    Wow amazing i never knew that these godzillas came as blank dolls for children to paint them......but that is some steep price!!!! are all of these double stamp destined to be painted by children....?
    thanks @Alebrije and @deafmetal for all the knowledge shared.

    Not necessarily all the paint-your-own Gojiras come with the double stamp marks, even there are some without stamps, why the double stamp or why some were produced without stamps is a topic that I have talked a lot with @deafmetal, It is a very controversial subject with some very interesting theories, that I would like later we can discuss in a special topic for the ´66 vintage standard Goji. I have had the luck of having several talks with Mark which I feel very honored because I would consider it my Goji sensei.

    @fosa comun - The unpainted blank edition was called rakugaki or graffiti style with light blue vinyl. There were a few other Ultra kaiju produced like this by Marusan in the late 60's. There are some original unpainted blanks out there in collections, and all are expensive regardless of the foot engraving (photo from Brian Flynn):

    Marusan reissued the entire kit in the last decade in what I suspect is a reproduction of sorts (note the box of paints and set of brushes):

    There was also an earlier reissue in 2003 by M1GO that has a Bullmark engraving.

    The term, "action figure", still to this day blows my mind. There are so many collectors I know who patently refuse to refer to what they collect as "toys" (let alone "dolls" or any other term). They're "figures", dammit. Such a bizarre, sexist pretense...

    It's almost 2019.

    @Sanjeev - This topic seems to have really struck a nerve with you, and I’m willing to use the term “figures” on this board if you prefer. I have found that the English language being what it is, the term does not translate well when writing to others where English is a second language or they are using translation.

    Sanjeev was agreeing with you I believe @deafmetal.

    Dolls, toys, pieces, action figures, works of art....it’s all the same.

    At the end of the day, they ALL go in my ass!

    My ass is veritable Noah’s ark of Japanese toys! :dam:

    Hey, SOMEBODY’s gotta keep this board a bit edgy and inappropriate.

    Okay, back to vintage toys.....

    LOL...my bad for not communicating clearly! I was trying to convey that I actually find the term, "doll", to be kinda cute and amusing--and even refreshing--given how much of a sausage-fest the toy-collecting hobby typically is. More and more often, I run into collectors who adamantly refuse to say anything but "figures" when referring to toys...as though that validates their hobby in some way. I guess that makes them feel that their toys are more manly or adult or whatever. Pfft.

    Anyway, no nerves struck! Just a dumb digression (though I do take your multilingual point).

    @Sanjeev - I appreciate the clarification. I thought you might have been ranting in my general direction, haha. Any new treasures in your collection lately?

    Old Soft Vinyl ★ ★ Kanegon Marsan - sold for ¥171,500

    Anybody know what version this one is? Amazing condition, and it looks to be on light blue vinyl.

    I feel that somebody got a great deal on the set of Bullmark minis. A Mothra larva by itself sold for over 100k yen just a couple months ago, and the other characters in this set also go pretty high on their own. This set could have only been even better if it also had the original spaceship toy included as well.
