I mean... I’d potentially buy a Bonesaw... but I get your point.

Ahh, well at least the weirdness of the other pic is cleared up since you can see Rodan’s neck is bent down to remove negative space. Really cutting corners on this mold.

The way you guys are complaining is legit and makes sense. Plus there is some wit to it and it is for the most part constructive. It has more to do with the (some now deleted their tweets) of people claiming they will never buy a NECA figure again. That to me sounds like a childish temper tantrum.

I understand how it would bum some people out because that means the best "high end looking" figure would probably be either X-Plus or MonsterArts which probably won't be less than $170 etc... When I heard they weren't making one I went, "wow really?" I was genuinely surprised that they weren't making that figure.

I haven't looked into the situation since last week but I am curious what the business decisions were. If I had to take a guess the cost of making the figure and packaging vs. what Toho(maybe WB/LP) takes out of the figure's profit doesn't make it financially feasible to make.

I've no doubt it's all about cost, not that they don't think he'd sell or anything like that. If that were the case they wouldn't be making Mothra or Rodan either.

NECA likes to keep their figures in scale with others from the same series (as Mothra and Rodan are with Godzilla) and also look to re-use parts for other figures whenever possible. That'd mean Ghidorah would have to be huge, at least twice as big as their KotM Godzilla figure, and they probably wouldn't be able to offset the cost of such a figure by using some of its parts later on down the line, as they have with their Alien Queen for example. Plus the necessary price would probably push it into "super duper premium uber loadsamoney" territory, and potentially out of reach of people who just want to collect all four main monster figures at a non-super expensive price.

So yeah, disappointing for some no doubt, but I'm not entirely surprised by the decision.

I just got my '62 Godzilla in the mail and couldn't be happier with my purchase! Had to take a hair dryer to him to loosen up his jaw and arm joints (plus that tail ball-joint takes a bit of warming up and elbow grease to fit in!). Really love that he comes with a breath accessory and the packaging is gorgeous!

I skipped out on NECA's G'54, G'85, G'94 and GMK Goji figures (their Shin Goji left something to be desired too) but this is a huge step-up! Here's hoping we get another Showa-era Goji or MireGoji next!

NECA confirms they can also do past versions of Mothra and Rodan too, not just the KotM versions:

SO my Target just eliminated their NECA display and clearanced off all of their products. No wonder they never got Godzilla 62 in.

^ Cool pics!

I especially like that big '62 you have! I know Medicom offered that, but who made it originally?

Yay, a Target finally stocked the 62 Gman in my area so I got my replacement hand for him. Kind of glad I only needed the hand because the paint job on the one I picked up today sucks badly.

So NECA revealed Fire Godzilla, Godzilla 64, boxes for G'94, G'84, Burning G. G'84 seems like it has been improved, although they still have that damned long toe nail. They gave him new dorsal plates, new hands/forearms, maybe an even more improved head BUT they couldn't just trim that nail.

And with G'64 they can finally do a more accurate NES Godzilla.

The G64 on display looks vastly superior to the one from the promo pics. Why the hell would they even release those promo pics?
