For sale or like previews?

Probably in Jan, with March releases. I imagine Godzilla and Kong will be first wave with maybe some enemy monsters/variants down the line. Wonder if they’ll do a figure of the little kong fella.
I’m all in for figures of these new titans. Skar King will be an interesting one with the spine decor (whip?) he’s got going on and the blue eyes. Down to have gauntlet Kong and Pinkzilla as well. Lil Kong would be a fun one but I do wonder if it’ll be closer in size to the Gojibans and Chibis, or if they won’t care and just make him as tall as the other characters. Knowing Bandai, money’s on the latter.

Even with shipping it was well worth it. Beyond happy to have it in my collection since KKvG is so special to me. Now I just need a KingGoji vinyl to complete the duo.

Any tips I should know since it’s an older figure? I wanna do my best to keep it in a nice condition. I take good care of my vinyls but I wanna be extra careful for King Kong here.
Yoooo. Congrats on the find. Newer fans seem to like dunking on '63 Kong. But, I'm with you. KKvG is special. I'd love to have a diorama replica of Godzilla and King Kong smashing the pagoda.

Yep. And knowing BANDAI it will be as tall as adult Powerfist-Kong. Maybe even 8" to mimic the giant silhouette from the trailer.

Well it has to be big enough to attack humans once it comes to life

That, Godzilla 2024, I think were leaked out a few months ago with supposed listings of Frankenstein and Orga... And apparently even Scylla? (kaijuconnoisseur on Instagram compiled it all into a post, and put it with what I assume are ultra Kaiju, and I have zero knowledge on that, so it might not be the KOTM Scylla, but hey, cool if it is.)

I would never ever expect them to do MMS Scylla because of the legs. It's too lanky of a monster, and there's no way to cheap out and tuck them to the body.
Then again, Legion had some nice leg sculpting.

The reason I’m skeptical is because we still never got an MMS for the other MUTO or any Skullcrawlers, both of which are much more significant/known than Scylla. I do like Scylla so I wouldn’t mind them making a figure of it, but I’d sure be confused if we got that over the former two.

I had no idea Frankenstein and Orga were rumored to be here soon so that is exciting!!!
I looked at his listing and it appears Scylla is an Ultra Monster

But still to be getting a MMS Frankenstein and new Orga is awesome!

Does anyone have a copy of said list? I always take them with a grain of salt but as of late they’ve been pretty on the nose.

Whooo. A Gaia wave of figures. Thank God.

Pardon the brief off-topic, but what thread should be used for the Good Smile Super-X and Super X-2 that just got announced?

I'm not saying I doubt aspects of the list above, but if Orga and Frankenstein were coming out (presumably for retail) by March wouldn't we know about them already? The 1955 figures came out in late November and we knew about them since when? Mid summer?

Right how honestly the only thing I care about is which 5 monsters are going to win (or have won?) that Godzilla Store poll. With the top 5 getting made regardless we win either way.

IIRC there's a GoodSmile thread already somewhere in this subforum. If not, a new one can be made!

There have been instances of figures just showing up, or being shown off a month before.
Spoiler:
-1.0's Pre-nuked form
(you can discuss that here) showed up mid december with an image and is being released a month later. I recall you and a few others wondering where the 1955 figures were as we didn't have images of them a month or two before they were out as well. Other things like the Bagan come out of nowhere. I know some of these are special cases, but the fact that we don't have images of Frankenstien or Orga shouldn't mean much.

Frankenstien feels really obvious in retrospect too. It will pair nicely with baragon.

Bagan was a Godzilla Store exclusive. Exclusives don't seem to take long at all from reveal to release. And the Minus One figure B figure was withheld for spoiler reasons.

If Orga and Frankenstein were Godzilla Store releases, not knowing when they're coming out makes sense. If they were retail we'd probably end up knowing about them for months before they come out.

Still seems weird to me that the person who made this list (if it's 100% accurate) has known about certain unrevealed upcoming figures for a ridiculously long time.
