Hopefully they won't end up being sex toys like the two batmans on the left.

NECA should fall somewhere between your traditional vinyl and SHMA for POA.

With Godzilla's tail, the possibilities are endless.
I will explain slowly why you are wrong.

^ HUMANOID! I was talking 'humanoid' vs 'non-humanoid' Jakks is gonna have to sacrifice a LOT of detail to pull this off, & I doubt that most of us are gonna like the result...

Of course. I never make a 'final' decision until a product is revealed...

The entire focus of such a thing is on the size. It's a relatively cheap ass toy, so prepare yourself for the reality. If you're not buying the figure for the sheer size of it, you're already going in with the wrong mindset.

I much rather have a big plastic brick for $40 than some light up articulated rubber duck at half the size for $200 any day.

Can't possibly praise something without poop talking something else.

Plus there might be a NECA 18". Not as big, probably 3x the price, but it's there. Everybody gets something.

Sounds like smack-talk directed at SHMA Biollante...

Oh wow, that last part does fit Biollante... Sorry guys, pure coincidence. I was just referring to some things being as good as others.

Actually, the price point and light up feature are also spot-on. Alrighty though.

Yeah, I know, that's pretty weird for me to pull a comparison out like that and sum up Biollante to a T. (I have nothing against SHMABio, completely different thing from a JAKKS figure).

Man those Batmans cracked me up. :lol: I am wondering though if the Godzilla will take up too much shelf space and turn off a lot of retailers? It may even be in parts that have to be put together. I only recall toy stores carrying that "Ultimate Godzilla" figure in 1998.
Katatonia, Within Temptation, The Panic Division, Tool, Poets Of The Fall, Lacuna Coil, Flaw, Breaking Benjamin, The Birthday Massacre, Lunatica, A Perfect Circle, Evanescence, Bush, Silverchair ('94-'01), Evergrey, Metallica, etc.

I'm still betting that the tail is detached, and the front side of the figure would be facing out of the box. Like the Trendmasters 10" figures.
