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.
EMS Master Race!

SAL I heard was dead...but there was a posting a few days ago that they finally opened up Air Small Packet for the USA recently. Dunno if it can qualify but its an option that doesn't light your wallet on fire..

Damn he looks good with those colors. I have the original slightly larger release of that sculpt. Such a great figure. If I'm not mistaken this version is the same as the 2016 repaint, which in itself was a repaint of the downsized Memorial Box figure? I'm curious to know the actual size difference.

^ Check the last page my dudes! :P Would love to get it myself but $30 before shipping is just a little tough to swallow to me for a weird repaint, as undeniably neat as it is.

Here's something that I don't believe has been posted yet - "Godzilla Awaji Island Landing ver", which is of course a mini replica of the new theme park ride. It's going to be the closest most of us here will ever get to experiencing the real deal. :lol: :lol:

Is that slide replica made by BANDAI, too? It's nowhere stated on the store site.

Again a single Jet Jaguar and still NO Megalon to pair it with...?! The same sh*t like in 2007 all over again, when the original MMS JJ was released and the MMS standard retail releases ENDED after it, until G 2014 revived the line. Why wouldn't they just put a few resources into a Megalon sculpt...

Good.

Also, Im considering getting those medical jet jaguar and firefighter jet jaguar figures. Is 140 a fair price?

Amazon Japan. I'm just asking because I have no clue what is fair with these figures. I haven't recently been to any toy shops (understandably) so who knows.

I would hold off just for a little bit. $140 wouldn't sit right with me, so I'll do a little digging and let you know if I find anything better.

Edit: On second thought go ahead and get them. From what little listings there are the $140 range is what one of them usually goes for (you're paying that price but for both of them together right?). I was thinking of the listings on Mandarake for 5000 yen each, but they're still out of stock and have been for a while.

$140 a piece? Or both? I would totally have to get them for $140 for both. I unfortunately never picked them up sadly.

I think LSD found them both for $140, while the usual going rate is that price for just one of them. If that's the case LSD, go ahead and get them.

I'd like it but I doubt that'd happen, if they were gonna put out a line for this series, there's no doubt they'd do Godzilla first, right? Not a relatively minor foe.
