    Probably separate pieces. If anyone has a fiber optic camera that Dave can borrow...
    No idea about these but I am working on getting answers.

    Oh yeah, she confirmed the teeth are separate pieces that were made somewhere else. There are also pegs for spines to fit in to Goji's back, maybe they were made the same way as the teeth.

    Thanks Roger, for pulling together all that extra information. I sort of was guessing that about the teeth and extra spines, but it really is nice to have confirmation. I admit I am a little sorry that this sort of 'escaped' from M1 through the loss of the business, and it makes me wonder what else is out there. But I don't (and wouldn't) take this at all [FWIW] to mean that they begrudge Dave or anyone from rescuing these pieces. Sad that it happened in other words, but the mold will continue to be appreciated, and at least ended somewhere they know now. I doubt that it would have necessarily been 'revived' as this was a partial piece for a very specific special release in any case.

    PS - +333 bonus points to Roger for having all the inside track :dam:

    Postscript: Dave offered to send the mold back to M1GO but Michi said it's ok. I told them if they ever want to produce these busts again, they know where to find the mold. ;p

    Dang! That's a pretty awesome piece for the collection! Congrats! Looks like a great display piece that would appeal to kaiju collectors and regular schmucks equally.
