MG74's head looks like a modified version of Poster Variant MGII and not in a good way it looks kinda off. Still excited for the figure though.

No it doesn't. I think it's just the angle you are looking at it but the heads look way different.

^ Cool picture!

My favorite Godzilla was the G'94 (first figure in the line) -After that they started adding too much articulation for my liking.

Among the other releases, the Battra Larva and the entirety of the Spacegodzilla crew (Mogera is one of the best releases in the line)

My favorite of the Godzillas is the SCV 2000. Excellent posseability, they got rid of the gaps, made the tail full articulated right up to the tip while also making the joints tighter so they don't pop off, and you can get him into a ton of fun poses. Not many Godzillas can pull off a Kamehameha.

I was hoping for both GMK and 54 Gojis for Xmas but that didn't happen. :-( Looks like I will just have to wait for them to go on sale.

Now that I've acquired a few Monsterarts of my own, and had time to get the feel of the figures, I understand both the compliments and the criticisms the line gets. Each of my three Godzillas, pictured above, have features I absolutely love - and at least one feature that makes me scratch my head.
G64 was my first. The sculpt on this figure is excellent, but marred by some of the joint engineering. The thigh gaps aren't too bad - they do seem to actually help the articulation - but what's with that back gap? It even looks sculpted to bend straight, but it can't; Godzilla is stuck hunchbacked. The paint job is good, but a little inconsistent as well.
Rebirth is nearly perfect, again with excellent sculpt, as well as perfect paint apps, and about as much articulation as you could ask for in this design - except they got cheap on the tail. The most flexible part of Godzilla's body. :?
G54 continues the excellent sculpting trend - seriously, you can't get this level of detail on a vinyl (lovely as they are) - and also improves on the neck & tail articulation from the other two. Again, this figure offers ample movement for a design that moved very little in reality. Unfortunately, the paint job is very plain. I feel like a little more detail could have been achieved, and while my figure's eyes are alright, it's concerning that a figure this far into the line would have as many issues as have been documented.
Overall, these are all great figures, but they have issues that really shouldn't be issues for the prices demanded, imo. I got all of mine (sometimes well)under MSRP, and I wouldn't pay any more than that. My Legacy of Revoltech Legion weighs as much as my SHMA G54, has a better paint job, and comes with nifty minifigure accessories, all for roughly 20% less of the G54's MSRP - which came with a bigger box than Rebirth despite zilch accessories.

S.H. Monsterarts seems to be a good line - but I'm not sure it's a great one. I definitely think it's an overpriced one.

Oh, and why did this line have to become "S.H. Godzillarts"? As much as I'd love to see some more Showa Toho characters, I'd like to see some characters completely unrelated to Godzilla just as much. Hey, tangenially, Evangelion is related now, so why couldn't Tamashii have done something this past year with those angel prototypes? The timing would have been perfect.
Seriously, let's see more Gamera characters. Let's see more Kong characters. Let's see Jurassic Park dinosaurs or Pacific Rim kaiju. Let's see some real VARIETY.

So it looks like SHMA is releasing another Shin Godzilla figure... this time with a whole bunch of accessories.

Spoiler Below:
Alternate jaw, translucency, 3(!?) beam effects, and stand(s)

Looks like 15984 JPY (~$140 USD), which is quite reasonable considering what the first release has been selling for.

So I guess Bluefin isn't going to be bringing this version over either. WTF? I don't like the design enough to even bother going through the trouble of importing it.

I'll make sure I jump on it early this time so I don't have to pay aftermarket prices. The first one was available for import from at least HLJ, AmiAmi, and HobbySearch.

It's a Tamashii Web exclusive, so no AmiAmi for this. Bright side, you'll have a solid period of a few months to get a middleman to grab it for you rather than competing for preorders.

Ah, you're right. Though I did find a place to order it that I thought was fairly reasonable (especially when combining shipping with the Form II/III set.

I hate that this design has grown on me. This is getting expensive.

Amazon has been dropping the price of the 89 figure, it got down to roughly $125.00 but has stayed in the $146.00 range.

I decided to grab it when it dipped into the $120.00 range. My only gripes are that the volume is a bit low and the fins don't fully light up 100 %.

But I really like it.

From what I have heard, no, definitely not. Go for the original release. This reissue has derpy eyes and I guess the jaw loves to fall off. How they gave a figure that had no quality control issues before issues this bad is beyond me, but then, this is the MonsterArts line, the after though of Bandai.
