I would have PM'd that but I noticed I was at 49 posts, so this should unlock IMG for me :angel:

Side note: you only need to enter one dimension for pictures with the pic tag, like so:

Code: Select all

No, and if I didn't value my eyesight so much, I'd bleach my eyes so I never had to see that poop again.

Thanks for the photos KlenSeven! Great stuff.

Just curious, but does anyone here own and have photos of the Marmit Iron Joe Gigan?

And now it's been a week, so it's time to nominate someone for the next Monster spotlight....TeddyBaragon, the floor is yours :g2k:

Found some good Gigan reviews on youtube by Samson West. In both of these reviews, he compares the figures to the elusive Marmit Kit/Iron Joe Gigan, so you can see several shots of that figure as well:

Love the Black Gallery MH Gigan. Image Damn, I wish Marmit still made new MH sculpts. With the recent news that Gigabrain will be producing a new Desu-Goji sculpt, perhaps there is hope that Marmit will be able to get back into the game at some point...

With the Gigantic Solvi Life figure arriving, I brought all my cyborgs together for a nice, evil family shoot.
Pictured: the Minimate, the Bandai Creation Pack of Destruction mini-figure, the standard(?) Trendmasters, the six-inch Bandai Creation (normal), and the Solvi towering over them all.

(here's another photo with their millennial relative)
