Same, I really wanted to get that one but not for $300.

It's cool and nice, but it's not that cool and nice.

What's the chances of us getting a KOTM wave down the line?

They could have made made this a monsterart for that price and called it a day.

I have 4 20+ inch figures with articulation and the most expensive one was 150.
The one thing I want to see in life,TOHO buy Gamera.

Was going to pass on the Godzilla Earth, but I caved in and preordered him. I don't know what it is about that design, but I'm drawn to figures of it like I am with Burning Godzilla and Shin. Just can't have enough of him.
Yes, Hatsune is my Waifu...

Well I’m going to have to pass on that G Earth then...

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.

yeah, pretty disappointing. I think it's a great looking figure but not at that price point.

Chris has said Bandai America was up to something, in the past. But we've still yet to see anything.

I think they may have done it, whatever it was.

If we see anything KOTM related, it's likely going to be imports of the existing Bandai figures.

I think Bandai America blew it yet again by not making any new vinyl figures. I can not believe how well these old figures are selling at Walmart. My local store got in a 3rd shipment a week ago and every one of them sold as of today. Then I had the chance to go to another Walmart and this was all that was left.

This might prompt them to make new sculpts

Look like they DIDN'T blow it if the point was to make $

I mean in regards to making Godzilla fans happy and actually pretending enough to give the illusion that they care about and want to expand upon the line. They could have been selling all these old figures to the kiddos that are buying them now PLUS been making money off of us more hardcore fans as well at the same time.

Why spend money to make new sculpts when they can use the ones they already have that are still selling even after years of being sold and resold? Making a bunch of 20-30 year olds happy isn't their priority. Making money is. And if kids don't care and buy them up anyway, why should they change?

I've picked up all the Bandais at Walmart except for the King Caesar. After a whole week of the whole section for Godzilla Bandais being open with nothing in stock, I found only the Godzilla 1968 and Mechagodzilla in stock last night and snagged them. I stopped by today and the section was empty again but rearranged. There's now a section for presumably the 3.5 Shokugan import figures next to one for the 6 inch vinyls. I'll have to check back repeatedly to see if and when they get them. But I really just wish I could find that King Caesar.

I doubt you’ll find him anywhere as I’ve been on a hunt as well and been to at least six different Walmarts. All I find is Mothra, Ghidorah, Godzilla 1954 and 1968.

So then Bandai America is infact not making any KOTM figures?

If they are, they'll have missed the boat by quite a mile.
