I soon shall be; Booska all the way, of course.
I’ve bought a handful off of Manadarake, I regret paying the Mandarake prices, but I’m sure in a few years I won’t remember getting gauges on micro prices and I’ll just be happy that I have them.
I was given my first Marugacha of Booska for free from Marusan for delay shipping on a 450 Booska. Not really in to the Marugacha line, but I thought the Booska was well done and cute.
Hakaba no Garou exclusives.
@chimply.kaiju - I thought both of those vintage tributes were done very well, especially since chasing the original toys remains so very elusive for me. The pink Hedorah reissue is actually on flesh vinyl so it should be easy to identify as well as having gold eyes rather than the original silver eyes. The yellow Tokyo spray Hedorah reissue also has gold eyes rather than the original silver eyes. The silver-eyed Hawaiian King Ghidorah is reissued on flesh vinyl rather than the original orange vinyl. Hopefully, the changes help to easily identify a reissue versus an original figure.
Mark, I thought both were done very well myself. I was going to try and grab both. But unfortunately both are already sold out.
Any one know if I can visit bullmark studio in Tokyo and buy some kaijus there？Or they only accpect online order？
It's a mail order business, there is no physical store.
But they do not ship to oversea, right？
I missed something at SF80, and I see that still in stock online. So I think I can go to studio to pick it up by myself.
No, they do not ship overseas. You will have to use a third-party service like Buyee to buy from them.
Yes，I understand. Thanks
Love this guy, looking forward to seeing whats next in the Little series.
Recent sales from Marusan for Mandarake 2nd Indy Sofubi Festival.
Up for pre-order now from Bullmark.
I was wrong about this. A friend showed me pictures of a physical store that Bullmark was running in Asakusa in 2015. As far as i can tell it's not there any more, but if someone else has info, please share it. Thanks.
Can you share those photos? To my knowledge Bullmark does not have their own store front to sell their products. But they did have a temporary exhibition display at Hanayashiki store in Asakusa. They were mainly setup in part of the Ultraman Festival that is normally held during the summer.

That's definitely what my friend showed me, if he sends me the pics I will post them.
I wish that I could attend this:
I am really enjoying these new interpretations of rare vintage Bullmark Toho Kaiju variants. The King Ghidorah and Hedorah are a bit soft and squishy in hand which I find amusing.
@deafmetal That ‘Showa’ Ghidorah is lovely. I’ve been on the fence about pulling the trigger for one as I’m all out of space (lame excuse? )
It ends up being a pleasant surprise but the photos on Bullmarks site could use a bit tighter color correction, they seem so much lighter online than in person.
Wowee, wow, wow. That Ghidorah is incredible. The metallics on that Hedorah are insanely vibrant, too. And that Goji’s green vinyl base is so vibrant, with silver sprays that could reflect sun like a mirror. That’s an awesome, awesome trio.
A couple of great photos of the clear (translucent?) mini-JJ popped up on IG:
For those of you who have one of the new Bullmark Hedorahs, how does it compare to the M1GO version? I saw some discussion that the Bullmark might have come from new tooling.
Looks like Marusan is bringing a bunch of Tsuburaya stuff to kaiju con. i was hoping for some toho stuff, since its so hard to get here but ill gladly take Jirass
I might have the tagging wrong on this but looooook!!!
^^ Yes, please.
