Hm, I’d have preferred the ‘95 suit (with swap-out elbow spike arms!).

But this one does look pretty cool. I still kinda regret not getting the ‘96 version.

I figured out what is wrong with it, he doesn't look mean enough.

Yeah, the face (maybe just the eyes, even) don’t look fierce enough.

EDIT:
Comparing it to a few screenshots, two things stood out to me. The nose of the figure is too “upturned” making it look more cute and less sinister. The pupils on the eyes are pointed forward towards the front corner of the eye instead of being centered in the eye, which also somehow makes it look more cute and less mean.

Both things are VERY subtle, but they somehow have enough impact to create a rather noticeable difference in the “meanness” of his appearance.

I agree that the face is off. It's still a nice figure, but the distinct features (nose, eyes) that make this Gamera are lacking.

Well I ordered a KiryuGoji from Amazon to replace my defective one I got from AmiAmi and he too has jacked up eyes. -_-

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd my KiryuGoji replacement from Amazon has eyes even worse than the first one they sent me. It won't even let me order another replacement, only a straight up refund. WTF? That's three figures now in a row with bad eyes. How did Diego Doom get two with perfect eyes?

Damn that hella sucks. I wanted to get this KiryuGoji, but waited until it came out to see reviews. I started seeing quite a few complain about bad, misplaced, poorly painted, wonky eyes. It got to the point where everyone who received their figure with decent eyes posted pics and said they were relieved.

So the 62 version has been revealed. It looks pretty cool. I hope there is a Kong to go with him soon.

Hey, you found more pics than the ones on TK! Are there more? This guy looks incredible. I never bought the ‘64 because I didn’t like the articulation choices (or the size), but this guy looks great! Really makes me wish they’d do an all new ‘64 (with interchangeable GvTT and GTTHM heads)...

I'm going to wait on two things before I decide to get him:

1. If they do Kong to go with him.

2. I want to see the paint job of his eyes before I commit.
