I liked the Godzilla, until I saw the pic of it facing forward. It looks alright from that front angle that it was always shown in, but from the front or back, it looks like someone stretched it horizontally.

I might still buy Godzilla, just to have something different. But I most likley will hold off on all of them save G54.

Has anyone tried emailing Bandai USA just to find out whatelse they have planned for the Godzilla line or why on their website there is not a single thing about Godzilla on it? You would think it would have a section to itself like Ben Ten and Power Rangers

Except that Godzilla is a much less hot property in the states right now.

Sooooo......when the hell do the 6 inch figures come out? These "Tokyo vinyl" figures are VERY uninteresting to me...

I think I will buy the translucent Burning Godzilla, and paint my old one up like regular Heisei G.

I don't believe there's any new information here, but you can see the full range of figures offered this year.

edit: Wait, this confirms a "Fusion Series" translucent Rainbow Mothra! Did we know this yet? Oddly I'm not seeing the Fusion Series Burning G... is it off the table?

Green? Looks black to me... a bit hard to tell, though, I guess.

So...using the same molds, they use different vinyl for 2012? Nothing new at all. MEHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Same thing Bandai Japan has done with all of their translucent figures. I mean, you could judge them on their own merit instead of dismissing the entire concept of translucent editions of molds outright, but okay.

I won't touch the '68 Goji, but the other ones look pretty appealing to me--especially Mechagodzilla!

Except the translucent Bandai Japan's arent readily available at retail shops across the entire country of Japan.

There couldnt make ONE new mold? ANYTHING new? Like a Titanosaurus, Orga, Showa Rodan?! ANYTHING?! Bandai US is doing the same for the Ben 10 figures. I dont care if Godzilla 68 is translucent. It's still G68. The same with Mothra Leo. Oh Showa MG is a draw IMHO but Im sure the translucents will be shelf/peg warmers. The black G2K with the translucent purple fins is NICE but Im not buying it just because they switched up the vinyl slurry.

That clear blue glittering Rainbow Mothra is a real nicey! But... it's a superb pain in the ass that shipping these figures from the USA to Germany/Europe costs extraordinary ammounts of money EVERYWHERE. It equals the combined items worth... They want over $70 shipping for the April release of the 6 vinyl figures... that's insane! Damn, why's shipping from the states sooo much more expensive compared to japanese overseas shipping like SAL? I'd sooo love to get the US Bandai figures, but that shipping... it kills the deal all the time... X_X

Any possibility to get these shipped cheap from anywhere...? Anyone, possibly...?

Now that I've seen more pictures of the SD G54,I'll say that I have mixed feelings about the figure.
The hands look way too big. But I like how the head looks for some reason.

I'm going to try and find the fusion Showa Gigan,Rainbow Mothra,and Burnng Godzilla when they come out. Those look awesome in my opinion.

I'm definitely going to look for translucent Mothra and Mechagodzilla, and I'm especially excited about Gigan since I missed out on the first release and I love the sparkly blue color.

As for the Tokyo Vinyls, I haven't seen them in my TRU yet - and I've been actively looking - but I'm probably just going to get Mechagodzilla, and then G54 when he comes out. Unless I see the Godzilla and change my mind.

I'll only be going for translucent G '95 and Tokyo Vinyl MechaG. Oh, and clear Gigan. And Rainbow Mothra.

They've left the translucent Buring G out of their promo shots, which is a good indication that it will not be seeing the light of day. My full write up on this line is available here: http://skreeonk.com/2012/03/13/bandai-us-delivers-a-fusion-rainbow-mothra-new-images-of-their-2012-line-its-a-collectors-update/

I'd say the new 'fusion' Leo is a vast improvement, though.

If you look at the product description on the bandai site posted above, Burning Godzilla is still listed in the line up.

I did a quick mock-up of what I wish we were getting. The more I look at that dull translucent grey, the more I don't like it. Hopefully it'll look better in person. And hey, a guy can dream, cant he?

i'm getting that translucent blue gigan. yeah, most of my collection is marmit/original bandai/pilot ace/gigabrain/model kits/etc

but there's a certain smug satisfaction of buying children's godzilla toys for $15 right off the shelf at the toys r us across the street from work instead of importing a $100 and up figure every time.
