    I will say that I enjoy his interviews with Pixel Dan. He seems like a fun asshole. In the best possible way.

    The local Target restocked a lot of stuff, like the Alien 3 Xenomorph, Burning Godzilla, Legendary blue Godzilla and THIS guy!:

    Absolutely love the gauntlet!

    Edit: And of course, in pure NECA style, one of the tips of the shield gauntlet is snapped off.
    *sigh*
    Too much trouble to return it, so I'll probably just fix it myself.

    Also, the lack of thigh swivel is disappointing. He still poses okay, but the lack of that joint is quite obvious.

    He has thigh swivels, yours might just be stuck. Which is also in pure NECA style, I suppose lol.

    Well heck, the thigh swivels are there at the top of the thighs. And one is frozen.
    NECA.
    Still, this is a decent figure. I really like the overall design, but some of the execution could be better. The head comes off pretty easily, plus seems to have limited motion. The armor gets in the way of the shoulders, and the backpack is somewhat wobbly. I like that the left side is articulated separately from the cannon so he has an over-the-shoulder gun.

    You finally have the Lasershot Pred at hand @Yaujta!

    Like I mentioned before, heat the joints up before you pose the living crap out of them. The inner thigh swivels are there, you have to warm up the joints and free them up as it looks like they just painted the figure and let it dry up on a neutral stance.

    Any word on the new Terminator Dark Fate Sarah & T-800? After playing as the T-800 in Mortal Kombat 11 and then seeing Dark Fate in theater today I went straight to BBTS and preordered both. It says November but I haven't heard anything about them since they were announced.

    I haven't bought a NECA Terminator since the Ultimate T-1000 which broke right out of the box, meanwhile I still have my T2 T-800 which has good QC. I'm hopeful these two releases have better QC then the T-1000.

    I love the Godzilla poster boxes, I have been picking up the ones I can find. Are they ever going to do more kaiju than just Godzilla though? It would be cool to have his rivals from the films for each of the Godzilla figures they have made. I know about the SHMonsterarts ones but that is way out of my budget.

    I'm pretty sure they can, but they've said they won't since they won't sell. I could see that with Gigan or something but I feel like Mothra would be a good seller.

    Awe man, I thought they were fixing the head, but nope, it still doesn't look like the proper one for that movie.

    Also, the same blast effect again? Couldn't they at least color it blueish?

    Picked up my first ever Neca figure today. I was torn between 54 Goji, 94 Goji and 2001 Goji, but ultimately settled on 54.
    Conveniently, i'd also gotten Siege Lionizer a few days ago, so I had a pretty good effects part to use.

    Believe or not, I think his responses have become more... diplomatic over time. They used to be hilarious.

    My favorite was how he said something like Neca figures weren't actually fragile, that it was the customer just being too rough with them.

    Even your amazing pictures can't fully shine that turd.
