    My collection of Godzilla mini Bullmarks. I may not have every paint variant yet, but I have managed to get at least one of every sculpt, so that's one accomplishment down :)

    Well, you're getting there. That looks fantastic. Especially loving the King Ghidorah cluster.

    Great thread. I adore the Bullmark minis, and I also collect the M1 reissues which have some great colors/sprays.

    @AWMGodzilla62 great group, that pendant is really awesome. Is it a Bullmark as well?

    @Kerk1 Yes, the goji pendant is a tiny Bullmark:

    Here is a size comparison to the Bullmark mini and mid-size:

    @scobot - Thank you for the correction. Any additional info on the pendants? I had noticed the listing at clubtokyo.org has it under Bullmark.

    You are to fast for me Scott. :razz:

    @deafmetal To reconfirm what @scobot said, the Godzilla pendant is by Nikko. It was released in the 1970's as part of the other Ultraman pendants that were produced by Nikko for 150 yen each. It hanged with the other Ultra pendants on a large header card that had Ultraman artwork on it. The Godzilla pendant isn't a sculpt based on any of the films. It is also not an official Toho Godzilla license. It is a dinosaur knockoff to resemble Godzilla to most likely escape licensing from Toho. On the foot the marking is copyrighted to Tsuburaya Pro. I am going to paraphrase what Yuji Nishimura of M1 wrote in his book 1996 Kaiju Hero Treasury Appraisal Catalog, "The markings on the pendant are copyrighted to Tsuburaya Pro. However, this is clearly Godzilla". He does list it as "Godzilla pendant" in the book.

    @chimply.kaiju - Excellent information, and nice reference to yet another book that is on my want list. I see those Ultraman & fake(!) Godzilla pendants listed as Bullmarks quite often.

    That pendant is awesome! I believe these guys may come from the same set. Can @scobot or @chimply.kaiju confirm? The feet are marked tsuburaya but not bullmark. These are some of my favorite vintage non bullmark minis.

    And here is my modest mini bullmark ultras, minus windam stuck in a box in tokyo, to contribute to this great thread

    @gazpacho - Yeah man they are also Nikko... way cool!

    The Kanegon is especially nice and is almost Buta I think

    I had to look up a book that was referenced here and got lost for 40 minutes. Remembered some stuff that I've forgotten as I obsessed on my own stuff, namely, you guys really, really know this stuff. Awesome and a little intimidating, but mostly awesome.

    Now that you mention that, it does look like a Buta kind of sculpt.

    ^ What a wonderful sales thread! Tell me, are you offering them as a lot or individually?

    @toothaction - for a second you genuinely had me worried I'd put them on the wrong thread!
