I was a bit on the fence about Gigan and Radon, but I don't already have vinyls of them, and as I was ordering something else from HLJ, and HobbyLink sells them at the oh-so-reasonable $13 & change apiece, I was like, "Well, why NOT?"... :D

Well, the BC Godzilla line is seemingly dead in the US, but obviously not in Japan. This Movie Monster EX Series clear blue King Ghidorah (2001) came out just a few days ago as an event exclusive limited to 1.000 pieces. The 1st (and also the last) EX Series (BC sculpts) vinyls came out in Japan over 3 and a half years ago and were not exactly loved there. What the...?! :|

I would love if they reissue Godzilla '64 and Brown Anguirus.

I searched on ebay and I haven't seen anyone selling Premium Bandai Baragon. There were multiple sellers for the Premium Bandai Gargantuas and Monster Frankenstein. There doesn't appear to be many options for this one. :shock:

Interesting thought I saw someone post, could Bandai be holding back on showing pics of the toys for planet eater because they are spoilery? I kind of doubt but just some food for thought

This is most likely it. Remember how bandai held off on revealing Kamata and Shinigawa kun before Shin Godzilla released. Same deal here it’s to avoid spoilers.

Raises the question of how they're gonna do Ghidorah. I'm curiously excited to see how they'll pull off a vinyl, but I'm also prepared for disappointment.

Haha, that looks exactly how I pictured it. A lump of gold stuff in the vague shape of Ghidorah.

At least this confirms that he's got somewhat of a body.

Probably looks way better in motion. Anime Ghidorah is always moving and “slithering” around. Bandai seems to have taken the lazy route with posing this guy. But that’s modern Bandai for yah

it looks like a fishing lure.

the Ghidorah vinyls would look better if the heads weren't always pressed together. I've heated up my two Ghidorah vinyls before and separated the necks to give them some space and let them cool down that way, but eventually they always seem to move back together.

Not sure why I thought they'd even attempt to make the necks really long and circling one another like golden Christmas wreathes, but it's still hilarious. I dig it.
