Bullmark Megalon

Every now and then, ya gotta break out the big guns…

For Bullmark collector, there was a bit of a ruckus about a month ago. In rapid succession, a number of highly sought-after Toho vinyls popped up. Far and away, the more celebrated of these was the legendary green Godzilla that Brian Flynn scooped up!

Also causing a stir around the same time, a mysterious Mechagodzilla appeared that Mike Johnson told me was an especially rare vinyl variant. IIRC, that went for around 500k…far too rich for my blood at the moment…

Ah, but with all eyes and anxious keyboards watching what would happen with these two titans, the humble Megalon appeared (“humble”, my ass!). And no one seemed to notice! It was listed originally for 200k, which arguably isn’t a bad deal at all…even with today’s exchange rate. No action. The auction recycled. No action again; it recycles again. In the middle of its third week, I had Tokyobuyers contact the seller and offer 150k. No response, but upon the third recycling, the seller dropped the starting bid to 150k and added a BIN of 200k. Still no action…and the very morning of Brian’s green Goji, I swooped in and scored it…30 minutes before Brian’s fabled purchase!

Broke as hell, but happy, I received Megs and a bunch of other Bullmarks last week. Walker, Nekrodave, and I took a nice little group shot at the shop Wednesday night:

Anyway, here’s more fun with Megalon!
