I LOVE that a Monsterarts Gamera II figure is announced RIGHT after I finally break down and pick up the Revoltech Gamera II figure. LoL

Such is life I guess.

science experiment gone wrong
I was wondering what your response was going to be after I saw you post the pics of the revoltech Gamera on FB.

Gamera is up for preorder now on amiami at an awesome price.

Hopefully everyone picks this guy up. I know some of you are gonna think I'm weird but I hope we eventually get the Showa Gamera and a few of his rival kaiju like Guiron, Gaos and Zigra. I want the Showa version for nostalgic purposes.
Oh I totally want the Showa Gamera kaiju! The Showa guys are where it's at. I especially want Barugon and Guiron

That is a good price initially but won't shipping to the US just be like $30 anyway? So the price isn't really that discounted? That's always been my experience with amiami anyway

Meh, I couldn't give two flying shits about the Showa era of Gamera as those movies absolute stinkers. I own them on DVD because I feel compelled to, not because I actually like them. I mean, the first one was pretty good, but Barugon is way too long and boring while the rest are just crap. Give me Irys, Legion, and Gyaos and I'll be perfectly happy.

Anyway, I'm not going to get him from any Japanese sites as I want to know about his quality control before I even preorder him. I want to make sure his eyes are not going to be jacked up. That he is not going to have Kool-Aid all over snout. And that his teeth will be properly painted.

Ya I can't believe that ever made it out of the factory in such terrible condition, especially with what we were paying for it and how much they tried to build hype

If you ship it EMS with a bag of rocks, maybe. Gamera's not going to need a huge box like some of the MonsterArts do and has no diecast or anything else that ought to make him unnaturally heavy. Probably around $10 SAL and $15, maybe $20 EMS, and only if you ship him alone with nothing else.

No matter what, he's still not going to cost the $100 people kept erroneously parroting.

That's right Baltan. I've only been burnt once by amiami when it comes to shipping. King Ghidorah was the only figure that made shipping skyrocket and that was because of the huge box he came in. Gamera isn't going to be a problem at all just like Godzilla and any other regular sized Monsterarts figure.

I exclusively order from eKnightmedia because they always have their pre-orders at a $10-$15 discount and they always have free shipping on anything over $35, plus it's American which is always a plus. Anything to help them know there's a real market here right?

My current set up with the new effect sets:
Looks awesome. I think I might have seen you post that on Facebook in the Toho Kaiju Union right?


By the way, who are your top five on your wishlist right now? Mine are:

1. Garuda re-release (I can dream)
2. Muto 2-Pack
3. KingGoji (Godzilla 1962)
4. Guilala
5. Clover

As I wait for my Larva set to arrive, I decided to mimic one of my favorite scenes from G2000:
