Biollante, she's one of the best looking new vinyls we've gotten in a while. Rodan is fine, but a little plain. MKG is great as well but there's other releases out there so you can wait on him.


Agree with UltramanGoji on Biollante. It is a great Vinyl.

Biollante is a new sculpt, always prioritize those, especially if the last one was like - from the early 90's. A bit on the short side, but a fantastic sculpt, imo out weights that. Then i'd hop on MKG before he goes away and skyrockets in price again.

That’s my next purchase as well unless Anguirus drops within the next month, after that I’ve got my eyes set on Rodan, then Mothra imago, after that I’m not really sure.

Not too impressed with the next MMS wave, wishing we’d get a Battra larva, Titanosaurus, and Showa Hedorah soon instead of FW characters.

Well, considering regular MMS Ghidorahs tend to be smaller than usual and this line is actually of a larger scale compared to MMS, this guy should fit in fine.

The BANDAI websites states it being 24 cm tall. That has to mean to the top of the wings then. Hope that helps.

This is annoying, but by the looks of it, there's a special burning Godzilla Bandai Figure (it's just a recolor really) that is included in part of a big special KOTM promotion that includes a bluray and the SH monster art

I hope they wind up selling it separately.

Man that almost looks like a bootleg... it should be a lot more red instead of orange.

As much as I wanted a 2019 "Burning" Godzilla vinyl I really don't like the looks of this. Looks pretty bad IMO but I will see if will look better once the final product is out but as of right now it can stay an exclusive.

looks very generic and not at all like the movie.

If I ever see it in person, I’ll get a better picture of it. Bear in mind, the page I got that on, had it much smaller, I don’t think it was meant to be posted at that size. It does make you wish for a Burning Godzilla proper though.

Back in April, I wrote:We have an SSSS.GRIDMAN vinyl kaiju coming in at last! Release is scheduled for August. It's a bit pricey for what it is, at $25-30, but at least with CD Japan, you can cut the price down further with rewards points if you have an account.
I say preorder this, and show there's interest for more!


And in response, MandaSaurus wrote:

It certainly is an interesting design. I believe Good Smile Company made that one...


Checking in again to say, yes, actually this is a Good Smile vinyl. :oops: Serves me right for not reading the product info right.
Having said that, the figure is finally out and mine arrived just the other day. I'll post some more thoughts in the "Just Buy" thread.

I also found a Kamata-kun Hyper figure today. I've been checking several of my local Walgreens to see what's in stock; mostly it's just been a couple of ShinGojis and AniGojis each time, but today I lucked out. This fella and BioGoji are the two I wanted most.
I'm not sure this is an $8 toy, but whatever. It's pretty nice for the size. The tail has to be attached, but I just needed a little careful force, no additional heating.

Kinda a weird question, but I'm thinking about going after the Bandai 8 inch GMK Ghidorah. How bad is the wing drooping problem on that thing, for anyone who owns it?

I use to have all the gmk 8" vinyls. They were made from a very soft vinyl and the detail was a little muted. Ghidorah was pretty big so they did flop some. The low crouching pose didnt help. I only kept the bandai hyper hobby glitter gmk Godzilla from the line.

You can stuff foam or wood plates inside the wings. That worked good against drooping on my copy. You should support the wings while in storage, though, to prevent drooping, too.

Baragon's the one I want most from the line. I love that design. How's that figure?

If i remember correctly his ears do fully rotate which was cool. With the extra soft vinyl they always seemed even more kiddie that the mms line and way less than the 90s 8"line.
