I figured instead of discussing this in the Future Toy Releases Thread I figured it should have it's own thread. I'm thinking about buying most of the kaiju and of course Ginga.

This line is very appealing because the small size and (relatively) simple designs allow the line to be inexpensive and to contain a large number of figures. I can easily see this line expanding greatly in the years ahead, as it already contains some relatively obscure characters.

I'd actually like to see Bandai try a similar Godzilla line, as it might be a way to actually see some obscure Godzilla characters get made.

I'd love to see that happen too! My only gripe with the line so far is that from what the pictures look like, none of the figures have movable legs like the figures in the 6' line.

I really would love for monsters that desperately need updates to get new figs in this line. Skydon, Gamakujira, and Kingsaurus spring to mind. Glad someone made a thread for this line. One thing that really has me excited: Golza is a new sculpt!! Or a scaled up 4 incher. Either way, it's a vast improvement over the first figure.

I can't wait to get them all and what surprises the future may hold! However, it'll be a pain in the butt to obtain all the eventual limited exclusives, which this line will most likely be spoiled with...

I'm glad to know some more obscure monsters are getting figures.

Now if only they were to make Hanuman and Dustpan...

where can you get these besides Ebay?

^ in almost every internationally shipping japanese collector/toy webshop.

@Legion: knowing the damn completist that I am, I will have to get all the exclusives... :freak:

EDIT: There's already the limited Dr. Egg figure and a limited "burning" Taro will be released as a magazine exclusive in August as far as I know.

I wonder if this line's Tiga will be in good scale with Bandai's Gatanozoa.

I see Gavadon B! HE WILL BE MINE.

Is that Lagoras, top-center?

Bandai's site has nice pics of the first wave, showing the detail in some of these.

Doesn't look like they lost too much detail, luckily.

Yes, some of the detailing on those is impressive, all things considered.

They look almost identical to the 6 inch figures! I hope these don't go out of stock too fast.
