I picked up the Bandai Shin Ultraman ultra action figure. And I've been continually impressed with this spindly little guy's ability to hold endless different poses. Has Bandai ever done other figures like this outside of the Ultra line, at this price point?

Just ordered the Mondo Godzilla 1989. God my wallet hurts. Probably going to have to sell some figures for this.

Playmates Super Spoiler Figure That Nobody Knows Is In The Movie.

Very nice figure. Kinda wish he came with an Osprey instead of the HEAV though. They look lame.

Welp, thanks to DirektorSplennic I am now a proud owner of the Bandai DX Godzilla 2004, a figure I quite literally did not know existed until mere minutes ago. Kinda broke my "no more big purchases" allowance but its worth it. And you could imagine the paranoia I went through trying to make sure I actually got the right figure. I wanted to check the individual scales and such to make sure I wasnt duped into getting the Banpresto or standard Bandai figures. Thats the kind of person I am lol. Guess what I should have done first was, idk, read the GIANT "280 mm" LABEL right smack dab in the front of the box. I really am too paranoid.
Image
Anyway, once I verified it I used the "Make Offer" feature to snaggle the price down to just $105, so not too much harm done to my wallet.
Thanks again DirektorSplennic. I truly knew I needed this thing the second I saw it.

Added in 4 minutes 54 seconds:
Also, my justification for getting this when I already have the standard GvMG figure: my goal was to have every Godzilla suit in vinyl, and those two movies TECHNICALLY had different suits, the second of which I do not own yet. So THERE.

Glad you could find one though! One of these days I'll get my hands on one.

Yeah it's the price. I realllly don't feel like dropping $100 even though I love that thing. I've gotta control myself when it comes to using my allocated hobby money. Thanks for looking though! I'll probably get it when I get a more stable job that isn't sculpting commissions.

There’s also a DX Kiryu that pairs with that DX Godzilla. It’s awesome with lights and sounds and whatnot. But buyer beware. I had one since it came out in 2003 or 2004 but had to throw it away about a year ago. It’s a hard plastic figure with soft rubber parts covering an internal hat plastic skeleton of sorts. After 15 years or so, the rubber and the hard plastic reacted with each other in a bad way and the hard plastic began crumbling apart at the slightest touch. It was totally unsalvagable. I still have the DX Goji in perfect shape, but Kiryu (or the pile of rubble that was left of Kiryu) went in the garbage.

I was tempted to get that one as well, but I decided that the Bandai America Kiryu was a good enough stand in. Its about the right height.

Aside from that, I know I mentioned it earlier in this thread, but LOOK AT IT. I didn't expect in to come today and it looks WAY MORE AWESOME in person

Nice grab. Was never big on those theater exclusive figures and stuff but I can definitely see their appeal.

Im not into them either, I actually kinda hate translucent figures, if anything because its probably the laziest "paint job" you could do. But the Godzilla Forever line is just so cool. I love how they turned scenes from the movies into screen accurate paintjobs. Especially on this guy.

Got one of my holy grails, being the Mothra Kaiju Legends Godzilla 1998
Image
As well as from the same seller (RIP City Kaiju, great guy, super easy to work with) I got the Godzilla Collection Godzilla 1993
Image
I have the 92 from the Memorial Box, but I wanted it in 8 inch scale and I technically didn't have a 93. Plus, this specific figure is actually signed by Koichi Kawakita. I paid $100 for it.

Recently bought the Kaiyodo Godzilla 1964 and 1989 20cm kits. 1964 is about halfway finished. This is my first kit and I'm having a lot of fun!

I swear Im on a roll for finding figures I never would have imagined owning for dirt cheap. I definitely didn't think today I would pay $30 for this bad boy, but here I am
Image

The seller simply listed it as "Godzilla Toy", and I doubt they had any idea what this was/how rare it is. I actually don't know for certain that it is rare per say, but I swear I never see it on eBay and when I do its always in the $100-200 range.

Might be a bootleg. The original didn't have pupils and the plastic looks different.
