    Just seeing this for the first time today. I think it is an interesting concept. Not quite sure how to realise it as a skeletal figure, but I think this is about as good as anyone could hope for. Such a great scene, I am pleased to see some inspiration coming from it (and new sources); that is definitely something that is missing in this hobby by and large, no matter how you feel about its aesthetics. I think it does more or less work though, for what it's worth, I think the head could have been done a little more differently to really capture [my preferred] '54 look, but I have to say it is very AA and spot on in that department. The colours are cool, and I am sure this would look pretty cool in a painted GID look too, give it that underwater radioactive glow.

    Credit to @deafmetal for this one, but it absolutely should have an oxygen destroyer as omake!

    The upcoming MegaroGoji is looking pretty darn cute.

    It's cute but doesn't stand out as Anraku. Looks more like US Toys.

    I would kill to see more Gogas.

    US Toys always makes me think of those blown glass ornaments... very bulbous and smooth. I believe many would argue AA's digital sculpts lack some finer details, but they aren't quite as polished. I can definitely see a bit of likeness in terms of stature though.

    I too would like to see more Gogas. I'd say it's very possible that Medicom will produce more in the future, but I wouldn't count on them doing so anytime soon with their focus on these Godzilla toys. If it were up to me I'd ask them for another Zoromederu... such an awesome sculpt that was underutilized even before Medicom got their hands on his works.

    Any news on why this one is Japan only? Is this a permenant change?

    I think that's an error. Medicom seems to have templates for instructions and disclaimers like that, they probably just used the wrong one. Typically when orders aren't open to a specific country the option won't even be available from the dropdown menu. In this case you can still select USA and Canada.

    Gamera 3 is in the works. I'm liking this one a lot more than the '65.

    Hi,
    Is there a thread on the OG AA pre medicom? Kind of odd how late this thread started and devoted to the medicom stuff. I've been searching but not finding much. Any assistance would be great.
