    Asked elsewhere, but is that a retailer-exclusive restock, or just the first of several to announce they'll have it back come November?

    ugh. Just when I paid $170 (plus tax, plus 3.5% cc fee) last month when I walked into a store and was surprised to see it there. I didn't even open it until this past Friday.

    I was about to write that in my recollection of seeing these quiet reissues happen in the past, these are almost always just for BBTS. But I just checked EE and it is up there as well:

    Godzilla Ultimates Destroyah 8-Inch Scale Action Figure

    Not sure I'd count on it showing up elsewhere but at least there's 2 options.

    SPeaking of Destoroyah, does the MonsterArts still go for anything on the secondary market? I'm thinking about off-loading some of my remaining MA.

    Yeah, SHMA Destoroyah is pricey, sad as that’s a figure I offloaded a while back and unlike Biollante didn’t get a much more recent re-release. Bandai’s working their way through third-version Heisei releases in other cases so it may only be a matter of time.

    Hmmm, so an ebay $400 is a $200 in the real world.

    Thanks. I'll have to think about it since I've got a few I keep going back and forth on, including Biollante, Burning G (though, that would mean giving up the accessories), some Mothras, etc.

    I don't normally go for cutesy merch, but lil plush Mothra was too much to resist. It's the YouTooz one.

    Finally got the theater exclusive GxK Lighting Mascot figure. At 2" tall, he's adorably fierce! Or fiercely adorable!

    I'm jealous you got to enjoy the book physically. My review copies are all digital. I have to say that issue was IDW's best Godzilla comic in quite some time.

    You get review copies? Like IDW sends you review copies?

    I didn't know digital was available, but that's a good way to reach more folks I'm sure. I like holding my books more than reading scans on my phone. And it's great to go back and revise later.

    I would say I liked the SpaceGodzilla issue of Rivals more than this one, but overall agreed it's one of the best one shots they've done. Though I must say I missed the Valentine's Day so I can't speak to that one, my shop didn't order it even though I asked them to

    Yep. IF you look at my comic review videos I've posted in the Godzilla thread for Movies and Television it has the IDW ring of "Promotional Use Only" on the pages.

    Wow that's crazy. Cool on you for landing that somehow. Tell those mofos to send me a copy of the Valentine's day special. I buy all the issues and I was never able to get a hold of that one haha.
