They have as much articulation as a typical Bandai Creation. Not exactly sure what you were expecting- Super articulated figures of this size traditionally go for $50+. They are more expensive 'cos the material is more expensive than the typical BC material.
I am the alienated, the ridiculed, the despised. No need to praise my name. No need to envy my body. I am the shadow under the radiance of heroic spirits. Birthed of the darkness of glorious legend. And so, I hate, I resent. Nourished by the sighs of the people precipitated within the darkness, people that curse the light.

All I'm saying is it's a couple dollars more than I'd like. Knock them on sale and they'll be fine. But if it was a choice between Tokyo Vinyl over a new BC toy, even if they were the same price I'd pick the BC sooner.

I take it you've never actually seen a Tokyo Vinyl? Because theyre MUCH larger then a Galactic Hero. GHs are like 2'' x 2''. TV's are like 6'' x 7''

The TV are NOT 6-7" inches...

They are noticably shorter then all the standard BC figures. They are 5" at best.

Have you seen a TV?

And I didnt say 6-7'', I said 6x7. Meaning height by length. Theyre 5''. I believe the G54 is a little bit bigger.

GH and TVs arent even on the same size scale. Like comparing ARAH GI Joe to a Hot Toys 12''.

Yes. My TRU has at least 6 of both Goji and MG. and they are still too small for $20 if you ask me.

the larger, more realistic looking standard BC are cheaper!

Blame the cost of oil.

You are missing the point if you expect the stylized SD figures to be more realistic than your BC in order to be more expenve, The Tokyo Vinyls are much more professional looking than most of the generally cruddy BC sculpts. And they are made of higher quality material.

Why do they need to use higher-quality material to make the Tokyo Vinyl figures?

Bulkier figures. So they wont sag and hold tighter at the joints.

Okay, I understand I guess. It seems a little useless to me though.

It's NOT useless. If the vinyl isnt upto par for a larger, heavier figure with odd limbs (like the arms) and standing at an odd slant without a third leg support, it wont stand up, it will sag.

Also, these are new molds with bigger packaging AND the price of oil. $20 isnt that much when a regular 6'' action figure is $15 now and uses the same body mold (DCUC line)

I'm pretty sure these are on here elsewhere, but does anyone think these 2 (Or four?) figures see the light of day?

HA, I wish... That prototype of KG is nice looking, though. Wish they went with that instead.

BC really should release MKG & Anguirus; they look a lot better than MG, Sokogecki-Goji and SpaceG do.

That Anguirus is far superior to the current mold. I think it would be the Angy to have for a while.

That MKG looks as good as the Japan one, if not better.
The KG prototype looks much better than the one they did.
Is that the first time Bandai's made a '55 Angy in something larger than Gashapon?

Yeah but they haven't "made" it yet.

I collect VERY few Bandai USA Godzilla figures, but that Mecha-King Ghidorah figure looks pretty good, except for the fact that the wings are a bit too thick.
Anguirus looks NICE (looks better than its Japanese counterparts and the horrid BC Final Wars Anguirus), and I wouldn't mind buying that one... if it ever releases that is.

I inquired via e-mail to BC a few years back about the unreleased figures as well as with some suggestions and such. I was answered by a representative who unfortunately couldn't supply any information besides what was available at the time.
