Varan and Manda's absence in the vinyl line in any way, shape, or form is part of the reason I'll always respect Marmit more.
RedZillaKing wrote:I realize all of that. However, as a collector my respect lies with the more comprehensive line. It makes sense from a business standpoint, sure. Bandai can afford to throw collectors a bone, though. They release the most obscure and unpopular ultra monsters. Even the ones that don't sell.
RedZillaKing wrote:Oh Legion... you're actually claiming that every obscure Ultra Monster sells.
And Ultraman wasn't always more popular than Godzilla. At least not as much as you're suggesting. And certainly not during the entire time Bandai's been making Godzilla figures.

JVM wrote:Legion, would you be able to answer why KC, MKG and certain figures are higher in price than those such as Godzilla and Anguirus, despite similar (although not exact) release histories?
RedZillaKing wrote:I'm sorry- what does that prove about popularity? And I hate to say it but the Ultra monster figures aren't fit to be squeak toys compared to the Godzilla figures being produced at same time. With few exceptions, the 90s Bandai Godzilla figures were Beautiful. Well detailed and very well painted. Compare Golza to Desghidorah. Hell, compare him to Orochi. Gudon to King Kong. Or Gorosaurus.
And which license do you think was more costly?
