    My bad, @eckotyper! Initially, I took the image as me having to finally upgrade my mobile app! But then I found the horror of realization. :lol:

    @Michael Beverage came by my house and took some pretty sweet shots of the "Troll King" Galligantus I'll have available at my show "Kaiju Cult" this Saturday in Atlanta

    The "Famous Monsters" text is a glow tee that I got from Justin at Five Points. Figured it'd be a pretty cool way to go along with the GID Galli.

    haha, I can totally see what you mean I guess I look at is as its $125 more to get the helmet with a painted one. After I saw this on his site it made it kinda seem more worth it consider people are starting to charge alot for resin made stuff these days

    https://www.justinishmael.com/blogs/news/visit-w-han-cholo-making-galligantus-helmets

    and I dunno I got some pretty good stuff from the knife stores at the mall, I still got a pretty sweet sword I wear on my back and a chalice I drink my rootbeer from on D&D night!

    I actually got to touch the helmet at Five points Fest, it's thick and heavy, not some flimsy metal. Can't say it's worth $150, but to each his own...

    You can put it on your penis and go "GRRAOORRGHDGHHGUCXGL..!!!" while shaking it menacingly at passers-by like a spiked mace. That alone is clearly worth $150.

    I have to sort of agree with David. While I am thrilled to see new versions of this two-headed guy, I do think the pricing structure is a bit of a stretch. I know stuff is getting more and more expensive, but I think as the original blanks were already comparably high, and were sort of 'special' release, I hate to think that as a starting bar, with these kind of leaps upwards. I generally don't go for unpainted figures, but as it is, among this trio of choice, my selection would actually be for the blank figure. The paint application, while very nice and well done, is just not to my personal taste - too much 'figure' and not enough 'fun toy' - but of course that is probably not reflective of the major market for this type of guy at all. [And of course, all of the customs I have seen so far are in this vein, and people showing off their 'mad painting skills'....sigh.] I think it would be interesting to see one of these with some nice subtle, general tones, a la Yuji-style, and less focused on detail (but of course, it would have to be done right). The helmet, well now, I don't think I can add more at this point; it has already been summed up so perfectly. '_'

    I don't usually double up on sculpts but I couldn't resist a mixed parts lucky bag situation - very happy with my second Galligantus!

    Unfortunately, for overseas countries, they charge me 25 usd for postal charges, more expensive than the toy himself.

    Zero interest in this stuff but have had a similar experience with a few items recently. Going through the whole process of filling in a shit-ton of details, virtually to the point of hitting 'PAY' only to find out that shipping is $60 or so on a $30 toy or $40 on a $20 magazine . . . f*ck that for a game of soldiers! :roll:

    £££'s saved and random spontaneous purchases avoided!

    Loving all the photos of Galligantus--Justin is really killing it with this release.

    I've got one painted w/helmet waiting for me back in the states!

    Speak for yourself. I got nothing against 2 men in bed OR a two headed Giant. My brothers shared a bed, big deal... Ill take a collective sigh when people stop freaking out about same sex couples.

    PS here is my Galligantus 2 Headed Giant and a little guy too! Love the sculpt, header cards, and Justin! Just ordered a GID version so I can have somebody spray it up proper.
