Welcome to the Kaiju General! Monsterverse lives! Previously: >>8900149 Archive:https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/search/subject/Kaiju%20General%20/
>>8907365>That picDo people itt really buy that crap?
>>8907376That crap has been poached and scalped for Monsterarts prices. Every Walmart in the country is barren because of this. If people aren't buying it, there's enough egg on faces there for endless omelettes.
>>8907376As opposed to what, statues?
>>8907376that Goji is way too big
>>8907376I assure you, good sir, that I purchase X-Plus and X-Plus exclusively, delivered straight to my yacht by helicopter. In fact, by dipping my X-Plus Miregoji in a vat of KY jelly, carefully positioning myself, and praying, I have managed to insert the entire figure into my rectum. I've been hearing faint music that isn't playing from the blood loss, and I think the tail has worked its way into my chest cavity and punctured my lungs, but the adrenochrome is keeping me going.
>>8907376what is it? I wanna look it up
>>8907376He he joke # funny.
>>8907389Uh, a statue would be better than a 3 poa figure that looks like it was painted by a 5 year old, yeah.
Does anyone here have the Yamaguchi Optimus? I want to see what he looks like next to a SHMA Godzilla. It could be fun to have some monsters fight him.
>>8907449Lol @ thirsting for dog-toy quality looking merch.
>>8907430>>8907443Those are adorable
>>8907456anon these are literally budget movie toys that playmates shat out half-sculpted and barely painted, there's nothing soulful about them
>>8907430>>8907443Where can I get these?
Pre-ordering Biogoji from BBTS. Will I be able to change my address if I'm living somewhere else by the time the item ships in September? Just gotta make sure.
>>8907481I think that's what "Pile of Loot" is for, for holding items for later?
>>8904517as a follow-up, pre-orders for GvK Goji are now capped on Awesome Collector. Goji's still up on amiami and both Goji and Kong are still up on BBTS.
I love that people are crying scalpers when in fact the supply is very very low. There's not even that many sellers to maintain that all of the playmates line is essentially being scalped. Playmates just isn't making enough as many have reported not even getting these things in their local stores.
>>8907508>Kong selling more Monstergaps than GojiWho really won?
>>8907487...anon...he already had one...
>>8907532Kong is probably gonna have greater aftermarket value down the line than this version of Goji.On that note, I haven’t PO’d Godzilla but want to to know if he’ll be able to do a quadrupedal stance like in the movie (‘psycho alligator’ as one anon last thread put it). If it can be do e then I’ll get him.
>>8907590It's just a repaint of the 2019 Goji SHMA so you should be able to get an answer.
>>8907427I'd legit buy these
>>8907376>Garethfags will defend this
>>8907387Scalpers who are practically snatching these toys out of little kids' hands are fucking faggots. Walmart should put limits on what one person can buy. I haven't touched the Playmates GvK toys, because I don't want to be the guy who ruins some kid's birthday. People do this shit, and then wonder why these movies struggle to gain popularity. If kids can't have Godzilla and Kong toys, their parents are just going to move onto capeshit or something else to keep them occupied.
Where can I get kaiju scaled buildings for a my shelf?
>>8907873I thought SHMA made a building diorama set a while back.
>>8907924They did, 2 in fact. One with different beams for Godzilla, and one with Heisei-era vehicles. There's also the Figuarts building sets they put out around the time their new Ultraman line was starting up.
>>8907365How much is too much for the SH ShodaiGoji? Pic unrelated.
I get it, it's movie hype. But holy crap every single Playmates pegwarmer in Walmart disappeared like overnight.
>>8908035Good, they're garbage. It's like when the Green Lantern shit finally disappeared...
>>8907524The fact of the matter is this, the movie was supposed to release a year ago. The toys were made back in the end of 2019 and early 2020, so the supply has been sitting for over a year waiting for the movie. Because of that, they likely stopped making them at a certain point because it was just piling up with nowhere to go and in that time I would not be surprised if the company discontinued production on them entirely (meaning they threw out molds and moved on to making other stuff and can't make more). If that is the case, there won't be additional shipments and the "scalping" is just a true scarcity situation.
>>8908053Probably depends where you are anon. I'm in St. Louis, and the only NECA I EVER see anymore are the Kong ones. Been to quite a few Walmarts/Targets, and zero Godzilla NECA
>>8908053Depends where you are. A lot of smaller comic book stores and horror shops and best buys also have neca stuff and might have things the bigger chains don't.
>>8907599Uh...Actually, Kong is going to be my first Monsterarts, so I have no clue about if the KOTM Godzilla can do it.
>>8908120Whats funny is the Godzilla stuff still rings up at Target. I'm very tempted to grab the Mothra someone hid if its still there.
>>8907532People have wanted a Kong since Skull Island came out. With no cheap (in scale) NECA alternative, and with this one coming with a decent amount of accessories for the price, it only made sense that he would sell out faster than Goji who other than having an extra pair of hands appears to just be a repaint of KotM Goji
>>8908288Reddit, please leave.
>>8908138I doubt it dude, his arms are pretty short in comparison to his legs, so it'd be awkward to replicate the CGI in that sense.
>>8907376If they make an electronic Godzilla I might buy that. Everything else I've seen has been an easy pass though
>>8908331You're in luck anon
>>8907553I meant for Showa
Neca 64 or 62 godzilla?
Today's mail call. It's kinda crazy how much better the Gamera movie monster series figures are than the Godzilla ones.
>>8908418>Compares Legion and Gayos to Godziban vinyls for qualityFucking off yourself you don't know what you're talking about.
>>8908435That's the most impressive bust I've ever seen.
>>8908316he's a real big chungus if you know what i mean
>>8908443Not as impressive as your mom's though.
>>8908435>>8908437>>8908440I want this, but I already have enough Godzilla memorabilia to protect my virginity.
>>8908435>>8908437>>8908440Cool but the smaller Godzilla section seems a bit redundant, who is ever going to display that part instead of the giant Godzilla head part?
>>8908413They're the best Neca Godzillas easily. 62 is my favorite because it's my second favorite suit, but I think 64's figure might actually be the better one between them.
Got “Gilgon” for cheap on Mercari. No wonder he couldn’t sell it for nearly a year.
>>8908882Sad thing is I've misspelled stuff before and found more of said item then when I spell it correct.Fuck those assfags that keep listing playmates figures under monsterarts.
>>8908926>>8908882thank god for misspellings, recently got a "desort eagle" bonus weapon for my leon figure in silver because of that.
NorCal is a barren wasteland.
>>8908970Nigga that’s a perfectly good Kong
>>8908988I already have my SHMA Kong on pre-order. I want a couple of warbats, skullcrawlers, and the Hong Kong Goji
>>8909018If they’re not on the shipper, you won’t find them. Those figures were only ever stocked on that shipped and as soon as they were gone, thrown out. None of my Walmart’s that had it have them anymore
>>8908443did you even watch the movie anon??
>>8908053I don't see any godzilla stuff around here anymore, NECA or otherwise.
I picked this up cool colors
2014 Spitfire Godzilla any good? Missed out on an auction earlier today because of work for a good price and I'm kicking myself over it.
>>8909130Jealous. Just got off work and hit a couple of Walmarts here in St. Louis...aaand still nothing. Not even scalpers poaching them, they just never fucking restock. Had to pay scalper prices for a Warbat, and all I really wanted other than that was the smaller MechaG. That's fucking it. JUST RESTOCK THE SHELVES YOU ABSOLUTE FUCKS, I KNOW YOU HAVE THEM IN THE BACK.Maybe I'll just do what retarded Hotwheels scalpers do around here and just waltz into the stockroom and rummage through shit.
What are the best Ghidorah figures? I'm not really impressed with any of the Legendary Ghidorah figures, except for that statue that costs as much as a risky medical procedure.
>>8909209I've seen a few anons talk highly about the bootleg SHMA Showa Ghidorah.
>>8909230Why the fuck does that look so good? And it won't break like a NECA product if you glance at it?
>>8909196>JUST RESTOCK THE SHELVES YOU ABSOLUTE FUCKS, I KNOW YOU HAVE THEM IN THE BACK.Actually, no, we've been through this. This was a movie and merch that was supposed to be out a year ago. They probabaly don't have it in back because it was long ago sent to outlet stores.
Just read Godzilla Dominion. Pretty good, brainlets who were confused by the opening credits for GvK will be happy to know the other titans are alive and well, Godzilla does not kill them. He has some feuds and altercations he has to mediate over. Although, poor Behemoth does get one of his tusks broken off from the new titan "Amhuluk".
>>8909251Do they explain what happened to the eco-terrorists? And how Apex got Ghidora’s head?
>>8909196>I KNOW YOU HAVE THEM IN THE BACKThey really don't. They never do. Why would a store just hold stock back for no reason? Especially when the shelves are already empty.
>>8909196I can’t believe these are getting scalped I saw whole display of them here in New Jersey I only bought this one cause I wanted it but had I known that I would have at least bought kong and mecha now I can’t toy collecting has really become a nightmare
>>8909236Allegedly someone got ahold of an SHMA mold before it came out. Honestly I've only had problems with one NECA Godzilla figure (claws randomly broke off). I have the entire run, and they're all solid, and I haven't had issues. I know other NECA figures are apparently a different story though.>>8909249If true, then how are other anons, and those especially on the Southwest part of the country, finding them in bulk right before and after the movie released?
>>8909280Where would I be able to find one of these bootlegs?
>>8909279I can't wait until the local flea market starts up again. There's a fella there with a booth that always has Godzilla, horror, DBZ type things, with the scalper markup. I bet he'll have these things stocked to the brim. It's shit. I was able to snag a big MechaG, since the bigger ones are usually high-ticket, but holy fuck it's insane how bad it's gotten.
>>8909294I tell you I don’t think I’ve paid retail price for a Star Wars figure in like two years if there’s one I like I don’t even bother looking in stores anymore
>>8909287Just eBay "King Ghidorah SHMA" and look for the ones that say "no box" and are being shipped from China. I'm just assuming those are it.
>>8909257that's explained in the novelization.
>>8909311They are. I wish some were shipped from the US so I didn’t have to wait months.Also, no one take the bait.
>>8909236>And it won't break like a NECA product if you glance at it?That doesn't happen anyway you hamhanded retard.
>>8909280The actual SHMA still hasn't come out, has it? Can't find anything, but Google is shockingly useless these days.
>>8909330You can't even be clever when you troll. How pathetic.
I like to think this is like sex for necanon and the anti-necanon, and they both coom when the thread reaches bump limit.
>>8909388I mean, let's be honest, this entire board is basically the result of what no pussy does to a man. Most given interactions anywhere on 4chan in general are equally as petty, pointless, and hostile because everyone is always taking their sexual frustration out on one another.
>>8909443Pussy is great. It's a deceptively minor aspect of living in spite of what the media and your instincts tell you. If you live for it it will eat away at you and you'll act just like a 4chan incel regardless. It's not what those types are actually missing that makes them that way.
>>8909336>slurp slurp slurp
>>8907747I totally get that and follow very similar rules myself but if there is only one and im out looking for it then i pick it up. With the situation we are in and supply being difficult to maintain i get the one i want most instead of the entire wave for example.
Not a single one of these damn SHMAs or X-Pluses sculpts Godzilla's permanently erect alligator dick. Fuck this hobby.
>>8908418Yeah, my Gamera kinda stands out in size and in paint apps over most of my Godzilla stuff.
>>8908418what's that mechagodzilla
Does anyone have either of the SHMA Godzilla Earths and any Godzilla Neca? Wondering how they scale next to each other since I saw how tiny the 64 SHMA is
>>8909546I actually was just about to ask about SHMA Earth as well. He's decently priced.I have the entire NECA collection. Threw a can up really quick for comparison. Let me know if you want to see any individuals compared. And yes, I know it's fucking dusty.
>>8909566>I have the entire NECA collection.I'm settling down with dinner to see how he replies to this.
>>8909566Thanks man, I don’t think I’ll go for the whole collection but I wanna get the 64 and 85 figures. I’m trying to get an articulated fig of every unique Goji design but I’m autistic and want them be roughly the same scale with each other.
>>8909566I never thought I'd be able to say my dick is Godzilla-sized and be telling the truth.
>>8909576kek. Never really got the NECAzilla hate. I like em well enough, and haven't had any qc issues. Not a NECA fan in general, just a Godzilla one. CANT WE JUST LIKE TOYS BROS WHY MUST WE BRANDFAG
>>8908435I pre-ordered this, and will probably get the Kong one too whenever it's available.
>>8908591I think you're meant to display it in a way where every part of it will be visible, so away from the wall, or on some kind of rotating platform.
>>8909586Here's the 64 and 85 next to a VHS for comparison. 85 is a tad smaller in stature.
>>8909608Appreciate it again! Next time I see a good deal for 85 I’ll probably jump on it.
>>8909590Their Godzilla line (and the one Kong they made) are weirdly stable and reliable toys, unlike everything else. I guess the detractors weren't willing to learn that or give them a chance.
>>8909590I think he was talking about Necanon posting. It's generally agreed that Necazillas are some of their best work. They are all fucking tanks and have little to no QC issues besides a few tight joints here and there. I don't own all of them, how many are there? I just have a few like 5 and I'm happy with them.
>>8909636No problem anon.>>8909546I'll ask again for this anon since I'm still curious: does anyone have the SHMA Earth Goji? How do you like it?
>>8909647Ah I gotcha. They really are great. My good friend collects Back to the Future and other franchises, and he's had nothing but issues with his small neca collection. 24 for the total Godzilla if you count the Rodan and two Mothras, and 26 if you also count the two Kongs. The biggest hit had to be the reactor glow, which was a Loot Crate exclusive.
>>8909668Damn that's a lot of zillas. I have the 54 poster version, Biollante Slime version, vs Mothra and vs Kong and the SOS one. I just want to get a legendary fatzilla next and I'll be happy, maybe a base 54 too.
>>8909694Hopefully you don't have to pay shit aftermarket prices for them. I was lucky enough to snag all except one in-store. I love the 54 and his goofy face. Hey, if you think that's a lot, be thankful you don't collect Aliens or Predator NECA.
>>8909566clean your shelf, dude. that dust is gross
>>8909703I think I'll see how thick a layer I can get.
>>8909257No, this specific one is told from Godzilla's point of view. Just him living and on a small journey.
>>8909443Speak for yourself, incel.
>>8909249>They probabaly don't have it in back because it was long ago sent to outlet stores.weird since I found a whole shipper in a Walmart a couple weeks ago weirdly enough they didn't move and then disappeared out of nowhere tho
>>8909766>weird since I found a whole shipper in a Walmart a couple weeks agoHence why he never answered my question as to why people are finding them in regions in the US.>heh no nooo, they're all gone...don't go LOOKING for anySounds like a scalper
>>8909388>>8909443Anti-necanon here. I like the Godzilla figures and even own a few. I just hate everything else they make and like stirring shit. I’m also married btw so it’s not lack of pussy. It’s frustration from my job along with boredom and actually having NECA QC problems. In short, FUCK NECA and anyone who buys their figures (other than the Godzillas minus shin. Shin sucks)
>>8909515Looks like deforeal
>>8909807You should seriously kill yourself. You are just the worst.
>>8909807Get a hobby, you fuck. I recently bough a unicycle out of boredom, and bored I am no longer.>FUCK NECA and anyone who buys their figures (other than the Godzillas minus shin. Shin sucks)You're not wrong about this.
>>8909865 Nah fuck you, he's entirely wrong about that as much as you are faggot.
>>8909807It figures one of the shittiest trolls on this board would be a loser like you.
>>8909807>I’m also married btw so it’s not lack of pussy. It’s frustration from my job along with boredom and actually having NECA QC problems.
>>8907427How did I never notice the tail before?
>>8909846>>8909865>>8909878>>8909880SEETHING NECA collectors spotted.
>>8907508Pre-ordered both tonight, these are going to be my first SHMA and I'm excited
>>8909892Oh wow, the troll used "seethe" in a sentence! Beware everyone!
I ordered a knockoff NECA Rodan today with my stimmy. Eat my ass, niggas.
>>8909807Not based, in fact, quite retarded.
>>8909892Seething about what?>IM MARRIED AND GET PUSSY SO FUCK NECAok lardass
>>8910130Ur so mad
10 dollar toy being sold for more than double… I hope SH makes a warbat & skullcrawler. And maybe a repaint/re-engineering of ghidorah and other titans.
>>8909961They're going to be my first ones too. I wish godzilla came with a beam to shoot at the axe but I guess i will have to cope with this "intimidation" blue version. It actually helps to think of it like that since it doesn't have a beam. It's just trying to intimidate kong.
>>8909279Which New Jersey location? I've been to a ton of them and they're all zilch.
Just saw this. Is it actually a unreleased toy or just a chinese only product?
>>8909807You're absolutely right. But please find a better way to relieve stress, for your own sake. It'll drive you mad.
>>8910281>You're absolutely right.Haha, good joke anon.
>>8910292No, he is. The Godzilla figures are all somehow fine, but Shin is just shitty. Everything else NECA makes can't be trusted to hold together. They literally classify their products as perishable so they can't get sued for making shit toys.
>>8910304That's a fun delusional post you just made anon. This isn't creative writing though.
>>8909566>decently pricedfrom where? after the stock dried up he went up in prices fast as hell
>>8910367For Godzilla Earth? I mean it's the biggest piece of shit anime, I'm surprised if the design has any fans.
One week into no Mechagodzilla SHMA announcement. I anticipate many more to follow.
>>8910376Give it about 5 or 6 more weeks
>>8910376Wait until at least when the movie releases in Japan before starting your countdown.
>>8910391Mechagodzilla was in the trailer. He's no more a spoiler than Kong's axe.
>>8910375f i l t e r e d
>>8910392He didn’t say anything about spoilers, but it makes more sense to release him closer to when the movie releases in japan than right now
>>8910411Nope. Anime sucks, books were good and should’ve been what the actual anime was
>>8910411Where is the lie in what he said? The design is fucking awful and the anime itself was even worse. It was pretty much unwatchable.
>>8910411Filtered from boring garbage? Good.
>>8909807>Relieves stress by getting into days long arguments about toy companies that takes away from the thread’s main topicPretty autistic, Bruh. Find a way to relieve stress that isn’t annoying as fuck.
Bros where can I purchase a bootleg Ghidorah? Ebay?
>>8910421>>8910429>>8910434Look at all the redditors.
>>8910600yeah, but don't buy anything that's cheaper than $70 because it's probably the bootleg Godzilla
>>8910602The first one was pretty bad. Second and third are fine. We have enough Godzilla movies based entirely on punch punch punch, which is why I hope Singular Point doesn't turn into endless mindless monster mashes.
>>8910602>someone disagrees with my shitty taste>better call them a redditor
>>8910600Most likely nowhere by this point. There have been a couple of cases where people bought that Ghidorah and received an empty envelope with a tracking number pasted on it.
I feel like watching GvK but I don't feel like going to the Cinema. wutdo?
>>8910020Based on what?
>>8910617I appreciate them trying to experiment with the franchise and character, but the three movies were so exposition-heavy that any reasonable person would be bored by them. The first two movies also left on huge cliffhangers without having any real payoff. It was just three movies of pseudo-deep misery porn. Also, the art style was quite hideous.
>>8910784Go to the cinema anyway.
>>8909807Your wife is worried that you're spending too much time on a Sumerian cuneiform forum talking about toy monsters.
>>8910817But they are icky with corona-infested cum everywhere...
>>8910868I said the cinema, not the XXX adult cinema.
>>8910421>booksGet a load of this loser
>>8907365Just a heads-up: There is going to be another online Gfest through the Godzilla store on May 22nd (Japan time). Last time it was a whole lot of very little in terms of toys, but there was some new stuff revealed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8J9gM3Ndy0c
>>8907376It's a children's toy. For children. Not everything is created for neckbeard collectors like us.
>>8910617No they weren't. All three were complete garbage.
>>8911077>implying children don't care about quality
>>8911136>implying that toy isn't quality
>>8911136Their sense of quality is different. Their level of acceptable is different than ours. I work with elementary school children, and the toys that they bring in for 'show and tell', the things that they love and cherish, aren't terribly impressive by our standards. They love them, though, because it looks more or less like what it's supposed to look like, and it's sturdy enough that it doesn't break when they smash it against their other toys.
>>8911226I want Godzilla to sit on me.
>>8910292>>8910307seething neca collector
>>8910618The fuck? I thought these weren’t out. Which country/state?
>it’s a NECA thread LOL not again! NECA CONTINUOUSLY SHITS OUT THIS GARBAGE AND YOU KEEP BUYING IT!!
>>8911233>>8911306That's some weird trolling you're doing.
What are the odds of getting a Bandai Spirits of Kong/MechaG in this scale? The movie is doing way better than predicted, so I'm hoping good?
>>8911324for kong I'd say he's pretty much guaranteed, check goji's posture, is the aircraft carrier pose so it makes sense to expect kong to 'complete the set'. I'de like to have a mechaG monsterarts or even a plamo but who knows
>>8911317That's some predictable NECAfagging you're doing
Another playmates godzilla has surfaced out of the blue. Not that big a fan but the trendmasters reference is neat. Makes me wonder if things like the lighter and darker color godzilla variants and the radio tower accesory were intentional callbacks to older godzilla toys
>>8911045I wonder if we'll get an announcement for SHMA Mechagodzilla
>>8912120God every fucking Playmates Toy so far looks like something you get from a Happy Meal
>>8912278They really do look like complete garbage.
>>8912278A GvK line with JP style damage sounds like a really fun idea but they squandered it. The details are really muddy and the sculpts feel sub par even when compared to what they share shelves with. Huge shame too since their Peter Jackson Kong line (as well as their Turok and Primal Rage lines) have good looking sculpts (granted those are almost two decades old at this point and the people who worked on them probably left years ago).
>SHMA Biogoji doesn't come with pancake making accessoriesPreorder dropped.
>the XL MechaG is selling for $90 on Amazon>6" MechaG is between $30 and $50Jesus, the scarcity is driving the prices through the roof. When the fuck is Playmates going to ramp up production?
>>8912396>The SHMA MechaG might end up being more affordable than the Pureimeitusu MechaG
>>8912284The Skull Crawler isn't half bad, especially if you got it for MSRP. Plus, it provides a solid base if you're a custom fag.
>>8912414I’d say Warbats in the same category too. My only complaint is that the pose is too dynamic in that the wings look uneven even though they are, just in odd places
>>8912431I wasn't able to get ahold of a warbat in store, and I just can justify picking one up for $30 on Amazon, but yeah, it does look pretty good for the price except for those uneven wings. I wish they'd just been a solid sculpt
>>8912396Not trying to fearmonger here, but... there's a solid chance they won't. These toys were all manufactured over a year ago and had to just sit in warehouses because the movie got delayed a whole year. In the meantime, they would have stopped production at a certain point as the inventory started piling up with nowhere to go and as the company needed to move onto other lines. If they had to shelve/discontinue the line like that, it's not likely it will go back into production at all because molds probably got destroyed in that process.
>>8912460Yeah I’d say wait until they restock which I’m guessing will either be later this month or May (they said Jet Jaguar and Burning G is releasing in Spring so I’m assuming a restock is following with them). The gashapon version’s wings look a lot better. If you’re into making your own custom figs, I can see how someone can make the wings look more visually even
I want Godzilla to step on me so fucking bad, bros
>>8912339Speaking of JP, I feel like they missed a huge opportunity for the human stuff. Would've been neat seeing a HEAV to stick some 3.75 figs in and some not-JP human with creature packs like the Lanard KSI line. Maybe if they shift to making their stuff Monsterverse branded instead of strictly Godzilla vs Kong they can try to add some more variety.
>>8912431>>8912460I got my Warbat yesterday, and my only complaint is that no matter how you pose him, he always leans
>>8912498Monsterverse toylines have been filled with a lot of missed opportunities. Still bummed Jakks never released any new jumbos for king of the monsters. I’m sure a bunch of people would have customized a jakks rodan jumbo into the world’s greatest monsters/shogun warriors rodan.
>>8912103That's a very typical troll response from you
Would I be able to shove a NECA beam effect into a SHMA godzilla mouth? Maybe with a stand to hold it?
Why is this $10 shit being scalped so hard? They're not even that good. Holy shit. I'm seeing 500%+ markups.
>>8912663This is what happens when one company gets the license and only one store stocks them.
>>8912577What kinda articulation does it have? I see the swivel tail and hinged wings, anything else?
>tfw no Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots knockoff with Godzilla and Kong on the aircraft carrier like this or the T-Rex vs Spino one for JPIII
>>8912735Just the two points on the tail and the wings is all. Kinda disappointed that the jaw isn't articulated.
>>8912663It's bizarre to me that collectors are going after it. Would have liked it as a kid I'm sure, but this stuff is not fit for my shelf. Hell, compare it to the quality of the toys for the 98 Godzilla where even the basic 4-5 inch Godzilla and baby Godzilla figures had knee, elbow, ankle, and wrist articulation... These GvK toys all look like the cheapest plastic I've ever seen too.
>>8912724Basically this>>8912770>It's bizarre to me that collectors are going after it. Would have liked it as a kid I'm sure, but this stuff is not fit for my shelfDepends on the individual. I'll snag anything Godzilla, honestly. I grew up playing with cheapy plastic Godzilla toys, so I have a soft spot. The 11" MechaG is pretty decent. Having talked with a close friend of mine who's been a collector for a long time, it's just the way things go with collecting (especially with Hot Wheels according to him). Movie just came out, people like it, kids like it (I'm assuming), and parents will pay whatever for their kid to have the toy. I just wish these fuckers weren't so faggy about making a quick buck.
>>8912768Is yours not articulated? Mine is. Tight joints?
>>8912577That's why it comes with a small plastic stand
>>8912469>>8912472We still have other stuff in the line and even the HKB 6" figures that came out of nowhere just before the international release. Vanilla ones are probably done like you said, but I have no doubt that they're probably making repaints and phasing out stuff like the Giant figures now that they'll get mogged hard by the Mega ones.
why the fuck are people buying SHMA GVK Kong and Goji on ebay for $123? I know that pre-orders are capped on amiami, ninnin, Amazon, and AC but you can still get them at BBTS for $68.
>>8912896Because they're retards. I just got it on BBTS. I'll get it late but at least it'll be around retail.
>>8910236I figured they were dollar store toys
>>8912798Eh, I don't know anon. It just seems like you have absurdly low standards. I grew up playing with cheap Godzilla toys too (pic related is probably one of my favorite toys ever and I still have mine somewhere). But these GvK toys somehow look even cheaper and lower quality than that. It just seems silly to me. I'd feel pretty dumb spending $10 on any of that on a whim, let alone the scalper prices.
>>8912812Aaah no. Just took a stab at it. It was just super stiff. I didn't want to push it. The 11" MechaG looks like the knees should be articulated, but they aren't, so I didn't want to put too much pressure on it and snap it off.
>>8912920I had your pic related as a kid too. Godzilla stuff is Godzilla stuff to me. Having the attitude that I MUST have the most articulated and expensive high end Godzilla shit is just a melvin mindset to me. It's to each their own. Plus, we're trying to start a family, so I'd like my kid to be able to play with all of the shit I've collected. Ten bucks is ten bucks.
>>8912940>we're trying to start a family, so I'd like my kid to be able to play with all of the shit I've collected.This makes me think about what the fuck I’ll do with all of my high end shit once I have kids. Will probably just let’em at it with my NECA stuff considering it’s already broken/not meant to be a durable toy.
>>8912940>Having the attitude that I MUST have the most articulated and expensive high end Godzilla shit is just a melvin mindset to mepoorfag gonna poorfag
>>8912920This was also my favorite Zilla, my God, you sent me on a nostalgia trip, thanks anon.
>>8912940 but just because a 1971 Camaro had shitty handling and engine that sucks doesn't mean the 2021 should have the same stander too.as times goes on things should improve and get better playmates are stuck in their old ways and not innovating
>>8913068did you had the big one or the small one?
>>8912927Can’t say I blame you. I feel like I’m breaking the Skullcrawlers jaw when I close it. I also feel like I’m gonna scratch off paint with the Warbat
>>8912940>Having the attitude that I MUST have the most articulated and expensive high end Godzilla shit is a melvin mindset to me.That's not my attitude at all. I just don't want my shelves of collectibles to look like gaudy Fisher Price shit, which these cheap ass GvK toys absolutely look like. It's the bottom rung in terms of quality. They are the basest definition of toys to be played with by 6 year olds in their backyard (aka what a toy should be), not "toys" that are display pieces for collectors like a Monsterarts or all my Star Wars black series figures. I'm saying this as someone who loves to collect, I simply do not see what a grown man could gain from this particular toyline. They are basic, no frills hunks of undetailed plastic made to be thrown around and bashed into each other by rowdy little kids. They don't belong on a shelf next to a $100 figure, they belong in a child's toybox. Frankly, I think it reflects badly on anyone trying to buy these up as a collector or scalper instead of letting the kids have them. It's just one of those instances of the very black and white distinction between the types of toys that exist in my opinion.>>8913039You'll either sell em for a quick buck to pay for diapers or eventually just let your kids have it all and stop caring about what happens to the toys because it's more fun reliving your own childhood vicariously.
>>8913094>my Star Wars black seriesI was agreeing with you up until that point. Gross.
>>8912753Fuck, that would be great.
A Mechagodzilla that keeps falling apart before Godzilla even fights it, called Necagodzilla
>>8913172You're quite possibly the biggest retard on this board. No, no, I think you very much are the biggest retard on this board.

>>8913243Is it confirmed necatard is a tranny? It would make sense considering they are delusional mentally ill freaks
>>8913251I imagine him as something very similar to Chris Chan
>>8913251>>8913261I think it's more telling that you idiots have to make up shit like this just to make excuses for your own bullshit.
>>8913269So you broke a toy just to shitpost? That does seem like something a retard like you would do.
>>8913273I even painted one in a Chinese sweatshop, just for you NECAtranny
>>8913275>I even painted one in a Chinese sweatshopYou're a foreigner? No wonder you act like you do.
>>8913248Care to extrapolate?
>>8912120How is this a trendmasters reference?
>>8913278Yeah, you're dumb as rocks.
>>8913277>NECAtranny admitting xe is a bigotThe hypocrisy of this one
>>8913286Huh? What u mean?
>>8913287You mean the hypocrisy you're showing in every post you make?
>>8913261I could see that. Very sad
>>8913283Supercharged Godzilla is naked, like the Trendmasters Godzilla.
>>8913097>Thinks Star Wars Black Series figures are somehow bad (they aren't, they're pretty much the best figures of their kind around)>wants to buy literal garbage like this >>8912120Yikes.
>>8913094Bruh, they're all just toys. Even a $100 toy is still just a toy. If you think people think you displaying a 9 dollar toy looks gaudy and childish, wait until they hear you're spending 100s on them.
>>8913269Are the NECA Godzilla's really breakable? I've never owned one before but I was thinking of picking up the MosuGoji. Also why is he so green?
>>8913322>wants to buy literal garbage like thisNah.
>>8913372I've never had a single one break. Not even the absolute-garbage Shin.
>>8913094You sound like a huge fag
>>8913372No, Necazillas are tanks
>>8913372My MosuGoji survived a shelf dive (Ghidorah tipped over and pushed him off) completely unscathed.
>>8913372No. They are stiff out of the package so don't try to force the joints to move too hard right away but the plastic/rubber they are made of is extremely sturdy.
>we'll never get a KOTM Ghidorah with wings like Rathlosit hurts
>>8913372The other replies are all correct. Don't worry about it. The thing about N*ca is there are two anons in here, one who slavishly supports the company, and one who psychotically despises them, both of them are just LARPing but they pretty much own these threads. It's real bad.
>>8913511I'm glad they behave like they're supposed to.
>>8913573Nice Photoshop brooo
>>8913573It's literally this picture
Anyone have a complete list of the SH line? I saw the '89 figure recently and I'm wondering what else I missed
>>8913594bro you're behind 60+ releases.literally google shmonsterarts line
>>8913594Have fun seeing Biollante then seeing it’s price
>>8913601I did and it just gives me random shop links to individual listings
>>8913608yeah thats what I'm worried about, so I want to see which ones they've missed
>>8913601There's not enough Showa era in this.
>>8913628What is kek?
>>8913662It's an equivalent to "lol" that originated from how World of Warcraft filtered the anagram into Orc language. This is ancient Internet from the golden age but it had a massive resurgence in recent years for completely unrelated reasons that tie into Egyptian mythology and Pepe the frog. What do they type for laughter in the timeline you crossed over from? What do you call those children's books about the family of bears?
>>8913685Isn't "lol" referring to League of Legends?
>>8913686Is this all life after turning 30 is going to be?
when are we gonna finally get 1962 King Kong
>>8912896Are people actually buying them, or are they just scalping faggots trying to resell toys that aren't even out yet? The scalpers are already using bots to buy up the Playmates toys.
>>8913730Your best option is to try to import a vintage figure from Japan. Jewniversal would most likely block any new figures from being sold retail outside of Japan unless they get their cut.
>>8913372N*CA Godzilla’s are fine. Anything else N*CA makes is for N*CAgers who will adamantly defend their shit company.
>>8913372No, they're not. It's just a trolling tactic on this board, so shit gets overblown by assholes.
>>8913923Shit trolls like this here is what ruins these threads
>>8913887>scalping faggots trying to resell toys100% this.
>>8913094>wall of textFag
>>8913887>botsMaybe for stuff that was readily available online, but I don't see how they're using those for the 6" figs that weren't the 2 Godzillas or Basic Kong. Skullcrawler, HE Kong, Mechagodzilla, and the HKBs weren't available online at all and Warbat never even had a working page. That's not to say it isn't scalpers so much as it being Walmarts crap online toy store combined with awful distribution making them more limited than they should be.
>>8908591I actually prefer the back side of it. Like the bust is cool, but the back is a full diorama.
>>8912339>Primal Rage lineSay fucking what now? When did this happen?
Help me guys. Is this guy a Monsterarts or a Chogokin? Or are there 2 different releases?I keep finding product listings under each brand name, using the same or similar release pictures and sometimes the same box art, I'm confused af.
>>8914051That's a Monsterfarts.
>>8914049The 90's: https://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure?action=seriesitemlist&id=521
>>8914197I need that Armadon. That shit looks like a Zoanoid from Guyver,
>>8914051It's a Tamashii Mix.
>>8914049The line was kino as fuck. I had most all of them when I was a kid. Slashfang was my favorite.
>>8913524At least we have a statue that requires 3 unsightly acryllic display holders for a neutral standing pose
>>8914051It's kinda both?
>>8914051Its labeled as Tamashii MIX combining CHOGOKIN X S.H.MONSTERARTS
Are there any other SHMA I need to avoid due to QC issues or other problems, like the 2019 Ghidorah?
>>8914634>Godzilla 2014If you can get the Spitfire, then you're golden, but the basic figure has horrendous QC issues on the face paint and notoriously bad joints.>Rodan&Mothra KoTM setRodan is fine even if he's a bit under-painted, but Mothra's paint job on the body is just terrible. The HG and NECA are vastly superior to the SHMA Mothra. If you can't get the HG or NECAs, then just go for bootleg set on ebay.>Original Ghidorahthe wings are really breakable. If you're buying on the aftermarket, make sure it's the special color reissue. Also, make sure you're not buying the Showa bootleg.>Shin GodzillaIt's nowhere near as bad as the NECA, but the paint job is very hit or miss. I've seen some that look good and others that look like they were pains by someone with Parkinson's disease. Kind of a crapshoot with this one, which makes spending 350 bucks on the aftermarket for him something that I personally wouldn't recommend.I think that's it, really.
>>8914680The NECA shin isn't even that bad
>>8914680Only the vanilla SHMA Shin Godzilla was bad. The Awakening and Frozen versions are good.
>>8914680Thanks, anon. I was considering older ones for the most part anyway. >Showa bootlegSo are they going to release an official Showa Ghidorah soon, or...? I've heard the bootleg originated from an official mold that they acquired in advance somehow.
>>8914702It has better paint, which is really funny, but the tail's fucked up and there's lots of little inaccuracies to it. It's probably the worst NECA Godzilla.
>>8914705>FrozenI honestly can't believe there are people who spend the money on a Shin SHMA and choose the one that's gray all over and basically a corpse.
>>8914702the NECA has good paint apps, but the head and tail sculpt are not good, anon. I'm not a NECA hater, but outside of maybe the first issue of the 84, Shin is their worst sculpt in the Godzilla line. >>8914705I was only referring to the original Shin. I should have made that more clear in the post. >>8914790nobody knows. It's been well over a year since they first started appearing and we haven't heard anything about Showa Ghidorah. With the GvK figures, BioGoji, and Zinogre coming out later this year, the lineup looks pretty packed as is. So if the bootleg is based on a stolen mold or prototype, I doubt we'll be seeing an official Showa Ghidorah before the end of the year. I haven't picked up the bootleg yet, but I've been leaning towards doing it ever since I got into doing custom paint apps after the Playmates Skull Crawler.
>>8909314I am a transgender person and this shit is still annoying even to me
>>8914634Gamera 1999 has an awful sculpt and the paint on the teeth is unacceptable. King Kong 2005 has exploding elbow joints. Kamata-kun and Shinagawa-kun have really shitty paint apps.
>>8914902Starting to get the appeal of X-Plus despite being statues but with these aftermarket prices I just can't.
>>8914834Because it's going to sit motionless on the shelf 99% of the time anyway.
>>8914898Trannies aren't people.
I've never bought a funko pop before. Do they restock their site exclusive stuff? I wanted beam effect mechagodzilla.
>>8909028If only any of the Walmarts around me would actually get that fucking shipper.All I want is Mechagodzilla.
>>8914924Oh no someone on 4chan doesn't like me!
