Can we please talk about the fact that, although an exclusive, Bandai is actually providing us with something unthinkable for some time now? It is unfortunately a Premium Bandai exclusive, but these days I suppose that's hard to avoid when a monster like Gaira is too easy to think of as being a hard sell to the mass retail audience. Here's to hoping Gaira is successful enough to warrant more Showa love and attention.
Also worth noting is that Gaira is 18cm tall, so don't expect a perfect fit next to some of the 8" Bandai toys, but it might be passable. Gaira retails for 3999 yen (heh) and ships in September.http://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000115722
