    Laser horn effect is unlocked thus reaching the main figure goals. Now what's left are the additional vehicles and buildings

    Exactly why I’m not preordering along with I realized that price from being a p-bandai exclusive… that a lot of money especially with no beam probably

    Mail call. Just got a special delivery of comic goodness. Kaiju and Hasbro.

    I had bought issues 1 and 2 of Here There Be Dragons, but comic shop never got issue 3. Was cheaper to buy tge TPB than issue 3 off ebay shipped. Plus it will look sharper on a shelf.

    I went with the Ditko varient Micronauts cover. I love Ditko's annual issues, the art is charming. I do regret not having Golden art on the cover though. I love that the spine has a dope image of Marionette by Broderick

    Gigan and Godzilla 1972 rule though!

    Conversely, I didn’t preorder either.

    Energized Godzilla

    Release time: 2025Q1

    You know I'm starting to hate how additional accessories are made exclusively for the repaints. Why couldn't they include the neck and now the fists with the regular Godzillas?

    I respect what hiya makes but the repaint double standard is insane. This has to be nearly the 10th one they've done for just Godzilla

    Just saw this early this morning on a couple of Godzilla/kaiju-related channels I follow on YouTube. Got my preorder in from BBTS:

    Blacklight effect is cool but much too close to the NECA one for me.

    I reeeeeeeally like how this version looks, much more in proportion than the Hiya version. But, at nearly 3 times the cost, it had damn well better be.

    At this point, I don't know whether to go for this one or just be happy with my Movie Monster Series figure until the Sofvics figure is available.

    Bandai’s QC and that price are the things holding me back from ordering. I get it’s a new mold but that’s a lot of money for a figure with barely any accessories or beam.

    Maybe if Hiya Toys makes a V2 Skull Crawler, even though that would look different in coloration. That one will definitely go by Shemp.

    If Hiya ever goes back to GvK, the more colorful Skullcrawler would definitely be a nice inclusion.
