And then people would complain that we wouldn't be getting enough new figures and whine that remolds and repaints count as such.


Not if they do it intelligently. Get a couple new figures out, then start alternating between new and repaints and I won't have a problem with that. If it were to be new figure, 6 months goes by and then they do a repaint, with nothing for another 8 months, then it would be problematic.

Then, maybe, you should collect a different line.

What does any of that have to do with anything I said?

How did we go from "Getting 2 versions out is easy..." to "You shouldn't collect the line?"

Jesus, what is with this board? Even when I post positive comments someone turns it negative.

"This board." Blame the individual not the aggregate.

The idea of alternating and even overlapping releases I too am okay with. Fill in a slot with a repaint or retool and then focus time on developing a new sculpt within that time slot. At the least, you just put $20 into something else which isn't all bad. Granted, still seeing repaints might make an eyebrow twitch here and there, but that's to be expect I guess.

Repaints are fine by me as long as they aren't boring like atomic breath versions. Batte Damage, alternative paint like the poster g'54, and so on are cool and clever repaints. A NECA G'68 with bloody damage from Godzilla vs Gigan would be a great reissue after they make a 68

An Oxygen Destroyer damage G54’ where he’s partially skeletal, now that’s where the moneys at

I'm skeptical that NECA will only do characters they can get more than one release out of, unless they really plan to work it out of the figures; I see this being more of a guideline for Godzilla in particular. On that note, I think Godzilla 1968 and 1973 are practically shoe-ins, since those two versions took prominent damage in subsequent films. Accompany them with co-star figures like Gorosaurus, Gigan, Megalon, etc., and we're good.

The most pressing question right now for me, though, is this: can we get a Kong '62?

Um... how do you figure that? They can get two releases out of every monster Toho has.

73 Goji can be turned into 74 and 75 with just a head swap.

68 Goji can have a 71 and 72 version

64 Goji can have two versions.

That MegaroGoji is a gold mine though that's at least 3 sculpts plus atomic and battle damaged versions.

Um..... I don't think a '74/'75 would sell well if it came after a '73 figure, they look the same at first glance*. They could work if they those the variations, like a '74 that's struck by lightning or something.

*then again Neca's done like a dozen normal looking Xenomorphs.

A original Godzilla who has been damaged by a weapon which destroys the very thing we breath, oxygen, and reduced to a skeleton would be quite the figure that gathers the money.

74/75 are my favorite. The serious face is way better than the friendly face from 73. If they go that route I hope 74/75 first.

A skeleton 1954 with oxygen destroyer accessory?

holy sht! take my money!


edit: wait, shoot,..that'll never happen because they can't repaint it into anything. It's a one time mold and they're not going to do that.

Most kaiju you can get at least two molds of, just some ideas/examples
Do a normal Baragon and then a Burrowing Baragon
Manda with the head from dam and the head from Atragon
A 1964 Rodan body can be reused with an altered head for a DAM Rodan
DAM Damaged Showa Ghidorah with blood on neck and tail

I just had an idea, what if NECA decided to make figures based on the Aurora Godzilla model kit.
Image
They could do two versions of it if Toho lets them, a normal one and a glow-in-the-dark one.

and if that could work what about one based on the Shogun Warriors Godzilla?

I could see them repainting the 62 and calling it the aurora.. that could honestly really work

And thanks fermix! Really appreciate it man :)

My Atomic Shin 2.0 died due to heat damage. Heat made the jaw weak and I didn’t touch it for a while so the jaw came undone. However it’s not a big deal since the Neca Atomic Shin is coming out soon. So with this extra shin I decided to do some major customizing. Gonna make it into a normal Shin Godzilla again, but I’m making a major alteration to the head. Here’s a proof of concept before I actually had the jaw attached correctly Image

God I love customizing

Nice repaints, really brings out the sculpt.

Although NECA is certainly known for repaints, I get a feeling that, if they're able to do more with the Godzilla franchise, they're probably not going to be as reserved as they have been in the past. I'd love to see more unique figures like NES or Poster '54 - you hardly ever see other companies making such niche toys.
