The local Toys-R-Us here is loaded with these. (NO Gigans, though...WTH?!?) The 'stylized' ones are neat, as well, though not really my thing. (They had TONS of the vinyl ones when I went yesterday....)
I'm not one to complain, but I wonder why they seem to shy away from releasing Megalon in the states? Ah well... Without these Bandai Cration re-releases, I dont think that many U.S. kids would be exposed to Godzilla, so I see their release as a definite good thing.
We saw a tiny boy running around with a clear Godzilla, making growling noises and smashing him into the peg-hook figures....take THAT "Bukagans"!! I wanted to say to the kid: "LOOK, Billy! Its a retarded-looking little ball that TRANSFORMS into a slightly LESS retarded-looking ball - CRUSH them, Godzilla!!"
Poor, poor selection for kiddies these days....coming from an era of vinyls, giant robos, Micronauts, Megos, Star Wars, He-Man, Thundercats, etc., its very SAD for me to see the isles now stuffed (on their way to the clearance bins, ughhh) with the brain-dead kiddie anime toys-of-the-week. Seriously, can you even COUNT the foolish amount of "catch-em-all"-themed lines out these days with Japanese names?? ...Its almost like thats ALL that is available to kids....s-a-d. Bakublahblah, Redkiwhocares, Beylookretarditsaspinningtop, etc..etc... Most of these 'lines' look like the crap figurines that we'd get in gumball machines as a kid, and be bored with in ten minutes...
