I don't think the Vinyl Artist Gatcha acronym was the best choice.
LOL!! Didn't think of that before.... definitely a bad choice
I thought the same thing when I first was checking out the line. I assumed it was on purpose immediately but then realized it was not...
Medicom X Marusan Giant Gorilla
What is with Toy Tokyo advertising old Godzilla Vinyl Wars releases as "Toy Tokyo Exclusives" all over instagram? Maybe they have been inhaling too many Funko fumes since filling their bottom level with them
Can't wait for those mini Rangeas(es).
I am not that experienced with Medicom releases. Maybe someone is willing to point me in the direction of where I will get those?
Im looking as well, Lulubell just got the first round of the gatcha series. So I'm hoping they will get this next wave too!
Interesting Medicom is now doing standard sized KR villains. Bummed they are not original mold repros so I'll pass on Cobra and Chameleon (one day I'll find the original standards). Pics of some for those interested though. Has to be a licensing issue as no overseas orders:
I think the Cobra and Chameleon are Middle Size figures (approx 15cm tall).
And the Komori Otoki bat is a standard size figure (approx 24cm tall)
Hmm I didn't even notice that but you are right. Interesting, wonder why they did that?
I think the intention is to complete a full range of Standard size figures, and now this is the second wave of Middle size figures. So hopefully they will continue both lines. I really like the Middle size figures! They are a bit pricey though because Medicom doesn't have the licence to sell to overseas customers. The header cards on the Middle size figures have a distinct retro style and look very cool!
These are still licensed under TOEI. But I couldn't figure out who's the sculptor. Unifive is not in the picture? I'm with Chris in wishing that the original mold were used.
i know the standard sized ones are sculpted by the dude at bear model, not sure about the mids though.
I could see that middle sized Cobraman growing on me now knowing it's size (Butanohana) now, but only if buying it was effortless. The whole middleman thing really tends to be the deciding factor anymore. I was really happy with my last used service just I like to be able to buy instantly myself (or order). Medicom really is in overdrive producing older toy lines. I was with them while they were doing closer to original molding on reissues (i.e. Triton of the Sea, Devilman, Yonezawa) but the streamlined newer molds of old toys aren't hitting me in the right spot.
@Lalo- thanks for the info. Bearmodel seems quite involve with all these Medicom releases.
@Lixx- I'm not sure if its the sculpt or the paint job. But i too find it a little too clean or refine?
Medicom RI vs Sofvi Life original Pretty Godzilla. Quality & size are identical, the colors are quite a bit different as you can see...
Also, what the fuck is this? Haha
^ Now that's a conversation piece! Will definitely consider ordering. Thanks for sharing!
Haha wow, that is quite something.
This 60 Years of Miffy set is a must get!
Black Batman isn't looking too bad either...
I dunno if there are too many robot fans lurking about these days, but this puts a tingle in my naughty bits:
Of course, it helps that I grew up in New England, where Force Five: Starvengers (Getter Robo G) was a very popular cartoon in the early 80's. Anyway, preorder here:
And while you're at it, preorder half a dozen of 'em. The more action Getter Dragon gets, the more apt they'll be to produce Getters Liger and Poseidon.
Does anyone have any idea how I would order one of these? I'm sweating it BAD!
Upcoming releases: Sofvi.Tokyo/Article
Lulu have an alternative colorway up for pre order now!
I was psyched to see that Lulubell has the Getter Dragon pre-order available for only $75.
Saw that one last night, unfortunately it doesn't do it for me like that weird purple and green one does. Guess I'll have to find someone to get one for me!
