    Great group Mark, I still thinking that you should make an article or a technical sheet of each of your Gojis. It’s very hard to choose one side but this time I go with the green team:mrgreen:

    Superb post, and of course a gobsmacking collection, Mark. I fully back Roger's suggestion - you need to start a sheet detailing all these variants (and a [personal] history for each why not? ;) ). I am going to have to speak out here for team blue, just because it deserves some love and is utterly as classic as it comes.

    @Alebrije @XVivaHateX @ultrakaiju - Thank you, gents. I have been talking to Alebrije/Roger for a while now about a dedicated thread in the vintage forum. My goal would be for it to be a timeline reference sheet, along with a space for people to post their own examples and share info. I have a draft started along with a pile of example photos. I should have more free time in the near future to work on this. There is still a lot of mystery surrounding some of the early runs and the unstamped j-tails that are out there. I wish I could sit down with Shuji Kajimoto (is he still living?) or Yuji Nishimura to try and gain more insight into some of these. I have ran this topic to ground with Eiji Kaminaga and have politely asked if he could curate a Marusan TV episode regarding the earliest runs. The best new examples I have seen lately are the displays (usually Yuji's) at the Marusan Toy Festivals.

    Very happy to add this guy to the collection. One of my favorite monsters, and a wonderful figure.

    Superb addition to the family, Paul! So many vintage beauties to see and chase, but that exact Sea Bones has had my heart since I first laid eyes on him. Great toy from one of the weirdest toku episodes ever.

    Thanks,D! Yeah, I know what you mean. I've been smitten with this toy too, ever since I first saw him. The colors are great. He really pops a lot more than most vintage figures and the blue on lighter blue looks very nice. There's a great repro of him that has a more true to the episode color palette, that I think looks really good too.

    Here is what is left of my collection as I prep for The Dependz Age. Many bull minis and a mere handful of reg sizes, but mostly Old Ones; bull, bandai, marusan and marmit, a few miura. Ignore the upper right shelf; a couple that I'm keeping for me and some give away things.

    @chimply.kaiju - Excellent pick-up on the Bullmark tin sign. Are you going to incorporate it into a toy display?

    Thanks guys. @Alebrije It is made of tin. Old Ultraman Taro toy display from at 1973 or older. At the bottom you can see holes. This is where they had the middle size figures hanging.

    Not my picture. Now I need to find a bunch of unopened figures to hang.
