At G-fest a representative said that Varan is one kaiju they'd love to do a figure for so fingers crossed.


Quick question, how big are these premium figures? If they do a Varan, I'd want him in scale with my dozens of other 6 inch vinyls

Like 7 inches I guess. They're bigger then the 6 inch but smaller then the 8 inch


Damn it

That'd be awesome. I'd already wished farewell to the line after the 3 Frankensteins and assumed it was shelved early. Nice they're still moving forward after a full year of nothing.

Has it really been a year since Frankenstein was released?? TBH I haven’t paid much attention.

Hmmm...on the topic of making your own.

IIRC there might be a 3D model someone made for use in 3D printing. Might want to ask around.

Otherwise, you can try using Saran Wrap and Water Wings ;)


Wonder when we'll get the pics for MMS Ghidorah. IIRC he's on the low side of the yen which has me worried. Hopefully he get's the Movie Monster Master Series release.

He’s probably gonna be Tiny AF. Hey. There’s always the chance he scales with the 3.5” AniGoji tho.

I am patiently waiting for the release of the MMS Gigan reissue. Mostly because I wanna Custom the poop out of it. Also. Recently purchased a MMS Fire Rodan for $18 shipped on eBay. Seems like a good deal seeing how much that figure goes for nowadays. It’s a bit worn,doesn’t have a tag and the paint looks to have rubbed off on the chest spikes, but I think it’s a fair price. However I won’t know till it arrives in the coming weeks. Can’t wait to see people’s reactions when I cut it up.

I haven't seen it for preorder yet anywhere else but Amok and BBTS are pricey and Bandai-Online doesn't package their figures very well although they are cheaper than most. They shipped me a broken frankie and it took like 2 months with PayPal involved to get a refund.

I just pre-ordered Premium Bandai Baragon.

I am willing to take the chance that it will arrive okay. I was lucky with my monster Frankenstein with them. I opted for Registered AirMail Shipping at $19.70. Ouch!!! I used paypal. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Still not available from ebay yet. That might be a lot cheaper, but I'm too impatient to wait.

Kurama Toyshop has it for $69.90

Kurama Toyshop is the place that sent me a broken frankie because they didnt package him correctly. It took me 2 months of fighting with them to get a refund. They told me the shipping was my fault. I would never ever buy from them again even if I had to pay double.

It would be great if we could get imports of Godzilla figures. With the Neca Line and Bandai line, Godzilla could have a really nice shelf prescence at retailers. Also means we don’t have to pay import fees or rely on Bandai Creation’s line for a quick Godzilla fix!
