Monsterarts Godzilla '54 arrived today.
Image

Here are some different suit actors' takes on it:

Haruo Nakajima style
Image

Kenpachiro Satsuma style
Image

Heretical GINO style (interesting to see it will balance like that)
Image

Tom Kitagawa style
Image

Mansai Nomura style
Image

And because we all know shodai-goji likes the ladies...

Since I put this in the wrong thread before...

A couple weeks ago I discovered Entertainment Earth had several of their Godzilla figures on sale (they still do!), so when I saw the figure below listed for roughly thirty-five dollars, I knew I had to act.

Image

At last I can join the Marmit appreciation club! despite the stock images, the color scheme looks pretty nice in person: it's sort of a dark sea-green with splotches of blue-gray. I admit, in the wrong lighting and angle, one might think the figure looks dirty or something; but I think it's a nice, subdued scheme for Goji, and it works extra well with the golden yellow fin highlights.

Spoiler Below:
ImageImageImage


It's my first Marmit, and my first Mosu-Goji; and I'm absolutely delighted to have him. :mrgreen:
Oh, and he's down to $33.90 now! I'm almost tempted to buy another one!!

In the meantime, these guys also came in recently:

Image Image

They're really cool, all three of them. Surprisingly, despite being less than enthusiastic about Heisei designs normally, the '89 has become my favorite.
Some comparison shots:

G'14 looks pretty good with them, but those BC minis... Ouch. :oops:

This lovely set came in today, courtesy of Showcase Daikaiju - the Hyper Godzilla History set:

Image Image

They're splendid figures, the lot of them: four inches tall and hyper detailed. They're kind of sticky, though (in the box too long?), and a couple of them want to fall apart.
This also marks my first Kinggoji and first 84goji!! (also second Mosugoji, second Desugoji, third Miregoji and fourth Shodaigoji)

These splendid figures just came in yesterday, courtesy of a couple collectors/sellers on Facebook:

...And this was passed on to me from my uncle: the Horizon 1993 Godzilla!

Finally broke down and got these even though the price seems a little steep. I guess with registered postage from japan $110 for the 3 Bandai, is not that bad. I remember payIng $10 - $15 each for this stuff shortly after being released years ago, now they cost two to three times as much. They must have been really popular. Glad I bought them though. Wish the Banpresto was a regular claw game toy and not a lottary Prize. I really want a large version of Shin Goji. The Sega is nice and solid ut so tiny. Wishing the bandai were at least 8" scale like the good old days.

What do you think of it? Is it choked up to everything it supposed to be? I collect pretty much everything in the SHMA line, except reissues, and I passed on this. The light up and sound didn't sell me. I have seen some video's and pics but I am still not wow'ed. The sculpt look GREAT though. If they made a watered down, in scale with the rest of the SHMA line version, I would pick it up.

Overall it's a great figure. The lights are good, but I do notice that the light doesn't extend all the way through the fins. This isn't captured on camera, but you do see it with the naked eye (even in total darkness). Sculp-wise, it's awesome. As for articulation, the jaw on mine is very tight until it's open a little bit. The legs don't have that much range of motion either. But, Heisei Godzillas are known for not moving their legs side to side that much. Sound is pretty great though. You can tell it's coming from small speakers, but it's good quality small speakers.

Awesome. I am still on the fence about this. I have a bunch of light up X-Plus RIC's already so the light up SHMA doesn't really wow me all that much and the audio, while cool, doesn't wow me either. The sculpt does look great. Maybe I will snag this if I find one on sale.

I've had box days nearly three days in a row now. My Ultra monster collection has exploded as a result, but Godzilla and Gamera are spoken for, too!

Big, BIG box day. Two packages containing some figures from the Ultraman Orb line (including Magatano Orochi) and the third with...

Image

X-Plus Godzilla 1984. Marks my second X-Plus 30cm figure. Also threw in a signed copy of issue 4 of Godzilla Oblivion because of a slight issue with shipping, which is an awesome bonus. Got from Vampire Robots, so use them. 'Kay!?

2016 turned out to be a huge collecting year for me, in the latter half; I just kept finding good deals for desired figures on eBay, HobbyLink Japan, Facebook, etc. Here's all (I think) I've obtained since my last post:

Spoiler Below:
Image
The Phunny Plush Godzilla and the Takara Tomy cars.

Image
Three awesome Vinyl Wars stylized figures: Bear Model Hedorah, Marusan Rodan 1956, and Marmit Monster Heaven Godzilla 1962.

Image
NECA's first Knifehead figure; looks nice alongside 6" vinyls and Tamashii figures.

Image Image
Godzilla 1964 Emergence - my first Monsterarts!

Image
The 1991 release of the old Bandai Antlar vinyl - probably the oldest figure in my collection.

Image Image
Big haul here - Gamera HG set 1, Battle Box Showa Ghidorah/Mothra larva, and S.H. Monsterarts Godzilla Rebirth!

Image
The Bandai 8" Gamera 1995.

Image Image
A bunch of Gamera HGs (and more), including the complete 3rd set!

Image Image
Another Vinyl Wars figure: Marmit's Semi-Real Godzilla 1962!

Image Image Image
SHODO's complete Ultraman VS set.

Image
A couple more Ultra monster vinyls: Golgolem and Natsunomeryu.

Image
A nice set of X-Plus Gamera crane prize figures; first box day of the new year!

Image Image
The first of two awesome arrivals from HobbyLink Japan: Legacy of Revoltech Legion and S.H. Figuarts Ultraman 50th Anniversary set!

Image Image
...And the second box, just arrived yesterday: S.H. Monsterarts Godzilla 1954!


I'm certain I more than doubled my colletion in the past few months. :lol: :oops:

X-Plus never seems to disappoint - and I don't even have any!*

Recently I discovered the complete Eiji Tsuburaya High Grade set selling for a good price on eBay; it arrived just yesterday:

Image

They're actually bigger than I expected!


I also have a big Gigan vinyl coming in soon (by Solvi Life? Vinyl Wars reissued it); I'll post pictures when it arrives.

*I actually have some of the old Gamera crane prize figures X-plus did for SEGA years ago; not quite the same, though.

I wasn't exaggerating when I said "big" before: he stands 11.5 inches tall, dwarfing nearly every other figure in my collection!!

^Haha! Yeah, the blue variant is a real eye-grabber. It's the Marmit Monster Heaven sculpt; I think this variant was reissued under the Vinyl Wars line. I found him for a great deal of $49.99 on eBay, almost by accident!
