    Me: i don't need the NECA 64 i don't love GvM and the suit is mediocre

    Also Me: that's the same suit used in Ghidorah the three headed monster? I need and like it now

    (I'm very strange)

    I've actually never seen the NECA GMK from the front like that. He doesn't look too bad outside of his tummy not being fat enough.

    Yeah. It's probably the first figure where NECA really "got better".
    Although, he's not really portly enough as you said.
    And it has the stupid bendy end on the tail.
    I'm so glad they stopped doing that.

    I'd love it if NECA gave 1994/1995 another shot with everything they've learned

    If NECA is going to tackle another Heisei Godzilla, right now I would rather they did the 89/91 suit rather than redo the 94 one. At least it would be one I would be willing to buy.

    Frankly though, I prefer them focusing on the Showa era right now since Bandai shoved Heisei down our throats.

    Personally I'd like them to focus on everything so we have a wide variety because for me there's probably one Showa suit left that i want

    Well, I wish NECA would get off their high horse and also do other monsters. I want Anguirus 68, Mothra 64, Rodan 56, Ghidorah 64, Gigan 72, King Caesar 74, Titanosaurus, and Megalon.

    I don’t think it’s up to them, Toho chooses which monsters they’re allowed to do. As much as I’d be all in for some decently articulated showa monsters I think the odds are pretty remote.

    But NECA stated a year and a half ago that they now have access to Toho's entire library of monsters, they are just choosing not to do the others.

    Oh yeah, forgot tthe two Showa MechaGs on my list.

    What I'm really hoping is that, spoiler for Kong vs godzilla:










    We get a neca mecha g and kong and godzilla. I'm not expecting the other kaiju as that's unrealistic. But if they make a mecha g, it'll sell. So hop to it!

    As per some conversation you missed months back, NECA could do other monsters. They’re choosing not to now. They even vetoed older versions of Mothra and Rodan.

    I don’t think they have the Godzilla vs. Kong license at all.

    No, but I think the Showa era is the best, especially the early half. When Tsuburaya was in charge he wouldn't let his crew get away with half-assed shots the way Kawakita did in the 90s.

    I also love most of the Millennium movies, but right now I want to see more Showa stuff since there is very little in the way of it. And like I said, Bandai crammed Heisei down our throats with the MonsterArts line.

    I guess they did but I'm done with SHMA unless they do legendary Kong because they are way too expensive i honestly can't see any Ghidorah going for 200$

    Oh wow I hadn’t seen that update from Neca. That’s super disappointing but I guess I understand why they wouldn’t try to market $25 figures in the US of monsters the mainstream audience won’t know when they didn’t even think Ghidorah would sell enough to be worth it.

    I guess we can keep dreaming of Showa monsters that don’t carry a ridiculous price tag like the Revoltech Anguirus, Gigan and Rodan.
