    Thought I'd throw this up since there are a number of Garamon fans out there.

    New resin kit from Oyama Ryu, L/E 160 pieces at Wonder Fest, although from what I could read there might be 2 online shops that'll also carry whatever is left after the show.

    ¥19,000

    Reeaallly love the end result on this. I could see this in either a underwater diorama or a forest diorama!


    UPDATE dig it, I came across a post on where to finally order this killer kit! Get it here

    YouTube vid from this past Summer Wonder Fest, guess they also had a table with this + other kits. Looks like it's pretty good size and really amazing!

    it's one of the most amazing kaiju sculpts out there! the concept of garamon's breakdown resulting in an overgrowth/overtake of cordyceps is quite intriguing. been following its progress since 2010 via garamania.

    Those kits are insane, I really don't understand how you cast something that intricate in resin, incredible

    I just got this kit! It's bonks!
    All the tiny mushrooms are cast metal.
    Not so much the cleanup, but getting everything in it's proper place is the challenge.
    It's actually painful to move with all it's tiny spikes.

    That's awesome Paul, I am really looking forward to seeing some more pics of these guys. If all those mushroom bubbles are metal, that must be such a pain to set up. Are you planning on painting it yourself, or leaving it the natural kit colour?

    Incredible score, Paul! :shock:
    I’m thrilled for you, and it’s so cool to hear that all the Cordys are metal!
    What a damn kit…
    Very much looking forward to your build-up pics! 8) 8) 8)

    I've never purchased a kit in my life..so sorry if this is an idiotic question... Do you glue this together or does everything snap in place?

    It looks fantastic...like it should be decaying out in some field.

    Styrene kits (hollow-molded lightweight plastic, parts come on sprues- like the old Aurora kits) are often snap-together, with glue optional (but really kinda necesary); only a few companies out there still make these. With resin kits, you do need to glue the parts together. Sometimes, depending on weight/positioning of parts, they need to be pinned, as well: corresponding holes are drilled in the flat surfaces of the joins and a nail or suchlike is glued in one side, inserted/glued in the other upon joining. Also, before assembly, you may have to do a bunch of clean-up before starting to build and paint: scraping away mold seams, touching up (or outright resculpting) imperfections with putty, etc. In this day and age, with many companies using state-of-the-art pressure casting for their kits, castings are coming out much cleaner and generally require much less prep work than in the old days (when it was often a severely daunting task).

    Pure compliment. I actually am totally fascinated by this, having negative skill with model building. Really. Put me near a kit and it will actually come out worse than unassembled. :oops: Oh, the pangs of unfulfilled youthful desires.

    You're better off, man!
    Not only do you need somewhat deeper pockets to really play in that hobby as opposed to this one, you then have to put in anywhere from 6 to 20 hours of work before you have something to display. That's the main reason I pretty much gave it up... too many other things I wanna do with my time!

    Though having said that... I really enjoy peeking in on the GK world periodically... the level of sculpting talent out there is jaw-dropping, as is some of the subject matter!
