you will not regret it. I have every single Neca Goji and the new Bio-Goji is absolutely fantastic.

He's here, and I do not regret it! He's big, bulky, and the sculpt is stellar; once again, the pictures don't do it justice. The inaccurate eyes are the only thing to complain about, and really I don't even mind them. They actually make it look more ferocious than the suit did, which is cool. Now I just need to get the damn tail attached, which is always needlessly stressful...

EDIT: And it's on. Holy God, that took some doing. Almost an hour, and literally harder than anything I've done at work in years. :cry: Had to heat the tail up, slather the joint and socket both with dish soap and olive oil, and strain until both arms were sore, but I got it. Totally worth the effort, though, because this comes real close to surpassing Kinggoji as my favorite NECA figure, in large part because the gigantic tail and its articulation are so impressive. Damn you again, Playmates, but at least NECA went out at the top of their game.

Finally have the Neca Godzilla line wrapped up. I ordered the variant 89 and 03 from targets website. Also got the reissue 2014 for the new packaging. It also holds a sentimental value as well. Due to being the figure that kicked off my Godzilla collection in 2014.

Left my Covid-19 comfort zone to pick up the missing NECA figures. Went to Target, bullseye *rimshot*. Got a MosuGoji in a worn box, but hey - can always pick that one up later. Pondering on the way home where I can pick up a normal BioGoji and KiryuGoji. I know Midtown Comics has them, but I have a soft spot for just going to the store myself if possible. Realized the local comic book store is still opened. Haven't been there since the shut down. There's a reason why I call it ol' reliable. Right there, as soon as you enter on the rather dedicated Godzilla shelf. Basic Mosu and KiryuGoji. Super happy.

Absolutely NECA's best so far. Though, someone refresh me, what happened with the rights and NECA and these guy production run? Correct me if i'm wrong and im sure I am, NECA lost the rights and was able to do only 1 production run of the final set? Am I correct on that, that's what I'm remembering.

That is pretty much correct, Neca lost the rights to produce these figures only 1 month after the standard 89 and 03 releases with the repaints just bearly being shipped out within a month of the standards. If I’m correct Everything Got reissued in mass before Neca had to stop production and target supposedly bought all the stock(which if you’ve seen a lot of targets right now this proves true) The standard 89 and 03 on only had one production run that seemed relatively small mostly due to them selling out the second the line was announced to be ending. The repaints are more plentiful due to them being in less demand. But overall there is gonna be less of these molds in the world simply due to the way they came out.

Godzilla 2003 is just sooo good. Assuming Brodie Perkins sculpted both the 89 and this figure, major props to him for nailing the 03. I plan on picking up at least 89 soon, but honestly, these things kind of sit on the shelves here at my Target so I'm no real rush to get them.
They must love the smell of Bvlgari. Yeah, I'm doing a little product placement! I gotta get paid, too!

Still dreaming that neca comes back with the godzilla license and we get a 68, 74, 00 and 04. Those are the most notable ones to make and are distinctly different in design to one another.
