I don't know why they're under the "Godzilla vs. Kong" label, but they are vinyls from Godziban from the looks of it. Show seems fairly popular so I guess it makes sense?

I don't know what "Godzilla Chaos" is though; if I were to hazard a guess, I would say some Burning Godzilla repaint, like those old all-orange "Meltdown Godzilla" figures Bandai used to make.

Aw sweet a new meltdown Godzilla? I've always wanted to get that Toy's Dream Project one, but maybe I won't have to.

Also... Godziban vinyls?

oh

oh no

It looks like the full name for these things is "Godzilla vs. Kong Movie Monster Series Godzilla", so it's naming Minilla, Little (Godzilla), Gojirakun, and... Chaos 1995. The only "Chaos" monster I'm aware of is the cut monster from 1995, which was intended to fight Godzilla, Little Godzilla, and Ghost Godzilla, but it doesn't even have concept art. Strange.

Spoiler:
I'm still hoping baby Godzilla/Minilla is in GVK. >:[
but yeah, this is interesting!

Excited/nervous to see the Godzibans and REALLY want to know what Chaos is.
Spoiler:
wouldn't it be nuts if the main villian of GVK was some monster Monarch made called Chaos 1995 and this is how we found out lol

Am I the only who actually looks forward to vinyls of the Gojiban kaiju. I'd totally snap those little guys up.

I'm going to purchase them, crush them into powder, and then snort them.

First saw this on Ebay - "Millennium Godzila Atomic Heat Beam ver." Not sure if there's any other reissues/repaints coming out.

Am I mistaken or are his fins blue? Which is certainly an... interesting choice for Godzilla 2000. And they already made an accurate "Atomic ray" 6" Godzilla 2000 in that Megaguirus set.

Do you guys know where to get the older Bandai Ultraman kaiju figures? The ones that have four points of articulation rather than two?

Speaking of Ultraman figures, there's a lot coming.

Mandarake is your best friend. I've gotten so many tagged older ultra kaiju vinyls from them for dirt cheap, excluding shipping. Their selection for the old and new Ultra Kaiju and Ultra Hero lines is ridiculous.

This is seemingly another Godzilla Store exclusive being sold at the opening event of the new Osaka Store in a few days, as far as I understand.

I can't find any legitimate source for these upcoming Ultraman BANDAI figures. Can you provide an official source?
And Shin Ultraman is gonna be part of the Movie Monster Series (which always was a pure Godzilla (& Gamera) domain)...?! :|

It is produced by Toho so there is a possibility.

^ Sign me up if true, at least assuming it's in the MMS or comparably priced. Also, I'm glad you brought it up, because it reminded me that the recent Gamera vinyl exists. I completely forgot, haven't thought about the thing in months. Gonna have to grab one soon, especially if we're about to get a Legion to go with it. Well, sort of, it's a different movie, but close enough...

Heard it on Facebook, haven't heard any details myself and was wondering if anyone could confirm. Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up.

Dang, I was kind of interested in it. I somehow missed the price there anyway and it already retails for more than I'd be willing to pay. Oh well.

And I looked around for news on a Legion but didn't see anything. I think the Gamera 1995 was just a one-off, 25th anniversary figure. It's a shame because it genuinely looks far and away like the best vinyl figure Bandai's put out in over a decade. But I suppose it's possible that they'll do another 25th anniversary figure for Gamera 2, or just more in general if that Gamera '95 sold well.

I still want a Zedus. :mad:

Dunno what shipping charges are like these days though. You used to be able to get a vinyl or three shipped for maybe $7 or $8 with the trackable version of SAL. But I know COVID wreaked havoc on international shipping options so that may not be the case right now.
