    I think I can't choose. M1 has so many great original sculpts, and many of them feel like iconic designs.

    That is a good shortlist. I might replace Dogora with Greenmons, myself.

    I think Hipporito Seijin is underappreciated and one of M1’s finest sculpts.

    I don't collect M1go but I often frequent this thread because of Lixx's avatar...thinking he's updated it.

    So this just popped up in the M1 IG feed. If Google translate is correct, Yuji confirmed this is the next trike:

    What is more exciting for me is that Hedorah is next after Baltan.

    Baltan is > Hedorah if you're Team Tsubu, but both pending events are exciting if you're a human being.

    The puzzle now is, how do we swing $60 retail joy rather than being subjected to the standard $120+ instant aftermarket?

    Easy...just spend hundreds of dollars on airfare to G-FEST or Monsterpalooza and--BAM!--$60 trikes. :lol:

    Every time I see some kaiju on a tricycle, I seriously have to sit down and visually imagine what it would look like descending from the heavens. It's quite something.

    M1 is planning to reissue this kit for Summer Wonder Festival. Only 7 pieces will be available for WF.

    The kit was first released for last Summer Wonder Festival on July 29, 2018. It is a 50 cm kit. Here are some pictures from last years WF to give you the feel of the size of it.

    Yeah, saw Kanegon kind of hidden in the FB thread without any info attached. Any idea if that's a proto or if it's (ahem) ready to roll? Not that I'm complaining at all, but I thought Hedorah was on deck.

    Oh, and...

    I know as much as you do. I thought Hedorah was on deck also as he posted a reply on Instagram to another person saying it was next.

    Quick PSA...if you're using Firefox and are suddenly having problems seeing IG posts in the thread, it's because Mozilla added the Facebook Container feature to the newest builds and it's on by default. The add-on is great most of the time, but it does get in the way here.

    Are there any freestanding Ultraman toys in the style of the M1 trike Ultraman? The little eyes and round helmet give it a cute look I'd love to see around a Buta standard size with joints. Apologies if this has been asked before.

    Was hoping to see this at the latest SuFest but it doesn't appear to have debuted yet. Irrespective of that, allegedly the line for M1Go at the show was MASSIVE and it was hard to score. Funny because when I went a couple of years ago I arrived late, casually strolled over and bought what I wanted from them.

    Well, there are several versions from Butanohana actually, though these are among some of the tougher to find Buta toys (which is already difficult company). These have plenty of articulation, and are as about as adorbable as they can come.

    I offer into evidence for your consideration, Exhibit OMB 23a:



    There is also a very fine and equally lovable B-Club mini Ultra, with arm/waist articulation:



    And beyond this we can go into the many versions from US Toys, which, while not having the aforementioned posability, offers your kawaii Ultra demand in spades:



    Then we have a few more from Marmit in the PB line,



    and - maybe the relative closest to what you are looking for with respect to an M1 mini - this wonderful Beta capsule-wielding fellow from the 'fireball' set,



    And actually, there are plenty more besides to fill in the gaps. (There are a lot of Ultra toys, trust me). So, basically, the answer here is there are ton of options available to you, and it really depends on what you are looking for.

    Thanks @ultrakaiju! That's a list that will keep me busy for some time, definitely. While I dig the Buta Ultras I got recently, the full kawaii look with super round eyes seems elusive. The M1 fireball and the Marmit PB on the left are the closest to what I had in mind, so I'll start the long search for those two and keep digging around for more sculpts :)

    M1 has been given permission from Tsuburaya Pro to release GID Jirass in the US as a G-Fest exclusive.

    Almost a guarantee. The trikes sell VERY well for them at shows. Was hoping to see the recently sneaked Kanegon and Baltan, but I think it's too soon. I'd expect to see a lot of Godzilla and Ultra Seven trikes, with maybe some Matangos.

    And even though the other dealers will descend on their booth like vultures before the floor opens on Friday, Yuji and Michi tend to be very good about making items available each day in waves, i.e. they won't put out everything on Friday but will stagger it over the weekend.
