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


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


Nope. It looks like the current stock was the stock sitting around for a couple of years. They did some adjustments and put em out. If I remember correctly, they're going to do a second printing of the same figures. No new monsters currently planned.
Your misconceptions and fantasies along with your misguided sense of entitlement don't dictate my actions.

So we won't get reissues of stuff like Destroyah or Rodan?

The trailer was so good in fact, nearly everyone rose from their seats as soon as it was over and just left!

Talk about a reaction.

Of course not, that would be a smart business decision.

Not from Bandai America we won't. Bandai Japan is where it's at, for vinyls...

Yea, that'd be business as usual for Bandai America. One could very convincingly argue that Bandai America was created by Bandai Japan simply to make America look absolutely clueless when it comes to Godzilla in order to reinforce to collectors that Bandai Japan are the only logical option for vinyl figures made by a competent company and to hopefully give justification for eventually inflating the prices of them once all remaining hope for Bandai America even pretending to have a clue is effectively obliterated.

We've got a whole Bandai conspiracy here.
