Seagorath

These guys age well, and I'd

These guys age well, and I'd say the early 90's is the tale end of "classic" vinyl. Seagorath even looks like the end of an era. Snagging it for a buck is pretty great, even though you failed to mention shipping ;) Just kidding! I'm sure that part of the story gets pretty ugly.

Yes, they do age well

I have several of the Bandai Toho kaiju from the early 80s to the early 90s and I love them (I don't really care for the newer Bandai vinyl kaiju). They are nice and sturdy and beautifully painted. I even have the large 1964 Godzilla from the Great Monster Series that was released in 1984 and it is gorgeous. Very fun to play with too, I would have loved this toy as a kid in the early 80s.

"Seagorus", no?

Well, to-MAY-to, to-MAH-to...but I go by Seagorus.

This is definitely one of the nicer-looking Bandai kaiju toys out there. Must be a testament to the fact that it's over 15 years old!

Still, if you give me a choice, I'd take the Bullmark over this...

Interesting. When mentioned

Interesting. When mentioned in the context of the toy, you find seagorus, but when in context of the character in an episode of the series, you get Seagorath.

I assume you can interpret

I assume you can interpret the katakana for his name either way (as it's written on the toy's header card, anyway).

I'd prefer "Seagorath" as it

I'd prefer "Seagorath" as it has a more Lovecraft-ian tone to it.:) Cool score on the vinyl though. The only toy I saw at a flea market in Japan was a Bandai Minya, but they wanted 3,000 yen. I probably should have bought it anyway, just to have the memento.
