I'm not. The SHMA's tail is longer - movie accurate, in fact - and fully articulated. NECA's is shorter, and as we ALL know - the back half is rubber with a bendy wire in it.
You're right, the tail is a tad longer on the MA, and I'm sure the spines are going to be rubbery instead of a harder plastic, but I don't like how the nails on the MA are the same color as his skin tone and the $90 price difference is quite steep. That's not to say the NECA is better, as they both have their positives and negatives, but after getting 3 Kiryu Godzilla's with derpy eyes, I think I'm going to give NECA the benefit of the doubt here and pick theirs over the MA. I do wish NECA didn't use a generic white background for their photos though.
