I like the rainbow variants of other Hedorah figures like the sofubis but who knows what monsters Neca has liscensed so far? For all we know it is probably just the big four from Kotm. Also I'm sure it would take a while before other monsters made their way into the line since I'm Sure Godzilla takes priority.

I'm curious as to what Godzilla suits are next on the list for NECA to do. I wouldn't mind seeing a '64 (It could have an emergence version as a repaint)

I’d love for a Ghidorah 1964 repaint with blue scales and rainbow wings, ala poster version.
Yeah, Godzilla wins... sometimes. I mean, he was killed by Dr. Serizawa's patented bubble-bath formula, heartburn, missiles, and poor box office returns, got his ass kicked by a drunken, circus-escaped gorilla, then he was beaten by two newborn worms, yeah some “king”.

I’m probably gonna pick up another Shin Godzilla today. I want a normal, Uncustomized version to go with my Frozen Custom and the upcoming Atomic Shin. I already have the ultimate Neca Shin Custom so I won’t feel the need to custom the new ones I get Image. Also. Anyone have ideas on what the hell I can do with this monstrosity?Image

Damn, that 5th form looks really good, need more pics

I agree turn it into 3rd Form!

think you should buy another Shin and do a traditional Godzilla color scheme.

Considering the skinniness of the mold without the spines, maybe try and make the 3rd form?

What are those white spots on Shin's feet? They aren't on the original figure and I can't quite tell what they're meant to be.

I'm also nearsighted, which means that I see things up close CRYSTAL-clear, which means I can point out details & differences like the guy who sculpted the item. So, forgive me if there's only a handful of folks in these forums whose opinion I put on a par with MINE...

Extra toes. Something The Neca lacked. I’ll post closer photos soon.

Sell it as the intermediary between form 3 and 4.

Gonna post the Video Gallery’s so I don’t clog the thread with large photos. Humanoid custom:
And here is my Neca Shin Godzilla Overhaul.
There are some production photos in the beginning of each video. And comparison photos with my original Custom Shin in the Overhaul Video. Also for the majority of the Shin Overhaul Video, the extra tail segments weren’t attached and it had the original spines on. I swapped the spines with my original custom shin as the ones on my Overhaul had a QC issue that made them look mushy.

What mods did you do to the head/neck to get it more accurate? This area is my only real issue with the figure.

Confirmed that my nearest Target is carrying this line. They must be selling, too, because the only figure in stock was a lone Shin. Not a fan of the head on that figure, but was still nice to see one in the wild.

Can confirm my Target was selling them too along with a giant horde of Ultimate Jasons from F13, which is pretty cool to see.

I've been stalking my two local Targets up until yesterday and still not a single sign of anything. It's actually been really disappointing.

Well I completely removed the jaw and head attachment entirely. I cut off everything from the seam line in the head down. Then I loosely attached the two bottom jaw parts to the neck and made a new Hole on the head for the ball joint that was positioned straight down instead of at an angle like it originally was. Then I made sure everything lined up correctly when the mouth was closed and I permanently attached the Bottom jaw to the neck.

Ah man, it never even occurred to me to mod a Shin to be in his frozen form. That's a sick idea. My Targets are finally pretty loaded up with them, which makes me very happy. Gonna snatch up two Shin's this weekend, one for myself, and one as a prize. Might grab a third when I can to mod him.

It would also be interesting to mod a NECA Shin in his statue form, like over in Japan, right now. That could be fun to mess around with the paint for that.
