Dang, that blue variant is absolutely gorgeous. I've never seen that one before. I've got the orange and green Parababy:

And here's another Gigabrain for good measure, since you can't have too much of him:

I'm a bit surprised that more photos of the X-plus KG figure haven't been posted yet...

There's a reason for that-
It's twice as expensive as a Gigabrain and like 70% of them arrive broken.

Good thing I'm reckless!

As great as this monster looks, it really should have been packaged better, glued better, and made sturdier.
That's a lot of money to be worried about it arriving broken!
But I suppose if you have a gambling problem he's right up your alley.

I hope Bluefin can fix this figure's issues so more people can enjoy it as much as I do!

I regret not getting the first glow Gigabrain Ghidorah. The original gold is also top tier, but boy do I love that glowie.

I like the meteorite extra included, that's a really nice touch. I also like the meteorite extra for the Marmit parababy as well.

Thanks for posting the Xplus photos TeddyBaragon. I was just curious to see more photos of it (on the Scifi/Club Tokyo board, no one has posted any pics of it in the KG spotlight thread over there). I know KlenSeven has a really nice photo of it with all of the DAM kaiju Xplus figures.

It looks good, but for $300-$400, the QC issues scared me off, and I think the GiganBrain just *nailed* showa KG so well. (By the way, welcome to the boards KlenSeven!).

I wish they would released the "closed mouth" variation with the gold paint scheme.



Damn, your Showa KG collection is wicked. Thanks for posting Kaiju no Mura

I would love to see how the Bronze Gigabrain KG looks out of the box...er...bag :lol:

The Marusan figure is huge! Any more pictures of that one?

Sure, I'd be happy to do the next one. I'll be out of town on a business trip, but will get back Sunday, so I'll start a new one then.

In the meantime, keep posting folks! :g64: :gigan: :godzilla:

Better late than never. I don't have much.

Carlton ornament, HG Gashapon, and the Great Showdown candy toy. I need a full vinyl already.

Showa Ghidorah is my favorite Ghidorah, so I wish there were more affordable products out there.
