Edit pending more Godzilla 2014 toyline info from NECA, Jakks Pacific, and Bandai.
Hell yeah, more domestic Kaiju!
Ive always loved the PVC Kaiju but never really collected any due to sheer laziness. Hopefully I can find a few of these.
12-inch Mechagodzilla 03? Hell Yeah! How much are the 12-inch supposed to retail at?
*Prepares to import*
(6-inch Destroyah, I might get it, £5 plus p&p, though soft vinyl might not survive overseas postage?)
If it's packed well, there should be no problem...
Ooooo, I want that Destroyah!
I'd guess so, my 8-inch GMK Baragon survived a trip across the ocean.
As did my Chokogin Mechagodzilla-03, but he was metal and in a box.
I demand a Jet Jaguar. NOW.
Where were you when JJ was on sale for only $5?
Even if a vinyl figure was loose in a box with no packaging, it would survive a trip. It just wouldn't be minty-fresh. Packaged normally, it'd be no different than shipping any other toy overseas. In fact, the bonus would be its light weight compared to a Transformer of comparable size.
Without a sighting, no price on the 12" stuff yet.
OOOoooo....definitely pick up the two big ones if reasonably priced, and the smaller Millenium, Hedorah, and Destroyah are very tempting.
What a great surprise! I really dig them all, but I'll have to see 1968 Godzilla in person to decide if I really want him. I do have the 1954 Godzilla by Bandai Creation though, which is a great figure.
Finally, we get Godzilla 2000, Destroyah, Hedorah, 1968 Godzilla, a 12-inch modern Mecha-Godzilla, and a 12-inch Final Wars Godzilla! That Destroyah looks much better than it's Japanese release now that it has 4 individually detailed wings with painted sections.
All in all, this lineup looks great! And best of all, I can still find all the previously released figures in stores!
I have to pick up a godzilla
I saw these on Friday. My friend bought one of each. These are unique to the US since they are not just copies of existing figures. They are all larger than the Japanese version and some have remolded tails.
No sign of the 12" ones.
WHOA!!! Colour me EXCITED! Especially since I'm a fan of Kaijus! Thanks for the heads-up!
By the way, what's that ice-dragon!? It looks FANTASTIC!!! What series is it from?
This is kick ass news! I've had an enormous dry spell on Godzilla goodies now for years, so I'm pleased to hear this.
Hell yeah, and a Megalon for him to pimp slap!
Anyway, Destroyah will be mine, oh yes
A custom. It's what many of the toys in the guy's MSN group are.
Godzilla 1968 and Hedorah excite me less than the only two, due to my lack of interest in Godzilla vs. Hedorah/the Smog Monster. However, Hedorah's size might be able to fix the issue of the Japanese sculpt being too small and out of scale. Godzilla 1968 just doesn't look quite as great as the Japanese version.
BTW, if someone who does see these can pick them up for me? I'd be your friend forever.
The ice dragon is a custom? Whoa...I got to admit, its an amazing job! I was hoping it would be a from a new line...I want a decent line of "articulated" dragons.
Well, the guy's gallery is labeled "Dragonstorm's Customs..." Heh. I personally am not that fond of dragons, just because they carry no meaning for me. The "dragons" I grew up knowing all had their own names and unique features to set each other apart - Godzilla and company, followed by "real" ones, dinosaurs. Despite the variety of dragons out there, they were rarely "characters" or distinctive, and certainly not real, thus being irrelevant.
Took long enough, but from eBay, pictures of all four figures.
Still not sure of Hedorah myself, and I've never been a huge fan of vagina-eyes there. Especially not after seeing the movie.
Godzilla 2000 is a must-have. The original Japanese version is ridiculously expensive for what it is anyway.
Since I never picked up a Destoroyah earlier, I'll probably get this one too.
And Godzilla 1968, I could take it or leave it, probably the latter since I have no desire to pick it up and I already have a toy of the Godzilla I grew up on, Megaro-Goji.
That Godzilla 2000 is pretty awesome.
Is there a remold plammed to come out that has the chest scar from Tokyo SOS?
That Destroyah is pretty bad-ass too.
Damn, I may have to get a couple of the 6.5" after all.
