Because 85% of the line is made up of Web Exclusives.

So I preordered G89 at awesome collector. I got an email confirmation from that payment website regarding the preorder “payment plan” but I don’t see any actual order confirmation email from awesome collector. Is that typical?

I like how it specifically says "Godzilla From Godzilla vs Kong"

Reminds me of the event exclusive box, but it's strange seeing anything other than "(monster)(year)". How did these images come up a month before the Japan release?

Just in case people thought it was Godzilla from Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

But seriously...i’m starting to warm up to this figure. I might actually just get this and forego the 2019 Goji. I’ll have no problem if there wasn’t a “normal” repaint of this

Well this is cool. I was trying (and failing) to find contact info on the AC site so I clicked on create an account and went through the process. Once I was all signed in it showed me not just my current order for G’89 but also my previous orders from years past. I guess it’s because I use the same email addy, but I never created an account on his site before today (even though I thought that’s what was happening when I signed up for the “payment plan” when preordering the other day).

Anyway, cool to see confirmation of my preorder plus my old order history.

That Facebook page linked above has some neat stuff on it, like this positively kickass custom Biollante Rose by HDS Studios -

Little too big, but damn if it doesn't look beautiful! The closest we'll ever get to a real one, regrettably.

Are there any sort of rules regarding buying/selling on these threads? AFAIK there aren't, but I just wanted to be sure before asking around about purchasing from other users. Has safe trading/selling happened much on TK before?

Buying and selling publicly on the forums are prohibited for a variety of reasons. However, the site is still good for networking should people be doing that elsewhere privately. Don't solicit publicly on the forums though.

Also, that Rose Biollante is cool. I realized that Rose Biollante recently has gotten a lot of push. It used to only be the Beast form.

It's crazy how this figure is still one of the best in the line.

I'm not even a fan of the suit, but I have to agree. This (and the rebirth version) was the single best, most-error-free SHMA to ever come out IMO.

Has anyone had problems with their Mothra wings? I noticed that one of the joints was cracked while posing it today, specifically looking like the sculpt of the wing and body rubbed together and pulled the wing joint apart. Would post pictures if I had the ability.

Biollante, Moguera, Dirty Godzilla and others as well, never heard a complaint of paint nor of breakage.

100% agree. And I'm totally not biased because this was my first SHMA either.

It's one of the best Godzilla 1995 figures overall, too. The burning patches were done very well.

I've yet to see a head sculpt that rivals it tbh, maybe X-Plus.

Some X-Plus don't capture the suits face that well or proportions.
