    And you lost a matango man, as well? That's rough - I have been trying to score one of those for a long time.

    Following this mantra, I finally got a hold of my first Sofvi Life Hedorah! They're way bigger than I thought, but SO much fun! The textures, stance and facial expression are great!!! I read on Instagram(of all places :roll:) that this was the/an original suit concept for Hedorah. Any truth to that?

    High prices over a grand like the above actually have been happening for a few years or more now. It's mainly with Dept-H exclusives. Certain standard releases are also hitting high into the $200 to $500 range. This demand came after Marmit change their distribution to Medicom Godzilla Vinyl Wars. Because international sales were available in the beginning for this line, it open up a new generation of collectors to stylized figures like Marmit. So more demand from collectors trying to get those older pieces. That is just some of the factors causing the demand and collectors dropping a lot of $$$ for Marmit.

    Anyone knows what's up with these? Are they exclusive only to the USA or will Medicom open pre-orders for them like all GVW releases?

    Tried googling but didn't manage to find anything.

    Has there ever been a Marmit or M-1 "classic style" sculpt of the 2014 Godzilla? I'm hoping that they make a Shin in the older style as well...

    @des_yeo03 - The 200 production run is incorrect and Michael of VampireRobots accidentally inputted that. I let Michael know of the mistake and he has corrected the description and removed the production run completely from his description. Diamond Distribution PX will receive 75 pieces for the standard size, which Michael confirm. VampireRobots secure the majority of those pieces which are now sold out from him.

    ^^ Damn that thing is amazing.

    It looks like semi-transparent vinyl . . . or am i imagining that?
    I wish i was one of the lucky 40 but i doubt very much i could afford it at the moment.

    @chimply.kaiju - Wowza! "Not many" but way more than my "none". ;) I really like that last one -- great color design with the translucent vinyl.
