Official Bandai DX Chogokin VB-6 König Monster Thread

Great review, jenius. Hadn't been interested in this at all, but after watching/reading your review I'm sorely tempted. Could you perhaps take some pictures of it standing next to a Robot Damashii VF-25?

I think that could be easily arranged but what mode do you want to see it in next to these other toys?

Gerwalk probably. Up to you man, only if you feel like playing around and actually have the time. :)

I'm not that much of a scale nazi, i could forgive that extra 10 lol. Who really cares right? it's amazing.

I agree with ruskii, gerwalk would be my first choice. If you have the time however, some shots of the RD next to a battroid Monster would also be appreciated.

No problem. I'm setting up my photo booth again for another round of shots and I'll bust some of the old toys out for a group shot or two before I put the Konig away. While I'm at it I'm also going to try to find a way to set up my video camera so the lighting doesn't completely screw up the white balance... I guess that's what I get for using such a cheapy video camera though. Anyway, I can imagine a shot that might work for everyone so I'll try to make that happen... may take a few days before I get it online though.

So where can we find good deals on both versions for these?

Got mine on E-bay for $172 shipped.

Not sure what kind of prices everyone else is getting. Seemed decent to me.

BBTS has it for $199.00 if you're stateside. If you wait until Joel runs one of his specials, you can get an extra 10% - 20% off.

If you're in Los Angeles, hit Frank and Sons. You can deal with some of the venders. Usually, if you are paying in cash, you'll get a pretty damn good deal.

Whats wrong with NJ?

we're famous for:

The first game of baseball happened in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1846.

The first "Professional" Basketball game was played in Trenton, November 7th, 1897

The first intercollegiate Football game in New Brunswick, 1869.

In the war of the Worlds radio prank, the martians landed in West Windsor Township, NJ.

Drive in Movie Theatres

Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra, Grover Cleveland, Bon Jovi and Buzz Aldrin were born in NJ.

The Lightbulb

The Salt Water Taffy Fudge

Electric Guitar

*back on topic*

Still enjoying my VB-6 awesomeness!

Also, New Jersey was a key location in the movie Bukaroo Banzai.

Somebody asked for a pic? This is the best I could do. If it's not exactly what you wanted, I apologize but I'm probably not going to be doing any re-shooting 'cause I made a mess pulling a bunch of toys out and then I had to put them all away.

whoa!?! even cheaper than the reg. version... very tempting...

Shipping kills it though. 5400 yen on shipping alone. That bumps the price to $190.

whoahoa! ruskii bit... thought your last reply meant you bit on the amiami offer... awesome powers of patience! :lol: congrats on the purchase. i just saw the movie last week and that credit card bundled w/ the SP ver. seems kinda cool now that i know it was shown in the movie and was used to buy off Ozma and SMS's service... B))

i'm still waiting to get my reg. version Monster... just one more week and i'll have it in my hands! can't wait!

edit - i'm currently re-watching MF TV and it's only now that i noticed that the Koenig did have them eye decals. all this time i thought it only had the shark mouth... :wacko::lol:

It has been a while since my last post in this forum. After I received my Konig... it's crazy not to share some photos of this baby. It is one of the best so far from Bandai and I really love the build quality as well as the aesthetics of the design.

Surely will come out with QTVR again if I have the time.

Enjoy the pic. ;)

Cheers,

ikhii

THANKS! Was going to order from AmiAmi this week, but this is even cheaper. Ordered 2 and the EMS shipping came out to 8300. Missed out on the stands though (it's only 15% off now).

UNSpacy

Just saw Hobby search has the SP version for 10000 Yen . . .

http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10116611

and sorta off topic but the deep blue stand is 50% off as well!

How are the joints holding up guys? I read this ain't that heavy, but got some nice metal parts where needed.

I'm f'n excited about this, i plug the laptop into my 55" led and click slideshow on my vb-6 special folder, about 160 pics worth of DROOL.

Funny, i absolutely love my weathered 1/60 tomohawk, and this being a variable destroid makes me want more destroids, that 1/100 Monster is in my sights.... 1/100 army!!!
