Thats kind of been every NECA figure for me outside of the 62.


Even the 62 figure was hated on initially. Hel, the MonsterArts Godzillas have been the same way too. I remember how people were tearing about Kiryu Goji's neck due to some of the angles used.

So I guess NECA said at SDCC they will NOT be doing anyone beyond Godzilla despite having access to the other monsters. Guess it's back to my abusive husband Bandai.

Someone asked them about doing Mothra and Rodan from the Showa era.

They say they have the rights/licenses for Rodan and Mothra but they're focusing on Godzillas. They also were pretty cagey about GvK figures. I highly doubt that Godzilla's design is going to be altered so drastically in GvK, so I think we're probably going to get the GKotM19 figure with a different wash. It'd be great to have Kong too (or any other Titan/kaiju they gets tossed into the film) but I have a feeling we're not going to get much. And if the MonsterVerse doesn't continue after GvK I doubt that this series will survive without a US movie series.

Both


So no western collector's figures for GvK. Shame.

Well so much for my whole, "I'm done with NECA" spiel. I just couldn't control myself when I came across him:

Image

The sculpt is amazing, except, I think there is something wrong with his right arm. It can't bend more than like 20 degrees. Is this how it is supposed to look:

Image

Oh, and the fire breath accessory can't be placed in his mouth at all. It just scratches against the teeth when I try to put it in.

I finally got NECA's Rodan and it's nice. I wish the wings could swing up past his back. Although the SHMA figure looks like it has better body articulation, and no need to swap heads. But neither have the greatest wing articulation. I honestly don't mind the hinged wings the 90s Rodan had and wish the wings on either of the figure could flap but the best we get is NECA being able to "fold" his wings. I still need to get that SHMA double pack though. Maybe next paycheck with all my holiday hours.

After getting both the NECA and SHMA G'62, I feel no need to double dip with Godzillas when I have the SHMA. Although I would jump on a new version of the NES repaint with the 64 body.

The Burning/Fire Godzilla is tempting, but again I'll probably be better off with the SHMA. But I might get the V2 for a poster version, but I'd probably need to modify the head so it can look up.

I just wonder if they are going to actually do more versions of Mothra and Rodan. I'd love it to get a Showa version of them.

Nope. They said no more monsters outside of Godzilla.

I'm not collecting these, but when I see one in stores I can't help but pick up the boxes and kind of marvel at them. The packaging is spectacular!

I don’t have the figure. But it looks like that’s a left shoulder piece on his right arm. See how it extends over the top of the elbow joint? That looks like it should be the back of the elbow, not the top.

For the first time this week, I actually had good luck with something. My Target still had the other 2 64s instock so I was able to get one that did NOT have two left upper arms. With that said, I am quite impressed with this figure. In fact, it might be my favorite Godzilla figure to date. He looks as menacing as he does in the movie and the articulation is nearly identical to that of the MonsterArts minus the weird triangular cuts on the side and I can move the body back far enough to close the spine gappage if I want to. Though, I must admit, the gappage doesn't bother me as much as it does on the MonsterArt, but that could just be because as I said, I can close it if I so desire. The tail is fantastic and there is so much detail put into the dude. I wish NECA would redo the 54 Godzilla entirely. Of course, I also wish NECA would at least give us a Mothra to go with him, but the 92 MonsterArts version will have to do (and the small ass Revoltech version). The pictures NECA has released for this guy online and in the box do not do him justice at all.

Oh, and I finally took some pictures of Godzilla 62 that I never got around to doing earlier in the year.

So all the G'64 talk got me to pick it up and then I got the other 3 with Christmas cash. Burning Godzilla's fins are a tad Kraft Mac and Cheese colored but that's the only real detractor to that figure.

I plan on modding Fire breath so that it can aim upwards.
