(Im)patiently for SHMA Mechagodzilla editionLast >>8888235
>>8899959And you are completely wrong about that.
Here's your Rodan, bro.
>>8900164KOTM Rodan is still the sexiest.
I hope Mecha is taller like in the movie. Probably won’t have rocket fire effects but hopefully the pods. Hope it has the death laser. Probably won’t have the booster effects. Big want is an “alternate head” which is the sub zero fatality head for Kong to hold
>>8899978>>8900113It's X-Plus/PLEX, he seems to be pretty wide:Height:approx.25㎝、Width:approx.56㎝、Depth:approx.21㎝
>>8900115Love that OmniViewer dude. Just the right amount of awkwardness and confidence, and he seems to really know his stuff and can be quite funny at times. Would love to chat Kaiju with him.
>>8900171>>8900190>>8900207Report and move on
>>8900164Any good places to watch SP?
If Neca still had the license I guarantee they would have made a Kong "snow repaint". And probably Neon repaints for HK scenes.
>>8900493And that'd be great, because the Hong Kong scene was amazing. I would gladly have bought them. You act like MA won't be doing the exact same thing.
>>8900149Who want this shit?
>>8900512Me. Hope he comes with rockets and laser beam effects for Godzilla-thrashing action.
>>8900493NECA above all else was excellent when it came to unique repaints
>>8900522Fuck off back to /tv/
>>8900573>WAAAAAH I CAN'T STAND WEBMS OF THE SOURCE CONTENT FOR TOYSYou OK bro?
>>8900578Take your meds.
>>8900512Everyone who liked the design? What a dumbass thing to say, just because you don't like it doesn't mean everyone else does.
>>8900586>getting visibly angry at clips of a relevant movieMaybe you should take your meds?
Just a heads up for those interested: Deforeal Rhedosaurus has its page up on Shonen-Ric, but its not available for sale yet. That must mean its going to be up for pre-order soon I'm guessing.>>8899851Unless your kidding, I want the Singular Point one. They really did KotM Rodan a dirty with that MMS. I guess they were trying to imitate older Rodan figures, but the execution seemed strange to me.>>8899948I have no idea. Japan is getting a new episode weekly I believe, and then sometime later this year the other countries will get it on Netflix too.
>>8900522Seeing this mechaG fight ghidorah would have been amazing.
>>8900592Not that anon. Not angry. You're not subtle. Take your meds.
Just spent $31 for 6" MechaG on eBay. I feel like a cunt for paying 300% markup, but I'll never find the toy in any of my Walmarts. I just hope they still have Goji, Kong, Skullcrawlers, and Warbats when I go shopping tomorrow.
>>8900608SP is aring WEEKLY, first on netflix, then the same episode on regular tv. It'll take a full season to air all episodes. Then some other six months for it to be released globally on netflix. Someone from /a/ is doing subs for the released episodes in the meantime, check the usual place
>>8900522not a fan of all the smoke, it muddies things
>>8900629>webms from godzilla movies upset meOk you weird fuck.
I miss him, bros.
>>8900608Nice, love me some deforeal
>>8900763Are they worth the price? I'm really interested in some of the figures, but I've always been put off by expensive sofubi.
Any of you lads have the bootleg special color ver. ghidorah? He's looking mighty tempting but I want to hear some anons opinions
why didn't they bring back Bear McCreary to do the soundtrack for GvK? the soundtrack is so shit in this movie
>>8901001It's so wild that all 4 of the movies in this series all feel so disjointed and separated. They get nobody to return and they feel so different because of it
>>8900955What a sad life you must live. All you seem to do is insult people on this board for not agreeing with you it's pretty hilarious actually.
>>8901001The KOTM soundtrack is pretty stellar.
Zero days have gone by since the last pointless slapfight.
>>8901001He said he was working on other stuff and didnt have time to do gvk.
>>8900164every day we stray further from Godzilla
>>8900774Why so ass-chapped?
>>8901001The Godzilla theme was he best of the American films so far, but the rest of the OST wasn't super memorable.
>>8900807Imo yes but it's literally what you see is what you get. The aftermarket for them is fucking ridiculous too. I enjoy mine though
>>8901674Cute. I might have to grab some. I'm used to paying more money for anime figures, and I enjoy toku way more than anime, so there's no reason not to start buying some.
>>8900164Still more interesting looking than anything Legendary has done
>>8901792>recolor an actual dinosaurWhoah, so interesting.
>>8900164I dont understand why they didnt just go all the way and give him feathers.
>>8901804because Japan isn't run by sensitive and deranged Americans that equate feathered dinosaurs with being trans/gay and if you say dinosaurs with feathers looks stupid it's because you're a transphobe/homophobe.
>>8901803>it's a bird but it's got lavaGround breaking
>>8900164Just a reminder, it seems like what we've seen so far is some sort of unifinished/undeveloped Rodan. It seems like the developed version was shown at the end of Episode 2. That's probaby why all of these died strangely.
>>8901829Is this a real thing you have sources for?
>>8901737>>8901674Different anon here: Yeah I agree with what they said, its literally what you get. Of the few I've got, it's basically 1:1 to the promo pics. No paint issues or molding issues that I can tell. They are also surprisingly light weight and on the smaller side (~5 inches on average). They look great imo though since I'm really into SD Godzilla in general. There are sometimes good deals for older figures in the line on websites like Mandarake, but they sell out quick.
>>8901168oh, the irony
>>8901829They weren't dinosaurs.. flying reptiles had feathers. I just think it looks more like a jurassic park hybrid dinosaur.
>>8901849Not him, and I have no idea about the /pol/ stuff, but there was a bizarre level of asshurt that came from the "I effing love science" crowd when it came out that T.Rex wasn't feathered. I remember Some dino YouTube releasing a like 15 minute video saying that just because the fossilized skin impression showed Rex didn't have feathers on that portion of his body it didn't mean he was featherless. It was so weird how so many of those kinds of people were so upset about it.
>>8901958I mean how often do animals just lose all of its covering? Even whales and dolphins have micro hairs. Trex probably had thin feathers on its body looking something like elephant hair. I doubt they didnt have feathers as babies though. >>8901958
>>8900493I really feel like playmates didn't come out strong with the toy line given how few unique figures they have. I think another company would have taken full advantage of the opportunities provided by Hollow Earth as well as produced a lot more varients of Goji and Kong. I can't believe they didn't make a psycho alligator Goji or a Goji with whipping action or a skyscraper clinging Kong. GvK's toy game is anemic compared to the 2005 King Kong, Jurrassic World movies, or even KotM.
>>8901973Kids don’t play with toys anymore boomer. They play on their iPads and do coke with their live in nanny’s/dad’s girlfriend.
Does anyone know anyone who does custom articulated figures? I got a 68 vinyl figure that's already a little broken in and for cheap so I figured I wouldn't mind if someone chopped it up and made it a custom articulated fig.
>>8900756he was lame
>>8902139Godzilla_154 on Instagram but it doesn't look like he's customized a vinyl in a while.
>>8900807I've had a few of them and I always end of reselling them for full size Xplus stuff. I feel like I'm collecting high end funkos w/ Deforeals. I'd rather put that $100+ towards a full size figure.
>>8902250If I had space for the full size stuff I might get it. I like that my deforeals all fit on my desk and I just think SD stuff is cute
How does the NECA 89' Godzilla scale w/ the Monsterarts Biollante? Debating if it's worth preordering the new one.
>>8902260A little large but it's definitely workable. I don't expect the MA to scale so well itself.
>>8902264Thanks anon. Could you maybe post a pic if you want?
>>8902284>>8902260Nevermind, found one. Looks great to me. I'll probably skip the monsterarts.
>>8900753>>8900754They just gonna pretend an entire race car counts as a tail?
>>8901792The absolute cope of weeboids
>>8902298It looks cool
>>8902294>that head sculpt NECA fans will defend this.
Anons, what are some good options for MFS-3 to fit in with my Monsterarts or NECA?
>>8900807Love Deforeals, very high quality and fit on a shelf nicely. Understand they're pricey, but I'm not able to cop any full-size X-Plus for anywhere near the same price anyway. I like SD stuff too though.
>>8902328Didn't say it was good, all about that anime looks like shit, but it still look better than legendaryshit
>>8902328>weeboidsGodzilla is Japanese anon.
>>8902365Shut the fuck up
>>8902364Looks like a sentai mecha in the late series when they can't figure out to do with all the kibble.
>>8902365yep, looks good
>>8901837Hasn't that always been more or less the case for Rodan?For the legendary universe I feel like the only place to go is up with an alien invasion scenario pitting earth vs alien kaiju plus it's an easy excuse to bring back Rodan, Mothra, the Alpha Muto, and some of the others shown in KotM that got much fan attraction.
>>8900149>mecha king Ghidorah + Kiryu =legendary Godzilla
>>8901958I always thought it was stupid to assume all dinosaurs had feathers just because they discovered some do. Imagine how stupid a brontosaurus or triceratops would look with feathers.
>>8902445It does, it's one of the best out there.
>>8902512Pull the brand war stick out of your ass
>>8902469>>8902512reply to one of my posts again and you'll meet my folded nippon steel
>>8902445Looks unironically horrible. Just awful. Imagine looking at this picture and thinking 'uh huh, looks great, this'll show em'.
>>8902445I like the trendmasters sculpt better.
>>8902392Fuck I wish I had a shin deforeal. So cool. Anyone have an extra they wanna sell?
>>8902143Well you’re a nigger!
Nice to see biogoji SHMA for the same price as HLJ but without the ridiculous shipping costs. I don't mind waiting a month to save on shipping
>>8900807If you can get it for retail, yes. Theyre also a lot bigger than I was expecting too.
>>8902521>>8902534samefagging aside, that's a rad pic man, well done. I want to get a tiny guitar for my 54, and some machine guns as well.
Which one of you absolute faggots broke your containment and is shitting up the DC thread? Stop it.
>>8902445Fuck that's bad
>>8902617that other guy isn't actually me, but thanks. G89's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but I think he's fun
>>8900493I would buy snowy kong in a heartbeat.
>>8902298I see no problem with this
>>8902716Looks like a child friendly interruption of Heisei Goji, though plan on customizing mine a bit.
>>8902617There's no samefagging going on, dumbass.
>>8900149Just watched the movie. He went down like a chump. Not gonna buy.
>>8903141That's a funny way of saying he made both Godzilla and Kong his bitch.
>>8903163>made both Godzilla and Kong his bitch.Pfft. All it took was one magic glowing axe to reduce him to slag. And there were, like, four of them down in hollow earth.
>>8903180Did it show other axes down there? I’ve seen the movie 3 times in theaters now and haven’t noticed that. I love this movie despite its shortcomings
>>8903180Pretty sure that same axe could kill any monster in the Monsterverse.
>>8903222Godzilla took it right to the face and survived. Though considering it's part of his race, that might be why more so than any durability.
>>8903235That was a bullshit plot-armor moment it didn't actually make contact with his skull and there was some stupid explosion.You must not have been paying attention when he got it jammed straight into his thigh earlier.
>>8903202>Did it show other axes down there? I’ve seen the movie 3 times in theaters now and haven’t noticed that.There were multiple axes on the floor of the chamber but they blend in amongst the rocky texture and debris.
>>8903132The pic speaks for itself.
>>8903180He was stylin on both of em before those shitty kids team pour liquor on his satellite server or some shit.Kinda don't like his design either from the leaks prior but he does look good in motion.
>>8903141>Went down like a chumpBig words coming from a G-fag.
>>8903265That it's a great Bio-Goji, yes. We know.
>>8903279Then why are you acting so insecure?
>>8903235>Godzilla took it right to the face and survived. Though considering it's part of his race, that might be why more so than any durability.Nope. The axe didn't make contact with Godzilla's head. The axe was being charged when Kong was using the axe as a shield against Godzilla's atomic fire. When Kong tried to bring it down on Godzilla's head, the axe was already super saturated with energy when it came into contact with the most intense part of Godzilla's atomic breath, just in front of his mouth. The axe overloaded and explosively released its stored energy.
>>8903285Why are you trying to brandwar?
>>8903292Posting a comparison pic isn't doing that. Not my problem if it upset you.
>>8903279>>8903292NECAnon, you are increasingly easy to spot by the way you speak. Kill yourself.
>>8903292But you do that any time SHMA is mentioned, NECAtranny
>>8903307>>8903324You fags need to get the sticks out of your asses and quit trying to brandwar every goddamn thread.
>>8902392Howard the Duck Monsterarts when?
>>8903276MechaG's claw hands are full of spinning saw-blades.Neat.
>>8903383I didn't even notice that. Ouch.
Im not sure Ill get a MechaG figure, I liked the movie a lot and he looked good in motion, but he also kinda reminded me of live-action Transformers
Deforeal anons: Did I get all the Godzilla ones? I think I did, can't tell if I missed anyone though. Should I add Gamera too? Same for Harryhousen monsters? I'm going to add a key later for marking Ric exclusive ones, etc. I'm the same anon that started the original Marvel Legends checklist.>>8903276Man I can't wait to see the movie.
Do you think Bandai Spirits Ichibansho will make any other MonsterVerse figures in this scale? I'd love a Kong, and I'd like a Mechagodzilla. Or really any other MonserVerse creature to this scale so he's screaming at something.
>>8903433I doubt it. Not unless those sold like gangbusters.
>>8903345>an actual (NECA)tranny calling other people fags top kek
>>8903391I didn't like that aesthetic either, but if you still like the design and the figure is good I don't see the issueI don't like Bayformers but I have a few 3Ps because they were good figs and look cool
Friends, what is best king monke? Neca, Mezco or upcoming SHF? Also it says SHF is 5.7", a monkelet. Is this typical for SHF?
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I just might be buying a Funko POP. I think it would make a good work desk buddy. It's lonely in the classroom with distance teaching.
>>8903460For whatever reason I feel like those GvK ones are gonna be hard to find. They're already getting scalped on eBay.
>>8903460Get whatever makes you happy anon. I hate funko pops but that one looks better than many
>>8903460There's a lot of cool Funko Pops, it's just that they're all monsters unsurprisingly.
>>8903462I think you're right. It's easy enough to pre-order Kong, but I don't want that one. I'm hoping I'll be able to just walk into the store and find the 10" one.
>>8903460Ngl, I want to get one of these too.
>>8903437Really? Dang, that's a shame. Hopefully it does well, then.
>>8901829Is this an actual thing or is it just /pol/ being /pol/?
>>8903120honestly if the eyes were changed and the teeth were done better the NECA would be a good budget alternative
>>8901829I'm happy that I'm blissfully unaware of what you're talking about. I know that I hate liberals, fags, and trannies though.
movie had too much kong not enough zilla, also mecha's head design looks pretty bad
>>8903533>movie had too much kong not enough zillaand that's a good thing
>>8903533Zilla isn't in this movie.
>>8903542i am a casual who has only seen the recent legendary stuff and shin, didn't know zilla was a name people used for 1998 lol
>>8903556>casual You have no place criticizing this pure kino then, FAGGOT
>>8903578pure kino? it was a fun movie but pretty shitty compared to king of the monsters
>>8903556>>8903542I am of probably the small minority that calls the 1998 monster as Godzilla, the son of 1998 Godzilla as Godzilla Jr., and the 1998 Godzilla iteration in Final Wars as Zilla. To me, the Final Wars characters are their own seperate iterations completely detached from the past movies. For example, FW Gigan =/= 1972 Gigan, just like FW Zilla =/= 1998 Godzilla.
>>8903581Nah. It was better than kom. Kom was trying to do too much in it's run time and just cramming in as many kaiju sequences as possible. GvK at least had good plot pacing. It's only real failing is needing to have seen the previous movies to understand some of the plot. Kino movies should be enjoyable stand-alone.
>>8900954>bootlegI have the Showa Ghidorah. You talking about that or KotM?Short of it is, it's really fiddly. But for a bootleg, it's not bad. Pretty good for the price. Not 3rd Party Transformers good but good enough if you're paying like, 40% of the original retail, and getting 80% of the quality.
>>8903632This ain't the hill I'm going to die on, but the 1998 Godzilla is still called Godzilla in the copyright claims by Toho as of 2013 and onwards. If you want more, you can check out:https://the-american-godzilla.fandom.com/wiki/The_Godzilla_and_Zilla_Debate
>>8903418I don't immediately see anything missing, but I'd personally prefer the list in release order rather than film order. Plus, I think it'd be easier for you to maintain the list. Either way, I appreciate the effort. Any chance you'll do the Kamen Rider Deforeals as well?
>>8903680That's a good suggestion, especially for future proofing it. I may try doing that next, but group them by year or something (months may be to confusing with things being delayed, etc.), thanks!I don't think I'll add Kamen Rider stuff, mostly because I'm not familiar with the show or characters (as much as I'd like to be). I'm definetly going to add Gamera and Ray Harryhousen stuff next though.
>>8903460Honestly, a lot of the Funko pop figures where they're working with non-human or helmeted characters look fine.
>>8900493They never had the license for monsterverse kongback when Skull Island was out when they had the Godzilla license they didn't have legendary kong rights.
>>8903692>>8903418Updated it. I hope this helps anons out there. Feel free to use the info. or ask for more clarification. Please correct me if I'm wrong on anything too (I'm sure I missed something or have a typo or two).All I ask is to not repost this pic. outside of /toy/ please.
>>8903964Looks great, thanks anon
>>8900756I just saw the movie, but did Goji kill/eat all the other Kaiju? And what happened to Greenpea- I mean the eco-terrorists from the last movie?
>>8904014I've got a hunch that Behemoth and friends may get off'd in the GvK prequel comic 'Godzilla: Dominion'.
>>8904014They all bowed to him. They have no reason to fight since they're scared of Godzilla, and they lived there before Godzilla became the King. Godzilla senses Kong because he's a foreign body and needs to go check it out to see what he's sensing.
>>8904082The opening credits montage of GvK actually shows that Godzilla and Kong killed all the other monsters (yes including Mothra. It presents itself like a fight bracket, and every single other monster picture is crossed out and says deceased.
>>8903761Thanks for that stirring shitpost. Now kill yourself.
>>8904014>>8904179>killed all the other monstersNo it doesn't it say they were killed except for a couple notable exceptions, just that they were defeated. Rodan's braket explicitly shows him being defeated by Ghidorah before Ghidorah advances to be defeated by Godzilla. Rodan wasn't killed by Ghidorah in the previous movie he just jobbed and became Starscream and then jobbed to Mothra. The Female Muto and the Skull Crawler have deceased in their profile under their "scientific names".
>>8904196>caught samfagging >no, u shitposting!fuck off necatranny>>8904225Looks great, yes, and?
Okay, after going all over the city it looks like I'm giving up on Playmates from Walmart. Are any of the figures remotely essential? I've already ordered a scalped 6" MechaG. I'll probably get two Warbats and a Skullcrawler and call it a day, as Bandai is doing a Movie Monsters Series Kong and would likely do MechaG. My only issue is whether or not we'll get a Bandai Goji with glowing fins and eyes. I already PO'd the SHMA Kong and Goji anyway.
>>8903627>GvK at least had good plot pacingI love the movie, but what the hell are you on about? It's like Wingard fast-forwarded through all the human stuff to get to the climax faster, and as a result there's simply no reason for Ren to be named Serizawa, among other issues.
>>8904341>I've already ordered a scalped 6" MechaG.How much is dude even supposed to be? I'm tempted to get one and start on a custom, it's way too much now.
>>8900493Kong is public domain, so they can still do more repaints of their existing Kong figure. The first repaint looks pretty good in person, but I don’t know if I want to buy it when I already have the original.
Anyone see anguirus in the hollow earth? Eating the tiny destroyah crabs?
>>8904424I thought that was Minilla
>>8902445>obvious paint mishaps even in promo picsVery sad
>>8904446Should I be flattered that you think my shitty desk pics are promo pics?
>>8904452Those are pretty damn good
>>8903679Yeah you shouldn’t die on that hill, because it is a fight you are gonna lose.
>>8904472That's only seen when they use the Final Wars iteration.
>>8902364>>8902294>>8900754>>8900753Does Dymazenon even count as on topic if we’re talking about the Mech as opposed to the Kaiju?Sauce: https://mobile.twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181080734306304
>>8904487They didn’t reup the 98 emblem trademark and he ha so my been referred to as Zilla and marked with said trademark. Unless you can find a Toho approved product other than the 98 movie merch and packaging that uses the trademark referring to him as Godzilla...he is no longer of that trademark.
>>8904506Jesus Christ auto correct. Fuck it...you are wrong but I look like a tard with my spelling.
SHMA kong pre-orders are capped on Amazon and Awesome Collector and Goji pre-orders are capped on Amazon.
>>890450I haven o idea what spelling mistake you made, but I'd say >>8903679 is proof. What are your thoughts on that? I mean, it's not the picture icon like you showed, and I'd argue you have a good point since they didn't re-use his icon picture again. I think we're both a little bit right since Toho treats him so weirdly with copyright and naming. They even refer to the baby as Godzilla in the anime, and then use GODZILLA and Zilla (especially in Matt Frank's comics), and Gojira (1998), and whatnot. The latest merch. refers to him Godzilla (1998) so I go with that by default. I don't know, lets just say we're both right in our own ways. Like you and I said, not the hill to die on. Not worth our energy arguing over semantics that even Toho doesn't seem to be sure of.
Did they ever make a good Ghidorah figure that doesn't cost like $400 (either original 60's or Legendary's)? Also, same question for the original 60's Mechagodzilla
>>8904497That Kaiju (Episode 1) is called Sharbandes (シャルバンデス) BTW.Also that account has a few other key-frame/process animations from the episode’s fight:https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181030926946306https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181136375980032https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181247646588930https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181359580053505https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181437615009792https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181534180515843https://twitter.com/trigger_inc/status/1378184589982588933(Unfortunately the neck stretch animation was not amongst those. That was a pretty cool and somewhat surprising moment.)
>>8904517Thankfully I got in already. Lots of people probably getting in now that the movie is out or scalpers are being shitheads again.
>>8904506Look at the Deforeal, faggot. It's marketed as Godzilla 1998. BTFO
>>8904549Articulated? HC Toys third party on ebaySofubi? Gigabrain or Marmit
>>8904553>https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181136375980032Wow that building collapse animation is shit though. They just rolled the building on its side and sank it down.
>>8904517They stopped preorders?
>>8904517I got my Godzilla pre-order in on BBTS earlier. The figure looks sick.
>>8904517Did this happen in 2019?
>>8903501The eyes are a pretty easy fix though, literally can just buy some walmart paints and a fine tip paintbrush
>>8904559I'm glad that I pre-ordered them as soon as they went up. I'm really not surprised by it given that people have been wanting a Kong figure since Skull Island, and GvK is shaping up to be a financial and critical success.>>8904623yeah.Amazon has Goji and Kong-listed as temporarily out of stock.AC has Kong as pre-order capped, but Goji is still available.Goji is still up on amiami but Kong is listed as pre-orders closed and so is their pack that comes with both.Looks like they're both still up on BBTS.>>8904637not sure, I wasn't really paying attention at the time, because I was an unemployed college student
>>8904446>paint mishapsNo, what's sad is your stupid bitching and making shit up.
>>8900648I feel you. I keep going back and forth on whether it's worth it to get it at those prices. $30 isn't too bad to me, but I feel like I can try to wait a little more. Hopefully.
>>8904757Stop being so fragile Necanon.
>>8900648I know how you feel. I spent $25 on the Skull Crawler because I'm sure SHMA will never make one. But It still feels retarded to be paying that much for such a cheap figure. I'm gonna wait for MechaG though because that 30 bucks could go to the SHMA MechaG.

>>8903964>https://twitter.com/graphinica/status/1378181030926946306damn shame half of these are unobtainable at this point for a somewhat ok price.
>>8900807>>8901674Deforeals have the worst aftermarket of any of the Godzilla toys proportionally. This shit is inexcusable. >>8902615I would sell an organ for this, though. Miregoji best goji.
>>8903627>It's only real failing is needing to have seen the previous movies to understand some of the plot.It went out of its way to detach itself from King of the Monsters after it flopped. The people who had Kevin's head don't even have anything to do with the group from KotM shown with it after the credits.
>>8902468Nobody is just blindly assuming they all had feathers. I swear the 'anti feather' people on this board get more retarded every post.
>>8905021This makes me glad to hear because outside of the actual battles KOM was dogshit.
>>8901435The music that played when Goji and Kong were squaring up on the aircraft carrier was pretty good too.
>>8900170>Big want is an “alternate head” which is the sub zero fatality head for Kong to holdI could see that coming as an extra with a rerelease of Kong where he has the scratches from the Hong Kong fight
>>8904014>but did Goji kill/eat all the other Kaiju?Only the Mutos and Ghidorah, he killed the Mutos since they’re his natural predators so he had to get rid of them, and Ghidorah was too much of a problem not to. Everything else he’d rather rule
>>8905178I really do hope they follow Playmates and make some neon hong kong repaints
>>8905184Have SH done any minor repaints (specific to scenes) though? I know they’ve done different forms and stuff
>>8902445Ugly, ugly, very ugly.
>>8905210Yes actually. Their initial Heisei Mothra was just basic daytime colors, but when they did the special color variant, babby Mothra was painted to look wet, as during the ocean fight, and Mothra Imago was painted with the night light colors. Same gimmick with their Battra rereleases iirc.
>>8905210This >>8905303 and they did a repaint of their 1964 Godzilla to make him look like he was covered in sand from his "emergence" scene.
>>8903964Woah, any info on those upcoming ones? Not seen anything purple Hedorah onwards
>>8905017Good thing they're making another one
>>8900149I really like these 3.5 inch godzilla figures that were sold in boxes about a year ago. Is there any more like these figures in another series?
>>8900573>bad design! Stop talking about robot I not like!!!!
>>8901837>t-rex with stegosaur platesIf only modern designers were capable of such genius.
>>8902437It being from Japan doesnt mean that every man is a weeb, weeboid.
>>8904670You underestimate how few people have a steady hand for painting tiny details like that.I can't do it either.
>>8900648>>8904341What's the deal with Walmart? I've been to some eight stores and they're all out of stock. Are scalpers bulking out everything, or does Playmates just suck that bad at distribution?
>>8900164They should have kept the vivid colors. He looks really underwhelming in comparison. I still can't gt past the cheap looking CG in the first place. I don't see what there is to gain from taking a primarily tokusatsu property and reducing it to animation, let alone shoestring budget modern day animation. I barely tolerate Weta-level CG in the Legendary movies. Godzilla has always been a physical medium to me. There's something so artless and flaccid about drawn kaiju.
>>8905705I somehow doubt scalpers are all over the illustrious Pureimeitusu line of figures, despite their reputation for 1:1 screen accuracy and being the highest quality articulated figures on the market today.
>>8900164This is just a Quetzalcoatlus painted red.
>>8905795Which is a more appealing design than every Rodan sans the KotM Rodan.
>>8905775Meant for >>8901842
>>8901674I'm still shocked that the Gamera coin ones are nonexistent on the second hand market. Have the 1966 and Barugon ones in storage and can't imagine what they go for nowadays.
>>8905775>I don't see what there is to gain from taking a primarily tokusatsu property and reducing it to animationThey're trying to get normalfags/animefags hooked on the franchise.>>8905790Nope. My normalfag friends who have turned into scalping faggots recently are aware of the markup on GvK toys.
I'm tired of the Walmarts in the Midwest not stocking the Playmates GvK stuff. I'm so fucking glad I snagged an 11" MechaG off of the website when I did. These fucking scalper prices are insane. Fucking Walmart.
>>8906035The toy doesn't even look very good. This is like something made for 4 year olds. I get spending $70 for an S.H. Monsterarts, but this doesn't even look like it's worth $8. Anyone paying those insane prices, or hell even wanting it to begin with, should reevaluate their lives.
>>8906048Truth. Unfortunately, a Monsterarts Mechagodzilla is far from guaranteed.
>>8906107You're crazy if you think that. Mechagodzilla gets toys.
>>8906111Then where is it?
>>8900609But, this mechazilla is Ghidorah.
>>8905347>>8905741Pre-order sold out (despite not making any sense) on BBTS. What now?
>>8906132Pretty obviously a situation where they didn't want the toy to leak and spoil the reveal (obviously the movie being delayed was not factored into that nor that the other toys would leak). Just bad planning all around I would assume.
>>8906180This is preposterous. They're as cheap looking as you can get.
>>8906048I've noticed godzilla fans have a pretty unique sense of FOMO where they'll buy any garbage toy as long as it's of a monster they think won't get any other figures.
>>8906203Yeah, I'm noticing that too. I guess I'm used to some very different quality standards and expectations for any given price coming from primarily collecting Star Wars stuff.
I’m really liking Godzilla SP so far, love the character design and little Easter eggs
>>8906220A shame it has the worst Godzilla design ever put out. It was not only designed, but approved. I'm speechless.
>wEeBoIdS wEeBoIdS wEeBoIdS!!!
>>8905800Only if your taste is utter shit
>>8906220Far superior than legendary fatzilla
>>8901674I'm glad I'm not the only person on Earth who likes Spacegodzilla. Really sick of these being scalped and then all the reissue preorders somehow selling out despite the entire purpose of preorders being to estimate how many to sell. Feels like I'm taking crazy pills.
>>8905600pop culture from japan is unavoidably weeb>>8906240onions
>>8905592>godzilla is a dog, no, an eagleFantastic, as usual from clueless americans
Why is the Godzilla aftermarket the way it is? No other toy property suffers like this, despite living in the age of scalpers. Godzilla is about as unpopular and niche as a universally recognized name can get. It doesn't make sense.
>>8906272Simply not true. I love Godzilla but I hate weeb trash. And the Godzilla stuff that leans into being weeb like Final Wars is genuinely fucking awful.
>>8906228I say the same thing about MonsterVerse Mecha. I do not believe Toho signed off on that.
>>8906277It’s fans are largely high functioning austists who have well paying jobs as opposed to Sonic and Transformers fans who live off of neetbux
>>8900164Why does he look like a disgruntled chihuahua?
>>8905931>They're trying to get normalfags/animefags hooked on the franchise.If they wanted to do that, they'd just put out a kaiju gijinka gacha game. It's a good thing Toho are dinosaurs themselves and aren't even capable of coming close to figuring out what the unwashed masses want.
>>8900493So what are the chances of getting Rampage 2?
>>8906324It's not even the worst Mecha design.
>>8906220Same here. The Jaws reference made me giggle. That ending is pure fan service, especially the Zone Fighter reference.
>>8906220It would have been better without the Godzilla brand.
>>8906396>That ending is pure fan serviceThe Heisei Godzilla they show made me even madder about the basedfaced parody we're getting in the show.
>>8906420Eh, I think SP Godzilla looks pretty good. Not my favorite Godzilla design, yet I appreciate the differnet approach.
>>8906446I think it's a theme they're going for with trying to make the kaiju look like old Japanese folklore art and stuff. Godzilla's very clearly meant to inspire an oni.
>>8906446It looks like a mix of every Godzilla design
>>8906457The fish design is better looking than >>8906446and if they wanted him to look like an oni, he should look like he drinks sake, not soilent
Godzilla and Donald Duck have the same personalityI'm high as balls but I need you to know this
>>8906465They're using the fish for Manda.
>>8906482That looks like a cool design but I don't know if Manda fans are going to feel like Manda's here in thatAll, what, 2 of them, maybe?
>>8906482It looks like it has human teeth, like that one fish that does, for some godforsaken reason. Love it.
>>8904517>not preordering on BBTS so you can see if the figure is actually good before it shipsthem being snail mail slow really helps with shit like this, if these figures end up sucking i can just cancel since they'll get delayed anyway>>8906203yeah, this has always been the case in this fandom, however typically with characters that are more unpopular with mass markets like minya, gorosaurus, etc. this mechagodzilla will absolutely get a SHMA which will be cool as fuck
>>8906533>paying 30% more for bbts taxNah. I'm sure they will be fine, and if not, I can just sell for more than I paid anyway.
>>8906533Is there a trick to making BBTS have an item that is out of stock? Some sort of glitch or exploit?
X-Plus KOTM Rodan looks awful. Lord.
>>8906132Bandai definitely has one on the wings and could announce it as early as this month. It will most likely a web exclusive so prepare to pay those middleman prices and rape shipping.
>>8906552I don't get the X-Plus hype. They're just paperweights that cost a house payment.
>>8906546even paying 30% more i'd still make a metric fuckton of profit once they're all gone
>>8906598They're basically something between modern versions of old school vinyls(but much more screen accurate) and pre-made model kits(in-fact most X-plus figures were initially model kits, and the way they are produced is effectively mass produced kits) They're big, they look great, they fill a niche nothing else fills. Unlike proper statues they're less delicate and dare-I-say, ore playable. X-plus are pretty light weight so you can stomp them around happily.
>>8906548what? they have the SHMAs in stock
>>8906533>more unpopular with mass marketsThat's Warbat and Skull Crawler alright.
>>8906607Do you work for them? I'm resenting my stingy nature now. But all the ones I'd want are suffering the aftermarket price hike anyway. They go from unwise to dangerous purchases.
>>8906533>Godzilla fans buying Minya merch in droves because of FOMOLoving every laugh
>>8906446That looks genuinely terrible. He's basically the Crimson Chin.
>>8906618He looks like that thing from The Dark Crystal that was a meme before the term was used in that context. I've just realized they only depict him with his mouth open because he legitimately cannot close it. Toho is just letting anyone do whatever they want with their licenses now, huh.
>>8906446I think this design would look better if the thighs and legs weren't so fucking big. Fucking Asylum Demon looking ass
>>8906630BioGoji's thunder thighs look fine. I don't know what they were thinking on any level with this. Looks like a meme edit of a real design.
>>8906598t. NECA enthusiast
>>8906636Try again, projector.
>>8906639I collect XPLUS, faggot. Go back to you garbage NECA collection with a few monsterarts sprinkled in.
>>8906646HE'S A NECA! HE'S A NECA! HE'S A NECA! A NECA! LOOK THERE'S A NECA! YOU CAN TALK YOU CAN TALK YOU CAN TALK!
>>8906261Who doesn't love space godzilla? He looks fucking cool. I definitely overpayed for mine, think I saw one on mandarake the other day for a decent price if your still looking
>>8906614No I just bought a few since I had nothing else to really buy in late 2020 and I got hooked.
>>8906618Yeah, to be fair his lower jaw is strangely out of proportion. From the front it looks weird, but from the sides he doesn't look too bad imo.
>>8906666The monsters in Singular Point all have too many teeth. Ironic, given the title.
>>8906162>they didn't want the toy to leak and spoil the revealThis pic was taken a year ago
>>8906695Which of these never came out besides the red back armor Godzilla? Wonder if that was originally in the script.
>>8906709It was almost certainly never in the script and was just a toy gimmick. There were reshoots for the movie, but they were not extensive. IIRC, it was more about changing settings; the final fights originally weren't in Hong Kong.
>>8906630>the thighs and legs weren't so fucking bigbut godzilla has always had thunder thighs. its like people suddenly forget this and became disgusted with big thighs as soon as Godzilla Ultima came out
GvK was as bad movie, but I still had fun with the fan service of it.Can't wait to get my SHMA GvK Kong. I might end up getting the Godzilla since I don't own a legendary Godzilla since monsterverse is lame, but it'll complement my Kong.
>>8906726I don’t doubt you, I just think it’s weird that’s there’s only one gimmick toy if that’s the case.
>>8906753I assumed they were sheepish about trying to sell effectively an identical Godzilla toy after 2019's and then realized it would be fine.
>>8906754Japan's Godzillas have rapidly degenerated into featureless lumps that don't look like anything, let alone a mutated dinosaur.
>>8906741i know godzilla's always had big thighs. but the ones on this new design are so large in comparison to the rest of his body that it throws his proportions out of whack.
>>8906446his face looks so bad when viewed from the front.
>>8906754>everyone says godzilla is too fat nowive got a great idea.
>>8906778As long as he has the characterization, powers, and endurance of the cartoon one, sure
>>8906778Unironically the best design. Senior's movie might be shit but Junior deserves love.
>>8906754I don't think Japanese fans really say that. There were a few jokes, but going off of Pixiv and twitter art GareGoji and DoughGoji are fairly popular designs. It's mostly Americans and South East Asians who have a weird hate boner for the MV design and call it Fatzilla.>>8906778the design is fine, it's just it was used extremely poorly in the movie. Give him his atomic breath and don't treat him like King Kong and he's a good Goji like >>8906781 says
>>8906761>godzilla >featureless lumps >doesnt look like anything
>>8906709Maybe those figures behind the Giant Godzilla, but I'm fairly certain they retooled those into the Battle Roar/X-Treme line. Notice the Battle Roar Kong that fell over between the MechaG and Godzilla.
>>8906781>Godzilla Raids Again in 38 seconds.webm
>>8906804Such a lame movie. Why do people like Anguirus, again?
>>8906785what is the world coming to.
>>8906821because he's good in other movies?
>>8903120The Neca doesn’t look like a bad figure, but it looks like a cartoony version of that design. I’m going with the SHMA.
>>8906859Of course you are, Rich Uncle Pennybags.
>>8906859Kinda reminds me of the Super Godzilla look. Would've been neat if they did a full green one like how he looked in-game instead of the Biollante sap repaint that just gave him a green facial.
>>8906726I've heard from some folks who worked on the movie that it was in one of the drafts and that the movie got retooled significantly.
>>8906844This dead-eyed creepypasta variant of Godzilla is too derivative to be the best Godzilla design. It demands familiarity with a less ferocious looking Godzilla to contextualize itself as a conglomeration of tormented, vengeful spirits. It doesn't speak for itself; it's like an in-universe repaint.
>>8906877it looks like somekind of godzilla mind control device
>>8906871I wish Biollante would squirt on my face.
>>8906869I have no horse in this race, but this post made me crack up. Thank you for the shit post.
>>8906877Folks who actually worked on the movie or 4chan copypasta writers who claimed the Warbat was the World Serpent and the main villain of the movie?
>>8906878>this godzilla design is bad because i created a fantasy world in my head where its the only godzilla to ever exist meaning now there is no context for its menacing redesign.ok?sorry this design exists in the real world where people who saw godzilla 2001 know what godzilla looks like. A hunched neck, fangs and dead eyes are very familiar tropes of a menacing design. you dont have to see other godzillas to pick up on that. Also the design is contextualized in the film? its like saying every godzilla design is bad because the design alone doesn’t convey he has nuclear powers
>>8906911It looks like a bulldog with rabies. 5/10. Best I can do.
>>8905558Nope, they only ever released the one set. Only ever saw them at Target too. Anguirus and Hedorah were the rare ones.
>>8906869man, he cost like half a days pay, just skip out on Starbucks or fast food for a couple of weeks
>>8906900That one's news to me, but the word is the studio was actually planning to kill one of the two titular kaiju off before realizing that it would be a stupid move from a franchising perspective.
what would you say is the likeness we'll get an shma mechagoji? personally I'd like a plamo kit inscale with the rest of the line
>>8907313It's likely but not guaranteed. I'm guessing they're waiting for the movie to come out in Japan since Mechag is supposed to be a big reveal for the audience. It's one of Toho's big characters I think it'd be crazy if he didn't get an shma.
>>8906741Heisei era, Against Mechagodzilla & Monsterverse are the best designs.
