Anything is possible but define "relatively cheap". :lol:
I have the complete set which I would consider selling or perhaps breaking up. Also see the G'64 spotlight for the X-Plus Mosu-Goji.

And I'll be posting when I get home from work tonight!

Meanwhile, a hint:

It'll be a monster who appeared in multiple Showa movies.

EDIT: BTW, gforever, I just glanced at your profile and saw that you're at UMass. I went to Hampshire for a few years! Actually, UMass was the only one of the five colleges I never took a class at...

I find these threads to be a lot more enjoyable than the "Viewing Threads" have been lately (those threads have begun to feel like a chore).

As far as Eabaker's hint...the first kaiju that comes to my mind is Anguirus 68

Hmm... if multiple is "more than one" it could be, Anguirus, King Ghidorah, Gigan, Mothra, Baragon, Minya, Manda, Rodan, Varan, King Kong, Kumonga, Kamakuras or Gorosaurus.. not sure how helpful this hint is :lol:

I meant more than one Showa Godzilla movie, and I wasn't thinking of stock footage, so that rules out Baragon, Manda, Varan, and King Kong.

Anyone have any more pics of the "M1Go Black Spray GMK 2004" ...it's the variant made from pink vinyl, painted a really dark brown. For some reason, it looks really, really cool to me. I mean, it should, pink is an odd color for Godzilla, but it works on that figure, kind of breaks up the brown a bit.

Hell, I'd be interested in looking at any more M1 GMK Godzilla pics if you guys have any. I think it's there best Godzilla to date. I don't own one yet, but maybe one day that GMK figure will be mine.

I've been doing a lot of "catch-up" with my collection over the past year or so. Yesterday a few long-desired figures finally arrived - including the Bandai 8" Godzilla 2001.
Here's a group shot of him with the NECA, the Hyper minifigure, and the GMK mini set figure:

Actually, all of these are additions from within the last six months. Sokogeckigoji was a nice modern interpretation of Showa suit aesthetics, in my opinion, so it's great to finally have this suit represented in my collection.
