    Coming soon for you Touma fans is a standard size figure designed by Touma and produced by the friendly people are MONSTOCK. This looks to be a big and beefy figure. Not sure about the colorway but the first release will be at MONSTOCK on March 2nd, celebrating MONSTOCKS 1st Anniversary and TOUMA Art Independence day on March 3rd. Looks to be 8800 yen, and if I am reading this right that is a special price for this "prototype" release. I think the one below is the original sculpt, not the colorway being offered next month.

    This has nothing to do with Wonderwall. Completely produced by MONSTOCK with help from Atelier G-1 and designed by TOUMA and made in Japan at the same factory that makes all the good stuff you guys love. I finally saw it today and its much better person. This one was black vinyl with silver flake in it. The first painted one is going to be pink! Here are some picts, its about 9 inches tall:

    I thought Magman was acceptable, as far as KFGU is concerned. I think the Touma knuckles on this one are more offensive than the Touma mouth for me.

    Overall it seems too Godzilla, and the price is a bit steep, especially considering there will probably be countless colorways if it is anything like every other Touma release. If the inevitable GID version is well done, maybe.

    Maybe if it is vinyl. But if it is that cheap stuff used to make the bears and dragons forget it!

    The wings broke off easily on the GID dragon I bought.

    That's right. They should at least learn to use vinyl quality similar to the Magman's or better.

    Like the big yellow Darkron from last year - IIRC, its horns/spikes were also articulated.
