    Very cool! I love Godzilla. I'll try and snag some pics of my stuff. My liscenced 007 digi-cam takes poor pics though. I've got a larger Ultraman colletion.

    Very good then! [​IMG]

    I have the 1:150 scale "1954 type" Kaiyodo Godzilla myself, but I haven't built him up yet. "Original G" is still my favorite! [​IMG]

    And the BIG (16" tall) Polar Lights Godzilla is surprisingly nice too. [​IMG]

    Nice Solo, reminds me of Art Adam's G collection. What color paints do you use for the Kaiyodo kits?

    I use krylon black and grey spray paint in a can, using them both at the same time for a one color look then I dry brush in a light grey, and then detail the eyes and mouth.

    "Kaiyodo's Big Guy - 1 meter (three feet) tall vinyl Godzilla 1989 - Sakai Sculpt - simply the biggest Godzilla kit ever made"

    He'd look good in ANY home or office! [​IMG]

    that one you're showing I didnt do but thats the kit all together when I get his tail reattached. and as you said simply the biggest godzilla EVER. thye run about 1,250 to 1,500 depending on who you can get them from. they are out of production to so this will make them quite rare.

    Thought you Zilla fans would like to see what I bought today at Toy Tokyo. [​IMG]

    This is a large pre-painted resin statue, by Unifive. An incredible sculpt of the 1954 "original" Goji.

    The last thing you see when you meet Godzilla. [​IMG]

    is that marking on his foot a 50th anniversary type deal. I know this year marks 50 years for the big guy. they are gonna make one more movie this december and then its all over again. no more godzilla movies, they cant come up with anything new and fanbase in japan hasnt gone up so they are gonna shelve the godzilla world once again, they WILL however get the remaining godzilla movies that have been made over here for dvd release. so be on the lookout at bestbuy for them.

    Yep! The big guy is 50! [​IMG]

    Still stompin' tho.

    And you're right, I'd heard that the next is the last for the original films. I can't believe they'll put him away forever tho... he'll be on ice for a few years, but I bet he'll be back again someday...

    And you know, I've been puzzling over what version this new Godzilla I've got is supposed to be! [​IMG]

    It sort of looks like the close-up puppet used in a couple of scenes in the 1954 film... and he's close to the "Tohosaurus" prototype maquette, too I think.

    In any event he captures that mysterious "essence of Goji" I had been looking for! [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    BTW, does anybody know if we'll EVER see a restored, Japanese version of the original 1954 "Gojira" on DVD here in the states? Or is it available in another region, but with English subtitles?

    [​IMG]

    All you can get domestically is the chopped up U.S. "Godzilla King of the Monsters" cut, starring Raymond Burr as Steve Martin... [​IMG]

    I think yuji sakai is gonna do a 2004 and that will be the last of the godzilla models for awhile. he did some great small stautes for the last movie that came out.kayiodo has all but quit any godzilla projects.

    I realize this is a nearly 9 YEAR OLD THREAD . . . but does anyone know of any CURRENT (and decent) resources for obtaining Godzilla (and other Japanese monster) kits ???
