They're basically going to look the exact same as they always have so not sure why you're so interested in photos of them.

Not terribly impressed with these guys. Guess cool for people who missed out on pass releases?

I am going to laugh if the Rodan tag features Showa Rodan, however.

Have you guys seen that Purple Translucent Shin Godzilla? It looks pretty awesome. I am just wondering when it is releasing.

nice to see pictures, I've had them pre-ordered since they became available.

Rodan looks better than I expected actually.

tbh. After what they did with tags of the recent Mothra figs, that wouldn't surprise me.

If the toy having the wrong picture on it is an issue in your life, count yourself as beyond lucky

It already has been released. It's a Taiwan Exhibition exclusive and already going for them big bucks.

Really? I think the yellow on him is way too bright, personally. The wings look cool, but his chest and legs looks almost cartoonish to me.

You all know those AREN'T the colors of the reissues right? FW Rodan is the pink tag and Gigan is the Green tag variants from a while back.

Expect the colors to look vaguely similar just unpainted on the back and less paint overall.

This whole unpainted on the back thing really confuses me.

You don't, if ever see them from the back. Why waste materials on painting the back or even painting area's correctly? :P

well, the description of less paint is about what I expected. It's why I said those pics looked better than what I was expecting.

ok, back to expecting what I was expecting. hahaha

If anything Biollante is a good example of what the expect paint wise and Goidzura-URF SpitmuhFire version is what to expect when they want to do "extreme" paint apps.

What you shouldn't expect is Ultra DX Greeza or Ultra Kaiju Shepardon. Though hey, wouldn't put it past them.

Hold on a second, those pictures up there aren't from the new Rodan and Gigan vinyls, they are the old ones (just look closely and you see the old G-09 tag on Gigan, and even closer to see the old tag for Rodan).

Ah Showa Rodan tag would be pretty funny! I'm looking forward to see, whether the new Rodan will have realistic eyes instead of shiny green ones the old release had.

Well, I already own the original (probably far beyond better painted) versions so I can still laugh.
