    I have to say that's the coolest Rat Bat Cat by far, and one that I would actually consider buying.

    For some reason today I ended up on the m1go site. I kept thinking who is that guy in the upper left hand corner biting the banner? Through research I found out his name is Gorgo. Wow really impressed with this figure, but searching the net has led to nothing for sale. Hard to score? Diggin him/her the most.

    Definitely an awesome sculpt.
    I'd like to add, how hard to find these little guys?

    Yeah the minis are cool too. I kinda want to find a Gorgo to battle it out with Gamerudon. I hear the Gorgo is pretty big as well.

    The mamas and babies were sold together. The babies are a little larger than Bullmark minis, the mamas a little larger than standard Bullmarks.

    I don't know how often Gorgos come up for sale. I think it's one of the best figures ever (see the mook), but I am biased. Keep an eye on eBay, I guess.

    I haven't seen the blue one in a while. There are actually two blue versions: the first was an event exclusive in Japan (this one is usually sold in a poly-bag with twist-tie) and the Super7 exclusive was released later with a very similar colorway. The differences are pretty minute, but the original blue has more of the flesh vinyl showing through the paint. I've seen the Japan version sell a few times, but I have not seen the Super7 version. The dark green set is pretty easy to find.

    I think a flesh base painted mini was sold with both the original blue and Super7 blue (can't remember or find a photo). I don't know if there was a difference between the two.

    So the Japan event exclusive was just the mama, no baby? That's weird.

    I feel like I have seen a bagged Japanese baby, but most of the Japanese mamas have been re-sold individually. The flesh blanks were sold as a set, so it seems unlikely that they wouldn't have painted the baby as well...

    Baby's mama's mama. Ok, I had to get that out of my system.

    SuperFest Gorgo did come with a painted baby, same color scheme. I got it a couple months after the show. It was in its own bag, then inside the larger bag with momma.

    I'm also a big fan of all the Club Daikaiju figures, but RatBat's my favorite.
    Here's the gang:

    Looks good! The last ones were... the GID versions, I think? Has it been that long?

    Just for the sake of record keeping. These were released earlier this year at Monsterpalooza held at the Pasadena Convention Center from April 7-9, 2017. The Reptilicus and Gorilla were a micro run handpainted by Yuji Nishimura. Yuji was also at the show, but if I remember I think Jim had these at his table.

    50 sets of Gorgos were sold out by M1Go at the last Superfest in Japan. 50 more sets will be sold in the US, bagged with header card, no base or magazine. More details soon.
