    There will eventually be an Otachi. Someone will make one. It's the star kauji of the movie.

    I assume from that Tweet, that the Kaiju for the next wave might be Raiju, Scunner, or Slattern (my money's on Slattern)

    I wouldn't hold your breath. They've been hinting on twitter that Wave 3 will be Coyote Tango, Cherno Alpha and one more figure. That last figure I think will probably be Raiju, Scunner or Tresspasser.

    Scunner/Tresspasser are probably too similar in design to Knifehead, Mutavore or Onibaba would be pretty left field although I certainly wouldn't object. Slattern is too big.

    The current trend seems to be 2 Jaegers to 1 Kaiju, I imagine they'll probably stick to it.

    Well, I'm glad sales are good but disappointed about Otachi. Still buying everything they release.

    I don't really care, I'd like to see Coyote too.

    I'd LOVE a Coyote Tango figure, still my favorite of all the Jaeger designs.

    And looking at the original teaser art, it's either going to be Raiju or Slattern. My bet is on the former, because Slattern would have to be released as a deluxe set with how big he is.

    Thanks :thumb 

    As far as Kaiju in that series, I'd go for Trespasser

    The 18" Gipsy danger is only on preorder on BBTS & keeps selling out. Does anyone think that it will come in stock long enough to make it to the 1st of september? Or do you know of any other sites that are selling it?

    I'm crossing my fingers the local store gets in the 18 inch Gypsy. They have all the recent 1/4th figure NECA have released. Even the two Lone Rangers ones which dumbfound me.

    I preordered the 18 inch Gipsy. Looks like it should be more impressive than the 7 inchers. The 7 inchers look good but I don't need a bunch more toys, plus I want the big guy!

    I'll probably wait for some reviews and early impressions before committing to the 18 inch Gipsy.

    I will only buy the 18 inch gipsy if I can manage to get a Metroplex. Because let's face it, the only thing worthy of going up against the 18 inch Gipsy is Metroplex.

    HOLD THE FUCK UP.

    NECA is doing an 18" Godzilla? Now I absolutely have to keep my 18" Gyspy Danger preorder.
