The word "kaiju" has pretty much lost all meaning at this point anyway, right? I mean, there's Uglydoll "kaiju" now. It's basically a marketing gimmick, not an actual genre anymore.

I think Toy2r will make great Kaiju.

Anyone know what the "1231" in the promo means?

The word "kaiju" still has it's original meaning (very much so) as well as a slightly more expansive definition in the "neo kaiju" Japanese realm. These poorly designed Qees are not kaiju. True kaiju collectors and appreciators are openly deriding and disrespecting Toy2R for their crass misuse of the word. Kaiju is not whatever you feel like calling kaiju. There are healthy debates about the parameters of the word's meaning, but nobody with a halfway decent understanding of what it is would fall for this marketing scheme, as another commentator rightly described this particular abuse. This sort of nonsense just continues to muddle and confuse the meaning of the tradition for those who aren't necessarily "followers" of kaiju, and that's really unfortunate.

Pardon the potentially hostile tone of my comments here, but the misuse of "kaiju" is practically offensive to those who actually care about the Japanese tradition of kaiju monster toys, and have respect for it.

Not feeling these at all. I like qees but I don't think the platform should go down this direction it just looks very odd.

all in all - even as a fan of qees AND kaiju - these ARE NOT 2 great tastes that taste great together - not a good effort from TOY2R and I wonder who hatched this strange idea and helped Raymond develop these.......I have my idea but we'll wait and see what plays out




all in all i give this a D- for being late to the party and tryin to make $ on a growing interest and not even coming close to a real good design - half assed at best I say

I might buy one to keep on my desk and not in the detolf. The desk is usually reserved for failed blind boxes pulls/favorites.
