Tamashii can inquire all they want, but I personally think Toho will look at them and laugh when asked about Bagan and Super Godzilla.

Some great things to come.

*Regarding the poll, they are in fact following it and will be evaluating it through out the year.
-In addition, I'd like to note that duplicate votes will not be counted, per the polls restrictions. If by some way, duplicate votes have made a way through the polls proxy, they will be deleted. At this given moment, all votes are 100% legit. :-)
-Just because a character has a high rank, doesn't mean it will be made. The poll is not meant to find a winner, just what's relevant now.

*Tamashii Nations is aware of the requests for Bagan, and now, Super Godzilla. They are officially inquiring about the characters. :-)

*Bluefin is also following the S.H.MonsterArts figure of 2013 poll found here: http://michalshipman.com/monsterarts/past-releases.html This poll will assist them in knowing which figures were a hit or miss.



Pretty cool stuff! I wouldn't mind a Super Godzilla at all. Only time will tell!

They'll laugh HARDER about SuperGodzilla - they WON'T authorize it. I'll bet on THAT.

Bagan is another story - a design that just didn't get made, but almost... Toho will at least think about it, after Tamashii asks, & who knows?

If G54 doesn't come out this year, I'll be VERY surprised.

Yeah, I can see it now. 2014, the 60th anniversary. Time to release the three most iconic Godzilla characters...

1. Bagan
2. Super Godzilla
3. Godzilla '54

Uh-huh...

Anyway, a Godzilla '62 executed as well as the Yuji Sakai '99 design would be fantastic this year.

I doubt they would make cut by the end of 2014, but at least they're finally being considered.

I myself am meh on Super Godzilla. Frankly, I'm tired of getting Godzilla incarnations/types. It's 9 to 9! Bring on other monsters! With Godzilla 2014 on the way that'll make it 10 to 9!

Yeah. One is a lazy design from an obscure video game and the other is an iconic design that changed the Japanese filmworld forever.

People will vote for the dumbest shit.

All 4 of those are currently higher on the poll than Bagan is.

Bagan shouldnt even be on the poll in the first place, and it honestly shouldnt even be getting any votes anyway. It's currently at #16, putting it above such notable choices as G84, G80, Hedorah, Rodan, MechaG75, Ebirah, Manda, Kumonga, and Minya.

Disgusting.

I really hope Toho allows Tamashii Nations to create Bagan. It would be so sweet for so many reasons. Could you imagine what a Sakai sculpt of it would look like? :-D

It would be pretty cool, and a first. If it happened, I think they'd probably go with the grey suit version, but I'd really like a brown one.

There are much better choices of kaiju that you know were actually in movies that can be made into figures. After bagan whats next? Gigamoth? Ghost Godzilla?

Who else but the most deserving one of all? Deutalios.

I mean, guys, he made numerous appearances in TK toons. I think that speaks for itself on just important this character is. All those other "actual" characters can wait.

As long as Super Godzilla has his beam, I'd buy him.

Godzilla 54 is currently well in the lead, and I can definitely say I'd be interested in purchasing that figure. In addition to being the very first Godzilla design, it has a very "Charles R Knight" look, giving it a charming retro dinosaur feel. It would also be another Showa character, which this line needs more of.

It's a bit funny that we all have such fond memories of Super Godzilla for the SNES, given that the game itself could at times be very frustrating. Even so, Super Godzilla is currently #2, and while I imagine that many would prefer to see other Godzilla designs first, there is no denying that Super Godzilla is rather distinct. I'd be interested in this character as well.

In third place is Titanosaurus, a figure I would wholeheartedly approve of and one I'd certainly purchase. Titanosaurus has been requested for quite some time now, and since Biollante was made after fan feedback I wouldn't be surprised if Titanosaurus follows suit.

As for Bagan (who certainly gets talked about a lot in this thread), there are at least three distinct versions of the character that can claim the title of 'official design'; the suit version, the final concept version, and the Super Godzilla video game version. For a quick look at each, you can check out the awesome sculpts by the very talented AWMGodzilla62:

http://skullbrain.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=43000

If the design is considered, I'm honestly not sure which version Tamashii would go with. The video game version probably has the strongest claim, but I think my favourite is the suit version.

But Bagan still is a pretty long shot, all things considered. If Super Godzilla is made, he should totally need to have his beam though; a massive clear plastic explosion with Godzilla's face at the end = awesome.

Is there a chance that discussion can swing back to discussing new releases, upcoming releases and shit that actually has a chance of getting made? I don't care what anyone says. A form of Godzilla from the very end of one video game that was made over 20 years ago is NOT going to made into a figure, no matter how many people vote for it. For every one person who votes for something like that, I guarantee there are going to be at least 5-6 people who are going to go, "What the f@ck is this shit??"

As it stands you could probably delete the last 8 pages or so and it wouldn't make a difference.

Does Bagan?

I'm pretty sure it's like 20 people.
