Pretty much. As annoying as it is, I except the joints to pop out once in a while.
while Space Godzilla and SDCC Godzilla's tails fall off if you happen to look at them the wrong way. I never even bother touching King Ghidorah anymore.

Ditto. Though instead of SDCC it's Burning Godzilla (3rd tail ring) and with Space Godzilla its (2-3rd from the tip of the tail) that fall's off easily. Moving Burning's tail to the right will almost instantly cause it to fall out of its socket. Spacegodzilla seems to be luck based :P

I move and pose Ghidorah's heads weekly but as of such I never touch the wings or tails. Wings for obvious reasons as mine is a first release and the tail keeps pops off if I move it to the right (again not always). Haven't had many problems with the others in the line, minus Godzilla Jr's tiny hands falling off easily.

Good news..I dipped a bit of super glu in the messed up joint and moved the peg around till the glu dried around it and now the leg doesn't seem to pop off. Crisis averted :)

So it's looking like Biollante is a hit, right? No major issues so far?

I've wasted no time and have run into production for a new stop motion. I'm excited to start animated MosuGoji.

Consider yourselves lucky guys, my G64's head, arm, and leg pop off with little effort. I don't really do too much stop motion stuff, so it's not a huge annoyance. But damn! I'd have to say he's my most flawed SHMA.

If you're having really chronic problems with joints, I know of two things that might be able to help; the first is using a hairdryer to heat the socket (gently) so that you can insert the ball joint more fully into the slot. One common problem with this line is that sometimes ball joints are not inserted deeply enough, which can cause them to fall out when moved (this was a problem with the necks of Ghidorah). I have used 'the hairdryer trick' myself many times, and it has fixed the problem in every instance.

Another thing you can try is using nail polish or something similar to make the joint tighter within the slot. I have not done this myself, but I have read that it can improve a figure's articulation when it has become loose.

Aside from an overuse of the word "fantastic", this is actually a very good review; he goes into detail about the articulation, and I appreciate his advice regarding the batteries.

I suspect that there might be many complaints about Biollante's vines; the figure appears to have more points of articulation than any release to date (surprisingly), and with so many ball joints there are many instances where something could come undone. Once again, a hairdryer will be invaluable.

The back articulation is something I had noticed, but I wasn't sure how it was going to work. It's actually a pretty ingenious way to emulate the motion of a suit that was made of flexible materials. It does suggest that Biollante is more of a 'pose it and leave it' figure, but it should work fine for stop motion.

I love Diego Doom. He's always so positive and upbeat, you can tell that he really just loves collecting and showing off his new toys. The way that he repeats himself is sort've just his thing. I'm certain he realizes that he's doing it.

I like him too, I think his whole thing is he's trying to emulate a professional announcer or something, it honestly doesn't bother me, he's perkiness is a hell of a lot better than a half dead lisping mouth breather on the other end of the camera that doesn't know what the skreeonk he's doing, like so many toy reviews that plague youtube :lol:

Hey guys (ROARING STATIC) Today we're going to talk about the new figurefrom S.H. Monsterarts (ROARING STATIC).

Seriously though, it's tough to get everything working properly for a video. I appreciate it when reviewers go the extra mile for high production values, like DeigoDoom.

I feel bad for us talking about him. But I love how in his first SHMA toy review his voice was low but now it's skreeonk high- ahem- HIGH PITCHED. I guess he was very excited. i think he does the review whenever they come to his house (because you're just that skreeonk excited that you're voice is high pitched)

Went to Bluefin/Tamashii's Facebook page & said we need more Showa. Also suggested that we should get some more 'obscure' stuff, like Gabara, Gezora, Frankenstein & the Gargantuas!

But don't be shocked if you don't get most (if not all) of those characters. Gezora and Frankenstein especially are long shots.

I'd play it a little smarter and suggest characters that actually have a better shot, like Megalon, '74 Mechagodzilla or Hedora. If they can turn around actually do those popular characters first, then I'd say it's worth it to ask for stuff that's far more obscure. Either way, even if they do start to get obscure, I can't see Franky ever getting made. I dunno what it is about the character, but almost no one does the Toho Frankenstein. Not even X-Plus has done one, despite how many Baragons they've done.

And spare me the "this is Tamashii, they'll listen to the fans" stuff. It took us almost two years to get the '64 and if we do get another Showa monster, it will probably take a good chunk of a year before that happens. Asking for stuff like Gezora and Frankenstein seems pointless.

Frankenstein is more of a humanoid which sh figurearts can do. If hedorah does get made I'm pretty sure GFW version is coming out first since Gigan FW is already being released.
