    It's allegedly supposed to transform and come apart, as it's a crossover with some other line too.

    They really are grasping at straws at this point. I feel bad for anyone who is into Showa or Millennium. Btw, does anyone have any idea how big MechaGodzilla 74 is supposed to be? I do hope is isn't a shrimp like the previous Showa Godzilla was.

    If you're talking movie size Mechagodzilla along with all the Showa Godzillas are 50m tall. As for the '64 Godzilla figure he is small because that was when Bandai wanted them to be in a more accurate scale with one another but obviously that went out the window, (Millennium, GMK, and '54 are way too big.) Since the Mechagodzilla '74 figure hasn't been officially revealed no one can say exactly but I guess that he would be around the same size as more recent Godzilla figures.

    Still find that funny since the 64 Godzilla is not even close to being in scale with the Heisei ones. If they wanted scale, they would have made the 64 one as tall as Junior.

    Judging from (iffy) photos, it's the same size as the Heisei Mechagodzilla.

    Yeah, from the photos MechaG 1974 is in the same scale as everyone else. Godzilla 1964 was a test and despite being a great figure, no one ever leaves out how small it is and how they wish it fit with the other monsters. Godzilla 1989 is going to be in that same boat. He's probably the most accurate looking Godzilla in the line and he's just too damn big. ONly positive to the size is that it can finally face off with Cherno Alpha and look good.

    I'm surprised they repeated a scale blunder in the line but they seem to have planned G89 long ago. I'll be ordering it so good for them I guess.

    It seems that Bandai intends to keep Moge/Desu-Goji as the generic Heisei figure for the mainline. I assumed that this is why they specifically chose to go with Bio-Goji for the Kou Kyou Kyoku one-off. (At least I assume it's intended as a one-off).

    Yea, trying to maintain scale amongst the various Godzilla figures was a lofty goal to begin with. To bad Godzilla 64 is now stuck being the odd man out.

    I'm pretty sure Godzilla 1964 and Godzilla 1989 are close to scale with each other. If you're going for the Showa to Heisei scale.

    89 Godzilla is still too large compared to 64. 89 would probably scale better with 54 and the Millennium Era Godzillas.

    Kou Kyou Kyoku Godzilla

    This guy finally arrived last night. The sculpt and paint applications are everything you would expect from SH Monsterarts so it's very detailed and accurate though I wish they painted the inside of his claws. The articulation is fine for the most part, there is no waist articulation due to the electronics and the head has limited left and right movement also due to the electronics in his head. The sound is very nice with two songs that play for more than a minute each, and plenty of roars and groans. Sound effects can be played over the songs which is a welcomed feature. Plus the volume is loud enough that it can be heard in another room. Sadly the light up gimmick is the weakest part of this figure as the dorsal spines could be brighter and is much dimmer than it shows in the package and the mouth does light up but doesn't not shine so it in no way will be able to light up an effects part.

    Sculpt 10/10
    Paint 9/10
    Articulation 7/10
    Sound 9/10
    Light 6/10


    Overall 41/90

    The neck looks a little long on that 89 Godzilla.

    Those effect parts are from other toys.

    Wow. The more I see of the figure the less I care about the movie. The thing looks hideous.

    I thought that effect part seemed too thick for his tail blast.

    When then you're missing out Shin Godzilla was a really good Godzilla movie that was well shot with some phenomenal camera angles, great music, the story was engaging with a political world backdrop, and the special effects were great. Also Godzilla appears in broad daylight unlike that lackluster Hollywood Godzilla we got two years ago. So if your gonna pass on an excellent Godzilla movie just because you don't like the art design that's your problem. Also people initially didn't like Wind Waker, Final Fantasy IX, and Transformers Animated because of the art designs and those all become by and large classics among the fans.
