    I really like this, very nice vintage pick-up.

    One of my favorites too. I have a mini version of this.

    Nice paints on your Hedorah, B-Lister. I got my Y-MSF Glowie version painted by the KaijuZoo in '06.

    Man, I loved that thing
    Bandai did a really nice job on Mechani-Kong. I just wish they would have included his Bomb Belt.



    Raymundo came to the rescue years later.

    Hedorah still gives me the creeps.

    That Bullmark Godzilla reissue hits all the right buttons for me.

    "Reissue" isn't quite appropriate...it uses the same tooling and vinyl as the original Marusan, because Marusan went under, and Bullmark acquired the tooling. The figure is still vintage, just a year or two later than the Marusan. There have been many reuses of the tooling since (by both Bullmark, and later a new iteration of Marusan), but this is still a vintage piece from the early days of Godzilla vinyl.

    Thanks for the clarification. I don't collect these and know nothing about the collecting niche except the term "sofubi". And the only ones I have are The Penguin and some Henshin Cyborg reissues.

    Sofubi by the way is a japanization of 'sofvi' or soft vinyl.
