You have a big collection.💪

You should find a better position for The Guyver from the movie (he looks like he's hiding 😁).

Could you show besides the Guyver what else you have.

(I can see a card from Yu-Gi-Oh and some Mecha) 👍 I like it!

Yeah, the Guyver in the back is actually Guyver 1 and not from the live action movies. But it's a very old kit. he is kind of hidden due to actually having his horn broken. Gotta get some glue to fix that up.

There also isn't any Yu-gi-oh stuff in the picture at all... though that is not me saying I don't have any, because I do. Was a pretty big fan of the card game for a while... Though figure wise, I only have a chibi Dark Magician Girl (always loved my old spellcaster deck)

I am currently waiting on getting some new glass shelves cut, as my current shelves are full... But have a ton of space in between that I can move them around to fit more... But I currently have over 6 of the glass units full, plus some extra shelves on my computer desk and on my walls... things that rage from a TON of Iron Man figures ( have always been a huge fan, even before the MCU), other Marvel Legends, lots of Gunpla, various mecha shows like Tekkaman Blade, Macross, Gaogaigar, Gurren lagann, Getter Robo, Code Geass, Evangelion, Pacific Rim, Transformers... a bunch of Kamen Rider/Sentai figures... Some video game figures from Halo, Devil May Cry, Mass Effect, Final Fantasy, KOTOR, Megaman X, Zone of the Enders...

But most importantly... the Samurai Pizza Cats.

I... have a... LOT of random stuff from various series/genres. I still have pics from my old place of all my shelves way back from 2013... but I have added so much since then as well.

Just added 3 more Bio Fighter Collection figures! And the best ones!

Unfortunately Murakami is as he is shown... No box and no extra hands... But I can live with that. I got him cheap alongside the other 2.

SPEAKING about the other 2... FINALLY got my hands on the BFC Gigantic figures. Sure, it's cool that I have the large Sanken figures... But the BFC figures have been grail level items for so long... And now I have them both.

I also have the BFC Aptom ver IV on the way, but I ordered him not that long ago, so he is still in transit.

But once I get him, I will only need Guyot, Purgstall and Imakarum... And I don't really care much for them... So it's good then that the prices they usually demand are so high that I would never spend it on them at all. Though Guyot can sometimes be found pretty low. but I'd consider all of them if their prices ever came down to reasonable numbers. *edit* Forgot about Neo Zxtole...

So, as for the full collection itself... Added Zxtole, Guyver Gigantic, Gigantic Dark, Proto-Zoalord Murakami and now Aptom Ver IV since the last picture from August.
I will be breaking these guys up eventually when I get more shelves. It's a bit cramped in there right now.
I will always love how the BFC Gigantic Guyvers are basically in scale with the Figma Guyvers. Like it is almost done on purpose.

At this point, if I do not get any other Bio Fighter Collection figures, I would be fine with that. I still new Neo-Zxtole, Guyot, Purgstall and Imakarum... But they are either too expensive or not a character I care too much about to spend the prices they are at anyway. IF I can find good deals on them, I'll still pick them up, but I am not hunting for them. I got the "good" guys, and that is good enough for me right now.

I was wondering is their more Guyver figures besides Guyver 1,2,2F,3 Imakarum, Guyot,Purgstall & Dr. Barcas? If so no one has posted them I looked…hard.  I found a guy bidding a Dr.Barcas with Aptom in a test tank. ($2299.99!) I  saw prime1 studios showcase their Guyver statutes they had Guyvers 0,1,3, gigantic, dark gigantic two versions of Archanfel & a Guyver Exceed.

So, the Archanphel and Exceed figures you've seen pictures of, are from the original Bio Fighter Collection from around 2005-2010. They were proto-types shown of figures to come. It is unknown if the non posable Archanphel was going to be a separate release under the non posable Bio Fighter Wars line, or just a painted proto-type for the BFC figure that is shown unpainted. Unfortunately the line stopped at Imakarum

Here is a basic list of the officially released Guyver action figures, or figures that are supposed to be coming out, not including live action movie stuff, since they are clearly differently designed. I might miss something, but this is most of it.

Manga Release:

1/6 Scale non posable Guyver 1 that came with vol 21 of the manga.

Bio Fighter Collection: (Fully posable figures with changeable parts. Precursors to the creation of the entire Figma toy line)

Guyver 1, Guyver 2, Guyver 3, Aptom ver 4, Murakami, Guyver Gigantic, Gigantic Dark, Zx'tole, Neo Zx'tole, Guyot, Purg'stall, Imakarum

Bio Fighter Wars: (non posable but generally in the BFC scale)

Vamore, Panadyne, Gergoile, Zerebubuth, Zancrebe, Ramotith, Enzyme 2, Test type(Malmot), Gaster, Darzerb, Thancrus, Elegan, Evil Aptom, Barcas w/ bio tube (was a limited special release)

Figma:

Guyver 1, Guyver 2 Female, Guyver 2 Female (OAV ver), Guyver 3, Guyver 1 2.0 (coming soon)

Prime 1 Studios:

Guyver 1, Guyver 1 bust, Guyver 3, Guyver 3 bust, Guyver 0, Aptom Omega Blast, Guyver Gigantic, Gigantic Dark, Female Guyver 2 (only teased so far)

Max Factory Anniversary Figures: (not released yet, only proto-types shown)

Guyver 1, Guyver 3

There was also 2 sets of smaller "trading figures" released during the 2005 Tv shows airing alongside the BFC figures.

There have been various 3rd party/bootleg figures out there as well as people 3-d printing their own stuff now too.

K-Soul is company that still exists releasing unofficial Guyver stuff. They have done at least a statue of Guyver 3, some chibi figures, and smaller busts of a lot of the Guyvers. They just released the bust of Guyver Gigantic I believe.

Then there was Sanken, who managed to release 1/6th scale figures of the 2 Gigantic's, and teased 1/6th scale Guyver 1 and Murakami releases... but shut down soon after.

But finally, all the old Max Factory 1/12 and 1/6 scale Garage Kits from the late 80's and 90's. They are still around, but have had knock off recasts sold by numerous companies.

Yes, there it seems like there is a lot of Guyver stuff out there... But most of it is over 15 years old, some of it over 30 years!

Good post! Reminds me a bit of the merchandise page we had on the old Japan Legend wiki. It didn't get completed before the wiki went down but it was pretty good for the main bits of merch you could get and has the above figures listed:
