I literally have no more money for this stuff.

Too. Many. Figures.

I have waited since the 4th grade for an MMS Megalon. It feels like so long ago... considering it was. This is an absolute must for me, I am so happy!

There was a Megalon figure back in 1993, but yeah it's been a looooong time.
Long overdo, for both it and JJ. I'm excited because I have the 1993 figure in question as well as some gashapons. It's nice seeing things make a come back like this.

I don't even like Megalon, but I'm so happy to see that figure come!!!! Has anyone purchased from Amoktime.com? I see that they have some vinyls there for a good price, but I've never bought from them before.

WOW.

Both designs look great, but Ghidorah’s pose especially looks dynamic!

No spoilers please ;)

We’re laughing, but with G-Fes online in a week, and something else SP related, there’s definitely going to be more reveals soon.

That Godzilla looks awesome, like the lovechild of Legendary and Heisei. That one's a must-buy for me.

Do I read the text right? They're gonna pre-sale them from May 19th onwards at the physical location of the ride at the amusement park & from June 1st onwards at the Godzilla store and other locations as well? If true it makes one fell less inclined to pay scalper prices, since they may to be around in higher quantity than other event exclusives were.

I’m a bit new to the realm of Bandai collecting, if these do go up for order, where would be the a good place to order from?

Crap. I've wanted a Megalon figure for years, but I've basically decided to stop collecting toys for the time being. There's too much I would want coming out this year, and I just really shouldn't spend all that money or fill up all that shelf space if I don't honestly care about the damn things anymore...

...but MEGALON...

Glad to see Megalon getting a lot of love this year. With the MMS releasing a variety of Showa kaiju the past few years, it does make me wonder if Bandai is testing the water and seeing what sales look like for them to see if doing Showa SHMA is an option now.
I can do you one better. I bought the YMSF Megalon LAST WEEK thinking that these mms Megalon rumors were just rumors.

They'll be exclusive to the Seibuen Amusement Park from May 19 but they'll be available at the "Godzilla Store and others" (Twitter's translation feature) starting June 1.

Well damn, that’s a shame. Gotta be on my toes in case it does release on other digital stores

Besides that, i really damn hope that all this Showa and Singular Point MMS selling so well means we’ll be getting Showa and SP Sh. Monsterarts figures in the future, because goddamn, i need a Godzilla Ultima, SP Jet Jaguar, Salunga, MegaroGoji, MG2, and Showa Jet Jaguar SHMA now
