    Have those finger puppets ever had a reprint?

    The King Godzilla puppet is excellent.

    Kaminaga-san posted a video about the character recently:

    I got my first vintage Marumon recently, the Bakula! It is the biggest vinyl I've ever owned.

    Wow! Those giant size ones are fantastic looking. Looks like it's taller than 30cm, is that right?

    Thanks, Roger. I didn't measure its height, but very likely. It is taller than a Longneck's Majin.

    @rattanicus @Mr. Humphreys Thanks, fellas:D:D.

    I took photos of the Marusan Original Kaiju that are on display at Monster Patrol. They don't have all of them there, but they have many:

    Kaminaga-san told me something interesting about Gosura, the giant-sized two-headed pachi Gomora. He never reissued it himself because it looks too much like the real Gomora, but when Marusan and Medicom collaborated on creating new tooling to sell a reissue, they were only able to release it after getting an Ultraman license from Tsuburaya.

    W.____O.____W.___ :shock:

    Just an unbelievable toy adoption there. My sincere and deepest congratulations and respect on that giant Doragiras, Josh. Such an epic toy - and one I have dreamed of many times. You really don't see the extra big fella come up for sale at all anymore, and to actually win one is just incredible. This is the heart of true vintage collecting right there. And couldn't have happened to a greater dude, too. Well done, sir.

    An incredible way to wrap up the year. (and he is in superb company, too) :thumbsup: Thank you very much for sharing, and all the best tips of ye olde hats to such a wonderful new member in an excellent vintage family.

    Great score, Josh. I am hoping Marusan does a 450 series Doragori in the next couple of years.
