    This towering hunk of sofubi weighs 4.6lb/2kg! I am shocked at the size and heft of the DX. Also, I'm thrilled that the first release was made incorrectly at the factory with a "vintage" yellow vinyl. It looks like a perfect match with the OG Bullmark family. Show the love for M1-GO indeed... this is just unbelievable!

    @deafmetal : I was not aware that there was a problem at the factory with the color but I know there was later another release with a bright yellow, can you say more?

    Another size scale with a mini U.S.TOYS :

    @Fedhai - If I am translating the M1GO blog correctly, the first batch of yellow vinyl from the factory did not match brighter yellow sample color, but it looked similar to the vintage Bullmark yellow, so they decided to release it for WonderFest as an exclusive run. I believe there were sixty (60) pieces in total with the vintage yellow. M1GO accepted mail order for the brighter yellow vinyl version as a second run (with delivery at the end of April):

    @deafmetal Thanks for the info man, curious to see the difference between the 2 yellow.

    The above photo was posted by Yuji on his FB page first before sofvi.tokyo.

    Other photos posted by Yuji of the WF color vinyl to match the original Bullmark Hedorah.

    @chimply.kaiju - Anthony, thank you for posting all the photos from FB. Really cool to see those direct color comparisons. I have also been admiring the paintwork, which has some nice subtle sprays tucked away within the vintage tribute:

    Do you know if Yuji hand-painted all of these?

    @deafmetal @chimply.kaiju Thanks for the pictures and the making-of history guys, the difference is very subtle but I prefer my retro yellow mustard version.

    Mark,

    Yuji did paint them all. Sorry, I try posting the video from FB. But it's private unless you are a FB friend with Yuji. Here is a screen shot from the video of Yuji painting the WF versions.

    As was I. I came across a couple new reproductions, as well as a couple of the oroginal(?) releases while in Tokyo. They’re insanely big, but just as cool to boot. Great size for hugging.

    Check out the size of the vinyl bag for the DX:

    I might display M1 header cards inside of it and hang it on the wall.

    Oh I wish I could've grabbed one of these. Love that yellow vinyl too. Thumbs up to those who were able to score one.

    @Shankweather - Great collection! Your photo also really shows just how much of a beast the GMK sculpt is compared to the other gojis.

    "Chasing the littles" sounds pretty illegal! But no, I'm not interested in M1 minis.
