Latest from Marmit

Here is this months offerings from Marmit Japan, with my mini reviews based on nothing but the pictures. Pre-orders must be in by September 30th. Items ship in December.

Ultraman 30cm model kit, ¥4,725 Another Ultraman

Real Sofubi kit Hedorah 25cm model kit, ¥3,990 un-built/unpainted. Assembly and painting is available for ¥4,200.
Apparently this is a "re-paired version", with corrections to the head and eyes. I don't remember seeing this before, though. Another Hedorah.

Lion Golan 23cm, ¥5,250 Lame.

Paragon 23cm, ¥5,250 Lame.

Gidon 23cm, ¥5,250. This crackhead is one of the best kaiju ...EVAR!!!

Magma Taishi (aka Goldar) 23cm, ¥5,250. They love this guy in Venezuela!

DX Mother from Robot Keiji K No size listed, ¥5,250. Looks more like a cultural artifact than a toy, not that that's bad.

Junker V23cm, ¥5,250.
Wombat Toys original, appears to have a reversible design. Ugly, but thanks for trying.

I've only posted the most pertinent pictures of each toy. More can be seen on the Marmit site below...

Junker V

I think Junker V looks pretty cool, myself. The design is menacing, and opening chest panels are always nice.
I'm not so sure about Magma, though. It looks like it's half melted.

I gotta say, your adding

I gotta say, your adding your "editorial" comments to the descriptions is priceless! Keep it up, man!

Still, I must disagree: I think the Lion Golan and Paragon figures are totally cool. VERY classic Bullmark. I'm actually quite surprised you don't like those.

The Gidon figure is cool. It (this Marmit sculpt) is considered superior to the Shikaruna Koubo sculpt. The monster is a patchi kaiju straight from Sekai No Kaiju (along with Zagora and Bagun, incidentally).

Oh thanks guys, I'm just

Oh thanks guys, I'm just having a little fun as usual, is all. Honestly, didn't think much of it.

@Sanjeev, I guess the Lion Golan isn't really all that bad. It's just it seems like it's trying a little too hard to be weird. The Paragon does nothing for me though. The Shikaruna Gidon isn't bad, but I agree, that I like the Marmit one better. It looks so afraid, like the last thing in the world it wants to do is rumble with some super hero..!

@leonydas, yep, I had a couple of friends from there who loved the show. I saw some pretty cool Goldar customs from there as well, either at auction or in pics from Convencion Avalancha (I forget). Honestly, I just couldn't think of anything else to say about that figure.. lol. Btw, I am awaiting two new jumbos from your country now. :)
