Yogs would be cool. I would hope that they would do them in a 18 or so cm size and do a 3 pack. It would save me money and make sense because the yogs aren't as big as Godzilla or Gamera Kaiju just judging by the film so they should be a smaller size.

^to masonwerx : I don't mean to sound trivial, but if they were to make the Yog trio in the 25cm scale they would be at around 18cm. In the showa series Godzilla was at about 50 meters,Gezora was at about 30. So I think your wish would come true. Does anyone have the bandai museum Yog figures? I got all tree and they look pretty damn good.Kamebas neck actually extends in & out pretty cool. Some of the best bandai IMO.

The Bandai Museum Yogs are GREAT toys. I wish Bandai Museum continued that line. I still love the '62 Godzilla. But then the X-Plus '62 came out and blew it away,

Yeah, that's what I was saying. (I said 18 cm "size") They should be around 17-18 cm to fit with the scale of the 25 cm scale series. I have a feeling though that if X-plus does make those characters they won't be smaller. I'm guessing that they will overlook that for some reason.

Also I don't have the Bandai Museum yogs, but I do have the marmit yog kits. Kamebas' neck extends in and out on the marmit as well. I wish that you could take pics of the Bandai Museum yogs. There are no pictures of them that I can find on the internet. They must be super rare.

Yeah, bandai needs to stop discontinuing their best lines. Bandai Museum got discontinued and then apparently years later the Soul of Soft vinyl line got discontinued. I guess that they just weren't selling well enough.

I'll always regret selling that Yog Set. But times were tough and The Real Estate Market fell apart. A really bad time for me. I sold 90% of my collection over the course of about 2 years.

Cool. I finally get to see the bandai museum yogs. I was beginning to think that they didn't exist

Check out my Marmit Yogs:

Man that Ganami is kinda camouflaged in front of that Rodan. I'm really liking the color choice of that Kameba. Did you paint it or did it come from marmit like that?

I wish I could say I was surprised.

Best watch your step, Redzillaking. You're on my turf now, bro. Gang War!


@ Kaiju King --- Its my paint job. I still haven't finished the claws. Most of my models, I haven't finished the claws. I need to get an airbrush and then strip the paint off their claws and do the claws with an airbrush. BTW, do you know of a good way to strip paint? without damaging the vinyl? is there a specific paint remover for that kind of thing?

Also, here is the prepainted version of the same Kameba, with his neck all the way in.



See how the claws look airbrushed? That is what I want to do for my models that have unfinished claws.

If your paint is acrylic (which I highly recommend) on a vinyl kit, I've used mineral spirits. I think its a little less harsh than lacquer thinner of goof off. But vinyl pretty resilient. Just brush it on a couple times and you'll start seeing paint come off. If you used enamel (God forbid) on vinyl you'll put your stripper on,remove it with a cloth.of course wiping away from the foot. Claws are important in making a kaiju look good. Question! What's that creature in a striking pose in front of Kameba?

i picked up the kamebas recently, i love it especially when you can move his neck all the way out or not. My concern is the ganime where i notice the antennae can break off quite easily and recently i saw a gezora where one of the back tentacles broke off.

Ok, I'll find some of the mineral spirits at hobby lobby. And yeah, I use acrylics.

The little figure striking the pose is Barugon from the Konami SF Gamera collection Vol.2. I have volume 1 as well minus the flying Gamera. They are stylized blind-box toys. I try to stay away from collecting gashapons or mini toys, but I've made an exception for a few really stand out toys.

There are just so damned many of them and they end up sandwiched between all of my bigger figures. It isn't that i don't like them. i've just chosen to sell most of the ones that I had and stop collecting more. The Konami Gamera SFX collection was just too cool though, I had to keep them. They look awesome. I actually forgot to include Gyaos in the picture. There is also a space Gyaos chase figure, but it is just a repaint of the other Gyaos. I don't have that one.

To me Guiron is the coolest one. If there were a revival of the classic Gamera villains it would be a cool design for the monster.

To masonwerx : Thanks for answering my question. I hear ya. There are a bunch of them. I had to stick it out with the HG series. I have them all & there all in display cases on the wall. I was running into the same problem as u when they were getting mingled in amongst the lager ones. That Gamera series is cool tho.


To grobot : WELL!.......WELL! What did your wife get you? You said she said it was rare. Is it something you can tell or post LOL. If so,do show & tell.

KKing do you have a picture of the display cases with the high grades in them?
Years back I bought a couple wall mount shot glass display cases and used them to display Star Wars figures. I had always thought they would possibly work for gashpons.

To Gcrusher: I don't have any pics of them but I'll take some tonight and try to get some posted tomorrow. Dude,they would be so killer for star wars figs. The first one I bought was made for 1/24 scale diecast NASCAR cars.but I stopped collecting them and as I had amassed so many HG Godzilla figures,as I mentioned above,that it was perfect for them. I easily filled the first one so I had 6 more built to the same specs so they look sharp all lined up along the wall,+ one more made like it but a couple inches deeper. All have mirrored backs. I'll try to post them tomorrow.
