Now if only we could get candy toy machines in our local Super markets, that'd be the bees knees

When can we expect this wave to come out, keeping an close eye on that “Mega Godzilla” now.

Some ass jockey decided to not crop dust the crowd, dude let off some straight napalm and cleared a 20 ft radius and didn’t flinch, he just moved up closer. I prayed Sandra wouldn’t catch a whiff, talk about Endgame....just gross.

I am not sure if he was hinting at the end that we may see more 6 inch figures in the near future or not, but I do have my fingers crossed. Even if they did the same thing for the main vinyls that they are doing for the candy toys and just brought over the Bandai Japan figures. I would be thrilled with that, since I don't have any of the Bandai Japan figures.

I might be on board for some of those candy toys, depending on pricing and such. Do we know what stores will be carrying them?

True. But even if we could get gashapon machines to the US, they wouldn't fly at your local mom & pop grocery store...

Well, they’ve already brought over one or two waves of those 3.5 inch hollow vinyl gashapons in the last few years. Personally I only ever saw them in comic shops or places like bbts or entertainmentearth. But it sounds like maybe this new wave (waves?) will be more mainstream.

Many of these hollow vinyl gashapons are releases of pieces from the "Battle Box" series that came out for the Kiryu and Final Wars movies. The rest were new figures produced individually as the Legendary, Shin, and Anime candy toy releases have rolled out. I am expecting all four primary titans to get new figures in this promised wave.

Good luck with that. They're bringing over only 500-1000 of them...

Here is a review for King Ghidorah 2001. Definitely a great improvement over the original 2005 sculpt. Easily one of my favorite BC figures now......

Not happening. MMS is a Bandai Japan line, not meant for the US market. They are readily available Stateside, from various sources( Amazon, Amok Time, etc, )but you'll be paying more than SRP. I prefer to order directly from a Japanese dealer.

Erm... wut...?! Not really an improvement since their original KG'01 from '05 has actually a more detailed, less flat and sharper sculpt, most noticeably in the dull horns on the re-issue(s). I only ever noticed that after selling my original one off and afterwards regretted it a lot for that reason.
