It’s weird from the side, but hey it at least saves shelf space.

I wish if nothing else, Bandai Creation would release the Japanese molds here in America for the 6 inch vinyl figure line. I don't have any of the Japanese Bandai figures, so they would all be "new" for me.

As I said before, not happening. They are not intended for the US market, and the only way to get them is at a comic shop, Amazon, or from a Japanese retailer. If you're waiting to see them at Wal-Mart, Target, or some other US retailer, you're wasting your time...

The only good ones I could recall are King Caesar, Final Wars Goji (Who I wish I grabbed at the time), Rainbow Mothra and both Gigans.

I'm not. I don't buy the re-issued BC crap. I buy my vinyls from a Japanese e-tailer( HLJ, Hobby Search, etc. )and any of you can do the same...

If you limit yourself to what's on a store shelf, you can miss out on a lot...

Trust me, I am not holding my breath. Although what about the Japanese Bandai figures/molds make them forbidden from Bandai Creation ever being allowed to distribute them (say, if one day someone who actually gives a damn about the Godzilla line starts working there)? Bandai Japan started releasing some Bandai Creation figures, so why is the opposite utterly impossible?

This is true. But with more of these figures coming stateside and comic shops some wont miss out on a lot.

$300 for Anime Godzilla? That's about double what I expected. Gonna be a hard pass at that price. I already have the Chibi figures from last time. Are the 3.5" figures online only as well or are those showing up at Walmart as well?

I don't think they're online only. That might just be the big Godzilla.
