639934Thanks man but I live in Asia and international shipping is a bitch.
>>8640864What this guy said >>8640884. You got go from his back, you see? Sip nice and gentle, pepper him from his to his shoulder with little baby kisses, then lick the back of his neck. And when he's almost complete and empty, just slurp his head. Then whisper in his ear, "I love you little Goj," and you'll feel real warm and sweet inside from his hot juices you drank so needily.
>>8641622They should have made a hole in the mouth so you could french Godzilla. and if you fill him with blue raspberry slushy it'll look like atomic blast.
what's a generally good kaiju figure for a first? i want something big and COOL, anything bipedal is a plus
>>8642203NECA's Godzilla vs Biollante or Tokyo SOS figures are pretty fantastic firsts. Good size, heavy, great looking figures.
>>8639013I unironically did. I'll post pics whenever it arrives.>>8640864With a straw.
>>8642203>i want something big and COOLTake the X-Plus pill once you get your Trumpbux. Don't waste your money on SHMA.
>>8640720Paper, nail polish, or floor polish.Basically thickening the ball joint, at least on mine that's all it needs.>>8641012Understandable, plus it getting lost due to the plague is far too real of a fear.
still trying to decide what Shin G figure to get. I'd like to have all 3 forms and have them scale with one another, but as far as I can tell, the only decent option for that is the ungodly expensive Sunguts series or maybe some amalgamation of Bandai figures. anyway, favorite Shin figures?
>>8643735Monsterarts is probably the route you want to go.
>>8644637Yeah, realistically that may be the best choice, though SHMA's take on the first two forms looks a bit janky with the obscene amount of articulation.
>>8643735The SHMA is a fun figure but the normal form has disappointing paint, and the Awakening version is very expensive (but the best looking imo). The frozen one isn't that expensive but a lot of people don't want it for obvious reasons. Despite the normal one's issues, it's one of my favourite SHMA to fuck around with.Not articulated, but have you considered the Banpresto prize figure? I actually don't know how much it goes for nowadays though but I remember it looking pretty good. Don't know about the other two forms in regards to options/scale
>>8643735There's the Shin deforealsPretty good imo, there's some areas that sell them for $100 but beats spending $400 for them
We weren't ever getting a trailer for Christmas were we? Not just because of the legal thing. I mean the whole "Legendary teased a trailer for Christmas with their Twitter banner" thing just comes off like an unintended side effect of having a nod to it on there that they can't take back without causing even more backlash.
GvK plot has officially completely leaked. Too bad /toy/ doesn't have spoiler tags.
>>8648179>>8648198I'm pretty sure these were already posted/linked on earlier threads sometime after the HK leaks.
>>8648198Good god that sounds unbearable. Americans really can't make Godzilla movies.
>>8648179We have no reason to believe these leaks
>>8648198That sounds fucking awesome.
>>8648179>>8648198Debunked. The "snake" is actually called Warbat, not what OP claims it is.
>>8648680I think OP's just reposting leaks that were already out for some time. The snake thing seemed to be called Nozuki before the released ones had it as Warbat. Probably doesn't even get a name in the actual movie unless they did that in the reshoots.
>>8648680Wasn't it originally called 'Nozuki' or something like that?
>>8642207Both really good figures but King Kong vs Godzilla is still my favorite Neca Godzilla, he's hefty and feels way more expressive than the rest of the line.
>>8643735I have pic related for sale if you want it. Scales well with the Banpresto one which is my personal favorite. The XPLUS ones are too expensive and the figuarts are also not the best.
>>8649067I'm going to let that anon get it if he wants it, but what figure is this one? I dig it.
>>8649139Art spirits shin 2nd form.
>>8649067Ah probably a bit out of my broke student price range, but thanks for the offer anon. Looks like this guy >>8649139 might be interested though, very cool figure.
>>8649640It's probably just slightly out of my price range for figures also, assuming the anon selling it is looking for any kind of profit off of the transaction, and isn't marking it off below its retail price.
>>8639745The vinyl bandi figure is still the best IMO besides the latest X-Plus release.
>>8650308I'm glad I snagged that. Maybe one day the X-Plus will unwittingly be sold for cheaper somewhere.
>>8639013This is a good idea because Showa boomers are also probably in that generation that love kitsch Tiki shit. No one past that generation really gets the appeal of it it seems. People here trashed Geeki Teeki stuff but I find them full of char,.
>>8639013>Sold outI-I didn't want it anyways!;_;
>>8651055I’m a 30-year-old Showa boomer, and I bought one. I guess I gotta learn how to make cocktails now.
Merry Christmas, Kaiju General!
>>8651719You alsoOut visiting today, and one of them got me another '54 Neca. I have the 1954 already, and he's one of my favourite Godzilla figures, but this one is completely bollocks. He's got two right arms, something wrong with his back, a loose tail, weird scuffs everywhere, and of course he's walleyed. I guess I'm glad he came to me, instead of some kid who wouldn't know how to fix him. No idea what to do about his arm, though.
>>8652469Don't buy things from the bootleg China Town market.
looks like warbat is out in europe the new kong with the fighter jet too, it has different paint on the face and chest
>>8653528From this packaging we also know there are multiple Warbats so we can safely debunk any alleged leaks that refer to a singular serpentine kaiju.
>>8653528He looks kind of familiar. I hope we see more of these than what I expect. He's pretty neat.
>>8653528I'd like to see what it looks like not wrapped up. Is this what you all think it looks like too, roughly sketched in pic?
>>8655506It must be, unless there are three or four ventral fins. It looks like the two dorsal 'wings' attach up near the head, and there are more underneath.
>>8653528>this is what it looks likes Oh.
This little nigga is pretty cool. Only my 2nd SH monsterarts and the ball pegs for everything works really well here but pieces want to fall off here and there. Still love the figure it poses and displays really nice.
>>8653528What the fuck is that even supposed to be?
>>8657945A giant snake that flies? Swims? Glides?
>>8657945That is a bat bread for war, and it is made out of failure and aids.
>last xmas I got a 2019 burning Godzilla neca>this xmas I got a 2019 burning Godzilla XplusDidn't realize it till today but it gave me a laugh, what a upgrade.
>tfw preordered too many toys that come out next monthWe're getting that $2k stimulus, right bros?
>>8658462>bread for warGodzilla gonna make a sandwich?
Oof. Time to eat nothing but noodles for a while.
>>8659293I'm honestly kicking myself for preordering that thing, but too late to turn back now. I think I'm done with SHMA after this unless they do something like King Ghidorah 1964 or Gigan 1972.
>>8648787THAT'S MECHA GODZILLA? HAHAHHAHAHA These look solid though
Anyone have experience with these kits?
>>8659592Paint and glue are required. Not snapfag friendly.
>>8648198Oh god sounds like more of the same from King of the Monsters
>>8659301Lord help me, I want Battra, Special Color Spacegodzilla and possibly Mecha King Ghidorah. I got Biollante coming, I lucked with all the others, getting them at retail other than Gigan. But I got Giga back in 2016 before sodomizing prices.
>>8659822I've bought all of mine retail, but they are still pretty expensive for what you get. I can't believe I preordered that Biollante when I can get a 30cm X-Plus for less. I'm running out of space for shit anyway. I'm gonna try to control myself more in 2021.
>>8659116Unfortunately, probably yes. I feel you though.>two Deforeals on pre-order, soon to be a third>shipping for my last one was about $30
>>8659116I feel this, I feel fucking stupid with how much shit I bought this last month.
>>8660079You'll feel better as you open everything and have 20 boxes piled up. Wondering where to put them.
>>8659589No. As far as we know, that design is toy exclusive. Mechagodzilla does have a figure though. Apparently it's going to be part of the wave 2 6" stuff coming out in February alongside Warbat and the Kong that has a fighter jet.
>>8660111I know I'm in the minority, but I'm excited for this Mechagodzilla design. It could be pretty neat in motion, and I like the weird claw-machine hands. I have no idea about that Godzilla with the armor, though.
>>8661390She went to the dentist to get her teeth whitened.
>>8661390WHY?!?! This fucking toyline is taking the piss by literally being the only good kaiju toyline in this price range and they give us this. Didn't even order the 1954 and 2002 reissues
>>8660111I really hope it isn't too similar to the mechagoji they used in Ready Player One.
>>8661554Take the X-Plus pill.
>>8659116Literally one decrepit asshole pushed all our shit in and made us get not a cent more than 600
>>8663369Just saying, not everyone deserves $2000. I'm working and wouldn't mind a smaller stimilus rather sending our country into further debt. A $2000 check should go to those who really need it. Not us assholes who want to spend it on toys!
>>8663513>not everyone deserves $2000This. I remember in my good old hard times, when this kind of money was hard to come by. Now they're just throwing it around. I almost feel insulted.
>>8663513>>8663717Shut up faggots. $600 is a small fraction of the money that has been stolen out of my paychecks by the government this year. The people who don't deserve the money are already getting it from unemployment, welfare, WIC, NEETbux, etc. Not trying to be political on /toy/, but even working people deserve to get their own money back in order to stimulate the economy. Maybe Godzilla toys aren't the best use of that money, but most people would spend it paying bills, buying household supplies, or ordering takeout from restaurants. Christmas is already over, so most normalfags wouldn't blow it on consumerist junk.
>>8663513How about you eat shit? The country is going into debt regardless, at least do it to help the actual people in this country.
You just want an easy 2k for nothing. Dirty liberal socialist.
>>8664479You just want toys for cheap while all the hard work the Chinese do is paid for with peanuts.
>>8664479>You just want an easy 2k for nothing.
>>8663839It's funny, isn't it? They complain about the economy dying because people aren't spending enough, but also complain that if you give people money, they'll spend it. An interesting conundrum.
>>8663839>The people who don't deserve the money are already getting it from unemployment, welfare, WIC, NEETbux, etcYeah, those people are the problem.Stupid Trumpanzee
>>8664539>people who refuse to work and/or have illegitimate children they can't afford are the problem
>>8664500no, we don't want a $2000 check unless we live in poverty. If I can afford expensive toys, I don't need a government handout.
>>8663839>>8663513It looks like the bill passed, even though the president is trying to make revisions to it (probably won't go through). It not only gave us money, but also about a trillion dollars to foreign governments too. Take that as you will. I'd rather have nothing than giving almost everyone $2k and then giving billions upon billions of dollars to other nations like Egypt, Pakistan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc.Anyways, I've been going through my Godzilla stuff. Does anyone else here collect books and posters too?
>>8664723Based. I'll take your gibs since you don't want or need it.>>8664726My parents bought me some repro movie posters for the 1954 American artwork and the 1992 Noriyoshi Ohrai artwork as Christmas gifts. I'd like to start collecting vintage posters, since I'm running out of space for actual toys.
>>8664723>>8664726>>8664479>>8663717>>8663513I'm sure you all will be putting your check in to charity, then. I mean, it should go to the people who really need it, right? You must be pretty well off if you're turning down money like that.
>>8664792If I got $2000 from the government, I would most definitely donate it to those who need it, not a charity, friends or family that are severyly impacted by these events. I will post pics to prove it too. Because I refuse to be a shitty two faced person.
>>8664792My point >>8664726 is that I'd rather they not even pass the bill with what was attached to it. They should have gave us $2k no strings attached. Even then, I know others need it more than me so not sure what I'll do with it yet.>>8664751>1992 Noriyoshi OhraiNice, I love the artwork in the posters he worked on.
>>8664835looking forward to it>>8664851fair enough anon, I hate the riders too. I've had to come to terms with the fact that our government is fucking retarded and doesn't want to actually help its people unless it can also fuck them long and hard in some other way at the same time.
People are already getting Biollante
>>8664929BBTS customers will get it by July.
>>8664929only fuckers that paid $400+ to import it.States won't have it until Feb
>>8664536>complain about economy dying>buying foreign goods from asian countries will help us outAn interesting conundrum.
God I can't wait for the SHMA
>>8665988He looks a little like Super Godzilla.
I want this, but I don’t own a record player.https://waxworkrecords.com/products/godzilla-the-showa-era-soundtracks-1954-1975?variant=33003145429053
>>8666941You can buy vinyls for display, though you might as well pay an extra $100 to be able to listen to those.
>>8665988So animated or CGI anime again?
>>8667198From the looks of it, animated with CGI monsters.
>>8667272Definitely will have a SHMA of it then if its a CGI anime Godzilla
>>8665988>another GodzillaYeah, they'll do it, and ignore everything else.
>>8667472We never got Snow Godzilla, even though it would've been the easiest repaint in the world.
>>8667967But it wasn't a Godzilla movie. So it makes sense. They haven't done Godzilla cameos yet.
>>8668078Just wait until they do the Stan Winston Godzilla
>>8666941Now that's keyed, but fuck if I'm spending $500 on records
>>8668115>Just wait until they do the Stan Winston Godzilla
>>8665988Who the fuck asked for another human-centric Godzilla anime with utterly lifeless looking CGI kaiju that don't even feel like living creatures as a result?
>>8669610I'm gonna kill you. Grab a kazoo, let's have a duel.
so a couple months ago I contacted blufin that my 2002 monsterarts jaw broke off in the package they said they'll send a replacement but instead I got another figure so I guess that's cool so now what do I do with the one I have?
>>8669584It's a win if Godzilla actually moves more than 3 feet in this one.
>>86696991st repair your broken 2002 and maybe try to turn it into a 2003.2nd. bluefin doesn't have replacement parts for the godzilla line. if anything is wrong, they'll send you a replacement figure. that's just how it works.
>>8669757But he only has two feet.
>>8665047WHY THE FUCK DID I PREORDER FROM THEM
>>8670085>"break" a Biollante joint >ask for a replacement >get another freeez
New Bandai Movie Monsters series coming this year, time to celebrate>Ultraman (Shin Ultraman)>Kong (2021)>Gyaos (1995)>Giant Legion >Minilla (Godziban)>Little Godzilla (Godziban)>Godzilla-kun (Godziban)>Jet Jaguar
>>8676021Because you're poor and needed to wait to pay the full price of it (like me).
>>8676054None of which will happen.
>>8676417?? Bandai Japan, not Bandai Creation
>>8676054when are we gonna see prototypes and where'd you get this list
>>8676054If you're lying I will choke you out.
Bros... I think I'm done with SHMA until they make a 1965 or 1968 Goji.
>>86768942004 Goji fer me
>>8676417>>8676590>>8676773Jet Jaguar is up for pre-order on at least one reliable site, to be released in June.The three Godziban were listed on BBTS and other places as place-holders.Some Japanese website called BicCamera listed the rest of them and the Godziban ones. I don't know how reliable BicCamera is, but several reliable news sites are reporting it so I don't see why to question it. Those may not happen till later in the year though for all we know.
>>8677269>I don't know how reliable BicCamera isWhy would they be unreliable? They're a huge store chain.
>>8677504Because I've never heard of them before until today.
>>8677641That's your problem.
Dumbass question but are there any bootleg Monsterarts out there? I’m trying to get my hands on an awakened Shin Goji and I’m just curious if it’s possible that I may accidentally buy a bootleg or not.
>>8663839>wants social welfare money>complains about people on social welfareFunny how socialism is only cool when you benefit from it, eh anon?
>>8669624That boy needs therapy.
>>8678517There is a KO of King Ghidorah (Heisei) but I think that's about it. If it's cheap it's either listed improperly or a factory stolen copy.Awakened Shin has no KOs so you should be fine
>>8678679Awesome. Thank you anon. I just rewatched Shin Godzilla with a buddy of mine and I forgot how breathtaking the atomic breath scene was.
>>8678695Good luck, he's been getting expensive. I would've loved to have that one but I already have the vanilla Shin (and no space to justify a second copy).It's a very fun mold to play with, just wish the hands wouldn't pop out so easily
>>8678549Getting my own money back isn't socialism. Is getting a tax refund every year also socialism?
Now THIS is some Kaiju shit
>>8679333>333 The real god has arrived
>>8660111Here Mega Kong is, now in better quality.
>>8660111Now I can see the little soldiers in the leak. Looks like Mechagodzilla comes with a tiny little beam attack, too. And some vehicle, maybe? It doesn't look like a person.
>>8680761>>8680765I wonder what happened to the armor thing. First thought was maybe this Mega Godzilla is actually the one in >>8660111 with that smaller Mechagodzilla on the right, but that's in a smaller scale. That one also seems to have the light up function, but there haven't been any photos or details of either of them since the HK leak.
>>8660111A different angle on the display.
>>8680818Yeah it's definitely the same heat ray one being used for the Mega Godzilla figures. I wonder if the armor one's still even being made at this point. Maybe there's now multiple ones with the armor version being part of a later wave.
I'm surprised nobody here mentioned the new toy add for GVK
>>8682247Because the Playmates toys are terrible.
>>8682253Their Godzilla isn't good, but the Skullcrawler is great. Kong is okay, except his terrible paint.
>>8682798>except his terrible paintand texture.
>>8665988>classic cartoon crazy/angry eyesI love it!
Are the Playmates Skullcrawlers still hard to come by these days? There's a Walmart not too far from me that has a TON, along with the Gigan and Space Godzilla figs. Never see em anywhere else, so was thinking of just snagging a few to sell to some anons at the base price, if they're still as rare as they were initially. This Walmart is PACKED with GvK/Godzilla Playmates shit that never seems to be sold.
>>8685588And Destroyah as well.
Steven’s toy reviews says there’s a Euro leak of a NECA animated Kong figure pic,anyone have an image of it?
>>8685588All I see are Kongs. I've never seen one in the wild. Godzillas come and go pretty quickly, as well.
>>8685651Really? I do see a lot of Kong, but the store I go to is always stocked to the brim with nearly everything. Hoping to snag a Warbat tomorrow. Guess I could always stock up on extras and sell em later.
>>8685616Steven's Toy Reviews are shit and you should feel bad for watching them.
>>8685688>Hoping to snag a Warbat tomorrow.They're not in 'Murica yet, are they?
>>8685616>>8685803Seriously, he's such a fag. What sucks is he posts here too, you can tell by how he talks in his reviews. The guy needs to get socked in the throat.
>>8669584Bro it's not even out yet. Plus the CGI is being handled by the dudes that made Beastsars so I think it's in pretty good hands.
>>8640864>How the fuck does one drink from this gilded goblet?
>>8669584Godzilla hasn't been monster-centric since the 60s
>>8687579The two Kiryu movies were pretty heavy on monsters. I can't even remember any characters except the girl pilot.They were also horrendously boring.
>>8685803Hes just an edgey Boomer lol not too bad
>>8687605I watch him because he's hard on what he reviews. Mostly unfairly and completely based on his own whims, yes, but I can't stand any of the other channels, so I'm stuck.
My partner and I keep finding goldmines of Godzilla stuff in town so our plastic lizard collection grows
>>8687903>My partner and I
>>8687605Wut. Not even a boomer yo. Have you seen his profile lol. Millennial all the way. Also edgy? No man. Just no. More like a blunt ass hole who only cares about himself. He's fumming with I am better than you attitude.
>>8687614You aren't looking hard enough if all you can settle for is his channel. There are other godzilla related sources that you can support that aren't ass holes to their followers.
>>8687903>K. Rool amiiboBased brother croc.
Which particular figure is this, and how many thousands of dollars does it arbitrarily cost?
>>8688953M1go Godzilla 2000, HMV store exclusive.
>>8689012>not even on eBay to begin withAbout what I expected. Thank you. Will keep an eye out.
>>8687906imagine being this fragile
>>8689120Saying "my partner" is gayer than saying "my boyfriend" and triple dog gay if you're actually referring to your girlfriend
>>8689341fragile little baby
>>8688953I'm looking for this one, it's probably not as rare as the HMV exclusive, but it ain't turning up.
>>8688927Ain’t my main but if you want a challenge, hmu with that friend code
>>8689341This. I can smell the aids from here.
>>8688953>how many thousands of dollars does it arbitrarily cost?Why is all of this getting so expensive? I was thinking about buying some of the older things a year or two ago, and now it's completely unreasonable.
>>8690052Demand vs. supply. If you got only 3 or 5 people selling it they can pretty much make up the entire aftermarket $$$ too. Not saying it's actually valued that high, but people tend to put higher price tags on items when there's hardly any competition. Also, godzilla merch is expensive because of how difficult it is to get a hold of once a production run is completed
>>8690067Godzilla is one of those franchises that have people ready to throw money like nothing. Same thing with Transformer collectors, Saint Seiya, Dragonball Z, etc. I'll never understand the appeal to throw hundreds for something that looks like a (cool) Chinese knockoff though.
Can you put a lit base under that meltdown Godzilla to light it up?
>>8688953Just buy the Imperial Godzilla figures and paint em yourself bro they're rad, take it from a poorfag like me.
>>8689474Manda have listed atm for 15k anon go. I bought the blue version not long ago, such a cool figure.
>>8690110Anon, seek help about your blue meth addition!
>>8690100>Same thing with Transformer collectorsI'm only a fan of one particular iteration of Transformers, but that did entail purchasing a 300+ dollar version of my favorite character, a different kind of plastic dinosaur than we typically post in here. I'm so fucking petrified of accidentally breaking any one of this fragile thing's paper-thin panels that I haven't dared to transform it yet. I don't know how you work up the nerve to do it with something like this. My most expensive Godzilla purchase was just a little over a hundred. Granted, I stay away from the high-end stuff until there's a good sale or a great deal for me. As much as I love Biollante, I can't even make myself feel any desire for her Monsterarts. I hate this hobby sometimes.
>>8690116I can stop any time I want!
>>8690117>but that did entail purchasing a 300+ dollar version of my favorite character...BW Megatron? My most expensive SHMA was only a mere 13k pre-owned, which was a stupid good deal. Things like Monsterarts I don't mind breaking open the wallet a bit because I know they'll be stupid expensive anyway later on in the future, so it's either a 'I get it now or potentially regret' case and knowing that I can at least make my money back if I ever sell it.Biollante is definitely not worth that much in pic related, but you haven't considered the reissue? Granted it's still expensive and apparently not as nice looking, but I think that's really the last chance to ever get her for an okay price.
>>8690136The MP BW Megatron, yes(sss). He looks great with my Godzillas in beast mode as he is, but maybe someday I'll attempt a transformation. I've heard bad things about SHMA reissues, and the price tag is still a bit much, but I have thought about it.
>>8690146I hope you didn't buy him recently, I would've just got the KO instead lol.Yeah her reissue pricetag is definitely inflated, but she'll inevitably go back up in price (not as much as the original). Alternatively you can use that money for...whatever. I don't actually collect vinyls to know what other options you got for her.
>>8690110This is perfect but I can't register on this site. It expects me to live in Japan despite allowing me to input my US address. It won't let me proceed to payment without inputting a prefecture I don't live in.
How's this guy? Any good deals anywhere?
>>8690110>>8690153Nevermind, solved. Thanks very much.
>>8690183Good luck, storefront means it might have been sold but stay hopeful>>8690159the best mold of SHMA Shin you can buy, but I'm pretty sure the aftermarket prices are high. I know normal Shin costs a lot more now, let alone the web exclusive version that's superior.Stalk Mandarake and other pre-owned Japanese stores, don't bother with eBay because you'll always pay more
>>8690196If it is sold, this site looks incredibly useful for finding the item again.
>>8687598The Kiyru movies were basically live-action anime stylistically when you compare them to the older movies. Really, all of the Millennium movies were like that except for maybe Godzilla 2000.>*catches a fly in front of your face*
>>8689341Broke:>my girlfriendWoke:>my concubine
>>8690146>I've heard bad things about SHMA reissues, and the price tag is still a bit much, but I have thought about it.SHMA isn't even worth it anymore unless they do another budget Godzilla, or a character you really love. I kind of regret preordering the Biollante reissue simply because it's so expensive. It'll look good with my NECA 1989s, but I don't think I'm gonna buy SHMA anymore after I receive it. X-Plus is what you actually want for something that is cool to display.
>>8690498I'm still floored at how bad the eye printing was on the re-releases. I don't know how you fuck that up.
>>8690537I'm sure the pandemic had a lot to do with it, since all this shit is made in China, and some anons have said that the price of plastic is also increasing. I'm sure it was just one cost-cutting measure they implemented. The paint on SHMA was already starting to suffer back in 2019 before covid, if not earlier.
>>8690537Eye placement has always been a problem for the SHMA line for some reason, although some releases were definitely better than others.
>>8690498>>8690537I'm glad I'm done with the SHMA line. I doubt they're gonna make the few I want (not Godzillas) and I got no more display space for any other figure.I understand it's more expensive to produce figures, but I'm not buying it with the quality:cost. There are many figures Bandai is making that haven't suffered a quality hit nor have they been as expensive (in comparison to prior releases).
>>8690767I liked SHMA, but the articulation is such a gimmick that doesn't even make any difference unless you're recreating movie scenes and doing toy photography. I'd rather just buy X-Plus to get something bigger and more screen-accurate if I'm going to spend that kind of money. I'm running out of space as well, and can no longer justify buying toys I don't absolutely have to own until I move into a bigger place.
>>8687903The trendmasters stuff has held up so well. I love the Baby godzillas so much. I buy them everytime I see one around the thrift stores.
>>8690767>>8690776I'm happy with my SHMA collection but I bought things as they came out. If I were a kaiju fan getting into collectibles now, I'd just recommend xplus, so long as they have the room to display them. I enjoy articulation but the price difference between SHMA and xplus has become too small, especially at secondhand prices, and the articulation isn't that big of a deal.
Is that NECA King Kong any good?
>>8691965I think so, for $25. I wouldn't want to pay too much more than that. He has a good range of articulation and is fairly good sized. I just wish he had a closed mouth and some giant handcuffs. Otherwise really good.
>>8690776I'm not the biggest fan of Godzilla or kaiju movies in general (I think they're just ok) but I have a decent sized SHMA collection. I buy them more as action figures than representations first and foremost so inaccuracy doesn't bother me too much.I'm not even sure why I enjoy them as much as I do.>>8691092I've never paid retail for any of my SHMAs aside from SFB Kiryu, and there are rarely any figures I would pay the latecomers tax for let alone would buy over an X-Plus.And then there's SHMAs like Gigan that are really neat
>>8691965It's fucking great, yeah!
>>8691965He's really solid for his price. Maybe a little tall for dinosaur fightin', but that's about it.
>>8692233He's pretty solid for any price, there's just not a better monkey around that good.
>>8691965Yeah he's great. He's lacking some accessories I would normally expect to come with any Kong figure, like a closed mouth head, chains/wrist cuffs, and a hand with a mini Ann Darrow, but overall a great figure, great quality.
So, since he's kind of a kaiju... One figure that's been on my "to get" list for a while now is the S.H. Figuarts Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that came out a few years ago, to go along with my MonsterArts and Ultra-Act crew. Does anyone here have him? How is he? Would you recommend him?
>>8691965I was on the fence until I got it. Now it's one of my favorites. Easily the best Kong figure.
>>8692730I'm really annoyed that the best Kong figure depicts a purely fictitious Kong made up on the spot for licensing issues instead of any actual Kong from an actual movie.
>>8690110Was this your purchase? I actually like the blue better, but this is 2001 Miregoji, not 2000 Miregoji, and I've always hated the ugly neck teeth(??) they slapped on him.
Something something evil Godzilla knockoff with terrible QC issues created by aliens and his name is Necagodzilla
>>8692785Mine was a different listing, but it doesn't seem to show up in the sold listings for some reason. I got one loose without bag/header card for 8k
>>8689120Imagine being a dead end.
>>8692411I legit forgot this existed because of how overpriced it was. The Diamond Select figure moves just as well and is so much cheaper.
>>8692899>The Diamond Select figureWhat, this thing? He looks good, sure, but he's 8½" tall. That's way too big to fit in with the MonsterArts figures.
Le King Of The Flagships finally arrived. He's quite big with the alternate wings; I seriously doubt I'll have space for Ziggy unless I pose Rathnigger on the ground. Should Deviljho or Lagi happen they are going to be fucking massive.
Hey it’s the faggot again, my big gay partner managed to haggle down this GMK MonsterArts MINT in box to $100 and now our plastic lizard collection is getting too big for the shelf.
>>8694682I’m retarded and forgot to attach photo
>>8694115If I actually cared for Monhun I would love the...Narg bat guy thing. The lack of interesting Godzilla releases got me thirsty. Actually did get myself KG2019 but he feels more like an overglorified statue than a Monsterarts you can fuck with>>8694682Good job, suck his dick. GMK has flaws but it's still a cool figure
>>8694682>plastic lizard collection is getting too big for the shelfIs that a penis joke?
>>8694115>>8694692I think that Ghidorah looks like shit other than the wings but I'm not here to make people feel bad about selling kidneys for toys you can't play with. It's so utterly lifeless, though (wings aside, again). That little chibi Ghidorah next to him has more personality.
>>8694692Monster Hunter is the only other franchise that approaches my Godzilla autism. SH has me wrapped around their fucking finger.>>8694876This post was referring to Rathalos but go off buddy. Also:>180 USD>selling a kidney tierThat's chump change bro, I would simply stop being poor. Shogun Warriors Rodan, now there's a kidney level toy.
>>8687903>goldmines of Godzilla stuffIf by gold you mean entry level trash
>>8687903I will say in case you don't already know, that Gashapon 98 Zilla is a bootleg.
>>8695018Yeah we got it at one of those cheap specialty stores where it’s all AliExpress bootlegs. We just wanted Zilla representation since we were just starting our collection and he’s one of my favorites.
>>8694876>about selling kidneys for toys you can't play with.I only spent about 13.5k yen for him pre-owned, not a big deal at all. I actually like how he looks, but he can definitely be improved in the paint area. I got no regrets whatsoever for what I've paid for him.Planning on repainting at least his mouth so it's less overly pink.
What are some good insect kaiju figures that aren't Mothras?
>>8696267Mantises are my favorite insects so Kamacuras is my go to but his design is pretty simple (regular mantis with spikes on its back)
>>8696337Mine too. I'll add his SHMA to my-oh. Well they'd better get on that.
>>8696267Spiders are pretty easy to come by.
>>8696267They're technically not kaiju, but the Revoltech/Revogeo figures look pretty nice, especially alongside the MonsterArts. I think they're working on a mantis next.
>>8696959I absolutely love these. Can't wait for that mantiis.
>>8696962Same. My Godzilla kaiju need a mantis to fight.
They're also doing a stag beetle apparently.
When you realize that the Destoroyah Evolution Set pictured here is actually another SPECIAL COLOR VERSION yet to be released.
>>8697737It'd be nice if they came out with a larger Aggregate Destoroyah that was in scale with the adult Heisei Godzilla. The detail and articulation on that would be beautiful.
>>8676054Here is the pic of Gyaos. Looks better than the original imo.
>>8700017>>8676054And here is the pic of Legion. I think it looks better too. They didn't do a whole lot different with this one compared to Gyaos, except the paint is different.
>>8700017Doesn't look that great to be honest. The old 8 inch version has a much nicer sculpt, even if it is a little thick.>>8700020This, however, is a vast improvement in terms of paint. Hopefully it'll be bigger than the old one.
>>8700017>>8700020Are they up anywhere?
>>8676054I wish they would do an Ultraman for the anime series, the design of Ultraman in that is sweet, also I'll take both versions of Gridman too.
>>8694695Had the opportunity to get this for 120 bucks, I didn't. Did I miss out big time?
>>8700775Maybe a little. The most common prices we saw were around $150-$180 but every once in a while you’ll find them on eBay for less. The atomic breath version (same model but spines and mouth are blue) goes for around what you were offered if not cheaper.
>>8689474Came in today. It's bigger than I expected, a little smaller than a Neca. Easily my favorite Godzilla figure by far. My favorite ones are always the silly ones with bright colors that were made to be sold at one event or something. Sometimes you just get tired of gray Godzillas.
>>8700775Not really, he was selling for 40 on Amazon during last years black Friday.
RELEASE DATE GOT BROUGHT FORWARDMARCH 26thIT'S FUCKING TIME LADS
>>8701658holy shit LOL and no trailer wtf!
>>8701745No theaters open either unfortunately. Not sure they'll even be open by the time the movie's out. I imagine lockdown will only get more serious by that time since tons of retards are going to be traveling for spring break and getting the coof like last year.
Does anyone have a SKU for the warbat figure?
>>8701869Reminder that every leak that gave that creature a name or treated it as a singular character has been debunked (that's all of them)
Are MonHun figs allowed here?
>>8701970>as a singular characterIt could be that only one ever shows up, and some throwaway line references more somewhere else. I wouldn't say debunked yet.
>>8701982ZIGGY FUNKO SPOTTED.
What are these rumors about a NECA animated Kong?
>>8702426It was a gift from a friend who didn't know any better.
>>8702741It was on a leaked list of things that have all since come true. The Toony Terrors Grady Twins, etc. So it's just a thing we're waiting to see a pic of right now.
>>8702005Yo what T rex is that?
>>8702897I think it's the Revoltech from a few years back. Shit's rare and expensive now.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osf0Wg8eWYM&feature=emb_logoMore footage. Kong's roar kinda reminds me of the one he had in the '76 one.
>>8702897>>8702966it's one of the Mattel Jurassic World T-rexes with a custom paintjob. The revoltech is way tinier than the one in that pic
I got this Godzilla Humidifier today.
>>8701658man i hope monsterarts reveals a whole lot of shit now. it'd explain the huge gap in their release schedule for godzilla shit
>>8702973>literally 2 secondsI can't wait for WB to go bankrupt
>>8703230Just three monster reveals for SHMA. I think you all could guess fairly easy.
>>8703115Oh my God it's glorious. I saw that on BBTS and wanted to order it...
>>8703115I've given that to a nephew and a niece and its adorable. Ironically though as a figure collector I need as little humidity as possible
>>8703690>Big Bad Tax StoreBuy anywhere else
>>8703720>as a figure collector I need as little humidity as possibleWhy is that?
>>8701153Glad you were able to score him anon. I agree about the repaints and crazy color versions too
>>8703777Humidity tends to be bad for figures long term. Can cause plasticizer leakage and mold. Its why so many people recommend keeping a dehumidifier or keeping your toys in a cold, dry environment to keep them lasting longer.
>>8703783That makes sense. Hadn't considered that. Too preoccupied with how my primary residence somehow accumulates dust far more rapidly than anywhere else I stay.
>>8703783Oooh, you collect boxed figures. I was like "how can a humidifier cause plasticizing to an open figure?" It really wont humidity a room that well but it looks and sounds cool.
>>8703687You mean Biollante, BioGoji (both basically remolds) and Zinogre? Man I wonder how they'd do a GvK Goji, he looks a bit different but I already have a KotM Goji, fuck me I guess. Also FinalWars Gojij when
>>8703775Oh hey, you're an idiot.
>>8704984Godzilla 2021, kong 2021, and something else from the movie probably.
>>8704996>Don't buy from here, they have a huge tax nowhere else applies to your orders that they give to Youtubers and other parasites>You're an idiotAlright
