Even if that was somehow popular enough to warrant a figure, there isn't anything to go off of to make a figure, unless they made up their own design.
As posted above, he surprisingly does have a whole suit available. I think there already a few figures of Nightmare Gams floating around, too. And as far as only appearing for like 10 seconds... this is Tamashii. That's never deterred them before.

The important thing here is that you can slap a new shell and head on Gamera and boom - good ol' trauma Gamera. Far as I can tell, Nightmare Gamera's body, legs and arms are about the same as regular Gamera's. Can reuse a lot of parts.

I'd say it has a decent change if only for that reason.

Personally, as badass as it looks I don't think its really needed.

And that specific example has been refuted plenty of times. Please stop using it.

Yeah, even though that's supposedly Junior, it's also a better Heisei figure than the original release, has the red beam, and is actually a retooled Burning G. And I'm thankful they made it, because otherwise I wouldn't have a regular Heisei Godzilla in my collection.

I like Nightmare Gamera and could see them making one...but hopefully not before some others from the Gamer Universe.

I know I've read this before and it certainly looks like it, but it's a re-tooled G2 suit. They changed the head and modified some of the shell, but that's about it.

You and me both buddy, but I'd say there's a good chance of it, as the GMK monsters are Millenium.

Guys, I just got home from school and saw that I got my box from AmiAmi. I got my Gamera today! This figure...how should I say...this figure is all kinds of awesome! For those of you still undecided, you should get it. It is one of the very best figures in the line. The only problem I have with it is that it is lighter in color, much lighter than what I remember him to be, but besides that, it's great!

And here I sit, still waiting for my Gamera. SAL shipping is basically torture. Cheap torture.
I will explain slowly why you are wrong.

Since it's a web exclusive, can we assume Bluefin will distribute this? I would imagine they would.

Also, recently took another quick pic of MA Gamera facing off against Godzilla 2000. I love pairing these two together!

If the Spit fire version comes with a fixed head I'm doing a head swap onto the regular figure.

Is there an official confirmation of what is included with the figure?
I would not be surprised in the slightest that Muto Head ends up not being included.
Disappointed yes. Surprised no.

I actually prefer the red poster version to the spit fire version, if only because of the unique color. I did not like the clear plastic feel of the "meltdown" Godzilla, but the poster version of 2014 feels like it's own natural color and I wouldn't mind a red Goji. Shame that you can only getting by spending the ridiculous prices the Japanese charge for DVD's and Blu-rays.

Not sure if I'll pick this one up. I'm kinda happy with my G2014.

On the other hand, it'd be nice to have a breath effect to go with him. It works for more than just him too, it probably wouldn't make a bad breath effect for Showa Godzilla.

Depends on the price and launch date though. If it's around the same as G2014, I might spring for it. Web exclusive's are more expensive though, so who knows how much it'll go for.

Ah, cool. But if there's no MUTO head.... I will riot.
But the image Naruto posted has the MUTO head... But i'm probably making something of nothing, as always.

When will it be released though? Do we have an estimate on how much it will cost?

All I know is that I must have it!

Ehhh. I don't know, it will fix the eyes and Imperial paint issues, but those spikes.. I'll decide when I see a video review and a Gallery.

Takes 3-4 weeks for Sal parcels to get to my door in the UK, possibly longer if the tax man decides he wants a cut.

What facebook page do I post on if I want to lobby for a figure or rather create awareness? Is it just this one and write on the wall, I don't see any other chatter on it from people saying 'oh i wish they would do such and such figure'? https://www.facebook.com/Tamashii.USA


Note: I deleted my facebook years ago and am no longer up to date with it.
