    Thanks Steve-and I agree, I much prefer them bent and twisted. It gives each one a personality of its own.

    The bends/twists are intentional. They're meant to depict the Tokyo Tower after it's been partially melted by Godzilla's breath. ;)

    A few of those twists are an artifact of my bourbon breath I believe.

    The towers were recoiling in horror.

    Here is a frankensteined giant goji with the rare greenish torso and more common tan legs, arms, tail and spine insert. Click through to see the detail of the back.

    I have a few other giant goji variants I need to post over here.

    @Michael Beverage - Did you bag that bad dad? Love that green vinyl variant, even on a single piece!

    Thanks man. I did-I picked it up a year or so ago. It sat on the ‘bay for months and the seller was willing to come down on price a good bit after a while. Tis a beauty.

    @Michael Beverage - That is excellent, and a very nice grab on that one. It is such an interesting piece of history there. Even over a year later, I am still very excited for you, haha. I had a photo of the green one on YJA as the background on my tablet for years. The paints looks so great on that vinyl color.

    Please post more photos of your collection. We also need to update this thread with photos of Yuji's blue one, and that unpainted green blank that was at the last Marusan Toy Festival. :mrgreen:

    Reviving a super old thread for a question.... Does anyone have an idea why the paint on the Bullmark giant Godzilla is usually so worn? I feel as if I don't see that degree of paint wear on most other vintage sofubi....

    It is a good question, though. This extends even to the other giant size vinyls, e.g., Marusan originals, Daikyo giant dinos. I'd like to attribute it just to play wear, but it's so pervasive across this size class that I wonder...

    Yeah I was wondering if the larger size meant that these toys were thrown around more....

    My guess would be they used a less expensive paint because they had so much surface to cover and it didn’t bond as well. Does someone want to send theirs to Wondergoblin and pay for a chemical analysis :lol:
