There have been a number of CAST releases that I've wanted to buy over the years, but AFAIK they're all show exclusives. Where can I go to find more about the company and about past releases?

HAF( Hero Action Figure )has released a fully articulated Redman figure in Japan. The full review is up at TokuNation, for those who are interested. The gist is that such a figure has been a long time coming, and is welcome, but that HAF's offering is so subpar - in many ways - that we'd be better off waiting for Tamashii to tackle Redman, than to spend $70+ on a figure that is "so so disappointing". Not MY words, folks...

Tamashii actually teased a S.H.Figuarts Redman a while ago at an event, but newer any news afterwards. I believed the scrapped it because HAF seemingly got the license for an articulated action figure instead...?

PS (Offtpic (Sorry!)): anybody has an idea why the site doesn't let me upload my own avatar (size 100x100px, simple JPG)? I can choose it but when uploading it gives me an error saying it's is a wrong image type.

Remember when I said people should do articulated kaiju kits?

Saw images of this floating around, was wondering what all the buzz was about, aside from Nishikawa's involvement. An articulated kit? Sounds promising!

It's been a long time coming. I was hopeful when Chibimaru stepped into Kaiju kits. Then the EVA crossover kits were probably testing the waters a bit more.

Now a full size kit. VERY hopeful this takes off into a new line eventually going to organic kaiju. Don't say it can't be done, they'll resemble MonsterArts and maybe have a but more leGap akin to MosuGoji or Shin.

VERY on board with this, although I have little experience with model building. Hopefully I can snag myself a Gunpla kit at G-FEST this year to practice with.

I'd even go as far as to say it looks better than my MonsterArts figure, but from what my poor eyes can tell me, that's a render of the model and not a sample so I can't exactly say that with 100% confidence yet.

I am in full support of this, especially if it leads to cheaper options, a wider selection of kaiju, and more structurally sound models of fragile characters like King Ghidorah or Battra.

A soft vinyl figure based off the new Shin statue in Hibiya! Pretty cool.

^ Translated text says the above figure is actually a BANDAI Movie Monster Series release so it could/should probably be moved to the BANDAI thread...? However, it's a nice and very unique BANDAI figure. I'll need to get my claws on it in August!

GOOG translator from above link:
“Movie Monster Series Hibiya Godzilla Square Godzilla Statue" will be sold at 3,800yen on Rotchkei HIBIYA TICKET BOX, Godzilla Store Tokyo, TOHO Cinemas Hibiya ", Godzilla store (Internet mail order) 2,500 yen including tax“

Sure, feel free to reshare in the Bandai thread. (Saw "soft vinyl" mentioned in a Tweet, didn't realize it was MMS.) Pricier than I thought, but it looks good :)

Bagan got showed off @WonFes.

No pictures sign. But it was shown next to that articulated Varan kit from a while back. Hmmm

As a collector of gashpons, mostly the Bandai: High Grade line, I think that we badly need a gashapon-scale Titanosaurus. We also need an updated High Grade Gigan. One that's larger and with a new sculpt. Lastly, I think we need a good High Grade Gabara, and a RPO Mechagodzilla. Maybe an Anime Mechagodzilla and Ghidorah, but those would be pretty hard to sculpt in that scale, so I'm not holding my breath.

The High Grade line is my thing as well! I do expect a set in November for the final anime movie and definitely one for KotM in 2019. I would prefer if they went back to the 6 figure sets instead of the 4 they've been doing, but that era seems to have ended with the 3 Chronicle sets. The anime MechaG would be a nice addition if they make the set for the last anime, and RPO mechaG would make a nice chase figure, but I don't expect any showa era kaiju to make and appearance any time soon.

Yeah, I wish the 6-figure packs would come back. I'm sick of the 3-4 packs we've been getting. Also, for scale's sake, I'm thinking about getting a High Grade Anime Godzilla to represent Filius, but getting a Bandai 6" scale Anime Godzilla to represent Godzilla Earth in terms of sheer size. IDK. What do you think? Go for scale, or just stick with High Grade?
