How’s it goin’, folks? :)

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, and I figured there was no time like the present!

Many, if not most, of us Godzilla fans, myself included, are avid collectors of DVD’s, toys, posters, and other kaiju memorabilia. In this thread, I offer you all a place to share info and pictures of your latest purchases, whether they be a little trinket you found at a hobby shop, an awesome score from eBay, or a massive haul from a convention! Whatever you have just added to your collection, if its kaiju related, share it here!

I’m ALWAYS adding stuff to my collection, so you can count on me sharing my latest purchases here when I have the time to share, and I invite you all to do the same!

Let the bragging sharing commence! :D

Woman, the DST Hunchback of Notre Dame figure, and... the X-Plus Tyranosaurus Rex from the original 1933 King Kong!!!!!!!!  HE'S GLORIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D He was a lot bigger than I thought...

The Biollante is in pretty good condition. It is a bid, so it rose to 54 bucks, but it is still a sweet deal. Here is the listing: BIOLLANTE!!

 

I actually really want that T-rex X-plus figure. I saw a picture of him and he looks fantastic!! Is he a 30 cm or 25 cm or just 6 inches?

G-Fan2000

MemberMothra LarvaeDec-15-2014 9:51 PM

I forgot to ask if it was the grey color version of the X-plus T-rex or the one with a white-ish shading on its belly. 

oiunk

Danzilla93

MemberBaragonDec-16-2014 8:17 AM

Its the gray version (B&W the way he was MEANT to be!), and I wanna say he's 25 CM.  I'm not an X-Plus collector (WAY too expensive for me...), so I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination.  But this guy was DIRT cheap ($32 or there abouts on Amazon right now!), and I adore the original Kong creatures, so I couldn't pass it up!

Now I just need that Kong...

Oh, I personally like the grey version better. X-plus is my #1 favorite Godzilla toy company, so I am really willing to pick this sick (Sick as in aweome) figure up!! Do you think 42 dollars is a good price because I saw one on Ebay.

^No problem, man! :)

Man, USPS tracking is srewing with me.  At long last, my preordered Y-MSF Gaira figure shipped on Monday.  The tracking said it was supposed to be here yesterday... NADA. -_- If its not here tomorrow, I will shed a manly tear.

Okay, thanks. I didn't noticed that you posted that comment on the 19th.

Its alright man, I've had those situations before. I remember when Series 2 for the PR line came out, I pre-ordered Leatherback in June. When series 2 got released, I was expecting for my package to be sent, but it wasn't.

Fast forward a bit to October. I forgot about the figure and so I checked Ebay and guess what? The seller messaged me that there was a problem so he was going to barely ship it.

I followed his word and waited another month since it came from a distant area. I check Ebay again and the seller messages me again and says another problem occured, so he needs to ship it again. Obviously I was aggravated and so I cancelled it.

Wow... that profoundly sucks.  Thats a horror story right there!  Mine is no where near that horrible! XD

It was a horrible disaster, the worst situation in my life (other than when I got kicked in the face, one of my pet cats escaped, when I got kicked in the private area and when I stepped in the shower with super hot water that almost burned me alive). At the end of the day, I did felt bad for the seller, but I also felt stupid that I let myself wait like for half a year and instead should've gotten it on a comic shop.

Danzilla93

MemberBaragonDec-21-2014 11:17 AM

Yeah... but stuff like that will happen.  Such is the risk we collectors run.  Don't beat yourself up. :)

My shipping info has FINALLY... FINALLY updated on my Y-MSF Gaira.  He should be here tomorrow.  He was supposed to be here last thursday.  All I can say is... ITS ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!! :D

Also, Christmas is nigh, and I know I'm getting some kaiju goodies in a few days!!!!

MemberBaragonDec-22-2014 12:15 PM

HAHA! XD Yeah, I have a problem...

I actually did just win a DIRT CHEAP Spike Jaw Baby Godzilla 1998... one of the ones that hatches from an egg!

And... *drumroll*... GAIRA IS HERE!!!!!!!! :D I like 'em!  THe paint on the face isn't perfect, and he has one HELL of a wonky right arm (meant to catch Sanda's arm to replicate their fight), but he's otherwise really awesome!  I have the Gargantua Brothers in 6 inch form, together at last! :'}

Yeah... that arm can be distracting.  He's getting a Type B figure in a while with normal arms, and I kinda wish I had waited for that, but I still like him! :)

Even though the Gaira figure has its flaws like the arm and the paint could be better, nonetheless it is a very neat looking figure and I must to every kaiju collector's collection.

Danzilla93

MemberBaragonDec-28-2014 5:18 PM

^Agreed! :) After years of Bandai sitting on their asses, we FINALLY have 6" scale Gargantuas!  Once they sell out, they are gone though.  We pass this way but once, folks...

Well, Christmas has come, and I got me a super haul of Godzilla goodies!!!! :D  They are as follows:

-The 60th Anniversary Godzilla 1954 Ornament (My God... I adore this thing beyond words.  The lights are stunning, as is the sculpt!)

-Microman Gamera 1995 (Hard to put together, but stunning!)

-NECA Scunner (This thing ROCKS!)

-Egg Series Mothra (SO CUTE!!!!  Mothra is my favorite... shut up.)

-Diamond Select's Godzilla Bank (So huge, and SO awesome!)

-Target Exclusive Godzilla (2014) Blu-ray (My third copy of the film, but I wanted that featurette!)

-Godzilla vs Spacegodzilla Publicity Photo Poster (A cool shot of Godzilla and Little Godzilla from one of my favorite movies... again, shut up.)

And last but not least... my brother got me THREE vintage Godzilla games for the Gamboy/Gameboy Color/Gameboy Advance (Godzilla, Godzilla: The Series, and Godzilla: Domination), and his girlfriend's family got me both the Godzilla 2014 projecting pen AND a super awesome custom Godzilla clock made from a vinyl record with a Godzilla/city sillouette cut into the top!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS INDEED!!!!!!!! :D

^Y-MSF is a company started and run by essentially one guy in Japan, and is not affiliated in any way with Bandai.  This guy sculpts and paints the figures himself, and Tempting Toys offers them here in the US as limited exclusives.

My last purchases of 2014 have come in... the Dream Factory Bandai Kiryu 2003 with Drill Hand and Damaged Eye!!!!!!!!  He was one of my Holy Grails, and I got him beautifully mint for a little over 50 bucks!

Plus, for an amazing $4.00, I got a great copy of Bob Eggleton's Whose Afraid of Godzilla, a picture book for kids!  I am a preschool teacher at my local YMCA, and I wanted a way to safely introduce Godzilla to my kids without scaring anyone!  I cannot wait to share this book with my children and share the Godzilla love with a new generation! :')

I'm just waiting for my last four perorders to show up, and that should take a few months.

I'm still waiting for:

The Japanese Blu-ray of Godzilla 2014 with the S.H.MonsterArts G14 Poster Version (which should be here at the end of February!)

Three sets of Kickstarter rewards, including those for the Ifukube 100 concert held at G-FEST last year (Ive got a shirt, a CD, conductor batons, some art prints, and other goodies coming my way!), the Hail to the King documentary from the Kaijucast's Kyle Yount (I'm getting a shirt, a photo book, some art, and my name in the credits, among other things!), and the Kaiju Gaiden documentary de to be released in March (Lotsa good stuff here, including posters, a BD/DVD of the movie when its done, and my name in the credits here too!).  The Ifukube and HTTK stuff was due here last month, so it hould be here soon!

The waiting game begins... :)

Well folks, I finaly did it... I found my Holy Grail figure!!!!  After YEARS of searching, my first figure of 2015 issssssss...

 

 

The Y-MSF Varan!!!!

 

Yep, this is my most sought after figure of all time.  It may not look like much, but I have been looking for this guy for years and years and years.  Only a few hundred were made (in various colors) in 2005, and in the interviening years, the figure has become incredibly rare and, when it does turn up, very expensive. 

Varan is one of my all time favorite monsters, and despite staring in his debut film almost 60 years ago, the triphibian terror has never recieved a film accurate, 6 inch figure aside from this one.  The others are expensive X-Plus statues or stylized Marmit/Bulmark-style figures.  As a collector who wants film accurate figures that scale together (and are not X-Plus expensive), this figure was the obvious choice.  But not only was it scarce, it was often over 200 bucks when it did turn up!

But good things come to those who wait... I FINALLY found this guy on eBay a few days ago for an affordable price.  He was mint, and being sold by the US' official Y-MSF dealer, Tempting Toys and Collectables.  (Apparently they found one somewhere!)  With the help of some eBay gift cards, I got it for very little money out of my own bank account!  All I have to say is, thank God no one else bid! XD

He got here today, and man, he is a 'beaut!  My complete collection of Toho kaiju nears completion!!!! :D

I just got the wonderful SH Monsterarts Rebirth Godzilla!

 

 

The torso can pop off easily however, but that's a minor complaint I have. This figure is pure awesomness.

MemberMothra LarvaeJan-09-2015 11:27 PM

Sorry for the SUPER late reply. I ws kinda busy in the holidays. Anyways, thanks for giving me the history of Y-MSF. I really love that Varan figure you got. I myself have always wanted that figure as well. How much did the figure cost?

Your so lucky to have those Kiryus. I heard they are rare and cost a pretty big chunk of money! I especially like the Damaged Eye Kiryu.

I myself have read the book and for me, it is pretty good. Definitely introduce Godzilla to the youngsters! The more, the marrier.

 

Daikaiju_Danielle, very lucky! I have 5 in my Wish List and have failed all of them. Such bad luck!

 

I got some brand new figures now. One is still coming, but the one I got is my favorite out of the two. The figure I got was the Yuji Sakai Banpresto 8 inch Godzilla 2000! It is a phenomenal figure and plus, the seller gave me a bonus figure that being the Fusion Series Bandai Creations Godzilla 2000!fvhh

Danzilla93

MemberBaragonJan-11-2015 8:05 AM

^Nice, dude!!!!  I'm still looking for that Banpresto maquette!  He's so purdy. :}

And you're welcome for the Y-MSF info! :) Its a great line to collect, but you have to jump on those figures very quickly, as only a few hundred are made of each character.

The Varan I found was originally listed as $150.00, but it was removed and re-listed at $130.00.  I used $75 bucks in eBay gift cards and only payed about $55.00 for it out of my own pocket! ;)

And I'm super pumped to bring my book in!  I just ordered a cheap copy of Godzilla on Monster Island (the picturebook, not the movie!), so I'm bringing that in too! :D

And Danielle, I'm so glad you got Rebirth Goji!!!!  He is an incredibly stellar figure!  I love mine to death.

Mine has a torso issue too.  Its a common problem with this figure due to the softer material used in the joints.  There is a trick to fixing it, though... paint a layer of clear nail polish on the ball joint, and once its dry pop it bake into the socket.  The added thickness will keep it in the socket much easier! :)
