Would likely get one of them 1st, but which in your opinion(s) are the best of them?


Are you looking for a Showa MG or a Kiryu?

Kiryu


Go for the MonsterArts instead of the Chogokin. I own it and it's amazing. Much better articulation, accessories, and it's cheaper (to my knowledge).

The only one I would consider getting would be Mechagodzilla 1975, simply because he is my number one favorite Godzilla villain of all time

I just saw a review of the Chogokin Mechagodzilla 74 chrome and now I don't know if I want that or 75. Wish their was a chrome 75 but I think I'll end up with the 75 version and be done.

Lol I strategically glued mine so that wouldn't happen.

^^ Really like that Showa MG. Hope they bring some of that aesthetic to SHMA when they get around to releasing their own MGI.

It is a shma.

Can you stop quoting images? Please thank

Also - it does bear the "Chogokin" logo. Tamashii MIX may be a cross line.

Added in 1 hour 23 minutes 9 seconds:
Little more research;
At the timing of "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla" (released in 1993), the late Mechagodzilla drawn by Mr. Yoshinori Yoshinori was revived as a super alloy in 2017. Under the cooperation of Mr. Nobushi Nishikawa, a cartoonist who is a staff at the time and a phantom poster version draft designer, realized the will of that time. Well, what is the gimmick hidden in this design ...?!

Chogokin confirmed.

超合金となって復活

Super Alloy - Chogokin.

Doesn't explain why it's under the SHMA special list though. Meh.

It might be a cross line thing like you said. It probably means a mix of both lines and we just interpreted that as a transformation instead

Maybe it means both. Although if mix only means the gimmick then they could have come up with a better name

I've not been this pumped for a Tamashii product in a long time.

If it can transform, all the merrier.
