True. But it would be "Jurassic World" merch, as that's the next JP movie, coming in May 2015...

If you're in such a hurry to get the answer, you could just look around for a few reviews.
Just slowly and (especially) carefully pull them out, I believe the best was is to swivel them back and forth as you pull. I don't have Adult Junior yet, but that's what I do when I switch out parts for Gigan and I've had no issue, aside from needing to put in a little force with the stubborn neck pieces.
Alright, I'll try that. Thank you for replying.

I swapped out the hands because I much prefer the open aggressive hands. They are EXTREMELY tight so the arm may pop off. Mine did, and the torso separated at the moment of hand-removal as well. Just pop the bastard back together. One thing that sucks about the sculpt for the open hands is that there isn't as much wrist sculpted as the closed hands, so the open hands pop off easier, inadvertently.

I actually enjoy the closed hands, somewhat, but as the variety of potential poses is one of the draws of these figures, I'd like to explore all options available.

I have one open and one closed hand on my BG.

I think I'm gonna do closed hands when I get mine. '94 looks like he has one open/one closed hand and it doesn't look good to me.

Major availability updates. SHMA is selling quite well this Christmas! Destoroyah, Mothra, and Kiryu (2003) have all been updated. Godzilla (Adult Jr.) is no longer available through BBTS. Amazon is still fulfilling Kiryu (2003) pre-orders!

I see that Adult Junior, G2014, Gigan04, Final Form Dessy, Battra/Mothra Larva Set, & both accessory sets have all gone Yellow Zone. Adult Mothra has joined Adult Battra in the Red Zone. Biollante is still Orange, but for how long?

Times like these, I like to sit back, enjoy a Saint Arnold Winter Stout, light up a Black & Mild if the mood strikes me, & smile... :twisted:

And then your whole collection goes up in flames because you dropped the Black & Mild, still smiling? :lol:
I will explain slowly why you are wrong.

Guys, be careful with Kiryu HA. His top and left head spikes fell off, and then on of the spikes on his main scute fell off. All in 10 minutes.

Sounds like an individual mold defect. I've been carrying around his severed BD head in my pocket for several days as a little tolken. Not even so much as a scuff on the paint; I even went so far as to examin the head's build and durability before I did that. Solid.

Really sorry about your Kiryu, though. Talk to whoever you ordered it from and get an exchange.

It is okay. I already have a refund on the way and have another Kiryu HA that I am gonna buy as soon as the refund comes.

Well, glad to hear it worked out alright. Hope your next Kiryu's alright; it really is a great figure......

I've had no issues at all with Kiryu. He's a wonderful figure!

It's a shame Mothra went up, I found out she was sold out on eKnight when I went to buy her. I missed her by only a day. Oh well, missing Mothra has led me to getting my first X-Plus, so I don't mind. Hopefully Tokyo: SOS or Final Wars Mothra will be released in the future. Mothra's very popular, and selling out within a year is pretty impressive, so I don't doubt Tamashii's confidence in releasing another.

Both are awesome - Ang is an amazing figure and scales well with the 64 SHMA which is why in posting here.

I really wish revoltech would have been able to do more Godzilla stuff.

Originally I was going to pass on the Revoltech Rodan, but the quality of Gyaos and Ang might make me reconsider.
They look great! After seeing a few of the other releases, it almost makes me want to start another line. :huge:


^_^_^
The Anguirus figure is worth getting if you can find him at a reasonable price. The detail is stunning.
