  1. New Chapter status?

    Yeah, my guess is Takaya realised he needs to end the story fast and this is probably the first time he's given it some actual thought and planned an ending. He's got a hell of a lot of loose ends to tie up without making things too predictable or inadvertently opening up more questions that will need more chapters to resolve. He's likely spent the last 2 years storyboarding and script writting and once he's done it will run until it's ultimate conclusion. Unless he's wants to pull a Shinji Mizushima and still be writing in 20 years, he needs to get his skates on!! Hell, even Osamu Akimoto retired last year at 63 year of age ending a 40 year run of 'Kochikame'. By all accounts Takaya has 6 years left before retirement!
  2. Does anyone feel like the Guyver is dead?

    Well atleast we can thank counter656 for giving Guyver I a cameo in the first installment of 'the levels':
  3. New Guyver Figma's

    Yeah, amiami, CDJapan, Nippon Yasan are all great, but you have to pre-order. If you miss the slot you're screwed. The never tend to re-stock and when they do the prices go up.

    Sorry to hear that dude. I dont know whats up with US stock. I always pre-order from Japan. Had a look for you, but only Nippon Yasan still have stock and they are charging $100. Hope you get it soon!

    This month's cover.......sadly no Guyver news again
  6. Prime 1 Studios - Guyver Statues

    Updated Prime 1 Sculpts!
  7. New Guyver Figma's

    Thanks dude! I can never get over just how great guyver action figures are in general. As a design it just lends itself so well to being sculpted in 3D. I know Takaya is a massive monster action figure collector himself, so it's almost as if he designed the anatomy to work well as an articulated model. Hoping we hear some news at C3TOKYO2017 next weekend, but I won't hold my breath. Then we've got the 40th Miyazawa Model Exhibition (第40回ミヤザワ) in Nov/Dec. Failing that, next WonFes is on Feb 18th. 184 days to go!!

    Received my Guyver III! And with that, my display is complete. Freakin awesome! I love how things went full circle from 2005 to 2015! Lets wait and see if we get more! I don' want to have to wait another 10 years! Give me that Alkanfel already Goodsmile!

    Just to clarify what Matt is saying, only the first 30 (and a bit) volumes are available free online. If you'd like to be provided with translated scan of volumes 30, 31 & 32, you simply need to post evidence that you own at least 16 physical tankobon copies. This shows your contribution to the fandom through financial support of the guyver franchise. If you don't own any yet, it's a great time to invest. The more who do, the better chance we all have of the hiatus coming to an end!!
  10. You have to kill the Guyver....

    This ones easy. You just grab Saitama and tell him Guyver is a disaster level threat and will be a good sparing challenge. One Punch later ....boom.... Problem solved.
  11. New Guyver Figma's

    Nope, nothing. Guyver III came out amazing though. as expected! http://shishioh.info/figma_333_Guyver_III.php
  12. New Guyver Figma's

    Thats a shame. Same as the Soft Vinyl one. Was looking for something in scale to pose with my Sanken Gigantic. I guess at least this is more dynamic!
  13. New Guyver Figma's

    Anyone know what this is? Says 1/6 Guyver I from MaxFactory. Shown at WonFes? Any more info?
  14. Guyver collections... the REVISIT!

    Thanks Guyver1! Baoh and Guyver are 2 original favs of mine. I love that whole evil agency posing as a legitamate cooporation, doing secret experiments genre. And the unlikely hero who ends up "the escaped experiment". Id like to find another 80s series like that. For modern stuff Terraformars is pretty good I guess.
  15. Guyver collections... the REVISIT!

    Nice collections guys as always! This post is a little off topic, but I thought i'd share a picture of my latest edition. Whilst not Guyver, those of you who remember Boah will recall the similarities in plot and character design! It was made in 1984 by Hirohiko Araki (of JoJo fame) and i don't doubt that both Araki and Takaya took influence from Go Nagai and 80's Hollywood Sci-Fi. It's such a shame Baoh only had 2 volumes, but JoJo was also a classic, so can't complain. Anyway, the figure was a limited exclusive to Winter WonFes this year. Only 1,500 made, so I was lucky enough to find it on Mandarake for $100. I'm very please indeed!
