    the Mechagodzilla toy?

    Yes. Apparently some think theyve been buying other molds like neca to fill the shelves due to the pushback of the movie, and therefore, the k v g toys

    This is something that may help a little


    Also reading the thread may help. An example of them buying is the shin godzilla

    Playmates is a lot of things but I never thought I'd see the day that it would go as far as to KOs from other companies and get away with it. What a world we live in.

    That doesn't appear to be the case.
    I admit I don't understand it, but it doesn't appear that they stole the molds.
    It seems most probable that the window for Godzilla Vs. Kong moved and they had to get something on the shelves.

    The video that I linked and the video that Duke Spino linked both suggest that scenario.

    I just want some company to do a decent ‘84 Godzilla suit. I don’t like Neca’s.

    NECA is retooling their 84 figure so hopefully the rerelease will be better.

    I found an entire shelf of Mecha G's in Walmart the other day. Every one of them missing their lower jaw.

    What a weirdly specific thing to either mess up in production or for someone to vandalize. It’s not easy to remove the lower jaw by hand.

    They're rereleasing the GMK Godzilla but I don't think he is having any alterations on him done.

    54, GMK, Shin, and 84 are all getting rereleased in the new packaging style and some of them have updates to them, but 84 seems to be the only one with major alterations.

    I'm in for some of those as long as they don't look like compost.

    Check the NECA thread. They had a splash page download thingy back in Dec with them on it.
