    What are the odds that the new Sofvi Life Giant Pretty Godzilla gets a wide release? How do we know if this colorway is truly limited to the show only vs a preview sale that will get wide distribution later ?

    I'm seeing this one labeled as an Anraku toy online. I could see that, but it is a distinct sculpt to the Godzilla in the Anraku thread. What's the story here?

    Anyone know the story behind this colorway? I’ve seen bootleg Z’s with a similar coloring.

    Also was told ( by August Ragone) this was the coloring that was used in the Manga.

    Finally! I have been anxiously waiting for Leopardon to be added to Medicom's lineup of super robots. A few fell short of my expectations (damn that Voltes V), but I think Bear Model nailed the proportions and details on this one.

    Another TOEI Spider-Man is also up for pre-order. This one is set in an action pose.

    yeah! This one is super nice. I’ve been after a bear model Big O for years. They make great robos

    Godzilla fans rejoice! For anyone who missed out on the Marmit Shin Godzillas in the past, MCT Tokyo has them up exclusively for sale to U.S. residents.

    The sculpt looks slightly modified from before. The head looks like it has been bulked up a bit, but it could just be the angle. At the very least, the hands are now facing up (previously down). Perhaps just old prototype photos?

    There is also a giant ver. scaled to 35.5cm which I believe is the first of its kind (correct me if I'm wrong).

    Definitely not my favorite Shin sculpt, and kind of a letdown coming from Marmit, but at these prices it is hard to resist.

    Niceeeee. Thanks for the heads up! Had to grab that clear red version. $35 DHL was a punch in the bag but I’ll live.

    Have not been the hugest Shin Godzilla fan myself(I’mma try to see it again though and see if it grows on me, sometimes it takes that) but that sculpt is gorgeous. Been really debating on grabbing one at some point.
