Gorgo

Reptilicus and the Rat-Bat

Reptilicus and the Rat-Bat both had the same packaging in the USA: a folding card around their necks, fastened with glittery elastic string. It was only for the Irisawa release that a box was made for the Rat-Bat. The Gorgo header was produced because Irisawa requested it as well.

Also, the reason there is no folding card for Gorgo is because the Reptilicus and Rat-Bat tags were produced at the same time; Jim wasn't entirely happy with the results from the US printer (a lot of bad tags were discarded). The Japanese printer did a much more consistent job with the Rat-Bat box. By the time Gorgo came around and Irisawa was asking for a header card, he just let the Japanese printer handle it because he knew there would be no quality issues.

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle.

Riddle me this, Roger...

Any particular reason there's no glow version of Gorgo & son while there are multiple glows of Reptilicus and the Rat Bat Spider? Just wondering...

And, of course, also pining for a glow Gorgo...

And also wondering whether my constant harping on about glowies is getting annoying to everyone... ;)



[great review as always, Nekrodave!]

Believe me, I've been

Believe me, I've been letting him know that the world needs a glow Gorgo since day one. It might happen some time in the future.

Thanks, Roger...

...for the clarification. I've got two Rat-Bats (the red and the "Neighborhood" versions) and both came in the box. I could have sworn I'd seen another one in a box as well. But I will defer to your more intimate knowledge.

As much as I'd be happy to see a glow Gorgo out there, a whole new character would be dynamite. :)

Haha, sorry about that. I

Haha, sorry about that. I know I read that review when you posted it, but when I linked to it, I just looked your profile and copied the link location without clicking it. I forgot you had the box as well.

Man, I'm just not thinking lately!
