That's far from the '64 Godzilla.

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

I like the 'Invader X'. Kinda reminds me of the guys from "Invasion of the Saucer Men". Where would one acquire these?

I'd ask Mike from the Club Tokyo and SKREEONK! marketplaces if he could order one. Grumble Toys sometimes stocks SKULL HEAD BUTT, however they haven't stocked any in the alien invaders series. I suppose you could request that they begin. Good luck!

Skull Head Butt releases for the Kong body species and Mutant body species have so far only been limited exclusives only available at toy shows like Super Fest, Wonder Fest, Design Fest and Dept H events. Retail prices for these events have been around 8,000 yen to 10,000 yen. The demand for these figures have pushed after market prices to $180 and as high as $250.

Chris has offered limited pre-order sales on SHB Mutant and Kong series. Because of the limited runs from events of these figures the sales are only offer within a small window of opportunity of several hours from them as secret sales.

I'd definitely buy the Godzilla and King Kong pictured above. Not so interested in the KKE set, but I admit, Mechani-Kong looks good.

The KKE sets both look very cool and unique. The KKvsG set, on the other hand, looks rather lackluster and an easy pass.....

How great, limited edition or not, two sets each is pretty pointless.
What about a limited edition of zero, now that would be "limited".

Like I said, super-articulate 'em & you've got SHMA!

Damn about how limited these sets are. I would've happily picked up a set of each.

And I wouldn't want those articulated into SHMs. Yuji Sakai would kick those sculpts' asses.
