And if we're going to play devil's advocate, wire tails at least LOOK better than a tail with 6-8 separate joints that falls apart right out of the box.
The wire tails suck though. They (surprisingly) have less movement than the SHM jointed tails and they tend to pop through the rubber. Anyways, those tails that fall apart straight out of the box can be reconnected. I'm not really sure why people are complaining.
Anyhow, the G3 figures should be part of SHM. "But whyyyyyyy?" Well I'll tell you why. 1. SHM figures are more durable. I've had my figures knocked over on several occasions. The SHM figures just shifted slightly while my old Baragon's ear was destroyed. One of my Super Gyaos's wings broke while I was posing it. And of course, my Mothra's antenna broke straight out of the box. The only incident of breakage I've had with my SHMs was MG's teeth. And that was my own damned fault for shoving the beam in there.
2. The SHMs look better. They hide the joints a lot better than the Revoltechs and don't have large distracting ball joints all over.
3. They're larger and much heavier. People complain about the Monsterarts being more expensive, yet somehow don't notice thst the SHMs are larger (by at least an inch... mostly more) and about 3x the weight.
4. They all scale well. At least with SHM we know that the monsters will be in approximate scale with each other. Gamera will likely be about 6 inches and Irys will be appropriately sized next to him. Legion was a glaring example of just how little Kaiyodo cares about this.
5. SHMs are really not that much more expensive. BBTS had G2 Gamera for about $55. Godzilla was about 10.00 more. Hell Legion cost about the same as Godzilla. You're paying for higher quality, more durable, sturdier plastic. 6. The SCI FI Revoltech line is likely done with kaiju. You yourself practically laugh at anyone who voices their hope otherwise. I'd rather invest in a line that isn't dead and/or useless to me. No matter how much it pisses people off.
