Sorry guy's I should have known the terminology.

But yeah, I don't have PR job nor a 24' Goji. I feel ashamed.


That 24' is a sexy beast. Neca should have had a 19,54 and Shin out in that scale by now.


A 24 inch Godzilla 2019 would be cool, but if they ever make a 24 inch Godzilla 1954 & Shin Godzilla(Shin would probably be 36 inch because again, DAT TAIL!!!!) I would preorder them in a heartbeat. Heck I also wouldn't mind a 24 inch Godzilla 1984 provided they make some improvements over the 6 inch figure.

Very possible. I wish I had bought MORE of NECA's PR stuff when I had the chance...

I asked them about 24 inchers a while ago but never got a response

So I already pre-ordered SH Rodan and Mothra, mostly for the lovely Rodan. As for Mothra, though, it's hard to tell with the promotional photos as what's better between the SH and Neca Mothra.

How is Neca Mothra, if anyone has it? Is the paint, sculpt, and articulation good? More importantly, are the joints sturdy? (This is my biggest worry for the Monsterart). I don't usually get multiple figures of a single character design, but I see a $22 dollar Neca Mothra and I'm wondering if it would be a smart idea to play it safe and buy it.

I got lucky with my Mothra, my wing joints hold well, but I’ve seen others less fortunate.

The paint is pretty basic, though she’s so small you’ll hardly notice on a shelf, you mainly see the wings which look amazing, the translucency really makes a difference. I touched up the paint on mine but I plan to do photography, and you’ll notice in that instance.

It's decent, definitely not worth the $27 price tag, since it's essentially a glorified accessory with nothing to make up for the price tag. But while that's mainly due to the design itself, she should be at least 2x larger to match the films size.

SHMA made the same mistake too so it's kinda a lose/lose. However, SHMA makes up for that by having intensely painted wings and seemingly extra articulation in the body.

NECA somewhat skipped out on their wings by having some nice yet bland translucent wings.

I feel like i'll get a better deal with the Rodan 2 pack. Even though i'm essentially paying triple for a Rodan lmfao.

You can say that again about the size. In the film Rodan was trying to bite Mothra's head. As a figure, Mothra's entire body is the size of Rodan's head!

Exactly, remember when Mothra flew down from the sky before attacking Ghidorah? She looked massive! (Or at least bigger than Godzilla's head)

I have Mothra and unfortunately the wings on mine are kinda loose. I pretty much leave her in one pose so it's not a total dealbreaker but you might be gambling on a figure with loose wings.

Retail is $22.99 and she is starting to show up at Target stores. Depending on your state you can probably get her for under $25 w/ tax and compared to the Jakks which can only be bought in a 2 pack for around $15 (I think) I would say it's a decent purchase.

sculpt is good, paint and articulation are alright. the legs will hold position, but the wing joins on mine are ever-so-slightly loose, they'll hold but will slowwwwwwwly fall over time, or if bumped. the legs and wings are made of a very soft plastic, and came slightly bent out of the box. paint on the wings is good, and the eyes are a striking metallic blue, but the body is a dull brownish-grey.

while not exactly to scale, it looks good next to my MonsterArts Godzilla. I'll probably be skipping the SHMA Mothra due to its weirdly orange body.

Mine is basically perfect. The sculpting on the body is Fantastic for such a small Figure, and the paint really brings out the details, the wings have a really nice sculpted texture, and the translucent plastic is wonderful, the paint on the wings is fairly good too. The base she comes with is painted Fantastically and the stand holds her High enough so she is out of the way on the shelf and she can easily sneak in between figures. Mine has no lose joints so she holds every pose. I’d say it’s worth it for $25 especially when you take into account how good she looks, and how exceptional the base looks. I’d say she scales well with Godzilla especially since I’ve heard reports that the SHMA is SMALLER.

You know, people have been complaining about mothra’s size (or SHMA ghidorah’s sculpt accuracy) and I’ve been wondering how people can tell? I saw the movie twice and I can’t remember well enough to honestly say whether the figures are accurate or not. And it’s been a challenge to find decent image on google since the films not out on home video. But I did manage to find a couple gifs that I think illustrate that both NECA and SHMA actually got mothra’s size pretty right relative to the other kaiju. I mean, yeah, she might be a little undersized, but her body doesn’t look much bigger than ghidorah’s head. And Rodan is clearly bigger than Mothra and he was pretty small compared to ghidorah.

Btw, why do the spoiler tags make pics so tiny? I hate that. But I figured these (especially the second one) should be spoiler tagged.

We have an official Picture of Ghidorah before all the fancy lighting was done and it clearly shows how the SHMA sculpt is inaccurate in curtain ways. However for mothras size she is actually really accurate From the shots we see of her. Especially when paired with the Jakks 6” Rodan. Shame we never got to see her and Godzilla side by side, aside form that one scene.

There's a shot in KOTM that displays Mothra between Godzilla's abdomen, she's about the size of his midsection not counting her wings.

Then there's the other shot of Mothra flying down from the skies looking huuuuge lol.

Where can I find that picture (google failed me)? It would be nice to see a clear image of Ghidorah without all the lightning and rain and such.

She is fantastic. Fits the look of the character in the film better than any of the other options I have seen.

Neca used the correct scaling for Mothra, the movie made her bigger than her stats just like the Toho films.

Saw the movie for a sixth time today and I actually feel like the sizing is pretty close. The shot where she climbs onto Godzilla, you can briefly see his head and her body in the same shot and she’s only like slightly larger than his head.

It is correct. She's 52 feet tall and in the film it's most likely due to prospective that Mothra and Rodan and even Ghidorah look bigger in some shots and smaller then others. It's stupid :roll:
