They should have tried a Mothra vs Godzilla 4 pack for $100 maybe even $120.
The one thing I want to see in life,TOHO buy Gamera.

$100 is way too Much. That’s only 3 unique scupts as one of the larva would have just been the same as the other and the Mothra Vs Godzilla Larva are tiny. If they theoretically did do one instead of the stand alone 64 release it would probably have been closer to $70. Yes mothra imago is large, but she wouldn’t really Need to have more articulation points than say what the revoltech mothra has.

Hopefully Toho’s plan to make Godzilla global will open up the doors for companies to do more stuff from the franchise. I just want to have a showa Gigan before I die; from either Neca or shma. I don’t want to go buy the revoltech one and then one of them announce a figure.

It's high but it would have to be worth it for Neca. Mothra imago and Godzilla with his breath affect are or would be 22.99 I think so Neca wod charge that for the larva as well. That's about 90 for regular releases in store unless Neca would double pack the larva.

plus they don't really respond to things they don't like despite substantial demand (alien 3)

I don’t think that He’s really a big fan of Godzilla (that’s why there’s not really any hype surrounding their Godzilla releases from them) and if he doesn’t really care for the property, he damn sure isn’t gonna make a figure of one of the most controversial Godzilla’s to date.

Yeah, I like all the ones they’ve made (I have them all) but there’s no point wasting time and the potential for a great Godzilla line. You can try to say it’s Tohos fault but it’s their ip and should expect a profit from it. It’s just that NECA has no interest (Randy) in making anything other than Godzilla. Again, due to them or really Randy’s lack of interest with the license.

Sucks that the line is at the mercy of this Randy dude

I very much consider TFA to be half-assed. What a generic film which only fed on nostalgia, it brought nothing new to the table.


That's not true. C3PO had a red arm.

Isn't Randy just the spokesperson? I thought he had a lot less control on the final decisions then everyone complains about

He owns the company. If it’s something HE doesn’t like they won’t make figures of it. NECA is essentially just his own personal figure company that he gets to make figures that he wants. It just so happens they release these to the public as well.

Randy does not own the company. This is important, he is the Director of Product Development.

Randy doesn't own the company but as the director of product development he's essentially the person in charge of making decision on what is or is not made.

^ As Ultraman Goji said. That's it. He controls what is made, and what is NOT made. He dislikes G98, so as long as he's running the joint, it WON'T get made...

Randy has tweeted out several times in the past about how much he hates Alien 3 and would never make a newborn figure, yet here we are. He has final say, yes, but he is also responding to the market.

I think it'd sell nice, it'd be the first major figure of G98 and they could easily repaint it to make the first figures of Zilla or Godzilla Junior (TAS). And, as I said, create versions based on the hatchlings if they wanted to, like Razor Fang who is red and purple with huge teeth.

Idk, I'm just thinking about it, It's not like I actually expect to ever see one, lol.

Their tnmt pack on loot crate is fully funded. Maybe in the future, they could do a G’98 on loot crate.
