oh Don, I meant to show you, I got the Japanese 2019 Rodan now...

so I managed to collect all four of the Japanese King of the Monsters figures: Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah... they look great together and I really like how you can pose Mothra and Rodan in different flying poses, not just flat and moving forward like the Neca versions...

I really like the Burning G. Is that the 12" model? $52 on Amazon.

6" tall, 12" head to tail. It's misleading that they say it's 12", it's not.

And it's a $25. dollar figure, not a $52. one. Amazon is screwing people because it's a Target Exclusive. But you can order directly from Target, that's how I got mine.

Neca Burning Godzilla (Target Exclusive)...

(nicer collectors edition)

Hope that helps. :thumb:

They all look fantastic! I really like what they did with Rodan. I love how they made Mothra more menacing. The legs are creepy as hell.

It wasn't the creature feature, but I watched Skull Island this morning. I like my giant monster movies as much as everyone else. (except Mal), I think John C. Riley is the best monster movie character.

Godzilla vs Kong this year is going to be a lot of fun

My expectations are off the chart for this movie! I'm hoping for the greatest kaiju movie all time.

Since both Godzilla and Kong are good guys, it will probably be a Superman vs Batman sort of thing. And there can't be a clear winner, unless there will be a part 2.

Much to look forward to!

Funny kaiju story to share from my trip visiting the grandkids for Christmas. My grandson and I spent a lot of time watching kaiju movies on my laptop. He would sit on my lap while we watched the movies. Every now and then my granddaughter who is only 2 would crawl up with him to watch a few minutes of a Gamera movie. She would point at the screen and proclaim "turtle good guy".

You had to be there to appreciate it, but it was pretty funny to see this tiny little version of "Cindy Lou Hoo" talking about Gamera. I only let her watch the original rubber-suit Gamera movie as it looked about as real as a lego movie.

It's really bloody good. And proves mainstream western audiences (& critics) don't really "get" Kaiju movies.


A new Garo season has been announced:


This sounds rather different for Garo. Asfar as the live-action series go, Garo is VERY consistent so I am still confident it will be good.

Especially with the Amazons talk a page or two back, if you like that kind of stuff, but are turned off by the more kid-friendly tone of mainline Kamen Rider or Super Sentai, Garo is well worth your time.

Rila Fukushima is my favorite Japanese bad-azz. She just has "that" look!
