I've seen some shite as far as bootlegs go, but this is like nothing I've ever seen:

——

That looks to be a genuine Hasbro Marvel Universe Spider-Man figure, so I’m wondering if that is something that has been repackaged, was stolen from the defect pile, or is from an unauthorized factory run.

I start believing that I have finally parted ways with the Tamashi Nations / Bandai "S.H. MonsterArts" line of kaiju figures...

... Then they drag me back in again.

First images of the new Godzilla 1962, from KING KONG VS. GODZILLA movie:

Don't like the fire breath or the articulation, but that face is "my" Godzilla! (KKvsG was my first!)

Higher Res photos of the prototype G '62:

My hope is that this figure doesn't have the same quality control problems that have plagued this line from the get-go...

Bill -- this is one of the reasons that I haven't bought any of the S.H. Monsterarts figures. (The other -- I don't know where they'd fit in my apartment. Such is life in New York.)

I wanted to get the 1954 Godzilla but the paint job...meh. I hope it gets reissued with slightly different colors (pain the claws, at least!). It happened before with other figures.

I really want to get the 2002 Godzilla but I keep hearing about paint problems with the eyes and teeth. I don't want to end up buying a "lemon." 

And trying to get a King Ghidorah figure -- forget it. Way too expensive.

Adam, don't forget that the first production run of the S.H. Monsterarts King Ghidorah had broken wings right out of the box...

Well, that SH Monsterarts G 1962 will not be available from HobbyLink Japan, so Amazon it is..

It’s a 1979 Kenner toy. He did some “weathering” on the outer hull.
I think the only thing I want to track down and add is the missing dish on top.

No pictures for now, but MEGO Corp. has made a triumphant return (after 35 years!!), this time exclusively to Target stores... I've already picked up their Bela Lugosi Dracula, Jimi Hendrix, Fonzie from "Happy Days," Lt. Sulu and Mirror Kirk & Spock from "Star Trek."   Hoping to eventually pick-up Chekov, Norm from "Cheers," and their version of General Zod.

I've never really gotten rid of my obsession with all things Mego, so this is great stuff for me, brings a smile to my face!

Marc, for now I'm only planning on Zod for the 14-inch figures (no real interest in the "Year One" Batman, nor Harley Quinn), but if I buy a second one, it will indeed be WW!

That is a beautiful Millennium Falcon table. The weathering really adds a lot to it.

I have a question about the Eaglemoss collections. Is it possible to buy individual ships through Eaglemoss without having to subscribe to the monthly service? Or should I seek out a dealer?

I've bought most of my individual Eaglemoss ships/figures off Amazon.

Mike, I buy individually from Eaglemoss. But
1) I’m in the U.K. where they are based
2) They are not the quickest distributes in the world & @ times it has taken months for the order to arrive.

Amazon, if available, may be best

Thanks JB and James. There are a select few of the Stark Trek and some of the Battlestar Galactica issues I'm interested in. I'll check those outlets.
