Now that the dust has settled, you buying GMK godzilla?
> Web Exclusive
> Canadian - USD exchange
I'll buy it for myself and 3 other anons who agree with me that KingGoji is best Godzilla suit.
Monsterarts primarily panders to the 20-30 year old Japanese market, that's why we've had Heisei stuff up the ass.
Ask yourself "hmm, what would that audience think of x character" and then rethink the question
Fuck this, if they won't make SHMA KingGoji, I'll make my own!
They love Showa, that's why showa gets the lions share of expensive releases in terms of godzilla merch. It's just that those releases are statues and not articulated figures. And as a result of that, a lot of Showa fans spend all their money on those rather than SHMAs. There's too many X-plus statues and vintage vinyls to find to start collecting another line.
Which sucks for those of us Showa fans who would buy Showa MAs.
Moguera for only 65 Canada ruples if anyone is interested! Amazon.ca selling it directly.
>News article said they are showing 3 new models
no, theyre showing 1, but they plan 3 release this year, or maybe more depending on how good things go with toho approving stuff
knowing NECA some of those are repaints
Moguera is seriously one of the best Monsterarts. He comes with a ton of accessories, and his engineering is amazing.
I wish bandai cared enough to make their figs even half this good still.
Rodan just went from $75 to $57. Not sure what he was with shipping before this. Should I cop?
He ain't bad. The building he comes with is especially nice, they really did some clever ways to 'destroy' the building bases.
Dann I really want him, but I can't justify that price
Pretty excited after the GMK reveal. Would be great to see a few more figures revealed at NY Toy fair in a couple of weeks. I suggest Muto's, Showa MG, Titanosaurus, Zilla, Orga just to name a few.
>I suggest Muto's, Showa MG, Titanosaurus, Zilla, Orga just to name a few.
>thinking Bandai's going to spend any money to make something new and interesting like that
It would be neat if they released a Godzilla that could be paired up with another cool monster release.
But this will probably be like the 2000 release, and follow up with nothing but a repaint, if that.
Man I hope the new Godzilla movie gets Bandai to make some more of those Chibi figures.
>They probably could've put out a new vinyl instead of these shelf warming pieces
Yes like they've been doing the past two years oh wait
>inb4 G2015 and G1954
That and King Caesar who shelf-warmed way longer than these guys did. I don't know what Creations even does these days.
The suit was originally designed to be hunched over and parallel to the ground, but the weight made moving around like that too hard on the person in the suit. Thats why it has some odd wrinkles in the neck.
And it's up on BBTS.
And I preordered it because I am unhealthily obsessed with this shit.
You could just go looking for the classic Godzilla Sofubi collections. They might be hard to track down considering they're near 20 year old gachapon but they show up on ebay every now and then.
There's also a Gamera set that show up on there too.
Because of the new SHMA and the love the movie gets here, I decided to give GMK a watch. HOT DAMN
>qt female MC
>Nails in Godzilla's status as a villain and reminds the audience of his original purpose
>That scene in the classroom after Godzilla nukes the crowd
>Shockingly good writing and characterization; the human characters more like they were from Gunbuster than Godzilla
>The shitty news team
>Shows the aftermath of Godzilla's attacks (also there's that heartwarming scene with the dopey eyed kid)
>That speech the FeMC gives before falling into the water
>Those fucking suit designs
Holy fuck /toy/, thank you so much. This movie made my night.
>The last couple monsters I preordered on Amazon got cancelled each time so I'm probably just gonna do BBTS.
This is one of the first times I've heard of such a thing. Has this happened to anyone else?
My G2K Reissue and Rebirth preorders went through just fine, but now I think I won't be so lucky with GMKzilla
>The last couple monsters I preordered on Amazon got cancelled each time so I'm probably just gonna do BBTS.
>It costs a bit more, but at least they always actually deliver.
Same here! Everything from Kiryu 2.0 on I've seen them cancel my order. I've picked up everything from Bigbad afterwards. I hate missing out on the free shipping and sometimes even cheaper rates on Amazon but, shit.
Eh, its worth it.
Thing will probably be well over $150 plus shipping on amazon.ca the second people get their hands on it because scalpers. Realistically this is probably the cheapest i'll ever be able to get it in Canadaland which is pretty sad actually.
Look who's back.
I just realized the bad guy he fights is pretty much just Zeorymer as a kaiju
They really should have just used a suit for the main monsters. The cg on Gamera is actually pretty decent though.
Also, FUCK I STILL HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN THE HESEI GAMERA MOVIES
They just slapped tusk and a turtle shell on the legendary Godzilla
The blu rays or the movies?
I would legitamatly say Gamera 1 and 2 are in like the top 10 (1 is top 3) kaiju films of all. A lot of people love 3, and I think it's good as well but the first 2 are near perfect.
Blurays I think are good, but apparently the third one has some kind of subtitle issue with certain copies
>I just put that shit on preorder couldn't stop myself.
Same. GMK is already one of my favorite Kaiju movies, I think the only thing I've seen so far that's better than it is the 1954 original
Then step over to GLORIOUS Americaaaaaaaaaaa.
So long as you're white, we won't give a shit if you're here legally or not.
If you're any shade of brown, the police will gun you down in the street tho.
Then they either haven't put it up yet, or they don't plan on middlemanning this release.
Can't remember if they actually bother with SHMA, sorry. I've used it for Ultra-acts and Figuarts exclusives only. They just also came to mind.
DON'T YOU PUSSY OUT FELLOW CANADAFAG.
WE'RE EITHER IN THIS TOGETHER OR NOT AT ALL. ITS WORTH IT LIMITED RUN.
Yeah, the tk forums are pretty much the worst part of the fandom. Literally everything devolves into a childish argument where everyone thinks they're right and it just sucks. I used to go there only for toy news, but since I found the thread on /toys/ I've never had a need or inclination to go baxk
>Literally everything devolves into a childish argument where everyone thinks they're right and it just sucks
I'm sorry, but why go to /toy/ then? It's the same thing here...
Glad you enjoy him. My Goji has the opposite problem (one of his leg ball-joints are too tight), but tightness/looseness is easily fixable.
Are you planning on getting any more?
Hilariously and sadly, the very best place I've found to talk about Godzilla online is /co/.
Usually the most arguments you'll find are whether Legendary was good/enjoyable and, sadly, that Godzilla shouldn't be talked about on /co/.
Best thing to do is storytime a comic and let the discussion spring up around that so it's not in VIOLATION.
Tk is pretty much the worst I've seen on here x13. The ones I've seen on these threads usually resolve themselves not after long and usually never really get that bad. But tk is just the worst
That's true, but it also looks like BBTS has it earlier. hmm
Deghara deserved so much more than rebirth of Mothra 2. Hell, all the rebirth of Mothra enemy monsters deserved much more. Death Ghidorah should've fought the big g himself, maybe then we would've gotten a monsterarts of best Ghidorah
I doubt they'll have it that much earlier. In fact, the few Japanese products I've ordered from BBTS actually weren't in stock there till a month or more after the date posted and after other American shops had them in.
>I don't know what Creations even does these days.
Last new thing to come out of Bandai Creation were the 6" and 12" versions of Legend-Goji. Did we ever get the Godzilla-EG line ported over here like we were supposed to?
Had no problems with MKG, but I didn't preorder day-of, a bit later one of the times the price dropped instead.
Heisei alignments are cool, but if one could be done for all the generations, that'd be neat. Or you could even do an all-Godzilla one if you look hard enough at all the Showa variants.
I don't know how to feel about it. I loved the last 4 Gamera movies, but the CGI looks really fake in this teaser.
Holy shit, something about that is just plain creepy af
Amazon and Bluefin are having a disagreement. There's no solid details, but it's something to do with a change to Amazon's pre-order policy, I think. Either way, domestically you can still order them through specialty shops (Comic shops can order them, just ask), and there's also BBTS, but their pricing can be inconsistent.
>tfw don't know where the fuck to order GMK Goji because I'm a pleb who's only ever used Amazon, AmiAmi, and HLJ
I just wanted my evil ghost Godzilla
megaguirus has grown on me alot since i watched it as a youngster. i think Godzilla x mechagodzilla did a better job with a similar story, but i still consider it underrated af (also anon, i think its supposed to be viewed before gmk, cuz release order)
>monster arts classic gigan design fucking never
>monster arts Megalon fucking never
>monster arts J-J-J-JET JAGAAAAAA fucking never
That's true. I do think the movie had it's strengths though; the first scene when the military runs in with Godzilla is pretty good, and Megaguirus is fucking radical (that goes without saying though)
Using the pier as a battlefield as opposed to your run-of-the-mill city was also a cool choice.
>Contact at TK who works with Bluefin and Bandai was using connections to monitor remaining product in stock to ship AND when product was shipped to retailers so he could scalp figures (Michal Shipman) (of note, one retailer confirmed to a friend of mine he bought 5 Biollante in one go after it hit aftermarket prices. it was a hole-in-the-wall random site someone linked it so they had some left)
>Other connection to toy companies was helping him. Also is attempting to use TK to make connections in Holywood by brown-nosing Toho and Legendary however he can, claims he's working for the fans despite him having NOTHING to show for it, and slaps his name on every piece of promotional material and movie still he can because lolfuckyou. Other misc bullshit (Chris Mirjahnagirgianigiagigar)
>Admins and mods making up new rules every so, so much so some of the newer mods don't even know what the rules are. Permabans handed out without warning.
>Owner of the site is doing anything with the site anymore, just kinda riding the waves

I can keep going, but I don't feel like it.
Baragon in 2002.
Add it to your cart and then head to checkout. For whatever reason, they give you a coupon that reduces the price by however much the cheapest shipping option is and then they charge you shipping.
Yeah it's bassackwards, but it is what it is.
>also anon, i think its supposed to be viewed before gmk, cuz release order
Release order doesn't mean anything when both stories are unconnected alternate universes. You could watch Final Wars before Godzilla 2000, if for some odd reason you wanted to do so.
I might need to rewatch Megaguirus sometime, from what I recall I hated the film and kinda ruined my interest in her.
I'm assuming you meant to hit something other than >>5430247? Don't give a shit about TK.
Man that guy pissed me off. I can't tell if he was being manipulative or if Bandai was just being jerks, but he kept toying with people on the forums all the time.
He doesn't like you.
I don't like you either.
You just watch yourself.
I have the Death Penalty... IN TWELVE SYSTEMS!!!
YOU'LL BE DEAD!!!!
Anybody else gotten their special color ghidorah yet? The wings are definitely still fragile but it seems like they have a slightly different joint system that allows for much smoother movement. I'm not about to try to take it apart to find out obviously but I feel pretty safe when moving them compared to the last release. Haven't had any joints popping off which is ducking fantastic. One of my first version's tails wouldn't stay together for shit. The flight stand is also pretty great although it might need to be tightened with a small screwdriver.
Do the 'casings' around the base of the wings fit in their holes all right? Can you take any photos?
I have been wondering if they altered the design at all. I'm SUPER lucky that my Ghidorah never broke, but I won't go swinging the wings around like in some reviews I've seen.
All I have is my phones camera so I will do the best I can
I know the shelf is a mess lol but I'm currently in the process of dusting, rearranging, and deposing.
Again I'm sorry of these aren't great quality. Diego Doom's review should be up soon as well.
I feel like it is but mostly cuz I'm a big Hesei Ghidorah fag. It's is superior to the original release in terms of quality and accessories, but I would say it's a good idea to still be very careful with the wings. They do move better but they are still big and heavy and the joints don't look like they can withstand a lot careless abuse. It's a gorgeous toy and the flight stand really makes posing fun.
Chris Mirjahargir is a ass. His uncle is a Dean of the film school that he went to. Now makes bad movie that go over budget. He is a professional photographer and takes the worst pictures for he's awful toy reviews. You know he gets the of those figures for free. He went down to bluefin & Baidai in California weeks on end. Demanding to get free monsterarts. If you ever have the privilege to talk to this spoiled brat, your in for a trip. His Xbox gamer tag is GODZIL1A
Is this post some kind of lame troll attempt? Way to add to the conversation.
Probably the best part is Bandai cared so little about this release that they didn't even mold the breath attack with a deep enough hole to properly sit on the stand's peg.
>releasing more than one showa figure is pandering
Ive got this sitting,paid for in my PoL, but I'm considering cancelling it. I like it, but honestly I don't know if I'll get $140 Worth of enjoyment out of it. :/ but I know it'll never be cheaper.
You won't. I paid about that much for my Garuda, and every time I look at it I think "Jesus Christ I spent like $140 on a flying backpack". Its absurd, when you think about it. HOWEVER, you are right.. its not going to get cheaper, and its just about the only Garuda you can buy. Its nice to own one though, if for no other reason than just to say you have it for completion's sake.
AHHHHH! I wrestled with this impulse buy for awhile (haven't even seen the film), but for 30cad it's a great deal. The only other thing I was thinking about using my Amazon credit for was a 3DS game.
Personally i got the emergence cause i missed the first run of it. I quite like it honestly, it's probably my favorite showa suit, and the flame fits on mines peg fine. Also in the lighting my case has he looks bretty gud.
>There will never be a smutty romance film between Godzilla and Gamera
Ah shit you're right, goddamn i musta got the breath weapons confused with the spitfire breath weapon. Sorry to report my incorrect info but, yeah he's right the stand just doesn't fit and makes it a bitch to pose at certain angles. That said i still really like the figure, he's not as big as the others in the line but I really dig him.
