Latest Purchase

After much contemplation I have decided to reserve myself the X-Plus Toho 30cm Series Godzilla 2004 from the movie, Godzilla: Final Wars. The sculpt isn't absolute perfect, but I admit that it isn't that bad. Plus, there is a rumor that a Gigan 2004 is in the works for the 30cm line as well. So I thought that I'd get Godzilla so it would go with Gigan whenever (or if ever) it is released.
