I like the original colors better. :|
This is just what I've been waiting for! Thanks for posting this. I absolutely love these new colors - better than the original by far.

So, forgive me if there's only a handful of folks in these forums whose opinion I put on a par with MINE...

Though I'd thought from all of the reviews I read that he'd be a stronger shade of green. Just looks pretty much gray to me. But worth it for the purple spikes!
It's been a little while since I've seen the G2K but are the claws/toe nails painted better on this new version?
Here's a pic. Hope it answers your question.

How much was the shipping?

I like both G2Ks the same.
@MandaSaurus: Yeah, would be nice. Hoping for MUTOs or Showa stuff.

You did! Thanks, man. They are big comic book fans, and I happen to work in comics, so all the better.

If they see that Gamera '99 does as well or better than Gamera '96, then they would probably commit to making Legion or Irys. But my guess is that they would go in this order:

Gamera '99
Hyper Gyaos
Legion
Gamera '95
Super Gyaos
Nightmare Gamera
Irys
Why do so many people put Nightmare Gamera on their lists? The rest make sense, but what justification is there for Nightmare outside of them releasing a G'99 that sells like G'2000?

Nightmare Gamera is absolutely bad@$$, and fans generally gravitate towards bad@$$dom even if it appears in fleeting moments.

I'd personally like a Toto and Zedus from Gamera the Brave. I just watched that again recently, and really, that's just such a sweet movie all around. Really brings out the kid in me.

Don't get me wrong, Nightmare Gamera is badass, but we literally saw nothing but his head for about 7-8 seconds total throughout the entire film. Even if that was somehow popular enough to warrant a figure, there isn't anything to go off of to make a figure, unless they made up their own design.

Certain characters with small but memorable scenes are justifiable to make (Rebirth) but not sure about Nightmare Gamera. Cool yes. Has any figure of him been made so far?

Yeah, doing a Nightmare Gamera isn't a strange idea at all considering how many figures of him already exist...

Strictly speaking, I'd say Nightmare Gamera is more deserving of a figure than a concept G2K and Adult Junior figures. Of course, those both had special circumstances surrounding them, but at least Nightmare had more screentime than them, and an impactful one at that.

I could be mistaken, but wasn't there an entire Nightmare suit produced? I've seen this picture floating around:

I'd buy a Nightmare Gamera simply because it's a pretty sick design and I just like the look of it.

I was literally coming here to post that exact photo. :P I wonder what the people who find G3's design too edgy think of THAT.

Still, I wouldn't expect to ever see an SHMA of that guy unless all the main Heisei Gamera options were exhausted first.

EDIT: Although now that I look a little closer at it, the Nightmare Gamera suits looks like a retooled G'95 suit. Hmm, maybe a Nightmare Gamera isn't all that unrealistic, if that's the case.
