Thanks. I just bought and downloaded the rules. They seem pretty good to me keeping the good things of the SoBH engine and carefully adding kaiju-specific parts.

And while I went through the rules, I did do another quick painting of a toy...a golden dragon from the stars.the paintjob was ultra easy, gold for the scales, yellow for the wings a couple of shades, drybrush, details.

And a scale shot with all my repainted 3“ kaijus. I kinda like the view!



A nice array!

What is the name of the one on the right as he is the one that I think I may have a use for?

You mean the turtle walking on two legs that is able to spit energy bolts and turn those legs into rocket-style engines?  o_o :D lol

It or he (or she?) is called Gamera. There are actually three pretty good movies made in the 90s which are really good but not as well known as they deserve to be in the west!

Is it Gamera?

Yes indeed! An Atlantean Kaiju-Cyborg that defends our world against giant predator birds from outer pace, incredibly large burrowing brood-mothers and teenage girls mutated into tentacle monsters!

OK, then......
 o_o o_o o_o

Thanks for that.

Incidentally, I have just had a very quick look on ebay and the ones that are on there are going for ludicrous prices.
Are these the same thing?
What should I be looking for?

I checked for gashapon-sized kaijus. You need to be patient and compare different sellers.
Many sellers in the US nowadays have crazy prices. I was kinda shocked, when last Xmas I wanted to make myself a present and found out that many of the gashapons I had purchased for €5-10 now were rather €20 or more.

Some good offers can sometimes be found at Amazon, or with auctions. You really have to look for those. Many gashapons or larger kaiju toys simply don’t sell for the prices demanded for them by fanboys and special shops for fanboys.

I got many of my models from a German guy, sometimes for €1 or €2 because I was basically the only one interested. If you can manage to get a few for that price, I was always willing to buy the whole lot to safe on postage.

Another hint is to look for unspecific terms like Godzilla model, Godzilla toy or simply Godzilla in category toys & models at ebay. Thereby you’ll often find real treasures. If I find some, I add them to this thread.
