I got the Marmit mail order 1994 Godzilla today.

Seriously, I really like the body on this one, and the paint definitely enhances the sculpt of the back fins. I'm even willing to forgive the gold spot on the chest thanks to the nice, subtle blue wash on most of the body.

In fact, I love this angle. Very movie-accurate:

But the head on this one really brings the entire figure down. It's not even the size of the head that bothers me (the '94 Godzilla was quite the pinhead) but that chunk of undetailed vinyl that passes for the interior of the mouth. On top of that I can't stand how the eyes were painted. The gold eyes and forward eye placement on the show exclusive version looks much nicer than the silver crosseyed look of the mailaway.

Thanks to CT, I am now the proud owner of DINO TANK! (Half dino, half tank, all awesome!)
He's on my shelf next to Kame Bazooka (half turtle, half bazooka, all awesome!)

Good for you, I've already got the latest version of Dinotank as well and he is definitely all-awesome.

Just so happens that I won and already received some stuff from Mike at CT as well - Tempera Seijin, both original and Mebius versions, and Guts Seijin from Mebius. Just leaves me with both versions of Zarab Seijin to track down, and I'm good to go. I'd go after a vintage Guts too, but... eh, it hasn't aged as well as some of the other seijin figures.

I've gotten stuff from Mike off the CT marketplace as well. The Dino Tank is a very good figure! The last thing I got from Mike was the Bear Model Nonmalto from Ultraseven.

That Ex-Red King looks neat...so neat I may try to pick it up sometime.
I really wish I had 1. more ultra kaiju and 2. more room for aforementioned Ultra Kaiju.

Nice pics Ultraseven. I also picked up the Imperizer today. Maybe i'll pick up the Fire Litora next time i'm toy shopping. I hope Bandai releases a figure of Lunatyx or Banpira sometime soon.

EX Red King is already on my want list for sure, just haven't gotten it yet. Fire Littora probably as well, but I'm a bit iffy on the colors and would have definitely preferred a normal-color version. Probably an exclusive-to-be, sadly!

And forget Banpira, I want a six-inch Nova. :D

So does anyone have any good sources for bandai ultra-kaiju here in the states? A lot of it on ebay is coming from Japan, which is fine except for the high shipping costs and the length of time it takes to get stuff. Looking around at some of the toy stores I have bookmarked it looks like they USED to carry the stuff but don't have much of a selection now.

I'd LOVE to have a six-inch Nova. They've released a 3-inch one in the candy series (which I own and love) so they hopefully we get a bigger Nova.

As much as it's tiring to see Marmit put out so many double-casted vinyl figures these days I have to admit the style is really growing on me. Some of these toys look fantastic when you finally see them in person and end up making great impulse buys. :lol:

Case in point: I picked up these Godzilla and Guilala figures at Toy Tokyo in NYC yesterday. The Godzilla is colored my favorite shade of blue and the Guilala looks a lot nicer than I expected it to be. Those metal antennae really give it a lot of character. Can't wait til the standard paint variant comes out.

Totally not as cool as Mike's Guilala (even the Mire-Goji looks stunning, with that color), but I did pick up some kaiju recently.

First one was no big deal, but the third-generation Baltan Seijin figure, 6" Bandai. All I need now are Baltan Junior, the Ultra Fight Baltan, Mecha Baltan, Powered Baltan, Cosmos Baltan, at least one clear blue Baltan... ugh.

The next thing kinda came out of nowhere. BigBadToyStore somehow landed some old stock of Tederos figures, by Marusan. Only one they have to offer is thankfully a kaiju I missed before and wanted, Ebireon. Still on sale, at a clearance price, here!

Brings my Tederos collection to a whopping... two. :lol:

For a little birthday present, I bought myself the chest-wound Godzilla figure from the Ultimate Monsters 2 set. I timed it right so it arrived today. :-) Fun birthday.
I've been trying to locate that great Monster Heaven Gigan with little results.

Some new toys today...

The latest in a long line of Marmit Burning Godzilla figures comes from the World Character Con. The colors are growing on me, though I think it would have looked better without the red paint on the body. I like the gold paint and glitter though, and the color combo works nice on the face. The vinyl quality seems downgraded on this one though, very stiff and light. The arms, head and tail also sit very loose in their sockets, making the entire figure seem cheap. Personally, I would love to see Marmit do a version of this figure with painted on burning highlights like the Bandai Creation figure.

My disappointment with the Marmit figure was immediately set aside when I got a load of M-1's amazing new Guiliala. First off, this sucker is big. At 11 inches tall this guy is bigger than most of the Pilot Ace figures in my collection and is one substantial chunk of vinyl. The sculpt captures the fantastic vintage charm we've come to expect from M-1 and I love the paint. M-1 always hits them out of the ballpark. Their figures are always worth the wait.

You have to be referring to Lollipop Guild Godzilla, and I think it's intentionally missing for VERY obvious reasons. :lol:

EDIT: Darn, guess not. I didn't realize Mike would try so hard for being a completist with these.

The Lollipop Guild Godzilla came out before they really started pumping these variants out. If I could go back and pick it up I would, but I have no idea where to find one now.

Was that a secret figure or something? I didn't even know it was coming out.

If Marmit was going to try to legitimize what their Burning Godzillas represent, I'd say this one is supposed to be when the Super X-3 is trying to cool Godzilla off.

But when I look at the head, I see only one thing.

"Why so serious?" :lol:

But OF COURSE it had to be a secret figure. None of the really cool variants get to be affordable.
