So, I'm attempting to hunt down that giant Orochi figure that bandai made years ago. Anyone know what a fair price for one is nowadays?

Orochi was sold in a box? I never knew that!

Are the other figures from Yamato Takeru worth it? I found the Fish Tentacle God Dude for 30 bucks (forgot the name but I have the link saved)

EDIT: Kaishin Muba. That's it's name.

Welcome to the right place, I have being trying to hunt all of them down. I am down to Utsuno Ikusagami and Orochi. Some of them were tough to come by and not cheap. Orochi goes for about $200 or higher depending on condition. Good luck!

Would a Kaishin Muba for $30 be considered a good deal?

Yep, it was. It's a nice but huge box in a white style with black and red. Here it is seen in the background (sauce is deviantart):

Finally got MMS Biollante, what a fantastic figure. It's bigger than I thought it would be. It could probably use some more paint but I'm happy with it either way.

Yes, I paid $65 with a tag at G-Fest this year.

Okay. Now I have a new problem.

I found the Kaishin Muba for $25 (with tag), but I also found the Chogokin Toy's Dream Project Gigan for $40 They are from different stores, so if I get both I would have to pay two shipping prices (It adds up to almost $60 just for shipping). Which figure, if I were to get one, sounds like the better deal?

If it's Mandarake, yes you will pay two separate shipping prices. I would say go for the Chogokin Gigan as it's more likely to sell out than the Kaishin Muba.

I'm sorry if this has already been discussed before, but is the newest re-release of Destoroyah a retool/resculpt/modification? The head looks different to me, was wondering I should pick one up. (I've got the pink tag version).

minor retool with different paint, skip it since you have the pink tage.

Actually I think it’s an entirely new Figure. It’s significantly smaller than the old one.

I can vouch for this. I own the newer one, while a friend of mine owns the older pink tag version. The pink tag version has a more detailed sculpt and is a tad bit larger, while the newer one has a more accurate head, but is overall less detailed and a tad bit smaller.

Also, does anyone know what happened to Club Tokyo and why they don't update anymore? I used to love that site.
