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.
