You have pics of the other figures?


The others are at home, so I can't get any pics at the moment, but I'll try to remember to do so tonight.

As a fan of the '62 suit, I'm sure you'll dig that figure. I think it's one of the best looking pieces in my collection.

I'm passing out for the night soon...too lazy to take pics of my 54 30cm Godzilla right now, so I'll just post a link to some decent pics and hope I feel up to taking some actual pics tomorrow.

It's actually a bootleg cast from a Kaiyodo kit.

Man that Bandai Museum '54 looks amazing. That's my favorite '54 figure I've seen so far. Never knew it existed before.

...These threads are going to be really bad for collectors out there.

I am not sure whether this should be included on a technicality or excluded on a technicality, but i couldn't think of a better spotlight scenario so here it is

Figure: X-Plus Godzilla 1954 Prototype
Size: ~11"

Image
Image

Its based on the clay sculpture prototype that the 1954 suit was based on rather than the suit itself. I really like this figure, but i love the idea of the figure more. Apparently there were 5 different color schemes for this figure, so if anyone has any of the other ones (this is the brown non-painted).. i would love to see them.

Now they're showing up.

BTW Are we not allowed to post a pic of something if somebody else has posted it?

I think dupes should be fine... otherwise Tuesday nights might become a mad rush to post before anyone else.

Yeah, as often as possible I'llt ry to post unique images, but considering that I work in the evnings, and most of my collection is at home, I'd be utterly screwed over if there were a strict "no dupes" rule.

I got pretty lucky to ahve a unique figure sitting on my desk this time.

If I had my choice on this figure I would have gotten the grey one over the brown one, but this thread is the first time i have seen the grey one outside of the CT database

Yeah, I have the grey version as well but it's packed away in storage with about half of my collection right now.

I also got it when it first came out. It's a really great figure and was incredibly cheap when it first came out. I think I paid $25 or something ridiculous for it.

Yeah that's how much I paid, I got the G2k Banpresto for that price as well.

i think actually bought this figure on the merits of the Banpresto G2K figure alone. Way back then i didn't even know there were different versions of it, it was just what the anime shop in Ann Arbor had in stock

A few more that haven't been posted by anybody yet. My fiancee took these, because she's much better than I am at taking pictures at close range and keeping them in some measure of focus.

The second one is the 2004 Micro Man figure. Tha hands and feet are separate pieces which plug into the limbs of the figure inside.

The third is from the Hyper Godzilla series, specifically as reissued in the Godzilla History Set.
