It's Puzzling.

I saw the new Anime-Godzilla last Friday and much of it was puzzling to me. (Mainly because it was in Japanese and confusing as heck.) Most puzzling of all is why I had to wait an hour to get a glimpse of Godzilla and even then he didn't do too much. Still worth seeing and I'm looking forward to watching it again in English and the third movie in the trilogy in November.



I bought a Clear-File including some scenes from the movie.





There were several other goodies but I didn't bother with them. Perhaps I'll wait until they're sold in the Used Goods stores. I did though attempt to win a really big G in a different shade of blue than the ones I already own.


What's puzzling is why I didn't give up sooner.



Several months ago I scored this jigsaw puzzle, at only 300 pieces I should be able to complete it. The trick is finding space in my place to assemble it.


Then a few weeks ago I scored this sweet item. At 1000 pieces, it'll be even more difficult to find space for it!


Some day...

Just When I Thought I Was Out...

I would have been content with the Avengers goods I'd already acquired but then those money-grubbing weasels at Happy Kuji decide to start another campaign.

The final item is the coolest of the bunch, a large figure of Iron Spider.


There are two of each of these figures as well. Click the link above to see them all, otherwise these are the ones I've snagged to date.





The weirdest items up for grabs are these "Finger Skateboards". I have four different ones so far though I'd be happy if I don't get any more.





I got two Cap-skateboards so I popped one open. I'm just as adept on manipulating the finger version as I am the life-sized models.


You also get a MARVEL sticker.


Most plentiful of all (though I've yet to receive only the one) are these posters.



















This is the one I landed. They are pretty nice, I must say.


At 700 yen a try, the posters and skateboards are overpriced. But those figures are worth every penny yen.

In case you aren't familiar with the quote in this post's title, here it is:

On the Edge!

I just re-watched 怪獣惑星 Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters (Anime Godzilla) and found the first hour to be dull and full of exposition and talk. BUT, the last half hour was wall-to-wall action with a great score to boot.


I'm now pumped to see the sequel, 決戦機動増殖都市 Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle tomorrow!


This flyer is the only info we have so far...


There have been NO goods and very little promotion for this movie as of yet. The last one had a ton of promo, yet nada for this. I hope this does not bode poorly.

I think I'll take this little guy to work with me tomorrow.



I dug up this unopened t-shirt from the last movie that I UFO-caught last time around.


Phew, it fits!


Details about the movie soon!

(Rampage also opens tomorrow! Kaiju overload!)

I Gatcha Avengers Right Here!

Apart from a set of Badges that came out prior to the release of Infinity War, there weren't any
ガチャポン (gatchapon) available. I only picked up two Capsules worth of badges for I got two of the coolest ones in my early effort.



Here are the rest of them, I believe they are only 200 yen for the pair of badges.



Then after the movie came out, if you looked hard, you could find this set. I have only seen the Capsule machines twice in my travels. Cool looking little rubber straps. (300 yen each.) I managed to complete the set of six in only six tries! I have a friend who I know would like Spidey so I tried twice more and got it.







Good to see Loki amongst them and I do indeed like Hulk the best.



Then last weekend, at an Aeon Cinema in Kitakami, I came across this set. I fed many many coins into the machine and was down to my last 3 coins before the mall was closing. And I got the elusive Hulk I sought.


Hulk and Thanos are "big-sized" versions.



Both Starlord and Rocket are packing heat. Be sure to not over look their weapons when assembling them like I almost did.










 Here's a pic of the machine in question. Thor is surprisingly absent from this set. (I have several doubles but I can't locate them at the moment. I was tidying and they got buried.)


Will this character be available when Venom is released?
