    New Chapter status?

    Geez, Blockbuster! That takes me back. Didn't that company go under 5 years ago?? My intro to Guyver was also via VHS rental, but at a local convenience store. Probably back in 1999/2000. My dad let me rent out Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend, thinking it was a kids cartoon After that I was hooked on everything 'Manga Entertainment UK' was distributing at the time. Guyver, Crying Freeman, Fist of the North Star, Ninja Scroll, Akira, Ghost In The Shell, etc.! Wow, that was a blast from the past just recalling all that! Such nostalgia from almost 20 years ago!! Good times!!

    Really, after all these years? I dunno, maybe he signed a ****ty deal with Kadokawa and gets paid peanuts and never realised the potential, or the licensing revenue that the publishers have been pocketing. Maybe he's on strike pending a contract negotiation and can't legally publish his manga through any other media outlet. Maybe it's a Lil Wayne & Cash Money scenario! Maybe he's under a non-disclosure agreement to mitigate against reputational defamation. Whatever it is, I really hope it gets sorted.................rant over

    That would explain why trying to get him to pen more chapters is like pulling teeth...............

    New Guyver Figma's

    Indeed it is, and as much as I want to climb aboard the hype train with you my brother, I have doubt's we'll see any more from Figma until the manga resumes. Just based off the way GSC operate. If we do see a new Figma though i'd prefer it to be a character we've seen more recently, like Apollyon or Aptom.

    I can't believe we are approaching a 2 year hiatus now. That really is too long. We better get a chapter by April. Crazy thing is I can't imagine i'll ever stop checking for it. Unless its ever officially cancelled i'll be checking for decades to come if needs be!

    guyver 2f figma

    Yeah, I honestly don't know what effect that is. I own a lot of effects, but never come across this one. It looks like Tamashii and may come with a Kamen Rider or Gundam figure, but having searched extensively I don't seem to be able to find thate exact one. Sorry. You might have luck contacting Shishioh. I found him use it on a couple more pictures:

    Damn.....I really don't want to think the worst, but i'm starting to worry that Takaya is pulling a Hagiwara!! Hagiwara's last Bastard!! volume dropped 2012 and it's still on hiatus............... I remember being excited when Tecmo announced the MMORPG back in 2005, then announced it's cancellation in 2009. 3 years later the series entered an indefinite hiatus mid story and hasn't come back......that was 6 years ago.

    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!

    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':

    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!

    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!!
