Solution: buy the SHMA for yourself and buy a NECA for every member of your family this Christmas.

Like, I want the SHMA one, but I also want to support NECA making what looks to be a very high quality figure.

I dunno. I get that, but in the end, I want what I’ll be happiest with. And historically I have vastly preferred SHMA. I’m not a loyal SHMA diehard. I do my research and only get ones I truly want. But in my experience they truly look and feel like high end collectibles that look like they walked right off the screen. NECA, on the other hand, even their best figures (like G’54) just feel.... clunky. And the sculpt details can border on amateurish under close scrutiny.

The only exception re: NECA has been G2014. With access to the digital files the sculpt was spot on and the figure feels far more refined and professional than any of the others I’ve bought from them.

NECA just confirmed they're doing Godzilla: KotM figures, and they have the license to do more than just Godzilla himself this time.

Hope that they use the same digital sculpting technique from g14 on the new ones too.

And since they're doing Mothra, Ghidorah, and Rodan, does that mean they could make other version of them? Say, the Showa versions? I mean, I'm pretty sure I know the answer but I can still hope.

They had the license to do the MUTOs as well, but they never used it and let it expire

There's no contest here for me - if the NECA's joints all work like they should, this G62 looks well worth $20. The SHMA looks better, of course, but not $75 more better. I'm not spending that much on one figure, anyway (I've only done that for, like, one scenario).

I'm going for the NECA because it's 20.00, and I'm sort of moving away from these sort of figures. I think both look good, but I'm just more likely to drop 20 for the NECA one.

Got my 1st Neca yesterday. The '54 Godzilla. Dont think I am opening it up. Nice looking sculpt and the weight did surprise me. No visual defects from what I can see. Very pleased right now.

Sweet!


Anyone know what this stuff is called so I can search for it? I would love some of this. Hopefully there is some of those big round fuel tank things that always explode for sure.

On the subject of buildings, check these out...https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-144-Ruined-D ... Sw9mFbDToo
These are N-Scale(more or less) buildings that snap together and look great with those Billikens! :D

I don’t know what they’re called, but apparently they were sold in vending machine capsules and some deluxe ones included lighting kits. Someone somewhere (tohokingdom probably?) posted a link to an online store that was selling them a while back. They were pretty reasonably priced. Now that I think about it, I rather regret not ordering some.

Found the link. Looks like some are sold out, but most are still available. And yes, they do have the spherical oil refinery tanks!
