Review: NECA Godzilla 2001 – Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

Now, I did not expect to ever find this figure in-store! The NECA Godzilla 2001 figure is roughly a half year to year old at this time, but still a wonderful figure. NECA manages to capture the SokogekiGoji suit as best as they can, but there are some flaws whether it be sculpt, paint, or articulation. Another issue with the figure is the quality control of the joints which can be observed in the video. Never the less having any figure of the SokogekiGoji is good in general. Please favorite,…

Similar to the update for S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Sigma, Premium Bandai has also listed the order page for the newest announced S.H.MonsterArts. This new S.H.MonstersArts is the “spit-fire” edition of Shin Godzilla, but is properly called the Fourth Awakening Version. Now, for those who have either seen the film or read the spoilers Godzilla effectively spouts highly concentrated thermonuclear beams not just from its mouth, but its tail and plates. However, the official S.H.Monsterarts can only perform the blast from the mouth and tail, as well as include Tamashii Stages. Orders will…

Review: S.H.MonsterArts Godzilla 2016 (Shin Godzilla)

The Monster of MonsterArts has finally arrived, SHMA Godzilla (2016)! Now, as seen in Hideaki Anno’s Shin Godzilla this incarnation is undoubtably the most gruesome looking one ever seen, as well as the largest to date. Along with being the biggest and the ugliest, it is also seemingly the strongest with a beam spamming body; too bad that version will most likely be a Web Shop Exclusive. The figure effectively captures the True King to its fullest form, with a few minor exceptions either due to selective paint applications and…
