$125 is insane for a toy.

I love you Wats, but you just sound cheap. Even if $125 IS too high, $40 is way too low.

Also, that's why I'm not buying it for $125. There's better deals out there...

This is the guy who said SHM Godzilla was stupid because it could be posed in ways the real Goji couldn't. And said that we were Bandai's bitch. In short Cap... Don't feed the troll.

Nah dude, Im not cheap. I'd willingly dump $125 for something worth it - like some Tiger Sharks figures, or Dinosaucers.

Can someone tell me why we get Shit like this instead of giant monsters? I don't remember anyone saying "Gee, needs more Mothman."

Because I will. Stop arguing. Now.


*sigh* No arguing intended, and like I said, I actually do like Wataru, so no beefs here.

Dinosaucers do rule; why didn't someone write them in on the Bluefin poll?

What a value. If those things were 1/4 their price I'd collect them all. Especially Titanosaurus.

Merely expressing my frustration at there being no giant monster preorders from Marmit for months. I've made my desire to own some Monster Heaven figures pretty apparent, so I'm not sure why you think I wouldn't buy anything in that style... Hope that cleared your confusion up. On top of that it's a goofy ass looking Mothman.

@Legion... Nope.

I have a Mothman figure. It's from MezCo's now-defunct Cryptozoology line. I believe it was $10-12. $100 is a bit much for the Mothman in the pic, but to each their own.

And wataru is definitely trolling. $40 my fanny!!! :eh:

The Carlton Cards 2012 Godzilla ornament is up for presale. It's Godzilla '64 stomping on a mazer tank.

I got that figure. I think theyre worth $30-$50 each now. $100 is a bit too much for that. I understand it's a stylized figure, so I'd saying $55 tops.

And wataru is definitely trolling. $40 my fanny!!! :eh:

That's far from the '64 Godzilla.

And that is very clearly a nineties Maser Tank at that.

There's been a Godzilla ornament every year for the past, what, five-six years?

And dafuq to the rest of your post.

Ah, what a view
You drift about
You're spinning down
You're not coming down
