    Far right aka Meteor Dino is suppose to be a homage to Shin Godzilla 3rd form.

    Also Robert, this is just a suggestion but maybe change the title to only Trash Talk Toys? I kind of hesitated on whether to post the new sculpts here or create a new topic since I thought the discussion here was dedicated to Maggore.

    @chimply.kaiju Ah! Perfect! Thank you for the info, Anthony! Now that it’s been said, I can loosely see it! And thank you for pointing out the title thread change. It since has been, and I’m glad there's discussion over these new sculpts! I think these are great!!!

    Thanks for changing the title. Haha, even I wasn't sure what the Dino was based on when I saw it. But the box art packaging and one of the mock up image they created that spoofed a Shin Godzilla flyer made it clear what the homage was.

    Seems super-calculated and the exact antithesis to Naritada-san's Kaiju Princes IMHO... :/

    i agree that it seems super calculated BUT i definitely would pick up a set if the price point isnt crazy. this is a huge step up from Maggore imo. smaller scale and better detailing

    I am blindly unaware of this! Do you have anything you can reference me to, to see?

    @kid_miracleman Oh, wow. Yeah, if these were teased for release before the TTT toys were, I could see it. I don't follow Elegab, so I had no idea. But at the very least I can say perhaps they were more inspired by an artist with longevity. Thank you for the info, dude! I can honestly say the TTT minis are more suited for my personal sensibility, but those Elegab are pretty damn fantastic, too.

    I mean, viewing these toys in a microcosm, they're not bad. Honestly I enjoyed the packaging more than the toys.

    But I can't view them in a microcosm. I have nothing against Garumon, but I've just noticed a trend with a couple of other artists where stylistically their previous toys were a totally different style and then they put out a Garumon tribute toy and BOOM it blows up. This coupled with the Elegab stuff just makes me kinda raise an eyebrow a bit.

    @kid_miracleman Yeah, I totally get what you're sayin'! I just know Jonah is a big fan of vintage toys, and has quite the collection. So it's not lost on me at all why they'd run with the homage paints. I absolutely see where the two main points mixed together throws out a bit of a strange, "this is *too* coincidental" vibe!

    I think this is a valid point but I do like this newest outing by TTT. I much prefer this Garamon tribute to Terrible Whore’s “Fuck Q” (an awful name) which comes complete with a nose I can only assume is sculpted after Michael Jackson’s.

    Personally, the proportions bug me the most beside anything else - sculpting crude toys is easy, getting the proportions right apparently not so much. That "Booska tribute" is just a weird navel on feet... :?

    That Mecha Mole Tank is fantastic. Not really interested in much else but I like that one a lot.

    Yep, I'll admit that seeing a pachi Cicada Man piloting a Transformer M.O.G.U.E.R.A. is surprisingly thrilling.

    Anyone know retail on the pretty?

    The tank is truly amazing. I have been paying much more attnetion to their account since the release. Hopefully we can see overseas sales one day!

    Trash Talk has had an interesting trajectory-
    I couldn't stand Maggore. The Atomic Peace series wasn't really my bag either but I could tell they were swiftly moving in a better direction. I think they knocked it out of the park with Mecha Mole Tank. As Robert said, Jonah is a big vintage fan and a great guy to boot from what I can gather. Looking forward to more vintage-inspired releases from the duo.

    I do like the tank and packaging. Awesome vintage vibe.

    Then again, I am a sucker for sofubi in military vehicles

    Not a fan of military tanks but I like size and how subtle it is.
