This topic went to the second page. I don't know if people were aware if I was still updating during all this time. I am not allow to double post and have to edit a prior post to keep adding which keeps the old date of the post. I only need 1 person to reply every once in awhile in order for me to start a new post. Now that I know people are viewing and someone posted I can continue. Thanks everyone!

============================================================================================================================

I mention some exclusives in the prior post for the Ultra Q 45th Anniversary Gallery Event at Parco Deptment Store Logos Gallery being held from August 24 to September 7. Here is a picture of one of the display cases taken by Shigenobu Ohashi and was uploaded on his Buta no Hana blog dated August 26, 2011. A few of Ohashi-san kaiju figures are also on display at this event.





Some more limited edition exclusives that were made available for sale at the Parco Logos Gallery Event from Bullmark.



=================================================================================================================================

CCP

For Spectreman fans CCP is collabrating with Medicom to release 2 figures thru Medicom Project 1/6 Store to celebrate Spectremans 40th Anniversary. Medicom will be accepting international orders. If you are interested in ordering go here: http://www.bearbrick.com/spman0824/

I really like the Orga polystone resin statue that you posted KnM. It looks so realistic and exactly like the suit.

^Having recently gotten the Ultra Q series, that last update certainly was interesting to me. Thanks Kaiju, and now we know; I honestly hadn't thought about the no-double posts, I was just watching your updates.

I wonder why companies keep on producing convention or store-exclusive toys? Do they actually earn from them?

If they sell out of an entire print run, even if a small run, then any company would consider that a profit.

Target Earths Robot Kong design is losely based on 2 sources which was the 60's King Kong anime and a Robot Kong and King Kong anatomy manga illustration. Mechani Kong was also based loosely on the Robot Kong from the 60s King Kong anime.



Update: Target Earth has extended it's preorder until September 7th. Target Earth has also renamed the character from Robot Kong to Robot Gorilla. An additional "mad scientist" mini vinyl figure will come with Robot Gorilla.

A 30 cm Gamera! That's awesome!
Also, I wonder why companies still produce Gamera Figures? (not that I'm complaining, though)
Does it mean Gamera is still a popular/profitable character in Japan?

I'm loving the Revoltech Legion! That's getting pre-ordered as soon as possible...My wallet hates me so much right now. Also, will the Hazawa Gumi be available in other stores/sites, or is it only an exclusive to the Festival? (and of course Ebay.)

I've only just arrived here at these forums and the poll is closed, but I'm just going to add in that you're definitely not wasting your time. It's awesome seeing all that's new and upcoming out there. So, thank you for making this thread and keeping us up to date!

Awesome Legion.

CCP Gamera looks amazing, too. Is it more of a statue or a figure? My girlfriend is crazy about large scale Gameras, so I might end up in the market for one of these.

That version of Hazawa Gumi will be introduce at the upcoming Super Festival toy show. Like always Hazawa Gumi will make them available for sale after the show usually directly from them (they do not sell to international customers). Sometime clawmarktoys get some of the Hazawa Gumi for sale. The price I gave are original cost. A resell from clawmarktoys will cost you more around $100. And thanks I am glad you are enjoying this topic section.

If you wait about 6-12 months most likey Hobby Link Japan will offer them 25-33% off sometimes as high 50%, like they have on all of the Revoltechs.

More of figure statue. There is probably very little articulation. I have the smaller one next to it. And the arms and tail have very little articulation.

Seeing Legion's feet really ruins his look for me. If I were to grab this I'd have them hidden by something.
Currently living in Taiwan (month 9).
If anyone is considering teaching English abroad as a good way to travel. I recommend you do it now and that you consider Taiwan. So far, I think it has the best of Southeast Asia.
