That Gyaos is damn ugly, but i'll get i anyway. :lol: Legion looks really great though. Seems to be hit or miss from Bandai theese days.

Legion looks about as good as she can. I dig it. I'm not really a huge fan of the Heisei Gyaos design, especially when it transfers to figures, so meh.

I find Hyper Gyaos to be a better design than the GOTU Gyaos. Longer tail and wyvern wings make the design look more complete.

Heh, I’m the opposite. The Hyper Gyaos looks too generic and “western” for lack of a better word. The Super Gyaos from ‘95 looks like a more vicious and modern interpretation of the very unique classic design from the ‘60’s. Which it is.

Hyper is the definitive Gyaos for me. This just looks too clunky.

I’m probably skipping these. I really want to see the Shin Ultraman and Kong figures. Hopefully we get looks at them soon.

I’m sure we could see a rerelease of Hyper Gyaos if they release an Iris figure. Also any updates or info on when these hit shelves?

With Kong vs. Godzilla getting released in two months, I do wonder if we will soon get reveals for the new bandai figures.

Has there been any word on figures for the movie besides Godzilla and Kong? I'd kill for a MMS Skull Crawler.

It’s already confirmed there will be a new Kong Figure (sweet) and a new Godzilla figure, and I think it’s possible for some other ones. I’ve always wanted a good skull crawler figure; they’re neat.

I imagine. I think then though we’ll get some other monsters. Kong is going to be released soon, while there will probably be a delay on the rest.

I think Gyaos and Legion both look very good by the current standards of the line. I'll be keeping an eye out for these at HLJ; they'll probably have the best prices for these figures, and I DEFINITELY don't want to miss out!

Then joints look like ass.

But I’m here for the MMS figures from the film. Hoping we get a Ultraman from that line.

Crazy how everything dropping in the next month or two is a must have for me.

Shin Ultraman, Neronga and Gabora
Kong
Gyaos and Legion

Speaking of these, ain't it strange that neither of the new MMS toys is listed on both HLJ and Hobby Search yet Jet Jaguar is who will be released in May and isn't even listed on the official Bandai website?
