Money Gone

I'm sure it's no coincidence that the Japanese word for money is "kane", either. I've an earlier version of this figure that I picked up at the Toys R Us when we were in Japan in 2006. Mine just has less paint, no DataCardass and different regular card.

Thanks to MEGALOMAN and SPECTREMAN and CDX, I'm beginning to like these soft vinyl kaiju. I enjoyed every minute of Episode 15 of Ultra Q and now I finally know the origin of the legend of KANEGON. A million thanks. Despite being a monster, he is definitely cute and lovable.

Leo, these Bandai figures

Leo, these Bandai figures are pretty cheap and common, so I assume you can pick one up at a number of domestic comic book stores, online retailers (like Chibi Goji Toys...though they don't seem to have one now), or even eBay.

If anyone really wants to get into kaiju, go to ClubTokyo, click "Search" at the top (without entering anything into the search field), then pick the monster you're interested in from the drop-down character list. Go through the listings and find the sculpt/colorway that "speaks" to you the most. Then, search eBay or Yahoo!Japan [Kanegon] for the one you want. And if you wanna buy from Y!J, contact Tokyobuyers to get started!

Thanks Mr. Sanjeev

I will pick one up next month, I have too many Group Sounds Records with TB ready to be shipped right now! Thanks for the links, as stated above he's too charming for a evil kaiju!!!
