    It’s times like this that I miss Club Tokyo....

    Does any offhand have a list of the various releases of the standard M1 JJ figure?

    off the top of my head I can think of:

    Blank flesh
    S7 version
    “Regular” JJ colors on a lavender vinyl
    “Regular” colors on light blue vinyl
    “Regular” colors on silver flake vinyl

    Were there any other official releases? I’m rediscovering my fondness for this toy, and I’m kinda surprised there aren’t more versions. I’m really surprised that there is no glow in the dark version afaik.

    There appears to be another “regular” variant (freehand paint application) on beige vinyl that came from a lucky bag.

    I think I’ve seen that one, or one in similar to that on eBay? I thought it was just a custom.

    Thinking about the S7 release makes me wish they still did collaborative releases from Japan.

    My recollection is that the painted beige version is from a lucky bag, maybe 2006-ish? There were painted and unpainted versions of each sculpt.

    EDIT: I'm wrong, it was way back in 2000. Check this photo of the LB, which has info in the description:

    M1-Go Wonderfest Lucky Bag 6 (2000)

    This Lucky Bag was the sixth one with full size figures that M1 released. The figures are all unpainted, and roughly 9 inches in size:

    Matango (Yellow)
    MechaGodzilla 2 (Black)
    Manda (Glow)
    Godzilla 1974 (Beige)
    Jet Jaguar (Beige)

    The Godzilla 74 and Jet Jaguar were new at the time to the M1 line of figures. The Jet Jaguar is modeled after a theoretical standard sized Bullmark figure. With the purchase of the bag at Wonderfest you were given the chance to draw for a special figure. A painted version of each LB 6 figure was sold at the grand opening of Nagoya Mandarake.

    There have been a couple of other samples/customs from M1 proper, but they weren't official releases.

    The GID version pops up every once in a while; it seems to be pretty common.

    Damn. That’s a lot of Jet Jaguars. And yet still not that many painted versions. Gonna have to see the variation in the two clear painted versions. And I’ll have to track a gid down! thanks!

    I just have the 2019 now. Love it. The spray fade on the head is awesome.

    I feel the same. It’s the only version I have at the moment. I’m waiting on a S7 version in the mail and I’m excited. I do wish we would see some more production paint versions with some wild colors. Every other GodIlla character gets that treatment. Why not Jet Jag?

    It is interesting that JJ received the giant size treatment from Bullmark back in the day, but no standard size figure or any export/Hawaiian variants. I don't believe there is even a paint variant for the smaller mid-size toy. I would like to see Yuji's take on a Hawaiian spray Jet Jaguar.

    I definitely need the middle size Bullmark. I’ve seen a GID reprint that looks really cool but came with a giant egg set with other figures and is probably hard to find.

    Exactly.

    JJ has always been my favorite Toho character, and the studio treats him like an unwanted stepchild.

    I think I'm up to 35 customs at this point...

    That's wild; I always thought the Inazuma-Go release was just the Japan sales of the Super7 version. Thanks for the knowledge!
