    I was looking at my Marusan Giant Gorilla on the shelf and thinking, "I like him. He's quirky. But his paint is a bit boring." But then today I brought him into different lighting and noticed the figure is covered in a very thin layer of silver. I thought I was crazy at first, but there are a few spots where it is thicker and clearly there. I don't think it shows up well in photos, but I'm digging it. It's subtle and encourages study of the piece to really appreciate it.

    Met up with @Roger today to compare our blue giant gorillas. Left one was molded in lighter blue and called the American version. Mine is on the right. We believe there may be another shade of blue out there.

    For those still tracking the Bullmark Hedorah clear "Aurora" versions, a third variant with red eyes has been spotted in the wild:

    This one seems to be the closest yet to the original prototype photo.

    Also, this new reissue of the mid-size Earthron is the cutest damn thing I have seen in a while (other than perhaps that vintage OG on YJA last week):

    That looks like a new sculpt to me. Here's a reissue:

    The Bullmark Little series are all new sculpts. Here is my original. I plan to pre-order the new Bullmark Little version. I will show comparison picks one day to the original.

    @Roger @chimply.kaiju - Ah, thank you for the correction, gents. I was wondering why I was finding it to be so incredibly striking, especially after eyeballing a vintage mid-size just a week or two ago. I did not yet put the two photos side-by-side. Thanks!

    I’m not familiar with this kaiju, but something about this toy resonates with me so much.

    That's not my picture, I only have the mid size and giant reissues. I have originals of Astron's ghost, but not Astron himself.
