The president of Marmit has a reputation for being a bit nuts. In the late 90s he did a large run of US-exclusive Vinyl Paradise Toho characters which, as far as we knew, were being sold without a license from Toho or Sony (who held the US license at the time because of the Ferris Bueller movie). They were sold at San Diego Comic Con and some other shows but the sellers never got pinched for it, and those corporate lawyers were pretty vigilant in those days. I think the Desu Goji is nicely sculpted but it's not my thing. I don't understand the kind of prices it fetches, especially when there are so many of them being made. The other "20% Godzilla content" stuff like the Ultimatum or the other one where his head is sticking out of a koi are also not my thing, but as someone noted above I think the more those things are restricted, the more ripe they are for bootleggers. If they're not licensed Toho products and are being sold at high prices, there's that much more incentive to copy the toys because you'll only have one party (Marmit) angry at you.
