    The giant Bullmark MAT figure is missing the gun accessory. I wonder how much that affected the price (because Y40,500 seems pretty reasonable to me for that huge vinyl).

    There was a vintage Guilala sitting on Y!J for ages a while back (bad paint and kinda over-priced)...but I don't recall what the foot stamp looked like... :/

    1.- Time thing ugo goods Bullmark ancient monster Godzilla remote control RC tin walking retro
    These were two auctions from different vendors which ended a few days apart.
    Does anyone know why the difference between the art of boxes between the two figures?
    Thank you!

    Just two different style boxes, if I'm not mistaken. No difference in terms of releases or anything. The artwork box is generally more desirable than the photography one.

    The artwork illustration box is the first release from my understanding, typically a tad more expensive. Also the first box is a bit larger.

    The box with the child on the front is the second release of the toy, still considered proper vintage but typically goes for a little less, and the box is smaller. I own the second release.

    No difference in the actual toys to my knowledge. There are quite a few variants within this particular larger form factor tin kaiju line out there (consisting of only four characters: godzilla, Jirass, Baragon, Gigan) but seemingly not as much variation in the godzilla tin as compared to the others. There may be one godzilla variant, and the chance for mismatched tin parts. Jirass uses the same body but with a plastic neck frill, there are a number of color combinations on the Jirass release.

    The brown battery opp remote is always the original on these, it is thin and cheaply made, prone to breaking. So you often see replacement remotes.

    I am an aspiring tin nerd, and have thought about starting a thread with my tin collection on SB. Doesn't seem to be much interest on the forum though.

    @Michael Beverage Thank you very much for all the information, I feel I learned a little more about Tin toys. To be honest I am very ignorant about these pieces, but some of them are simply beautiful.

    I stand corrected! :)

    I've always loved the Toho kaiju tins (Godzilla, Baragon, and Gigan)...and have definitely considered going after them in the past. But tin scares me. LOL

    Thanks guys-

    @Sanjeev you are correct sir, tin is an effing scary rabbit hole that I have recently pulled back from!

    I think I was wrong about Baragon-I don't remember seeing much variation in the lithography on that one either. But like vintage sofubi, the chance for mismatched parts and/or using whatever is around to assemble these at the time is high, with weird/rare variants popping up that I assume were factory assembled but one can never be sure I guess.

    The Bullmark tin Gigan is gorgeous, pretty damn rare, and ridiculously expensive. The ones I have seen pop up in the past several years are all mediocre condition with a huge price tag attached. I imagine I'll be hunting a good condition one for a long time.

    Agreed: the Gigan is absolutely stunning. One of the most beautiful toys I've ever seen...and that includes sofubi!

    Just as an aside, I wonder why they went with Baragon and Gigan to accompany Godzilla in this line. Why not other (more popular) kaiju??

    Godzilla vs. Gigan was released in Japan in 1972. Does that tie into the tin toy release date? I have also heard that Baragon was such a popular character that the toy companies prioritized those releases above other characters.

    That seems reasonable. I was almost thinking that Gigan's design was somehow more amenable to the tin forming/lithography process!

    I'd never heard that...but then again, it always puzzled me how Baragon got the standard- AND giant-sized treatment in the Bullmark sofubi lineup! Also...I was just watching Frankenstein vs Baragon just the other night. I'd totally forgotten that there were two endings to that movie!

    Speaking of vintage headers, anybody else follow all those recent auctions including an IKB header that went for 19K JPY?

    So amazing... and the original inspiration for the Bemon Kougai and Sea Monster kaiju. The seller also had quite a few other vintage headers up for auction:
