Iwakura Bullmark Legend

Postby terrypierson » Tue Jul 17, 2012 12:00 pm

What's the deal with these guys? I was unfamiliar with it until having just coming across them. Thinking about picking a few up - I almost exclusively have "realistic" figures, have been wanting to dip in to "stylized", and these actually seem affordable to me.

What's the consensus on them?

Despite my disinterest in most stylized figures, the Iwakura Bullmark Legends mini figures are just neat and fun to collect, especially at the price they're at.
So far I have Godzilla, Baragon, Gorosaurus, Megalon, and King Ghidorah. I still want to snag Jet Jaguar, Varan, MechaGodzilla, and Gigan eventually.

Man that Minya is painful to look at.

I've been debating between getting this Goro or a gashapon one. How big is this Goro?

Hmm... I'mma hafta look into Goro some more. The Bandai doesn't look too good, to me, and this one looks stylized but believable enough for me.

I have all twenty sculpts in the series - I purchased the two boxed sets (vol. 1 and 2). They're pretty neat! Of course, they just made me go and purchase the full sized re-releases of these figures, but hey! I love it.

I have pictures of the entire series, if anyone is interested.

There are color variants of about a 4th of the figures, Megalon and Hedorah receiving the most notable. I've considered getting each variant of these little guys - they're so much fun to collect!

I want the Peach Megalon you have, my friend! That and the Pink Hedorah. There's also a rather unique green Ghidorah, and a Green Gigan as well, if I am not mistaken.

All of those pictures are from when I bought these a year ago. I need to regroup them for some better photos!

I swear to Bob, the only thing that hates you guys MORE than me is my wallet ;)

^This statement is as serious as a clown

I like that Gezora a WHOLE lot, more than I probably should! Could I see it next to a 6" figure, pretty please?

:huge: Here you are. Some are 6", some are 8" scale, so I hope this helps.

I figured I'd snap some pics of these little guys next to their full scale counterparts as well:

Wow, yes! :D I really want one now. There's a Gezora on eBay right now, a bit much for me to be spending on it at this moment, but if it is there come September, it'll be mine.

Thanks for the pics!

Definitely do! Just be careful... you'll catch the stylized bug reeeeal fast. And from there, it all gets hazy 8-)

Good advice, UnCanny. I think I've already been infected a little. :P

Thanks again to both you and Jomei for the awesome pictures.

I've already got Godzilla, MechaGodzilla, and Ghidorah (pics in "What toy..?" thread).

And I just finished this stop motion using the Godzilla and Ghidorah

Couldn't resist picking up Gorosaurus. He's awesome, my love for the line grows. Definitely going to have to get Megalon.

Gorosaurus wanted a video :mudkip:

I loved buying these as a cheap alternative to the larger vinyls but they seem to be getting scarce and more expensive, save the Yog monsters. I'm in the midst of replacing my Gorosaurus, who was damaged. Anywhere good to buy these?
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.
I'll always miss Vega.
