There are so many interesting ones out there. For me this image of the Cloverfield mites/ticks/fleas, imagined as a daikaiju would be great…for a special ability I would consider a sonic blast or vomit webbing (great splorch of sticky strands)

And for you?

Space Monkey26 Mar 2013 8:18 p.m. PST

I'm torn between loving the classic monsters and wanting new, weirder designs. The actual Cloverfield monster looked awful IMO but a swarm of those 'fleas' (which there is a near-beer version of for 15mm/28mm), is a cool visual.
The enormous octopus/spiders from Monsters could make for good scenarios based on the movie's backstory.
Similar for that huge whatsit from… that Spielberg movie with the kids and their camera and the escaped alien.

Personally, I could go for some more giant robots… Mazinger and Giant Robo and Gigantor at about 4-6 inches high. Maybe those exist and I'm just not aware of them.

28mmMan26 Mar 2013 8:30 p.m. PST

Yeah, Clover was a bit special short bus…but I still like 'em a little at least :)

The fleas as noted above are the bomb.

Super 8 monster was fun…had a bit of Clover to him :D

As for your giant robots…I am 100% confident they exist in many sizes!

Space Monkey26 Mar 2013 8:44 p.m. PST

These Khurusan Parasachnids are the ones I'm thinking look a bit like the Clover fleas:

picture

In 6mm they'd be a nasty swarm of big'uns along the lines of Them.

The watermellon kaiju from Tekkouki Mikazuki;

picture

There are some cool looking Retro 50s style giant Earth Defense Mecha in Mikazuki also, this one, moonlight machine, takes on the watermellon;

picture

I am looking for 3" figures to refight the encounters but haven't found anything yet.

jpattern227 Mar 2013 4:15 a.m. PST

I'm with Space Wizard, the big guys from Monsters would be cool to see.

Also the big guy from The Mist.

Spudeus27 Mar 2013 7:36 a.m. PST

We still have some classic Toho critters missing. There was a web-rumor floating around that we would see a 3" collector's set of Toho's version of King Kong, Mechani-Kong and both Gargantuas, with other oddities (?). I would love that!

picture

Kong! Get – the – ship!!

3.5"-4": Kong & Mecha Kong. I had a nice oop Kong that was stolen at a con :(

4": any of the 1970's Gojira suits. That's a big gap in the historical range at that size, there have been some smaller 2.5"-3" ones.

Apache Chief

28mmMan27 Mar 2013 12:52 p.m. PST

Hmmm I think that is available if you really want one :(

Space Monkey27 Mar 2013 1:21 p.m. PST

Ooh! I just watched that episode of Tekkouki Mikazuki… such fun!
That big robot reminds me of an ork gargant… which has me thinking Epic 40K needs more kaiju.

Fonthill Hoser27 Mar 2013 1:57 p.m. PST

Alien. Nuff said.

Space Monkey27 Mar 2013 2:15 p.m. PST

The creatures from Alien… even the queen… don't really size up to things like Gamera and Godzilla… Ultraman would just stomp 'em like the bugs that they are.

GiantMonster27 Mar 2013 6:30 p.m. PST

I want figures of monsters from Godzilla the Animated Series. Trendmasters was going to release some around the time the series aired, but the line got canceled. :(

I suspect the Alien comment was regarding size relative on the table :)

28mmMan27 Mar 2013 7:44 p.m. PST

Agreed Giant Monster…the monsters from the animated series were for the most part spectacular…a real shame the figures never made it to light.

@28mmMan,

Thanks. It looks like it came out shortly after I finished collecting the Superfriends in 30mm. It looks like you can get a Toyman, Giganta and Apache Chief action figure. Groovy.

28mmMan07 Apr 2013 6:06 p.m. PST

There are options for this guy, Guiron, like this nice one in 12"

picture

…does anyone have one in 4"?

GiantMonster07 Apr 2013 6:51 p.m. PST

Trendmasters made a Guiron figure that was about 4"

I only have an SD version.

I have one, from the Gamera anniversary gashapon set:

link

He seems a little shrimpy, maybe 3" from his feet to the tip of his blade (in fact all the Gamera guys, tho nice figures, seem a little small), but he might be what you're looking for.

Personal logo miniMo Supporting Member of TMP08 Apr 2013 4:01 p.m. PST

I've got several different ones from over the years.

Twig6609 Apr 2013 1:35 a.m. PST

The Evil Stare Monster from Big Man Japan.

picture

Also, does anyone make a weeping angel statue of liberty?

28mmMan09 Apr 2013 8:12 p.m. PST

Those are both interesting ideas Twig…I assume Dr Who related Weeping Angel right?

Hmmm

That would be fairly easy, just a face touch up and repaint.

$7 USD to $8 USD at several online locations/dealers

How about this version of Biollante?

If we could get an inexpensive version of Mcvey's redesign of the Id Monster and or Ymir I would be most happy indeed

I know they aren't your standard giant monster style monsters, but there are several monster designs from the various Power Rangers series that I would like to have figures of.

Bandai seems to be making less and less figures of Power Rangers villians these days.

Furuta did make a Harryhausen gashapon range. Whenever I have seen them they are pricey though.

28mmMan12 Apr 2013 4:26 a.m. PST

They are in the Monster Hunter price range…$15 or so.

The sculpts are honorific to the originals which is nice.

:)

Great find and share.

Thieses19 Apr 2013 6:15 a.m. PST

konami made a a set of "modern-looking" collectable figures from the Gamera movies. Here is the "modern" Gurion. They show up on Ebay from time to time. When they came out they were about $5 USD each. They came in boxes. I got my set from Hobby link Japan

Thieses21 Apr 2013 1:11 p.m. PST

Twig66, they did make Gashapons for Mukahzuki. I am a fan also. Here is my Watermelon monster. They show up on Ebay from time to time.

The watermelon guy is great…loads of character :D

Twig6622 Apr 2013 1:33 a.m. PST

Thanks Thieses, that is great. Half the battle is knowing what exists, now it is just a matter of time until I find one.

GiantMonster22 Apr 2013 4:29 a.m. PST

I really like that watermelon monster. There needs to be more giant plant monster figures, like an Audrey II from the alternate ending of Little Shop of Horrors where it is rampagaing through the city.
