Gaira looks fantastic, and were it not for losing my job I'd have been thrilled to add him into my collection. How does he stack up alongside your typical 6" figure though? Obviously not to-scale, but just how he appears alongside my Showa kaiju.

Yeah, technically, he's not quite in scale; but aesthetically, I think it works just fine - in fact, I'm pretty sure Gaira's height matches up to where the suit actor in the Godzilla 2001 vinyl would be. :lol:

Sanda has landed in Japan now, so I'm hoping to be receiving one very soon from the same dealer.

I ordered both from a shop over there off Ebay. They went out Oct. 17, I guess. Hopefully any day now. Seems like it's been too long. Hopefully I get them.

If you got SAL shipping, it may well be a bit longer. I often choose SAL when buying from Japan because it can be significantly cheaper, but it usually takes around a month to get to me.

Yeah I just looked again and its the Economy. 35 - 45 days I guess. As long as I get them. It was only about $35 over retail with the postage I guess $115 total for both. As long as I get them.

Sanda has arrived, and he's looking good - especially side by side with Gaira.

...And here they are with everyone's favorite king of the monsters:
