the Odinson and the King Of Monsters

Got a notification from Lego that the second set for Thor: Ragnarok is available and got it.


The Wife had a blast assembling the set and i dig the Gladiator Hulk figure. What i can say about both sets is that they are colourful. Like i said when i saw the teaser trailer for the movie, it feels very Kirby.

When i came home, my neighbors handed me a box from the far shores of japan that the postman tried to deliver and they took over for me (they even payed the import duty costs). It contained the second and third form figures of the King Of Monsters from Shin Godzilla by S.H. Monsterarts.


As much as i dig both figures, i came to the conclusion that they are a tad overpriced. Of course Bandai had to sell them as exclusives because they probably would not have gotten the numbers necessary to write a black number under the endeavor. I got them for a good price on shipping costs from a guy that sometimes gets me things from japan, but considering that we get an atomic breath version of Godzilla’s fourth form and no option parts set for the first release for the people that ordered the first iteration of the figure (like the person writing this post) makes these two guys feel like a cashgrab.

But seriously, looking at the price of the two Thor Lego sets and the Godzilla two pack i realized that i could start to change my shopping habits. It’s not like i don’t have any other hobbies.
